That’s Your Hair Spray Trying to Teach You Some Tricks

Baby fine hair and cowlicks can be a real pain. Keep your toothbrush handy. Spray it with a strong hair spray. Use this to comb down those annoying hairs. This works for eyebrows, too.

Hair spray, if not used properly, can cause hair to look dull and lifeless.

Always spray in the direction of the hair style, NEVER against.


Spraying against will disrupt the cuticle, taking away all shine and exposing the cortex to the drying agent in the spray.

Ever have your hairstyle fall out of place? To combat that, spray in place and count to five before letting go. This simple step works better than over spraying which builds up.

Less spray is more! Don’t forget to ALWAYS spray in the direction of the hair.

You have used too much spray

To help remove any buildup, make a mixture of baking soda and water and apply. To get a clean fresh feel, mix apple cider vinegar with water to rinse out the baking soda.

Hair spray comes out in a fine mist for a reason.

Always make sure that the nozzle is not clogged and gummed up from the spray. A clogged nozzle will prevent the spray from producing that fine mist.

It’s important to hold the spray 12” away from your hair.

This allows the mist to work and spread out as it is designed to do.

Psst… Give these hints a try. Practice makes perfect.
