      Tresemme Freeze Hold Hairspray

      My eldest daughter is at that age now were she is beginning to become more and more interested in clothes, make - up and hair. For Christmas, she asked for curling tongs and was forever going on about how she wanted to have curly hair. At first I was a little apprehensive but in the end decided to buy her some on the understanding that they would be kept in my room and she would not be allowed to use them by herself. Come Christmas day she was over the moon to discover the particular hair styler she wanted, along with a bottle of this Tresemme "Freeze Hold" hairspray to keep those curls in place.

      Tresemmes "Freeze Hold" hairspray comes presented in a 250ml aluminium bottle, with a spray nozzle on top. The bottle itself is a little boring looking really with a simple white and blue design, the brand and product name are clearly displayed on the front.

      General information is given on the back including ingredients, warnings, expert tips and directions for use, all of which should be read thoroughly before use. Obviously the product should be kept of out the reach of children, I keep this in a safe place in my bedroom and again my daughter is only allowed to use it with my supervision. I cannot see a use by date anywhere on the bottle, so in theory it should last for quite sometime!

      Tresemme claim that this hairspray is of a "professional quality" but at an affordable price, my partner actually picked this up last minute on Christmas Eve and I didn't ask how much it cost him, although he did mention it was on offer. A quick look online shows its full price to be £4.99, which I think is reasonable enough.

      The product has been given the name "freeze hold" which sounds rather impressive. According to Tresemme it is fast drying and gives ling lasting hold even in a humid climate.

      We have put this product to the test quite a bit during December, my daughter wanted her hair to be curled often over the Christmas period whilst we were visiting relatives etc. Its not used so much now she is back at school, in fact we only used it once during January for a birthday party at the weekend. My daughter certainly doesn't have the patients to sit and get her hair curled every day or anything and it is not something I would encourage on a regular basis.

      The hairspray itself smells of...well generic hairspray really, it is rather strong but not particularly unpleasant or headache inducing. After curling my daughters hair I spray a small amount on her hair, it dries really quickly and doesn't leave the hair feeling sticky at all. Some hairsprays I have used in the past have made the hair feeling a little crunchy, however with this one the hair remains soft, in fact you can run your fingers thought it. My daughters hair is really long and thick, the hairspray holds the style in place for a good few hours before it begins to drop out, I certainly couldn't see it lasting the full 24 hours as promised, but for my daughters needs it lasts long enough. I must admit, I have pinched the hairspray once or twice myself (and the hair styler for that matter!) and have been really happy with the results, I found that my hair felt light and bouncy and not weighed down like some hairsprays can feel.

      We have found this to be a great hairspray, as it is not used very often I can imagine it will last us a long time. I feel a 4 star rating is appropriate as it promises to hold the style for a lot longer than it actually does.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      if you need good hold there is nothing stronger, but it might be too much hold for some people

      "professional, affordable"
      I think this might be the most succinct catchphrase ever coined, despite the fact i've never seen a single professional using tresseme.

      Not to worry though, as i'm no pro!
      The picture above is wrong, in the UK the freeze spray is white (at least the ones I get are white) .

      The big can's cost about £5 when they're not on offer, which although isn't expensive does begrudge me slightly, but on the plus side they do last for ages.

      With this being the highest level of strength 'freeze' spray, you only have to use a tiny amount to get your hair to stay in place, but if you put too much on your hair can easily become a horrible crispy mat of hair.
      The only thing that can remove it is a full shower, just brushing it out will cause it to flake and it will look like you have awfully bad dandruff.

      The smell is the wort thing about freezespray though, it smells like cheap vodka and is so strong you'll want to use it in a well ventilated area

      For those days I want to leave the house with my hair glued in one position and to not have to worry about wind, rain, accidental nudges there is no better product than freezespray, for people who want good hold but with their hair to still have touchable texture, there are maybe better products for you.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Provides great hold for hours on end!

