      Comments about Alterna Bamboo Volume Plumping Strand Expand:

      I tried this because I got a sample from Glossybox and love it. It really works for my fine straight hair, gives it a nice amount of volume and I can get away with washing every other day without my hair looking greasy. I ordered a full size bottle from Ulta.

        I have thin hair, so I'm always on the lookout for new products that promise to make my limp locks fuller. I tried this three mornings in a row and it simply did not work for me. I went back to using the Bamboo volumizing mist -- now that's a great product!

            This product works and I have purchased it many times. Without getting specific, however, I wish it were not so expensive, given that I use it daily and it goes fast.

                I am always looking for a product that plumps my hair. I really like this product for ease of use/travels easier than a spray/ I have gone 3 days without shampooing. Definitely recommend anyone try if you have fine hair.

                  Comments about Alterna Bamboo Volume Plumping Strand Expand:

                  I was skeptical when I saw the recent celebrity endorsements, but Katie Holmes has backed a fantastic product. The entire Bamboo Volumizing line is great. I love it because it is economical. The products may cost more than a drugstore brand similar product, but I was using four or five products to achieve what the Volumizing spray and creme do now.

                    My hair is very fine with no body and gets greasy easily. This makes my hair fluffy with volume and not greasy at all.

                      • Q:

                        I've just recently purchased the 48 hour Volume product and learned that it requires heat to activate the product and obtain the effects. Does this product require heat as well?

                        Thank you

                          No, this product is not heat activated. Apply evenly from root to tip through towel dried hair and style as desired, with or without heat styling tools.
