Holds well, but don't like the fragrance

By 

from Somerville, MA

Comments about Alberto VO5 Hair Spray Hold Extra 8.5oz:

I bought a can of VO5 hairspray in search of something, anything, that would tame my frizzy hair. It's always been unmanageable, with lots of flyaways, and can work itself out of any style I put it into. I was definitely looking for a maximum-hold product. 

 

Vo5 works well in that respect. I just style my hair, spray for a few seconds, and I can feel it working right away to keep my hair in place. It keeps my hair in place without looking too artificial. No 60s bouffants here! 

The thing I don't like is the smell. This stuff smells like...well...like hairspray. It has a very artificial, "chemical" smell that fills the room and just feels unhealthy, like I might be breathing in noxious fumes. I only like to use Vo5 hairspray in well-ventilated areas. I usually open a window before I use it. The smell also makes me suspicious about what they're putting in there and what it is I'm spraying. I've been using Vo5 less lately because I worry about that. I wish they would put more natural ingredients and scents into their hairspray. I like having a style that stays all day, but I'm not so sure about my hair smelling like chemicals all day.

VO5 equals super hold

Comments about Alberto VO5 Hair Spray Hold Extra 8.5oz:

My grandma used to always have a can of this VO5 hairspray on her vanity. I can still recall how it smelled. This was back in the day when big hair was a must and it took a special kind of hairspray to obtain that certain look. Wow, does this stuff hold! I'm talking monsoon strength winds can't touch this product. I don't think I could stand to have my hair that hard on a daily basis, but it is great for those special occasions when you pay a fortune to get your hair done and don't want it to fall down...like prom or your wedding! Like I mentioned earlier, the smell is great, the hold is amazing and it is also super cheap! I think it still has the same price from when my grandma started buying it. I've recently moved and have yet to see it so I'm not sure if it's available everywhere. If you do see it, however, make sure to grab a can for those certain special hair occasions! You won't be sorry that you did!
