Bring the Old Formula Back

By disappointed

from Chicago, IL

Comments about Rusk W8less Plus Extra Strong Hold Shaping and Control Hairspray:

I used this hairspray for years and loved it until they changed their formula (around the same time they changed the shape of the can) It used to hold my style and it would still look good the next day even after I brushed my hair. Now, it only holds my style for about and hour and makes my hair look big and puffy. I tried other hairsprays and came back to try it again hoping maybe I got a bad can, but unfortunately it's still not working for me :(

Comments about Rusk W8less Plus Extra Strong Hold Shaping and Control Hairspray:

I started buying this over a year ago at the recommendation of my stylist. At first I LOVED this product, but the last 3 cans I've purchased have either had a nozzle that didn't work or developed a nozzle that didn't work after a few uses.
After returning to the store and exchanging the canister 3 times, I'd have thought Rusk would have fixed the issue.
I'm not the only reviewer who's mentioned this problem and had hoped Rusk would have fixed the issue by now. Unfortunately it seems to still be the main issue, and sadly I have to change brands until I read other reviews saying it's fixed. :(
Even my stylist has had to return the product. At first I thought it was just bad luck, but having read so many reviews about the same issue I'm sorry to say that Rusk either isn't listening or Ulta isn't notifying Rusk; either way I cannot continue to spend time and money on a product that has a faulty nozzle.

        I have fine, straight hair but holds curl well. Some days I flat iron and some days I curl for beach wavy look. This hair spray didn't hold either style.

          Comments about Rusk W8less Plus Extra Strong Hold Shaping and Control Hairspray:

          I've been using w8less hairspray for over 10 years (like a can every month!) I must use spray every day due to my fine hair and this product has no equal in my opinion...however, about 2 years ago, I noticed the nozzles don't function well any more. I've had cans that won't spray from the the second or third use, and at least a dozen cans have quit with at least half the product yet in them. Nothing seems to solve the issue (i.e. running hot water over it, using a pin, holding the can upside down.) I've complained to Rusk who kindly sent me 3 replacement cans. I was hoping they'd see how many complaints they're getting and change their nozzle vendor, but that's obviously not happening. I hate to give up on w8less because when it works, there's nothing that beats it, but I can't keep spending that kind of money and hoping I've won the lottery with a can that will actually spay from start to finish. Will gladly recommend the product if Rusk will do the right thing and fix the problem.
