Any curlies out there using hairspray?? I haven't seen any posts referring to this unless I've completely missed them. The one I'm currently using has phenyl trimethicone, which I believe is a "no-no".
Has anyone found a CG friendly hairspray they like??

Thanks! :wink:

    I use hairspray. I buy the 'good stuff' that is water soluable from the Salon. It does dry my scalp and hair, but I haven't had problems with build up doing co-washes and/or low poo. I wish I didn't have to use it, but it's the only way I can keep my volume.

    Interested in what other info other curlies have.

    I also use hairspray - not all the time but when I want it to 'stay' I do. I use Joico - i love the smell of it and it's not sticky or hard looking. I have not had any issues getting it out with loo poo or co-washining.

    2happy - so what hairspray are you using? I've given up my hairspray and kinda miss it..:( I love the way it keeps my curls full BUT, I don't want the buildup.

    I use Aussie Sprunch Spray. I have also heard that Dove makes a hairspray that is CG safe.

    I don't feel the need to use hairspray much anymore, because my hair has become much more manageable and healthy after I started CG. Because most hairspray is loaded w/ drying alcohols I don't want to undo all my progress. however I do still use it for special occasions. I use Bed Head Maxxed Out. It works so well when I want to maintain my look but have it still feel and look soft. I haven't found any cheaper brands that work as well as of yet.

    I've used Paul Mitchell Freeze and Shine Super Spray for ..............probably 18 years. Recently I bought Redken forceful 23, and liked it, but my new fave is Tri HairCare AeroGel. It says "it has the flexibility of a gel and the control of a spray fixative. True. PM F&S was great when I straightened my hair, but I don't need that much hold anymore!

    They are all drying, of course, and don't leave my hair as touchable as I wish, but like I said, I need it to hold up the crown hair : (
