Style+Care™ Strength & Shine Extra Hold Hairspray
FRAGRANCE is terrible
I'm not sure why fragrance is needed in this product. It makes my eyes burn and gives me a headache. It was a complete waste of money.

Change is bad. Now back to Aveda
The old blue bottle damage therapy version was better than the more costly Aveda, so I used it for years until last year's formula change. The new stuff is too sticky and smells awful. Sorry Dove, you failed the "New Coke" experiment miserably.

Really hating the new - bring back the blue hair spray!
I went to your website to see if I could order the blue Damage Therapy pump hair spray, and I see there are close to 30 other comments that are all saying the same thing: Bring back the blue stuff! I thought the pink bottle was the same formula in a new bottle, but it's not - the old was light, smelled great , and left my hair shiny and easy to comb. New bottle is thick, gloppy, and leaves my hair stiff and dull. Ugh. Why can't companies leave well enough alone when you have a winning product? I have worked in advertising and marketing, and hope you guys listen to your consumers. (And if you're really smart, you'll bring it back in the old blue bottle, so we know it's the real thing...) Thanks for your consideration, and I hope we can get our favorite old blue hair spray back.

Used Dove Damage Therapy extra hold hair spray in the clear bottle for years until it was discontinued recently. The new kid on the block is this product. I immediately bought a bottle and used it a total of 3 times - I live in Florida and the weather is very, very humid where I reside - so this product became very tacky feeling once exposed to the humidity. Plus when sprayed on, my hair became almost like a board - very stiff, then add the tackiness to that and what a mess. I wish the old product was still available. What a shame companies have to keep trying to improve on products that people really like, and actually make them worse. I am not a Dove consumer anymore.

Could not stand the smell and feel of my own hair
I have used dove hair spray for years. Loved it. Now I hate it will never buy again. The smell made me nauseated. Everyone around me said what is that smell. They said my hairspray made it hard to breath. I had to leave my doing early to go wash my hair. My hair felt horrible with it on gummy hard heavy could not even separate a strand without pulling out my hair. It looked sticky and fake. Talk about a hair helmet. Even if it was good the smell makes me sick. Bring back the original. Why change dove were people complaining. Well they are now I will buy no dove products from now on.

SCRAP this product
What have you done to this hairspray? PLEASE bring back the former formula! This current product - which I now have stopped using - only after a retry - left my hair with a sticky residue that almost felt like a "plastic" finish on the hair - which required repeated shampooing to try to remove it. I was a faithful Dove hairspray user for many years. It WAS the best product for the money on the market.....I am so disappointed with this new formula...and now searching for a new hairspray.

This is awful. BRING BACK THE BLUE BOTTLE!
Like every other review I have read, I am so terribly disappointed. With the new formula, my hair looks greasy, feels stiff and it smells horrible. I went to visit my mom and she actually asked me when the last time I washed my hair was because of how it looked (dull and greasy) and smelled. I had just showered only a couple hours before. I was so embarrassed. I will not buy another bottle.
I am very upset. I have been using Dove Hairspray for YEARS and chose it because it offered awesome hold, natural movement and people used to comment about how shiny my hair was and how awesome it smelled. Those days with Dove are apparently gone. I'll be looking for a new brand. :(

I bought this hairspray thinking it was just a redesigned bottle. Boy was I wrong. This left my hair crispy, flat and just awful. I have been going store to store looking for the blue bottle and now realizing that it is not being sold any longer. I am so upset. This new Dove hairspray was so bad that I returned to the store, I couldn't even suck it up and use it and then find something else. I am so disappointed. I will be looking for a new brand if Dove can't bring the blue stuff back. Are there any suggestions??
