I've had extremely short hair for a very long time and have just recently been growing it out some - which of course means a whole new beauty regiment & products. When I had short hair I used to buy the big name expensive aerosol hairspray, but as it started getting longer, I wanted to find something that was a little less damaging and a little less like glue - but I have fine hair, so a lot of non-aerosol hairsprays just weigh it down & make it look greasy. I've used Aussie Instant Freeze as my backup for years, so I trust the brand and assumed correctly that this would be exactly what I was looking for! Versatile, doesn't weigh down my hair, & gives me a perfect piece-y, wavy look that holds up (I've never been able to "scrunch" my hair before - but this kept it from going too limp). A little of this on my damp hair before I blow dry works wonders to add volume too!
