It's been quite some time since I last reviewed a hair styling product here on Skin Deep so it seemed timely that today's review is of Lee Stafford Fat Flexible Hold Hairspray.
I've been using the cult L'Oreal Elvive Hairspray for as long as I can remember & I've repurchased it time & time again. Nonetheless, the bright pink packaging of Lee Stafford Fat Flexible Hold Hairspray would stand out if I saw it on a shop shelf. It's unashamedly girlie & in keeping with the drugstore branding.
The directions are clear and easy to follow. What's more, I appreciated the "stylist's tip" which recommends tipping hair upside down when applying for added volume- this really works!
The spray was delivered in a fine mist which was easy to control and didn't wet hair.
Lee Stafford Fat Flexible Hold Hairspray boasts the brand's sweet signature scent, which I'm not personally a fan of. Thankfully, I was only able to detect the scent during application and it didn't bother me once it had been applied as my hair simply smelt fresh.
Initially, it was possible to feel a light residue of the product in my hair but it wasn't sticky, crunchy or uncomfortable. This disappeared after brushing. I'd describe it as adding light hold to styles and I also noticed that it helped to tame frizz & flyaways.
Lee Stafford Fat Flexible Hold Hairspray is described by the company as a lightweight, non-sticky, non-gunky hairspray with Style Memory to hold style in place without sacrificing natural movement & bounce, for hair that still looks & feels like hair! I feel that it delivers on the claims and would recommend checking it out. That said, I feel that at £6.49 for 200ml it's slightly overpriced & I'd advise waiting until it's on offer (which the brand often is) to pick it up.
