AMW Reviews: L'Oreal Elnett Satin Hair Spray

HAIRSPRAY, I'll probably think about this...



Hairspray was never a necessity in my daily "beauty" living as I hate the fact of putting something stiff on my hair, I don't like it when my hair is constricted.  Being a makeup artist, hairstyles and hairdos are sometimes part of your responsibility, I may not be good with hair but when the need arises, just like my passion for make-up, I want to use the best hair products as possible!

I remembered seeing this really tall, bronzey gold packaging on my wedding day!  The first thing I asked?  "Is it good?" "How much does it cost?"  I don't quite remember the answer but all I remember was me thinking..."Damn!  That's expensive!"

I swear, it overcame humidity, stress, a lot of running here and there ...you're intrigued what hairspray brand?

L'Oreal Elnett Satin Hair Spray
in Strong Hold



L'Oreal Elnett Satin Hairspray says ---

Classic hair spray that gives a flexible hold without leaving residues;  it easily disappears at the stroke of a brush.

Effect: Flexible hold hairspray, no flakes
Hair type: All Hair types
Hold Factor: Strong (4/6)
Size: 500ml
Made in: Spain

AMW says ---

Pros
  • gives a nice hold
  • hair stays shiny, no fake stiff hair look
  • non-sticky at all
  • no flakes after brushing
  • versatile (for upstyles, curls, volumizing)
  • doesn't feel heavy on hair
  • packaging is great, very professional looking and nothing fancy

Cons
  • smells like old hairsprays, think of Aqua Net but this smells a bit better
  • the scent stays :(
  • extremely flammable!  always be careful when using such products
  • quite pricey as compared to other hairsprays
Overall

This is "THE HAIRSPRAY" for a lot of hairstylist!  I've been to a couple of events or shoots and I never fail to see this around.  No wonder stylist all over the world rave about this hairspray!  I am glad my stylist used this on my wedding day!  I never felt a single strand of my hair fell out of place!

I am not sure if locally we have all types of hold available but I believe there's an Extra Strong Hold somewhere in the world :)

Moving forward, I felt comfortable taking this along to gigs!  As this product, is tested by yours truly and it passed!

Tips

from L'Oreal
  • apply to dry or slightly damp hair.  To add more volume, spray on the roots
  • never expose in high temperature
from AMW
  •  if you want your hairstyle to last, do not use conditioner prior to styling
  • use a wide toothed comb to detangle
  • it is best to wash your hair with warm water and clarifying shampoo to prevent product build up
  • try not to use in confined space, avoid spraying on eye area
  • if irritations occur, STOP using product completely!
  • for extreme hairstyles, do treat your hair with hair treatment to regain its strength and shine

Will I repurchase?
Yes!

Where to purchase and how much?

At leading salons (ex. David's, Jesi Mendez, Piandre, etc...) for Php680.00 (approx $14.50)



Here's a stolen shot of my hair!  I'm glad someone took this shot as I don't even know how the back of my head looks like on my wedding day!  My hairstylist used L'Oreal Elnett Satin Hair Spray (yes, I took notice!) at around 7:00am...I was busy chatting with my Godmother I believe! :P


After Church Ceremony, Portrait shots, Long Reception program with a lot of table hopping and greeting of the guests... the photographer took this shot while Keith and I were resting on the "Emperor's" chair!  It was past 12 midnight!  Take a look at my hair!  My hair has always been layered and I've got fringes too, look at how neat it still looks :)


Seriously good stuff!
I love it!
Now, looking back at the wedding photos! 
Time flies so fast...
Keith and I just celebrated our 2nd year Wedding Anniversary :)

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!

    Lisa, I believe this is quite pricey in the US and in Canada, but its darn cheap in Europe! I guess that's how expensive "importing" a product is :) thanks for enjoying the wedding photo and thanks for the greeting :)

    As for hairspray, I'm not so into them. :-/ It's so humid here in SG, that hairstyling products, no matter how good, don't last.

  32. I was searching reviews on Elnett and came across your blog. Great wedding photos. They did a great job on your hair and and I see the hairspray helped to keep it in place. I purchased it and looking forward to using it ASAP. Thanks for sharing!
