Used this for a week now, first time. Was impressed with the PM Leave in conditioner, although that doesn't smell anything special. The spray wax must be used a bit at a time and it does say on the back to use on dry hair. I have alot of thick, curly hair which I use my GHD's on and this did keep my hair when worn down, piecey, textured - smooth and piecey and no frizzies after going out in drizzle.
Didn't make my hair shine but I like it as it basically keeps my hair unfrizzed and keeps it closer to looking done than other products. Will buy an additional spray shine mist from somewhere.
Not clogged but it is expensive. I haven't seen any other high street product that does this so am willing to pay out and it really doesn't need a lot to have an effect. Spray on ends is best.

I have extremely straight Asian hair that is always cut and styled in a very texturized fashion. Admittedly, I'm not a huge hair products kinda gal and HATE having too much crap in my hair. Unfortunately, I like my hair to look styled and now that it's short, if I don't apply some sort of texturizing or molding product my hair tends to look frizzy or mushroom-y. :(
I'm usually a straight-up Aveda girl, as I love their scents and do not suffer from any allergic reactions when using their products. Some Paul Mitchell products have caused me some serious breakouts... but this Spray Wax does not harm, thankfully!
I love how this makes my hair look: textured, choppy, obedient... just make sure that you start applying sparingly - if you use too much, it will weigh your hair down and make it look incredibly greasy.

Nice as a finishing product for longer hair. Doesn't get too hair or waxy, all you need is a little and it gives you a light hold. Better for thin to medium hair. Girls with coarse hair would need something stronger. I personally prefer Short Sexy Hair Play Dirty Spray Wax over this.

Hair spray is too stiff, and wax is too greasy. But the combination of both? Like PB&J! This is the next best thing since sliced bread! Perfect for teasing my limp Asian hair, and gives me so much flexibility. I don't think it is too greasy not sticky, just need to have control when you spray! And it smells so damn good! If this scent comes in a perfume I would totally wear it!
I have a lot of trouble finding this at stores...so I think when my can runs out I think I need to buy it online. Oh well! As long as I can find it thats all that matters!

I like the concept--a wax that sprays easily onto hair or fingertips and gives hair a matte separated look. However, this turned out to be one of the stickier waxes I've used, and it made my hair look greasy pretty quickly. It's also impossible to wash out, and seems to weigh down hair any longer than shoulder-length. My friends (and boyfriend) who have short punkish cuts love it for nights out, but I find it more of a hassle than a staple.

I usually use Tigi Bedhead spray wax, but I got this for travelling since it comes in a small size. Unfortunately, I hate it. It works well to add texture, but it has a slightly cloying "hair product" smell, and it's way too sticky. It's hard to wash out - expect to shampoo twice or even three times to get it out, and don't even try to run your hands through your hair after using it.
I've tried spraying it on more lightly, but in order to get any styling effect, you'll need to spray on enough that your head is sticky all day.

I at first like some was really un-sure about this product. But with time I found out what is best with my hair. I have rather thin hair but a lot of it, and it does not hold much product before it starts to look heavy and greasy. I mostly use this product for my bangs and fly aways. One good tip I can share to all is if you spray too much on you are screwed!!! Try spraying it into your hand and working it through your fingers. Then apply it to your hair. That way you control which fingers touch your hair and where. Therefore you never take the chance of spraying too much product and you can't blame the nozzle anymore!

I have long, fine, layered hair. I used this as a finishing product.
I have mixed feelings about this spray wax.
It's *very* easy to put too much on. And once you do, you are stuck with very geasy, stringy hair. Also, if you've put too much on, it is hard to get out in the next shower - I find that I have to specifically shampoo the ends of my hair, and even then I can feel the product in my hair once it's dry.
With that said, when I use just the right amount, this product works really well. I use it on my side-swept bangs to create hold that isn't stiff, like when I use hairspray. It's more move-able, but makes the hair stick together, and create a slightly messy look. On my long layers, it makes my hair look slightly textured and messy.
Even when used correctly, this wax creates a definite sticky feeling on my hair, which I dislike. Also, even after practicing with this product, I still can't guarantee a good application..and since the bad application looks *so* bad, I am nervous about using this product.
Update 4/16/08: I haven't used this product in months. I think about using it but them get nervous about using too much. It's just too much effort. Too bad!

