Stellar hairspray

I am not a huge user of hairspray, but I received a free sample of the No. 4 Non-Aerosol Hairspray with a Birchbox purchase and decided to try it out. It came out of the bottle a little thick, but you can fix that by just holding it further away from your head when applying. If you hold it too close (like I did the first time...whoops!) it does leave your hair "crisp" and it's super obvious that you used too much hairspray. But if you adjust and apply it correctly, you hair stays softer and more "hair-like" in nature, rather than gross, crisp, and plastic like most other hairsprays do. It has great long-lasting staying power. I'm talking incredible staying power. I'm not too much in favor of the smell (hence the 4 stars). Honestly it kind of reminds me of my grampa's cologne...But other than that I'm a huge fan. Highly recommend!

Great for super hold, not too touchable though.
Sampled

If you're putting your hair up into a 'do that requires mega hold, this is your spray. It smells nicer than any other hairspray and holds really really well. However it can be kind of crunchy and can weigh your hair down, so if you're looking for something to help with volume (rather than hold still into a specific shape all day and night) then this is not for you. It is the best non-aerosol super-hold hairspray I've found.

Lovely hairspray
Sampled

This hairspray is pretty good. I haven't had a whole lot of success with non-aerosol hairsprays before, but this one works very well. It has great hold, without giving my hair that permanently wet look, being crunchy or causing snarls when I try and brush it out at the end of the day. And to boot the hold is flexible, yet phenomenal - meaning it holds up well, but can be readjusted if needed.

Great to keep in my work touch-up kit!

Although this product leaked in transit, I still enjoyed it. It was nice to have a spray that held in place but wasn't crunchy. Not sure I would pay $30 for it but we'll see once my tiny bottle is finished...

Pretty good, not great though
Sampled

This hairspray did hold for most of the day without being too crunchy, just like it said! Doesn't have a bad smell either. However, I honestly didn't see much of a difference between this and any other kind of hairspray. It's definitely good hairspray, but nothing outrageously special.

Best hairspray. Ever.

Hairspray holds but doesn't flake out and isn't super stiff. Bounces back. Great for super short hair or hair that needs a little extra support. Love it love it love it

Best Hairspray Ever

The non-aerosol took some getting used to at first - I would spray way too much in my hair. However, just a light spray will work perfectly! This spray holds so well...and not to mention, it smells great.

Great hold - not a fan of the scent
Sampled

This hairspray help my hair just like it should. A little crunchy, but definitely the hold I need. What I didn't like was the way it smelled it when I put it on – very hairspray-y.

Great Smell - Great Hairspray!!
Purchased

I received this first as a samle and came back to purchase it! A little goes a long ways, doesn't crunch and not sticky and the smell is great and lasts (my husband noticed the smell one day at lunch and I sprayed it on my hair before work at like 6:30 that morning)!! I have to say you don't smell the harsh chemicals like other hair sprays! So if you are looking for a chemical-free product this is it!

I love this hairspray, It holds my hair without leaving it crunchy. I used it for prom and my curls stayed all night! Plus I love the fact that it is good for the environment.
