So, my hair is fine, limp, soft and without any noticable volume or texture. It´s long, not colour-treated and although it´s fine, I have lots of hair.
My hair tends to be more oily at the roots and my ends are healthy, but sometimes need a little moisture.
Almost anything weighs my hair down and I´m the type of customer, that wants big hair, but not necessarily wants to pile tons of product and have a gritty feeling.When I run my fingers through my hair, I don´t want to feel crunchy, knotted hair.
I tried different products and brands, but found out, that Kevin Murphy makes the best "feels-as-if-you-have-nothing-in-your-hair" products. In my case, that´s a huge plus for his products and I plan to test even more products from Kevin Murphy as I liked the ones I tried so far.
So, the anti-gravity is an oil-free volumizer. It comes in a square plastic bottle and you simply squeeze the product out. The product looks like a slightly tinted gel.
The smell is very clean with a lavender perfume, that is not too overpowering.
I´m pleased, that it doesn´t contain silicones, which are the death of my hair and just ruining any volume in my hair.
I use anti gravity on damp hair by putting a small amount on my hands, rubbing them together and spreading the product evenly first in the mid-lenghts and ends and then in the roots. The amount of product depends on your hair, so just start with a small amount. I am always careful not to put too much product on, but with this one, you don´t have to worry of getting gritty hair.
After that, I just blow dry my hair upside down. When I´m almost done, I take a large round brush and use it while blow drying to give my hair a little extra volume. Easy and takes no time at all.
The result is soft hair, but at the same time texture and volume. I don´t want to fool you and say your hair looks like a huge Brigitte Bardot teased hair when you use this.
But it adds some volume and texture while leaving your hair feeling good. I can run my fingers through my hair and I like the feeling of it.
This is probably a "boyfriend/husband friendly" styling product, because you can play with your hair, touch your hair and it feels good and smells nice.
I definitely recommend this styling product even to people who normally hate styling products. And of course for people with fine thin hair, that needs volume and a little (!) texture.
It makes my hair look better and more polished with a light as air finish, that doesn´t weigh my hair down. Love it.

I do love this product for several reasons. It makes my hair soft, manageable and gives it a bit of volume. It works perfectly with my beloved Davines Relaxing Fluid for hold, smoothness and body. I have somewhat straight, thick long hair. I gave it a 4, since it really doesn't provide significant volume, just a little lift. I will continue to buy due to other positive features. The lavender/earthy scent is very strong, so beware if you're allergic to scents.

I'm not looking for hold or product-heavy texture. What I want for my fine, flat hair is a little lift. Anti Gravity does it better than anything else I've ever tried. I rub a small pea-sized glob between my hands, then rub it into my hair at the roots and pull whatever is left through the strands. My hair gets just the right amount of volume, so that it looks natural and feels clean. For me, Anti Gravity is a keeper.

I happened upon some Kevin Murphy videos on youtube and read all the rave reviews for Anti Gravity. It sounded like the answer to my hair prayers so I ordered from a bottle from amazon.com. I was really excited about what Kevin Murphy said in one of his videos--his products don't contain any silicones because silicones are the death of hold. Yes, I agree!
Unfortunately, Anti Gravity doesn't do a damn thing for my hair. Nothing. Zero. Zilch. It has a lovely clean lavendar fragrance and gives me a the tiniest bit of volume, but that's it. I can't get any volume or hold with Anti-Gravity. The product is very light, almost like a gel, and dries without any crunchiness. Unfortunately, it doesn't give me any hold or texture. My hope was that I could use Anti-Gravity with my curling iron/hot rollers to keep the curl in my hair, but it's not the miracle product I thought it would be. Oh well, I guess that's my own fault. .
Oh, and I have to say that the packaging is lousy. I think a sleek tube or bottle would've been much nicer than a bottle shaped like a box. It's so awkward to handle and doesn't really save me any space, if that was his idea. Just weird.

Really sorry to be the one to break the positive vibe here, I love Kevin Murphys policies, formulas, packaging etc. in general, but this product did nothing for my hair. I have lots of fine hair and no matter how little product I used, it made my hair feel sticky. I could not get it to work on my roots either, it would only poof lower sections of my hair. And the smell is too much, I think. A really overpowering lavender scent, not fake or anything, smells of 'real' lavender, but it's just too strong for me.

Amazing. With this I could style my naturally wavy hair straight or leave it wavy with volume, no frizz, no sticky feeling and hair that stayed put all day long. Lavender smell was also great.

I usually can't go anywhere near nice salon-y products as I either react to them or they weigh my hair down so it looks greasy after half an hour! However I've been using this now for a few years and it is completely indispensable, once it's on my hair it's not noticeable but if I run out you really do notice the difference! Definitely gives my hair volume which lasts all day, and I think it makes it less fuzzy in bad hair weather. The lavender smells lovely and my hairdresser told me it's actually quite protective &calming for the hair ( not as a sales pitch, she knew I would always buy it anyway!).

