aqua-net hairspray, Comment by Albert on February 11, 2016 - Report this comment
My name is Albert. I hope family have been using aqua net for many years. The past couple times my wife bought a can of aqua net spray. My wife was very disappointed the way the spray would come out of the can. Ever since the company has changed the spray tips. every time I spray my wife's hear. Too much of the spray would come out at one time. You cannot get an even soft mist to come out of the spray nozzle it comes out way too heavy.I even tried to take the nozzle off of one of the old Cans that the spray nozzle was working the right way. I was going to put the old nozzle on the new can of spray. But you can not even make the good spray nozzle work on the new Can. I talked to other customers in the store if they had problems with aqua net they tell me they had similar problems like I had. Your company needs to go back to the original spray can. That always worked good I felt like you needed to know about this problem. Right now I am not using aqua net hairspray for my family and I always thought aqua net was the best spray out there.

Pizazz Temporary Hair Color, Comment by Kiki on February 10, 2016 - Report this comment
I loved pizzas, had electric blue spiked bangs all through JHS! I left a message for Clariol, hopefully more will too! Since we did it big before the Millinals I think "our" product should come back so we can show them how funky hair is really done!! Thank you for contacting Clairol, Kiki. I appreciate your continued interest in Clairol Pazzaz and you sharing such kind words. Unfortunately, this product was discontinued since there weren't enough other consumers who shared your enthusiasm for it. While I can’t promise anything, we are constantly looking for ways to improve our products to meet the needs and preferences of our consumers, and your feedback will help us with this endeavor. We value you as a loyal customer and appreciate you taking the time to contact us. Kendrick The Clairol Team ref:_00D80PUz7._50080o7prf:ref

Jelly Jacket, Comment by Dave on February 08, 2016 - Report this comment
These were very popular in the early 80s especially. I remember seeing them for sale in all colours at most markets, and also at shops like C&A's around 1981 - 1984. Lots of teenaged girls wore them at this time, and the most popular colours seemed to have been blue or red, and the least popular white or black. They were almost always transparent PVC with a zip and a thick white cord at the bottom, and usually on the hood too. I was at school at the time and quite liked them, but they really were something that only the girls wore. In the eraly 80s transparent PVC raincoats were popular with women in general (especially older women) and most high street shops (discount shops in paticular)sold them in all colours. Most of these were knee length with a draw string hood and a belt, and they usually fastened with poppers. As someone here pointed out, none of these lasted that long and your mum or gran always seemed to be buying a new one because of a tear. They were so cheap that they weren't worth repairing. Again, these were a women's fashion and very few men (except elderly men) seemed to wear plastic raincoats in the 1980s.
Balloon Sneakers, Comment by Countrygirl on February 07, 2016 - Report this comment
I've been looking for them for the past two years, haven't found them. They were the most comfortable shoes I've ever had. If I ever get my hands on where to buy them, I'm getting 5 pairs.
