Review: Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS Hairspray

I picked up the Schwarzkopf Professional Osis hairspray in a goodie bag, and have been putting it to good use over the last few weeks. I am a big fan of the Osis Dust It Mattfying Powder for giving my hair a volume boost and some scruffy texture, so I had high hopes for this hairspray. 

Does it do what it promises?
+ Ultra long lasting hold + extreme control + fast drying + non-sticky + brushes out easily
The first thing I noticed about the spray is that it is just that. It sprays a fine mist over the hair rather than a concentrated burst, this is hugely important for me as I hate styling and spraying hairspray and finding too much product appears and makes the hair damp and crispy. The spray isn't sticky and doesn't leave a tacky feel on the hair which is a great quality in a hairspray.
This hairspray is great for holding curls and loose updo's in place. It has the flexibility to avoid hair looking 'stiff' yet provides the hold you need to prevent a styling disaster. 

Would I get it again?
Yes. Priced at around £9.25 for 300ml, it is a higher end product, however I feel you are paying for the quality in this case.
I love the packaging. The cool, sleek silver tin definitely wouldn't look out of place in a salon. This is 3 on the 'strong scale' and there is another spray up that promises super hold. Definitely one for those who love a high-scaling beehive.

Anything else?
I did find I needed to clean the nozzle every now and again, which wasn't any problem. Just needed a wipe with some warm water on a cloth to help it continue to spray a fine mist.
It also has got a good inoffensive fragrance, which I know a lot of people look for. Using on clients hair I got a few comments about the fact it 'didn't stink like the usual hairspray' Always a good thing!

Have you tried Schwarzkopf Osis hairspray? Or any of the Osis range?

  1. I'd never heard of osis before, but I'm intrigued! I always fall out with hairspray and pretty much have given up on my hair ever staying the way I styled it in the morning - perhaps this could be my saviour?! ;) xo
