Living Proof Style Lab Control Hair Spray Review

I do not use a lot of styling products on my hair because the long list of esoteric chemicals freaks me out and since I inherited the tendency of premature greying of hair, I am skeptic about what products go into my hair. But obviously, I cannot be completely ignorant about the needs of my hair and have to use a good serum and a setting spray to fix my hair and make it more presentable when I head out.

My Experience with Living Proof Style Lab Control Hair Spray:

I bought this product because it has good reviews and most of the salons that I have been to carry this brand’s products and claim that they are good, less damaging to the hair, and perform well. I also do not believe in dowsing my hair with tons of products, so I was also on the lookout for a multitasking product – the kind which can act as a hairstyling spray, hair control spray and even a heat protectant. This product claims to do all of that, so I decided to go ahead and invest in it.

The product comes in two sizes – 7.5oz and 3oz. The product comes in an aluminium bottle with a spray mechanism (the kind which is common for hair spray bottles). The finish of the bottle is matte black and it gives the packaging a very classy and elegant finish (also a ruse to lure consumers). The other side of the bottle has a long list of ingredients, which is a big concern for me, but then, no matter how expensive a hair spray, it invariably has a long list of ingredients.

I use it to fix flyaways and if I ever make a different hairdo, I spray it with the hair spray to keep it intact and mess free. I found that this spray does help control to control my hair well; however, it’s hold is not as strong as the other strong hold hair sprays in the market, such as the L’Oreal one. It has a very subtle fragrance which vanishes soon after application. It also does not leave behind any flaky white residue as some other hair sprays do. It does not impart any oily or greasy look to hair. It claims to work as a heat protectant as well, but I have been skeptical about that claim and not sure about its potency in this regard.
