Pros: Enriched with V. E and ProVitamin B5
Lasting hold without stiffness
Cons: Temporarily discontinued
I panicked when I went to my local pharmacy to pick up a bottle of Jhirmack Unscented Extra Hold Hairspray and the shelf was bare! I have been using this hairspray for years and my last bottle was nearly empty. I asked the sales clerk when the store would receive their next delivery. To my dismay, there was not going to be a delivery, for this fabulous hair spray was being discontinued!
I immediately went home and contacted the company via the toll free telephone number listed on the bottle. I questioned whether my pharmacy was going to discontinue selling the hair spray, or if the company was going to discontinue manufacturing the product. Sadly, the representative on the phone told me that new owners had bought the company and being Jhirmack hair spray wasn’t selling that well, they decided to discontinue manufacturing the product.
I pleaded with the lady on the other end of the phone, that I needed to have this hair spray! She told me many people have called and stated my exact feelings and where was everybody when the product sat on the shelves?!. She did say the new owners may begin to produce the Jhirmack Unscented Extra Hold Hairspray in the future, but it wouldn’t be available until the end of this year or the beginning of 2012.
I went back to the pharmacy which has a chain of several stores throughout NE Ohio and the clerk began to contact all of the other stores in the surrounding area to see how many bottles of Jhirmack Extra Hold Unscented Hair spray they had left on their shelves. She found eight bottles of the hair spray and had them delivered to the store I usually patronize. I had to pay for all eight bottles in advance which I was glad to do.
The clerk called me yesterday and said all eight bottles of my hair spray had arrived and I picked them up last night. Right now, I am in Jhirmack Heaven! I am sure these eight bottles will last me until the new owners of the company begin production again.
Jhirmac Unscented Extra Hold Hairspray comes in an 8.4 oz. white spray bottle. The name “Jhirmac” is written in navy blue with a mint green label. The hair spray I use is a Level 2 which is the strongest of the “Strong Hold.” The “Strongest Hold” was available in a Level 3 and 4. I like the Level 2 because it keeps my hair in place without any stiffness.
Jhirmac Unscented Extra Hold Hairspray is enriched with Vitamin E and ProVitamin B5 which strengthens and protects the hair from heat damage. This hair spray is not sticky whatsoever. When it is first sprayed, there is a slight chemical odor which dissipates quickly. There is no fragrance added. If I happen to be outside on a windy day and I don't have the hair spray with me, I wet my hands and run them through my hair lightly and this will regain the hold. After spraying my hair in the morning, I may spray again lightly in the evening if I am going out.
The retail price of Jhirmac Unscented Extra Hold hairspray is $3.99 and is unavailable at the present time – because I bought every bottle I could find!
