I know you guys have probably seen "The Gold Can" of hair spray sometime in your life if not all the time, so we all know it's called the Freeze It from Mega Freeze.
I can remember a time way back in the 1980's when hairspray was the thing to use to keep your hair in place. I can also remember going to the hair salon and man, did they love that stuff! I would have hair so darn stiff it would take me several washings to get all that hair spray out of my head! Thank goodness, we have all calmed down a bit and now use it like it's suppose to be used.
This is the can of Freeze It that I was sent to review and I have to tell you that I love the way that it has evolved and has become a much softer hair spray but still controls what it needs to. This one has what they call Optical Brighteners in it. And just what does this do?
Take a look:
Optical Brighteners™ intensify highlights and increase light reflection, improving and enhancing all types of permanent and natural hair color. It also is humidity resistant and has UV filters that shield hair from the sun and environment.
I love that it just does it job and holds my hair in place but without all the sticky mess and stiff hair. I imagine though, if I sprayed enough of any kind of hair spray, I could still get that feeling but believe you me, I don't intend to ever do that again!
I can tell you one horror story about when I was in the 7th grade and my aunt fixed my hair for a church choir get together and she sprayed so much stuff in my hair along with all that teasing that we never could get it out of my hair. I ended up having to have my hair cut off really short. I had hair down way past my shoulders then and it had to be cut way above my shoulders by the time we were done. I will never forget that. Thankfully, hairdressers don't do that anymore!
Some other key benefits of Freeze It:
**Extreme Freeze Hold
**Enriched with Vitamin B5
**Optical Brighteners increase shine
This is how my hair looks when I lightly use the Freeze It hair spray. I can still feel the softness in my hair but still have manageable hair. Now, if I really wanted to have the maximum effect, yes, I could spray a lot more but because my hair is so thick anyway, I don't really need a lot of hair spray.
The Freeze It brand has a whole line of products to choose from to meet each person's individual needs. Gosh, they now have gels, mousse, glitter spray, surf spray, shine drops, miracle mist and the list goes on.
Here is the tip that I used for my shoulder length hair:
A soft, layered style for a romantic look.Oh, yes, this Extreme Hold spray that I was sent, will definitely take care of the frizzies! Which is one of my main problems with my hair but the Freeze It hair spray with Optical Brighteners really helped tame them along with making my hair shine and seem more healthy. I hope that you can see that in the picture above.
STEP 1: Begin styling by spritzing a heat-protecting product such as our 12-in-1 Leave-In Treatment before blow drying. This will protect against damage from heat styling and the most unruly of frizzies leading to a smooth finish.
STEP 2: Blow hair out in sections using a boar bristle brush.
STEP 3: Using a two-inch curling iron, curl the ends of your hair. Finish off the look with Mega Freeze Hair Spray for ultimate long-lasting hold and shine.
A lot of well known movie stars use these products also. Take a look at the magazine cover below.
