Rated 1 out of 5 by from Yuck!! The new "irresistible" fragrance on the Forceful 23 spray is VERY resistible!! In fact, I dread putting it on my hair every day, because the new fragrance is overwhelming and clings to everything until I wash my hair again. I can even smell it when washing my hair the next morning. I am SO disappointed in the change and will not be purchasing anymore of this product. Why would Redken change something that is so good already?? Most women don't want heavy fragrance in their hair products because it competes with our perfume or body spray. In fact, so many people have scent sensitivities these days that adding this fragrance to your product has really deteriorated the quality of it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fragrance The new frangrance for Forceful 23 is terrible!! Redken bring back the old fragrance, please!! The old fragrance was so subtle and did not compete with any other fragrances I wore (lotion, perfume, shampoo). I am so sad as this has always been my favorite hairspray for my fine hair and I've worn it for years. I am now searching for a new one. The new fragrance is too strong and too much like a bad perfume. Bring back the old fragrance for your loyal customers, please!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from smells BAD I have used this product for many years (big cans, travel size, etc.) but returned all of my unopened cans today. The new smell is unbearable. It is too strong, smells up the entire house and makes my hair smell terrible. It's a shame because this is otherwise a great product but I'll need to look for something else. I hope you get enough compliants and go back to the old one. This is truly an example of if it ain't broke, don't fix it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of Money! I bought this product as a replacement, because the Redken "Pure Force 16 Non-Aerosol Finishing Spray" is discontinued. My hair is flat within 1/2 hour of applying it! PLEASE BRING BACK THE "PURE FORCE 16 NON-AEROSOL FINISHING SPRAY" QUICKLY!!!!!!! It's the only thing that works for my hair and I miss it! Plus, what happened to environmental concerns? There are no longer any "NON-AEROSOL" options in the Redken line of products! I love other Redken Products and will continue to use those!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from what happened to the old container i have been using the forceful 23 for several years, and am very unhappy with the changes..

I live on a boat and need the staying power of the old product.. i will be looking for and new hairspray.. If you bring back the old container and the old product I will return

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Newest fragrance is awful I have to start off my saying I'm a HUGE fan of Redken's products. I started using this hairspray about 15 years ago because I borrowed it from my friend LOVED the fragrance! I've continued using 23 as it holds nicely and washes out wonderfully. I now use several Redken products: Guts, Full Body, thickening lotion, etc. because of the overall quality; these all volumize my fine hair without weighing it down or making it greasy, and they all wash out perfectly. I'm incredibly sad to say I'm going to have to return this most recently purchased can of 23 and find a different hairspray. The fragrance has changed again, and this most recent fragrance is TERRIBLE. I've tried it for a few days thinking it would "grow" on me.......but nope. I tolerated the last fragrance change because the quality was still top notch. However with this most recent fragrance change, not only is it unbearable to smell all day, but now I'm noticing the can clogging.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the same Forceful 23 finishing spray! Bring back the old Forceful 23 hairspray! The ingredients look to be the same as the old hairspray, but something has changed. This hairspray dries my hair out so much,and the Forceful before left my hair shiny, and held my hair in place. Even my hairdresser noticed how much my hair had dried out. Also bring back Blonde Glam!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not good I have used Redken products for years. It is all I use. I have a lot of allergies - primarily to hairsprays and Redken is the only product line I have found that did not aggravate those. I had used the 18 Quick Dry for a long time but noticed how dry it was making my hair so I switched over to the Forceful and loved it. But my most recent can has disappointed me. You have changed the fragrance and now I think I am having issues. Almost immediately after starting this can I started having allergy issues and noticed a huge change in the fragrance. What was wrong with the old version? It worked and smelled fine. This fragrance is not even a good one and I'm apparently allergic to it. I realize that you are not responsible for my allergies but changing the fragrance was not a necessary change.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from smells bad PLEASE Redken, I am begging you to get rid of this awful new fragrance that you added to EVERY hairspray. It is way too strong, and does not smell "irresistible." I don't understand why you had to so drastically change an already perfect hairspray and add a ton of too strong fragrance that doesn't fade. Nothing else works as well for my hair as Redken 23, but now I can no longer buy it because of the fragrance. I've spent tons of money trying other things and my hair looks awful now. If you MUST keep this awful new smell, can you please make an unscented version? I know I'm not the only one who can't tolerate the new smell. I see it all over the internet. Please listen to your customers, you have to be losing a lot of money and loyal customers with this change.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from stinks I've been using this product for the past 5 years. It's been the one hair product I could always rely on. However, this last bottle I purchased contains a new formula, and the smell is AWFUL. It reminds me of cheap perfume, which wouldn't be a big deal except it's not a cheap hairspray. I used it several times, hoping it would grow on me, but I can't anymore. The smell gets stuck in my sinuses every time it's used. I ended up returning it today, and and bought a different brand to try out. Unless the old formula is brought back, I'll be on the hunt for a different hairspray.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I have been using redken for years, and I love the hair spray, however, the new containers are not good. I have a half a bottle of hair spray that will no longer spray!!! Very frustrating when the hair spray is not cheap. The old silver containers worked much better, I never had any issues like I do now.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from P.U. I have used Forceful 23 for years and would not have hesitated to recommend it to friends..I will no longer recommend Forceful 23 to any of my friends. The recent can I bought with the new fragrance is awful. The smell is terrible and is very overpowering. Please bring back the original formula!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Change in formula The most recent change to Redken 23 hairspray is terrible. A fragrance has been added that is so strong that it is very difficult to wear perfume because it clashes. Very strong scent that lasts all day. I will have to stop using this hairspray which upsets me because I used to love it

