Most Helpful Positive Review Lovely!
Full disclosure, I bought this because I read that the hair stylists on Game of Thrones use Wella products (for real hair and on wigs), and everyone on that show has amazing hair. I use this product the day I wash my hair. I spray it directly into the roots and massage it in, then I rough dry my hair for about a minute and then go through with a round brush and blow dry root to end for volume. It works SO well. My hair is the perfect volume. It even holds volume the following day after I've slept on it, and it doesn't make my roots look oily. I highly recommend this product! Oh, and the smell is absolutely to die for. LOVE it!
Most Helpful Critical Review Light Volume On Thick hair
I have thick processed hair that is normally straight but the damage from the processing leaves my hair wavy and frizzy if I don't use any products. I purchased the travel sized version of this product from Ulta. The Wella "Root Shoot" shoots on as a thick mousse. When dry it created light volume and left my hair feeling soft. It creates only half the volume achieved by the L'Anza "Root Effects". Unfortunately, the volume is gone by the next day. When applied to my hair line, my hair doesn't fall into my face as badly as when I don't use a mousse, but it doesn't fully stay off my face either. I suspect it would hold better if you had fine hair.

i have hair that's about as fine as it comes (i can barely stand pulling my hair back for this reason), and i have tried just about everything to remedy this between switching up shampoos, changing how much i wash my hair, styling products, etc.
when i went to get my hair done i brought this up with my hair stylist and she recommended wella's root shoot. i knew the brand but didn't really have any experience using their products so i decided to give it a shot. i wish i could show the look on my face when i saw my hair when it dried (and after brushing it, obviously) - my hair actually had some volume/life to it, and without feeling super crunchy!! the price point is a tiny bit daunting, but i honestly didn't even need that much considering you only really need to use this on your roots, so i'm not complaining!
i would buy the product again

I really like ULTA, but the stores I've been to in AZ are on Tatum and at the Promenade, and they have been very messy.
Would buy again

Kaba from Apple Valley MN
Spray on damp hair. Blow dry or air dry.
Great for Flat, Fine hair.
Lindsey from Indianapolis, IN.
Originally received as a sample, but now buying full sizes. I have extremely flat, fine hair. A little of this directed at the roots gives much needed volume without the crunchiness that other brands have.
Janice from MA
I love this product not only does it make my hair fuller and more manageable but it smells anazing!
I have been using this product for a while and will continue

I use this product every morning on damp hair. I like the body and texture it gives my hair.
MKV from California
I've tried a lot of root lifters and like this one the best by far. Redken Guts didn't do much for me, and the Living Proof one left my hair sticky. This works well, smells nice, and doesn't make my hair oily/scalp dirty for the 3 days in between washes.
Also, if I use my blow drier on days 2-3 - head upside down - just for a minute or two on medium - it fluffs my hair back up.

It smells good, and does it's job. One of my favorite volume mousses to use. It's one of my go to products after I shower. Love it!
VLL in IN and FL from Fort Wayne, IN
This is the only mousse that I've tried (and I've tried many) that actually lifts and adds volume to my fine and thin hair. The best thing is that it works on my hair in Indiana in the summer and Florida in the winter.
I love it!!

After I towel dry my hair, I make parts on the top of my head, shake the can and spray into the rows. Then I rub it in a little, then blow dry. My hair isn't flat on top. Great product.

Finally found a root lift that doesn't make my scalp itch and really works !
Clairon from Alabama
Just on my roots, I have flatter hair and it gives a great lift!
Laura from Burnsville, MN
Great product to build volume at the roots. I have thick wavy hair and this works great to provide volume!
Cece from Dowagiac mi
I use this product after showering and add it to the roots of my damp hair.
Just what I needed
Brenna from Kansas City, Missouri
I've tried a lot of different mousses to add body and haven't found one that works as well as this one. When applied to damp hair and blow dried with a round brush it gives my roots a ton of volume and bounce. I tried this after being seriously disappointed by Bumble & Bumble's volumizing mousse, and it impresses me every morning when I dry my hair. It also smells amazing, almost like sweet tarts.
I like it
egardner from KY
I like this product almost as much as my more expensive Kevin Murphy volumizing mouse. I can say that I also tried Aquage and that was not a good fit for my straight thin hair. I would buy this again. I have short thin hair and I use this almost daily and blow dry with a round brush to get needed lift.
This product make my hair hold its style,and gives me volume

I love the product!
Not a fan
Angela from West Des Moines, IA
I bought this product hoping for a little added volumne. It doesn't do anything. I will not buy again.
Have a real problem with volume, but this works wonders
Kealoha from Madison, WI
Got this as a part of one of those, spend so much, get a bag of magic samples things and will be buying the full-size bottle. I have long, really thick hair, so volume at the crown is always a struggle for me. This knocked it out of the park. The precision application is nice (my big sexy hair one doesn't have that, so I loved that as soon as I tried it) and I don't really find I need a lot to get it to do the job.
Used it with my velcro rollers and bonnet dryer one morning before work and I actually had more volume than I knew what to do with. Spend 5 minutes just trying to brush it down...
Also smells nice, doesn't flake on my head or irritate my scalp. Very satisfied with this product.
I do buy this again and again.

This is absolutely wonderful! My hair is thinning on top and this gives me some thickness so it looks like I have more hair than I do. It's doesn't make your hair feel dirty to the touch.
Love this product.

Gives my hair body. I have thin, fine hair.
LadyB105 from Mid TN
Love it! I recieved this product in one of the product goodie bags around Christmas time. It is a light weight volumizer. Its not sticky and you shoot it right onto the hair! It gives volume that is soft. I've used another R brand and it gave a more structured volume to the root, this one is more soft and natural looking while giving good volume.
Just the right volume!
Jillybean from Portland, OR
Smells delicious, easy to use. Has good volume but not over the top.
I would buy this again
Devo from Utah
Love it, I use it every day
