First of all, I absolutely love the smell... it's an acquired smell. Gives my roots a lift without making my roots frizzy and even if it didn't do that I'd still continue to buy this product because of the scent! I purchase perfumes for my hair but THIS... makes my hair smell lovely all day.. reminds me of Jo Malone perfume in vanilla anise AMAZING STUFF
I went into ULTA looking for a great volumizer and was recommended this product. From the moment I first sprayed it in my hair I noticed it had a very strong scent to it (and not a good one). Throughout the day I felt nauseated and had a terrible headache from the odor. Would definitely not recommend this product to any one. As far as effectiveness of this product, I didn't notice any difference in this product versus others that are a lot less expensive.

I love this product. It works great with super thick hair
Chris from Missouri
I read other reviews but still wanted to give this a try. It does it's job on my fine hair (if I use a volume shampoo and conditioner) and the smell is strong but goes away after a few hours. Overall this isn't my go to or favorite, but I don't hate it either. Would I buy it again? Probably.

I saw the reviews but thought I'd like to try. Although I do have a sensitive nose, this was beyond bad! Others in family said the same. Back it went!
Lil from Chicago
This spray is great, it makes my blowouts last even longer. Day 3 since wash and my hair still looks insanely voluminous. I was also used to having really oily hair, and since I started using this product my hair has been much less oily.
Jane from Spring, TX
Was really getting frustrated in finding something that gave my hair some volume and this root lifter by drybar gave me the volume I wanted. Love that it doesn't have residue or make my hair rough, just volume and silky soft! Plus I love the fragrance!

I love Drybar products, and as far as root lifters go, this product works. It gives a light lift without making your hair crunchy or sticky; HOWEVER, the scent was too much. I read plenty of reviews that warned me of it, but I figured I'd let myself be the judge. (I'm an avid user of OUAI products which also get negative reviews for strong scent and they don't phase me.) At first spray of this product, it smelled nice - like a peppery/woodsy floral. After styling my hair, I noticed I could no longer smell anything BUT the hair product. I felt like I could almost TASTE it. My husband said he could smell me from across the room. I LOVE fragranced beauty products - but even this one was too much for me. If you love heavy, musky fragrances and truly want your hair product to substitute as a perfume, go for it, because it's a decent root lifter. Otherwise, this ain't it.

Spray on damp hair for strong hold of beachy waves done with L'ange Le Duo.

I received a sample of this amazing product and after using it twice I ordered it. It's my new go to product. It gives my hair lift that stays all day.
CRP2008 from NC
This root lifter is well worth the price. It works so well on my fine, medium length hair. I am going to purchase the root lifter in powder form for second (and even third!) day hair! That is the only drawback, it's for use on damp hair only. It does work to keep its hold for the next day though. (I just need a bit more of a boost due to thinning hair) I will repurchase!
Tamara Ann from San Angelo, TX
This product works fantastic with my fine, thin, aging hair. I see by other reviews that many people dislike the scent. I personally love it., Fragrance is a personal taste, and maybe DryBar could make an unscented version of this product. My hair has no natural lift or body, but this product helps it to not be so flat. To date, this product has worked the best for my hair, and I have tried a lot of them in my 62 years.

Finally have some volume in my hair!!
Sheryl from Stuttgart
Really works on my fine, flat hair
Amanda from Macon, GA
I sprayed this in my roots just as directed and I wasn't expecting too much. I was shocked to see that it actually gave me lots of volume without making my hair feel sticky or stiff. I noticed some other people said the smell was bad. It does have a fairly strong smell but it doesn't smell bad to me. It just smells like a hair product.
Hil-Dog9 from Michigan
I was so distracted by the awful smell to be able to enjoy this product. Unless you love smelling like an 80-year-old, STAY AWAY FROM THIS PRODUCT. I'd rather spray cat pee in my hair.
JK from Scottsdale
I have ultra fine hair & not a lot of it, this product really helps tons!
Liz from Florida
I absolutely love this product. It smells amazing and gives me great volume without making my hair feel like sticks, if that makes sense.
Jeebs from MI
I've used it once so far. It gave me great volume and I love the way my hair has such a great scent.

This going to be a long in-depth review.
THE SCENT: I tried this on dry hair first and it smelled like over-sprayed musky cologne. It was way too strong. But I noticed they put so much emphasis on "for use on damp hair." I tried it on damp hair & it smelled completely different! The cologne scent oddly becomes faint, but mixed w/ a powdery scent.
TEXTURE/APPLICATION: It sprays out of a small tube into a light foam consistency. You don't need too much! I spritz it lightly onto my roots and massage in. My boyfriend sprays it on his hands, rubs his hands and then applies onto his roots. Both work great! Spraying onto your hands first is a better technique to use a light amount. Many people have compared this to Big Sexy Hair's "root pump plus" which was my fav for years but after using this product, BSH's feels heavier. (Still a great dupe tho)
PERFORMANCE: It's so lightweight! This would be a great product for anyone with fine hair especially. I have thick medium-weight straight hair with no natural volume, and it works great for me too! It gives my hair great texture and makes my hair look even more thick.
STYLING: You can either let your hair air dry or blow dry it. Keep in mind, I notice blow drying diffuses the scent more. I also like this product better when I blow dry it because the heat locks it in a little stronger. With this product my hair looks full when it's down! But when I tie it up in a bun or a pony tail, my hair can look messy and effortless! Without it, my hair is so soft and not as cute when it's up. It's such a great product!
CJ from San Diego, CA
I love the volume it gives and it doesn't weigh down your hair. I have a lot of hair, but it is very fine. The volume lasts for two days if you don't wash your hair everyday. The only downfall is that if you do not spread it really good on your hair, you can end up with some patches that feel stiff and dry.
HT from Dallas, TX
I like that it's light weight and doesn't weigh my hair down.
Jen from Marion NC
I have lupus and I lose my hair so it is thin and this gave me the volume I needed to hide that. I'm in love with this product!!!!
L Snowy from Massachusetts
I wasn't sure about this at first. I usually the southern belle volume boosting mouse and only bought this because I thought the only difference was the nozzle. It however is a little different and the smell a little strong but after a few uses I find I really like it. Adds nice subtle natural looking volume.
I would recommend this product. They smell was not to strong for me after the first 2 uses, which seem to come out strong.
P from Florida
Tried it the day after I received it and the aroma is way to strong for me. It lasted throughout the day and night.
CH from Maryland
Seems to provide a good lift, but the smell was awful, like a really bad and strong men's cologne. Will not use a second time.
Sealy from Sealy, Texas
I tried a sample size and loved this product. I ordered more samples to try. Still want to try their hairspray.
