COLOR WOW GET IN SHAPE 2-IN-1 WORKING HAIRSPRAY*
Hey Beauts! I'm not sure why, but I've always had a funny old relationship with hairspray. Funny in that I pretty much hate it. My hair just generally rejects it, it either goes all crispy and gross or does absolutely nothing at all. So honestly, I pretty much gave up and have gone without hairspray completely. Until now.
The lovely people at Color Wow sent me a few bits to try recently and among those bits, was this '2-in-1 Get In Shape Working Hairspray'. I was really interested in this product as it claims to be different from a regular hairpsray in that it contains high-elastic shaping resins that give the hair flexible hold without ever building up and allowing for constant restyling throughout the day. Color Wow as brand is aimed towards colour treated hair, so this hairsprays is free of any rubbish that will dull or darken colour treated hair. It contains 'high gloss translucent resins' that give the hair 'maximum shine factor' that makes coloured hair appear more dimensional.
So, as a colour treated blonde, all of this sounded pretty perfect to me, but while I did desperately want to give it a try, I didn't really want to get my hopes up as it is still a hairspray at the end of the day. However, my hairspray hating days are over with this little beauty. I don't know if it's high-elastic shaping resins or magic, but it has definitely changed my attitude towards hairspray. Provided I only ever use this one until I find something else I don't hate that is.
What's strange about this is that it isn't an aerosol spray, it's more a spritz, which I actually really like, because I feel a little more in control of what I'm spraying, which some people might find odd, but that's just me! Another thing I found odd, was the actual feel of the spray when I sprayed it on, or lack of it should I say! I sprayed this on and honestly thought I'd missed my hair, as it literally felt as though nothing was there, however after apply a little more, I realised that the spray was actually in my hair, it just felt natural and incredibly light. So of course, I just assumed it was another write off 'do nothing' product. But, after going out in the damp British air, I was shocked to get home, look in the mirror and realise my hadn't frizzed at all! While it was still flexible and my hair was still moving, it gave it a flexible hold, but kept my usual flyaways at bay all day long.
As I'd worn my hair down the first time I used it, I thought it was only fair to test the spray on an updo, so before a busy day with lots of clients, when I knew I'd have no time to touch up my hair, I put my hair up, gave it a spritz and forgot all about it. And what do you know? At the end of the say, my ponytail was still perfect! No silly baby hairs sticking up all over the place and no strands falling out. It also really does give the hair a shine, doubling it up as a shine spray, which I love as it's quite difficult to get blonde hair to be shiny, so huge bonus point on that one.
Overall, I'd totally recommend this whether you're a hairspray lover or hater, it's definitely a worth a go, if it can convert me, it can convert anyone!
