I have been waiting for months to get my hands on this hairspray! I finally found my bottle at Target for $13.99 and have been using it for a few weeks now. I chose the extra hold for color treated hair.
Here are the results I found. The scent is equal to a bottle of Aqua Net when first applied. This is not necessarily a bad thing, just an opinion. The hairspray smells like hairspray. The hold is very good. When I set my hair in rollers and sprayed it, the hold was solid but not sticky. I honestly liked the hold because it wasn't too stiff and wasn't so soft that it would come out quickly.
As far as using it for straight hair, it should be the last product you use before leaving the house. I would not layer this product with straightening products or your hair will turn sticky and there will be a white residue. Who wants that?
So, in my honest opinion, I do think this is a great hairspray for those getting ready for holiday parties. I think if you want big hair or you want your updo to stay put all night, this is the hairspray to do it. As for an everyday spray, I probably would stick with my old standby, Sebastian Shaper Plus.
Now please don't think that Moody Maria has given up hope that Sebastian is the only company that can make a good spray. Oh no, the search will continue high and low.
My best friend asked me just a few weeks ago, "What hairspray do you recommend?" It is tough when I have to say, "I'll get back to you."
So, is Elnett for you? Well, I know it's for me, because I love BIG HAIR. I also love DRAMATIC hair and I also love hair that stays. Elnett comes in four strengths so next time I will try a lighter hold.