Loved this stuff when I had shorter hair. It was the ONLY brand of wax that I would put anywhere near my hair for several reasons. 1) because it washed out with the FIRST application of Shampoo, and 2) It was not too drying for my hair, I could achieve crazy styles knowing my hair would NOT have pay for it later. I only gave it a 3 for packaging because the nozzle clogged over and over again, no big deal but it was tiresome to run it under hot water alomst everytime I used it even after taking great care to keep it clean. That minor flaw aside five stars...er lippies for a FANTASTIC PRODUCT.

This is very good. You just need a little bit and it keeps your style in place. You cannot use alot or it will look greasy. The nozzle could be better though. Will definately keep this item!!

This used to be one of my favorite finishing products. If you have long layers, this is nice in place of hairspray for a finishing product. It defines layers, in a very subtle way, and adds some volume. I like that I couldn't really feel it in my hair (unless I used a ton), and it didn't make my hair still like hairspray. The smell is very light and doesn't linger. I wish they would improve the packaging though - I had problems with the spray nozzle getting clogged.

I love this product. I have short curly hair that I straighten for my everyday look, and with that I do my best to keep the real life kryptonite - moisture - away from my straight style. This product offers a wonderful smelling, and genius alternative to hairspray for those who can share my moisture issue. It's offers the hold that you need with the workability of achieving a desired hairstyle. Once I'm done with my current bottle, I'll be on my way to grab myself another.

This prodcut is really great for heat styling. It has a firm hold but leaves your hair bouncy. If you use it properly it will not make your hair very greasy. I found a bottle at the flea market for $5 so if you want to save $$ check out your local flea market. Good Luck!

This is truly the best spray wax I have found and I have tried quite a few. Gives my shoulder length, baby fine hair tons of volume. It doesn't cause a build up and I have had no problem washing it out. I have found it is best to use on almost dry hair - I pick up sections and spray underneath and then blow dry flipping my hair over, upside down. Love this product. A must have for baby fine hair!! I will definitley repurchase over and over again!

I agree it gets clogged alot and that it's expensive but I have been using it for so long and I will continue to do so. I loveeee ittt :)

I LOVE this spray wax. I've figured out the trick to using it, is to hold it away from your head and spray. The closer to your head, the more wax, in turn that 'greasy' feeling some of reviewers have mentioned. A little goes a long way.

I love this product! I have long fine but texturized hair. I spray one mist of this on each side of my hair, and one mist on the back from a safe distance. ALso aim for the midshaft towards the ends, not near the root. Then brush with a wide tooth comb, I like the big thick teeth on certain picks. My hair will literally take on the serperation of the comb, all the while smoothing and taming all my flyways! This is like the "gloss" all us fine haired fgirls have been waiting for. If u use very sparingly this si so much less likely to get greasy as a silicone based gloss.

I use this everyday.I spray it into my hands first rub it around and scrunch throught my ends and bangs. I swear by it and constantlyhave my clients use it. When it gets cloged ((and it will its and aresol can)) i just run it under hot water and its good to go again.. i will foreveruse this

Used once, on the second time it was clogged and no matter how much hot water and work you could not unclogged it. The product was fair but nothing to write home about, but spending that much on something I could use just once..... Well that just plain sucks!

I was given this for my short messy hair and ended up with a greasy, hard to get out mess! Not only did the spray can get clogged after a few uses, but even a tiny amount of this just gunked up my hair and took forever to get out! I guess I should have known better when my stylist saw me looking at the disply can and offered it to me free of charge because she and the other stylist didn't care to use it! Hmmmm....guess they were right! I'm just glad I didn't actually pay for this, because at $12.95 for a small can, I'd have been ticked!
