I have been using V05 firm hold hairspray for years. Recently I bought a new can and have found it is leaving white residue in my hair to the point people are pointing it out to me. Even after washing... my hair it is still noticeable, the only way to get it out is to use a fine comb to brush it out.
Unfortunately have had to resort to purchasing a different brand. Can you please tell me if there has been a change in the formula or is it likely have a dodgy batch? The numbers on the bottom of the can are MF6120218 23:46 B127031 .. I look forward to hearing from you as i would like to go back to using this product 😊

I had been using VO5 Give Me Volume spray for the last few years and absolutely loved it. Worked really well for my fine hair and made my hair feel fresh even on day two. So what happened? I can't fin...d it anymore and think I am going mad. I know it was called that but cannot find it in Australia or online. I am disappointed with the other products I have tried in its replacement, both VO5 and other more expensive products. Please help...... See More

I've been using your Pump gel spray for longer than I care to remember with only one problem, which is the spray hole can get blocked from time to time, but easily remedied by a quick rinse under warm... water. The last two I bought have however, been spraying direct jets instead of the usual mist from the first use. I can't remove the top as they seem to be a sealed unit, so I'm unable to rectify it. It's just not acceptable, and I can't go back to the retailer as I no longer have the receipt. I would appreciate your earliest response to my problem. See More

I have used VO5 Pump Hairspray for many years but now cannot buy it anywhere. I have been told it is new packaging & is called Gel Spray now. This is not the same as the hairspray, it's a heavier cons...istency & no good for my fine hair. The Hairspray is now only available in a pressurized can ! Bad move VO5, won't buy it in a pressurized can, so moving to another brand in a pump spray :( See More

Could anyone tell me where I can buy vo5 texture spray in Christchurch. It used to be in a pink aerosol can then changed to blue, now I can't find it anywhere. I haven't found anything else that compares.

I've been buying your hairspray for around 10 years now as its the only one that doesn't make my hair sticky but I have bought two cans in the last month and the nozzle has been defective to the point... where it keeps coming off and also it is dripping excessively when I spray which has now stained clothing. It is making my hair wet and sticky as big blobs keep dripping in my hair. And the can all around the top is getting sticky like glue and I have pictures to show. I have just bought a third can within two months but havent tried it yet if the same happens with this one I'm going to have to look for another brand. Ever since you have redesigned the bottle ive had problems and I work hard for my money for me to keep wasting it on hairspray and to be throwing half bottles away. See More

For years I have been using your products on my hair and have never had any complaints at all.
For many a year I have been using your VO5 Texturising Gum and have found it to be perfect for what I nee...d. However, I recently visited the UK from Australia and couldn't find any in my local supermarket (no complaints of you) so I was forced to purchase the VO5 Thicken Up Lifting Paste. Well. It blew my socks off. This product is truly amazing, and instantly made me want to switch to it over the usual Texturising Gum that I had become accustomed to. Imagine my disappointment though, upon my return to Australia to find that no supermarkets or pharmacies (Woolworths, Coles, IGA, Wizard Pharmacy, Price Line Pharmacy) stock it. I am yet to find this new (to me) product anywhere.
So, with that in mind, can you tell me, is this product not available in Australia, or, do the main supermarkets and pharmacies choose not to stock it?
I would very much like to find somewhere that does, but don't really want to have to travel back to the UK just to get some. As good as the product is, I can't justify that expense. I am located in Perth, Western Australia.
I look forward to hearing from you.
I located the following codes from the base of the tin, for your reference. (617021B A barcode 8712561659000)

Recently tried your Extreme Style [mattClay] (new and improved look). Smells nice enough in the tin and works really well however after a couple of hours in the hair the smell turns to rust... Not jus...t a once off, have given it a go a few times as it works well however I've had to stop as you just can't get past the smell of rust after a while.
Also the website advertised on the back of the tin - vo5extremestyle.c.a could not be reached...

Dear VO5,

In regards to you 'Texturing Gum', what did you change?...
Now after an hour it turns into a greasy stands of hair, lacking definition and hold. Compared of course to the previous gummy hold that lasted for ages *My Profile picture ;)

I'm a heavy buyer, but now you've dropped from my repertoire completely and I'm buying this Garnier Fructis stuff, which still isn't up to scratch.

Please change it back! Please
Or can i buy the old stuff, under the table deal, i'll pay cash?

I love your heat protect spray but why did you need to change the nozzle. I don't know what the point size of your black type is on your magenta bottle but it's definitely not clear with the naked eye... and I don't even wear glasses! I needed to take a photo of the label and enlarge it to work out how to use the nozzle. Was the old pump pack so bad? #painedandpuzzled See More

I have used VO5 hairspray for years but I am so disappointed with the new design cans (sublime sleek, creation hairspray) 2nd can brought in last month and only managed to use 1/2 a can as once again ...a defective nozzle � I work hard for my money and can't afford or justify to keep throwing it at faulty products very unfair , looks like I have to find another brand as seems to be a reoccurring fault � See More

For a long time I used your dry shampoo.It worked amazing and smelt amazing.
For around a month I couldn't find it anywhere and was excited to see you had released a new range of it when I went to... the supermarket last week. However really disappointed that it barely works and even worse the smell i close to the smell of fly spray and even being out in the fresh air all day its all I could smell.. will have to use another brand now See More

I've used your smoothly does it range for a few years now and always been happy with the results. Now is seems that the formula has changed and my hair is a ball of frizz even though it's advertised a...s 'curl defining mousse' for 'bouncy, frizz free curls'.
I don't think my curls have ever been less defined than they are now. Very unhappy that I've wasted money trying to find the right product to use in this range. Nothing now seems to work.

Where did the pink hairspray go with raspberry scents? Was the best spray I have ever used with a nice non-chemical scent but now they are nowhere to be found in Australia. 💔💔💔

Does V05 still produce a non-aerosol leave-in conditioner? If so, who would stock it in New Zealand? I used to get one from Countdown in a blue bottle, I see a product similar on google: V05 Salon ser...ies simply stunning leave-in conditioner. Have attempted calling the 0800 number as well.
