I was recommended this product a few months back and absolutely love it! It's all about the brush you use. I have this awesome boar bristle round brush that works well with my fine hair. I especially love what the product does for my bangs, and how it looks once I've straightened with my Chi and put a dab of Paul Mitchell skinny serum over my hair. However, there are some cons about it: the crunchiness, still haven't figured out if it's from applying too much or what, but it starts seeming high maintenance at times, like I have to come over hair, dry in different ways, straighten, comb, dry again.. not so healthy for the hair.
All in all, I love love love this product, but would like to try other Big Sexy Hair products to compare with. I do have to say, compared to everything I have tried.. seriously product after product for years, this has by far given me the best results.
UPDATE: This stuff will break you out if you get it on your skin, no matter where.. arms, back, face, neck. Other people I know who use this have said the same thing, so make sure to always wash it off immediately if it gets on your skin.

I have always been big on teasing my hair, but my hairdresser told me I should stop because it is so damaging. So I decided to turn to product to get this desired look instead. Bad idea! It made my hair very sticky and greasy. I ended up having to re-wash my hair righ after using it. 15 dollars down the drain :(

I bought this about a year ago on the recommendation of my hair stylist. I have layered hair past my shoulders. It is slighty way with a medium to thick texture. I like my hair Brigitte Bardot big and for the most part this delivers. It pumps up my roots and crown and lasts really long. I don't wash my hair everyday so when I blow out my hair I want it to last.
Now the can is kind of clumsy and cumbersome to use but if you spray it into your palms and work it through your hair it becomes easier. That being said, it is VERY easy to overdo it so use less then you think you need. One tiny spritz too many and hair can feel gunked up and greasy.
Overall I like it a lot. It's has a sassy name and seeing the canister on my vanity makes me smile. It's worth a try if you have thickish hair that needs to go up and stay up!!

I have very fine, thin hair, so I picked up a bottle of this at Trade Secret last month. It works well as far as making my roots seem a little thicker, but I didn't notice a "wow" effect for the volume. In recent weeks I've also noticed that my hairline and the back of my neck is breaking out, and it never did that before I bought this product. I tried not using it for a week, and my skin went back to normal. So a warning to you gals with normal/oily skin: this will probably make you break out.

I really tried to like this product but it just made my hair bulid up and have a wierd feel to it. Not natural at all. I have fine hair and I think it weighed it down with too much gunk. I think this would work for thick hair-ed gals.

Ok i guess it gave some lift, not much, but it made my hair soo stiff and gross feeling. I hate when my hair is not soft.

I have thick, layered, highlighted hair and live in a highly humid environment. Root Pump Plus does what it says - gives volume at the roots and is fairly resistant to humidity. I'm not sure if I love it better than Redken Guts, but it's a close call.

I have very curly, frizzy hair without a lot of volume. This product works pretty well, but it makes my hair a litle "crunchy", even if I use a light application. It does boost up the volume and tame my curls, but I think it's overpriced. Probably will stick with Suave Healthy Curls mousse since it's less than $3 at the drug store.

After such rave reviews on MUA, I was expecting this product to give my long, fine hair so much volume, but no dice. To get any oomph, I had to first wash with L'Oreal Glossy Volume shampoo, so that my hair could get a head start. I then had to use a lot of the mousse (which I sprayed on my hand and rubbed on my roots and mid areas) before blow drying. I then had to finish with some volumizing hair spray. For a product that costs nearly $20, it should work better and not need so much help! I will stick with L'Oreal Studio Line Upright Spray Mousse, which gives me lasting volume and costs around $4.

I use this everyday and especially keep the spray concentrated on my crown. It works quite well for my very long, fine, super-straight hair that is prone to the greasies. I've never tried it without blowdrying afterwards, so I can't report on that. I always, always blowdry with this product, and even if the volume fades a little throughout the day, a quick backcomb/shot with the hand-dryer at work picks my hair back up. Four of of five, will re-purchase, but still looking for that ONE product that will work miracles (I understand that this may be a life-long venture :) ).

Oh how I love Root Pump Plus.
I have thick highlighted Asian hair, but not a lot of it so Root Pump Plus definitely saves me.
Smells great, really plumps my hair up, and dries fast.
The nozzle doesn't really make application easy, as the button seems to be cheaply made (which decreases the amount of control I can use with my finger). One lippie off for that.
But other than the packaging quality, I'd have to say Root Pump Plus produces nice, big lifted roots as long as you blow dry AWAY from your roots.

As good as it gets with volumizers, or at least the few I've tried.
EDIT: Drugstore stuff works just as well, if not better and is about 1/4 the cost.

Good product, nice hold, average volumizing. I always spray into my hand and rub into hair so packaging wasn't a big deal. My stylist always recommends using on dry hair because the moisture brings out my curls. I'm just not totally impressed with this. It's a good mousse, but nothing that stands out. I do think if you want root volumizing ... I prefer the new KMS AMP volume Root Boost and Lift spray. That gives a little boost but is never sticky.

I got this a few months ago and use it regularly to lift my roots. If you use too much, it can dry out your roots and make them feel crunchy. I have long, fine (asian) hair. I use this on my roots only in combination with other products. I don't like the fact that the bottle is so big, I have difficulty holding it in one hand and spraying. It would be better if the bottle was shorter so I can leverage the bottom of the bottle against the palm of my hand to control it. I bought two more (buy one get one free at Ulta) and plan to use it. A lot of product for your money.

This is one of the root boosters my stylist recommended to me. Since this and the hair spray was discounted in a package together, ending up being $7.50 for each, and the cans were huge and attractive... I don't know if this works any better than my Catwalk Root Boost yet since I just got a new hair cut that adds to my volume. But I haven't seen my hair look so full. I'm still going to try other root lifters, but this is definitely a keeper for me.
