What does a finishing spray do for our hair?

With a lightweight and undetectable finish, a finishing spray acts as the final sealant for your hair to ensure the style lasts all day.

It can perfect and lock your hairstyle down by providing long-lasting hold, while adding shine, boosting volume and taming flyaways.

How does finishing spray work?

Finishing sprays coat your hair with its anti-humidity properties to keep the style intact. Additionally, some finishing sprays contain hair-loving ingredients to increase the hair’s shine and health.

How to use a finishing spray for hair?

Once you’re done styling your hair, finish off the look with a light spritz of finishing spray.
