This hands-down the best hairspray I've ever used. It doesn't leave my hair sticky at all, and it doesn't give my hair that sort of wet lacquered look that so many others do. It used to smell horrible, now it smells like orange candy.

I have thick, color-treated, long, wavy hair that I heat style every day. Here's how I use it:
After lightly curling the long parts of my hair, I pin the top 1/4 inch of hair on the back of my head out of the way, then tease an inch chunk of hair at the root. I spray this lightly with Samy to set it. I unpin the top hair, and smooth it out to cover the teased parts and spray this lightly as well. Then I straighten my bangs, these get a misting as well. Last, I generously spray my curls and shake them out so they are defined, but big and pretty.

I always get amazing, natural looking volume and all day hold this way. It doesn't look like I'm wearing any product at all. No other hairspray gives me these results. I think where people run into problems with this hairspray is they expect to be able to achieve volume with just product. I can easily see someone using way too much if they aren't using any styling techniques, but instead just blast their roots with hairspray.

Horrible Smell

Gives volume but the smell is horrible. I will continue using it until I finish the bottle. I wil be looking around for one that doesn't smell as bad.

    Comments about Samy Skyscraper Volumizing Hairspray, 9.75 oz:

    I love this hair spray! You can really shape your hair before it dries and it smells devine. Rey fresh scent. I hope Samy doesn't stop making or change this product like he has so many of his other products.

      I use this hairspray when I need a little firmer hold than Elnett supplies. It holds my hair in place all day.

        I was happy to discover this hairspray. The spray is extremely fine. I also like Elnett by L'Oreal. Although I think Elnett works a bit better, this is less expensive and smells better. Both are very light weight but keep your style in place.

                It's great if you know how to professionally backcomb (I suck at this), but to get volume from this hairspray is next to impossible. Everything ends up totally sticky and a big mess. I will never buy this again.

                    I had been using this product for years and it WAS "GREAT". it made my hair shiny ,full of body, and soft holding up All day!. NOT THE CASE NOW. I'm not sure what has happened to the formula,but it is as if the product is defective in my opinion.

                    I use for daily styling. It offers great hold without feeling crunchy and there is no buildup (as with all the SAMY products I have tried). For extra volume, I spray and then use a quick, low dose of heat from my blow dryer, while styling with my hands. Subtle, pleasant fragrance. Highly recommend.
