Disadvantages Awful smell, doesn't hold or control hair as promised!
This was a 'panic buy' before a weekend away more than a year ago. I had forgotten to pack my usual hairspray and mainly as a 'security blanket' I needed a spray.
Popping in to the nearest local Spar of all places this was the only one available so no pressing decisions to be made!
■■■ Silvikrin Hairsprays ■■■Silvikrin have a range of hairsprays available:
Mine falls in to the last category within which there are 6 hairsprays to choose from:
~ Coloured (the spray isn't coloured - it's for coloured / damaged hair!)
This was £1.98 for 200ml.Cheaper than my usual hairspray so all seemed good at the time of purchase.
■■■ Packaging ■■■The look isn't great. It's not awful but looks very dated and old-fashioned.
It is an aerosol
~ Reliable hold for up to 24 hours.
~ Suitable for normal or medium textured hair.
~ Gives extra strong, reliable control and manageability while maintaining flexibility.
~ Brushes out easily.
~ Adds shine.
It is very easy to use, just press down and aim and even after this long, the tiny hole from which the spray comes, hasn't blocked or become 'clagged' which I find can sometimes happen.~ Smell ~
~ The Hold ~Given that this is a 'firm' hold hairspray, I was expecting just that.
Unfortunately I didn't get that level of firm, reliable hold and control, as promised on the can. The spray gave very little control and if it hadn't been for the intense smell of the spray, I wouldn't have thought that I had used any.
A big disappointment!
■■■ Verdict ■■■Thank goodness that this cost less than £2. Perhaps you 'do get what you pay for'!
I found it to be a totally ineffective hairspray. There was no 'firm' hold and not even half an hours control, never mind 24 hours!No surprise that I therefore used it only a couple of times and ever since then it has been banished to the back of the bathroom cupboard.
