There are hairsprays, and then, well, there are hairsprays. You know what we mean. Some spray a gentle mist. Others blast you with a frozen lacquer. And some don't even keep your bangs still.
We've all heard of L'Oreal's Elnett. But we just couldn't get our desperate hands on this phenomenal hairspray. Only the hair gods like Garren could get their fingers on the uber gold can, and just in meager quantities.
But now, it's 2008, and Elnett has finally arrived here. And Target dept. stores are selling the 11 oz. cans for $14.99. Available in Elnett Stronghold Hairspray or Elnett Extra Stronghold Hairspray.
We saw our friend Nina a couple of weeks ago. Not only did her hair look great, but she smelled nice, too. "What cologne are you wearing," we asked her.
Nina laughed. "It must be the Elnett hairspray I just bought. I love it. And it's now available at Target."
We love the smell of Elnett hairspray. And yet, some women have been complaining about the odor. That it's 'old lady,' or 'too strong.' And others are begging the good folks at L'Oreal, to develop an unscented Elnett.
What's so amazing about Elnett???
It's always been big in Europe, and many British women adore it. Garren, the famous New York City hairstylist claims the hairspray offers "the finest mist." And that Elnett isn't sticky or dull. It gives hair memory and great hold, and you can brush through it, and it always bounces back with volume.
Garren used to hoard the few small cans of Elnett he would get from his European pals, and he would use them on photo shoots.
The only minor thing that has arrived along with this so called phenomenal hairspray to the American market, is a slight altering of the original Elnett formula. See, our U.S. Elnett has a more eco-friendly hydrofluorocarbon propellant. European Elnett is allowed to have higher levels of VOCs or volatile organic compounds.
Too scientific for our minds. All we know, is that L'Oreal's Elnett has finally reached our shores so women everywhere can have big, glossy, movable hair. And we can now find it in department stores like Target.