      I've tried a lot of hairspray over the years, ranging from homebrand cans (39p!)to luxury brands (£14), but I always, always, always return to my favourite - Tresemme. It costs around £4 for a huge 500ml spray can, and lasts for months.

      PACKAGING
      The spray I purchase is encased in a large white can. It is instantly recognisable and features a large black lid. The lid is made of a soft plastic and is easily removed, and the spray can button on the top of the can is very easy to press. The only problem I had was that after months of use, hairspray had stuck to the inside components of this button and it made it harder to get the hairspray to spray evenly out (we're talking about the last few drops of hairspray however - I'm very picky!).

      THE SPRAY
      - Scent -
      Tresemme Freeze Hold has a very dsitinctive scent, though does smell simply like hairspray. It doesn't have a 'old woman' scent as many hairsprays tend to have, but is instead classic and modern. You can imagine the scent filling hair salons.

      - Hold -
      'Freeze Hold' has quite strong conotations and this hairspray certainly lived up to them! A light coating of hairspray kepy my hair virtually in place all day, in both indoor and outdoor conditions. I'd say the volume of my hair reduced slightly, but strands stayed in place. A thicker coating of hairspray felt much heavier on my head, and weighed my hair down a little - but provided excellent hold. Definitely the best hold of all the hairsprays I've tried. Be warned though, if you have very fine hair you will need only a light mist of this hairspray otherwise your hair may clump or be weighed down.

      * Use sparingly and build up to desired effect
      * Lasts AGES! Around 3 or 4 months with regular use

      4/5

      My daughter was christened in April and I went to a lot of effort with my clothes, make-up and hair as I wanted to make an effort for my babies special day, and of course look nice in the pictures as well! I don't usually use hair spray as I'm a fan of the care free look rather than having my hair really neat and precise, and I only bought this to keep my hair in place as my boyfriend's sister was kind enough to style it for me. I bought this in advance of the christening to make sure that I had all of the cosmetics and hair styling accessories that I needed so that I wasn't rushing around like a looney on the day.

      I purchased my can of the hair spray from Superdrug. I chose this mainly because it was on offer, but also because I've tried some of the Tresemme shampoo and conditioner's and I think that they're pretty good quality. I got my 500ml can for around £3.80 if I remember correctly and the RRP is £4.79, although Superdrug have a long term 2 for £6.99 offer on all Tresemme hair care products. Places like Amazon, Boots and various supermarkets sell this too so obviously prices vary very slightly from place to place.

      Although the RRP does seem quite expensive, you get a lot for your money - the can is massive!! I've had my can of this for a few months and me and my friends (and my boyfriend, lol) have used this countless times when preparing for nights out etc and the bottle still seems pretty full. The hair spray comes in a large (but lightweight) rectangular aerosol can, which is white with black writing stating the brand name and there's a blue band with the product name; freeze hairspray written on it.

      The bottle has directions for use etc on the back and the black plastic lid pulls off to reveal a nozzle which you press down on to release the spray. The hole from which the spray is dispensed from is quite small meaning that the spray comes out in a very fine mist. The spray has a suprisingly nice scent - it does smell like average hair spray with chemical tones noticeable however it also has a sweet scent which I find really refreshing and it reminds me a little of the Tresemme vitamin E shampoo.

      The hair spray should be shaken before you use it and the trick is to not use too much - if you do, it'll make your hair appear wet and sticky - not a good luck at all! I spray this after styling my hair making sure there are no strands or frizzy bits present. I then hold it at arms length away from my head and just press down and spray it all over my hair. The effects are noticeable quite quicky and my hair feels much more 'solid' - it doesn't give that unattractive legohead hair look though! This doesn't add a noticeable amount of weight to to my hair and although my hair is held very firmly in place it doesn't look like I've applied mounds of hair spray - it looks relatively natural, as long as it is applied very sparingly.