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Man's Perspective I like this stuff because I can pop my front hair and it stays in high in place even after I or the weather screws with it. As for the smell, that's one of the solid reasons to buy it. I hate that cheap scent dumped into most sprays and avoid those spra

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Just air This is not hair spray. This is simply a can of air. You're trying to sell us the Emperor's Clothes. There is absolutely no hold of any kind. When I sprayed it on my fingers to test, there was a slight bit of stickiness. This is a terrible product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Yuk!! Please give Forceful back it's OLD smell. Why did you think we want our hairspray to SMELL!! The smell is making me sick. I've read lots of reviews and others are saying the same thing about the new fragrance!!,... Please LISTEN to your customers

Rated 1 out of 5 by from AWFUL I was a loyal Redken Forceful 23 user for YEARS-- I just ordered 4 cans and opened the first one (I order 4-6 at a time that is why I just opened the new batch)-- I almost passed out. The scent changed and the formula changed too! WHY?! WHY?! WHY?! this new formulation doesn't work and just gives me a headache-- I want the old Forceful back! My hair is flat and I smell like cheap perfume. Really disappointed!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It USED to be amazing, not it's not I was a fan of this hairspray for at least 10 years. I loved everything about it and got several friends hooked on it too. I am so frustrated with the recent reformulation. The smell is horrible. I've tried to see if it would grow on me, it's not. I will be returning my latest Forceful 23 purchases and searching for a new hairspray. So sad! If you change it back, I'll be back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My absolute favorite finishing spray! Some days this it all I use after styling and it gives me all day hold with no “crunch” and leaves a healthy shine! I tend to have more dry hair so it’s nice to get all of these benefits and not feel like my hair is being turned to straw! It is somewhat expensive in my opinion but totally worth it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Forceful23 I have used Forceful for more than 5 years and loved the fragrance but now..why have you change the fragrance? I had to buy something else because it was such an awful product. The store would not exchange it without a receipt, do you have any old bottles with the good fragrance? It smell so bad!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The smell Great hairspray, terrible smell. I have been using this for years and it has been unscented. I just purchased a new can and it says "new scent" on it. For those of us allergic to perfumes, it is terrible. I smell like Aqua-Net. Please continue to make unscented. The smell lasts all day.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fragrance I am a long-time user of this product. The recent new fragrance is not tolerable. It has a horrible lingering chemical and lacquer-like smell (kind of like AquaNet). The smell lingers in my nostrils and clothes. You've forced me to switch products and I'm not happy about it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Forceful 2 I too have used Forceful 23 for many many years and I'm wondering why you would change it. I could comb my hair in the morning and it still looked good in the evening. I have very fine hair and this new product does not hold my hair. Please bring back the old Forceful 23.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought this hairspray after my hairdresser used it on my hair and it kept all my little baby hairs in place! I loved the fact I didn’t look like a mad woman at the end of the night. This is my go to for hairspray now! It has a nice scent to! Would recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A hair dresser used the Redken Forceful 23 Strength finishing spray after a hair cut and I have never stopped using it. This product is amazing, I use this product really whenever I feel necessary if I'm going out for the night or if I know its humid out.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hairspray I have always loved this product, but you have changed it, I have an allergic reaction to the fragrance, plus it seems to build up on my hair. The Redken Salon where I go to have my hair styled says all of one of the clients do not like the new product

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Good! I used #23 for 10+ years. The new fragrance is terrible and the can went from 11oz to 9.8 oz. Of course, the price did NOT go down. I went to 3 salons to stock up on the old formula. REDKEN: You need to kill the new fragrance, please!
