        This is the first product that has actually given my short fine hair some real texture and volume without a lot of build up. A small amount does the job. It can be a little drying if too much is used. Styling lasts throughout the day and lasts into second day. I even recommended to my hair stylist.

            The smell is disgusting and it doesn't go away until you wash it out. What were they thinking? I am not usually bothered by fragrances but this almost made me ill. Plus ... my hair felt dirty after applying it.

                    Very few things work on my fine hair without weighing it down. This stuff works really well. I bought it at half price on special, but will definitely continue to buy it at full price.

                    • Q:

                      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?

                      I have naturally wavy curls. I am looking for a pomade/product that I can use (when I straighten my hair). What I am looking for is something that will help with frizz, give a textured, piecey look without flattening it down or looking greasy. Is this the right product to use for what I'm after?

                        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.
