Do you use more hairspray now than you did when you were younger?

I used a LOT of Aquanet back in the big hair 80's! I tapered off a bit in the 90's, but not that I have a shorter 'do, I find I still have to spray a lot to keep it in place. How about you?

  • Nope, I have never really used the stuff. I have used it, but not very often and now I don't use it at all. I do use a bit of mousse though.

  • I don't even us 1/2 as much as I used to. I like to straighten my hair & it doesn't require hairspray. I still do use it from time to time.

  • It depends on the day and where I'm going. When I have it set, the gal who does my hair sprays it pretty heavily. She an older gal from the "old school" where they start with a wet set, etc. Once she's done, my hair's not going anywhere! LOL!

  • In the 80's I used to spray my hair with Final Net until it was hard...loved my big 80's hair. Now, I just do a little spray here and there when I curl.......

  • I use very little hairspray, now - just to tame fly-aways. I was a victim of the 80s, too!! I had a "mullet helmet", then just REALLY HIGH hair!! I used LA Looks hairspray, mostly. It dried so hard! lol

  • I hate hair spray. I can't stand anything spraying around my face. I like styling lotions. Lately I've been using a Got 2B luster lotion and I love that.

  • Never used it. But don't use lotions or gels or mousses or anything, either. Just brush (when I remember to) and go.
