“ Brand: Tesco / Sprays / Type: Styling Hair Spray / Subcategory: Styling Sprays „
I wear my hair in a bun most days because it keeps it out of my face when I'm cleaning, cooking and looking after my little boy. My hair is quite wild even when I straighten it and tangles easily too so I always use hair spray to keep my bun in and stop any stray strands of hair from coming loose and looking messy.
I don't like to spend very much on hair care products - especially hair spray, so I tend to use the supermarket own brands like Asda and sainsburys and recently I decided to try the Tesco's own brand natural hold hair spray which I hadn't noticed before and it seemed like good value.
It was only £1.19 for a big 300ml aerosol can of it which I know isn't the cheapest around but it is just the right price in my opinion, not dirt cheap (which is a good thing because most dirt cheap products are useless) but not at all expensive and you get a lot for your money. I have used it everyday for over 2 weeks and there is still a good amount left from what I can tell - the aerosol can still feels quite full.
The hair spray comes in quite a nicely designed aerosol can which is a unisex design but a little bit more on the girly side because it has a nice colour scheme which is light blue and silver. It is a handy size as it is small enough to fit in my handbag without taking up much room at all, but it is not too small. To get the hair spray out of the aerosol can you just need to press on the top of it and it squirts it out. Unfortunately a lot comes out even when I press lightly rather than in a fine mist, so I have to make sure not too much is applied.
I always make sure I spray it at arms length away from my hair else it leaves my hair feeling wet and sticky but as long as I keep it moving while spraying and make sure it isn't too close to my head its fine and once I've sprayed it on my hair doesn't feel at all sticky, though I can feel a slight layer of it on my hair which isn't visible. I also make sure I don't spray too much on and if I do put even the tiniest amount too much on I need to run my fingers through my hair so it doesn't look like I have a greasy layer on my hair! If I apply way too much I need to wash my hair because it makes my hair go greasy and wet.
But, as long as I don't apply too much of it is fine and there is no greasiness, stickiness or anything at all though it does make my hair look quite shiny gut this is a good thing in my opinion and it doesn't look so shiny that it looks stupid or greasy. It makes my hair feel heavier but it doesn't make my hair go really hard, and it keeps it in place and it stops any fizziness or loose strands, obviously it doesn't last all day some will re apply it whenever I need to but without reapplying it I would say on average it lasts for about 4 hours.
The smell isn't nice but I've never come across a hair spray that does smell nice! All in all I'd recommend this hair spray.
I don't use hairspray all that much but it is one of those usual things to have around the hair when you want to achieve a particular hair style. I tend to just grab whatever there is when I run out of mine, paying no particular attention to the brand.
I picked up this Tesco hairspray the last time I popped into the supermarket as I knew I needed a new one. I went based on price and this one was only 79p for 300ml which seemed pretty reasonable to me. I've had the value one before and found it lacking somewhat in quality so I thought I'd give this one a shot.
The product comes in a classic aerosol style metal dispenser. The can is light blue in colour and has some branding but it is quite small so it isn't instantly recognisable as being from Tesco. Otherwise the design is pretty standard, it just looks like a very normal everyday hairspray and that's all I wanted so I couldn't really ask for any more for the price.
The spray contains vitamin B5 so is meant to be good for your hair and the real selling point of this hair spray is that it achieves a 'natural' look. I hate it when you can see that there is hairspray on my hair so I was optimistic about the look that could be achieved with this spray. Unfortunately, I was too optimistic. this spray is pretty noticeable once applied to hair. In fact, the look is not dissimilar from the value spray I've had before. A lot of the spray is dispersed so you have to hold it quite far from your head. The hairspray also leaves my hair looks very stiff and a little greasy because of the coating it gives to your hair.
Though it offers good hold I am disappointed that it isn't much better than the value spray. I think if you pay more for something it should be markedly different and as far as I'm concerned they could very well be the same thing in a different can.
Overall, I'm not very impressed and will probably opt for a more expensive brand next time.
When I was a teenager my mum used to moan at me for how much hairspray that I used as I would tie my hair back and insist on covering it with hairspray to make sure not a single hair had a chance of moving. Now I do still use hairspray but not nearly as much as I used to, now I tend to just a spray a small amount to smooth down stray hairs and to give my hair a little bit of extra hold. I am always on a budget and so tend to try and find hairspray that is on offer and if not try an own brand one, the last hairspray that I purchased was the Tesco Natural Hold one which I spotted for the bargain price of just 59p for a 300ml can and thought it would be worth a try.
