PPS Sculpt It

Are any of you familiar with this product and know of anything remotely similar?
I bought a new bottle last week and when I got it home noticed the dreaded words "new formula". It's not a new formula as far as I'm concerned - it's a completely different product and has changed from a slimy, runny, frizz-fighting kind-of-a-gel into a bog-standard gel-gel that is horrid on my hair. I knew I should have taken it back but I thought I might as well give it a try, silly me.
I've been using this for years and am so peed off that they've changed it, so if anyone does know of anything similar I'd be interested to know, not to mention grateful.

I think I feel a snotty email to PPS coming on!

I think I still have a bottle I brought 4 years ago. I liked it but didn't love it. Samy get curls re-energising lotion is fairly similar, you can buy it at priceline. Not sure of any others as I find my hair prefers mouses rather then serum-y gel type products.
starmie.. perhaps u could still take it back?? depends where you got it alot of hair places have a guarantee on their products :P might be worth a shot

Aiming to grow hair to waist from buzz cut - slowly but surely.
I did wonder about taking it back - got it at HairhouseWarehouse so not sure of their policy.
jonquil, I'll check the Samy stuff out, thanks.

I have some CIAB which used to work well but doesn't seem to play nice with leave-ins apart from cj and I really don't want to keep having to get stuff from the US.

Such a pain.

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.
I would've stocked up if I'd realised it was going to change, I'm always slow on the uptake! I'm using Biolage curl defining elixir now which I'd used in the past and like, but it's very expensive and not quite as good. I'll have a look for the NAK stuff, thanks for the heads-up.

Bought some of the NAK options the other day and have to say I am liking it so far. Smells different to the pps but looks and feels the same, no hold, as you said, but I use mousse aswell anyway so that's fine. Thanks for the info.

So a friend of mine has just recommended a product called "Curl Magic" made by SO. SO stands for Salon Only. I bought some yesterday and WOW. Its fantastic!!!!!!!!!! (You can go on their website and find out your nearest stockist). One 200ml bottle cost $24.95 or you can buy 2 for $40. I only purchased one to see how it went and this will definitely be my new Sculpt it. The great thing about it is if you take your finished bottle back to the place of purchase they refill it for $10 each time. Also you dont have to use nowhere near us much as Sculpt it. It gives your curl great definition taking away any frizz. Hope this helps and Im now rested in knowing I have a new product Im happy with.
Just when I'd recovered from my pj tendencies you come along enabling me, though fair enough, I did ask! I know of a place that sells SO as I've bought some of their shampoo before (clarifying - vicious stuff!). Will have a look-see.

Juuce Sculpturize is the exact old Sculpt It formula. Like you all I was not happy when PPS changed the formula and I questioned the store where I bought it from. They told me that PPS had sold it to Juuce and that it was going to be brought out by them... which it has been and it is so great! I am living in Scotland and I get my Mum to send it over to me from New Zealand!!
Ooh, thanks for the heads up. angwilko said they'd they'd been sold but I didn't know it was to juuce. Will have to look later in the week when I get chance. Have never liked juuce products but will be very happy to have my opinion changed!

But there is a product that I now use & love it, which is almost identical to the original formula that PPS use to manufacture and it called SCULPTURIZE by JUUCE. Try is out. By the way angwilko, if u wanna sell any or all of your original bottles of PPS sculpt it, I'll buy them. If your interested, call me on 0419993313 and my name is mark. Thanx
