The Schwarzkopf Got2b Glued Blasting Freeze Spray is like no product I have ever used before. I have been struggling to find a hairspray to keep my hair together after a few hours of application. (Usually my hair does it's own thing after a few hours and then it looks a complete mess.)
I have very fine hair and found that the product was a bit too heavy for me. I do tend to go for quite a natural look with my hair. However, this product is great for my partner's hair. He is going for the David Beckham style 'quiff' look at the moment and so for a quiff he did normally use loads and loads of my of my hairspray. Since I have bought this though he only needs to use a small amount to keep his hair up.
This spray would really come in use for fancy dress occasions as well, because despite my hair been just a few inches past my shoulders I have faith it could pretty much put stick it all up. How it works is more like a gel than a hair spray but it doesn't make your hair feel like there is greasy gel in it, more like thick hair spray.
Schwarzkopf states that the spray is: 'Inspired by street styles and designed by stylists. This strong hold hair spray lets your hair freeze until the next shampoo.
Schwarzkopf also gives some helpful tips on how to style hair, which I would said definitely is helpful with a product like this as it's not like any ordinary hair spray:
For over the top spikes, spray heavily and twist tips.
Allow to dry and finish with an additional blast
For that messy look, spray hair from root to end and massage with finger tips I a circular motion
Finish with a direct blast to cement your style.
For maximum effect, use got2b glued spiking glue in your wet hair and fixit with got2b glued blasting freeze spray.'
The hairspray comes in a magnificent eye catching yellow spray can with a nozzle that really makes it look unique in comparison to any other hair sprays on the market, One of the reasons I actually purchased it. (I am a sucker for buying a product because of the appearance, how vain ha ha) The spray comes in a 300ml can and costs £4.07 at Boots. This is a pretty reasonable price for hairspray and also you have to remember it is a very heavy product so you wont need to use a lot of it either so it will more than likely last you longer than your ordinary can of hairspray.
Is it any good?
This product makes my hair feel rock solid, something I wasn't really wanting because like I said I have fairly long hair so I don't really want my roots to look rock solid and the rest of my hair to look natural, it doesn't look too great. However, my partners hair looks great with this product, I would definitely say if you have short hair whether your male or female and want to style your hair in a quiff, spikey or whatever I would be surprised if this product didn't work for you. My partner is extremely picky with hair products and usually spends a fortune (how feminine of him) so for him to like this product it is saying something!
The product lasts all day. He will do his hair usually 4:30am in the morning and when he comes home right till bedtime it looks exactly the same. Impressive!
To remove this product all I can really recommend is washing your hair, it's a heavy product as stated before so if you do use a lot that is the best way to do it. Most hair sprays with a good brushing technique can get the product out but with this because it is a lot thicker I would say either use water and rub it out with a towel or wash it completely out.
Overall, this product is not suited for me but I still would hundred percent give it 5/5 because I know how great it works for someone who has shorter hair.
ATTENTION ALL ACTORS! This is the stuff to use if you have to have a ridiculous gravity defying hairstyle that stays in place for the duration of a show!
~Why I chose it~
So, as something of an explanation as to what led me to try this product, here goes:
I am part of a theatre company that specialises in murder mystery evenings. These last for about 3-4 hours and there is little time to reapply makeup and hair products. The character I was playing had to have vertical Jedward style hair (they like making me look as ridiculous as possible). My hair is in a bob that comes to my jawline so it is fairly long to spike up meaning that I needed some serious hairspray to keep it in place.
~Design and use~
I saw this on the shelf and having used the Got2b Glued Gel before knew that these products promised long lasting hold. The bright yellow can and klaxon-style nozzle made it stand out from all other products on the shelves. The can holds 300 ml and costs about £4 making it pretty good value for money in my estimation.
The weird looking nozzle turned out not to just be a design feature to make it stand out in the crowd, it actually serves a purpose. The blast of the hairspray is concentrated in a smaller area meaning you can be more precise with your styling. It also means that you are less likely to suffocate everyone else in the room with the fumes from the hairspray!
Although I must say that the smell of the hairspray wasn't overpowering as it can be with many of these products particularly if you use them in large volumes.
After a thorough application at close range, my hair was solid. I mean, really solid. It did not move when I moved my head and was sticking straight up as though pulled upwards by an invisible string. It really was very impressive.
I did notice a few white flakes coming off my hair but fortunately I had to have my hair sprayed white over the top of the hairspray.
The best thing about this product is that it really lasts. My hair stayed in place from around 6.30pm to when I washed it when I arrived home around midnight.
It even withstood being squashed by a full body suit that covered my whole head quite tightly (again, probably best not to ask why I had to wear this).
Don't brush/comb your hair if you've used a lot of this product! It really won't budge it and is likely to break your hair rather than remove it.
I had to wash my hair to get rid of it. I had to use 2 applications of shampoo and conditioner to get my hair back to normal and couldn't notice any lasting damage from having used the product.
I can highly recommend this product for use on extreme styles. It really does hold in place all night and the amount that you need to use per application makes this good value for money. It's perfect for anyone doing shows or those who have mohawks or similar styles that require strong hold.
I absolutely LOVE Schwarzkopf Got2b Glued Hairspray! It is by far the best hairspray for keeping your hair in exactly the same style all day & night... It comes very highly recommended from me, It is a little on the expensive side but definitely worth the £'s :)I have experienced no disadvantages of this product apart from the price but other than that it is great!!
After reading a good review on this product i decided i must get it to see!
