Style+Care™ Strength & Shine Extra Hold Hairspray
I recently purchased this hairspray at BJ's Wholesale since it was the only Dove hairspray I could purchase there. After using the ORIGINAL hairspray that I have been using for years, I figured they just changed the packaging. I was 100% wrong. It smells TERRIBLE! I don't know why they would change the scent. I could smell it ALL day. Even when I got in the shower and the water hit my hair, I would still smell the disgusting hairspray. I used it a few times, hoping I would get used to it but I definitely didn't and stopped using it. I ended up purchasing another brand. I was sad to have to try something new since I have been using Dove hairspray for years. I will never buy it again. It smells too awful. Unfortunately when I purchased it at BJ's, I ended up getting 2 bottles. What a waste!!! I wish Dove would reimburse me for it! It will be in the back of my closet until one day I dump them. DO NOT BUY this product. I do not recommend it at all.

Bring back the Original
Why did you ever change this product. The original was the best ever. I am still checking every store I can to purchase the Original hair spray. Some stores still have old stock, but running out quickly as it is in high demand by other too.
Please, please bring back the original hair spray.
I am almost out now and cannot find anymore. Hurry!!!

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.)

I have been using Dove styling products for about six months now. I have purhased two cans of the Extra Hold hairspray and have used them for approximately 1 week each and would go to use them and all the hairspray from the can is sitting in the lid. The spray nozzle has extracted all the product out of the can. Not happy that this is my second bottle with the same issue. I will not be buying Dove in the future.

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"

overpowering, unpleasant scent
I love Dove products and I really wanted to like this one. I need to use hairspray everyday and I do like that Dove's hairspray is not heavy or sticky. But...I cannot get past the smell. It is so strong that it overpowers my perfume and the smell lasts all day. If they could change the scent to something lighter or unscented, I would definitely go back to using it.

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