After I wash my hair & get ready to comb it out I have been using Suave hair gel spray forever. It's cheap but I like it. I believe they are not going to sell it anymore. I don’t normally use mousse or gel cause i don’t like it on my hands. Weird I know, but the spray is just so much easier.
Thanks a bunch.
I hate it when a product I adore becomes obsolete and is discontinued by its manufacturer. It happened to me a few years back when Revlon decided to “retire” a whole slew of lipstick colors, including my (then) fave: Exotica. *Sigh* At first, I felt a certain sense of betrayal and it took a little time for me to accept the cold hard reality: It was time for me to evolve and try something different.
Sadly, you are in the same shoes I once wore. You have a product you love at the perfect price, and now it may be going off the market (and I suspect you are right—there is no mention of a spray gel anywhere on Suave’s site).
Here are your options: 1) Track down as many bottles as possible of your beloved product and use them up until they reach their expiration date, thus prolonging the inevitable, or 2) Make a switch. There are a lot of great products out there and it may be time to try some of them. And you won't even have to get your hands dirty with gels or mousses!

You may want to consider one of TreSemme’s spray products. While they don’t offer a spray gel, they do have a heat tamer, a shine spray and a root lifter that may be worth a look. And they are cheap! Always a plus.
Good luck! I hope you are able to make a successful switch!
