Imagine this: I spend a good two hours painstakingly putting my damp hair into lots and lots of pin curls, wait at least 12 hours for them to properly set, then take ages taking every single pin out of my hair. I brush out the set, and it looks amazing- I could have come straight out of a Golden Era film. Then I spray the finished hair style with hairspray so that it won't all fall apart. But shock, horror: the hairspray ruined the entire set! It made my hair look stringy and it stuck together. It didn't look soft and curly at all- my hair felt hard. Help! Does anybody else have this problem or is it just me? Is the hairspray the problem or is it the hair? What did women in the golden era do? Also, I tried not spraying my hair after another pin curl set and didn't stay as long as it usually does when I spray it, but at least it looked better. Ugh.... I need advice!
