Most Helpful Positive Review Holy Grail Product
I've been using L'Oreal Elnett Hairspray for YEARS. It is absolutely my holy grail hairspray and I refuse to use anything else. Living in Houston, humidity is a massive issue and I adore what this hairspray does. It preserves my hairstyle and keeps frizz at bay without feeling heavy or crunchy. If it can stand up to the Houston humidity, it can stand up to anything!

I had to check the can to make sure I had the correct product before I wrote this review. There are so many positive reviews says how great this is that I thought I might have been sent a different hairspray. I have a very simple style. It is basically just side parted with a little bit of body added via curling iron. The first time I used this, it looked like I didn't even bother to do my hair 20 minutes later. I couldn't even feel any product in my hair. So I added more next time, and then even more, and more still. Same problem, only then my hair started to look dirty from so much hair spray. I have tried practically every brand of hair spray Ulta carries and haven't had this problem to this severity. Some just didn't hold my style, but this takes things to a new level. It actually disappears and leaves my hair looking flatter. While it says that this is unscented, there is definitely a scent to it and it can overpower a small bathroom. The part where you push to spray feels like it is going to break at any second and just feels cheap and awkward to me. The only plus is that the mist is very fine.

This may not have a "scent", but it is NOT unscented...there is added fragrance right on the ingredients list.

Easy to brush your hair with this hairspray in it
Can't get away from this stuff!!
Jess from Wichita Falls
I love that it has no scent, you get air of product for the price point, your hair doesn't feel hard or sticky and you can easily comb it out! LOVE is an understatement.

I love this hairspray! (Me and millions of other people!) It is not sticky or stiff, and the unscented is really scentless. The only hairspray I ever use.
Not Sure I Would Buy Again

Fragrance was light but I need a stronger hold in my fine hair.
Only one for me

I have been using this hairspray for several years and I love it.
I love this product and would definitely purchase it again.

Use it to achieve a controlled but natural look
Buy this all the time
CJ from Scottsdale AZ
I've tried a lot of hair sprays and this one just seems to work for my fine, dry,color treated hair. It doesn't give the helmet head look and you can run fingers through you hair but still leaves some memory hold. If you like a lightweight, natural hold, this is great. I buy the fragrance free one which does have a little scent of something but the regular scent is just too overwhelming for me. I am sensitive to strong fragrance in products. I buy this over and over again.
Love this Product!
Lee from Owasso, Oklahoma
This is a hidden gem. This products is fast holding but can be brushed out easily. It doesn't flake or build up and dries to a nice shine. I've tried more expensive alternatives but I always come back to this particular hairspray. They have several different options in this line so you have options for different types of hair or hold.
This is a staple for me. I buy it over and over again.

Use to keep my hair in place. Brushes out easily.
My Go-To Spray
pattylynn22 from Long Beach, CA
Love this spray. Holds my hair, but it doesn't LOOK like I've used hairspray (i.e. crunchy, stiff, unnatural). Been using about 5 years and don't plan on changing anytime soon!!!
Basia from Tennessee
This is a very good hairspray. Has a strong hold but easily brushable . I always use an unscented one because the other ones have a very strong smell which give me migraines. Sometimes I spray it lightly on my hair right before curling it so the curl stays longer. Just make sure it dries before you curl it to avoid crusty hair.
Not worth the rating it has
Lena from FL
I bought this a few months ago, in search of a better spray (previously used Big Sexy Hair). I don't know if this one is worse or the same. While it does help somewhat in holding in my curls compared to when I use nothing at all, it doesn't hold it in for as long as I would like it (7-8 hour day). At best it'll last me a few hours, even just sitting around or walking, then my hair will go flat with some sort of odd wavy hair but definitely not curls. You should definitely be careful about how much you spray or else your hair will get crunchy. It still has a sort of scent to it even though it claims to be unscented. I don't know if the original is any better/worse but I'm not sure if I'm willing to spend money on this brand again. This hairspray did not give any sort of volume to my hair at all either. I do like the fact that it doesn't seem too sticky, unlike some other hairsprays I've used before, but other than that, there's not much else that I like about it.
Perfect for me!
Sheriann60 from Oklahoma
I am so sensitive to the smell of hairspray. In fact, I haven't used it in about 4 years because of this. My hair has grown the the length where I need the frizz control or hold, so I've been trying various brands. This is my favorite, and the only one I was able to apply without gagging from the smell.
They have changed the ingredients in this hair spray

They have changed the ingredients in this hairspray, verified by a call to L'Oreal Customer Service.
I had used it for years and new product gives me a rash.
Holds, doesn't move
UltaLover from NJ
I used this hairspray for slick hair styles, and it works well. So well, that if Iay down on it without washing my hair it feels like my hair is pulled from the root as I move around on my head. Also, have to wash it really well, lots of shampoo.
But, holds really really well. Even holds my stubborn baby hairs down in the humidity.
I only gave it 4 stars because of the hair pulling thing, but really I should just wash my hair after wearing a slicked back hairstyle anyway.
The best ever
Sparkly from Phoenix AZ
Tried all kinds of expensive & less expensive hairsprays this is the best for humidity and the price is right!
Ride or Die
Nikkiglamlifestyle from Indianapolis, IN
This is my favorite hairspray and has been for 7 years. I love the unscented one as the original has a very particular smell that I do not find pleasant, so the unscented is perfect for me. It brushes out without leaving residue, doesn't flake, doesn't dull, lasts forever! It is a classic! They recently re-packaged and I couldn't find the unscented, so I am happy it is back in stock!
My Holy Grail Hairspray
Z from Maine
This is the best. Please make it forever - don't disappear like all my favorites! I love that it comes in unscented and does exactly what I need. I have fine, curly hair and largely follow the curly girl method. This is the only spray that keeps a great hold with almost no buildup. There is no crunchiness or flakiness. True wizardry.
trendymom2410 from Richmond, Texas
I bought this after reading an article that recommended this product to use to set your hair for styling. I spray this on my hair when I use my waver and have also have used it when I'm straightening my hair. Works great helps keep the hold.
Hairspray for me from Mahwah, NJ
I use this as a finishing spray after setting with a lighter hairspray. You can brush right through this later in the same day or nex day.
This is the absolute BEST hairspray!
Jules from Mission Viejo , CA
I use this everyday. It holds really well yet not stiff.
KK from Chicago, IL
