Most Helpful Positive Review Excellent product, but please stop changing the name!
Been loyal to this product for years, as it truly makes a noticeable difference for volume of hair. Works for blow-drying and air-drying. The ONLY thing that annoys me (and it REALLY annoys me) is that BB changes the label every few years, which causes a PANIC because you never know if you're getting the same product, so you actually have to read the old and new ingredient list side-by-side to make sure what you're buying is the same! It used be called Thickening Spray, THEN Thickening Hairspray, NOW it's called Thickening Spray Pre-Styler. LEAVE THE NAME OF THE PRODUCT ALONE. Plus, the new label also now makes it sound like the product is ONLY good for blow-drying. It's honestly the most pointless and confusing approach to marketing ever. Other than those marketing errors, the product itself is fabulous.
Most Helpful Critical Review Thickening Hairspray has great reviews...
I was amazed at the outstanding reviews and thus ordered the product. The internet ad stated it's key ingredients--however failed to list a type of alcohol in a very high percentage as the main ingredient! That explained why it virtually stripped dry my finely textured very light blonde hair that is in very good condition. The chemical odor was overpowering and it remained on my hair & collar. After a few hours I finally had to remove my garment and launder it to remove the odor. So, this product may truly work for those whose hair is not affected by high doses of drying alcohol and those who are not chemically sensitive, but for me it was a loss of nearly 30 bucks. It didn't add body or thickness as stated. I do wonder if this review will be published.

Always used a mousse when drying my hair but the hairdresser convinced me to try this…it is great; a little goes a long way!
I would buy it if it makes hair thicker
Kevin from Fresno CA
Just curious will this make my hair thicker?

Just spray on your hair after towel dry. I like to let air dry but you can blow dry
not bad but

has an odd smell and can't really tell if it is "thickening"
Took a minute
Holley from Colorado
I have fine hair that needs some oomph! I've been using this religiously for about a year and absolutely love it. You can definitely see a difference when I don't use it. Light, no residue, easy to style afterwards. The only reason I gave four stars instead of five is due to smell. Not a fan of that at all but the smell is practically gone after my hair is dry and styled.
I have never found anything comparable....
Beth from New Milford CT
I have used this spray, along with the shampoo and conditioner of the same line, for years. Believe me i have tried other cheaper brands on and off and have never found anything that works as well to thicken my hear. I have very fine, short hair and this gives me the daily volume I crave. Its worth the high price.
The Only Lightweight Thickening Product!
Birdmum from Las Vegas, NV
I have very fine hair that falls flat easily so I've tried tons of different thickening/volumizing sprays/mousses and they often start to feel sticky and heavy as the day progresses. The B&B spray smells amazing and I can't even feel that I have any product in my hair. Holy grail hair product. I'll never try another.
I really wanted to like this product
VITO from Chicago
Easy enough to use. But product did not provide volume that lasted even a few hours for me and made my scalp itch. I spoke to consultant at the store and will be returning it.
Champ from Minneapolis, MN
I applied the product to my damp hair as instructed. Once I started using the hair dryer my hair became extremely tangled and it felt sticky like glue! It also made my hair feel extremely dry. For reference - I have long-fine hair.
Maritas from Southern New Hampshire
I use with in conjunction with the thickening shampoo and conditioner and couldn't be more happy with these products. I usually don't have time to blow dry my hair and this still gives me incredible volume and lift. All three products are a bit pricey but they honestly do exactly what they say they're supposed to do. I will keep using them and would highly recommend them to anyone with thinning hair.
Will dry out your hair
Brandi from Alabama
I never leave reviews, but after my hair began to feel very dry and brittle, I started looking at what products I had recently changed in my routine. This was the only new product I had recently put on my hair, so I looked at the ingredients list. Alcohol is the second ingredient which is known for being a drying ingredient.. While this spray does work well to give you volume, I will not be repurchasing.
This made my scalp itch….allergic reaction.
Cheryl from Nashville, TN
There is an ingredient in this product that I'm allergic to. This is very rare for me to have an allergic reaction to cosmetic products.
Bianca from Florida
I use it after shampooing and before blow drying. Plumps up my hair
Gives good hold
SavvyShopper from NE Georgia
I spray wet hair before the first styling or dry hair and restyle with Thickening Spray. It gives body and control without stiffness.
Cannot live without!
MellyG from California
My hairdresser turned me onto this years ago and I cannot do without it. My fine hair becomes thicker with a great bounce to it. You cannot go wrong with Bumble and Bumble in my opinion.
I love B&B Thickening Spray!

I bought the small size just to try. Now I'm going back for the full size. Throwing away all my other hair products and going with this exclusively. My hair is long, below my shoulders and gray. Hair thicker, not crunchy at all and not sticky like I have had from some other products. I simply sprayed it on, ran my fingers through my hair and blow dryed.
Jacey2c from San Jose
I used this product, both the full & travel sized for a few years after my hair stylist used it on my hair. I have thin hair, but until recently had enough of it. Because I thought it was helping with extra fullness, I put up with the crunchy, hard result which can produce a flat or dull finish on my hair at times. Once the store was out of it & I discovered that I wasn't missing anything. It wasn't difficult to find a replacement for this product in another brand that works better.
Got this for my mom and she loves it!!!
K Gitz from Michigan
My mom said she uses this in combination with her revlon brush. She said she loves it, smells nice; she sees a difference in the volume in her hair. She wishes that this was a little more lightweight as she has extremely thin hair
NOT FOR FINE HAIR!
Diane C. from Palm Harbor, FL
I live in Florida where static electricity is practically nonexistent. I wanted something to provide some volume & light hold for my fine straight hair. This product creates so much electricity that I can't even finish styling it because my hair is stuck to my head. Forget about brushing it even hours later. All that helps is washing it out. Glad I only bought the travel size as this was quite a waste of money.
I needed this boost!
LiMarie from Wappingers Falls, NY
I've used this for the first time and am very happy with it. Gives my hair body without stiffness or weighing down!
canalgirl from WA
I love the thickening spray. It is light, but adds volume.
A boost for wimpy hair!!
tlstrickler from Lake Geneva, WI
I have finally, in my 48 years on this planet, discovered a line that works amazingly on my fine, fuzzy, limpy hair!! I have compliments from people thinking my hair is thick! HAHA!!! (insert laughing hysterically emoji here!) Bumble and Bumble delivers with their thickening line, giving me the hair I have always wished for!! Because my hair is pretty fine and lifeless on it's own, I need some help. Used to have to use a crazy amount of product to achieve a somewhat desirable look.. With Bumble and Bumble..I use less product, which in turn means I'm not spending as much money as often! How fantastic is that!??!! I am completely hooked on their line of thickening treatments!!
**Just one tiny thumbs down to note: When I received my product.. It had leaked all over. The cap was not securely screwed on.. Made me sad.. Probably about $4.37 worth of product.. (lol)... But the product itself is a dream!! :)
I love this. Have used it for many years.
Jamileigh from Oklahoma
Helps add body while styling.
Love this product
Lily from Modesto
I use on damp hair. I spray my roots with it and then, comb it into the rest of my hair. I blow dry my hair and style.
