*Before we jump into today's review, I have to apologize about the lack of updates over the last week. As many of you know, fall trimester started last weekend making my weeks quite full again. But, I've lined up some great posts for this week. The review today is brought to you by the ever-fabulous Nicolle Westlund. So, read on and enjoy!*
Last time we chatted, I told you that the Onesta Smooth & Shine Thermal Straightening Crème was literally the best hair product I’ve ever used. At the risk of establishing myself as prone to hyperbole, I’m going to add that the Onesta Create “Finish” Aerosol is the best hairspray I’ve ever used.
I’ve used hairspray my entire life. As a former competitive gymnast and dancer, hairspray was my best friend. Needless to say, I probably abused it (and gave myself a DIY face lift with every tightly bound high ponytail).
But my dancing days made me a hairspray connoisseur. There wasn’t a drugstore or salon brand I hadn’t sampled, from aerosol to spray, from wet to dry, from “soft hold” to “extra firm.”
I couldn’t find one that worked when I wanted to wear my hair in loose curls AND when I wanted to pull it back for an updo. Most were too wet, turned crunchy or flaked off like dandruff (gross).
I wanted an aerosol can (which equals a more even application) and buildable hold without the stickiness and wetness of most hairsprays.
Then I stumbled across Onesta’s Create. It has a dry hold, so you don’t feel like you spent time blow-drying your hair for nothing, and it truly has buildable hold. A light spray gives perfect all-day hold to my loose, curling-iron waves. A heavier application keeps my updo in place for a night of wedding-reception dancing, sweaty forehead included.
But the picture-perfect results are just a bonus to the fact that it has natural ingredients, including 100 percent natural fragrance. Most hairsprays (and body washes, body lotions, face washes, shampoos, conditioners and styling products) have synthetic fragrance comprised of dangerous chemicals, including formaldehyde. With an aerosol can, the fear can be that you’re inhaling tiny particles of the product as you try to style your coif. Onesta’s Create eliminates that fear – and kills the competition when it comes to performance.
The green tea (protects against sun damage and UVA+UVB rays), milk thistle (protects against photo damage) and rhatany root (helps absorb moisture) in Create also make your hair healthier in the process. You can’t ask for much more than that.
Have you tried Create? What do you love about it?
