How To Use Hairspray The Right Way

Follow these tips and you can't go wrong! To ensure you spray your hair correctly, read the following tips before the styling process.

  • Hold the spray nozzle at least 30cm (12 inches) away from your hair when spraying, and always spray in a continuous motion.
  • Make sure the spray nozzle is not gummed up, as you’ll want a fine mist rather than it to come out in spurts.
  • To achieve more hair volume, one of the best hairspray tips is to hold your head upside down and shake your hair while spraying. You can also lift segments of your hair and spray underneath.
  • For those with a sensitive or itchy scalp, be careful using hairspray as you should only apply it to the hair, as the alcohol in the product can dry the scalp and cause irritation.
  • To tame unruly strands, it’s okay to spray the product into your hands and smooth your hair down.