      This is very effective and it keeps my hair in place for ages - it was still in place (apart from a few strands) the morning after I used it to style my hair for the christening. My hair is very thick, so I am really pleased with this hair spray's lasting power and strength. I always wash my hair the day after using this as it takes too much effort to brush out; strands of hair become stuck together after a while and it feels quite tacky, which goes against Tresemme's claim that it brushes out easily, which does knock one star off unfortuately. It does keep hair firmly in place though, so I recommend it.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A good hairspray for a very strong hold

      Tresemme is great value for money, and it is marketed as still being salon quality. The hairspray itself does indeed provide a "freeze hold" and takes effect very quickly after application. I have used the hairspray for about 2 years and a can will typically last me around 3 months which is great value for money. It should be used sparingly as it can give hair a shiny, fake looking effect if too much is used as but it provides a solid hold against wind and other daily occurance which may effect the styling. I would say its perfect for medium length hair as it does make the hair look like it has been sprayed and therefore if it was used on longer hair it may not look as natural. I am male also, and I would recommend this to men with medium length hair as it provides a more natural look than using any other means of styling like gel or wax which can give the hair a greesy feel which hairspray doesn't. So I would recommend this from my experiences, for best results it should be used sparingly. Also it does build up and it can be hard to comb out as it does hold the hair so strongly. Another problem is that it does leave the hair feeling quite hard and it doesn't feel natural to the touch which may effect some peoples decision to use the product.

      Disadvantages

      Not as good as I thought ... hair spray is too heavy and too expensive

      Over the last few years I have used many different hair sprays - my favourite been tesco's own surprisingly! However when they didn't have it in stock in my local express store I had to buy some from the nearest shop been the chemist and Tresemme freeze was the only one available. It was on offer at £2.99 rather than the full price of £4.99 which is still expensive for a hairspray. I bought it anyway as I had used Tresemme shampoo and conditioner before which are pretty good so thought I would give it ago.
      The container is pretty simple like most hair sprays, easy to use and quite light. I used it several times when straightening my hair however when it dried my hair just sort of stuck. It did make it freeze and stay in place but it was just too heavy on my hair as its quite fine and my hair just looked as though it was set and didn't look natural.
      I used it when I curled my hair and I do need lots of strong hair spray to keep my curls in all day so it worked pretty well for that. I didn't end up using all the hair spray I threw it away as soon as the Tesco one came back in stock. The hair spray does exactly what it says on the can but wasn't suitable for my hair as I have quite fair hair. It is also an expensive hair spray compared to most so I would say you should try other cheaper hair sprays before trying this one.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Great product

      I only tend to wear hairspray if I've gone to the effort to style my hair. However, for my wedding a couple of months ago, I had my hair curled and swept round the side, and as such I needed something that would keep my style in place, stop any stray hairs falling out, and would allow my curls to last all day.

      Cue my best friend and only bridesmaid, coming to mine the week before with a bag of "essential items" for me, which included this hairspray. We knew the hairdresser would apply hairspray before we left the house, but we wanted something we could keep in one of the bedrooms to reapply if we felt the need.

      I didn't ask my friend how much she paid for it, as it didn't really seem appropriate given the kindness of the gesture. However, looking online I have discovered that this currently retails at £2.69 for a 250ml can. This is on the Boots website, but I have a feeling you can probably pick this up slightly cheaper at discount stores and supermarkets. It also comes in a carry size can which is ideal for handbags. I have since seen the price of other hairsprays and while this one isn't the cheapest, it does perform well.

      The hairspray is part of the Tresemme range, which is advertised as providing a salon finish without salon prices. I've never really tried any products from the range, nor do I usually wear hairspray, so I was curious as to how this product would perform. This particular hairspray provides heavy-duty control to your hairstyle, and Tresemme claim it will "instantly freeze your look in a flash with its gripping polymers" (taken from www.tresemme.co.uk/hairspray). It is designed to prevent flyaways, and stop your hairstyle falling flat, with a fast drying formula. Tresemme claim that this product is humidity-resistant for 24 hours.

