I purchased this because I often need a bit of hold at the bottom of my ombre (see damaged) hair. This hairspray is so bad that it actually uncurls my hair. I don't often write reviews, but I did a test: I curled the bottom of one side of my hair and set with this hairspray, and did the other side after 1 minute (to ensure proper temperature of the iron) and did not set. After my 12 hour day, my unset hair was slightly curled, while the side with this product was limp and straight. This is the most terrible hairspray I have ever used. I usually use Redken 23... I will be sticking to that. My hair is very long (past bra-strap), medium texture, medium wave.
