    When I need hairspray, I use Robert Craig's Finishing Spray /home/leaving?" class="Popup

    It rinses right out with water, without buildup. It does have a PEG-cone in it, but it's water soluable and way at the bottom of the ingredients. It has excellent hold, and botanicals to condition your hair.

    I really like the Dove Extra Hold hairspray...nice and moveable. I spray very lightly throuhgout, just to keep the curls 'stuck' to themselves. Plus for a little lift on the top. :wink:

    There are many hairsprays without cones, but the biggest concern is usually the alcohol being a main ingredient. If you only use it for special occasions, I'm sure it wouldn't noticeably dry out your hair.

    You may be able to substitute spray gel for hair spray.
