Why oh why did Sebastian mess with a good thing? Shaper Plus had been my HG hairspray for at least 15 years. I seriously never even considered purchasing anything else. And now....well, now....not so much. It doesn't hold, it doesn't smell as nice, it just is not anything special any more. I need to find a new HG and I never thought I'd have to. I've already tried a few and they all fell short. I shake my fist in anger at Sebastian for trying to fix something that wasn't broken!!! Dang. The search continues. Someone please find us original SP lovers a replacement! : ) Edit - 1/11/08 - Ladies, I think I've found a replacement. It may be too soon to tell, but I'm really liking the Thermafuse hairspray (my salon just started carrying the line b/c they discontinuted carrying Pureology - Thermafuse is another one of those sulfate-free lines....anyway....this stuff holds really, really well - better than ANY I have tried since trying to find a replacement for Sebastian - it's not sticky or gunky either. I'm really impressed so far. The smell is really nice too....this could be the winner. Will keep you updated....

This used to be my HG of hairsprays. It would hold any style I did to my hair, all day long.

But the last 2 or 3 cans I've had didn't work the same. My hair would "fall" by mid-afternoon. From reading below, I see that the formula changed. I asked my hair stylist and she had no clue. Unless you want to carry a can around all day and respray every few hours, I would not recommend this NEW formula.

I will not repurchase the NEW Shaper Plus. I'm off to find another HG hairspray.

The NEW Shaper Plus is one of the worst hairsprays I've used. As the other reviewers, I also used this faithfully for 5 years and loved it. Whatever they have done to reformulate has made me start searching for a new favorite!!

Glad to hear it's not just me. I've used this for about 15 years or more, and the last 2 cans (jumbo of course) just aren't working like it used to. I could do just about anything to my hair and this would hold it all day and I could still brush it out at night, or the next morning and restyle and go. What a disappointment! Yeah the nozzle clogged every once in awhile and you had to run some hot water over it, but it was worth it. I've tried about 6 replacements, from Big Sexy Hair to Ojon, and have finally bought a second can of Kenra Volume Spray. It's the closest I've found so far but you can use too much, and it's generally that last spray you wish you'd left in the can, and now your hair looks SPRAYED. Oh well, the hunt continues.

Generally I don't like using hairspray, but this one is quite ok. Doesen't make hair stiff, allthough it looks kind of dry. What I really don't like abput the product is the smell.

I have been using this product since it first came out. They changed the formula! Does not hold my hair the way it used to and I find myself using more. Any suggestions for a replacement?

I just started using hairspray recently because I use velcro rollers to give me the volume I covet, so I don't have much experience with different brands of hairspray yet, other than Big Sexy Hair. That was a disappointment. I bought Shaper Plus because of the good reviews on here and it says on the can that it's supposed hold up all day and it's humidity resistant. So far it's proved to be a flexible hold, letting my hair keep it's bounce. Moreover, it's not heavy and stiff. It doesn't weigh my hair down like the hairspray I mentioned. I don't feel like I really have anything in my hair. Also, I'm very happy that this has done a pretty good job of holding up in humid weather, like in Houston where I live. I'm still going to search and see if I can't find better. Until then, I'm gonna continue using this.

This is my favorite hairspray. It keeps my straightened curly bangs tamed and frizz-free without feeling stiff or sticky. After trying dozens of other brands, I always come back to this.

I really like the original Shaper hairspray but this one falls a little short to me. Also ladies, when you buy any of the hairspray products, make sure you have someone that works where you're buying it test spray the product for you. These bottles were causing some trouble and not spraying correctly a while back when I worked at Trade Secret. They shouldn't have a problem testing the can for you so ask.
