It’s unfortunate that I have fine hair, and lots of it. The problem with this is that even though I have naturally curly hair, it STILL doesn’t hold a curl all day. Sure I can just scrunch and go, but by the end of the day, my hair is flat, my curls look like I spent all day in bed. It’s just not pretty. So in summary, I need some sort of hair spray. Just a light coating.
I searched for awhile to find a hair spray that wasn’t completely synthetic. Let’s face it, finding a hair spray that will actually hold your hair and still be safe is going to be a challenge. I did a little research on Cosmetics Safety Database, (which we do advise to take with a grain of salt) and found that Giovanni’s L.A. Hold Hair Spritz had a rating of 2, which is considered relatively safe. Bonus that you can get it in Target and not have to run all over God’s creation to find it. Because while I will go to the ends of the earth for hair products, doing it with a toddler proves to be a bit more difficult.
The good thing is that it does what it’s supposed to do. It holds my hair in place like it should. It’s not overly sticky and it doesn’t leave my hair feeling too crunchy when it dries.
The bad things are that a small bottle is about seven bucks, which would be fine, but I seem to need more of it and therefore feel as if I’m buying a bottle every week. It also seems to make my hair feel a little on the dry side. It’s not terribly bad, and I might be inclined to continue using it if they made it in a bigger bottle.
For now, this works, and it’s not horrible but once I find the motivation, I’ll be on the hunt for something else.
Get It: You can order Giovanni’s hair spritz directly online or you can find it in most local Target Stores.
