This week’s pick is another fave I discovered at good ol’ Targaaaaaaay (Target). While browsing through the hair care aisle, a tall, gold, old school looking bottle caught my eye. I stopped to check it out, and upon closer inspection I realized it was L’Oreal’s Elnett, the keeper of elegant European hairstyles, which has not been available in the U.S. until recently, as L’Oreal has introduced this more ozone friendly American version in order be in accordance with the U.S. government’s environmental laws.
I like to think of Elnett as the chic version of Aqua Net. The hairspray’s packaging boldly states, “Disappears at the Stoke of a Brush”, which is no lie. Elnett gives your hair a very touchable hold, similar to Bumble and Bumble’s Does it All Hairspray (one of my classic faves), but delivers just a tad bit more hold (sort of like insurance, which ALWAYS gives me more confidence), while also protecting it from humidity, and infusing it with body and volume, a very European quality, and therefore slightly more glamorous than its American contemporaries. The color-treated hair formula contains a UV filter to protect hair from sun damage and fading, which is GREAT FOR ANYONE WITH CHEMICALLY TREATED HAIR, and/or for those that spend a lot of time outdoors.
TIP: I like Elnett in particular because it is such a very versatile hairspray. Spray and comb through curled hair for soft, moveable waves, use it to create body when back combing, or spray directly to set and protect simple updos. Voilà. You Look Mah-velous Daaaaah-ling!!
