The hair spray comes in three holds, medium, strong, and extra strong. My personal favourite is the strong hold, I use this hairspray daily on myself and my guests behind my chair. This hairspray gives the hold you need without weighing down the hair and also adds shine! I find that this is the perfect hairspray to hold up against humidity and wind! My pro tip for using this hairspray with curling the hair, curl the hair as you would, spray some directly into the hair and let it rest for a bit, then go back in with a boar bristle brush, spray the brush with the strong hold hairspray (wave it around a few times so it’s not wet if you spray too much) and brush through your curls! This is the best way not to get the frizz that often comes with brushing out your curls. Fluff up your hair and you're done! I love this hairspray the most! And the smell is to die for!
