White Sands Just Came Out with the Ultimate Styling Spray
I’m a big fan of the WHITE SANDS (no not White Rain, eww) hair line when it comes to their styling products and they just came out with a new one. Yippee! It’s called Paraben & Gluten-Free UnderCover Styling Spray and you can file it under a does-it-all kind of spray.
Wait, did it say gluten-free? Seems like the whole world has gone gluten-free crazy these days. And did you ever think the trend would move into the beautysphere? Well it has and this is a first for me. So how does gluten-free play into a hair product? From what I can gather, instead of wheat proteins, they are replaced by silk proteins. Ok, not sure I could tell that just from using it so I guess I have to take their word for it until I can do more research on wheat proteins in hair care products.
Anyway, this one also contains Panthenol aka B5, Aloe Vera Gel, Benzophenone-4, which is for protecting hair color and a surprising ingredient, Chamomile. I guess they threw this one in there for the anti-bacterial properties but I’ve only known it for its calming benefits in skin care products. Interesting!
My take: I love this spray. There’s no flaking and it really helps set the hair. When I’m going for the pin-up look, I like to spray this on my sections of hair before using the curling iron. The heat form the iron really helps this spray get into strands to hold your curl better than without. Scared of doing that? Know that this product is made to be used with heat tools. $21/8.5oz @ whitesandsproducts.com.
