The last time my brother-in-law went to France on an official trip, my sister asked him to look for some hair product that would give her hair a glossy effect. Not the one willing to understand the nitty gritties of hair products, he just went and picked up this hair spray from Byphasse. It turned out that my sister was least interested in a hair spray and she gave it to me and I lapped it up. I use this hair spray sparingly myself and here’s the review of the first-ever hair spray that I ever used.

Hold the spray 30 centimeters from the hair. Apply the spray with short bursts of pressure at brief intervals. Don’t apply the product near or on your eyes or on irritated skin.
MY TAKE ON BYPHASSE LAQUE CHEVEUX HAIR SPRAY FIXATION HAIR FORTE:
This is a huge 400 mL bottle. It is quite heavy and not easy to carry around. This is an aerosol hair spray with nozzle that sprays a fine mist which first gives out alcoholic scent, but then settles as a mild, subtle smelling pleasant fragrance. This is an Ultra Strong Fixation Extra Forte hair spray, so I thought it would be sticky and weigh down on the hair, but no, this doesn’t feel sticky on hair, gives the most natural hold, and does not feel heavy on the hair. I do not do elaborate hairstyles. I just leave my hair open sometimes after curling it at the ends. After I spray it on the curls that I have made with my styler, it holds in the curls even while allowing movement of the hair. That’s a fantastic quality in a hair spray because there’s one spray that was used on my hair on my wedding day that was so annoyingly sticky. After using this hair spray, hair does not look stiff, is soft to touch, and I can comb through it without any resistance. Since this is a huge hair spray bottle, it lasts for a really long time. After using it for around 6 months, my hair spray still weighs as heavy as before. Since this is Ultra Strong, I am sure it will work well with elaborate hair styles too. Since this spray comes in an aerosol can, it is easier to give overall coverage after the hair style is set.
Some hair sprays do come with UV protection, but this does not have any such protection. Since Byphasse hair spray is not heavy or sticky on hair, it will work well in humid conditions and summers.
Whatever I do, my hair still looks like a bird’s nest . 🙁
