My hair is very fine but also thick at the same time. It is also straight. This hairspray is not the worse I have used. And the smell is not too overpowering. It does not have maximum hold, but it does however hold good enough that your curls only drop and not fall (if you get what I'm saying). It does have a little bit of a greasy look to it. The greasy look only shows when you use a lot. If you use this product, use it at a minimal. I do not recommend using this product if you need "maximum" hold.
