Last year I blogged about Salon Selectives Hair Spray… and the fact that I think it’s the most kick ass hair product ever invented. At the time, I was afraid to come out of the closet as a “cheapie drugstore brand” connoisseur, but since then, honestly can’t believe the amount of comrades that have decided to declare themselves a fan. Without a word of lie, I receive an e-mail at least once per week of someone else who is looking for the coveted brand and wants to swap hair tips.
So I thought it would be appropriate to a) re-post my review, and b) let you know that even though mass retailers no longer sell the product, you can still purchase it online from Well.ca (which offers FREE shipping on every order within Canada)! Enjoy!
Salon Selectives Sit Still and Stay Put Aerosol Hairspray
Yes, you read correctly. I’m blogging about Salon Selectives – a product uncere-moniously banished to the second-last shelf in drugstores. A product so consistently shunned in favour of cooler, more expensive brands. A product that smells (reeks?) of granny smith apples. I am blogging about Salon Selectives Hairspray and I am absolutely, 100%, positively recommending it.
Why? Because it’s a kick ass hairspray, that’s why. I’ve been using it for – oh gosh am I really admitting this? – THIRTEEN years. And anyone who knows me will tell you I’ve had kick ass hair for the last thirteen years. In fact, I’m so loyal to this brand, I brought it along on my wedding day and asked the stylist to use it instead of her $36.00 designer spray. Now that’s trust!
Quite simply, the hairspray:
1. Lasts all day long with just a light application
2. Provides flexible, movable hold (never stiff or sticky)
3. Washes out completely leaving no residue behind
4. Retails for under $4!!!
Still not convinced? While searching for an image of the hairspray, I came across some reviews on Glow.ca, where I noticed it was named Glow Magazine Readers’ Choice 2006 Hairspray Winner. That’s a pretty amazing feat, considering the market is saturated with hair styling products, all seemingly a lot trendier than good ol’ SS.
And since I truly thought I was the last person on the planet still using this stuff, what I want to know is: Where are the rest of those SS groupies with apple-scented hair? Let’s create a Facebook group!
You can still find the hairspray, reasonably priced at just $3.99, at Well.ca, Canada’s online drug store. Stay Put Hairspray. Get in Shape Mousse. Under Firm Control Sculpting Gel. All available for immediate sale. Fantabulous! I talked to friends and discovered that Well.ca also has a bunch of other products that you may not be able to find at your local store, such as specialty creams and discontinued makeup shades. I like this line from their “About Us”: What makes us different? We aim to be the kindest, most friendly company you’ve ever shopped at.
