I've used this product for a few years and I would never have rated it highly, just passable. Now I am head over heels in love with it. Why the change? I used to layer it on with Heat Glide on top. For some reason I decided to mix the two together (nickel size Thickening Lotion and 3 pumps of Heat Glide) really, really well in my hands before applying. The difference is amazing! I get thickness but without the stickiness or sense of product in my hair. The molecules in Heat Glide apparently coat the Thickening Lotion. I have fine hair but a lot of it however, the compromise to me is that I live in an area with soft water which takes all the body out of it. This technique gave me the hair of my dreams and as such I have increase the amount of product (quarter sized TL to 3 pumps HG) and it just got even better. I swear I could be in a hair advertisement.

Although I have a lot of hair, it tends to turn limp by mid-day. I have a big event coming up and wanted to experiment with products to give me some volume. I absolutely trust Redken (use their All Soft combination in the shower) but wasn't crazy about Full Frame, which tends to dry my hair out - I also wanted something that would protect and define my frizzy, chemically-treated hair. I've used this stuff for 3 days now, and love it! It never leaves my hair greasy. I use a nickel-sized amount and blow dry. I'm left with fresh, healthy, lightly-textured hair that has a consistent body throughout the day. Although it doesn't give me Bridget Bardot locks, it's definitely become my daily pre-blow-dry styling product.

So, this product does what it claims, like most Redken products, but I found it was a little hard to work with at first. I had to figure out the perfect amount to use; enough to have an effect without weighing my hair down. It also may feel a little sticky at first (after blowdrying), but that seems to go away (or maybe I just get used to it). I only use this on the crown of my hair though, since I feel like it might make my hair greasy if used in my bang area. Overall, I like this product though and would definitely repurchase. I do wish it came in pump form though!

I've been using this, along with the Body Full spray (on my roots), and I have to say, these two products are exactly what my fine, long hair needs.

It looks thick & healthy, and gives me volume that lasts all day. Those 2 products are keepers for me!!

Good everyday stylng lotion. I have fine, thinning hair and I can't really say that I thik this makes it thicker, but I do like how it leaves my hair feeling. I have repurchased it several times - it's a good one to have in rotation with some other products.

Purchased this product at my local Ulta store. I have medium-long hair, wavy, FRIZZY and starting to thin out with age although I have LOTS of hair to spare! Joking. I'm still undecided on this Redken product. I like the scent of it as faint as it is. It's got a well balanced consistency to it, neither to thick nor to thin. A little goes a long way even on my med./long wavy, FRIZZY mane of hair that I have. So that's a "score" for Redken as my $$$ goes further (or maybe that's really a "score" for moi, wink). I apply this after I have towel dried my hair, squeezing as much water (excess) that I can without permanently leaving my face stretched back like "cat woman" lol, and then work about a quarter sized amount of lotion through my hair, working it through with my fingers, root's to ends. So far this doesn't seem to build up, dry out, or otherwise do unkind, unwelcome things to this mane of mine. The part that I am still on the "fence" about with this product is exactly my reason for purchase: Thickening Lotion...will it? Not sure just yet.

When I first purchased the product....it DID make my hair look and feel a little thicker...but as I continued to use it, I noticed that my hair started feeling rough. I couldnt even run my fingers through it. Im not a hair expert...so I dont know if maybe I should have used something else along with it...or what...but I was very surprised at the results of the product, and will most likely not purchase it again :(

I saw this in the clearence bin at target for $3, and so I thought, Why not? i'm SO GLAD i did!! This makes my midly thin hair MUCH thicker with a drop the size of a dime. Instantly, too. I could actally see it getting thicker as I moved it through my hair. It doesn't have much of a scent which is pretty conveient, for me at least. the only bad thing I have about it is that it dries my alittle, if I use too much, but not much. this is deff one of my BEST buys ever. I HIGHLY would recomend!! :)

The product I have calls itself Thickening lotion 06. I was hoping it would give my medium length fine hair some body but it doesn't do a lot unless you use tons of it. Not as good as the Redken Body Full Weightlifter.
I'm not sure how to use this product really - it doesn't come in a spray, which I prefer so that you can get into the roots for maximum volume. It comes in a squeezy bottle because it's basically a fairly thick lotion. So I tend to rub some on my hands and then run it through my hair, trying to get into the roots. But it doesn't really work. I use this first, then blow dry, then usually apply another styling lotion afterwards otherwise my hair seems quite lank. I won't repurchase when it's run out.

I really like this hair product because it boosts my hair's body and manageability. I can distribute it easily through my hair without ending up with sticky hands, and it doesn't have a super strong smell.

It's not the best choice for those who want a lot of hold, but it's just what I need to keep my straight hair from looking weighed down and adds a bit of shine as well. I paid about $11 for it at Trade Secret, not too bad, plus a little goes a long way.
