Today, I am reviewing a hairstyling product. This is a hair spray from Enliven. I have never used a hair spray before except for when I got my hair done at salon. I personally don’t like the sticky hair look that hair gels give and also not that crunchy look that hair sprays give. So, I never thought of trying any such product until now.
229 INR for 300 ml, bought online.
Directions For Use:
Shake before use. Hold can 30 cm from hair and spray evenly. Avoid contact with eyes.
My Experience with Enliven Ultra Hold Hair Spray:
I picked this hair spray just because it is very cost effective. As this is my first time with such a product, I did not want to invest much. The name says that it’s an ultra hold spray, but actually it is not. It is a light spray that will just set your hair naturally. Your hair will not feel heavy with this. The hair does not feel sticky or crunchy if it is applied in the right amount from recommended distance.
I have used this to manage my fly away hair, back combing hair to make pouf, and also for setting the pouf. It doesn’t impart any shine though. It just provides a mild hold. If you comb your hair after that, then all effect will be gone. It stays well for 2-3 hours and then the hair starts to loosen up a bit. After just one day, I felt that my hair was a bit heavy, so washing hair is a must the very next day.
Also, it has a very nauseating fragrance. It stays for a while and then goes away, but I don’t like the smell even if it stays for a short time.
For application, I shake the bottle and hold it a bit away, on top of my forehead. I put one hand to shade my eyes to avoid any spray getting on my face and eyes. I don’t use this on regular basis as I feel it has too much of chemicals. All in all, this product is okay if you want to try a mild spray. This is not for you if you want a strong salon style hold that stays for a long time.
Let’s summarize the pros and cons:
Pros of Enliven Ultra Hold Hair Spray:
- No stickiness or crunchiness.
- Very cost effective, one bottle will last for a long time.
- Easily available online.
- Good for beginners if you want to try some economic hair spray.
- Does not irritate skin.
Cons of Enliven Ultra Hold Hair Spray:
- Weird smell.
- Average hold and staying power.
- Does not impart any shine to hair.
I will not buy this again as I will look for some better formula that gives shine and smoothness to the hair.
