Finishing spray? Shine spray? What is the difference? There are a lot of factors that go into choosing the perfect hairspray for your everyday style. Let me take this opportunity to explain to you all about the different types of hairspray available on the market.
What is Hairspray?
Hair spray (aka lacquer or spritz) is defined as a solution that is sprayed onto the hair to hold it in place. The solution is made of long, chainlike molecules called polymers, that add structural support to the hair. Basically, this just makes your hair either stick to other pieces of hair, or stiffen, making it difficult for it to move.
Although hairsprays are most commonly purchased in an aerosol can, they can also be found in a pump bottle. Many people chose the pump nozzle types of hairspray to avoid the harmful chemicals found in aerosol cans, as well as the ability to easily catch fire. Pump nozzle-type hairsprays also provide more of a wet-look, making them a popular alternative to people with curly hair.
