Rated 4.59 out of 5 stars
I have been using this hair spray for a couple years now. Having thinner and curly hair, my hair goes flat quite often and can feel very full of product. I have tried other brands or convenience but this is the best one and the price is affordable. I loved when they had Marilyn printed on the bottle.
This is the worst hairspray I've ever used, far worse than any drugstore brands. I got a travel size (thank goodness I didn't waste money on a full size) and I couldn't be more disappointed. This hairspray will literally create tangles in any hair type. By the end of the day, my curls are in knots that can't be brushed or undone and end up getting ripped out. It causes so much breakage and leaves your hair unmanageable. I don't know why they called it spray and play. It should be spray and stiff or spray and BALD. The only good thing about this is that it seems to have a semi-good hold, even in high humidity, but this comes at a cost of ruining healthy hair.

I have used the Big &Sexy Spray & Play for over15 years and loved and recommended it to others. But I purchased 3 cans about 2 months ago and all 3 cans seem like more air coming out and less spray and less hold-which we need for the humid climate in Houston area. So disappointing, will have to change to another brand (long hair which I hot roll).

I have tried a lot of hair spray and other hold and volume products this is the best hands down! Holds forever and i love the scent. Volume for days literally
Jen from Upstate, NY
I use this almost daily. It's good hold, but not crunchy or sticky. I use it to add volume, hold styles, etc. The different scents and regular are all appealing, not overly chemical smelling like some hairsprays.
Renee from Charlotte, NC
My hair is VERY THIN and straight, so I have to perm it to get any volume. This hairspray holds my hair GREAT without weighing it down! I have been using it for many years now! I recommended it my mom and sister and they both use it as well!!

I have been buying this hairspray for as long as I can remember. They have recently changed it and I do not like it. Will be changing to another brand.

I have used this hairspray for many years. Recently purchased and noticed that the scent had changed which I thought was pleasant. However the formula itself has also changed. Does not hold your hair. Its almost like its watered down. It also is hard to get anything other than air to spray from the can. I had planned to return this and get another can but after reading other reviews I think I will switch products.
Pam from Arizona
I have been using this hairspray for a long time. Now, mostly air comes out and hardly any hairspray. I will be returning this for a second time and will look for a different hairspray. This stuff is basically useless as it is now. Very disappointed.

Used this for years….. loved it….. in the last few months it is not the same. Does not hold like it used to… very upset. Gonna have to find a new brand!!
Morgan from USA
I've tried this in the past and liked it. However, I was disappointed with my recent purchase of this product. Similar to the experience of another reviewer, when I try to spray, mostly air comes out. Some of the hairspray will eventually come out, but it doesn't mist that well. Unfortunately, because of this issue, it doesn't hold my styles well.
Rachel from NC
I have very fine, straight hair. I like that it holds my hair in place. But, I have to wash it frequently because the hairspray builds up quickly. If it wasn't for that I'd love it.

Mild fragrance and firm hold without being sticky or stiff.

Light fragrance and light hold.

Meant to say in my original review that her hair did NOT go into a poof ball, thank goodness, this spray did what it was suppose to do. Pls see full review, could not find a way to edit to made this 2nd one real quick.
So needed something for my teens hair, bc her hair poofs and gets crazy with the Florida weather and her hair style is gone within the first hour it seems. So, we use this as a over all finish spray, the hold is good, a little goes a long way, she has not had any issues with her hair losing its style and the poof and frizz is way less, its been rainy and muggy lately and her hair finally did go into a poof ball so that is nice. I dont see much of the shine factor or anything, we've only used this a handful of times but will continue to try out to see if there are further benefits. Would purchase as her daily go to "hair spray", mainly for hold and to help with frizz / as a finishing product.

This has been my favorite hairspray for 8-10 years. Something has changed. A cheaper nozzle perhaps. The two new cans I recently bought, I had to return. Spraying the hairspray, all I get was "air", then after a couple of seconds, finally hairspray, only its super heavy and sticky. This happens over and over. Shaking the can didn't help. Running the spray nozzle under hot water did nothing. Prior to this debacle, this hairspray was amazing!! Gave me great volume that lasted all day. Super disappointing!!
