I tried this for the first time today and I think it's my new HG hair product for getting super BIG hair. I have straight, waist-length long hair that is very thick and heavy and usually weighs itself down so much that it looks very flat. I saw a Nick Chavez video on YouTube for this product and decided to try it because it seemed like it adds tons of volume and that second-day, "bed head" look.
My first impression of this product is that it needs better packaging. I read a review where someone mentioned that the foam gets all over the place and they were right. Even though I sprayed the foam into my hand, like Nick Chavez did in the video, the foam sputtered and splattered on its way out of the can and flew all over the place. I did get a good amount in my palm, but it seemed like a lot got wasted too.
That said, this is probably the BEST volumizing product I've ever tried. I was using Michael O' Rourke Size Matters Big Volume Root Spray, which definitely helped add volume at my roots, but this one blows that one out of the water. Flocker Spray doesn't make my hair crispy or crunchy and adds volume ALL OVER, instead of just at the roots.
I let my hair air-dry about 80% while I did my makeup, then I scrunched this foam into the roots and flipped my head upside down and scrunched some into all of my hair. When I flipped up my hair, it was HUGE. I brushed it through, added some It's A 10 Miracle Leave-In Conditioner to the bottom half, then blow dried it straight. Then I used a finishing product to pat down the flyaways. My hair looked super voluminous and thick!
Someone asked me if my hair was real today, I think she thought I was wearing extensions. That's enough to make me think this product is 5 star worthy, but I had to take away a lippie for the wasteful packaging. Highly recommend this stuff if you need an all-over volume boost!

Horrible product- I am so disappointed. When I purchased it, I had visions of Nick spraying his model's hair and her looking like a million dollars! I tried it hoping for the Nick Chavez model effect and ugh, my hair was a mess- it looked greasy, weighed down and I had to re-wash it! More work than I thought it would be..... Plus, you have to spray the product in your hand not the way Nick does as if its a magic wand that produces miracles-- save your money.

I was kind of surprised at all the negative reviews here. I have normal hair to the middle of my back and from time to time I like to do the big TEXAS HAAARE look. It took some trial and error for me but I found with this product less is more. I used hot rollers in my hair, left them in for about an hour and when I took them out I used a short spray of this in my hand and flipped my hair over and fluffed. It wasnt exactly like what nick did but it was pretty damn close. My problem is I have like 3 bottles of this and no way will I use that within the next couple of years but I love it for those glitzy going out events. after reading some of the reviews here I am going to try it on damp hair to see if it does anything.

Absolutely one of the worst ever. Nothing more than a really stick, crunchy hairspray that pulls your hair out if you try to comb through it. I threw mine out in disgust. This should be discontinued.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Other Hair: Other Eyes: Other
I have single color processed fine hair--straight as a stick.
When I saw Nick demonstrate this on QVC---it was an amazing show.
After receiving the product, I did not see how you could use it like a hairspray. It is a thick foamy product similar to Big Sexy Hair Stay & Play Harder.
Like other MUA reviewers, I use it more like a thickening serum.After shampoing, I put about a quarter size dollop in my palm; I distribute it thoroughly around the roots of my hair. I take another smaller amount and with my hands pull it down the strands to the tips.
I then proceed with blow drying.
It give a good volume.
One drawback, on my hair at least: the 2nd day my hair feels dirty to me. That's the main reason this is not a favorite product.

I use this product on my wet, freshly shampooed hair. Spray into palm, rub hands together, flip head upside down and rub into roots. Style and great volume that lasts for a second day.

I gave this a try a few years ago and was not impressed with how sticky and tacky it was because I did not know how to use it properly. First, it does smell awfull. Think of the old pomander in granny's closet type scent. And it does linger so be forewarned. I have baby fine hair that will barely hold a curl anymore. Out of desperation I tried this again but trying the suggestions from other MUA reviews. This is time around, the flocker actually performed for me! I would consider this a volumizing mousse/root lifter. Spray some into the hands and rub them together and then apply to wet or dry hair. I have used this many ways. I will blow dry my hair halfway and then apply this and finish blow drying. This gives me instant volume. You have to work quick with this product as it dries instantly. Another thing I do is to apply this to sections of damp hair and uses velcro rollers and then blow dry. I get firm hold and volume when I do this. As a root lifter, apply to roots and blow dry hair with head upside down. Update: This stuff is just too darn tricky to work with! And I have found that the Aquelle root lifter available at Sally's does the job better, is easier to use and is mucho cheaper!!

Don't waste your money. It has to be the worst product I have ever used. If you like your hair feeling dirty and coming out a mess go ahead and buy it. Other wise a good root booster and some hair spray will be your best friends.

