      Not for me but maybe for some

      I have used the Tesco family hair spray and it was fine so I decided to try out the Everyday value one because I was curious as it was just so cheap compared to the usual hairsprays that I buy. After using it I can understand why it is so cheap and it isn''t one that I would bother purchasing again though I can imagine that it would actually work for some people. The hairspray costs just 37p for a 300ml can so it is really good value for money. The packaging is horrible but I wouldn''t be bothered about that if I had liked it. This is just a hairspray for hold and there is no fancy formulas for shine or condition for example. This is just designed to give hold and nothing else and for that it does an ok job. As soon as you spray this you are left immediately feeling as though you need to stand by an open window as it is very strong and chemical smelling. I noticed that instead of being a fine mist which dries almost instantly this came out and sort of soaked my hair and there was a noticeable wetness to my hair after spraying which took a long time to dry. The first time I used this I just sprayed it on as I would with any hairspray and I noticed that once it had dry my hair was so stiff and hard which was not a look that I wanted. I made sure every other time that I used it that I only sprayed from a distance and tried to just mist it on but still it set my hair harder than I would have liked. I didn''t like the fact that it set my hair so hard but I will give the hairspray its due that it kept my hair in place for a long time even when it was windy outside. Unfortunately this stiffness to my hair wasn''t attractive so I stopped using it and just went back to something else but for people who want really strong control then this would be a good option as usually hair sprays aren''t as strong as this. For me this wasn''t suitable but I am sure that there are people who would appreciate the fact that it is so strong.

      Great for keeping short hair from moving but don't think it would be suitable for long

      I have short spiky hair which I style with wax. Mousse and gel are no good for my hair as it is wavy and can be a little wild so it needs something strong on it to prevent it from moving about. If I am going out and it is windy I will also usually spray something on it either a gel spray or else some hair spray.

      Now because I want something that is going to make my hair like rock I find that the cheaper the hair spray the more suitable it is for my particular needs and the Tesco Value hairspray is cheap as chips and does exactly what I want of it.

      The hair spray costs only around about 40p for a largish tin and although it was rebranded to Everyday Value hair spray it still seems to be exactly the same otherwise.

      You get a 300ml tin of hair spray for the 40p so it is really good value for money and I find that a tin will last me for months.
      I use it to keep my hair in place after I have styled it so I just spray it all over my hair for a few seconds. It dries pretty quickly and once it has dried it leaves my hair feeling a little bit hard and it definitely stops it from moving. A light spray is enough for most days but if it is really windy then I just spray a little bit more on and it makes it almost impossible to move.

      The thing that I really like about this hair spray is that although it makes my hair rock solid and stops it from moving even slightly it is relaly easy to get out of my hair. I can either brush it out though this does tend to leave white marks that can look like dandruff or else wash my hair. One shampoo is enough to remove all traces of the hair spray.

      I personally wouldn't say this would be a great hair spray for women with longer hair as I doubt that they would want that crisp hard look on their hair but for short hair it is ideal and really does stop hair from moving.

      I haven't been able to buy this the last couple of times that I have went to get it and have had to spend a little bit more to buy the slightly more expensive Tesco own brand and I just thought that my store had none in but the website says it is currently unavailable so I hope it hasn't been discontinued because it is excellent value for money and does the job for me.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Well worth the price

      As I have fairly fine hair I don't really need to use a hairspray which is too firm a hold and I generally find that most hairsprays with medium to light control do a fairly good job at holding my hair in place. I buy a lot of Tesco's on range products so I also buy their Everyday Value range of hairspray. It's much cheaper than the branded hairsprays you can buy, and whilst it's not the best hairspray in the world, it still does a pretty decent job.

      This hairspray comes in a 300ml sized can and it costs only 36p, which is brilliant really, when you think about it. The packaging isn't all that stylish but to be honest, no-one is going to look at my can of hairspray so I don't mind at all what the can looks like.

      I shake it firmly before use and spray it evenly all around my styled hair. It takes a little while for this hairspray to actually dry and that is probably the only negative thing I can say about it. With most hairsprays I've used, they dry almost instantly but this one takes a few minutes so I always find myself holding my head quite steady until I think it's completely dried off.

