For over 50 years L'Oreal's Elnett hairspray has been used by the finest hairdressers across the globe. Its cult following has developed due to its simplistic approach, perfect hold and the ability to brush it through and re-style with no fuss. Apart from adding a few additional strengths to the range, Elnett has never diversified into other areas... Until now. This autumn L'Oreal has added three new products to the Elnett family in the form of Heat Protect Styling Sprays. A totally natural extension of the range, these heat protecting sprays keep the spray at the heart of the product while offering up to three days hold, as well as protection against heat styling. The formulas have up to 230° heat defence and while locking in sleek, straight or wavy hairstyles, or even adding in extra volume. I personally always forget to use heat protection spray (the ultimate sin,) but with the added benefit of style hold there's no reason to forget. Just spritz up to five sprays onto damp hair before styling and you don't have to worry about anything else. I've been using the 'straight' variant for a couple of weeks and it definitely does keep my hair straighter for longer; there's more hold in my style and day-two-wear is easier to manage with a swipe of the straighteners, rather than a complete re-style. The only downside to this is that hair does feel like there's something in it keeping my style in place, and sleekness is achieved at the expense of volume. Hey, a girl can't have everything though! I really like these sprays and everything about them - it's such a great idea and such a lazy girl's product that I'm sure these will be flying off the shelves and develop a cult following of its own.
