I too, have used this product for years and became distraught when I was no longer able to find it. The wife and I dedicated a day to visiting every store we thought would carry this product with no success. All are carrying the new similar pure clean product that just doesn't compare to the surf hair texture paste...it's very greasy and does not have the same hold or look. I have very fine hair, which too many products just weigh down my hair. Not this product, however. Please, please tell me hasn't been discontinued...
This product is great! I've been using this surf hair paste for at least 10 years now and absolutely NOTHING compares to it. -Holds your hair in place -Smells good -The old container is bigger (5.1oz) than the new product container (3oz) and was cheaper than the new product for more of it. -The new Power Putty Surfer Hair product does not feel the same and does not hold and style hair the same way as the Surf Hair Texture Paste. -The new container is bulky and oddly shaped whereas the old product container is round and fits much easier into your hand or a bag or any other place. -The Power Putty Surfer Hair also seems to be a wetter product whereas the surf hair texture paste was more of a dry paste, which worked better in my hair.
I miss the old Surf Hair Texture Paste. It is far better than the new surf hair junk that Garnier Fructis has replaced it with. Please bring the Surf Hair Texture Paste back immediately, especially for the loyal customers who love this product and continually buy and use it. I have used this product for 10 years and I'm frustrated that Garnier Fructis would suddenly discontinue it and replace it with a product that is junk, costs more and gives you less with each container. PLEASE BRING IT BACK!!!
I couldn't agree more with the other reviewers. I haven't found anything that comes close to this product. So pliable without being hard, it's amazing. Maybe you're rebranding the "Surf Hair" name? PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do not change the product itself. I have tried your new "Pure Clean Finishing Paste" thinking that it may be Surf Hair rebranded, but it is not at all. It's way too sticky. At the very least, please continue to make this available for online purchasing by the loyal customers that have grown to depend on it! An update to all of us on the state of the product and it's availability going forward would be greatly appreciated -- if we have to bite the bullet and try something new it's better we do that now than travel to all drugstores and Targets, Wal-Marts, etc. in a 20 mile radius looking for more Surf Hair.
This is by far THE BEST hair styling product on the market! I have been using it for at least the past 5 or 6 years. I ran out of my current supply two weeks ago and now I can NOT find it anywhere. Not online, not on shelves. It has disappeared. Is it being discontinued? I have no clue what I will do if that is the case because I don't like anything else out there.
This is absolutely ridiculous. You take a product that is loved by many and replace it with something in a larger, less-convenient container, filled with less of a product that no one wanted, and costing more than the larger quantity of the product that we were looking for to begin with. I’ve used nothing but this on my hair for longer than I can remember and have found nothing that even begins to compare.
It would be one thing it raise the price. It would be one thing to change the appearance. It would be one thing to decrease the volume. You couldn’t seem to do any of those things alone but had to combine them and give us something we don’t want on top of it. Utterly deplorable.
Why is Garnier discontinuing a product that is truly exceptional and unique? I have been through all the different mousses and gels and sprays and NOTHING works even close to as well as Surf Hair on my long and extremely curly orange hair. It is the perfect hair product and responsible for many a great hair day. For the love of no frizz and no crunch, bring it back!
I have been using Garnier Surf Hair for the passed 10+ years and have found no other substitute. This particular hair product works better than gel, mousse, hair spray, you name it. I have thin, fine hair and this product makes my hair stylable.
I've gone to three different stores to purchase more of this product as I usually do and they are no where to be found. Please tell me you are not discontinuing this product. You have got to be kidding me!
I think I'm the only male writing a review for this product but I have used this stuff forever and now I can't find it where I live. I have tried Walgreen's, CVS, Target and HEB...none of them have it. I used to be able to get Surf Hair at all of these stores.
Did Garnier discontinue Surf Hair? If not, please send some to the 78666 Zip-code.
There truly is no other product out there that matches Surf Hair. I had been trying for years and years to find a product that could really pull off the "bed head" look and I've been so happy the last 5 years with this product. Nothing else compares. Please PLEASE bring this product back!
I can't believe your company took this product off the market! I have bought 3 other similar products since I ran out of Surf Hair, and none works the same, or gives my hair the kind of texture Surf Hair does! I don't feel pretty without my favorite product! I won't be buying any more products made by your company until you bring back my Surf Hair!
PLEASE PLEASE bring this product back! My fiance and I both love it and it not only worked great to hold either his style or my waves in a natural, non greasy way, but the smell was also awesome! We have tried your new "surf hair" product in with the mens section at the grocery store and the smell is overwhelming and very masculine - my throat has been sore all day since I put it on and we will be returning it. Please bring back the old stuff - there was nothing wrong with it! I also think the packaging on the new product seems like a lot of excess plastic. :(
I was very disappointed to find out that Garnier was discontinuing the Surf Hair product. Since I started using it about 5 years ago, it has by far been the BEST hair product I have ever used. Does anyone know if there is a different Garnier (or other brand) that makes a product similar to Surf Hair?
