I tried all brands of hair spray and finally found the Dove (In the white and BLUE can) several years ago. It was not sticky, it did not dry out my hair and kept things together with a natural look. Was there something in the product you discovered was not safe to use? This new version is AWFUL!!! It leaves my hair feeling and looking stiff. And it dries it out! Zero added shine.
Makes more sense to put a new product out and see if your customers like it before removing the old. You could have grabbed some new clients with the new version as well as kept your current ones. Now you are loosing all your old loyal customers with few purchasing the new version. Poor business decision, such a shame.
Now off hunting for a new favorite.
Will come back if the "old version" is released.
For at least the past 6 months, I have thrown out every other can or so of this Dove Hair Spray. It spits out stuff that doesn't hold and after that, the spray top and tube just don't work anymore. I can use a toothpick to clean it and a toothbrush to scrub the spray cap and it doesn't get better. I will no longer waste my money on this product but will find one that stinks and is sticky instead. Dove, I will miss you as I have been with you for so very long.
What happened to the old formula? I have never understood why companies change their product, when the old one was great. Besides leaving my hair sticky and gummy, the smell is horrible. I thought I would get used it, but no way! It has a very sweet smell and is overwhelming. Bring back the blue can in flexible hold.
FOR SOME REASON DOVE CHANGED THEIR OLD FORMULA FLEXIBLE HAIRSPRAY (IN THE BLUE CAN) TO THIS NIGHTMARE. THIS HAIRSPRAY LITERALLY STINKS! AWFUL, AWFUL SICKENING ODOR AND PUTS A FILM ON MY CONTACT LENSES. ON TOP OF THAT YOU CAN LITERALLY TASTE IT IN YOUR MOUTH AFTER YOU SPRAY YOUR HAIR. WHAT GENIUS THOUGHT THIS ONE UP? BRING BACK THE OLD FORMULA -- IF IT AIN'T BROKE -- DON'T TRY TO FIX IT! CHECK OUT ALL THE ONE STAR REVIEWS ALONG WITH THE COMPLAINTS ON AMAZON, DRUGSTORE.COM, ETC. I HAVE NOT SEEN ONE POSITIVE REVIEW ON THIS NEW FORMULA HAIRSPRAY. I CALLED DOVE CUSTOMER SERVICE ABOUT THIS PRODUCT AND THEY SAID THEY HAVE BEEN GETTING RAVE REVIEWS ON THIS HAIRSPRAY -- (I DON'T BELIEVE IT). THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE IS VERY NICE AND THEY REFUNDED MY MONEY AND ALSO SENT ME FREE PRODUCT COUPONS, ETC. PLEASE LADIES CALL DOVE CUSTOMER SERVICE AND PLACE YOUR COMPLAINTS. THERE IS POWER IN NUMBERS!
For some reason, Dove decided to change their hairspray formula. WHY??? The old was perfect. I have used Dove for years, and was always satisfied. NOT ANYMORE.
A few weeks ago, I bought a can like normal. When I used it, a horrible smell came out. It was so bad, that I had a headache for several hours. I even had to get the bath towel that I had used earlier and rub it all over my head to get rid of the stink. I thought it was a fluke, so a few days later, I bought another can. This smell wasn't as strong, but it was still HORRIBLE. It smelled like an old lady. I don't want to smell like an old lady. And because the smell is so bad, I can't use my normal amount. And since I can't use the normal amount, my hair is constantly in my face.
I will be buying groceries this week and I WILL NOT buy another can of this hairspray.
I have read negative reviews about this product so I was reluctant to use it. I found that it holds my curls all day long and does not leave them sticky or crunchy. It will not give you helmet head. It does not have a hairspray odor and will not leave any weird residue on your hair. I will be purchasing this product again.
I have been a loyal Dove Hairspray user for years. I saw the new packaging but didn't realize the product had changed until I used it & WOW! do I LOVE it! Much softer on my hair, flexible and the scent is lovely! I really appreciate the new anti-clog spray nozzle as well. Good job DOVE! Looking forward to trying more products.
I have at least 4 cans of hair spray for my fine and thinning hair. They all give me helmet head and change my color because of the alcohol. I decided to try Dove Style&Care flex hold hair spray mostly because the price was great. I am thrilled. My hair holds all day and is soft to the touch. I have been using for 2 weeks and no build up either. I love their thermal styling protection product, too.
My hair is extremely fine and most hairsprays "slip off" my hair or they are sticky and leave your hair like a board.
This product doesn't smell and last.
Thumbs up Dove!!!
The flexible hairspray allows you to style and hold without stiffness, and then finish with the extra hold spray, but I have been unable to find this product for the past month.
I love this product , it is manageable and holds my fine hair very well. Please do not discontinue it
I did love this hairspray until the scent was changed.
Please change the scent back to the light pleasant
scent. The new musky scent is to strong and nauseating. I will be returning the 3 cans of spray I have on hand for a refund and have to find another
product with a more pleasant scent. Please Please
change back to the scent introduced when the new
pink can was introduced. I also use Dove Shampoo and Conditioner and love them.
After being a loyal Dove conditioner and Dove soap customer I decided to give this spray a try since the spray I used in the past was discontinued (another brand). I must say, I fell in love. This is definitely my new go-to whenever I need frizz-free all-day hold that smells fresh and clean. The smell is NOT overwhelming at all to me and I suffer from migraines. It is nice, fresh, and a little bit soft and powdery like all Dove products. The formula is not as "flexible" as it advertises but it gives you all-day hold which withstands the horrible NYC summer humidity. It rinses off fairly easily in the shower if you properly wash your hair. Hair might get a little bit dried out (as with most hairsprays) but Dove conditioner does an excellent job at replenishing any lost moisture. I highly recommend this to anyone with thicker, oily hair as it looks and feels very fresh, straight-out-of-the-shower, doesn't weigh hair down, and it lasts for as long as you are out and about. Will most certainly purchase this again and again! Thank you Dove for making yet another wonderful product!!
LOVE the NEW formula!!!! I have the OLD can and hate it; threw it out! The stuff was awful and did not smell well at all either. The new formula is exactly what I have been looking for. The hold is perfect for my hair type!!!! I am surprised to hear about all the remarks of disappointment in the new formula; I love it and it seems to be popular because I have a hard time finding it in stock in some stores. I buy a few bottles at a time. Please do NOT change the formula; the smell, hold and price all are PERFECT!!!!!!! Thank you!!!!!!!
I love your products! But I just bought this new hairspray and was super bummed about the smell. This new smell is too strong and more masculine than feminine. Please bring back the old, light and fun smell.
Unfortunately, now I have to buy a new bottle from another brand because the smell is too strong and unflattering. I really hope the old scent is back on the markets soon. Really, please! Thank you.
I'LL BE BUYING THIS PRODUCT THE REST OF MY NATURAL LIFE.
I love the hairspray it's amazing I always get compliments about the smell never had an issue with it. It holds great. I love dove all around shampoo and body wash .
I could never get my bangs to stay styled before thus product. I love that it can be brushed through & touched up over & over again.if I need to. Before I used this, my bangs would literally look like they were glued to my forehead by the end of the day! Looove it!
Love this hairspray. It's lightweight enough that my hair isn't glued to my head but it still has enough holding power. You can brush through it and your hair doesn't feel gunky. Wish it lasted longer in my house!
The only hairspray that holds my style and I can still run my fingers through my hair!!! You should see how many other products I have tried!
