I Love Aqua Net

Updated on December 30, 2017

Another Voice for Aqua Net

My Most Essential Beauty Product of All Time

This product got me through the eighties! You see, I have naturally thin hair, making it diffucult to get the Farrah Fawcett hair volume many of my peers achieved during that decade. To get eighties volume, I would bend forward at the waist, spray my long hair, stand up, smooth down the outermost hairs, and spray again. Depending on the humidity level and wind speed, I could have big hair for two to six hours.

Why Aqua Net? There is a reason this classic hair product is still around; It is affordable (important if you go through a can or two a week) and it really does hold. Women in the South, where big hair never really went away, still use it to survive the humidity in style.

While I live with thin, limp hair, I do have hope for a better future. As a Bible-believing Christian, I know one day God will give me a glorified body. I was discussing this with one of my similarly hair-challenged sisters (church sister, not biological sister) one day:

"You know what really excites me when I think about the glorified bodies we'll have in heaven?"

"What's that, honey?"

"Well, I'm assuming that body will include glorified hair."

"Wow! You're right! Some day we'll be sitting in our Big Hair mansions in the sky."

Of course, I'm sure once we see Jesus we'll be so excited we'll never bother to think about our hair again, but it is still nice to remember that all the trials of earthly life, tiny and huge, are just pit stops on the way to Eternity.

Sometimes it's the small pleasures in life that keep us going on a tough day. Aqua Net is one of those products that helps me while I sojourn in this fallen world.

Cool Laundry Tip Using Aqua Net!

Have you ever had a pen explode in your pocket or made a stray ink mark on your clothing? Spray that stain generously with Aqua Net, then launder as usual. Check the stain before drying the item and repeat the treatment if needed. This has saved articles of clothing for me several times.

What are your thoughts on big hair or the eighties?

      I did the eightys big hair. What a mess of long hair I had full of spray but that was the times.

      I want thick hair with lots of volume, but, unfortunately, I have thin hair as well. I love the Farrah Fawcett look & have always wanted it. My hair won't hold curl for very long though, so Farrah Fawcett hair will just have to stay a dream.

      Thanks for this lens & I love when u said, "remember that all the trials of earthly life, tiny and huge, are just pit stops on the way to Eternity."... very lovely. Ultimately, my thin hair won't matter when I meet Jesus :-)

      I used to use Aqua Net on my hair. It was the only brand I trusted.

      Terrific lens-laugh out loud funny! Sudden Beauty was my go to hair spray from the 60's until I couldn't get it anymore. Chicago's humidity would turn my hair from sleek to fuzzball in nothing flat.
