Most Helpful Positive Review Excellent product, but please stop changing the name!
Been loyal to this product for years, as it truly makes a noticeable difference for volume of hair. Works for blow-drying and air-drying. The ONLY thing that annoys me (and it REALLY annoys me) is that BB changes the label every few years, which causes a PANIC because you never know if you're getting the same product, so you actually have to read the old and new ingredient list side-by-side to make sure what you're buying is the same! It used be called Thickening Spray, THEN Thickening Hairspray, NOW it's called Thickening Spray Pre-Styler. LEAVE THE NAME OF THE PRODUCT ALONE. Plus, the new label also now makes it sound like the product is ONLY good for blow-drying. It's honestly the most pointless and confusing approach to marketing ever. Other than those marketing errors, the product itself is fabulous.
Most Helpful Critical Review Thickening Hairspray has great reviews...
I was amazed at the outstanding reviews and thus ordered the product. The internet ad stated it's key ingredients--however failed to list a type of alcohol in a very high percentage as the main ingredient! That explained why it virtually stripped dry my finely textured very light blonde hair that is in very good condition. The chemical odor was overpowering and it remained on my hair & collar. After a few hours I finally had to remove my garment and launder it to remove the odor. So, this product may truly work for those whose hair is not affected by high doses of drying alcohol and those who are not chemically sensitive, but for me it was a loss of nearly 30 bucks. It didn't add body or thickness as stated. I do wonder if this review will be published.

Before blow drying
Lillian90 from Roanoke, VA
I have very fine hair and discovered this product years ago when a friend suggested it. It gives me the lift I need without making my hair stiff. I have very sensitive skin and am allergic to most products. This product does not bother me at all.
Stinks but Works
Heather M. from Atlanta, GA
Literally hate the smell of this stuff & it feels pretty sticky but it truly does work. I have long, heavy hair so getting volume at the root has always been an issue for me. This stuff makes even the worst blow drying technique look like a professional blowout at the roots.
Good-bye flat hair
Luppy from NC
I have extremely baby fine flat hair. It is almost impossible to get any body or height. This thickening spray is the only product that works consistently on my hair. It creates lift and body to my hair. I just love it.
Does exactly what it says!
SneakyCat from Chicago
I spray this on before blow drying to help add depth and thickness to fine wavy hair. Works great in conjunction with Bumble's Surf Style Leave-In.
Would purchase again
Gaal from N.C.
I use this on damp hair right before blow drying. My bottle is clear though so may be 2 types of this product. Comes out like a mist not heavy which I like. Too much and hair may stick or feel a bit tangled. Gives me volume, a little more lift. Comes in a travel size so you can sample that one.
Use with thickening mousse!
KS from MN
I like this product a lot when it's used with the bumble & bumble thickening mousse. On its own, it doesn't do much. My salon told me to use the thickening spray in my roots, and then the mousse through my whole hair and it's great!
Doesn't give you fullness
Potato from Charlotte
Works great for thickening fine hair but...
Brewersgirl86 from Waukesha, WI
Works great on my fine hair but I had to deduct a star because of the smell. Not quite sure how to describe it....maybe like a formaldehyde smell. I'll use up what I have left but will stick to the Drybar products for blowdrying.
Great for Fine Hair
Wifey78 from Paris, Ky
This product is great for making your hair look thicker and giving it volume.
Emilee from Arizona
Spray this on my just washed hair and air dry or blow dry for lasting fullness and soft body Even in the dry Arizona heat. Best product I've used for full hair styles
A great product
Anonymous from Connecticut
It works! Amazing! I have fine hair and wanted lift at the roots. Great product
Will keep using it with the style creme I have used for years
Great thickening spray.
luckynavymom from Clovis, Ca
So far this has been the best thickening spray I've used. I've noticed more volume in the crown area.
I absolutely love this product!
Nik from Mason City, IA
I started using this product in 1999 at Coles hair salon in Minnesota.
It's a good product, not sure if it's a love
Liz G from San Jose, CA
I have a thickening product that I love, but for some reason I'm having a hard time finding it again. I have been on a hunt for something similar. I love the BB Hair Primer oil so I was hoping this would be my new love. I think it's a good product, but it's not like the product I'm trying to find a replacement for. I'm glad I was able to find a travel size to test out.
Thors ma from Oregon
I use this in addition to Kenra #17. They add body and texture to my fine, straight hair.
Excellent for my uncontrollable hair
Linda the Virgo from Oklahoma City
Spray on wet hair. Blow dry as usual.
280 gramma from Birmingham, Alabama
I've used this product for years! Wash and dry my hair every day. One bottle lasts at least 6 months. I don't know what I'd do without it.
stas from Long Island
I sprayed into my damp roots as I was blowing out my hair and I got soooo much volume out of it! I love it! ❤️
I have thin hair and love this
CL from Montgomery, AL
I have thin hair and I'm skeptical of products that say they thicken your hair because they rarely make a difference for me. This ACTUALLY made my hair feel and look thicker. It gave me volume.
Best thickening product EVER!
AAR from Cincinnati, OH
Totally worth the price. The difference between when I use it and when I don't is staggering. I've never found a thickening product that works as promised and this exceeded my expectations. I'll never not buy it.
Jlemar75 from Illinois
Not impressed at all. I've heard great things about this brand and decided to try it since it was half off. I've only used it once but it didnt add any volume to my hair. There are several other products that work much better. Will likely be returning when stores reopen.
New Staple To My Routine
Katie from New Jersey
I love the smell. Hate the price! Loved that it was offered at a discount! Totally works! Adds volume and lift. The style holds for days!
Butterflyc72 from Washington DC
Have used this product for years and it always delivers! Add it after washing your hair and the lift magic happens!
Gives ideal volume with out the weigh down
Angela from Grand Rapids
It's always a struggle to find a volume product that doesn't weigh down my thin hair - at last! Great product
