Good hairspray for backcombing hair?


Hi everyone!

I have really thick hair and enough of it for at least two people. Its also fairly long and can fall flat by the second day so I like to back comb it a little bit to get some volume at my crown. The only problem is that I can't find a good hair spray to maintain that volume! Can anyone recommend a good strong hold hairspray?
Please keep in mind that I'm on a students budget!

Thanks for the help!

I really like Tresemme hair spray. It has a very strong hold and it's also one of the best priced lines out there. If you put too much, you risk your hair feeling crunchy

Sexy Hair and Garnier

Since I also have thick, heavy hair, and I went through so many different hairsprays, my favorite are Big Sexy Hair Spray and Play Volumizing hairspray and Garnier Fructis full control hairspray. Great for any hairstyle, esp for backcombing.

Got some!

Thanks so much for the help! I just picked up the Tresemme hair spray and I'm excited to try it. Btw, Wal Mart is having a sale on all Tresemme hair products, they're all $4!

L'Oreal's cult product, Elnett, for sure! It is a litlte on the pricey side (approx. $15), but it holds your hair so well without making it stiff. AND you can run a brush or comb through your hair after spraying the stuff on without any flakes. REALLY!

I was a little doubtful at first because I thought all hairsprays were the same, but after reading several rave reviews, I finally gave in. Also read somewhere that it's every runway hairstylist's must have during Fashion week.

I love any aresol by Tresemme or you could try the new hairspray in the Rockin' it line by Got2Be, I've been testing it and it's had great hold.

Another suggestion...

I am in love with the Schwarzkopf Professional got2be Powder`ful powder - it gives you`re roots instant lift and with a little backcombing your style stays pumped up for the whole day - and into the next!
