There's not a lot of options to control guys' hair. You go into the typical drugstore and there's a tiny area for mens' hair products. You can grease it, gel it or spray it, and as someone previously said, the drugstores only seem to order a bottle or two of Vitalis at a time.

I've been using this brand for several decades now. One of the things that attracted my wife to me was when Vitalis made the scented version. Also they previously had lighter hold and stronger hold products. Now they just make this one version. But it works! It holds down fly-away straight hair and keeps it in place all day so I don't look like Moe from the 3 Stooges. The only negative comment I can say is that in heavy rain your hair will look a bit like a helmet head but it's either that or looking like a wet cat. And it seems to be the only product like it available to men.

I've been using unscented Vitalis Maximum Hold for many years, but this new version is enough to make me switch brands to something else. This stuff is horrid compared to the older version in the gray bottle. It is NOT unscented, regardless of what the label says. The unpleasant smell permeates the entire house within minutes and stays with you for hours. The new formula clogs the nozzle constantly, requiring rinsing in hot water to clear it. This spray also irritates my scalp and skin, unlike the old version. I will not be buying this stuff again.

    Comments about Vitalis Maximum Hold Hairspray for Men, Pump, Unscented, 8 fl oz:

    Vitalis hair spray holds my straight hair in place without making it appear to be "shellacked" like some other men's hair sprays I have tried, or greased like gels and other products.

    Comments about Vitalis Maximum Hold Hairspray for Men, Pump, Unscented, 8 fl oz:

    The new stuff is too sticky. I never want to shellac my hair. Whatever happened to the one they called "The Pump", in the green bottle which they called "natural hold"? That was the best I ever used. After shampooing, towel-drying and combing, one could spray still wet hair. Then comb it and even spray it again... nice all day. Who makes the stuff anyway? Why in the world would they cut out a winning product?

    I've been using hair sprays my entire life (I'm 55) and this is the very best by a long shot. It looks entirely natural; it's unscented and, most importantly, holds your hair in place through a hurricane. Sometimes it doesn't pump perfectly but, overall, this stuff is worth gold!

    Comments about Vitalis Maximum Hold Hairspray for Men, Pump, Unscented, 8 fl oz:

    After using the blue pump for years and years I am definitely disappointed in the new black and red bottled VITALIS. To me it smells horrible and doesn't hold like the old blue pump Vitalis. I think Vitalis should go back to the old formula and the blue container.

    Comments about Vitalis Maximum Hold Hairspray for Men, Pump, Unscented, 8 fl oz:

    The new version leaves a terrible taste in your mouth if you happen to inhale it and it floats inthe air so it is hard to avoid it. I find it holds better with less spray, but it shoot out in more of a stream than a mist unless you push real hard and fast. Switching the contents to the old bottle hasn't helped somehow. The old version was better overall.

    The new Max Vitalis hairspray is terrible...it produces white flakes, has a bad smell to it, and does not hold like the old gray bottle.

    Comments about Vitalis Maximum Hold Hairspray for Men, Pump, Unscented, 8 fl oz:

    I've been using the older gray bottle for many years. It was the standard for hairspray. It holds and produces no smell. This newer version is a disaster. Not only does it not hold as good, it shoots straight into my hair(instead of a soft wide fume), produces white flakes faster, and last it smells like chemical. This is not a case of me needing to dig out the empty gray bottle out of the trash and pour the new bottle's liquid in, this newer version is a big step backward. It looks like I will have to look for a different brand.

    Hubby reports that something about this product has drastically changed since they switched the packaging from a blue to black bottle. He said it leaves a flaky residue on his hair that was not experienced with the old product. The flakiness also falls from the hair onto clothing. Not recommended.
