I've actually been looking for a hairspray that does just this - give a good but moveable hold, and reduces frizz. I used it when putting my hair up in a sock bun the other day, and it did a great job of holding and slicking my hair back. I used it today for a more retro hairstyle, and the hold was FANTASTIC without being stiff at all! I do think the smell is something to be warned about - even though I actually kinda like it, it's DEFINITELY noticeable, and isn't for everyone. It's so strong, my boss thought it was my perfume today! If you can handle the smell, definitely recommend this product!
