I really like this hairspray a lot. I almost never use product, let alone hairspray, as I have very straight hair that never does much of anything, no matter what I try to get it to do. I bought this because I wanted a hairspray that will keep a tight, slick ponytail super-sleek but without looking crunchy or gross. This definitely does that job great! I simply pull my hair back nice and smooth, and let loose with the spray and it stays for ages, until I purposely undo it! It never looks crusty or crunchy, and leaves my hair looking naturally perfect. I don't mind the smell; in fact, I kind of like it. I don't know how to describe the scent other than "hairspray," but it doesn't linger at all, so if it bothers you, it'll be done in a few seconds. I paid about $18USD-ish I believe for a HUGE can which has lasted me several months, and I'm sure will last at least half the summer. This is a great investment for me, since I'm so unfussy with my hair - great hold, no crunch, easy to brush through if needed, and great value!
