Today we thought we’d do a little spotlight on an essential hair care product that no-one should ever be without. We are, of course, talking about hairspray. Whether you’re keeping curls coiled, a quiff coiffed or declaring time on pesky fly-aways, hairspray has plenty of tricks up its sleeve. We’d go as far as to say that it’s nothing short of iconic. Brought to life in John Waters fabulous movie turned Broadway play, HAIRSPRAY is most definitely hair to stay!
Back in the ’80s and ‘90s it was the go-to product for anyone looking to achieve va-va volume and set those Hollywood glamour waves in place. The power dressing of the day demanded big shoulders and big hair to match!
Fast track to today and hairspray has had its fair share of formula makeovers, ensuring that this fine mist setting spray is now gentle, environmentally friendly, yet still powerful enough to deliver professional style, non-sticky, natural hold and shine.
Let’s take a look at some interesting facts about this classic product.
First up, it goes by a few names, hairspray being just one of them. You might also see it referred to as a setting spray, holding spray, or even a finishing spray. What really determines though whether it is indeed a hair spray, is whether it has the power to “hold” a style in place. That’s the important word to look out for in any product description.
Hairspray did use to have a bit of a bad rap for being housed in an aerosol can. Thankfully, that’s not the case anymore. In fact, according to the EPA, ozone-depleting agents haven’t been used in hairspray since the ‘70s. Of course, all of N4’s products are 100% Vegan, Sulfate & Sodium Chloride as well as Gluten and Paraben FREE.
You’ve two options when it comes to Number 4 High Performance Hair Care products; Mighty Hair Spray or N4’s Non Aerosol Hair Spray. Crucially, both offer excellent memory hold and deliver flexible, weightless, and non-flaking brushable, touchable style. We use a new, ecologically friendly sprayer for our Mighty Hair Spray while the green-goddesses among you will appreciate the all-day hold, shine, and lack of stiffness that the non-aerosol pump dispenser delivers.
You’ll also notice just how “flexible” today’s modern hairsprays are. It’s no longer about “locking” a style in place to such an extent that’s stiff and sticky. Now it’s all about brushable, touchable hold that provides plenty of pliability without any crunchiness.
Hairsprays are also designed to be “multi-tasking”. By that we mean it’s not just about providing hold, it’s also about delivering shine, fighting frizz and protecting against humidity. They’re also ideal for adding “texture”. If you’re out of your usual sea salt or sugar texturizing spray, you can create a similar effect using a flexible hold hairspray and using your fingers to tousle strands. Plus, as a bonus, you’re of course, getting natural hold too. Hairspray is also perfect for “spot-styling” and is especially useful for managing curls and tendrils. By applying hairspray directly to individual curls, they’ll stay in place for longer.
Talking of multi-tasking, take N4’s Mighty Hair Spray, for example. It’s the ultimate flake-free spray, with anti-humidity protection and imparting a fantastic iridescent finish. This lovely fine mist spritz can be easily layered to provide day-long hold and protection. The 2oz Mighty Mini is your perfect handbag essential.
