I am very pleased with this Vegan hairspray. Not only does it not have an over powering smell, but it also does not contain alcohol. My hair had been getting dry from using alcohol-based products. It is very easy to work with as well. Another plus for me is the fact that it is a pump rather than aerosol. Just my opinion but I prefer not breathing in aerosols. Give this product a try. I'm sure you will like it.
