No, this doesn't lift roots at all nor give hair any body whatsoever! I thought the foam texture would be mousse like and have some substance, but it has and looks like nothing! It sprays out this flimsy barely there foam (kinda how at the end of a bottle of mousse once it's at it's last spray) but this is how this is supposed to be and it's weird. Because it's so flimsy and barely there one needs a lot just to massage into the crown of the hair. No difference in my hair style/body afterwards either. Useless!
