I come to you a little embarrassed to admit this, but I am maybe the least girly person ever when it comes to my appearance.
I’ve never worn makeup, and am terrible at applying it (I look like a toddler who got into Mom’s makeup bag every time I try) and have never owned a blowdryer, curling iron or other haircare stuff.
I just got my haircut yesterday, and for the first time in a long time, the stylist seemed to actually ‘get’ that I’m not going to put a bunch of product in my hair, just because she assures me “it’ll only take a minute.”
I am low maintenance, and it won’t only take me a minute, plus my hair is SUPER thin/fine/soft, so whenever I try to put any kind of product in, I end up with greasy clumps and have to wash it and start over.
But, this new stylist was awesome, and realistic about my hair (YAY! Haven’t had that since I left LA 3 1/2 years ago!). She suggested a “dry” hairspray.
Specifically, she recommended this one, which the salon was selling for more than $20 a bottle. Since I don’t even know if I’m realistically going to commit to using it, I hesitate to spend that much money.
Can you 1) recommend a more affordable hairspray that “feels dry, not sticky, when you spray it” (stylist’s words) and 2) tell me if I’m allowed to use hairspray on still damp hair?
(I airdry my hair and leave the house while it’s still damp most of the time, but she said this hairspray should help make my hair feel thicker, cut down on frizzies and flyaways, and keep my sidebangs out of my eyes until they’re grown out!)
