Most Helpful Positive Review Holy Grail Hair Product
This product is amazing. I have hair that is very easily weighed down, so even though my hair is reasonably thick, as soon as I put any product in it, it is limp and lifeless.
And because the hair strands are fine and slippery, if I even think about touching my hair with a brush, it becomes a solid mass with no texture or definition, just one solid shiny chunk.
I've tried using other texturizing products, but they either do nothing, or weigh down my hair. Because this product is a spray, it's light enough for my fine hair.
I use this mostly all over while scrunching to get messy waves in a sort of Olsen twins beach waves kind of look. You can also use it at the roots for volume or after styling hair to make it look less "done up". It's got tapioca starch in it (which is used in dry shampoo) so it's also good for second day hair. It also acts as a hair spray so you can use it to texturize while adding hold.
I have shoulder length hair, but this would be fantastic for girls with pixies or men who need texture. I wish I had known about it when I had my pixie. I dislike my pixie because I couldn't find a way to get any texture, but this would have solved that problem. I also think it would be great for long hair as well, especially for grungy beachy looks.
This is my holy grail hair product, I love it so much. My hair looks exactly the way I want it for the first time ever.
Most Helpful Critical Review For Teasing and Volume
I grabbed a travel size of this during the holiday season to try out because I wanted to see what all of the hype was about but I found this product to be rather meh.
It does give a light weight hold without any "crisp" areas. Plus it does smell very good in comparison to other hairsprays. However I found that this left a dull sheen on my dark brown hair. I thought at first I was using it incorrectly or had a heavy hand but after weeks of use and many tries I gave up using it as an all over spray.
Now I use it to hold any teasing or for added volume at my roots and for that it works great. Long lasting too. I still recommend this product though.

This product was more like a super strong hairspray than a pliable hair product. My hair felt like cotton candy and couldn't even get my fingers through my hair to try to style it.
The only product that gives me any volume!
M from Boston, MA
I normally have very straight hair and NO product I've ever used has worked as well as Spray Clay. It makes a huge difference and it lasts, which most products don't in my hair.
Great for Short Hair
Ricefhgk from Texas
I LOVE this stuff!
I've used Spray Clay since I chopped my hair into a pixie six years ago. It's perfect for getting texture and style into short, choppy cuts.
It smells good and washes out easily.
The hold is great and lasts all day.
This has a matte finish, so hair will be smooth and finished, but not shiny.
A definite staple

I use this after the root volumizer to add more lift and texture to my hair.
Love love love
SB from Atlanta
I just cut my hair into a pixie and was looking for something to keep my hair the way I style it but without looking greasy or anything. I bought this because it was on sale and the reviews were good. I'm so glad I did, it works amazing and I use it every single day. I've tried another hair product as well but this one works so much better. I also like how it's a spray and not gel that I have to put on my hands then style. This product is great, I will definitely buy again and use as long as my hairs short
Have loved this since the first time I used it

Quick and easy
Jury still out
jmaryh from Vancouver WA
I have very fine, thin hair. Bought this based on others' recommendations. I love the smell, love love, but it still might be too heavy for my fine hair. I spray it all over and fluff it up, but it weighs it down. I'm going to keep using it for a while. My counter is littered with hair products that ultimately just don't work for me.
I would buy this product again and again~I use it every day!
CJ from GR
I use this product to up do the back and sleek down the front
EH from Ca
It's amazing, but for a male. It really helps my hair, it will leave your hair with a white look because there is clay in it. The can is a bit small, and a bit costly.
Best texturizing spray!!
Julia from Ohio
Best texturizing spray!!! Makes your hair "dirty" without being dirty!! Gives great volume for when you need it! Smells good too!
Would not buy again

Does not hold well
Abbyk from Ann Arbor, Mi
I love the texture it gives my hair and it gives a little volume too if you fluff out your waves. I have fine and straight hair so this helps a lot with keeping the waves, they do loosen because I shy away from hair spray - but loose waves are perfect for my short hair. The product does make my root feel heavy, so at the end I spray a little dry shampoo at my root, re-fluff and I'm all set!
I have added this to my regular product list
MB from Idaho
I use this product to help "show it how to lay" and to smooth down wispies. I spray it on my pick/comb and run it through my hair. It's perfect for those days around the house or when I'm not going anywhere where my hair has to be "done."
Jenell from Michigan
It smells good but I don't like how it feels in my hair.
Amber from Butler, PA

Remember the 80s helmet? This is the result..with stickiness!
My favorite hair product ever
Blondpixiecut from Dallas, TX
I have very fine hair cut very short. This spray adds great texture and makes it really easy to get my bangs styled properly. (I hate spending a lot of time styling, which is why I have short hair to begin with!) It doesn't make my hair shiny, into an immovable helmet, or crunchy (like a lot of gels do), and it's very lightweight. Really the only negative is that it doesn't come in a bigger size!
Priscilla from Villa Rica GA
A huge blast of air wasting most of the product. Therefore not much noticeable results.
cubsfan from IL
I tried this product twice and then returned it to Ulta. While I have fine hair and do not something that weighs the hair down, this made my hair feel like absolute STRAW! I lightly sprayed the dried hair twice to give me extra volume and texture, but it was stiff and straw like and nearly impossible to comb through.
Not for me...
Really like it

Helps me with my fine, thin hair. I have more
Sheryl b from Rogers, AR
Brings volume to thin, fine hair. Not heavy, easy to use, does not dull.
My favorite volume product
Lynn from York, Pa.
I use this on towel dried hair at the roots where I want volume. I then blow dry and style my hair. That is totally NOT how they say to use it, but it works great for me!
Love this product!!!
Char from Tyler, TX
Works great with fine hair...adds volume and control.

Gritty. Not a lot of hold
Volume builder for fine hair!
Ang50 from AZ
This product is great for my short fine hair. It is perfect for my messy pixie cut. Just lift up dry styled hair, spray, and toss into place. Last all day and don't need to wash hair next day- just spray and toss again