The Tesco Natural Hold hairspray comes packaged in a tall thin aerosol can which has a push down button on the top to allow you to dispense the hairspray. The design of the packaging is very simple with it being blue in colour and displaying the Tesco logo and name on the front as well as basic information on how the hairspray work. On the back of the can you can find more detailed information about the hairspray including directions for use, ingredients listings and any cautions you need to follow with using the product.
This hairspray states that it is enriched with Pro-Vitamin B5 to help to strengthen and nourish your hair and UV absorber to help protect your hair from the damaging rays from the sun. It is designed to give your hair a long lasting natural hold. I thought this all sounded rather impressive for a hairspray which cost so little so was eager to give it a try.
The first time that you use the hairspray you need to make sure you press down quite firmly on the button to break the seal so that you can spray the hairspray easily afterwards. The hairspray comes out in a nice fine mist and although it is not fragranced it is rather chemically smelling but I have noticed that this soon wears off. The hairspray feels quite light on my hair and not in any way sticky, it seems to dry on application so is quick and easy to use. I normally spay a little over my parting then comb it through to smooth down those little annoying hairs which stick out then I spray a my hair lightly all over to give it a little hold so I do not get the windswept look when I go out. So far I have found this hairspray to be very good it works well to hold my style in place without feeling or leaving my hair looking sticky or clumpy. It also brushes out fairly well, although I am yet to find a hairspray which brushes out completely I find that you have to wash your hair to get rid of the total feel of the hairspray. It has also not left my hair feeling dry or brittle but instead gives it a nice shine and helps it to look smoother.
Overall I have been very impressed with this hairspray and would certainly purchase it again, it works well and for the bargain price I have no complaints at all and would repurchase in the future.
I usually use Elnett hairspray but the last time I was in tesco doing the grocery shop I picked up a can of their own brand hairspray on impulse to try it and see what it was like as it was a lot cheaper and bigger than my usual Elnett one. The one I chose was just the tesco brand which I think is meant to be a step up from the value one. Who knows but it isn't value branded and instead is a light blue colour and unless you actually looked closely to see the tesco name on it you would be forgiven for thinking it was just a normal hairspray from a well-known hair care company.
The size of the can is 300ml and is only 79 pence which made it a significant saving for me. It contains vitamin B5 and is supposed to care for your hair and leave it looking shiny and easy to manage.
I got the natural version of the hairspray as I like my hair to be hurricane proof but not actually to look like I have any product on it.
Even though the hairspray is supposed to be natural hold I found it to be quite noticeable on my hair. I sprayed it for the correct distance of 12 inches away but it seemed to cling to my hair and leave it slightly hard feeling in places as though I had gel on it. I also found that it wasn't quite as easy to brush out as they state and it actually left me with little white bits in my hair.
I have to say that I was disappointed in it and didn't feel that it gave the natural hold that it was supposed to. It did leave my hair exactly in place but the look it left was not one that I would want to be seen with. I do think it would be good for men with short spikey hair who don't mind it looking like they are wearing product but for longer hair I would definitely recommend that you spend a little extra and invest in something that will look a bit more natural.
Nowadays it is rare to find a beauty product for less that a pound and with there being a vast range of products doing an array of things, it is difficult to know which one to buy which is going to do the trick.
I find Tesco Natural Hold Hairspray a great product and you would think for the price it would be a bit rubbish, but it actually does hold your hair in place naturally! So it literally does what it says on the tin, which makes a change to some products.
If you are looking for a fancy product, with a many functions this product may not be for you, but if you want a simple hairspray to hold your hair in place then this is great. However, I do find that sometimes I have to re apply the hairspray through out the day, but can't complain too much considering the price!
Having not found the perfect hairspray yet i am still going through trying as many as possible until i find the perfect one to fix my messed up style all day. Being a student finding a cheap hairspray that is great would be perfect, so i decided to try some of the simple and basics ranges.
