Clear mascara for flyaway or baby hairs

I have heard people have been using clear mascara to tame baby or flyaway hairs. I get a lot when I put my hair into a ponytail & was thinking of trying this. Has anyone done this? I so how long does it last & what's the best one to use? Thanks!

    Honestly, I've never even heard of that before! It could be a good idea, but at the salon we take a toothbrush and spray it with holding spray to smooth down the newly grown hairs and flyaways. Hairspray holds longer than mascara, I should think.

    What hairspray do you use? Is it CG?

    Between colorings, I use a little bit of brown mascara at my roots for grey coverage. This works great, and I've noticed has the added benefit of taming flyaways. So I definitely think clear mascara would work, but hairspray would be easier. If you are looking for a CG hairspray, ION makes an alcohol free one that is in a pump, and Garnier has a couple that are aerosol, depending on what you prefer.

    Thanks jlpmom23. I have been trying to find a CG aresole hairspray so I will look for the GF anti-humity one next time I go out. I'm thinking of using the clear mascara on the go bc I can carry it in my purse & I can use the hairspray when I am at home. The baby hairs drive me nuts & with it being 99 degrees & 95% humidity I have to wear my hair up!
