    Question Alcohol free Hairspray???

    Hello All...
    Just wondering if anyone has ever come across an alcohol free hair spray..I believe hair spray irritates my rosacea..so I have been researching for an alcohol free hair spray. Does it exist? Has anyone ever heard of it?
    I know the simple solution would be to stop using hair spray..but I have fine hair..and it does help to use it for styling..a damned if I do, damned if I don't struggle..
    Thanks so much

    Susan

    Hello Susan,

    I could have written the above!

    I also have very fine hair & although I did find an alchol-free hairspray it was in a pump

    action bottle and spat out the product causing my rosacea just as much of a problem!

    I use Pantene full volume & body and often us a protective face shield & that helps a

    lot.

    I use suncoat hairspray. I buy the large one which is 210 ml as its much better value than the 60ml one. Its made from sugar derivatives.

    The only problem is the price. Its a bit heavier than usual hairspray, so you need to put on 2 light coats rather than just one for a good hold. It also takes longer to dry than standard hairspray, allow 10-15 mins for it to fully harden. http://www.gentlebodycare.co.uk/sunc...free-c185.html

    Hi,
    As its made from sugar, does it dry sticky?

    No once it's dry, it goes hard like normal hairspray

    Hi,
    I decided to give the suncoat a try. Unfortunately each spray mist droplet dries shiny so when the light catches the droplets it looks like I've got glitter in my hair! Not very manly lol.

    Are there any other alcohol and fragrance-free hairsprays out there that are not sugar-based?

    Hi. I don't use hair products, but would it be possible to cover your face with a washcloth while spraying? I know you can't see, but you could position the hairspray canister the correct distance apart and just kinda... spray around?

    Or does the smell affect your rosacea as well?
    Current skincare regime for rosacea subtypes I, II and IV started March, 2012:

    *Strict diet. No dairy, wheat, sugar, nuts/seeds, legumes. Only meat, 'safe starches', and low-phenol starchy/unstarchy fruits and veggies and water with ghee, lard and duck fat as cooking aids and sources of fat. Also avoiding food intolerances.
    Supplementing with raw food multivitamin, liquid zinc sulfate with copper, epsom salt baths (magnesium sulfate), calcium and vitamin C. Lots of water!

    Hi Christine,
    I'm currently using a fragrance free hairspray but it has alcohol in it. I've started experimenting with a piece of A4 paper with a small spy hole cut out lol. Sound ridiculous but it does prevent the stuff getting on my face.
