Great Product for Me

Great spray for my curly hair! Holds the curls, cuts way down on the frizz! Doesn't make my scalp itch! Doesn't flake and washes out! What more can you ask!! The scent takes getting use to, but it works so well for me that I have embraced it :)

I have been a loyal customer for many year and have used the Diamatress shampoo and conditioner, as well as the mousse and this maximum hairspray. My thin, fine, straight hair is very picky about what I use on it. I have always been unhappy each time when the all of the products I used have been changed, but have found a way to eventually adjust. However, the newest formula change to the Maxximum Finishing Mist is just terrible and makes it unusable for my hair. It is too wet and heavy and I can barely brush it out of my hair. I need a hairspray that holds well without weighing down my hair. I'm very disappointed and am feeling that I need to switch brands. Why do you change the formula of a product that works well and that I assume is selling well?

Pump mist

I have been using the mist spray pump and now I am unable to buy it. I hate the can spray, it won't brush out of my hair and I have buildup. My hair is breaking from me brushing it. Please bring it back because I have tried other brands and nothing works.

I love this spray, after an hour you can comb it, run your fingers through it and your style stays.

I also am disappointed with the new hairspray. I used the old pump spray for as long as I can remember (not a fan of aerosols) and absolutely don't like the new version. I liked the fact that the previous spray had little scent and didn't leave my hair stiff. Also it is very difficult to brush out. Please bring the old one back or I may have to change brands.

Product Changing Again???

I originally used the Maxximum "Superior Hold" in the gold can and loved it. It then changed to the Maxximum "Extraordinary Hold" in the pink can and it is not as good, but it still had some holding power. I went to the store yesterday, grabbed the Maxximum pink can, thinking it was the same thing, but now the can says Maxximum "Finishing Spray Strong Hold". At first I thought I just grabbed the wrong product but the UPC number on the can is the same. This product has no hold at all. I am in Texas and the weather changes by the second so I need a stronger hold. Is this product replacing the others? I don't want to switch brands but this product was literally like spraying water in my hold AT ALL. HELP...please don't change our products again.

I used the old pump spray version of this spray for over a decade. There was a reason why I have never been a fan of aerosol hair sprays... lack of control and directionality. Since I have had to use this can of recent, I have regularly had one disapointing hair day after another. I am sad to say, I will have to go looking for another product very soon. Really wish you folks wouldn't mess up a great thing, just to do smothing,"New and Improved." Please bring back the pump spray.

I have to say, I'm more than disappointed, I'm disgusted with whatever Nexxus did to change my favorite hairspray. What I loved about the previous mixture was that it was a strong hold without feeling like there was anything on my hair. Now it doesn't hold as well, feels sticky, and comes out so hard that it moves my hair when it sprays. I HATE the new formula.

I have been using Nexxus hairspray for at least 10 years and have been beyond happy with its hold, lack of scent and the fact that it was easy to brush out and left no residue on my hair. I started using a can of the new Maxximum Extraordinary Hold finishing mist last week and the spray left a lot of residue in my hair and worse, it was almost impossible to brush out without breaking my hair. I opened another new can of Extraordinary Hold finishing mist a few days later, hoping the first can had a problem, but the second can was just like the first. I hope that Nexxus will consider adjusting its new formula so that the results are fantastic once again.

Love, loved, LOVED the non-areosol pump Maxximum spray--no residue, excellent hold. Those disappeared in 2014, I think, and I stockpiled what I could find. Am about to run out and tried the new stuff--UGH. What a stench. Plus, aerosol!!! PLEASE BRING BACK THE GREAT SPRAY IN THE PUMP BOTTLE!!!!!

Best Hairspray on the market, in my opinion!

I LOVE this product. It is very light, however it gives my hair so much body and hold. I have very fine, thin hair. I have to use products that really work. This really works. It lasts a good part of the day (longer than any other hairspray I've tried). It is obviously a little pricey, but so worth it! I will not go back to anything else. Oh, one more thing. It really only takes a few sprays. I don't feel like I'm having to use 1/2 the can to get my hair to do what I want. One more thing, it smells good...not too strong! I know you will enjoy it as much as I do.

Love Nexxus products. My favorite was the pump maximum superior hold finishing spray. Unfortunately the formula has changed. The new scent is horrible!! Smells like cheap perfume and interferes with the fragrance I Wear. So disappointed!!

I used a gold can for years, and loved it. Now I tried for the first time, and I would't tell the difference at all. I don't understand the other review. I tried half head and half head, and just can't say. It's the best on the market for fine hair which needs to be hold in place.  After it's totally dry I use fingers just to fluff it up a little bit to look it natural.

The hold works well, but it is leaving a white residue on my cell phone, desk phone and my eye glasses. And if I brush my hair the dry white particle show on my clothes. I will change to another brands.

I love Nexxus products. I have been using The Maximum superior hold finishing mist in the GOLD CAN for quite some time now and was impressed with it's performance. However, after trying their new Maxximum Extraordinary hold in the PINK CAN I found that it does NOT hold my hair at all. Disappointed ... going back to the store.

This is by far the best hairspray ever. You do not need much to get the desired hold and it doesn't make your hair look like it's coated. I am a hairdresser and have thick coarse hair myself. I have tried every hairspray I can possibly try-professional and off the drug store shelf. I get complements on my hair daily now. Every single day.

The BEST hairspray ever

I love this product!! By far, the best hairspray I've ever used. I have very thin hair that's difficult to style. Other hairsprays don't hold as well, or last as long. But this product helps me maintain my style the entire day. Plus, it doesn't have an overbearing fragrance like some others (that I refer to as "smelling like Raid").
