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 saw advertisement about how this holds hair in place, so I bought it instead of my usual product that I love. I have curly hair that I like to wear big, and this product does not work at all, just a sticky mess. The worst part is the over powering stench. I can't believe that some people think it smells good. Even if it worked, which it doesn't, the stink would make me never buy it again. The only use for this product would be poison for a gas chamber. I would never buy another samy product.

          I love the lightness of the spray. The nozzle puts out a fine mist so you can layer it for a firm hold without the helmet look. I have received complements on my perfume when all I was wearing was tons of this hairspray. The scent is very earthy and natural smelling. This is great stuff!

            My hair came out great using this hairspray. I received 2 compliments at work today. My hair is thinning, and honestly, you couldn't tell. I think it smells nice, I don't have a problem with the smell at all. I will buy more of this product.

            Comments about Samy Skyscraper Volumizing Hairspray, 9.75 oz:

            My hair is baby fine, thin and graying; this is the best hairspray have ever found that actually holds without being stiff, sticky, or leaving any flaky residue. No more helmet hair for me! Use in conjunction with the volumizing shampoo, volumizing conditioner & volumizing mousse with excellent results; products did not yellow my gray hair. Highly recommend.

            This is great, great stuff! It gives my curly hair great volume without being stiff, and holds while allowing hair to have motion.