I don't understand the negative comments about this product. I have only used it after styling, spray into palm of hand, rub together, bend my head forward then lightly touch hair from scalp to ends. Flocker gives me great volume, has never been heavy and doesn't leave a buildup. I can use it the next day without shampooing and it still works great. I use it the way I saw Nick Chavez use it on QVC. It is the only volumnizing product that has ever worked for me. Unless the formula has changed this is the perfect product.

Save your money and take a pass on this. I'd seen it on QVC for ages then finally bought a Chavez kit when it was a special value of the day. This was part of it. It weighed down my hair and made it sticky, then after 2 or 3 attempts at using it, the nozzle clogged forever. It went into the trash along with most everything else in the kit. The hair spray was okay but that nozzle clogged too. All I kept was the root lifter. Even the hairbrush was cheesy. No more Nick Chavez for me. Ever.

I wanted to try this forever, but found myself disapppointed. Left my hair hard and crunchy and weighed in down bad. It smells bad, too. I did find if I just use a little bit it's not as bad, but still I found it done nothing special for my hair. I'm gonna try and play around with some of the other previous tips posted and see if I can find a better way to make this work for me.

My sister was so excited to share her flocker with me when it arrived in the mail. Needless to say, we looked like sheep when we finished trying it out--so I guess the laugh was worth something. Might work for a photo shoot, but don't move your head--it'll just fall flat and look dirty!

I recently purchased this product after viewing countless times the QVC presentation of products. Wow, I was in a hurry to get a product that could do everthing I saw on the program! I normally have a head full of big curls, but wanted them to last all day. When I sprayed the flocker on my hair, the curls fell and shriveled, turning into complete frizz. Maybe I need to try it after a shampoo, then blow dry. I don't want to give up yet, having spent so much on the product. We'll see.........

This is definitely not my favorite. I tried it, and maybe don't know if it's my inability to apply it appropriately or the product, but it just made my hair dirty. I could not get it to work. Would not recommend. I have fine, thin, and dry hair.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Very Dry Hair: Red Eyes: Hazel
Well, I never use this on my dry, already styled hair.
What I do is blow dry it to where it is almost dry...and then I spray the flocker into the palms of my hands (oooh, it's quite cool...and you don't need a whole lot!)...rub them together...and then distribute the dissolved foam all through my hair.
Then I finish blow drying...and my hair is bursting with vitality and body and VOLUME!
The first time I tried it I wasn't so sure about it, but like with all hair products I don't give up right away and I play around with it.
This is a keeper.
I find that most of the Nick Chavez products are excellent, for my needs.

i am actually in the process of returning a ton of his products! he was on a few weeks ago(qvc) and they were so convincing that i bought a kit and some other items, well, they are all going back...all of his products have a tremendous amount of alcohol in them....very drying and your hair feels "crunchy" and dry...not to mention there is a lot of residue the next day....for those of us that dont wash our hair everyday, this is a problem....forget the hairspray, although it does hold, you will pay for it with dry crunchy hair, the only exception is his shampoo and conditioner,,, not bad.

Nick Chavez Perfect Plus Dry Volumizing Flocker: I guess, from scanning the reviews below, that this is one of those LOVE it or HATE it products. I guess… LOVE it because it saves you... HATE it because it requires work… Would making it more attractive and better smelling for women make it easier to use? Probably! I have fine, straight, shoulder length hair and I LOVE this product. The understated scent is more manly than womanly, but I really don’t mind; I find it kind of sexy, like wearing a lover’s sweater. Also, this is one of those products I like to have around in case of an emergency like a bad hair day from which it saves me every time. Trial and error… it takes a little playing to find out how to make it work for you… got to get to know it before it can serve you! All I’m saying is: if you have one, don’t give up; once you find its full potential, you’ll be glad you didn’t. And you don’t have to be a hairdresser to make it work, really!

Oh wow. I dont know what is more pathetic, this product- or the fact that I actually bought it. Its sticky, clumpy, smells absolutely horrible, and it made my hair feel the worst it has ever been. STAY AWAY!!

I generally don't follow the directions written on the can. It does leave a sticky, tangled mess if you spray it directly into your hair, so I spray it on my hand first before rubbing it in. I have glossy-black, layered, long hair, and I found that the Flocker works best if you put it on wet hair--the first time I tried it on wet hair, I couldn't believe how quickly my hair blow-dried and how much bigger and textured my hair looked.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Combination Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
I TOTALLY AGREE!! This product left my hair very sticky and unmanagable. I have had better luck with drugstore brands. Very disappointed DUE to all the raving of the QVC folks.
