@Stormchild:  Are you sure you’re allergic to hairspray? Is it possible you had a reaction to a scent that was added? Could you be allergic to the propellant or a certain brand?

My mom has really bad eczema and asema and most products set her off, but she can use alterna working hair spray.   It is an awesome hair spray and alderman doesn’t use as many  chemicals to cause a reaction.  It is expensive but definitely worth it. I am super sensitive to most cosmetics too and I haven’t had a problem with it either.  they make a travel size for under 10 dollars if you want to try it.

could you put kleenexes over your face (under you bangs) covering your face and ears, and just pull a robe up over your shoulders and neck and have them quickly spray?

is it a respiratory thing or a skin thing?

@Stormchild:  Lush makes a Sea Salt spray that’s amazing. It works great as hairspray. It’s not 100% just sea salt and water, but it’s got way less chemicals than regular hair spray and it smells amazeballs! Try it out, and maybe it will do the trick. : )

ETA: With a bit of research, I’m sure you could probably make your own sea salt spray if the Lush one still bothered you.

What about an all natural hairspray?

I’d definitely try to find a more natural product and test it out before the big day. Lord knows I had TONS of hairspray on. I wouldn’t know how one would do fancy bridal hair without it.

Also- look at this website

http://www.ewg.org/skindeep/

it is pretty much a god sent.  It lists every ingredient in a product and each ones potential hazards (including allergens) and the overall product’s health rating.  Basically the shorter the ingredient list the better.  I have found most listed at a 0 or a 1 are from natural internet only companies.  Going through them is the only way i found makeup I don’t react to (everyday minerals).  Try looking for 0 rated hairsprays.

@Stormchild:  I’m not allergic to hairspray, but I won’t be using it. It will make my hair stringy. Everything makes my hair stringy. So I’ll just be twisting it over into a side ponytail and using a flower or two to cover the elastic. Like this…

Luckily I have more hair than this model (albeit still fine hair) so I’ll have more of a pony tail than she does, but this is the general idea and I don’t see how hairspray would be necessary.

I use bare minerals and just ordered some items from honeybee gardens (water based nail polish)- they hae a mint hairspray! It should be clean. Lush is something I am super allergic to – so I would be wary…
