Formulated with over 96% plant-based, naturally derived ingredients, AG's Dry Lift instantly adds grit, volume and texture. Kaolin clay and volcanic ash absorb excess oil, creating a thickening effect on the hair cuticle, adding body and allowing hair to be styled and manipulated. A touch of coconut oil adds pliability and seals in moisture. AG's exclusive blend of rosemary, lemon, lime, geranium and lavender essential oils provide natural fragrance and the healing power of aromatherapy. Ideal for refreshing second day hair and creating updos.
Emulsify a small amount in hands and apply to the roots of hair for instant volume and oil absorption then style as desired. For a piecey look, work through hair, focusing on ends.

    Comments about AG Hair Dry Lift:

    I am not sure that I would recommend this product. It makes the hair very dry feeling and wears off and the hair goes flat. I have used Sebastian Molding Mud and I think I prefer it. This product is hard to spread through the hair because it is too dry and you would have to use too much. I am really thinking of returning it.

        I'm 65 years old with straight fine hair. For the first time in my life I got a short layered hair cut. One of the sales rep at the Solon Ohio store recommended this product. I have been using it for about a week. It is very easy to use. Dry Lift is giving my hair the lift I need for my new hair style. I have been very pleased and would recommend this product to anyone.

              I use this to add volume to my crown area & it works extremely well. I have soft, fine naturally curly hair and a very small amount (about 1/2 a pea size) is all that's needed to work for me. I love this so much more than Big Sexy Powder play. Doesn't feel greasy or cakey at all.

                  I initially got this as a free sample. I love using it on second day hair--I don't need dry shampoo. It lifts the roots and styles my hair similar to hair wax. I do have dry hair so you may not have the exact same results. I am not as much of a fan when using on freshly washed hair. It makes my hair too big and makes my hair feel a little too dry. It smells good as well. I ended up purshasing a full size when Ulta had it on sale. I

                    Comments about AG Hair Dry Lift:

                    The first time I used it, it was perfect. I think I may be using too much. I noticed that when I skipped conditioner (which I rarely do), it didn't perform as well, and left my hair a little dry, but nothing I couldn't brush out. I'm happy enough with it, that I'll keep it, and keep practicing until I figure out how much to use. It definitely provides lots of volume! It's like an invisible hair spray...which you will not need with this product. You can put it in your hair during the morning, and its' effects last all day, in to the next day, simply by tousling the roots of your hair! Definitely worth trying out!

                        After washing your hair with Balance shampoo and Boost conditioner, spray Remedy leave on mist throughout the hair to help detangle, reduce frizz and lock in moisture. Once hair is dry, use Dry Lift as a finishing product to create volume and lift, help style updo's or simply to refresh second day hair.
