Beauty Buzz: L’Oreal Paris Elnett Satin

Hairstylist from around the world swear by L’Oreal Paris’ Elnett Satin hairspray. I swear I see it in almost every photo from a “behind the scenes” shoot. Well, it’s not a new product by any means. In fact, it’s been around for four decades. But, it’s only been available in the U.S. for a few years.

I was recently gifted a can at a L’Oreal event and I’ve kind of become obsessed with it. It really offers hold, but it doesn’t leave your hair sticky. And it brushes out really easily without leaving any of that white residue that some hairsprays do. Guess that’s where the “satin” comes from.

It’s also supposed to offer protection against humidity, but we don’t have much of this around Los Angeles, so I’m not sure. Some people do complain of the scent, but I actually like it. If you’re one of those, they do offer an unscented formula. Regardless, this is one great product. Looks like I’ve found a hairspray that will continue to stand the test of time.

Elnett Satin is available in four formulas: Strong Hold, Extra Strong Hold, Extra Strong Hold Unscented, and Extra Strong Hold for Color-Treated hair. The last one offers a UV filter to protect your colored hair.


  • I started using this about a year ago and I love it! I had never been a hairspray fan before and now I can’t live without it. Living in PA, we have very humid summers and this keeps my curly hair from turning frizzy —not an easy job!!!

  • I hate the white residue that hairspray leaves behind if you use too much or touch your hair after, it looks like nasty dandruff or something lol, will have to check out this hairspray, sounds pretty awesome!
