I got a sample of this with a 500 point reward. I really like it! I use it at the crown of my head to give fullness and root lift. It works amazing. Will buy full size when the small round container runs out. Only need a little and it works great. Put in at the root and work it a little way out. It smells like grapefruit. Awesome!
Following the instruction card contained within to a tee - warm and emulsify a small amount of product in your palms before distributing through dry hair - but still just got a headful of greasy looking hair which oddly felt dry and tangled to the touch. Didn't do much in terms of hold or volume - it's purely for texturizing. I tried the full shampoo from this line and also was unhappy with it.
I read about this on MUA and thought I would give it a try. My hair is pretty dirty right now, but I tried it anyway. OMG, it really adds volume. I love it and cannot wait to try it on clean hair. LOL. Thanks MUA. It is all natural, which makes it better.
UPDATE ON CLEAN HAIR: HG material for sure. It adds volume and texture, just like it says. What a wonderful product.
I received this in a large sample as part of my 500 point gift from Sephora. Although my hair type probably isn't the target for this, I used it anyways. I have thick coarse hair that needs moisture and smoothing, not volume. I have more volume than I need. But what I liked about this is how it seemed to add nice piecy-ness to my curly hair on the mid-shaft to ends. A couple of times I used it near my scalp to pull my hair into a ponytail with volume and it worked great. I think other hair types would benefit more from this, but I still liked it.
I also like the ingredients they use and the non-overpowering fragrance. It feels like a quality product when you use it.
Let me start by saying I hate styling products! I have short, very piece-y hair and - regardless -the balms, muds, pastes, foams, gels (you name it!) make my hair feel...bleech! Plus I work in a very formal environment and that look just won't work. So I end up with wash and wear hair. It's colored and highlighted and it is pretty thick.
Then I met amp.
Wow. A little dab rubbed between your hands and then pushed from roots to ends (work underneath not on top) is simply amazing. You'd never know there was product in my hair. You would just think that I am lucky enough to have thick, layered hair that returns to perfect form after, say, a walk outside on a breezy day.
And if I sleep on it and had moments to style my hair in the morning? Yep, run my hands through it and it is good to go.
How do they do that?
I love the full shampoo and conditioner, too. These are very concentrated products.
I love Amp. It is such an important part of my hair regimen, as I have thinning and hair loss. I also use the HairMax laser, Great Day hair powder for my scalp, and the Wen hair products. After blow-drying my hair, I put on a teaspoon or less of Amp and work it through my hair. It gives such volume, and it looks like I have so much more hair. I brought it to my stylist today and had her use it on me and she was amazed. It smells good too. Yes, it is expensive for the little jar but it will last me for so so long. I make my hair go big and crazy with it while working it in, and then I style it and calm it down again with my fingers. After sleeping on it you can just squeeze your hair again and the volume and fullness comes back. They have this at Ulta.
