I had high hopes for this stuff. Did absoultely NOTHING for my hair. I think it might have even caused more frizz. I can tolerate the smell, typical Aussie Brand smell. I was expecting it to deliver what a hairspray might (especially since it says that on the bottle!) at least close to it, and it does not. I think it may have a better affect on dry hair than on wet/damp hair. At least it wasn't crazy expensive....UPDATE: Ok this works best on DRY hair. By best I mean it actually works like a hairspray should work. And probably not the best kind of hairspray... unless you want a flat, basic appearance this will help with that, but that's about it............. Will definitely pass up next time.

I'm pretty surprised by all the bad reviews for this product...I really like it! It comes in a tall purple bottle with some general information like the brand and small product description on the front and more in depth information on the back. I normally use this in the mornings before school or if I'm going to the beach (which I probably do about once a year...and I live in a beach town). As another reviewer mentioned, this is for waves, not curls. Catch the Wave is even written right on the bottle. I find that this product gives my hair a nice smell to it while providing it with a nice- but never crunchy -wave. Here's how I use it:-Before bed at night and after showering, I apply Paul Mitchel Super Skinny Serum to my hair and run it through.-Then I use the Aussie split end protecant and run that through my hair.-I use my blowdryer and the diffuser attatchment to dry my hair, but not take away my natrual waves.-When I wake up, I straighten my awkward too-long-to-be-bangs-but-too-short-to-be-face-frames and then spritz around five to seven squirts onto my hair (which reaches mid back. I should probably use more...) and scrunch my hair up and hold it in place for about twenty seconds. When I let it go, the spray helps form the waves, which then stay in place all day. I've been really happy with my hair since using this.Bottom line: It's a great product for us wavy haired girls, but I don't know if I'd buy it again. I'm always looking to try out new hair products, and while this is a nice product, I'd like to try more that claim to do the same thing.

I have straight hair, and I was hoping for a hairspray that I could use to help me achieve a beachy look. I first spray my dry hair with a seasalt spray, add in a texturizer, then I diffuse my hair. Lastly I add this hairspray. I find it a little too wet and not as much hold as I would like. Since my hair is straight and very hard to achieve the messy look, I need a hairspray with more hold. Not for me!

I purchased this product with the hopes that it would what it was made for. I have very thick hair, that has never held any styling, so my hopes weren't exactly high. Good thing, because other than making my hair smell great, this product is useless. I've followed all directions, and even explored the internet in hopes of finding some little trick to make it work. No luck!

I never got to see how this worked as the smell is so disgusting that I had to wash my hair at once. It smells like the deodorizer in a public toilet. Threw it away!

I'm kinda shocked at the reviews I'm seeing..I don't know if most girls haven't noticed, but they say they're complaining about no curls being held, that's because if you look at the bottle itself, its for WAVES only, hence why it says "catch the waves" I have natural wavy hair and I recently stopped straightening my hair because it was starting to grow so I had to change my style and get used to my hair. I found this spray and gave it a few small sprays the next morning and styled it accordingly to get the "Shakira-hair" since my hair isn't too crazy to handle and I LOVED IT! My hair still felt soft and very manageable by the end of the day. Some girls are complaining that it leaves a strange residue due to the formula change (or the amount of spray girls with curly hair use) , and I don't see it, since I only need a few small sprays and im set for the day. I suggest that the curly haired girls go find a much different spray formulated for curly haired women and I hope they find their holy grail of hair sprays:)Fortunately there was a sale at Walgreens so I got lucky with this bottle. Overall, I give it a 5/5 because of its good hold and since I don't need a lot of the formula in my hair, it keeps my natural hair feeling soft, and looking fun and sexy:) I really recommend it to girls with wavy locks who need that extra hold

i used to love this product but i think they have done something new to it..it used to leave my hair curly and smooth..and i have very thick hair so it was always hard to get the curly look w/o it looking crunchy..now this product does the same..it leaves it crunchy hard and very dry..you must wash your hair AS SOON as you get home or in the morning your hair is a big tangly mess..

Unfortunately, this product has been REFORMULATED by P&G and now leaves a white, chunky residue on my hair. I have used this product for many years, I am baffled why P&G would change the formula of this classic product (changing the scent was bad enough!) P&G has ruined the Aussie line since they took over. Too bad--it was once a great, inexpensive product. :-(
