Most Helpful Positive Review Great volume - does what it says
If you follow the instructions, including how far to spray this from your head - it works. If you don't know how volumizing works, and expect no 'product' to actually be there, you don't know how volume is built.
To build sustainable volume, you need to either backcomb (which builds hair up under your hair) or use a product that places product in your hair to lift.
This stuff does that, but there are those that complain it leaves a residue (though it is not 'visible' to the naked eye). To that I say, well...duh. Your hair needs something to hold it 'up.' It isn't an unnecessary buildup, but a necessary one to give me volume. Just know that you wont' be running your fingers through your roots as easily as without - but...neither would you if you teased your hair.
This is natural looking, without the harsh teasing...and you can get as big or as little of a result as you want.
I also use this in combination with their dry volumizing shampoo in the off days that I don't want to wash.
Most Helpful Critical Review It's OK, but that's all.
At first I thought I really liked this product, but I spike my hair & it's just too "wet" for that. I do not use a blow dryer, just spike by hand when my hair is wet, and this product dispenses very "wet" and that makes spiking difficult.

I have thin , fine hair and it gives me fullness.

Great product that works well but keeps hair soft and easy to style.
Try this if you suck at using regular mousse!!
MKH11 from Arkansas
I have thin fine hair. Regular foam mousse is so frustrating to apply to my hair and root spray made my hair feel crunchy. This product sprays out similar to hair spray, but in a light foam. It distributes evenly unlike regular mousse which reminds me of shaving cream 😂. Great volume, not sticky or crunchy!
BARB from TOLEDO
I apply to my roots before I blow dry
Very good product!
Tiger Girl from SC
Wash hair and towel dry. Shake can well. Lift hair in sections and spray product at the roots. Blow dry. Gives hair good volume.
I love this product! It gives me great volume and hold.
Deanna from AZ
I use this after I blow through my hair a little and comb it out. Then I spray the product near the roots of my hair (and a little overall) then I continue to blow dry as I always do. It is the best!
Yes. I have used this product a good while👍

Been buying for years

I use on wet hair and blow-dry. It makes my hair Fuller and more manageable.
Great for thinning hair
Birder from Newport News VA
Smells nice, clean, does not seem to weigh hair down next day. Renew with dampening hair and light blow dry next day to achieve full volume again.
Kimmie from Morenci Arizona
I just started using this and I love it. It adds volume to my thin hair and it looks fuller.
Not for my hair
Fine, straight hair from Michigan
Made my fine, straight hair feel like straw and impossible to style because it was so dry.

My thin hair needs support!
Jury still out
Golfmomma from Baltimore MD
Still working with getting the right amount - do not want the 80's big hair look, just a smig of volume in my bangs. Gray hair has less texture.
Love this product!
Pam from Portland Oregon
I use boost on my wet hair after shampoos.
Love this stuff!

Does the job

Will buy again

Good for fine hair, adds body and fullness.
Would not buy this product again. Weighs my hair down.

Wish I could get my money back. Worse product I ever purchased.
Volume without weight
Mokalvr from Pittsburgh, PA
I've been using Root Pump for years. I have thick hair and don't need product all over the top portion of my hair. I love that you can spray this just where you want it to give lift. Ulta has great sales on the product, so price is not bad.
Scrunches wavy curly hair without heavyness

Spray, bend head down, scrunch in volume and dry.
The best mousse I've used
Sara from Charlotte, NC
This is the best mousse I've ever used.
Not my favorite
AT04 from Minneapolis, MN
I grabbed this since they were all out of the blow dry mousse. I am not a huge fan. I don't like the spray. Even though I'm targeting my roots and the crown of my head, it sprays all over and leaves a sticky residue. While it does give lift, it leaves my thick hair with that same sticky residue that covers my floor. I will not repurchase.
Works as described
Carlee from Ponte Vedra, Florida
Since trying to let my hair grow out, I have had a problem with getting and maintaining fullness on the top. This product gives the root lift needed. I apply it in small sections at the root where I need more fullness and lift.
It does what it says it will do
Carolee from Florida
I spray the roots at the top of my head in sections and then blow dry. I use just a quick spray in each section. It gives my hair more body and lift, and holds the style so I don't have to use a curling iron the next day.
Long-lasting, worth every penny
Bron from Georgia
Keeps my long hair pumped up for multiple days. Use in combo with Big Sexy Hair Spray & Play Volumizing Hairspray to keep my volume and curling iron curls intact. A little product goes a long way. I wait for sale to purchase.
