Most Helpful Positive Review Great product for the price
I use several NYM products -- this is great hairspray for teasing your hair, for getting your style ready -- but I highly recommend a finishing spray when you're done, because this is strictly a shaping spray, not for extended hold.
Most Helpful Critical Review Smells Great, But Didn't Hold my Curls
This product was okay. I love this brand and use the other products on a daily basis. This one for me just didn't work. I went to a Baseball game and had my hair curled and used this product, but it didn't hold at all. By the end of the game all my curls had fallen out. My hair only hold curls when it's "dirty" and it was just like any other time I curled my hair and the game had hardly any humidity. You can try it for yourself. I love trying all kinds of products to see what works best for me, so that never hurts. I have long, blonde hair, it's semi think, and lacks volume and this product just didn't hold the curls I was needing it too.
Reviewed by 454 customers New formula not the same
Sb123 from Nevada
So disappointed that this product has changed. It used to be my go to, added great volume and the scent was amazing. I used to never use product in my hair and only used this hairspray and would get compliments on my hair all the time. New formula doesn't work the same and has an awful scent.
Kristen Marilyn from NJ
The scent is awful, overpowering, irritates my lungs and it lingers all day - that alone makes this product completely unusable. I also didn't notice any great hold or volume in my hair.
New scent change really "STINKS"…
Suzan from Chicago IL
How sad this brand recently changed the lovely original scent of this, my long time favorite hairspray, to a horrible new stinky smell that is just awful. They broke it! And the nozzle new design is also not very user friendly as it used to be originally. I am so disappointed that i emailed the manufacturer. What a bummer : ( !!!!
Works but Smell too strong
Sp from AL
Works great! Just cannot use to the heavy perfume smell from 2 sprays. I have never been bothered by strong scents so this is extra strong which is not needed for a hairspray.
Worst Smelling Hairspray Ever
Katherine from Florida
1) The scent is so strong and over powering. I have to go into another room immediately after using this or else I can't breathe.
2) I live in Florida and the hold doesn't stand through the humidity. My curls fell within 10 minutes after spraying a good amount.
Loved this hairspray..but that new smell and nozzle..
Heather D. from Tennessee
Why oh why did they change the smell and sprayer? The scent is AWFUL. It's a mix between bug spray and old lady perfume. The sprayer top is so silly now.. you have to hold the bottle in such an unnatural way now just to spray your hair. I've used this hairspray for many years- and really hate that it's changed so much, to where I will not purchase it again.
New scent is awful!
PLG from FL
I have used this hairspray for YEARS! Holds great & not hard or sticky. However, my recent order,very disappointed, the scent has changed & it smells not like your Mommas but like a great great grandmas perfume. It's really awful. Went to store a few weeks later for some, thought maybe it was a bad batch. Nope. Same stinky scent. And stays all day. Yuck.
Please go back to your former scent. After many years guess I need to find a new product.
My favorite hairspray. Holds without stiffness, not sticky.
LindaG from Southern California
Have been using this spray for a long time...it is the best I have found and smells great too.
Why did you change it?!?!
Curly from USA
The new formula is terrible! I LOVED this spray-But now my bouncy curls are ruined with this mess. It is heavy and feels gross, the nozzle sprays upwards and it STINKS! I am so disappointed.
Do not like the new smell
jamieinny from Ithaca, NY
I don't know why they changed this product, but now the scent is so strong it sets off a migraine for me. It's much too strong. The design of the sprayer has also been changed so that it no longer sprays where you want it to, you have to angle your arm at an awkward position to spray where the sprayer wants you to, which is straight ahead. The spray is also much too strong now so that it blows your hair out of place. SO disappointed in the "new" product. I liked it the way it was.
Formula Changed .. Now a Dud
LakeErieGirl from NEOhio
This was one of my favorite brands of hairsprays to keep on hand. I would purchase at least 2 or 3 cans at a time. It helped so much with my fine, limp hair. The volume and body after using it would be amazing... now NO SUCH LUCK! The new formula is awful. It is like spraying dirty water on my hair. The smell is not pleasing at all. I cannot believe after all these years, I will be searching again for hairspray. It was too good to last, I guess. I used high end sprays, but this was once the best.. now it is a dud!
Save your money, this hairspray is the best
Shell Bell from Phoenix Arizona
I have spent so much money on various products to find out what works best and this one wins.
Formula has changed.
Snooklefritz from NV
I love this hairspray, although they've changed the scent. It smells different. Not bad, not great, it's just different. Seems as though it has a bit more hold now too. I wish they could have tweeked the formula for more hold without having to compromise the scent.
Best hairspray for fine hair!
CLStO from MA
great light spray and easy to comb through yet holds so well,
Great hairspray, terrible new scent
MKNels from Lancaster PA
I have used this hairspray faithfully for a few years, buying 3-4 cans at a time. It gives my limp hair so much texture and holds all day. However, they just changed the scent and my recent haul of 3 cans is going back. It is so strong, unpleasant, reminiscent of an "old lady perfume" and ended up giving me a headache by the end of the day. I am so disappointed to have to search for the perfect hairspray again. They should've stuck with their light beachy and fruity smells.
great hairspray, different scent...
Christine from Chicago
This is a good holding hairspray. I've been using this brand of hairspray since, 2019 and I recently bought two fresh bottles and the scent is different from previous bottles . So for me, I'm knocking a star based on that.
Love this hairspray!
Snooklefritz from Las Vegas
Has great hold. It gives hair a great shine and volume too. Smells wonderful! Highly recommend.
LCYG19 from Colorado Springs, CO
Very good hairspray, strong hold and gives good volume to hairstyles.
Don't like the smell
Jane from Las Vegas, NV
I like other products of this brand, so I thought I'd try the hairspray. I don't like the smell of it at all, so much so that I stopped using it.
love this product
Maryallen from Rockford, IL
I have used this for about 5 yrs now..i like that it is not sticky and just a little does the trick. the aerosol is best..the non aerosol is a little wet.
Ash from New York
Really good hair spray.
Seriously Great Hairspray
Stellar from Arizona
I don't love all NYM products, but this hairspray is amazing. It's not too heavy. It has really good hold without being too stiff or sticky. I just love this stuff. And the price is great too.
lillian-GR from WA
This had minimal hold & volume, made my hair feel dirty and needing a wash, after washing & styling. The smell was unpleasant but dissapated quickly, was difficult to brush out and easily made my hair stringy. My main issue though is everytime I followed directions or sprayed near my roots it would get on my scalp and as soon as it dried would come off in extra large super dry dandruff-like flakes, creating days worth of build up all on its own. I am obsessed with scalp care so this was extra annoying to me, & also how I know it was this product making that effect since I rarely see flakes otherwise. Poor quality, returned.
Chris K from York, PA
Best hairspray I've found that does not make my hair sticky, does not flake like most I've tried and still feels soft after use and after brushout.
Favorite hairspray ever
Lex from Ca
This is my absolute favorite hairspray. I always stock up on it. I did notice the last 2 cans that I had smelled bad when I first started using them. After a bit of using it, the amazing smell of the hairspray came back. I love the way it makes my hair smell and it does give my hair volume and texture when I use it.
