2 Minute Review: Michael O'Rourke's Rock Your Hair "Spray It Hard" Big Volume Hairspray!

Hey Ladies!

Happy April/Spring!  We've got a lot going on and a lot to share with you, so we anticipate a busy week here on the site.  Stay tuned...we promise it will be fun.

I wanted to kick things off with the first of several Two Minute Reviews that will be up this week, featuring products from Michael O'Rourke's Rock Your Hair line, which were sent to us free of charge to play with, figure out, and review on our site.

Hooray for the power of PINK!!

So...remember those commercials back in the day when the girl would use a certain brand of hairspray, and then go jet skiing in order to demonstrate the powerful hold that that hairspray had?  Once she’d finished with her high speed chase across the water, she’d pose for the camera, showing off her barely changed ‘do.

I don’t know about you, but the promise of jet ski proof hairspray doesn’t do me a lot of good.  I live in a land locked state where it’s way below jet ski appropriate temperature about 9 months out of the year.  Perfect hair while participating in water sports isn’t my priority.

Instead, I need a hairspray that is going to get me through MY own brand of a crazy day, and while I have tried (and loved...and hated...and REALLY HATED) several brands, I was super excited to try out the Rock Your Hair "Spray It Hard Big Volume Hairspray."

Forget jet skiing...I was determined to see if this stuff could keep my hair in top shape for what MY usual day includes:

J's Average Day of Hair Endangering Hazards:

  • After spending too much time on eye make up...(again)...I realize that I'm supposed to be to work in 20 minutes, so I work at triple the recommended pace to get my hair in at least an acceptable arrangement.  Spray like there is no tomorrow, and pray that it stays put.
  • Change shirt 12 times at the speed of light because NOTHING goes with the eye makeup I spent so long on.  Check hair and makeup in the mirror on the way out the door.
  • Run out into Wyoming wind; dive into car.
  • Drive at break-neck speed with air conditioning blasting, because the lash glue on my eye suddenly doesn't feel quite dry.  Check face and hair in mirror at least 9 times during 12 minute drive.
  • Park in last row of parking lot because I'm 7 minutes late & nothing closer is available.  Run through Wyoming wind. Stop in the bathroom to check hair on the way to my desk.
  • Sit at desk in non-windy office.  Check face and hair in mirror throughout the morning.
  • 12:00?  Time for lunch hour grocery shopping.  You know what that means: Back into the Wyoming wind!
  • Spot old high school flame in produce section at grocery store; duck behind watermelons until he and new bride have safely moved on to the bakery.  Check hair and makeup in metallic surface of produce scale.
  • Back to work...nope...the wind hasn't let up!
  • Spend afternoon in relatively non-hair threatening environment.  Keep mirror handy, though...you just never know.
  • 5:00...head home!  I've probably got not big plans for the evening, but check my hair and makeup in the mirror throughout the drive anyway.
  • Too windy for brisk evening walk; settle for P90X Cardio instead.  Swear at Tony Horton from time to time...check hair and makeup as soon as workout is through.
  • Call it a day...Phew!
That...seriously...is my typical day.  And, with all of that abuse, you'd think that my hair would look horrifying by the end of it all.  Throughout every mirror check, however, I've found that Spray It Hard did the trick...my hair stayed presentable all day long!  In addition, I'm happy to report that while this product held my style all day, my hair never felt stiff, and I never felt like I looked like a helmet head...woohoo!

If you haven't tried anything from Michael O'Rourke's Rock Your Hair line, I can definitely recommend this hairspray.  I'm so excited that we were asked to try these products out...I might have never grabbed it on my own...but I can definitely see myself picking it up again in the future!

Spray It Hard Big Volume Hairspray is available at Walmart, Ulta or at several other online stores, starting at around $15.  Check it out!

Have you tried this hairspray or any other products from the Rock Your Hair line?  What is your favorite hairspray?

Stay tuned for more Rock Your Hair reviews throughout the week!
