    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.

    Great product!! It adds good amount of volume to my fine wavy hair. More importantly it doesn't make it sticky and greasy. My only remark is that it makes my hair a little frizzy.

        Spray onto clean damp hair focusing on the roots. Don't overly spray, blow dry and you will feel and see the bounce it gives your hair. Style as usual.

          I have thin hair. Been using this for 5 days. This product does help to increase volume, but the volume is not as much as expected or as some other products I have tried. However the time that the volume does last that is added is all day.

                    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.

                    A:

                    Alterna Bamboo Volume 48 Hour Sustainable Volume Spray does provide heat protection benefits; however, it is recommended to couple this product with the BAMBOO Smooth Thermal Protectant Spray (Item # 2238061), which will help to provide 428 degree heat protection and an 87% reduction in breakage, and then layer in the 48 Hour Sustainable Volume Spray right before blow drying to add a 105% increase in volume that will last 48 hours or longer – this will provide optimum thermal protection and styling benefits. Because ALTERNA products are so lightweight and absorb so thoroughly, even when layering products, they are far less likely to cause your hair to go flat. If you feel like you still want more volume and hold, you can also try the Caviar Amplifying Mousse (Item #: 2110828). We hope this helps!
