Most Helpful Positive Review Transforms fine hair!
The Redken Volume Maximizer Thickening Spray is far better than what I was expecting it to be. I've got relatively thin, baby fine hair that's straight as a board. I've tried tons of other similar products but they always just made my hair feel all sticky and weighed it down in the process. But when I tried the Redken Volume Maximizer, I was in complete shock with how well it worked! I really love how easily it absorbs into my hair. I use it on my damp hair after washing it and then use the blow dryer. And my hair comes out looking absolutely amazing! It's noticeably fuller with beautiful volume and it actually looks and feels thicker too! Plus this spray adds so much texture to my hair making it so much easier to style. I can even get my hair to hold curl now too! This spray also smells incredible. It's a really nice, clean scent that lasts and lasts. The only reason I am giving this product 4 stars instead of 5 is because I hate the way it sprays out of the bottle. It comes out in a stream instead of a mist. This makes it so difficult to get the product evenly dispersed throughout my hair. I've just been spraying it in the palms of my hands, rubbing them together and then using my hands to sort of pat the product all over my hair. It would be so much more convenient if it just sprayed out in a mist though. But overall, this is a really effective product for both volumizing and thickening. It has definitely transformed my fine, thin hair. And because of this, I will positively be purchasing more!
Most Helpful Critical Review This is Not It
I received this as a sample and was pretty thrilled. Little did I know, I would quickly become disappointed. The first thing is the spray vavle. You can change how the spray comes out, so instead of spraying & covering a large area of hair, it focuses on a specific area by coming out in a single, rapid stream.
I sprayed it on my roots and overall length of my hair, which is down to the middle of my back. While very fine, I have a lot of hair. I use a round brush on my bangs & a "dry" brush on my length. Both brushes got stuck, as if I had put hair spray on my hair.
After blowing drying, I noticed no considerable difference in my hair texture. That is until the second day. As well as having fine hair, I tend to have oily hair. The second day, my hair still looked good. Better than if I had used dry shampoo.
Would only recommend if they changed the spray face to allow for an allover spray. Maybe then it would work a bit better for those of us with limp, fine hair. Other than that, save your money.

Pleasantly surprised that there is a notable thickness after use.
Bottle states a "spray", not really a spray more a "stream" but easy to use with hand application.

I've been battling hair loss for a couple years. This did absolutely nothing to add lift. I'm pretty sure my hair was flatter than usual. Wore my hair back the day I used it. Threw in the garbage.
After 1st use, I could see more volume
Virginia Beach gal from Virginia
My stylist used this product on my hair on 8/28/21. WOW...I could feel the difference even before my hair had finished drying. The sprayer isn't the best, but we unscrewed the top and poured it into my hands, and I spread it all over my hair like I would a mousse product. I did not just spray it as a root product, I spread it on every stand of hair and scalp. My hair is extremely fine and thin and I have to use a root concealer all over the top of my hair to hide areas that are thinning. This Redken product made my hair look much fuller after it was blow-dryed and styled. My stylist is going to purchase a bottle for me so I can keep it at home. I highly recommend you give it a try.
My fine hair looks great!

My Ulta stylist used this on my hair after spraying with Redken United. No mousse, no root lifter. Then she used Redken 23 hairspray, which actually is very flexible. I hope they NEVER discontinue this! I have more volume than ever!
Love this product
Debbie from Berlin NJ
I've read some reviews about spraying the product onto the hair. I spray some onto my hands rub it together then apply roots. Having arthritis you just have to figure out other ways to use. This works for me.
As far as the product it's great. I put it on my damp hair and let it dry. Then just play around until I get the look I want.

This is the first time trying this product, just thought I would switch from my favorite, unfortunately its not as good as my usual volume product, and had to use quite a bit more cause my hair was flat next morning.
Alley from San Jose, CA
Believe me, I've tried any and all products promising more volume. To my surprise, this one actually works! Gives fine hair just enough volume consistently. Not sticky and doesn't have an overpowering smell. Very pleased to have found a product that works even if it's a tad high in price.
Nozzle doesn't spray it streams, ran warm water over it , ?

Probably will not purchase again unless they change the sprayer.
I would not buy this product again

I bought this product to thicken my hair. But it is so thick that the sprayer does not work well. The product streams out of the sprayer and makes it difficult to get even coverage. This make for a lot of effort to work it in with a brush while drying with a hair dryer. Almost always end up with dense regions.

xtina from Boston
I didn't dislike this product exactly but I didn't find it to do anything exceptional. It was also a bit sticky. There are definitely brands I like a lot more for volumizing.
Amy from Tucson, Az
I recently started using this product and I could see the effects from the start! My hair has more volume, looks and feels thicker even when it's air dried—a huge plus for my fine, straight hair in my hot climate. Helps my style hold better as well.
I'll definitely be continuing to use this product. Very happy.
moscatoismymantra from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Ill start by saying that I've had super thin and fine hair my entire life. I've always wanted extra volume and I've tried a few products without results. However lucky for me this product actually gave me a sign of hope. It gave me volume without making my hair looks stiff or dirty. Definitely worth a try. If it worked for me it may just work for you!
I love it

I love the smell and the look of my hair
Fantastic and light!
BarbiesBubbles from USA
The Redken Volume Maximizer Thickening Spray is a lightweight spray that, when applied to damp hair - adds a great amount of volume. I was even able to reapply a few minutes later, for even more volume. The formula is light, with very little scent and no residue! I highly recommend this for all hair types.
And1070 from Rockford IL
My hair looked great, full of bounce and volume after trying my free sample of Redken's Volume Maximizer I received from BzzAgent. This product added fullness and wasn't sticky or greasy however I wasn't fond of the smell and the product doesn't spray out of the bottle properly, I had to put it in my hands and apply it that way. Overall happy with the results.
GrammyB from Kansas
Plumps up that thin, flat, lifeless mane in a snap! It was like night and day! Nice smell too! Doesn't weigh hair down, just gives it that fullness you get when you go to the hairdresser! Love it!
Juanade from Horizon City, Texas
It provides a great amount of hair volume and it doesn't feel sticky or leaves any residue on the hair. It also makes my hair feel more thick and I like that because my gair is thin and it helps my hair look more fuller and with volume and it's super easy to use and apply.

I used Redkens Volume Maximer after washing but before blow drying my hair. My hair felt thicker not heavy or weighed down. It was fast and easy to blow dry and had a pleasant smell.
Julies from Wisconsin
I used this on my hair and it really did add volume. I need this as when my hair gets longer, it gets really flat. This product helped greatly.
Amped up volume!
Busy working mom from GA - GEORGIA
I have fine hair and it can fall limp and lackluster looking unless I really work at it. I don't like to use a lot of products because they can be stiff and greasy. I received this free sample and really love it! The spray directly targets your hair roots, adding body and volume without any stiffness. A little goes a long way- I only need 2-3 sprays!
Marley27 from Vonore TN
I love my Redken Volume Maximizer Thickening Spray. A little goes a long way with this spray. My hair has amazing body and fullness when I use it. It lasts all day and it makes my hair so easy to style without looking greasy or sticky. It also smells amazing! I highly recommend this product
Love! Love! Love!

I AM TOTALLY IN LOVE WITH THIS PRODUCT! I love the way it smells, the bottle design and how well it works. Hubby uses it for his beard as well.
Don't like it
Jacqofhearts from OH
The pump is too hard to push down and it doesn't spray it streams. I think it would work much better with a wider spray coverage and a pump that works as it should. My hair does feel a little fuller but my scalp is slightly itchy.
