I love these two kinds for very different reasons....... and it all depends on what kind of hairstyle you would like to achieve.
Big Sexy Hair Spray & Play by Sexy Hair
The can is a 10 oz can of goodness. Not to mention that when you purchase a can with the pink ribbon, you are helping to fund the cure for breast cancer.
The top is a push spray top that almost never gets caked or jammed with hairspray. The smell is nice and the spray is a fine mist.
I use this hairspray for an everyday look. I tend to backcomb my hair (just a little) to add a little more volume to my hair and give it a little more oomph!!
The holding power is fantastic without being really crunchy or crusty. My hair is actually pretty pliable after use, but holds steady. There is no crusty look, and it doesn't make my hair greasy quickly like other hairsprays I have used. It is not an extremely wet hairspray either, so you can style right away.
There are two kinds of this hairspray. The Spray & Play, and the Spray & Play Harder. I DON'T like the Spray & Play Harder. It does not hold very well, and makes my hair crusty.
I have not found another hairspray out there that is so perfect at styling my hair and giving me the look and hold that I want. It's a little bit pricey, but all worth it! I highly highly recommend it to anyone!
You can purchase the Big Sexy Hair Spray & Play at any drugstore that sells hair products, grocery store or beauty store. The stuff in the store tends to be older, so I prefer to buy it at a beauty store (Classy Chassis for anyone living in the Bountiful area, and it's cheaper there).
Average price is $17.99
got2b Glued Blasting Freeze Spray by Schwarzkopf
This can is a 12 oz can in a curious goldenrod yellow bottle. This hairspray is amazing at staying power for hairstyles that require some serious volume or hold, or extreme hairstyles (good for Halloween)
There is no lid to this can, and it is also a push top. This can has a misting style spray like the Big Sexy Hair, but not nearly as fine of a mist. The nozzle tends to get jammed with dried hairspray. You can just peel the spray off, or run it under hot water for a minute. It is understandable since the formula has such staying power.
I will use this hairspray mainly when I want to put my hair up into a ponytail or a top-knot, and want to bump up the crown of my hair pretty high, so it is not sitting flat on top of my head.
After I backcomb a section of hair, I will spray the back and fold the hair forward to dry and continue doing this in rows. I don't let it dry for too long, or else I can't get the hair to go back down enough to style to look normal. Your hair will literally stay where you want it will this spray. There is a little bit of a crunch to the section where you spray, but it's not bad at all.
My hair tends to look greasier quicker than with the Big Sexy Hair, but it's not bad. This hairspray is still amazing at what it does.
This hairspray can be purchased at any grocery store or drugstore. I have not seen it in beauty stores. It is fairly cheap and I highly recommend this hairspray to anyone that wants some serious staying power!
Average price is about $5-$6
