Summer is creeping up on us and the last thing we need is dry, sahara desert hair. I said it - we've been all there! Am I right or am I right? Aside from the rays of the sun doing a number on our hair we also style with hot tools, use hair products that can be damaging to the hair, not go for our monthly haircuts, etc. You get where I'm going here. That is why I am here today to talk about the difference between a "regular" hairspray and an "alcohol free" hairspray. Let's dive into it!
Let's talk alcohol - an amazing friend at 2AM when you don't know how to dance OR the confidence you never knew you had to go talk to your crush. But when it comes to alcohol in the hair? It's your worse nightmare. Think of it like this - You know when you've had too much to drink and you're feeling extremely thirsty for some water? Well it does the exact same to your hair. Alcohol dries out your hair and becomes very very dehydrated. We want to avoid our hair from becoming as dry as the desert...
And in order to avoid dehydrated hair we want to introduce two of our alcohol free hairsprays. Luscious, soft and hydrated hair here we come!
Kenra Professional Alcohol Free Hairspray
This product is lauded as "the first professional alcohol-free hairspray." It allows the hair to maintain its moisture levels while offering extra-firm hold. Plus, it dries down to a shiny finish, which makes the hair look healthier. And although this claims to have extra firm hold you can still easily run your fingers through the hair which is our favorite part!
AG Style Aerodynamics Hairspray
Okay so the Aerodynamics is not totally free of alcohol but it is LOW in alcohol. This hairspray is fast-drying, fine-misting and provides medium hold with high shine. Just like the Kenra hairspray, Aerodynamics has amazing hold that is touchable and brushable!
The next time you're curious about alcohol free hairsprays, try this! Use a regular hairspray for a week and check out the feel and texture of your hair. After that, use one of our recommended alcohol free hairsprays and again... check the feel and texture of your hair. Trust me, you will notice quite a difference!
To summarize, alcohol in hair spray isn't all that harmful, but it can do a number on your hair's moisture and nutrient levels, which is why a few of us do prefer to use alcohol-free formulas. Click the pictures above to shop!
