I have dark blonde hair, it nearly looks mousy brown but trust me, it's blonde. I've used high-end hairdprays and I've used extremely cheap drugstore hairspray. They've all made my hair greasy and limp. I got a sample of this spray in a monthly makeup box I get and I've loved it ever since! It's lightened my hair to a nice golden color, it made my hair bouncy, and, it's brought back the shine I lost from using other sprays. It's a definite must have for blondes!
