Talk about texture! A little goes a long way. A few sprays give great beach waves for me. Too many makes my hair look like dreads (I learned that the hard way). I love the musky smell. It's a great alternative to beach spray. Less drying than beach spray when using the right amount.
Love love love this product. Adds amazing texture to my normally lifeless hair, doesn't leave it sticky, and lasts all day. I have done a tutorial on how to use this product to get heatless waves on my hair care blog http://togreatlengths.com/2013/05/06/overnight-heatless-waves-with-redken-wool-shake/
I wanted to like this, I really did. I read all the great reviews for it, but it just didn't work for me. I followed the instructions and also did as other reviewers suggested and didn't spray it too close because it is very sticky. I also put it on my hands first and worked it in under my roots like another person suggested. Either way I tried it, it didn't do anything for me except make my hair feel a little limp and.. oily? It didn't feel sticky or crunchy and it wasn't super oily, just kind of oily. The only benefit is that this is a pretty good price for a Redken product (if you like it) and it would probably last for a long time. As for the smell, I kind of liked it but it could definitely be overpowering. I'm bummed this didn't work for me but do have other volumizers that I found to be far more effective for my limp locks.
I purchased the original Redken wool shake 08 at Ulta after my hairdresser friend used hers on me. I have a short bob with lots of layers and have never been very good at teasing my hair. I have tried hairspraying my roots before using a teasing brush which worked, but only for a few hours. Let me tell you, this wool shake stuff really works! I part my hair in sections to be teased and spray some wool shake at the roots before teasing. Wool shake makes it so easy to tease! It gives me the perfect amount of volume that can always be made bigger if
needed. It stays in place all day also. I finish off my look with TIGI massive shine hairspray and I'm good to go! Thanks Redken!
LOVE the texture you get from this. Total rockstar hair in an instant. Apply to dry hair and really rough it up to get the best results. I also use this as my "hold" in my homemade sea salt spray. Love the smell, the grip, the look.. definitely a unique product that I will continue to purchase.
This is my go-to product for when I'm doing someones hair that is on the thinner side. (Not that I'm saying someone with thicker hair couldn't use this) It does what it says and adds noticeable volume and texture to the hair, as well as smells good. Another bonus is that you don't need alot, so you're hair shouldn't look like there's too much product in it. I prefer to spray it in my hands and work it thru the hair rather than spraying directly to the hair.
The main thing I like about this product is the smell. Which is amazing! It sort of smells like a feminine cologne. I really like it, actually. But it makes my hair hard and crunchy, even when distancing myself. The overall effect is so-so, so people looking may like the results, but touching is a whole other story.
Rockstar hair in an instant. My hairdresser introduced this to me a year ago and I just now got around to buying it. I'm addicted. It adds volume and texture to my boring hair. I flip my hair upside down and spray it on the ends. Be careful not to use too much, and make sure to spray evenly.
Excellent product. Works wonders on my stick straight, fine hair, adds lift, volume. I use it both as a styling and a spray finish/hold. Paid $17 for it at my hair salon and going to continue to buy/use.
This is a fantastic volumizing product!! I have bob-length fine, thin, oily, limp hair and this is my new fave styling product. it gives sexy, touseled, bed head volume. however, there is a trick to using it since a little goes a long way. use too much and my hair will get sticky and knotty. it comes in a spray bottle but I NEVER spray it directly on my head. instead I spray it on my hands and rake/scrunch it into my hair, then comb out. LOVE it. I would take half a lippie off because the smell is kind of gross (like cheap drug store perfume), but since you use so little, it dissipates quickly. The bottle I have will likely last at least a year but I plan on buying another as a backup lest they stop making it!
