I purchased this hair spray because it was small enough to fit into my carryon luggage for a short trip. It was such a disaster I ended up finding a drugstore and purchasing a full size bottle of something else because this was so useless. Maybe it's my hair, but it didn't hold, and it left terrible residue and flaking in my hair that looked like dandruff. I don't have dandruff. It also had a horrible smell that gave me a headache and it didn't go away. It just kept offgassing. The worst was that it did not do what it was supposed to do, it didn't hold my hair. It went immediately soft and my hair went limp. Maybe I'm a child of the 80s and expect some sort of hardness, but if it says it's supposed to maintain your hairstyle, then DO IT. Two thumbs down. Don't be swayed.