      Using the hairspray is very simple, although its not a product in my daily routine I have enough common sense to know how to apply it. You spray onto the area you wish to apply it, preferably section by section to achieve maximum hold. It is also recommended to spray around 10 - 12 inches away from the hair, otherwise you risk it looking wet, or even worse, greasy.

      I found it very easy to apply this product, the spray comes out in a constant spurt and it's easy to aim where you're trying to apply. I first used this on my wedding day, for an overall spritz rather than working through section by section. It did an excellent job of holding my style in place right up until the end of the night, and my curls stayed curly despite the fact it was a reasonably warm day and I was concerned the humidity might spoil my hair.

      The hairspray doesn't make your hair go crispy, but does make the style rock solid. Once I'd taken my hair grips out I had problems getting my hair to budge, which wasn't an issue at the hair trial when the hairdresser had used a different hairspray. Having said that, I was reapplying it at every toilet break so perhaps my useage was a little excessive.

      I have used this hairspray since the wedding, as I've had my hair chopped a little shorter and have been straightening it a fair bit, and I find it does a good job of keeping flyaways at bay. It only makes the hair go rock solid if you use it a lot, if you apply it once in the morning like most people do it should be fine.

      This is an excellent product, and one I will be using in future when I can be bothered to go to the efforts of styling my hair.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A pretty good product, but cheaper ones are available

      I have tried many different hairsprays over the years, and one of the ones I have tried before is the Tresemme Freeze Hold Hairspray. This is meant to be able to hold your style in just like your hair had been frozen into place. I liked the sound of this and I thought I would try it out, as anything that makes my hair look better, without extra effort is always a good thing for me.

      I went into Boots and bought a can of this, which cost me £4.99 for 500ml can. This is a lot more expensive than the usual hairspray I buy, which is in the same size can. The can is dark in colour, and has an dark lid which I found easy to pull of when I needed to use the spray. The spray works the same as pretty much every other hair spray, just push the nozzle and spray towards your hair.

      The spray smells quite nice, it does have the usual "hairspray scent" but it also has a nice scent that smells some what like the shampoo that is also made by Tresemme. It is a sweet smell, that reminds me of a salon. The spray comes out in a really nice mist, which disperses easily and smoothly, so you can guarentee where it is landing on your hair, and you can concentrate extra on the places of your hair when you need to put more in certain places.

      The actual power of the hairspray is quite impressive, I was expecting less of it if I am honest. I found that it held my hairstyle in place all night on a hot night out, even when I went in fancy dress as Snooki from Jersey Shore. I had a very high, bouffant hair style that night, and I was very worried about it dropping down or just becoming a drastic mess, but luckily this hairspray did a fantastic job and my hair looked exactly the same at the end of the night as it did when I had first done it. I hadn't actually used a lot of the hairspray that night either. It managed to withstand a night of dancing in a hot and sweaty club for hours, as well as cold, windy weather when I was outside.

      I used this hairspray for many months, and I can happily say it did well everytime I used it. It was a little bit difficult to brush out, but I have had found other hairsprays to be much harder to brush out. There was no problems with flaking or the hairspray drying my hair out in anyway. It does add a slight shine to my hair as well, which is a bonus I think.

      I have since gone back to my usual hair spray, as I found that it does pretty much the exact same job, but it is much cheaper than buying the Tresemme Freeze Hold Hairspray. If you do wish to try this, you can buy it in quite a few places now. It is available in Boots, Asda, Superdrug and some other large supermarkets. It usually costs £4.99 for the 500ml can, but the price may vary in different stores.

      I found that this is a good hairspray, but there is cheaper alternatives that will do the same job. I give this hairspray a 4 out of 5 stars. Had the price been a bit lower, I would have given this 5 stars. I recommend this hairspray for those who have big hair styles that need a to have a good holding job.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A good hold hairspray, but has some disadvantages to it.

