“ Brand: L'Oréal / Type: Hair Care / Contents/Size: 150ml „
I like to try new products on my hair and I was shopping recently when I saw this L'oreal Paris Studio Line Go Create Sculpting Spritz. I have rather unruly hair so I thought this product might help to keep the frizz and flyaway strands under better control.
The product comes in a 150ml sized bottle. The bottle is white plastic and therefore fully recyclable. It is shaped so that the base is slightly thinner than the top of the bottle in order to give you a better grip. The bottle is fitted with a pump action spray stick. The top can be fully removed by unscrewing for recycling purposes too. There are two information labels attached to the bottle.
I tend to find that L'Oreal products give information overload on their labels and this one is similar. Apart from the very long title of the product being printed a couple of times there is also further information printed onto the label on the front of the bottle. The information was sufficient enough to help me buy the product when I was in the store but I also think there is perhaps too much wording about the benefits of the product. For instance the label reads: "Ultra-targeted diffusion; Structures, constructs, shapes...gentle on the hair; Ultra-strong hold; Long lasting style...". When I bought this I assumed it would be a hairspray/hair gel type fixing spray from reading that information.
The label on the back of the bottle is printed with full ingredients as well as cautions and advice for using the product safely. There is also detailed directions for use which are demonstrated with mini sketchings as well as text. I should point out that there is a massive warning on the bottle that this product is very flammable.
Directions for use state that you can use this on damp (towel-dry) hair or dry hair. You spray it on and then work on your hair strand by strand to achieve the look you want. If you want a smoother look you can comb the hair down and if you want a messy look you can scrunch up your hair with your fingers. It is recommended to use a hairdryer to dry hair after use if you require an even longer lasting hold.
I hold the bottle about 6 or 7 inches away from the strands or areas I want to target. The spray button is depressed easily and the pump dispenses a direct straight line of liquid mist. The spray has a very strong smell that is very similar to that of strong hold hairsprays. It is easy to choke on the smell of this product so I try and breathe in the opposite direction to where I'm spraying! The scent is very sharp and reminiscent of alcohol and sugary fruits. The smell remains on the hair for a long time after applying and you can smell it as you move around.
The spray feels very wet but it starts to dry very, very quickly. If you use your hands to shape your hair then they become sticky straight away. The hair sticks to the skin and it becomes difficult to arrange the strands due to this. I've found the best way to use this spray is to have a shape already defined by brushing and then to use this to 'set' the look. When I use this on my curls I can reduce the frizz and create a more solid and prettier shape to the spiral. If I want to slick down a sleek up-do then I spritz this on then flatten with a comb or the edge of my hand.
The result of using the spray is that hair feels ultra stiff. I don't think I've ever used a hairspray that has resulted in my hair being as solid as when using this. It sort of feels like a cross between a hairspray and a gel. It leaves hair feeling like it has been encased in a sort of hard clay mold. I would not describe this feeling as being pleasant or attractive to touch. Despite this it is effective in creating a shape and style that does not budge until you brush your hair or until the next time you wash it.
I've found that this product can cause my hair to feel a bit tatty and difficult to manage once I've used it. That's purely because it's so strong. I have no problems washing it out though and once I manage to get my brush into my hair (after using it and the hair is set) the spray leaves no nasty residue nor does it damage the hair.
The product definitely provides a long lasting hold with little re-application needed to help re-set your style. The only issue I have with having a long lasting style using this spray is that my hair doesn't feel that comfortable after a while. If I have my hair down and I use this spray I can't run my fingers through my hair anymore - they just stick on a hard edge of hair! My hair can literally feel rock hard! Visually it looks good though. It makes hair look a little shinier and richer.
I think this product has good points and bad points. It basically does what it says it does on the label so if you are desperate for that kind of ultra solid hold then this product will certainly give you that. I find the strength of the product a little too extreme for me when using on certain styles though. It's best used on my wavy, thick hair to slick down onto the head for a ponytail. I also think a person with more talent for styling their hair than I have might be able to work wonders with a spray like this.
I would buy this again as I'm using it regularly and it is providing a use for me. I would recommend it to anyone who really likes extremely strong hold hairsprays and gels. I think it is a product best used by those who are used to styling their hair often.

