HG status product! Although I do love to use this in my roots(along with B & B Texture) for volume, I discovered by accident it works even better as a curl spray. I just spray it throughout damp hair, blowdry the roots w/ head upside down for a few mins, and let the rest air dry. It gives me the prettiest soft ringlets. This is a great product, very versatile. I love you, Bumble and Bumble!

I can't speak to the thickening effects of this spray as my hair is pretty thick to begin with, but I do have to say that I love this product as a hairspray. I spray this product on after curling my hair, and I absolutely LOVE the hold that it gives, without weighing down my hair, or making it feel stiff and crunchy. I also find that it is one of the few hair spray products that actually lasts and holds the curl all day and into the next.

I definitely would repurchase and would recommend this spray above L'Oreal's Elnett spray that seems to get rave reviews and offers no hold, at least for me!

I'm on my second bottle of this. The first bottle I purchased several years ago, and I suppose I didn't follow the instructions very well because I never got it to work for me. But I picked it up on a whim during my last visit to Sephora, and I've used it every time I've styled my hair since, with excellent results. I spray it on my damp hair, let it mostly air dry, then I brush my bangs to the side and flip my head upside down and dry my hair. Once it's dry, I'll dry my bangs in one direction, and then another, until they lie where I want them to. This adds a lot of volume and texture to my very straight, very fine hair. Will definitely purchase another when I run out.

I've had this for probably a little more than six months. I don't use it super often, and it only takes a little bit to do the job, so I'm sure it'll last me a really long time. I generally use it when I'm going out for a night on the town. My hair is fine, blonde, and straight, and using this stuff before I blow dry definitely makes a difference in volume because it lifts my roots. If I decide to curl my hair, it also does a pretty good job of setting the curls without the gross crunchy hairspray feel, which is great!

I actually like this product, because it does what I want!

A few sprays of this stuff gives my roots a lift, and adds a certain thickness to my hair.

Only downside is its price. But there's a generous amount of product (250 ml) and for me, it's lasted for a while.

Definitely will buy again!

i use this in conjunction with tonic (detangler) and curl conscious defining cream. together, the 3 products make my hair (thin, fine, curly) look the best it's ever looked.

i did run out of this stuff and tried a different volumizing spray, but that just left my hair sticky and knotty. this manages to give my hair more lift and volume but it doesn't get sticky or crunchy.

note: i ALWAYS use this after tonic and before the defining cream. and i ALWAYS use it on wet hair and then scrunch and let it air dry. the times i've applied this to dry hair, it's felt sticky and crunchy and not so great. i do think the order and timing of product application really matters.

I've used this for 6 years. For me it's one of those staples I'll buy again and again. Adds volume, lift and generally makes my hair hold style for longer. It doesn't make my hair massive by itself, but I don't expect that from any product. I've got fine, long, soft hair that easily goes greasy, but never with this! B&b makes excellent products for my hair type, all quite light weight and it's hard to use too much. I've tried Texture and Styling Creme as well, but I think this works best for my hair and it gives good results every single time. Also, never drying or sticky. And I love the fresh smell.

I received a deluxe sample of this that lasted quite a while.
I have short fine hair but lots of it..that gets weighed down easily but requires something to give it some volume,grip,shape etc.
This was just okay..a bit drying, especially if I used it 2 days in a row.
I liked it enough to use it but wouldnt purchase the full size.

At first I thought this was an amazing product. Whenever I use it, I would flip my hair in different sections then spray a generous amount on my roots. I actually felt some grip and hold after blow drying, and while that is a plus, after going through a travel size bottle and about to finish the full sized, I will not be buying this again.
I was shopping around Shoppers Drug Mart and the Fat Hair brand was on sale, the shampoo came with a free thickening spray. I went home and compared the ingredients and both Fat Hair and B&B contains vp/va copolymer in both (and most volumizing products do as well)
My problem is B&B has 2 kinds of alcohol listed as the main ingredient (along with water), while Fat Hair didn't have alcohol high up on the ingredient list and had that copolymer up there instead.
I took a sniff of the B&B spray and there's way too much alcohol. I can't really smell it when I actually spray it on, probably because it evaporates so fast...but I will pass on this product in the future.
I have no opened the Fat Hair spray yet to try since I'm not done the B&B, but will do a review later.

Makes my hair feel thicker and fuller. Also sets it nicely. Good packaging in the sense that you know how much is left. Only negatives are the price (a bit excessive) and I've noticed since using it that my hair becomes static sometimes- but that could just be down to the unseasonably cold weather we've been getting recently. Overall a good product that does what I want it to, will more than likely be repurchasing.