        I first bought this hairspray when i saw that it was on offer at Tesco. It was only £2 for a 500ml can. Whereas usually it retails at £4.99. I decided to choose this hairspray as I personally believe that Tresemme are a reliable brand and i have bought other products from them before and never had any complaints about them. So this hairspray was the perfect for me too try out whilst it was on offer. You can buy this hairspray from stores such as Boots, Asda, Tesco, Superdrug and many more.

        The hairspray comes in a 500ml bottle which is very large, therefore it is not easy to quickly shove in your bag or take traveling. However if you are traveling there is also a 100ml tin of this hairspray which may be better as it is a lot lighter this costs £1.86 and there is also a 250ml tin which costs £2.60. But the large 500ml is good to have at home and also it lasts a long time! I got mine about a month and half ago and there is still loads in it and i use hairspray almost every single day.

        The hairspray comes in a large white tin with a black bold lid. It has flashes and writing in blue silver and black all over the tin, this gives the look of ice which explains the name 'freeze hold'. The product has a very nice scent and smells the same as all other Tresemme products.

        This hairspray is the strongest level of hold which Tresemme have, so i thought this would be the best for me as i tend to put my hair in styles which need to be held in place all night for example on a night out having a large quiff. This product claims to provide all day control and long lasting extra strong hold. It also claims to brush out easily and wont build up or flake. Also it claims to last for up too 24 hours.

        Does this product work?
        This product certainly keeps your hair in place, does it keep it in place for 24 hours?well i think yes it does. Even when i have fallen asleep after a night out and say not taken my quiff out due to being to tired to even bother then i will wake up and my quiff will still be in place. It wont look as pretty as it may of done but it is still in place. I found that you do not need a large amount of the hairspray for it too work either! I have in the past had to top up on my hairspray all the time, but no not with this one!
        However this hairspray does have disadvantages. I have found that it makes your hard feel rock solid. Which Is not the best look but i suppose it can be hidden. Sometimes though my hair sticks together in large clumps from this hairspray. Also it is very sticky. The product claims that the hairspray brushes out easily. I also disagree that the product 'brushes out easily' i feel that once i have used this hairspray my hair feels horrible and hard no matter how much I try to brush it out, i have to wash my hair to get that soft feeling back. Also i have found that i have got flakes from this hairspray and the product also claims it wont 'flake'.

        However i believe that this hairspray is the best for holding styles that are different. Also i often spray hairspray on my face over my make up and i have found that this one really helps my make up last a lot longer! So it does come in handy for more than just my hair.

        Thank you for reading!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Was so impressed on using that it replaced my regular hair spray

          I originally bought this hairspray following a recommendation from a friend when I was going to be putting my hair up a la Bride of Frankenstein at a Halloween party. I had fairly long straight dark hair which is very thick and I have always found it very difficult to keep under control. The hairspray cost me around £5 but this was for a large 500ml can which has lasted me ages. The only disadvantage with this is that the can is so large it barely fits in any of my drawers.

          I have tried the Tresemme shampoos and conditioners before and wasn't really a fan of these so was slightly put of going for this hairspray but the recommendation was a trustworthy one so I went ahead. Putting the hairspray on I found it went well - the nozzle didn't get blocked, I didn't end up getting liquid running out of the bottle and down my arm as has happened before. You don't avoid the usual 'hair-sprayey' smell but after a while it does have a fairly pleasant smell to it.

          The spray gave great hold to my hair and despite partying into the small hours and no doubt paying increasingly little attention to how I looked, the picture evidence shows that my hair was still very much up and styled late on into the evening which I was really impressed by.

          The aspect of this hairspray that surprised me the most was how easily it brushes out of my hair. I had a ridiculously complex system of clips/hairspray/rollers holding my hair up the first night I used it and was expecting to have a lot of post-party pain while taking my hair down but it was very surprisingly easy to remove/brush out. I do only use hairspray occasionally and was previously very put off using any very strong hold hair sprays due to the sticky/hard hair that can be left afterwards but this changed my mind and I now use the Tresemme freeze hold as my regular hair spray.

