Aussie Aussome Volume Spray Gel comes in an easy to use spray bottle and is your basic spray gel. It sprays evenly and well (not too much/not too little). It has a nice light smell that is not over-powering. I found that it does add volume (not that big 1980s volume but enough so that it doesn't just lay there) to my fine straight-but-permed hair; however, it's uncontrollable volume with fly-aways and what looks like split ends. It also leaves a slightly sticky feel to my hair. For reference, I used this on wet hair toward the end of the perm and then blow dried. It does offer volume and control but because of the sticky feel as I was working with the hair, I would not buy this again and am going back to my HG Dove mouse.
LOVE this so much! Finally a spray gel that gives volume without stiffness or crunchiness. It defines curls and waves, but can also be blown out straight without fuzziness or sacrificing the volume. HG for me!
This is a lightweight almost mist like spray. It is pleasant smelling and helps my waves look less frizzy. It doesn't have a strong or long lasting hold. But, it is nice overall. Update: I noticed this was drying my hair so I got rid of it.
first off, it smells great. it does help with volume, because i didn't use it one day & my hair looked flat, so it really does help. it kind of helps to tame flyaways as well, which is a great bonus. the pump evenly distributes product & doesn't clog. i think it's around $4 at walmart. i'd recommend this product. continued >>
I actually only use this as a root lifter. It makes my hair extremely voluminous. I'm not sure if I would use it all over my head, but it works well on roots. I love the smell too.
I love this spray gel as it really does provide volume! And it doesn't leave a heavy or "crunchy" feel behind.
I LOVE THIS GEL!!! It does an excellent job of keeping the humidity out without using a whole lot. Also, my hair is shiny unlike with other similar gel products. I gave it a 4 because the scent totally disappears and leaves hair smelling a little "blah" but its a fair trade for keeping away stupid frizzies!!
I have fine hair thats wavy at the ends. It falls just above my shoulders. If I put gel in it when its wet and scrunch while I blow dry or air dry I can get some pretty decent curl going.
I've been using the Aussie Aussome Volume texturizing gel for the past year. I've been pretty happy with it but decided to look for something that wasn't so heavy or sticky. So far this stuff works great! I get the curl I'm looking for and it doesn't weigh my hair down or make my fingers sticky when I scrunch like the texturizing gel did. I've only been using it for about a week and so far I haven't noticed it drying my hair out. I also use it to spray down the fly away hairs that tend to stick up all over the place when I'm done styling.
I think this spray gel actually gives me a better curl than the texturizing gel does now that my hair is longer. The texturizing gel was better suited for my shorter hair. With the spray gel I've noticed that I can get the curl to go almost all the way up to the roots just by spraying it in my wet hair and scrunching it. I still have defined curls and they are light and bouncy. I think I paid about $3.49 for a 6.8 oz bottle at Walmart. So far, I would repurchase this product. I'm waiting to see how it performs in the heat and humidity though. I like the curvey bottle too!
I really like this stuff. It's my go-to when I tease my hair, or just want some volume. It's cool because it's not as messy as gel :)
I Looooooove this stuff. I just started using this. Just a quick background, I'm a hairdresser that is on a quest to find the best drugstore cheap stuff I can find, that still works as well or better than pro stuff. I still like to try things but hey, I like to save money too. This stuff is amazing. I have baby fine, but curly hair. I generally can only use shaping sprays or organic type gel products because everything else weighs my hair down. I tried this with spraying on damp hair on one side of my head, and on dry hair on the other. Both sides already had the Aussie insurance leave-in spray in. This stuff works great cocktailed like that. And I'd say the only difference between both sides, is that the side I sprayed on wet was slightly crunchier and shinier. Which the crunch was light so it could be scrunched out carefully as not to cause frizz. And the side I applied to dry hair had one section near the crown that was slightly frizzy. But that could be from me scrunching and playing with it. Curly girls, you understand. But I really liked it both ways. I think I will probably apply it to slightly damp hair for best results and definitely cocktailed with the hair insurance spray. I think that's what makes this so workable and soft, able to scrunch out and crunchies. And smells heavenly!
Update: I got tired of the scent quickly and it also was building up on my hair and making my hair look dirty. It worked great for making curls pop but then my crown would droop so it just wasn't working out. Too bad. I really wanted this to work. I went back to Giovanni organic gel.
