I give this spray a solid F- : I would so love to give this spray a lower grade… this spray SUCKS! From the scent with is heavily perfumed and smells like cheap hair spray, to the stickiness that this spray leaves in the hair (it was super sticky like having Auquanet in your hair) and the way it weights down the hair.
