It seems as though all of my hair care products that I have been using for well over a decade are either being discontinued or "changed" in some way.
Earlier this year it was my Aura Humectant Pomade. I switched to Aura's pomade after finding that it did the same job as the Aveda at about 1/4th the price. As it appears to have been discontinued, I have been forced to buy several years supply from Ebay. (Though I have noticed it on clearance at several beauty supply stores online.)
And now it's my beloved Aussie Sprunch Spray. I recently bought a new bottle from Target, noticing that the packaging had changed and that the bottle was smaller. Then I went to use it and found (ugh) to my dismay, that the signature grape small had been replaced by something that resembles cheap bubble bath, and that it's not really working to hold my curls intact. What the heck? That Aussie smell was GLORIOUS - it always drew comments of, "What's that great smell?" And now it's gone... I called the customer service number this morning and was told that the formula and fragrance was changed as a result of consumer studies. Pfffffft. No one asked me. I just hope that I'm not the only one that notices and that others will complain because I want my Aussie back! #FAIL!
