Description

Imagine a liquid mousse. I use this whenever I need to evenly distribute volume throughout the hair. I spray this on towel-dried, combed out hair and it instantly volumizes without weighing anything down. Leaves the hair looking shiny and full.

An easy-to-apply alternative for those who have trouble using a traditional mousse, but still want to add thickness and lasting hold after styling.

How to:
1. Apply to towel dried hair before blow drying.
2. Use 5-7 sprays from roots to ends, making sure you apply as evenly as possible.
3. Flip hair upside down while blow drying for extra lift and hold at the root.
4. Once hair is completely dry, style with hot tools as desired.
Tip: This will provide great support, lasting hold and finish when styling with hot tools, which allows you to avoid using hairspray before curling or flat ironing.

Contains Zip-Up Technology™, our proprietary strengthening complex designed to "zip-up" split ends while targeting weak areas of the hair, smoothing the appearance of damaged cuticles and helping to protect hair from environmental stressors and color fade.

Q: Do I have to apply heat (via blowdrying) to benefit from this product? I prefer air drying.

submitted by KaliM - 5 years ago
  • A: I don't blow dry my hair and I really like this product - just kind of style my hair and let it air dry and fluff up with my fingers when dry

    submitted bystlkoko - 6 months ago
  • A: I think you will see results if you blowdry after spraying this to your hair. I apply this to my hair and let it air dry, and I see no difference whatsoever.

I've tried many products claiming to add fullness and volume to fine hair, but this one really does! I also love the moderate price and that it has no odor, nor is it sticky.

I have long, thin, straight hair and this product worked amazingly. It gave my hair some lift but it also allowed for more support when styling. I sprayed it on my wet hair and blow dryer thoroughly. Idk why so many reviews complain about the smell because I think it smells great.

My hair is fine, but I’m not seeing any difference when using this product. It might be protecting my hair from heat while blow drying, but I don’t notice any difference with volume.

I hated this. I followed directions and it just made my hair feel gross and look greasy. Barely any lift for me. I’m someone that can go 3-4 days without looking greasy, but this made my hair look and feel awful. The smell didn’t bother me.

Great product, not a fan of the scent. Make sure you apply this to wet hair, then low dry and you will get a great result. If your hair is damp dry, then it is sticky.

Product does give volume but the scent is VERY strong. It lasts a while! It gave me allergies.. You can also feel the film, it’s very thick. It also did NOT hold style longer than an hour!

Ash - 5 months ago, Verified purchaser
Only thing I liked is that this product thickened my hair like she was thick B. The only thing I hated was that it made my hair stiff as in I couldn’t run my fingers smoothly through my hair. I had to continuously brush my hair out all day cause it did not make my hair silky smooth at all. I was afraid my hair would break.

I have naturally thin hair, and this add a great boost! The sprayer isn’t very accurate, so just be careful not to get it in your eyes. It’s a little unpredictable. I’ve wasted a little bit of product because of this.

Target Customer - 7 months ago, Verified purchaser
I honestly don’t know if this product really works or not. I tried it a couple different times, but had to wash my hair after a few minutes because the smell was so overwhelming (even with 2-3 sprays). I’ve heard great things about this product from others, but if you are sensitive to smells, this is not the product for you.

Abby - 11 months ago, Verified purchaser
I am in love. I have long, fine, frizzy hair and I'm always looking to tame fly aways and add volume. This is exactly what I was looking for. I spray like 10 sprays throughout my hair when damp, then use a towel to squeeze out any excess product and blow dry my hair upside down. My hair had so much body and volume and doesn't look frizzy or feel stiff. Kristin Ess please put me on your PR list I am in love with every product you have ever launched.

This is a great product if your hair is needing some extra life! 7-8 sprays on damp hair is really all you need. It completely transformed my hair by adding volume & shine without making it feel sticky. I will definitely buy it again!

Britlz - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
I’m obsessed. I like what it does in general but if you have curtain bangs the volume is *chefs kiss* For reference I have naturally wavy hair but I usually blow dry it straight. I’d also say I have medium thick hair. I wash my hair once a week and had trouble keeping volume in my hair after sleeping on it. But with this stuff it gets more voluminous with every sleep. I sprayed it at my roots and combed it thru on damp hair. Blow dried it upside down and that’s it! There’s definitely a different texture to my hair but I don’t mind it. And it smells good!

Good Product When Used Correctly

Mercytx - 1 year ago, Verified purchaser
I used this product before blow drying my hair and it worked really good in making my hair look more voluminous and in taming my fly always. I have long hair that goes past my lower back and it did a great job holding the volume. You do not need much of this product maybe about 7-8 sprays. The first time I used it I sprayed way to much and my hair felt stiff like there was hair spray in it. Now I know a little goes a long way. The instructions state to spray it through you hair along with the root but I spray mainly by my roots on different parts of my scalp and it works well.

I am obsessed with this spray. I have incredibly thin, flat hair and this product makes my hair look like I just got a blow out. It’s so much easier to style, it smells amazing, and I feel like I have way more good hair days now.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This product was okay but nothing special in my opinion. I did not like the smell, as it was pretty strong and nauseating. As for the product, I honestly did not notice a difference in my hair. It sprayed into my hair pretty decently and covered a good amount of my hair in one spritz, but the results were minimal, if that.