          A great way to keep your hair in place all day long

          I am a major fuss pot when it comes to cosmetics in general, but my hair is my pride and joy so it takes priority above everything else. I have tried a vast array of products when it comes to hairspray, from cheaper alternatives to premium branded ones such as Bedhead which although they are good cost an arm and a leg and you don't get all that much for your money. I have used some Tresemme products in the past like shampoos and conditioners and I like their slogan 'hair salon quality without the price tag' (may not be exactly that but something similar!), it really appeals to people like myself. I have really long, thick hair which can be difficult to style, let alone keep it place so I can be really critical of products if they don't come up to scratch. I am into volumised hair and tend to use back combing as a way to create volume and texture but keeping it in place all day really is a challenge.

          Tresemme have a good reputation for producing excellent products similar to those used in salons, without such a pricey tag which is true of this product. I have found in the past that when you initially apply a hair spray it'll hold your hair but as soon as you step outside it stops working so the claim of 'freezing' the hair seemed like a great idea that would suit me down to the ground. This product can be found in Boots, as well as online and in stores like Superdrug for around £5. I paid £4.89 for mine in Boots when there was an offer on for 2 Tresemme products for £6 so naturally I snapped that up! If you have an advantage card you can get 16 points for purchasing this product. This comes in a large bottle in either black or white, and with 500 ml of product even the biggest hair spray addict would take a good while to get through a bottle of this.

          After purchasing, I incorporated this into my beauty routine the next morning and after taking the time to style my hair, I pressed onto the spray mechanism which gave an even dispersion of product onto my hair which dried really quickly but it didn't make my hair feel sticky or uncomfortable. I found it lasted all day and my hair stayed exactly in place despite it being windy outside. I used it the following day but applied a little too much which left my hair feeling a little crisp so watch out for that. It also brushes out really easy and doesn't leave any residue which is really nice making it an easy product overall to use and keep your hair in place.

          The only hairspray you'll ever need.

          ** About Tresemme Freeze Hold Hairspray **

          Tresemme Freeze Hold is a fast drying, no build up, professional formula hairspray. It provides all day control and long lasting extra strong hold. It has 24 hour climate control and humidity resistance. It also promises to brush out easily.

          The hairspray should be shook, held upright and sprayed 10-12 inches from the hair. It should be sprayed evenly over finished style.

          The hairspray comes in a 500ml can or smaller 100ml can. It is white, quite simple looking with a black lid. The 500ml retails at around £5.00 and the 100ml retails at around £2.00. Tresemme Freeze Hold Hairspray is widely available from places such as Boots, Superdrug and Wilkinsons.

          ** Personal Experience **

          I use Tresemme Freeze Hold Hairspray almost everyday. I currently have a shortish fringe which needs to be curled under everyday otherwise it looks very silly. If I don't put some hairspray on afterwards it doesn't stay curled for long. Some hairsprays that I've used have initially held my fringe in place but then worn off throughout the day, causing a fringe disaster! I find that Tresemme Freeze Hold is the best hairspray for the job - it keeps my fringe in place all day long, without the need for a top up.

          I used to have a long fringe (or no fringe, it depends on how you look at it...) that I often used to put up in a 'quiff'. Before I started using Tresemme Freeze Hold it was an absolute nightmare to get it to stand up and hold into place - I spent a fortune on hair products! I found giving it a little backcomb, pinning it up, then giving it a few sprays all over did the job perfectly. As this was a particularly awkward style to hold in place I found that I used significantly more than I would have on a simpler style, but it held my quiff up all day long without the need to re-apply which at the time seemed like quite a task! It also worked well to keep small stray hairs at bay (the strands of hair which try to escape your hairstyle no matter what!) which made my style look neat and tidy.

          I usually have straightened hair but on the odd occassion I have it curled. Unfortunately I tend to have problems with curls as they fall out very quickly. I have used lots of different hairsprays and they've never solved my problem, but Tresemme Freeze Hold works really well for me and keeps my curls curly all day long! I like to regularly try lots of different styles, particularly 1940s/1950s styles that require lots of curling and pinning so this hairspray comes in really useful.