The hair spray comes in an shiny, aqua blue tin canister containing 300ml, similar to most standard hairsprays. It has the usual standard, plastic lid that give a medium strength even spray. The hairspray also comes in three different varieties; natural hold, firm hols and maximum hold. Seeing as i want my messed up style to hold all day so i tend to use the maximum strength.
The hair spray produces a slightly sticky mist, similar to other extra strength sprays i have tried. It dries relatively quickly, though i would rather it dried a tad quicker s i don't have to hold my hair until it dried. My hair also looks fairly natural for extra strength, giving my hair a nice appearance. The hairspray is not a great smell, i find it bit more chemical filled (which is probably why it is cheaper) and therefore do not use in closed spaces or if you have bad asthma.
The hairspray held for a good 3 hours, slightly better than a few of the more expensive ones i have tried. The hair spray lasts about a month, giving you a very good return as you don't need to use too much to get your style to fix.
Regardless of which variety you go for the hairspray costs 69p, one of the cheapest i have found on the market. This hairspray is great value, fraction of the price of normal hairsprays, but gives the same results (slightly better than a few i have tried).
The hairspray is very good value for money, giving you similar results to hair sprays costing £2-£2.50, but is a fraction of the price. I would definitely consider buying this hairspray again, and recommend it.
I am not one of these lucky people who have totally straight and smooth hair, mine is wavy and straightened on a daily basis and therefore needs a little help to keep smooth throughout the day. I have tried several brands of hair sprays over the years, some quite expensive ones but I think the best one I have tried so far has to be Tesco Hairspray Natural Hold.
The hairspray comes in the typical metal spray can which is different shades of blue with a blue spray top. To start using the spray you simply press down the top of the lid to break the seal. There is no actual label on this product all the information is printed straight onto the container. On the front of the spray can are the words Tesco Hairspray in white lettering and the words natural hold in blue letters at the bottom. Information such as ingredients, directions for use and additional information about solvent abuse and safety instructions are all written on the back of the spray can.
Tesco Hairspray contains UV absorbers to protect your hair from UV rays and also Pro-Vitamin B5 to help strengthen and nourish your hair. This information is written on both the front and back of the can. This hairspray is for a natural look and brushes our of you hair easily, personally I have found this to be true. I hardly ever tie my hair up despite it being long, however I do lightly spray my hair after straightening in every morning and then brush it through, the hairspray comes out in a very fine mist which does not soak your hair and allows you to apply just the right amount. I find it leaves my hair very smooth, without all those little wispy bits you can get. In the past I have tried doing this with other hairspray's but they tend to leave my hair either very hard on top, sticky or with white flaky bits as the hairspray wears out. You get none of this with Tesco Natural Hairspray. Once it has been brushed through and dried, which literally takes seconds, you would not know you had hairspray on, there are no sticky or hard crispy bits in your hairs and it does not leave white flakes as the day goes on. You are left with totally natural smooth looking hair. This hairspray would also be suitable to spray over your hair after tying it up or styling it to smooth it out but at the same time leaving it very natural looking without hard, crispy bits of hair which can be very noticeable at times, it has a strong enough hold to keep your hair in place whilst leaving it natural looking at the same time.
Tesco Natural Hairspray does have a slight smell to it, however it is very mild and not unpleasant or overpowering, I have found that some hairspray's have either a very strong alcohol smell to it or a very strong floral smell to try and cover up the alcohol smell. After you have sprayed Tesco hairspray onto your hair the slight smell that is there soon wears off, and does not leave you with a strong chemical smell.
Tesco Hairspray is a bargain at only 70p for a 300ml can, this is a lot cheaper than some brands which can cost well over £1 for a smaller spray can. I find this product is very long lasting, one can lasts me several weeks so it is therefore very economical.
Octylacylamide/ Acylates/ Butylaminoethyl
Hydroxyisohexyl 3-Cyclohexene Caboxaldehyde
Despite the main ingredient being alcohol and the long list of complicated looking ingredients above I find this product is quite gently on your scalp. As I have mentioned in other reviews I do have quite sensitive skin, however Tesco Hairspray has not effect on me at all and does not irritate my skin or make it itchy, so it does seem that this product is quite suitable for those that are slightly more sensitive to certain ingredients, however the ingredients are very clearly written on the back of the spray can and very easy to read.
