I am back today with the this or that series! Hairsprays are the topic! I always feel like there is room for improvement with hair sprays, but maybe that's just me and my fine thin hair. But I compared my tried and true that I've been using for months with a new kind that I just picked up.
---> It's affordable, and comes in a big jar
---> It smells okay, not great, but okay
---> Holds well and for a while
---> Available at drugstores
---> When not used for teasing, gives a stiff look
This brand has actually worked pretty well for me. It works great for teasing, and holds my fine hair pretty well and for a decent amount of time. It's also a huge plus that I can get this at CVS or Meijer and not have to go to a Sephora. I can't say I love all items from this brand, but the hairspray does a pretty decent job with teasing.
---> Doesn't give a stiff apperance
---> Has many different formulas and holds
---> Doesn't take a lot to use
---> Doesn't hold as well with teasing
---> More expensive
---> Available at Ulta or Sephora
I was so impressed with the smell of this, I loved it! It worked great for keeping my styles in place, but didn't hold as well when I wanted to use it for teasing. It's also much more expensive - hence why I tried out the travel size first.
Overall, I think I'll end up using a mixture of both. It really depends on what you want to do with your hair. To tease, I will definitely keep using Not Your Mother's. For holding styles in place I'll use the Kenra. I would like to try a stronger hold of the Kenra and see how I like it, so watch out for that! For now, I would recommend either one for you to try!
