I decided the other day after a pretty successful meeting that I needed a treat, so winged my way to the nearest beauty store to indulge in my first ever hairspray. After knowing this product is used a lot, I finally indulged. The L’Oreal Elnett Satin Hairspray, seemed like the stand-out product. Ok now for the good bit, this 500ml bottle put me back Rs.575, it is almost double the size of other hairsprays & hence the price is justified!
I have been testing this out for the past few days and I have to say that it has taken a little bit of getting used to. I think it’s great and every bit deserves its iconic status. This Elnett Satin formula contains texturising powders that ‘wrap hair to perfectly mimic the backcomb effect while keeping hair silky soft and shiny’. Perfect! And it does work. You don’t quite get the dramatic volume that you get with some good dry shampoos but then you don’t get that heavy, almost dirty, feel either. Also it’s quite buildable so you can get good volume by layering it in. I find it particularly effective if I lift sections, spray into the roots & then massage with my fingers. It’s also great sprayed down the lengths to give that lived in look. It holds really well too – which is what you’d expect from a strong hold product. So it’s good news all round. And Elnett Satin brushes out fairly easily leaving your hair near enough to how it started, feeling clean and fresh, if indeed you started off with clean and fresh hair! It doesn’t wash it for you! I’m loving this and I’ll be sure to keep a can of this in my hair stash.