I'm not good with volumizing products since everything feels filmy on my hair. I do love how this smells, but it doesn't do very much in term of giving me the lift I want. However, it is just about the only thing that will give me the bouncy ends that I love, and the big round flicks actually hold all day, so I guess it's good for volumizing my ends. It also gives my hair shine and smoothness, so it looks like I spend more time on it than I really do. I don't use it very often though since I have a sneaking suspicion that it makes me break out a little.

OK, the packaging is weird/ugly IMO. However, it is quite efficient. It goes into my vanity really well. So, while it is ugly, it is a space saver.
The product itself reminds me a bit of Living Proof Full Thickening Cream. This product is more light-weight in comparison.
I find that I get some volume from this. It does have a strong lavender scent. I try to keep it away from my scalp because it makes my skin itch.
My favorite thing about this product is that it makes my hair very soft and not at all tangly. It is almost like a leave-in conditioner that also adds volume. I wish I got a bit more volume from it. I like to let my hair air-dry the best. This performs better when I blow dry, though.

This is the best volumizing product I have tried. I have thin hair past my shoulders and it instantly gives me a look of thicker, fuller hair. It is non-sticky and I find that I can go an extra day without washing since the volume lasts and lasts.
My stylist recommended that I use a full quarter size amount and dry my hair fully to get the best results.

This product seems simple enough - apply to dry hair after styling. It really gives my hair amazing volume and makes it curl perfectly. It is awesome!

I’ve tried Kevin Murphy’s Angel Wash & Rinse and Born Again, the scent of which I found too strong and performance quite average. But for some reason I was sold by this “oil-free volumizer and texturizer” and just needed to try it. First of all, I was pleasantly surprised by Anti Gravity’s scent: it’s quite fresh and pleasant, and not overwhelmingly strong. I use hardly any styling products on my hair, but still need some multitasking products I can rely on when need be. And Anti-Gravity has definitely become one of my staples. I apply it on my damp hair and sometimes blow dry, but usually I let my hair dry naturally. It does help with volume (which I have plenty naturally too) and texture. It also controls flyaways and static. And because it’s oil-free it doesn’t make my hair oily even when applied in the roots. The size 150 ml is perfect for me, because I use it quite rarely. And the bottle is very cute and refreshing too. I also love it that Anti Gravity contains natural ingredients and no silicones or paraben-preservatives. I’m looking forward to trying other Kevin Murphy products as well!

My hairstylist recently used this on me when I got my hair colored - it gave AMAZING results in the salon, so I decided to give it a try at home.
I'm currently in the process of growing out a cut with way too short layers from a different stylist, and was growing increasingly irritated with the amount of different products I was using in my hair to try to restore the thickness and volume my hair had before the bad cut -- this did it! My hair is huge and thick and full of volume, and best of all it still feels SOFT and super shiny and i can actually run my fingers through it!
With the other products I was using, my hair ended up looking very dull and felt crunchy in order to get the volume i wanted. Not so with anti gravity.. my hair actually feels like hair.. albeit wonderfully big, thick, and soft volumized hair. ;)
I have LOTS of fine, wavy, oily hair [i HAVE to shampoo daily if i dont want to look like a grease factory] that doesnt like to hold any style, especially in the texas humidity, so I am amazed at what this has done to my hair with such little product! My hair feels, and looks SO good. It
As with any product, using it correctly is very important to get what you want out of it -- I use this in damp, towel dried hair - just a dime sized drop for my thick, layered, just below shoulder length locks. I work it through from the roots to the ends, then blow dry my hair with a large, round barrelled brush starting from the bottom layers and drying the crown last.
For extra volume at the crown, I wrap the hair around my brush, blast closely with the hot air to heat up the barrel, hold for about 15 seconds, then hit it with a shot of cold air. I usually repeat this on the layers surrounding my face as well and the sides of my head - it really helps keep the volume in all day - like hot rollers, but easier. :) A little hairspray on my bangs and the roots for some lift, and some gentle teasing in the crown, and I'm good to go for the whole day!
You can also use it in dry hair for extra texture, but i havent tried it like that.
It is a little pricey for a small bottle [$24 for 150ml] , but you don't need much and the packaging is well designed so you squeeze out too much. I'll buy it again and again! My only complaint is that it isnt easier to find.. the only place in Dallas who seems to carry it is my salon! [dear clark]

Nice lavender scent. An oil free volumiser for hair. When applied to damp hair and dried in, it fattens hair up. When applied to dry hair and scrunched in, it gives great 'bedroom' hair which lasts and lasts. I do find that it makes my hair a bit flyaway when I blowdry it in and I have to use it with serum or Kevin Murphy's 'Motion Lotion'
EDIT - almost 3 years on and I still love this product. It's a great 'all-rounder' - I use it on damp hair before blow-drying my hair straight, yet it's also great when used prior to putting curlers in - it really helps hold a curl. It's very difficult to use too much of this product. When applied before blowdrying, it gives hair a great shine without weighing it down. Definitely a repurchase!