      Fragrance wise, it's fine. It's not brilliant but then it's not bad either, and sort of what I'd cal middle of the road in terms of fragrance. I do like though that this hairspray doesn't seem to leave a film or build up on my hair, and as I use it every week day this is quite impressive really. I've used more expensive sprays which have really been difficult to wash out and have left a terrible residue all over my hair. This Everyday Value one from Tesco's is fine in this respect.

      It won't add shine, and it doesn't particularly make my hair look bouncy or vibrant , it simply holds my style in place, which is after all, what I pay my 36p for.

      Very much recommended.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      It's holds most of my hair- well to a fashion

      Seeing this in Tesco for 30 odd pence for 300ml I thought to myself 'I'm going to try this'. Normally I buy hairspray from Aldi for around 80p- so not much dearer and I'm pleased with it, but having been in Tesco at the time I obviously couldn't buy it.

      The hairspray is in the usual 'Everyday Value' packaging. White with purple grooming pics depicted on it, it's a huge improvement on their old styling. It says it's 'Everyday Value Hairspray' formulated by hair care experts for hold and control'. The picture above is incorrect, that's Tesco ordinary brand hairspray. The lid is a take off style with the nozzle underneath, it's quite stiff to depress.

      After a good shake and spraying from 10-12 inches as directed, the first thing to note is the strong chemical gas smell. The hairspray itself produces a fine but wet spray, it's almost like water and leaves my hair wet for a good few minutes. Once dry it does set my waves but unevenly, parts of my hair are left like cardboard other parts seem to have been missed, maybe the spray is too directional. The hairspray doesn't allow for movement on the set areas.

      I put it on in the morning and I think it lasted a while, but like I say only in parts- I could apply more where it's missed but it's so wet it takes too long to dry. It does brush out and doesn't leave white bits. It doesn't leave my hair looking shiny but doesn't leave it dull it either.

      I'm undecided whether or not I'd recommend it- the price is indisputable, it does hold most of my waves, but it's a very wet hairspray with poor coverage- for me anyway. The smell is very strong and unpleasant, but fortunately doesn't stay on my hair.

      I think I'll give 3 stars obviously for the price and the fact that it sets the hair it settles on (even if it does set hard) never the less it does set.

      I may buy it again but will probably stick to Aldi spray.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        At least my bank balance is cheerful

        I don't tend to opt for expensive hairspray brands because I use it to infrequently that something cheap usually does the job. I bought this Tesco value hairspray a while ago when shopping on a budget.

        This hairspray retails at 37p for 300ml which is about as cheap as you can get it. The metal tube has the classic red, white and blue synonymous with Tesco value. The hairspray is a standard aerosol style dispenser and the whole package is completely no frills. For 37p I'm not sure I'd have a leg to stand on if I argued but I can't help feel that they could make it look slightly nicer for not much more money.

        The hairspray has quite a strong smell to it which is not really distinctly anything, just sort of a chemical smell - it reminds me a little of furniture polish. The hair spray comes out thick and fast so you have to be careful to hold it away from your hair in order to prevent your hair from turning rock hard within seconds. If you are trying to achieve some very impressive look that requires a lot of hold then this is perfect. If you want to subtly hold curls in place then this isn't the ideal hairspray as it sets the hair hard and leaves it looking a little stiff.

        If you use a lot your hair can end up looking greasy to gelled because it holds it so well. I also worry that it dries my hair out quite a lot as the day after it always feels a little stiff and dehydrated. If you know you are going somewhere with adverse weather then this might actually be the perfect hairspray because it certainly does offer amazing hold but I do worry a little about the impact on my hair and the overall look it achieves.

        Overall, for 37p it is exactly what you would expect: cheap but lacking in quality.

        Disadvantages

        A useless hair spray from the Tesco Everyday Value range

        During the eighties I favoured the very fashionable big hair appearance as well as having a love of anything gothic. As a result, I would backcomb my hair as high as it would possibly reach and coat it far too generously with hairspray until it resembled the texture of cardboard. Fortunately, my hair style is now far more respectable as well as being less conspicuous and my yearning for hard and unmoveable hair has been replaced with a soft and neat appearance.

