    Comments about Alterna Bamboo Volume Uplifting Root Blast:

    I have been using ALL of the Bamboo volumnizing products. I have baby fine hair with the slightest wave in a couple of places. This is the BEST volumnizing product I have ever found! Sometimes when I'm almost done drying it, it feels so thick I wonder if I need to get my hair thinned. When I told my hair dresser that, she was impressed since nothing (in the 24 years she's done my hair) has ever impressed me like this. I thank the saleswoman at ULTA for suggesting this product to me. It's pricey and I'd love it if it were cheaper, but you can't have everything. Aside from making my hair very thick, it also feels clean and not like I'm wearing as many products as I am. I use the shampoo, conditioner, texture spray, thickener and the root lifter. (I told you I have baby fine hair, but not when using all these products!)

        A little drying if I use too much but by far the best product for adding volume where I need it at the roots.

            This product was to lift your hair from the scalp. It was very drying, hard to handle and it dried the hair so bad it became brittle. I would not recommend this on a daily or weekly basis. Maybe 3 days before your next perm and you want lift, fine. but daily or on going absolutely not. I am returning my unused product.

                  I have baby fine hair that falls flat....until now! I love this stuff and even have volume the next day! The trick is not to use a lot or on damp hair. Make sure your hair is dry and quickly spray a little in the areas you want volume. Don't use it like hairspray. Use it properly and a little goes a long way! I have tried many products and this one is an A+!

                        I HAVE BABY FINE HAIR. I LIVE IN A VERY HUMID CLIMATE. THIS IS THE ONLY PRODUCT I'V USED THAT GIVES ME VOLUME THAT LASTS MORE THAN 3 HOURS. I'VE HAD IT LAST 48 HRS!I HAVE BLOWN IT OUT THE NEXT DAY, AND THE VOLUME WAS BACK!
                        IT DOES DRY OUT AND DULL A LITTLE. HOWEVER, IF I USE MY JOICO LEAVE-IN DETANGLER/MOISURIZER AFTER I SHAMPOO, THEN NO PROBLEM WITH SHINE.
                        AS WITH OTHER VOLUMIZERS, IT DOES MAKE HAIR FEEL COATED.
                        THIS SMELLS GOOD, I JUST WISH UNSCENTED PRODUCTS WOULD COME BACK SO MY OWN PERFUME IS NOT COMPROMISED.

                          Fine hair with little body--spray at roots of my hair and gives great lift.

                            Very hard to work with on short hair. Does not wash off of hands very well so I imagine what it can leave in hair.
