Decent thickening spray. I usually spray this on my roots only for texture and volume. The reason I would not repurchase is a) holy cow, the alcohol really reaks! This stuff has a bad smell, very unpleasant and I have long hair so as I go about my day and it my hair swings around me I can smell the alcohol/spray for hours .. .very annoying. b) I can get better results minus the price and smell with lots of other products which are cheaper/better (eg: Spray n Play, AG, etc) c) very, very drying and makes hair tangle easily - might not be such an issue if you have shorter hair. Overall, decent for volume and texture but not worth the price. It literally smelled and felt like I was spraying on rubbing alcohol or vodka. Will use it up but never buy again.

I got this in a travel size and I'm dying to repurchase! I decided I wanted to go blonde and had a full head of highlights done about 4 or 5 times in the space of 4 months!! As you can imagine my hair was in bits and I was still brassy so I went back to brown. Since then my hair just kept breaking off and was in a terrible state! Half of my hair fell out and I was pretty upset! So when I got this it made so much difference to my hair! I used this on my wet hair just before blow drying and it worked wonders! It felt fuller and gave it body for when I styled my hair!! Totally recommend this product to anyone and I can't wait to repurchase a full sized bottle as my travel size is almost done! It lasted me a long time and therefore think the price of this product is justified!! Beaut product and does what it says on the bottle!!

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.