        I still regularly use hair sprays, but their purpose is now solely for keeping my style neatly in place. My usual product choice is one belonging to the Boots Essentials range and the fact that I've been using it for well over 20 years speaks volumes in relation to both its quality and performance. However, when carrying out a recent Tesco shop and in a bid to save a few pennies, my husband bought me a Tesco Everyday Value Hair Spray and this review discusses my experience.

        Whilst this protect category is correct for the hair spray, I would advise that the image shown above is for the normal Tesco hair spray as opposed to the value brand. I would further advise that Everyday Value is the new and updated brand name and if you are familiar with this range you will be aware that Tesco have considerably modernised the packaging, which is more eye-catching than its previously uninspiring image.

        We are provided with 300 ml of spray, which is contained within a pressured aerosol can and unlike my preferred Boots brand where the dispensing section is neatly incorporated into the lid, the product offers a removable lid, which is easily lifted off and snugly replaced on top of the can. As with similar products of this nature, the can should be well shaken and evenly applied approximately 10 - 12 inches away from the hair where it is released in a fine mist, which covers a good area of hair. Whilst Tesco claim the hair spray is formulated by hair control experts for hold and control, the product fails miserably on many aspects.

        Although the aroma isn't as bad as I had anticipated, particularly for a cheap hair spray, I cannot admit to finding it favourable due to the presence of the rather pongy chemicals. Thankfully, the smell lingers for only a short while after spraying when it completely disperses. As my hair is of a thick texture, it is necessary for me to use a quality spray to keep it neatly in place, but disappointingly, this product offered absolutely no control despite me applying a few times.

        On a positive note, it left no tiny wet globules on the surface of my hair, which has been the case with cheaper brands that I've used in the past. The product was fast drying and did not offer any traces of stickiness, but it did not serve the purpose for what it was intended. It was easily brushed away without any flakiness, but I was able to witness a slight film on my hair, which caused it to feel a little weighty. I tried the spray on a few separate occasions, but unfortunately, I could not achieve the desired results and as a consequence, I cannot make a recommendation, so I feel a one star rating is appropriate.

        In all honesty, I really did not expect good results, particularly when my husband informed me that he paid only 37p. As a result, my almost full can was placed straight into the bin!

        I hope you found my review useful and thanks for reading.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A pretty darn good hairspray from Tesco!

          Hairspray is something that I normally use on a daily basis, sometimes twice a day depending on how I am styling my hair. I like to try out different styles and colours but when it comes to work I just want to have my hair off my face and quite simple. I tend to use hairspray to keep my hair in check and I've tried quite a few over the years!

          This Tesco hairspray was just under 40p, dirt cheap, and that was my reason for buying this. From time to time I like to try something new to see if I can save myself some money. This price is for a 300ml can and seemed incredibly cheap and reasonable for me.

          This is a simple hairspray which is now in the new re-branded Tesco Everyday Value packaging. It is in a simple can with a press down dispenser and a large white plastic lid. There is nothing special about the packaging but its simple and that's reflected in the price. There is only one type of hairspray and you do not get different strengths for different hair styles etc.

          There is no real offensive smell to this hairspray and it is definitely one that I can cope with if I'm using a large amount. I give this a good hard shake before I spray it and then I spray it liberally on to my styled hair. My hair does feel a little sticky initially and I always have to wash my hands after I use this, but then I do with all different hair sprays that I use so that's not really an issue for me.

          Once I have sprayed this on I find that it dries within a few minutes which is great. The style stays well in place and my hair doesn't look too greasy or feel sticky. When I get in from a day at work or an evening out I am able to brush this out easily.

          In all I will rate this 4/5. It's staying power is now the longest, probably lasting about 4 or 5 hours before my hair starts to fall out, however, at this price I can reapply several times a day if I want to. I love the price of this, there isn't a really horrible smell with this that I have experienced with some other cheap hair sprays and in all I've been pretty pleased with this. I would use it again but next time I'll likely be swayed by something that claims to give my hair shine or last for 48 hours or some other ridiculous claim. Also, its worth saying that you need to be careful if you spray this in your bathroom as I've found that it makes my lino floors very slippery.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            A good value product!

