Style+Care™ Strength & Shine Extra Hold Hairspray
REALLY terrible - bring back the old formula please
This new Dove Extra Hold hairspray formula/scent is terrible. Overbearing, unpleasantly fruity scent, and the Extra Hold is SO incredibly sticky. I had to shampoo my hair 5 times in a row just to get the stuff out. And I mean a vigorous, scrubbing shampoo each time. This stuff can't be good for hair, it's like superglue. After I use this hairspray I have to wash my hands, because the spray makes everything so awfully sticky! Used to use the old formula daily (along with the Flexible Hold) but this partially-used can is going directly into the trash.
Bring back the old formula and scent, please! I will not be purchasing Dove hairspray again, and I am one who used to buy four and five canisters at a time of the old formulas. A disappointment, and I am now looking for a new brand.
(Also, I see someone from Dove is posting replies... please just return to something more closely resembling the old formula and especially the old scent.)

The scent is horrible
I USED Dove hairspray for years and loved it. When they changed the formula I bought 3-4 cans as I always did in the past. I used it one time and I was sickened by the smell for hours. As soon as I returned home, I showered just to get rid of the smell. I put the rest of the cans in the trash!!!! I too wish they would go back to the old formula in the white and blue can and the old "scent" ( I don't remember it smelling and the hold was great). Please return to your original product. To me this is as horrible as the "New Coke"

This product clogs consistently. Nearly impossible to use, completely unreliable. Do not purchase.

Best hairspray ever
This is the best hair spray I've ever tried. It has incredible hold but doesn't make your hair sticky or look like its hard as rock. I would highly recommend it. Price is always great too!

I have been using Dove hairspray since I can remember.
I have been using Dove hairspray since I can remember. I do like the "old" style better, but I continue using the new formula it still works good for me. My issue is the sprayer stops working. I am on my third can(pink sprayer) that has just stopped spraying. It comes out of the top, but not out of the sprayer. So frustrating! I've even purchased them a different places because I thought that could be the issue. And I've cleaned the sprayhole, not that either. Suggestions?

I just finished the last of my old pump spray bottle and bought a new one. I am so disappointed in the new formula. The old formula smelled WONDERFUL, wasn't sticky and didn't leave flakes in your hair. The new formula is just the opposite, the smell is overbearing, it's sticky and leaves flakes. I'm sure the intention was good to change the formula but unfortunately didn't hit the mark for this customer.

My opinion of this hairspray is at the other end of the spectrum. I LOVE this hairspray. I can finally style my hair and it will stay in place without feeling & looking stiff. Actually, I use the spray as a styling tool too. I spray and then comb. As for the smell, I love it also. It has a fresh/powder odor. I would buy this product in bulk!

There is nothing "bouncy" about this product.
I've tried this replacement product as I was a faithful and happy user of the Dove hairspray this product replaced. After a few applications I just tossed it. It gives a new meaning to the term "Helmet Head." Any chance the old product can be brought back to life?
