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.

Do not purchase this if smells awful. I ignored the other reviews on the scent and regret it. I had to return it because I couldn't think of putting that in my hair. Put a different product from this brand.
Smell, No Hold, Itchy Scalp
Ashley from California
First of all, it smells expired. Secondly, it does not hold for long. I was using it when I did a trial for my wedding day hair. So I need a strong hold and this did not even last a whole hour. Third, I am pretty sure this product has made my scalp messed up. My sister in law sprayed a lot of this directly onto the back of my scalp. Ever since, my scalp has been itching specifically in that area, even after two hair washes now. ):
Holy grail of texture
Maron27 from Maryland
I was looking for a product to add volume to my long flat hair. I love that I can style my hair, spray the texture spray for extra bounce and volume. I feel like this would be good for all types of hair as usually mine does get oily after about 2-3 days no washing. It's exactly what I needed.
Holds well, but doesn't smell good at all.
Fevie1973 from East Liverpool, OH
I've purchased many NYM products, and they have all smelled amazing. This one - not so much. It holds well, so if you don't mind the initial unpleasant scent as you're spraying, you should be okay.
Solid hairspray was exactly what I was searching for
Carly from Delaware
I have been looking for an affordable hair spray, that leaves hair soft but still has control. This is perfect and does exactly what I need it to do. My hair is frizzy and wavy and on the thin side. This hairspray works perfect for a nice soft top knot bun or pony tail without looking or feeling Crunchy or slicked back.
Not as expected
Stephroman from Mastic, ny
I thought it would smell a lot better than it does. It holds very well but the smell is not that great!
I would buy this product again
GeenBean from IL
I love this products the smell is great and it doesn't make my hair crunchy and sticky. And it gives just enough volume.
Best Hairspray ever!
ChrisK from York
Love the Not Your Mother's Brand.
From shampoo to conditioner to hairspray to leave-in and even dry shampoo...this brand is wonderful.
Patricia from Tyler Texas
Use as texture & hold
My new hair hold companion from North Carolina
I've been switching back and fourth between different hairsprays looking for one I could use routinely for a long time. I love this because it lets your hair be free and moveable while keeping a good hold! It's a lot less expensive than some pricey hairsprays I've used before and it works just as good if not better.
Darcee from Yakima Wa
I love this product works amazing
Favorite affordable hair spray
Jacky from Chicago, IL
Favorite hair spray. Inexpensive, light, but the hold is insane.
Joyce from Ocean springs, MS
Has great hold
Heather from VA
While it provided a little volume to my very thin hair the smell was awful. So glad I only bought the miniature trial bottle.
Smells like bug spray!
JC from WA
Wow I am really disappointed in the NYM hair styling products! This does nothing and smells disgusting!
Kp from Portland
I usually never complain about products scents but I truly could not get past the smell of this hairspray. I used it once and worked okay but I immediately regretted wearing it due to the intense smell and being able to smell it though the day was not pleasurable.
lovely from Saint Paul
I'm not one to usually complain about the smell of products but this smells horrible! i most definitely do not recommend this product. I promise you will regret waisting your money on this.
Nancy from Michigan
As my preference IS light hold, it works just fine. Scent is nice. Brushes out cleanly without leaving hair feeling stiff and dirty. That's an added bonus for me!
My go to daily hairspray
KitCat from Douglasville, GA
I use this hairspray daily. Only thing I would change is having the nozzle have adjustable settings to control the flow. Wouldn't that be a novel idea. 😊
Good for a While
aaliceschrem from Arizona
This used to be my favorite go-to brand for volumizing hairspray. I loved the scent and hold was great too, it was a nice upgrade from Herbal Essences. Over time, I had started to develop break-outs around the nape of my neck etc. and sadly had to discontinue use and move on to something different to avoid continuing break-outs.
Sandra from NC
As others said - it has a smell. I only used it one day so far becuz of the smell. I'll try it again and go outside to see if the smell dissipates.
Karen from Saginaw, MI
I don't know if this product works or not because I could not get past the terrible smell!!! Will be returning it!!!
My favorite hair spray
Jess from York,South Carolina
I use this when I curl my hair to add volume and to hold my curls in place. It works very well! Plus the sent is amazing!
Good Devacurl Hairspray Dupe!
KIM J. from Texas
I have fine curly hair and do the curly girl method blah, blah. I use Devacurl Hairspray because it is light and doesn't dry out my fine curls. They do not do a travel size and I have been searching for an equivalent hairspray in travel size. I tried the John Frieda Frizz Ease Moisture Barrier but it was too stiff and heavy for my fine hair. When I tried this - I was like bingo! It was light and acted just like the DevaCurl spray but it is $18 cheaper - which is brilliant for me because I use tons of hairspray every day. Also the area I live is very humid and it worked well for that too.
Wish they would bring back the hairspray in the blue can!
Norma from Princeton, Louisiana
Love the way it brushes and washes out!! Tried so many different brands but stick with this one
