I have been using hairspray for over 35 years and have spent a lot of money trying to find the perfect hairspray. My hair is shoulder length and normal. Not a difficult head of hair to control. However, I wanted a hairspray that would not only hold my hair, but give a natural look at the same time. That's exactly what I found with TRESemme EXTRA HOLD. I have tried expensive salon-only sprays like Aveda- only to have my hair feel weighed down. I've tried inexpensive sprays that smell bad and do not hold. Even my beautician agreed that TRESemme was one she would recommend to her clients. TRESemme is affordable, smells good, and really really works great on my hair. I can spray it in the morning and go to work and it looks natural for most of the day! If I'm going out after work, however, I usually have to reapply the spray. I work with a lot of women in our office, and they come to me a lot for recommendations on various things. Believe it or not, I have been asked by two or three of my co-workers about the hairspray I use. They all agree that it keeps my hair in place in a natural way. All three woman have since switched to TRESemme and they love it too!
