Haircare / Styling

Because sometimes cheaper is better!

I am waiting and hoping that my flight leaves for Dublin without a hitch tonight. In the meantime I decided a spot of blogging would be ideal!

If you read my last post you will know that I picked up an emergency hairspray at Target the other day. My hair was flat as a pancake and for some reason the water in the Chicago is making my hair limp, not a hint of the texture I usually get from washing in the water at home (could be the cold too).

I usually use Silhouette Hair Spray in Medium or Super Hold or Wella. I love both and came away without packing either of them.  I tend to go for fine mists rather than spritz type sprays, which I usually hate.

I settles on a mini bottle of cheapy Tresemme hairspray which I planned to use for the duration of my trip. (I bought the 4 star hold)

Rather surprisingly, I love this stuff!

This is definitely more of a spritz, rather than a mist.  It’s asy to direct to specific areas, for me that’s my roots and the tips for texture. It has a nice smell,  not too over-powering and longlasting hold.

It’s also cheap and there is less fume inhalation thanks to spritz versus mist.

I find that mists are good for all over fine setting, maybe the spritz is the answer to directional / specific volume. I don’t think I would spray this all over my hair to set it, it would be too much so I’ll still need a  fine medium hold mist for that.

I’m converted. Full size bottle here I come!

What hairspray do you use?

    I really used to love Dove hairspray just because it smells so great. I tend to use Wella these days…no matter how great the hold, I can’t bear to use bad smelling hairspray! (P.S. Amy, I’m in the States for the month visiting my fam, left Cork behind in the snow, we should have met up, haha) Love the blog, as always!

    Ooohhh! I love Tresemme! I use their shampoo and conditioner religiously. I’ve tried numerous different brands (both salon products and drugstore) and I keep going back to Tresemme.
