Love, love, LOVE this product! I have naturally stick straight, slick, fine hair. Yes, it's super shiny and soft but it is so difficult to get any kind of body in my hair, and I've tried everything. This works though! I pull up sections of my hair and spray at the roots then blow dry my hair upside down. Bam! Huge volume! I usually do some teasing to help prolong the volume and finish with Elnett hairspray. This is a definite HG product for me! This can be a bit drying, but for me it's not a problem since I have oily hair.

- volumizing
- despenses perfect amount of product


- none

Comments: Love this! It does what it says. It really lifted my roots and made my hair look/feel much thicker. Best applied to damp hair and blow dried after. I love the scent and how it despenses product.

Will repurchase.

With every other root lifter I've tried, I usually end up with crunchy and fly-away hair at my part line, that usually just feels greasy in a couple of hours. With this and the gvp serum, my hair stays smooth with just the right amound of volume and no funky frizzy hair, and I can even go a day in between washing!

This has to be in my arsenal of hair products at all times. My hair has a lot of wave/curl and volume all over - EXCEPT at my part line. It is definitely thinning out and breaking due to age and overdying. This stuff transforms the thinning spots into just normal looking hair. It really blends it in with the rest. I dry my hair almost all the way and then add this to the areas that need it the most. I rub it in a little and then blow dry with a round brush facing forward. Gives my roots volume without looking too 1980s. The other day I was freaking out over how thin my hair was in the part line and then used this and went out. All of my friends and then my husband told me how great and full my hair looked - if they only knew! This is my 2nd or 3rd bottle of this - it is that good.

I purchased this after getting my hair done at my salon, my hair dresser used the Paul Mitchell root lifter and I loved the result. I went to Sally's and saw this product and let me tell you, I love it! Its amazing, it gives sooo much volume to my roots. I tease the slightest bit after blow drying my hair and it gives me volume all day.

While my hair is wet I spray a few sprays on my crown, then I place a big velcro roller there and leave it in while I blow dry my hair. Then I take it out after the rest of my hair is dry and take a round brush and blow dry that section out. And boom i'm done, I usually run my straightner over the the ends and spray with some light hairspray.

It's under $5 so i'd definitely keep repurchasing!
