Some hairsprays are worse than others. What kind of spray are you using? What are the ingredients? How often are you using it? Do you comb through it? (eek)
I've even heard of some kind of nifty natural hairspray but can't remember any names or ingredients. Hopefully someone will come along and post that knows of it.

How about using aloe vera gel (the clear kind) for hold instead of hair spray? It's good for your hair, and while it may not hold as well as hairspray it's still something. Here's an article that shows how to make a natural hairspray, I haven't tried it, so I can't say how good it is. It may be a nice alternative though. http://frugalliving.about.com/od/beautyhealthcare/ht/Hair_Spray.htm

You can also use orange juice (diluted?) as hairspray, if you don't mind a little stickyness :)

Im a sucker for hairspray, but after a while it makes your hair very dull and brittle. If you want beautiful long hair, my advice would be to steer clear.
I have the sort of hair that need some sort of hold in it to be able to stay in an sleek braid or updo (otherwise i have a halo of baby hairs and coarse hairs poking out), and i recently discovered this product

It is AWESOME! Work as well, if not better, then normal hairspray, a tad sticky at first, but brushes straight out.

I use some of this if i am going to be doing a braid or something on damp hair before styling, gives great hold.

I am aware of the damagge hair spray doees to your hair, but I've tried EVERYTHING else out there. Hairpray is the only thing that will make my long hair look nice. Thanks anyways!

Yes, I do comb it through....only after my hair is dry on the days I wash it tho. (twice a week)

Thanks, but I've tried aloe before.

Yeah, I knew about this, and even tried it...horrible results =P

Hmmm I may try that. I have layers that I'm trying to grow out, and millions of halo hairs, and just hair that are different lengths that like to 'fly away.'

In the past, when I used "too much" hairspray, my hair turned out shiny for the first little while, but then began to attract dust and lint, making it extremely dull. This goes away after washing, though :)

Buildup, for me, doesn't look like anything in particular - it just makes my hair less shiny, but doesn't change the colour. I think it's easier (for me at least, I have dark blonde/light brown hair) to feel buildup than to see it.
