Here’s a roundup of my favorite hairsprays! Chances are you won’t find many cruelty-free options at the drugstore, so I really hope this post will help some ladies (and gentlemen) make the switch! Share your own in the comments!
Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray ($22) is a recent discovery (and revelation) of mine! If you hate the sticky feeling and the straw-like stiffness some hairsprays leave, definitely give this one a try. It’s light, smells amazing, and leaves your hair more moisturized while still providing decent hold. This is my go-to. I would say it works for pretty much ALL hair types, from dry to fine to frizzy to oily.
EDIT: Moroccanoil started selling to mainland China since this article was published and is NOT cruelty-free.
2. Oribe Texturizing Hair Spray ($44) is a volumizing hair spray with a cult status. Not gonna lie, it’s definitely pricey, but for those with a big hair budget, this is a great cruelty-free buy.
3. Giovanni L.A. Hold Hair Spritz ($16 for 3) is a non-aerosol hair spray for the ladies that prefer natural products. Even though it has mostly natural ingredients, it still holds your hair in place just as well as all the aerosol sprays I’ve tried.
4. Paul Mitchell Wild Ginger Finishing Spray ($24) is my holy grail hairspray. I have fine hair, and this one helps to hold my volume in place without weighing down my hair and lasts really well throughout the day no matter the weather. It’s also great with frizzies and won’t leave your hair sticky and crunchy.
