Yes, there is a difference between Over The Top root lift spray and 'hairspray'. Holding the can about 3" away, I spray directly at my roots and use my fingers in a shake-lift motion to lift my hair adding height and volume. Over The Top does not leave my hair or fingers sticky like hairspray, it feels more like it has been treated with a dry shampoo that stiffens.
Like all GG Gatsby products, this root lifting spray smells like a very light citrus floral. UV filters protect colour from fading and it is paraben and phthalate free.
Since I am channeling David Bowie, Over The Top is my new 4.5 star BFF! And my hair even matches the can! Shazam! I won this $12.99 wonder from a GG Gatsby Instagram giveaway and I will absolutely replenish once it is gone. Or they have a sale I can't resist! And since it is available in Target, replenishment just became easier!!
