      Comments about Alterna Bamboo Volume 48 Hour Sustainable Volume Spray:

      I have tried tons of products on my baby fine hair and this product, by far, has been the best at making my hair feel and look thicker. A consultant at Ulta recommended this product to me after I had told her I have tried tons of products to make my hair look thicker. This product is very easy to use. I spray it all at the root on my damp hair and then blow dry. My hair comes out looking and feeling much thicker.

                  Disappointed. Put volume in my hair for about an hour, left it flat for the rest of the day. Have tried spraying less, no difference. It's very lightweight, so I don't know why it leaves hair flat.

                      A:

                      We would recommend the Caviar Anti-Aging Miracle Multiplying Volume Mist for your hair. This product strengthens the hair to restore natural thickness and provides 2x more volume, while improving elasticity and moisture balance. If thinning hair is a concern, you might also want to try our Caviar Clinical Daily Root and Scalp Stimulator - a leave-in treatment that helps stimulate and soothe the scalp with an energizing mix of vitamins & nutrients, allowing healthier, thicker-looking hair to surface.

                      A:

                      The Bamboo Volume 48 Hour Sustainable Volume Spray is designed to be used on damp hair, prior to blow drying for optimal results. It may help to retain curl but it isn't really designed to do that. It will however give you great volume to start your style. You could also try the Caviar Perfect Iron Spray which will protect against high heat, humidity and will also provide some hold and "style memory" to help you achieve a defined curl.

                      While this may give a little bit of a volumizing effect when air drying, BAMBOO Volume 48-Hour Sustainable Volume Spray is really meant to be used before blow drying the hair to get the best results.
