So this is Simantini, writing for Nivedita once again. As I wrote to her in the mail, she has managed to create the monster, and now like a civil and nice Frankenstein, she has to bear with me through all my posts on her blog! Jokes apart, I really hope it does her and her readers some good for this is doing me a lot good for sure – by keeping me busy! J
So, this is the Gatsby Extreme Hold Hair Spray. I can only imagine that America and Gatsby have a common connection, so this is called Gatsby. Let’s just hope that it holds the hair in position as well as the novel did to the readers.

The Hole That It Will Burn In your Pocket:
Not really! At Nivedita’s suggestion, I got this from HealthKart, and it cost me 150.00 INR. That’s really comfy keeping in mind the parlours charge to set your hair. THAT surely burns a big hole, but not this one.

The Promises Made:
Are kept. It has this citrus smell that made me like it instantly. It sprays evenly and is completely non-sticky. I don’t really know about the shiny effect that it promises, but surely my hair didn’t look dull.

All the literature you SHOULD know

The bottle, made of metal, contained 250ml in total. I guess there was some offer going on, for the bottle said 200ml+50ml. And remembering the price, I loved it all over again!
Signed, Sealed, Delivered, It’s Yours:
HEalthKart sent this spray perfectly packed in a cardboard box, and there came two little gifts with it as well. There was a little bottle of Gatsby’s after-shave lotion and a sachet of Gatsby’s water-based gel. My brother used the after-shave, and quite liked it. I tried the gel, and liked it too.
1.The price. I mean seriously, where do you get such quality of hair spray for a price that won’t get you even a decent pizza?
2.The quantity for the price is great.
3.The quality – yes, I loved it. The hold is actually almost as good as The Great Gatsby! No stickiness, no bad smell. It kept my hair in the style for more than 6 hours at a stretch without any spraying on.
4.The gifts I got from HealthKart. After all, who doesn’t like a little perks with the actual thing?
Don’t blame me if I couldn’t find any, for I seriously couldn’t!
A thousand times, yes!

  5. hi simantini..i like ur style..its so fresh

  6. this sounds wonderful. Maybe I will give it a shot after I finish my tigi hairspray

  7. @Karishma - I don't use sprays often, but as beauticians advise, any chemical has adverse effects on hair. So try to use it as moderately as possible, and take care of hair regularly.
    @Bhumika, Namita, Vanity, Indianmakeupways - Thanks, yeah it has proved to be good for me.
    @Sunaa - Thansk, and yes it is grease-free. The instant stickiness on your skin will go with water. But the hair remains grease-free.
    @Nivedita - I'm LOVIN' it!!
