Starmie, I feel your pain. I have used this product since forever. The new one is nothing like it. Apparently the company was sold off shore and thats why all their products changed. Luckily I bought about 10 bottles when I found out it had changed and am still using them. I have been trying other products in the lead up to the inevitable change. I have heard from a few experts that NAK has a very similar product. One lady told me it has the same formula. Its called "options". It gives a nice curl but has no crunch or hold. I have been mixing it with my original PPS to bide me some time. Please keep me posted if you find anything you like.