            A few months ago I was looking for a hairspray for my holiday, something that would hold my natural curls at a cheap price. Because I was taking it on holiday it wasn't really essential that it was the best quality product, just as long as it did its job. So, I was doing a bit of shopping in Tesco and I came across this product. For 59 pence I thought I really couldn't go wrong.

            For your 59 pence you get 300ml of hairspray in a tall blue can. The lid is blue and the can has yellow and white writing on it. This product can more often than not be found on '3 for 2' offer. Being a Tesco product, this means it can only be purchased at Tesco stores or online from the Tesco website.

            This hairspray is also available in 'natural' and 'maximum'. But this particular product is that I am reviewing is the 'Tesco Family Hairspray Firm'.

            Directions: Shake can before use. Hold can upright and spray lightly and evenly about 12 inches from your hair. It can also be used on damp hair whilst styling.

            The instructions say: Do not store in damp or humid conditions (recommended for future artwork amends)

            I have found that this hairspray will work on natural or styled hair.

            Only a small squirt is required to get a firm hold. You may need more if it is a
            particularly windy day ect. The hairspray will keep your hair in place all day and night long. The bottle will last you a long time, even with frequent use.

            It provides a natural look; it doesn't leave your hair sticky or stiff. You can barely tell it's there. The hairspray will wash and brush out easily.

            This Tesco Hairspray is as good as any other I have used. I would even say it compares equally to big brands like Silvikrin and L'oreal.

            The only issue I have with this hairspray is that it doesn't really have a pleasant smell. It is overly chemical and it gets caught in your throat. I wouldn't suggest you use this in an enclosed room, especially if you have breathing issues. Even though this product is intended for use throughout the whole family, I wouldn't really say that the smell wouldn't be too good for young children's chests.

            Over all I am impressed with this product though. I will be purchasing it again, even if it doesn't really smell too great. It does a good job for a good price, and is definitely a good value product. 4 stars from me!

            You can buy this from Tesco stores, or online from www.tesco.co.uk

            Thank you for reading this review, I hope it was of some use to you!

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              A cheap but not very good hairspray

              I usually use L'oreal Elnett hairspray almost religiously but I have tried other brands in the past due to the fact that Elnett is on the expensive side.
              I first tried Tesco value hairspray when I was trying to get my monthly beauty spend under control, my reasoning for it was that really how much difference could there be between hairsprays? Well it turns out that there can be quite a lot actually.

              Tesco value hairspray is an amazing price at only 37p for a 300ml tin. It certainly doesn't come prettily packaged as it is just plain white with the blue and red Tesco value branding on it. The hairspray is an aerosol and is quite a powerful one so you need to make sure that you spray it a good distance from your hair otherwise you will end up with rock solid strands.

              The scent from the hairspray is fairly strong and it really reminds me of the eighties for some reason which is where I think this hairspray belongs. There is nothing natural about the hold this gives and it would be perfect for those who are wanting big teased hair but for those of us who are wanting subtle natural hold this isn't the hairspray to use.

              I find that it makes my hair hard and leaves it looking greasy looking if I add too much. If I use it from arm's length distance and just give my hair a light spray then it is ok but it still leaves my hair feeling stiff. If you use this then you certainly needn't worry about getting wind swept hair as your hair will not move. There could be a hurricane and your hair will stay in exactly the same place.

              Even though it is cheap I wouldn't buy this hairspray again although in a crunch I would use it at a friend's house if offered. I just think it leaves my hair too unyieldy and unnatural looking. It is also a pain to brush out and leaves my hair looking as though I have dandruff then I don't.

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              Good hold for a budget price

              I am not a particularly vain person and don't spend alot of time or money on make-up or styling products (except for my Clarins skin products). However, I do wash, blow dry and style my hair everyday. I have very fine hair which has been short for a long time. My hair is also naturally almost black, so I can look a bit 'witchy' if it's long - not a good look unless you have gothic tendancies! I have a very layered hairstyle which has recently been cut very short in an 'urchin' type cut.

