When I go out on a night out, I like to have big, huge, massive hair. It takes a lot of time and effort, and you need to have the right type of products to help you, but I always find the process worthwhile. My latest hairspray to be purchased was the Your Highness Firm Hold Hair Spray by Tigi.
What does the product do?
The hairspray promises to instantly give the hair volume and to set your style firmly in place. The hold claims to be strong but invisible with an unbeatable hold and it promises to leave your hair frizz free. The hairspray contains Violet, Jasmine, Wisteria and Lavender to condition the hair and prevent static. It also contains UV filters to help to protect the hair from damage from the sun, as well as an added fragrance to leave your hair smelling delicious.
How do you use the product?
You are directly to hold the hairspray around 10-12 inches from the hair and then hold down the dispenser to spray the product in short burst. You are told to use the product under the style as opposed to spraying it on top and then spritz it to set the finished style. I tend to section off the hair and then after back combing the section, spraying the underneath of the section to set the volume in place.
Packaging and Price
The product comes contained within the average hair spray can. It is nicely decorated in a royal purple and black colour, just like the others in the Your Highness collection, and it looks pretty on display and classy. It has some extra information about the product on the back of the bottle and it has a dispenser at the top which you push down on to spray the hairspray. The product can be bought from hair salons and also from online websites and it will cost you around £10 for a 300ml can.
Application and Performance
The product does have a nice smell which is unusual for a hair spray. It has a citrus smell like oranges and lemons so it really is quite fruity. It also has that chemical aroma which you would expect but this scent was a pleasant suprise for a product of this type. When you push down on the dispenser, it release a constant stream of the hairspray so you don't want to push down for long. The can is easy to hold and the stream is directed so you can aim it accurately. The strong is evident throughout the whole process. The hairspray is really strong and initially it is rather sticky and tacky but this is what I was looking for.
It holds my backcombing firmly in place which enables me to get massive volume in my hair. It doesn't irritate my scalp or cause me any discomfort. The product stays in place for a long time and my hair still looks big and in place by the time I get home. It doesn't go flaky and it makes my hair look healthy and shiny when it is spritzed on the outside. This is super strong stuff and you won't be able to brush the hair through after application and it isn't really suitable for the day time. I can't comment on the UV protection as we never see the sun.
All in all, I am very happy with this product. It offers a super strong hold which keeps your hair firmly in place and allows you to create big, massive hair styles. It smells nice for a hair spray and doesn't irritate my scalp or become flaky. It isn't really suitable for day wear but if you like to create big hair styles then you can't go far wrong with this one.
