I use this particular Scrunch sray on my roots of my hair after blow-dring hair. I then curl my hair to my style and use other spray products (Freeze and Shine)Big Sexy Hair. Then I Love to use this Scrunch by spraying it into my fingers to then define different pieces of my hair to give the bangs area or other pieces a piece-y look. In place of using those styling pastes(that usually then you can't restyle those pasted pieces after. It works well to hold your hair. I am a Hairspry fanatic. Used other Aussie's but I really love this. Like I said it works Great as a Root Lifter.

This used to be THE best hairspray back in the 80s and early 90s. It smelled wonderful, was never sticky, added shine, held every hair in place, held up in humidity, and washed out easily. BUT, with all the reformulations over the years, this stuff is nothing but dollar store junk now. First of all, the smell is now HORRIBLE. It must have a ton of alcohol in it now because it dries out my hair completely. I use hairspray everyday, and with this stuff, I would have to use some kind of clarifying shampoo to get it out. And even with that kind of shampoo, it was still extremely difficult to get my hair completely clean. It doesn't hold well, and it turns sticky in humidity. You know the old saying "If it ain't broke, don't fix it!!"?? After trying NUMEROUS sprays looking for the perfect replacement (even the highest rated products here), I tried TRESemme Tres Two #4 all day humidity resistance pump spray and the angels sang! OMG, why didn't I try it before? It is nothing but perfection-does everything the original sprunch spray did and more. And, No I am not employed with TRESemme!

Comments about Aussie Catch the Wave Sprunch Hair Spray, Strong Hold, 8.5 fl oz:

I used to use the pump hairspray all the time until I noticed that any overspray was removing the paint from my bathroom walls. I went back to the aerosol. I went to the pump originally to help save the ozone layer but since I was about the only one doing that, I couldn't see persuing it any longer.

Comments about Aussie Catch the Wave Sprunch Hair Spray, Strong Hold, 8.5 fl oz:

Sprunch Spray has been reformulated and does not perform as well as it used to. It's stickier and harder to use, and it now leaves white chunks of product in the hair, when the previous formula was flake-free. I hope P&G will go back to the old formula (Aussie hasn't been the same since they took over the company), if not, I will try some of the suggested replacement products given by the other reviewers. Too bad. It used to be a great, inexpensive product. :-(

                this product is light on your hair, I use to give me a quick & easy style to my hair. It's great for scrunching and adding a little style to my otherwise hard to manage hair. It's also non-aerosol which is great for the environment and my bathroom! No sticky film on everything.

                    The formula has been changed - THIS STUFF STINKS!! It made me dizzy and light headed until 2 hours after the first application - I puked like the exorcist. I used this product for years. This is not the same product. Aussie will refund you - find their site and tell them how horrible it is.

                    I switched to Jirmack unscented. Works great!