              I have used 'Shockwaves' styling products for years and have been very happy with their performance. However, given the fact that our weekly grocery bill appeared to go up by about £20 seemingly overnight, coupled with the birth of our second daughter and me being on maternity leave/pay, I went hunting for a cheaper alternative to my £2-£2.50 can of Shockwaves hairspray.

              The Tesco Value Hairspray I currently have is a different version of the can shown in the picture - it is a white can with the usual Tesco value red & blue logo and a blue banner on the can with white writing stating "No fancy formula, still great hold and control" and an out of focus 'action shot' of a woman swishing her hair. Whooppeee! The can is 300ml (fairly standard size for hairspray) and currently costs 79p from Tesco.

              The spray is dispensed via a standard press nozzle and it comes out as a fine mist which is good as it allows even application. I have never been a fan of 'pump' action sprays as I always seemed to end up with an aching right hand, big 'blobs' of spray unevenly applied in my hair and it was always just a bit awkward to pump the spray and hold the bottle at the same time. Therefore, the trusty press nozzle is fine by me. The spray smells well . . . . like hairspray funnily enough! It does have a chemical smell, but it isn't overpowering and it smells like most other sprays I have used.

              As I said before, I do have fine, short hair and this spray suits my style fine. It doesn't have 'rock hard' hold like my Shockwaves spray used to and to get a decent hold on a big 'up-do' I would imagine you would have to use rather alot of this spray. That said, it does do the job for the majority of the day and can be easily brushed and/or washed out without any difficulties or leaving any significant residue build up on my hair.

              In summary, it doesn't give you the amount of hold other more expensive branded sprays do, but unless you want 'helmet head' firmness to your hair, this spray will do the job for you. 3 stars from me - it does a reasonable job.

                Disadvantages

                Worth a buy for its price!

                I always like to give the Tesco value range a try as I find the prices are so low I'm not really risking much when giving their products a try for myself.
                However having said this, I was a little reluctant to try this hairspray as I know it's really easy to pick up a crap value spray which doesn't do much in terms of holding your hair. Hairspray is important on days like dance shows for us. If we don't have a good enough hair spray then my sister ends up on stage with bed hair!
                I have also found it's hard for me personally to find a spray which is strong enough to hold my style, yet doesn't leave my hair hard and rough by the end of the night.

                Price:
                ***************
                I grabbed a bottle of this Tesco value hairspray for around 37p, which when you are on a budget, is a fantastic buy! Although I didn't have much faith in this bottle and so decided to also go for a spray with a more popular brand as a backup.
                This hairspray comes in a 300ml and as far as I know, there aren't any smaller varieties. But really when comparing the price to the size of the bottle, it would be hard for Tesco to create a smaller tube without having to just about give it away for free.
                300ml is around the same as the other sized hair sprays which is good considering the price comparisons.

                Use:
                ***************
                This hairspray is easy to use and I find it comes out in a sort of 'mist' rather than a projected spray. This I find is fantastic as it helps to cover every strand of hair needed rather than drench each section.
                However as it is such a fine mist, I do find I sometimes need to add a few layers.
                The strength of the spray isn't the best and on days when I decide to curl my whole hair, I never leave without applying 2 or 3 layers.
                Even after applying a few layers, the hairspray doesn't last all day. This could be a problem for people who are out for the day and wanting an all day look. I would recommend taking the spray with you to reapply throughout the day if that is the case.
                However for me, the hairspray is perfect. Its faults are actually it's advantages for me personally as I love the idea of being able to restyle and smooth out my hair at the end of the day without the sticky hard or flaky feeling of your hair after using other stronger hair sprays.
                This Tesco hairspray holds hair lightly and probably wouldn't be suitable if you have very curly hair and you want to curl it, as it isn't very strong.
                The same applies for if you have naturally really straight hair, the curls would probably fall out by the end of the day.
                However I have noticed a difference when going out without any hairspray at all, comparing to using a quick apply of this spray. My curls hold for longer and for me it lasts just long enough.
                I tend to curl just the ends of my hair or just the front, so I focus the spray in just one area.

