According to the beauty supply section of About.com, not all hairsprays hold equally well. Since they are all different, many types of hairspray brands are offered in stores.
While the most important factor of hairspray is its holding ability, there are other factors that differentiate hairsprays. Consumers all have their own hair types and their own needs when looking for a hairspray. Many consider the shine, smell, versatility and weight of hairspray. As of 2014, About.com suggests that some of the best drugstore hairspray brands are L'Oreal, Phyto Pro, Bumble and Bumble, Serge Normant and Sebastion Shaper. The "best" qualities of each hairspray are relative to the consumer's needs, but these sprays generally have the best holding ability.
