Review: Alberto Weather Resistant Hairspray Mega Hold Finish

Price: around $6 for 213 g

The claims:

  • Resists humidity for long lasting mega hold
  • Contains a UV filter to help protect against environmental damage

Shake can well before use. Hold can 20cm away from your hair and spray all over, for a long lasting mega hold finish. Avoid contact with eyes. 


  • super long lasting hold
  • dries really fast
  • non sticky or flaky
  • easily brushed out
  • resists humidity
  • not tested on animals

  • hair feels dry to the touch when hairspray is on

What I think:
One word: Wow! Seriously, I was amazed at the results of this product. As a picture is worth a thousand word, I'll let you see for yourself:

First day - morning
I simply curled my hair with a flat iron.

And a closer view of the curls just so you can see the texture better:

 First day - evening

First day - after a shower, to see if it was really humidity resistant (hair were loosely tied in a bun on top of my head)

My hair was still curly even after a shower!

Second day - morning

 Seconda day - evening (I brushed the hairspray out to see if it was easily brushed out)

  My hair was still wavy after I brushed the hairspray out!

I still can't believe this hairspray lasted me two complete days without making my hair greasy, sticky or flaky.

This hairspray really delivers super long lasting mega hold as I didn't even have to touch up my hair the second day. It was still nicely curly, something that never happens with my hair! The curls are always disappeared by the end of the day (and even before that), no matter how many products I use to prevent this.

When freshly applied, the hairspray makes my hair feels wet and stiff, but it's only a matter of minutes before it penetrates the hair.

My only complain (which is no big deal for me) is that my hair feels dry to the touch when I use this hairspray. However, I don't think it looks dry.

  10. wow ,, i need this ,, its super humid all the time here =/
    i wonder if my bangs or at least the baby hair will stay in place =S ..
    need to look for this ,, thx gaby for the awesome review <3

  11. Wow this hairspray really holds up!
    But when you combed it out, did it flake off at all - like you know how some hairsprays make it look like you have dandruff in your hair if you start to comb it through after it dries?
    And did you hair feel stiff to touch? Like no movement? I find that's the biggest problem with heavy duty hairspray for me so I always buy lightest hold hairspray
