Q & As

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Geat hairspray This is one of the few hairsprays which does not cause an allergic reaction on my chest. Others I have found make me wheezy and I have to hold my breath. I also find that it does not dry the hair like a lot of them do. It holds quite well and I come back to it time after time. It is a little pricey but it is the only one that agrees with my hair. 28 July 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Tried and tested Having somewhat flyaway hair, I've found controlling it somewhat difficult. Now that I have decided to grow out the layers it has become even more of a challenge. For me, Aveda Control Force Firm Hold Hair Spray is the best of the bunch. A good squirt won't last me all day, but even when the wind gets up a little, it manages to keep my hair more or less in shape. One less thing to worry about! 07 April 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by My 'couldn't be without' product This is a brilliant hairspray which lasts ages so the price tag is actually very reasonable. As with other Aveda products, it avoids many of the 'nasty' chemicals found in most hairsprays. The hold is excellent, even in high winds, but it brushes out very easily. 27 January 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Hair improvement great hold, great product but had trouble with the spray mechanism was very intermittent at first. seems now to have righted itself, not what you expect from these expensive products. 19 June 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very good Good hairspray, firm hold yet light. Gives a good fine spray & doesn't leave hair sticky as some brands do 30 January 2012
