Are spray deoderants any better/worse than roll-on ones?

    It would seem that spray deoderants are slightly easier to use than their roll-on counterparts. However, are they less effective at what they do because of their method of application (e.g., spray)? What about more effective?

    I've never had any luck with spray varieties. In short - they just don't work for me. At all. I use a Sure cream anti-persp that goes on in the same way as a roll-on, but without the liquid residue under your armpits. Works a treat.

    My friend says that she heard in like science class that anti-perspirants are loosely linked to alzheimers. THere was a study that many alzheimers patients had an unusually high amounts of aluminum in their body.

    Guess what the active ingredient in anti-perspirant is?

    Aluminum Zirconium Trichlorohydrex Glycine...

    Buyer beware... i dont use it anymore... Deoderants i hear are okay...

    I used a dry one for most of my life and moved onto spray. I think the spray is more effective, and at worst the same.

    Nick, they also said the same thing about people who drink a lot from aluminium drinks cans.

    I lived in Italy for two years and a lot of the men there did not use deoderant, spray or roll on. Damn, they must live a long time. They just smell like they are dead.

    Well, it spray anti-perspirant for me.

    I live in the South where on a typical summer day the humidity is so high that when you leave for work in the morning (the sun is not up yet and it is dark) you explode with perspiration as you leave the all-night & all-day air-conditioned confines of your home.

    I don't use a roll-on because they usually apply wet and I am not going to stand around looking like I am being held-up waiting for it to dry ..... and then for it to return to its wet state as soon as I walk out the door .....and that other dry stick stuff has major cake factor.

    Deodorant might work in the cooler months down here but in the summer .......... Well, imagine not taking a shower after a good strenuous workout and just putting on some "smell-good". Just like cream, the funk will rise.

    OK, I cannot believe I have just publicly commented on my deodorant habits with supporting rationale. I must be bored.

    The best anti-persp I've ever used is an ammonium-alun crystal roll-on. You make the crystal wet and roll it on, and it just does the job perfectly!

    The good thing is that when put on it's neither wet nor sticky, which I've experienced with other roll-ons and sprays.

    Maybe... This one especially is a danish product, but I would guess similar is available in other countries as well...

    Right Guard Sport - Powder Dry

    I like this stuff because it really does spray on dry. I hate the nasty wet spray because it doesn't work on me.

    The powder dry is really nice. It is kinda like baby powder!
