              I use this product after shower and after i blow dry my hair. I would get a dime size of it rubbing this product
              on my hand,then applying it to my hair starting at middle shaft to the end of my hair to get amp of volume for my thin hair. I really need this product very much when I style my hair, I can't be without it.

                      This is the only texturizing paste that I've used where I don't just HAVE to wash my hair that night because it made my hair turn into a grease ball. I woke up the next morning and my hair was soft and looked/felt normal like it had no product in it. And you only have to use a very small amount

                          I have fine, frizzy hair with a littlest wave but would like to enhance my waves and reduce frizz. My hair is weighed down very easily and I need a lot of lift and encouraged curl memory for when I curl it with foam rollers to encourage wave because it doesn't hold curl very well. Is this the product I'm looking for? If it's not, can you please help me find what I need?

                            Amp will not help with frizz protection but it will give you a piecey look and textured feel, while adding volume. For the additional frizz protection, we recommend applying No Frizz Humidity Shield all over, for a frizz-free, polished look.

                            Yes, absolutely these two products can be used together! For best results, apply Perfect Hair Day (PhD) 5-in-1 Styling Treatment to damp hair from roots to ends, then blow dry or let hair air dry. Once hair is dry, rub a pea-sized amount of Amp2 between hands until translucent and muss through hair for volume and texture. Apply to ends for definition. We cannot stress enough that a little goes a long way when it comes to Amp2! :-)
