The curse of the torpedo shaped bottle

My friend Laina doesn’t buy torpedo shaped products any more. This is because one of them once fell on her foot, and her male housemates teased her about the phallic shape in the bathroom. I’ve decided I’ll also be giving them a wide berth from now on, but for different reasons. For me, none of these products delivered and despite hating waste, last night all three found a new home in the dustbin.  


From left to right we have:
Sure Women Natural Minerals Fresh Antiperspirant Deodorant Spray: I stopped using this after 2 days of use because it left a white cakey residue that flaked off on my clothes. Not good. If you like the idea of this product I’d go for the roll-on variety.
Tigi Bed Head Spoil Me Defrizzer Smoother and Instant Restyler: I wrote a full review of this here so I won’t go on except to say this product promised so, so much but for my hairtype, delivered so, so little. May work better on my finer haired sisters who perhaps don’t require quite so much defrizzing in the first place.
Umberto Giannini Backcomb In A Bottle:  The idea of a backcomb in a bottle sounded  too good to be true.  Funny, that.  I’ve seen some good reviews for this product with people saying it works well in conjunction with backcombing your hair. I wanted it to do all the work for me and it didn’t, it just turned my roots into a sticky mess. I’ll be sticking to dry shampoo, OSiS mattifying powder or plain old hairspray from now on.
I’m curious: have you tried a torpedo shaped product that you’d actually recommend?