I have very fine hair and not a lot of it, so I am always on the look out for something that will boost the volume of my locks and make them more manageable. I bought it for a holiday where I was doing a lot of travelling and wanted something quick and easy to help style my hair when I wouldn't be able to use a hairdryer or straighteners. It's now become part of my hair routine.
This sculpting spritz from L'Oreal is not sold particularly as a product for fine hair, but it works for me. It comes in a 150ml pump spray bottle and the Boots price is £3.19; it's even cheaper on Amazon where the price is £2.49 although that probably doesn't include postage. The pump is easy to use and gives an even amount of spray. You don't need much and this bottle has lasted me over 3 months although I don't use every day. The bottle says it keeps for up to 18 months.
The back of the bottle has directions for its use - basically spray on damp or dry hair and dry with a hair-dryer or scrunch with your hands for a more tousled look. For a more structured effect, the directions are to spray and work the hair strand by strand.
I have a shortish bob and am just aiming to give it height, bounce and a slight side flick. So nothing dramatic. I can't vouch for extreme styling therefore but it helps give my high lift, makes it look glossy and most importantly, it stays put without looking like it's sprayed in place with lots of hairspray. I tend to use it on dry hair - I spritz a little on and then use Velcro rollers while I shower - brush out and then apply a little more to flick back in place and finish styling. One word of caution is that it dries almost instantly so I find I need to be quick to get my hair in place. On the plus it's non sticky has a not unpleasant fragrance and keeps my hair in place all day.
==L'Oreal Studio Go Create Fixing Spritz==
I am always on the hunt for a hair product which will give natural looking curls and keep them in place throughout the entire day. In my quest to find the perfect product I have come up with a few favourite but nothing that I wouldn't drop for something a little better. I was unable to get my all time favourite curling product as I generally have to go to Boots so whilst I was in Morrison's doing my weekly shop I was able to pick up a bottle of this Studio Go Create Fixing Spritz which is a product I hadn't used before.
The bottle its self doesn't look overly appealing and to me I find it looks a little dated. However I couldn't fault the price as it was a good £3.10 pence for a 150 ml of the product. The claims of the product are that it will give vitality and protection because of the added pro- vitamin B5 contained in the ingredients. Not only this but it will give a lasting style held all day. This is exactly what I am after!
The bottle is easy to use and the small plastic cap that is over the nozzle got thrown away on first use as this I don't feel necessary to use and have to keep taking it off and replacing it. There are ridges down the side of the bottle which I find a great idea as this gives you extra support when holding the bottle and it has never once slipped from my hands like other spray bottles of this type have. The bottle is not a pressurised one which means you need to keep pressing the pump in order for the product to be sprayed from the bottle. A good amount comes from the bottle and it is evenly distributed as the spray has a good range but I do find I need a fair few sprays to do the job required.
I have had the bottle a good few weeks now and I am now coming to the end having used it on my hair pretty much every other day so it hasn't really done too bad as I thought it would have run out a little sooner than this.
Not only is the bottle easy to use but the product itself does work really very well. Its lightness seems to sit on the hair giving it ample hold and longevity throughout the day. The hair doesn't look overly crispy although if you spray too much in one area this will happen but to be fair because of the way in which the bottle sprays it is hard to over spray in one particular area so this happening will be very rare.
There is an aroma to the spritz but I can't say its a lovely one. It just has an aroma of hair products which is a little chemically and not exactly fragranced. However the fact that this smell is only around when spraying and initially applying the product to the hair this is not really a big issue for me.
Overall I have to say I am impressed with the way this product works. But the end of the day it is still keeping my curls/waves in place and this is one main aspect when looking for a good hair product. The second thing I look for is that the product doesn't make the curls/waves look overly fake or crispy and this again is something positive about this product as it leaves the hair feeling still pretty natural and not at all crispy!
I think I was surprised at how well this product worked seeing is it cheaper than my usual products and I can pick it up in Morrison's on my weekly shop! The only thing is that it does run out quicker than other products like this that I use and therefore I would have to look at cost in that respect. However it does tick a lot of boxes and I would think I would certainly be buying it again. So with this in mind I feel happy to award this product a great score of 4 out of 5 stars and I would recommend it highly!
