Top Positive Review
Unfortunately, my hairdresser recently changed the formula in his hairspray that I had used for years. I have tried numerous products in the last year without success. Since I live in an area with high numbers of Covid cases, I have not been able to get my hair foiled which adds thickness to my fine hair. I am so pleased that this product actually holds and thickens my unbleached hair without being sticky.

This is hands down the best hairspray I’ve ever used. I was introduced to it by a hair stylist when I was living in San Diego and have been using it faithfully ever since. The best things about it is a) it is called “This is an Extra Strong Hairspray” and that’s exactly what it is – – extra strong. It holds my style like crazy, and somehow does this without making me look like I’m wearing a helmet. b) it doesn’t flatten or straighten my curls. That is, it isn’t heavy enough to do that. In fact, it’s light. c) if I spray my hair on Monday, the style and curl is still there on Wednesday AFTER I brush it out. In other words, it actually helps to keep the curl and style and finally, although it may look expensive, the can somehow holds tons and tons of spray and lasts me for six-eight months, which mitigates the sticker shock you might be experiencing. That said — and I’m sorry to have to say this — I do NOT recommend buying it from the website directly. When I saw on the website that they’re out of it or that it’s unavailable I tried the “This is a Strong Hold Hairspray” and that was a huge mistake. But, contacting the website customer service did absolutely no good whatsoever! I wrote 3 emails and NEVER heard back from them. Not a word. So, even though they say they want to make you happy. Well, ha ha, they don’t. I was thrilled to have found the product I wanted here on Amazon where they make returns easy peasy. Yes. It actually costs a little bit more on Amazon, but with Prime, the shipping is free so it all works out in the end. Bottom line, if you like a good hold on a big hair hairdo (which is what I like), and if you like a swingy hair style or you like your hair to appear thicker than it is, (tip: spray your hair brush and then brush your hair with it — voila! swingy, thick, straight hair) then I can highly recommend this product. With that and it’s long term ability to maintain the style it’s a great buy even at twice the price. That’s right. Twice the price. (Note: I had it taken by airport security when I forgot about it in my carryon — “Oh, no!” I told the guy don’t throw it out — give it to your wife!” That’s how good I think this hairspray is — I would even recommend it to airport security!) Update: Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. Something is definitely wrong with this can of hairspray. Either they’ve changed the formula or this simply is NOT the hairspray I have been buying even though it LOOKS like the same can. This hairspray is worthless. It doesn’t hold at all let alone act like it gives “extra strong hold.” I’m not buying it again. And I don’t think you should either. Not if what you want is what it says on the can that it is because that’s not what it is. It’s a joke in a can. That’s what it is.
