Has this humid weather got you tired of trying to tame your tresses yet? This week I am giving you the run down of my favourite hairspray to help you maintain your unmanageable mane.
With 12 different hairspray options; the key is to find out what you need. If you are looking for a good, every day and easy to use hairspray, Paul Mitchell’s Hold Me Tight would be a great choice as it offers a flexible and lightweight hold without buildup. If you require a firmer hold, they also offer their Stay Strong spray that will offer a fast drying firm hold for those up do’s.
Not that you needed any more reasons to love Paul Mitchell, but check out the impressive list of charitable organizations they work with. Organizations such as Bright Pink the only national not for profit organization that focuses on the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women, or their work with Baby2Baby, which helps low-income families receive necessities like diapers and formula.
AG’s Colour Care Ultradynamics Spray is a great everyday hairspray with the versatility to create any style you like. This hairspray works well for a light hold, but can be used to build hold without buildup and is formulated with Sunflower and Black Currant leaf extracts. The line has everything you need to have a great hair day from shampoo and dry shampoo to styling paste and gel and is available at Zenkai Salons and Burrard Hair Design as well as multiple other salons across the lower mainland. One more reason to love this local brand? They donate a portion of their sales to One Girl Can, a Vancouver based charity that works to educate girls in Kenya so they have healthier, violence free lives and can better support their own communities.
Kevin Murphy’s Bedroom.Hair offers a lightweight flexible and touchable hold that works for all hair types. Formulated with Sunflower Seed Extract and Vegetable Glycerin to help prevent moisture loss, it is the perfect choice to achieve that live-in look that is so sought after. You can hold your head high knowing that Kevin Murphy works to minimize the environmental impact of their manufacturing. All packaging is recyclable or biodegradable, and their ingredients are sourced with sustainability in mind as they partner with companies that use micro cultivation, organic growing practices, and ecologically sound wild harvesting techniques. Kevin Murphy also gives where they live; they support the work of Culture is Life, a charity working to end self-harm and suicide among Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander youths.
With so many great options out there, the key to a great hairspray is to choose what will work best for your hair type, whether it is safe for colour treated hair and what you need the hairspray to achieve. As the weather begins to change, keep in mind that you may need to also change up what you are using for styling as humidity, the wind, and other environmental factors come in to play.
Peace, Love, and Lipstick
