I have bleached blonde hair which can start to look dry without the proper TLC. I got this to add as an 'after' blow dry spray. It definitely adds shine upon spraying it, but with brushing (or even no brushing) that quickly dissipated on my hair. I tried using it next on towel dried hair, but it left a strange, straw-like almost knotted texture on my hair. I've since just given up trying different ways to use it and tried it on my 5YO daughters hair as a detangle spray and it made her hair shiny and amazing. Just not for me I guess :)
I purchased this product after reading a superb little book by Rubi Jones that encouraged a root lifter to achieve certain hairstyles. I have never used a root lifter, and frankly the name sounds a little dirty and super weird to say out loud, so I opted to order it online through here.
I found it gave really great texture, but not anything that I couldn't achieve from a dry shampoo. It doesn't leave any kind of residue though, and has a really alluring masculine smell. So, if you're single and lonely, it's almost like going on a date with a real life man, except he doesn't talk, but makes your hair look really voluminous. I'm actually a little addicted to the smell, but feel as though this product could give greater lift. It would be perfect for fine hair, but more product is needed for this thick and curly mane.
It's very weightless, not sticky or greasy, or even great for a pick-me-up between washes. Use on damp hair and Bob's your Uncle. Unless he's not.
