09 .24 .15 The Best Hair Sprays

I must preface this post by saying I generally do not like hair spray. The build-up. The aerosol. The smell. Maybe I have some PTSD from overusing my giant purple can of Aussie maximum hold in 1991, but I haven’t owned a can of hair spray for years.

I recently went on a mission, however, to find the right spray to hold my loose waves that were falling flat fast after my recent keratin treatment. I was amazed to find FIVE that I love. These aren’t the pungent drug store cans of the past. These sprays are so lovely, I have been asked more than once what perfume I’m wearing. And I don’t wear perfume. What’s best, though, is that they provide stellar yet soft hold, and, in many cases, UV and humidity protection.

Here’s to touchable, brushable hair that lasts.

Everyday Spray: Living Proof Flex Shaping Spray

I used this spray all summer because it has the brand’s patented anti-humidity protection that I swear by. It provides a soft hold and I easily used it for a few days in a row without my hair feeling filmy.

Strong Hold and Shine Spray: Oribe Superfine Strong Hair Spray

This is the big sister to Oribe’s amazing, original Superfine hair spray. I use this when I need extra hold and I’m not messing around. Oribe’s hair sprays are amazing because they also provide some shine, thanks to wheat proteins and plant-derived humectants. It also smells divine—it considers itself a lightly scented hair perfume. Bonus: it also provides UV protection.

Light Hold Spray: Shu Uemura Art of Hair Sheer Laquer

My other favorite for everyday, this beautiful spray is buildable to define styles and control the amount of hold you need. A true beauty luxury.

All-Day Firm Hold

A true hair care warrior, this powerful spray locks in styles yet is buildable. It also delivers 24 hour humidity defense.

Bonus: Sachajuan Root Spray

Since we’re talking sprays, I thought I’d mention this fabulous root spray. (I use it at the crown for some extra va-voom.)

P.S. This shampoo and this hair cream are the start of a lasting blow-out.

P.P.S. Add instant texture.