Does what it says on the packaging
Does not leave hairs, sticky, crispy, hard or with white bits - totally natural look
Suitable for simply smoothing out hair or to hold styled hair with a natural look
Hairspray comes out in a fine mist - does not soak the hair
I would recommend this hairspray to anyone, it is certainly one of the best I have tried and is at half the price of some other brands!!!!!!
Tesco Natural Hold Hairspray
Description: Manufacturer: Tesco / Hair Care Type: Styling Products / Type: Styling Sprays.
I have quite long, highlighted blonde hair. Unfortunately I am not one of those lucky creatures who naturally have gorgeous smooth hair which is manageable and shiny. Instead, I have slightly wavy hair which is prone to curling at the very thought of rain! It isn't perfect curls either, instead just looks frizzy so I have to use products designed for my hair type and straighten it every day to try and keep it looking sleek and straight.
In addition to this, I like to use a little hairspray when I have finished styling my hair to help to keep it looking the way I want it. I have tried several brands of hairspray and must admit that I am not a snob and like the cheaper brands which I find just as effective a the more expensive ones.
A 300ml cannister of this hairspray will cost just £0.70 which is loads cheaper than some of the brand names. As the picture shows, it comes in a bright blue aerosol can.
The hairspray has quite a light fragrance which is good as I hate heavy smelling hairsprays. The smell doesn't linger in your hair either, so you can apply it without smelling of it for the rest of the day.
The hairspray holds well and looks natural, achieving hair which looks like it is staying in place with no help from products. It doesn't leave hair sticky and brushes out easily too with no residue.
Overall, this hairspray is a handy way to save money and works well, with no drawbacks, it will certainly continue to feature on my shopping list and is well worth buying!
Now that the winter is fast approaching and it is forever wet, usually deciding to rain just as I am getting my coat on to go on the school run I have taken to wearing my hair up out of the way. For me to do this I need quite a good hairspray to keep all the shorter bit back as well. I found this one when shopping in Tesco and as it was so much cheaper I bought it. I have now been using this for over 3 years as it has been so good.
The hairspray comes in a blue/green metal can at it has a push down top which releases the spray from the side of the lid. On the front of the can there is the product name and a small wave in different shades of blue. The back of the can has all of the relevant product details and directions for use.
I have never really read the instruction for using this hairspray as I think it is quite self explanatory but the can recommends that this is sprayed approximately 12 inches away from the hair and then lightly and evenly sprayed. For me I usually just spray all over the hair and then add a little extra to the problem areas. I did notice that the hair felt slightly wet at first but then it soon dried and the hair felt slightly hard. After leaving this on my hair for a few minutes I noticed that the hair did start to feel softer and not as if it was stuck down onto my head.
My hair did stay in place despite being down to bits outside and I was pleased about this. This lasted on my hair for the complete day and when I can to take my hair down before having a bath I noticed that it was still in the same place despite no longer having a hair bobble in! I was easily able to brush the remainder of the spray out of my hair and was not left with any flaky bits which I have had from other brand name sprays. When I had finished brushing I noticed how clean and free my hair looked. You would not have thought that it was previously stuck back and sprayed down. I was not left feeling my hair was dirty or needed a wash.
The hairspray is to be kept away from naked flames and kept in a cool dry place. It comes in a 300mlcan which lasts me for a good month and is only available to buy at Tesco stores as this is one of their own brand products.
The ingredients for those wishing to know are:-
Alcohol Denat,Butane,Isobutane,propane,Octylacrylamide/Acrylates/Butylaminoethyl Methacrylate Copolymer,Aqua, AminomethylPropanol, Parfum, Phenyl Trimethicone, Benzophenone-3,Panthenol, PPG-12 Dimethicone,Hexyl Cinnamal, Hydroxyisohexyl 3-Cyclohexene, Carboxaldehyde, Limonene, Citral
When using this spray you will notice that there is a fragrance to it but for me I find it very hard to describe. I always think of hairdressers when I spray this, those who use hairspray will know the smell which I mean. It is quite pleasant and does not last for long.
I paid just 68p for my 300ml can which I felt was a great bargain as named brands are well over £1 more than this. This is a great brand which works and leaves my hair feeling fresh and clean after brushing it out. I also gives a good natural finish to hair styles and does hold them very well.
