Number 4 Hair Care

Birchbox Breakdown

It’s rare to find a hairspray that’s great for our hair and the environment. This non-aerosol mist fits the mold: it’s full of natural botanicals to nourish strands, and it provides the strong yet flexible hold you need to tame flyaways and support updos. Best of all, the earth-friendly formula doesn’t contain any harmful chemicals.

How it Works

Styling resins provide flexible hold and shine while humidity resistance technology reduces frizz, even on the hottest summer days. Heliogenol protects colored and untreated hair against free radical damage. All Number 4 products are vegan and free of gluten, sulfates, and parabens.

How to Use

After styling, spray product 10 to 12 inches away from hair for natural, lasting hold.

LOVE IT!
Purchased

This is the best hairspray I have ever used. Light-weight, good for the earth and smells fantastic. I originally got a sample and ended up buying it.

Doesn't leave your hair hard!!

I love it and loved the travel size for carry on luggage. It smells great, helps hair stay in place during wind and doesn't make your hair hard!

Amazing Hairspray!

I have recently had to switch to non-aerosol products due to a medical conditrion and this hairspray works very well. It also has a pleasing scent. My hair stayed in place all day and did not feel sticky, even in the southern humidity. I also loved how my "crazy waves and curls" were defined. I have added this to my fav's and am buying it as soon as my sample is gone.

Good for curls

I have curly hair and this hairspray is perfect for it. It tames the crazy and keeps my curls in check. Good smell, too.

Doesn't hold well

I like the idea of a non-aerosol spray, but this one doesn't hold as well as a medium hold spray that I'm used to using. It also made my bangs slightly greasy by the end of the work day.

Lovely scent; works on fine hair

I love the scent of this hairspray and appreciate the level of hold. My hair is fine, so I need a product that helps my hair hold its shape while not weighing it down. Like other Number 4 products, it has a light, slightly floral scent that I find particularly appealing. Though it's on the slightly expensive side, I plan on purchasing a full-size bottle.

OK

I think this product is great for what it is. It held my hair in place without making it too stiff. However, I don't think this was any different than any other non-aerosol hairspray I have used, which is why I only give it three stars. But it does it's job!

Does the trick

This hairspray works great. Often times, I will work hard on a hairstyle, but it will fall flat. This hairspray helps to ensure that it stays in place.

Number 4 is Number 1 Again

I will admit, I do not regularly use hairspray. I typically use it for special occasions when I decide to curl my uncooperative hair. I only use non-aerosol hairsprays, as the thought of inhaling those fumes brings me back to my childhood days of coughing up a storm of Aqua Net. I don't think my hair could withstand that, let alone my lungs!

I use Number 4's Comb Prep and Protect daily. I decided the best way to use their hairspray would be to curl my hair. The scent was a 4 out of 5. Not bad at all. It held my curls for a few hours, which is pretty typical for my current hairspray. I thought it was an effective product, but as I do not use hairspray regularly, I cannot justify the expense.