                I have had my 300ml bottle for about 3 months now and still have about 20% left. However I didn't use it much for the first 2 months as I don't like to apply heat to my hair much.
                But for the price and considering how many layers I need each time I use it, I think my one bottle has held out for a pretty decent length of time.
                The spray holds quite a potent smell to it; it reminds me slightly of the smell of nail varnish remover and really does get down your throat when using a lot of the spray.
                Although this doesn't put me off as I don't expect hairspray to smell of roses!
                The bottle is pretty plain, the hairspray I picked up recently comes in a boring white tube with the Tesco value logo and quite a low quality rubbish photo of a lady wafting her hair... to be fair it just looks like a blur.
                The lid doesn't stay on and I lost mine within the first week, but again this doesn't affect the quality of the product.
                Overall, I will buy this again. For 37p it's perfect for me. It lasts me a while and holds my hair for just the right length of time.
                For styles requiring a stronger hold, more layers would be needed. I would actually recommend using a stronger hair spray if you are styling your hair for a special occasion such as a wedding, to ensure your hair holds all day!

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                See Review

                I have found another great bargain from the Tesco Value range. This time it is their hairspray.


                I have been spending a fortune on hairspray over the last year seeing as how my youngest daughter has reached the age of "doing her hair" every morning for hours then needing to spray till the cows come home to keep it in place all day. I use hairspray my self and often find on going to give my short hairstyle a quick squirt that there is nothing left in the bottom of the tin.


                I have been looking round shops like Wilkinson's and Saver's seeing what the best one I can find for a cheap price but the cheap own make ones don't seem to work and the ones with names that I recognise are either a small can or still not that cheap.


                So the other day whilst in Tesco picking up some bits to top up our shopping I thought I would have a look at their hairsprays and spotted the white can at the bottom of the shelf with the princely sum of 37p!!


                I am already a big fan of their Value Range hair mousse which I use all the time now but had not tried the hair spray before but thought I would give it a go as we had run out completely that morning.


                The can is not a bad size, it holds 300ml of hairspray. It is instantly recognisable with its white can and the blue and red Tesco logo on the top with the Value sign underneath in white on a red background. The wording for hairspray is white on a blue background and then underneath it has a photo of some blonde hair being swished around. The picture that is at the top of the review seems to be Tesco's normal range of hairspray and not the Value range as the Title says. As I said earlier, I found it right on the bottom shelf so have a look down there if you want to give it a try.


                My hairstyle is quite short but I like to have it spikey on the top so I need a hairspray that will keep the style in all day and not just let my hair droop and go flat the minute I go out of the door. I found with this spray that it held it in really well and it didn't make my hair feel sticky to touch, nor did it feel like the strands were glued together into thick clumps like some sprays. In the evening I could brush out my hair before bed and it was fine.


                My daughter's hair is shoulder length and she straightens it and then used the spray over the style she does and I have had no complaints from her asking me to get a better make of spray so I it must be ok for her too.


                The can gives you the normal cautions on the back about not getting it in your eyes and that it is highly flammable.


                Overall, I think this is a good cheap product for everyday use and I would definitely recommend you to give it a try and see if it is for you, at 37p what have you got to lose.

                  What more could you want from a hairspray?

                  I started using this product because of the low price but I've carried on using it because it represents very good value for money and does everything I need a hairspray to do! For the bargain price of 50p you can get 300ml of a product that's just as effective as any of the more expensive brands and in some cases even more so.

                  Ok, so the packaging of this hairspray isn't the most attractive, but its not terrible. I quite like the turquoise colour and it could be worse, it could be the 'value' red and white basic style. The design seems to be based on the Silvikrin can with gold trim and a 'swoosh' design in the middle.

                  I use the 'firm' version of this hairspray, but its also available in natural and extra firm. I've found that this hairspray holds my style pretty much all day with just a top up required if its particularly windy or a particularly tricky style such as tight curls or backcombing.

                  The spray doesn't have a strong smell at all. I often use quite a copious amount of hairspray and with some products it makes you gag, cough and leaves an awful taste in your mouth for hours afterwards. Not so with Tesco hairspray, it has hardly any odour at all and you can even use it with the windows closed!