          Tresemme Freeze Hold doesn't feel sticky or tacky when it's on my hair. It doesn't build up or flake (unless I use spray too close and use too much) and brushes out easily enough (I find a little bit of water and a comb is the easiest way). Occasionally when I use lots of Freeze Hold (Eg. the quiff) it makes my hair cardboard-like to touch but you can't tell by looking at my hair - plus if it's effective I don't really care how it feels.

          Tresemme Freeze Hold doesn't appear to have the fruity scent that most of it's products have and smells just like regular hairspray to me. There is no bunny logo on the can, but I am lead to believe (by the powers of Google) that Tresemme don't test their products on animals.

          The things I love about this hairspray are that it's very effective (holds any of my styles perfectly), it has long lasting results (usually no need to top up) and you only need a small amount (and therefore each can lasts me a while). I use the 500ml can indoors and also carry around a 100ml can in my bag incase of an emergency top up.

          If you are looking for a hairspray that will give super strong hold and keep awkward styles in place, I recommend this hairspray to you.

            Good quality hairspray that does what it says on the can

            I first picked up tresemme freeze hold when it was on offer in boots some time ago, and i'd never go back to using another hairspray. For £5 you get a 500ml can, which will last for absolutely ages. When i used to use hairspray every day it lasted me months, so if you were just using it on occasion then the can would last for god knows how long, far surpassing the other hair sprays on the market. The hair spray itself is a fine mist that really does have a "freeze hold". You really don't need that much to keep your hair in place, as using too much (as with other hairspray's) can leave your hair feeling crispy and sticky. The fact that you only need to spray your hair for about 5 seconds with it also adds to the length of time that the can will last for. The spray doesn't have an overpowering smell like most over hairspray's and if anyone uses tresemme conditioner, it smells very similar to that!

            Wouldn't reccomend it - much better out there

            We all grow up, we change, we go through phases, we look back and wonder what we were thinking only to do the same thing again and again.

            Meanwhile the aspect of you that seems to change most with these 'trends' is your hair.

            For me it was when i was about 13, that i thought i was an 'emo kid' - that was the coolest thing back then i guess, and its what all the girls wanted ;)

            Anyway, what you're all dying to know is about the hair product - but to understand that you have to understand Emo hair. Its all wavy and flicky and doesn't make sense. It tries to be 'individual' if you like.

            I bought this hair spray to try and fix my hair into these once 'cool' shapes etc. But after everything I decided that it was no good, there are plenty of much better waxes that retain shape but hardly affect the feel of your hair. This tresemme product Makes your hair feel like a helmet. Its horrible and if your an emo kid flirting with a girl and she runs her hand through you're long dazzling blonde hair to feel that... Its 'naaawt' cool.

            Fair enough it holds the hair in position, but i certainly wouldn't reccomend it and its hardly cheap either.

            A great everyday hairspray that does exactly what it says on the tin!

            The quality of hairspray can vary so much from brand to brand that when you find a good one you should definately keep hold of it - and this is a great one!

            My hair is long and very straight so I find it very hard to add any kind of body to it that lasts - curls tend to drop out of my hair within minutes of me stying them and it all ends up looking a bit lacklustre.

            This hairspray is an absolute godsend - it literally does 'freeze' your style in place and, what's more, it holds it there all day and all night if you need it to.

            The spray doesn't leave your hair feeling sticky as such - but you can tell that you have hairspray on when you touch your hair which may put some people off but I don't find it a problem at all. Another bonus is that it brushes out really easily and doesn't leave your hair knotted or sticky as so many other sprays do. You don't need to wash your hair straight after using it so I think it is great and will definately be buying this for a long time to come!

            I got mine on offer in Boots for only £3, but the usual price is £4.29 and it lasts for ages so is definately value for money!
