Pick Of The Week: L’Oreal Elnett

This week’s Pick Of The Week comes courtesy of my friend John, who swears by L’Oreal’s Elnett volumizing hairspray. I’m not too well-versed in hairspray myself, but he’s a designer who frequently has to style his models, and he also has really nice hair, so I trust his judgment. “It fucking keeps your hair in place without making you feel sticky,” he just told me via GChat. “Wow, I have never sounded so gay.”

“But John!” I insisted. “Isn’t hairspray sort of gross and ’80s? I tend to hate the way it makes my hair feel.” “I know, but this isn’t normal hairspray,” he replied. “It’s a miracle. It just, like, takes all the crazy out of the hair and keeps it just floating there all awesome and pretty.”

“And how do you, yourself, use said hairspray?”

“I dry my hair totally, spray loosely around the head, move the hair aorund a bit so it doesn’t look stiff, and VOILA! Your hair stays up and in place and shit.”

So there you have it. If it’s volumizing hairspray you crave, get this stuff. John and all of his fancy friends like it, and that’s good enough for me.

    The day I discovered the magic that is Elnett is the day my life changed forever. Yes, I know it’s expensive for a drug store product, but one can lasts a long time and it will change the way you do your hair.

    Although the product does indeed work amzingly well, it unfortunately smells like a thousand old ladies. It is so overpoweringly strong that I had to take a shower immediately, Despite having just shwoered, dressed, made up and did my hair to go out. It was that bad. I just couldn’t stand the smell.

    I love this hairspray!!

    The smell does smell grandma-ish, but it’s never stuck around long that I can tell.

    Best hairspray out there.

    Smell goes away about a half hour after spraying it. Or you get used to it, but either way, I’ve never had any complaints.