                  The spray doesn't leave your hair looking stiff and unnatural, even with lots on, you'd have to touch your hair to be aware of just how much spray has been used. It does make a difference to the feel of your hair, like all sprays. You won't be able to run your fingers through it or swish it romantically over your shoulder in the style of a shampoo advert. The spray doesn't leave any powdery or visible residue on the hair and brushes out relatively easy without causing damage or breakage to your hair, or pain to your scalp!

                  I've found that this spray works well as a volumiser if you spray a little onto your hands then work it into your hair at the roots to create lift. You can also spray a little bit into wet hair which will create volume and hold as you dry and style it.

                  I heartily recommend this product to anybody with stubborn or badly behaved hair who is fed up of paying silly prices for brand names. Its just as good as any brand I've ever used, lasts ages, doesn't stink and is a steal.

                  not bad at all considering the price

                  I usually straighten my hair and therefore rarely use styling products however my hair is naturally curly so on occasions when im in a bit of a rush its nice to have some mousse and hairspray to hand. This is the most recent hairspray I have bought.

                  ** The Product **

                  Is obviously hairspray, is part of the Tesco value range.

                  ** Packaging **

                  I think that Tesco must of changed the can a lot, however I believe that the one I have is the latest. Its basically your typical Tesco value packaging, white, blue and red, with a blurred image of a womans hair on the front. On the back you will find the directions for use, ingredients etc. The spray come in a 300ml aerosol can which is recyclable.

                  ** Results **

                  As far as hairspray goes, I personally don't think its bad at all. It doesn't hold very well, so if your looking for a firm holding hairspray then this isn't going to cut it. I only use it to keep my curls looking well... curly and to give my hair a slightly wet look, which it does. The product is easy to brush out although it can leave a slightly sticky feel to your hair (depending on how much you have used).

                  ** Availability and Price **

                  Obviously as it is a Tesco value product it is only available in Tesco and costs approximately 37p.

                  ** Overall Opinion **

                  To be honest I have tried a lot worse hairsprays and at 37p your getting a major bargain. I must have had this product for months and there is still loads left however as previously stated I probably only use it 4-6 times per month.

                  The smell is ok, not the best smelling hairspray but its not unpleasant. This is a perfect hairspray for what I need it for and I think it offers excellent value for money.

                  I would give this product 4/5, I think that for the price of it you cant really complain, however its will not give you a firm hold at all.

                  Disadvantages

                  Give it a try anyway. At that price you can't go wrong!

                  Tesco Value Hairspray

                  Like most of us I have been affected by the credit crunch so I thought I would try to save some money by buying Tesco's Value Hairspray. At 37p for 300 ml it certainly was a bargain compared to the usual price I pay, around £2.00. The can I bought is white with a blue band around it and a white cap although I have seen different designs. There is no indication as to the strength of the hold, such as light, firm or maximum.


                  ~~~ Directions ~~~

                  You hold the can around 10 to 12 inches away and spray evenly over your hair. Mind your face though, as with most hairsprays, it stings if you squirt it in your eyes. If you do be sure to rinse it out with cold water.
                  Use in a well ventilated place to avoid inhaling fumes. I don't know about use around small caged animals and fish but I would not use it or any other similar spay near them just in case the fumes harm them. The can is very flammable so do not puncture or pierce it or smoke whilst spraying your hair. Also do not store the can in direct sunlight.


                  ~~~ My experience ~~~

                  The spray is light and fine and I haven't had any trouble with the nozzle clogging up. It has a delicate perfume which is quite pleasant. My hair is shoulder length and very thick.
                  It did not hold my hair well but was easy to brush out and washed out with ease.


                  ~~~ Summary ~~~

                  I think that this must be a light hold hairspray and not really strong enough for my untamed mane! I will use this can up but not buy it again as it is not really suitable for me. I will continue to buy the more expensive hairsprays such as Silvikrin firm hold as they hold my hair in a better style.

                  However if you have fine hair or like a spray with a light hold, Tesco Value hairspray will probably work for you and save you a lot of money too. I'm giving it three stars because my hair is unusually wild and it may suit you very well! Worth a try!
