I buy only non-aerosol products (aerosol cans are not recyclable in my town) so my choice gets limited. But with this hair spray, I am not sacrificing quality. It works great and holds all day. The scent is mild and I even find that the quality of the pump is excellent--a fine mist, no spurting or dripping. Now Dove hair care products are cruelty free! I will continue to buy this as long as they make it.