Its pretty easy to pick out among the other hairsprays as it is a bright yellow bottle with a strange round nozzle where the spray is. The price is a bit more than most hairsprays but I decided I'm happy to pay a bit extra if it does the job instead of a 99p tin that holds my hair in place for an hour. So upon testing I curled my hair (which happens to despise curls and goes back to straight within an hour without product) each curl i individually sprayed the hairspray on as I need a lot of hold to it. The spray is pretty powerful so don't make the mistake of doing it closely. The hair goes very stiff and first and literally doesn't budge but after a minute or two it goes back to feeling like normal hair with the slight wiry feel expected with hairspray. I found that upon spraying the hairspray too close there were 2 white flakes in my hair. Not dandruff but from the product so watch for looking like you've suddenly developed bad dandruff. Honestly you need to know how unruly your hair is to determine how much spray you need to use. I need quite a lot with curling or waving my hair, but just messing it up doesn't need quite as much. The bottle is pretty big as well so you get a decent amount.
I love the messed up look with hair and as such i have tried so many types of styling products to fix my hair after i have styled it. I have generally discovered hairsprays are one of the greatest fixing products so i have tried pretty much everyone on the market, so i have decided to share the results to help save other money rather than buying them all like me.
This hairspray comes in a large, bright yellow tin bottle with bold black writing, making the product very eye catching. Its larger than most typical hairsprays, 300ml, and does last a long time. I use it almost daily ad it last me around a month, so a decent return on the price you pay. Unlike most hairsprays it has a unique blaster spray, that give a stronger, more even blast across a larger area.
The product is designed to 'hold your hair until the next shampoo' and is designed to style your hair into spikes or the messed up look, exactly what i want to do! The product it very sticky and dry's fairly quickly (not as quick as other, but dry's in a good time scale). The product is not aimed to give you a natural, hairspray free look, but lock your hair in your chosen style.
I was really pleased with the results, it did not give my hair the most natural look but made the style last hours. It was better than most hairsprays i have tried. The hairspray is also really easy to use. I haven't tried spiking my hair, its too long and not my style but from what i have seen it would do a great job. Unlike and waxes it will not brush out easily, you would have to wash it out as its very strong, but it depends on how much you want your style to be fixed. Only use small amounts as it turns your hair rock hard.
This product is sold in Boots at £4, a similar price to the more expensive hairsprays, but one that i would consider worth paying as it really does fix your hair all day.
A worthwhile buy if you want your style to hold, but use in small amounts as it really does turn your hair rock hard.
I have used many different makes and styles of hairsprays in the past and I have to say that overall, this is the best one I have tried.
The big, bright yellow bottle with the bold black writing was what drew me in, and to be honest, it can't really be missed when put next to the boring white, black and dull green bottles offered by other brands, and at around £4 per bottle, I decided to give it a go.
I have found that depending on how much you use it, it can last well over a month as there is so much product in it.
The unique, large spray 'blaster' allows for a more even application but you have to be careful not to apply too much as it really does do what it says on the tin and your hair will turn into rock which is not a good look if like me you're just trying to secure your fringe, believe me!
It does give a great hold though, especially if you're trying to style your hair really elaborately, and unlike other sprays I have used, I find that this one doesn't blow out in the wind and it lasts all day, which is a real bonus. I have even known it to keep my hair exactly in place even after sleeping on it!
Schwartzkopf's got2b glued blasting freeze spray is definitely a product that stands out on the shelves. Bright yellow it is difficult to miss. It looks like a big can of silly string with the unusual spray cap. It claims to give you a screaming hold and literally freeze your hair in place.
I'm sure it really could, if you dared to use so much of the stuff. This product beats any hair spray I've used in the past at protecting my hair from vigorous winds and
actually seems to stand a chance against the unforgiving climate. The purpose of the product is to give extreme hold for those crazy styles that just won't stay put with regular sprays. Of course it can be used like a regular hair spray aswell if applied in moderation.
It is 300ml and has a lot in it to last you a good few months which is fair enough for the almost £4 price tag. The spraying cap is highly accurate and shoots powerful burst of the stuff, not a product that you need to hold down the button all the time. Just little sprays here and there and all is well. The accuracy allows you to avoid spraying areas accidentally.
The smell isn't as strong as other hair sprays and seems pretty light. Got2b glued blasting freeze spray does what it says, it holds your hair in place. Depending on how
much you use, you could have barely noticeable strong hold with a bit of flex or frozen solid hair. The distance at which you spray is very important if you don't want a head of unmoveable hair. Spraying far away you can get a light spray with your hair still being soft.
A product can't be perfect, neither is the got2b spray. I find that after I've sprayed my hair in place, if I want to touch it up a bit you can start to see a very small amount of
white flaking which is unsightly so of you only plan to use the spray and not any kind of wax then try to be quite when styling after spraying.
Once you are done with your style it should stay there assuming you have used enough. I find that it sometimes makes invidual hair strands rise and curl making your hair look a little frizzy since there isn't as much on that strand as the surrounding hairs,
Wind: Holds out well against wind. Depending on how much you use, your hair could sustain fairly high winds. As for typhoons... uhm... I have no idea! But I doubt you'll
be worrying about your hair in such a situation.
Rain: There isn't much that hair products can do against rain since they are designed to be washed out of your hair. I find it to be slightly more water resistant than your
typical hair spray and holds for longer so some light rain should be fine.
Unfortunately this product can be difficult to wash out of your hair, this depends on how much you use of course. If it is for a spiky style that needs a lot of hold then you
might need to wash your hair twice to get all of it out. You may also find some of the spray actually still on your skin such as your neck.
DON'T comb / brush your hair with the freeze spray still in it. Not only might you lose a few hairs, it will be hard to brush through and the product will begin to flake. I
recommend washing it out of your hair rather than brushing if you are using a lot. This is for the benefit of your hair.
This hairspray is for extreme styles so it is possibly best for just that. I recommend using a less powerful hairspray for if you have long hair and are barely styling it. Otherwise, this product is great at keeping your hair the way it was when you last looked into the mirror.
