What do people use as a fixative for charcoal drawings?

I had previously been using hairspray - lol

Oh yes, Hairspray...know it well. I use a workable fixative, if you buy the artist brand you will pay $3 more for the same stuff you get if you buy at Wal Mart or hardware store. I't about $3 to $4...but watch how you spray it otherwise you could saturate areas of your work and that could be devastating.
