    Comments about Living Proof Full Thickening Cream:

    This product smells great and is lightweight whic is wonderful for my thin, fine hair. I'm just not sure it provides the volume of other products I have used. I'm going to keep it and finish the bottle, but I'm not sure I'll repurchase. I would recommend this with reservations.

      I did not see any difference in my hair using this product that I paid for dearly. Was not even allowed to use my $3.50 Ulta discount coupon on this product because it was "special". Not with the money I paid for this product.

        Comments about Living Proof Full Thickening Cream:

        I use many living proof products. Especially the ones that help thicken. I have very shory great hair but without the thickening cream, it just doesn't plump up the way it does with use. I use it after every wash and condition..
        On the days I'm not washing my hair, I use it to help style and thicken as well. Then I blow dry. Everyone I have recommended it to, orders and reorders. It's one of those products I buy in the travel size so I always take it with me. You never know how the water will be in different hotels. That way I'm sure it's good, even on the road. I am also not allergic to this product as I am with many others. Live living proof...Worth the money and you only need a little so it lasts a long time. A good value all around!! Excellent because the products do what they say.

          I use this product daily before blowing our my fine, thinning hair. Although it is pricey , my hair is short so I don't require much product. I have tried cheaper products such as Rusk , and I feel this provides my hair with more body and fullness

                    I have coarse hair that has natural curl and tends to frizz. Over time my hair has started to thin.
                    This product, after only one use, seems to add volume. There is more unpleasant odor or stickiness. I used the amount suggested on the bottle.
                    I gave four stars only because I have just started using the product.

                      Which is better for fine hair? The cream or the mousse? Which products do you use together since there is the cream, mousse and the root lifter.

                        The full thickening cream is conditioning, but if you are looking to help repair damaged hair I would check out products from our Restore Line, such as the Restore Instant Repair.