I do hope that this has been of some help/interest to you
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
I have used L'Oreal hair products for some time now, they are afterall one of the better known brands when it comes to such goods. From previous experience I had found their haircare and hair styling ranges very accomodating for all types of hair and situations. The L'Oreal Studio Go Create Fixing Spritz comes in a white spray bottle and has a bright and funky design on it. The packaging is clearly there to attract the consumer, the L'Oreal branding is clear to see for the same reason. The liquid in the bottle does seem quite thin when you shake it, but on closer inspection it is a thick and gloopy liquid and is opaque.
I have short hair and so these types of products are great. Extra Strong hold hair products are most effective on short hair, but the strength is an issue for me. The fixing spray is quite quick to 'set' your hair in position. The spray has a good action to it and allows for no-mess and even application to your hair. As soon as I apply the spray I need to style my hair immediately, which I can imagine to be an issue if you don't have really short hair. The other issue is just how hard it holds. I would prefer something with strong hold but also a bit of natural movement, this isn't the case with the L'Oreal Studio Go Create Fixing Spritz. Movement is minimal, with a very unnatural and stiff hold it also makes my scalp feel tight if the spray gets onto it during application.
The 150ml spray bottle costs around £2-£3 from most major supermarkets and chemists. Personally I will go elsewhere in the future, and I will be sticking to putty and waxes in the future over a spray like this. Application is quick, but unfortunately what count against this product is the very fast drying of it and also the end result. One to avoid if you either don't have short hair or want some movement.
As a middle-aged woman who used to have beautifully thick hair, I have found that my increasing years (and recent ill health) have led to an unfortunate decrease in the number of hairs on my head! So I am always on the hunt for products that will restore some of the body and volume to my hair.
I was delighted to find L'Oreal Studio GoCreate Sculpting Spritz Ultra Strong Hold, which I have been using for some time now, and which I can wholeheartedly recommend.
The bottle is white, and the word 'Studio' can be clearly seen in black writing across the middle, with the rest of the product's name on the lower part of the bottle. You pull the little cap off to reveal the pump-action non-aerosol spray.
The bottle can be recycled, and the contents should keep well for 18 months after opening.
The instructions on the back of the bottle say 'Apply generously to dry hair. For more structured effects, spray and work the hair strand by strand. For a messy look: spray on hair then scrunch with your hands. For longer-lasting hold, dry with a hair-dryer'. Boots' website states that the product contains Pro-vitamin B5 which 'gives vitality and protection'.
L'Oreal's website gives the following styling suggestions:
'1) For structured effects on short and mid-length hair:
With your hair dry or damp, work each section with your fingers to achieve the shape you want. Then to fix your style, spray over the whole length of the hair from root to tip keeping the bottle at a distance of around 10cm.
2) To achieve a messed-up bed head look on mid-length to long hair:
With your hair damp, tousle and scrunch a large section of hair using your hands.
Next spray the product over this section and dry with a hairdryer. Follow this procedure, section by section, over all the hair until the desired effect is achieved.'
I have found that this Fixing Spritz is best used on dry hair, either to style or refresh your style. I take a fine-toothed comb, separate enough hair to fit around a velcro roller, spray the product onto my hair (it's quite a 'wet' product, although of course the spray makes this aspect easy to control) and comb through. Then I put the rollers in. Once I've finished I will either leave my hair to dry naturally, or give it a blast with a hair dryer and then let it cool down for a few minutes. I've also used this styling spray with curling tongs, and found that it helps make the hair easier to control as it gives the tongs something to grip on to.
The spray can make your hands feel a bit sticky during use, and can even (temporarily) make your nail varnish look quite dull, but this is all remedied once you've washed your hands.
It currently [as of 27th April] costs £3.05 at Boots, who have an offer of '3 for 2 mix & match across 1000s of haircare products'. Superdrug have it at the same price, with an offer of 3 for 2 on selected L'Oreal products.
This has been a staple part of my hairstyling routine for some years now. It really does hold your style, and I believe it gives excellent results for the price. I'm happy to give it five stars.
(This review is also on Ciao, under the same user name.)
Loreal are usually pretty good when it comes to hair products, delivering good results from high street and salon only brands. This is a one of the high street additions, which means it is quite affordable. The fixing spray is designed to hold styles and allow you to shape and control the hair.
You can apply it to damp hair and then blow dry, but I usually use a couple of products at this stage, so I do not like to use a spray until after the blowdrying process.
