Now I know what everyone is complaining about. I've read quite a few complaints about the clogged nozzle on Aussie's Mega hairspray and have advised people to just clean it after each use. I was wrong. I guess Aussie finally got around to changing the formulation of my hairspray, Aussie Instant Freeze. This is the umpteenth time they have changed it, and I have to tell you, it's starting to get on my nerves. Whatever the new ingredient in this formulation is, it behaves just like glue. It's so sticky that my head is actually stuck to the pillow in the morning. If anyone dares to smell my hair, it will make sniffing glue a thing of the past.
Just sniff hairspray! But here's the thing. It doesn't hold any better, it's just stickier! I can only assume that Aussie is using a cheaper ingredient in an attempt to cut costs. However, I think they will be cutting customers in the process.
I've been using Aussie products for at least twenty five years and have suffered through all the changes. I honestly don't know why I am so loyal, as I feel completely betrayed. This last change may be the one that puts me over the edge. As others have said, the nozzle is constantly clogged. You have to press so hard for the hairspray to come out, that when it finally does the force sends your hair into another galaxy.
It's so difficult to use that I just don't think I can continue to buy this product any longer. I never thought I'd say this, but I wish Procter and Gamble would cut Aussie's R&D budget. They seem to have more money than they know what to do with. Either that or they have too much time on their hands. Why can't they just leave well enough alone?
I have been using Aussie hairspray for many years now and am finding I am getting very frustrated with their product. The last 3 large size hairspray bottles have plugged up on me after a few uses. Run under hot water after every use and does no good. This product is not the cheapest and I cannot afford to keep throwing them away half way through. I am also very frustrated that I cannot find an email or way to contact them other than phone. I don't have all day to stay on hold. They really need to evaluate this and come up with better contact services. I am done buying this product till I know it is resolved...
SANDUSKY, OHIO -- I used to love Aussie products and they keep changing them over and over. Please where did the spritz pump bottle go? Now the instant freeze is in an aerosol, give me a break it's clogs constantly and now it's not working. I tried running it under hot water, pin in the whole to unclog nothing works. I still have half of a can left. What a rip off!
4 cans of hair spray I bought in the last year have had clogged hair spray nozzles and cannot be used. I also recently purchased a can of Mousse and when I pushed down on the dispenser it broke off the can and is unusable. I am wasting too much money. I like the product and that is why I have put up with these issues this long. I have been using Aussie products for many years and do like the results, but I can no longer afford to throw money away on faulty products. If it has happened to me this many times in 1 year, I can only imagine this happening to a lot of other people. I am not sure I will be a loyal patron to this company any longer.
I have used Aussie for years and for some reason the last couple of cans I have purchased have worked for almost a week and then the sprayer gets clogged and I can no longer use this product. This only happens in the large cans of Aussie Hairspray. This is costing me to much and I really enjoy this hairspray compared to others. I guess am going to have to start buying a new product.
CINCINNATI, OHIO -- I have used Aussie Flexible hairspray faithfully for at least 10 years and for some reason the last 5 cans have clogged up to the point they couldn't be used again after only a few uses! This is no longer affordable! I tried every remedy for clogged nozzles I could find and finally gave up! Can this be corrected?
301 EAST 6TH STREET, CINCINNATI, OHIO -- I, too, have used Aussie Mega Hair Spray for years and struggled with the nozzle clogging. After returning the product twice to the store, I was determined to get the 3rd can to work as I did not want to change hair spray. I replace the nozzle with one from another aerosol product (cleaning it thoroughly, of course). Tah Dah!! It works great, now.
I have had a similar experience with Aussie hairspray. I have been using it for years with no problem and the past three purchases have resulted in disappointment. The nozzle clogs and it cannot be cleared by running it under hot water as suggested. I just contacted them by emailing the address found on the can to voice my complaint. I am anxiously awaiting a response.
