A good hair spray is one key item you need to maintain your braids well. I've loyally been using the Fantasia Braid Sheen Spray for years, so I thought I'd come on the blog and talk about it. I do consider this the best hair spray for braids - it's exactly what you need for daily moisture and to keep your braids smelling fresh.
I can't remember when exactly I discovered this hair spray. One day I was just thinking: "I remember this hair spray I used in England that smelled really nice", and then after a few searches on the internet I came across the Fantasia Braid spray - and I recognised it right away.
So I ordered it off Amazon and I've been using it ever since. I think I'm on my fourth bottle now since the first time I ordered. Absolutely love it.
The Fantasia Braid Sheen Spray is a herbal/vitamin spray with a sulfur complex. It conditions, softens and shines natural and synthetic hair.
That's one aspect I really like - that you can use it on natural and synthetic hair. Although my preferred way to use it is on braids, I've also used it to freshen up my synthetic wigs when they were a bit dry. Box braids, twists, crotchet, weave - this spray works for all that good stuff.
These are the unique features of the Fantasia Braid Spray:
I've found that it's the secret to beautiful, soft and shiny braids. So the bottle, of course, claims that it smells good - but let me tell you it smells amazing. How can I describe the scent? ...fresh, sweet, natural. It's not overpowering in any way, but the scent was so remarkably pleasant that I remembered it from having my braids done at a salon a long time ago.
I've used hairsprays before that are quite heavy on the head, and some of them are pretty intense with a kind of nauseating scent that strongly fills up the room. This hair spray isn't though, it truly is ultra-light and non-greasy, giving your hair a great amount of moisture.
I use the spray every day as per the directions. How to use: Apply daily to braids and gently massage into scalp. This spray would be a good solution for anyone who tends to get itchy braids (which is usually caused by a dry scalp). It's extremely refreshing to spray it on your scalp, as well as on your braids. It wakes me up in the morning and is part of my beauty routine.
This spray is super affordable (like $10 USD), and it always comes really quickly when I order it on Amazon, like literally a few days. The spray is 12 oz and it usually lasts me 4-6 months.
Anyway, that was my little review of my favourite hair spray for braids. For my girls who wear box braids, have you tried it before? I absolutely recommend picking up a bottle, you can find it on Amazon here.