The bottle is easy to spot on shelves and is usually stocked in supermarkets and in Boots. I am not so fond of the logo which looks eighties to me and needs bringing up to date. It has a pump action nozzle which will allow you to target sections though. This is easy to use and the liquid comes out in pleasing genial bursts.
The best thing to do is to dry the hair, then decide which parts of the hair need attention. I usually go for the top of the head and the side areas, as these can lift up in sudden gusts of wind! A couple of sprays will give you something to work with. Now, you can either let the spray settle and act as a barrier against the elements, or you can grab a section of hair and try and mould it into a certain shape. You will have mixed results depending on how long the hair is. Shorter hair will respond better to being spiked obviously. If you have longer hair, it is best not to overload it with too much spray or it could saturate the head!
The spray does not feel sticky, but you do know it is there after you have sprayed it. It delivers more pliability than Elnett, though lacks the gracefulness of it. This would be useful for shorter styles and people who want to define sections rather than add a sheen over the entire head. Under four quid, it should last a couple of months, so not a bad buy.
For anyone who regularly reads my reviews they won't be surprised that once again I've bought some sort of thickening styling spritz to add to my ever growing collection of hair products. I have a very cute bob at the moment but feel the need to straighten my hair cos it's a frizzy, wavy mess otherwise! However I do find that although my look is neater that with my Ghds life is drained out of it so I like to use products that will add a little oomph to my hair and of course I like strong stuff because once I've styled my hair I want it to stay that way too!
Sleek white plastic 150ml bottle with clear plastic push to spray sprayer to the top of it and over that it comes with a clear plastic pull on/off safety lid. On the front in black and yellow writing I'm told it is L'Oreal 'Paris' Studio 'Go Create' Fixing Spritz 'Ultra-Targeted Diffusion' which Structures, constructs, Shapes and is gentle on the hair and provides ultra-strong hold for a long lasting style. On the back of the bottle I'm given and shown via diagrams how to use the product, cautions, size, ingredients are listed, the recycle symbol is clearly shown and finally there is bar-code on there. Nice, functional bottle and I do like that to the sides of the bottle there are like lines that create ridges which help you to grip and use the product for ease of use!
Directions For Use....
Apply generously to damp or dry hair.
For more structured effects spray and work the hair strand by strand.
For a messy look: spray on hair then scrunch with your hands.
For longer-lasting hold, dry with a hair-drier.
Me Using It....
Well this clear liquid sprays out quite wet but it is evenly sprayed and easy to target strands and sections if desired. It has a unisex and none distinct smell to it but I'd say the fragrance is slightly fruity if anything and once on the hair it loses that smell anyway pretty quickly.
So I basically spray it onto dry and already styled hair as I find it easier to use that way. I can either spray where I want to lift my hair and tease it with my fingers, or use rollers or a brush to 'set' it or of course style using a hairdryer. I have tried a variety of ways depending on how I want a look...to look lol.
For soft bounce and definition it's best to spray, style gently with fingers and that's that. If you want a hardened look (still not sticky though) rollers placed to lift hair where you need it for a few minutes will really add body and of course as we are told for ultimate styling use a hair drier but do use a nozzle unless you want to achieve a messy look!
It's easy to use, completely none sticky to use at all times and no matter how of the above ways use use it, it really doesn't make the hair stiff at all. I find that once I have finished styling my hair with this I have no need to further 'set' my hair with other products and whats more the results I achieve do stand the test of time and humidity, beat the frizz, add incredible shine without making my hair feel greasy or kacked up in any way shape or form. The only thing this can't withstand is rain. Although it doesn't create any major issue it does mean you will more than likely end up with losing the natural body in your hair even if we're talking a few spots. Humidity it can take on though so create party hair and get body popping ladies and gentlemen!
In my view this is a great every occasion product with a variety of uses and suitable for male or females. Great sprayed on hair as a regular hairspray for control, great to define choppy styles and keep fringes in place I'm very keen on this for it's multi tasking ways! Will definitely buy more when it's gone!
Available in all good chemists and supermarkets and I paid £3.99 for my bottle. However even though I think this is great if you really do want a product that does all the above but is cracking for adding body to hair (in particular) try L'Oreal 'Studio' Indestruction Volume Spray (I have done a review on this product and it really is awesome!).
