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.

I use it before I dry my hair and I like it
So far so good
Jamik from AZ
I have only used this product twice but so far I really like it. I don't know if it thickens but I do like that it gives my hair a little grip so it holds a wave better.
Holy grail product
Emily from Arkansas
My favorite hair product I have EVER used I have very thin, very fine hair, even in my twenties. I use this spray generously before drying and it makes my hair look so THICK. It doesn't weigh my hair down or leave residue either.
Works amazingly well on fine hair
Sabine from Phoenix, AZ
I got a travel-size bottle of this after my stylist recommended it. My hair is fine, and is both colored (demipermanent to cover gray) and permed (large rods, just for added movement and volume). Right now, my perm has grown out by several inches, so the hair closest to my scalp is just hopelessly flat and limp. I apply this spray *only* at the scalp and midshaft, and then use a styling cream from mid-shaft to ends, where it's drier and damaged. I was absolutely SHOCKED at how this product really pumped up my hair. Yes, it leaves it feeling a little rough, but it still looks smooth and finished. I have had no problems with it drying out my hair, but again, I don't use it on my ends. If your hair is dry but limp, consider buying a small bottle and trying it just as the scalp. It really works!
This product really works!

Use it every morning...works soooo awesome! Love it!
I will buy this sgain

Love this stuff works and smells great
LK from San Diego
My hair is fine, so have been looking for a long time for a product that gave it more body without weighing it down. This is perfect!!
THICKEN MY HAIR
LEILA from MN
WOULD BUY IT AGAIN
Alexa Z from Manahawkin NJ
I have tried every hair thickening product on the market. None compare to this. My fine, thin hair looks and feels twice as thick and shiny after using this product. An added bonus is that it lasts till my next shampoo. I've tried many products....some good, some bad. This is hands down the best in my opinion. My hair looks like it did when I was much younger when I use this product. Wish I could give it a 10 star rating.
Best Volume Ever!
Jenna from Madison, WI
It smells amazing and is one of the best thickening sprays I've used. My hair still feels touchable and not super stiff.
Smells like rubbing alcohol
Jess from Wisconsin
This product smells like pure rubbing alcohol! I do not recommend it at all. It dried out my hair and I did not see any volume added to my hair after blow drying it.
Great for aged thinning hair
Busylady58 from PA
I use this after applying the B&B oil primer uv spray. This has transformed my colored, thin & straight hair with more bounce & volume with out drying it out. Awesome shine to the hair. I have also been experiencing hair loss over the years and this has helped to disguise the problem. I also have a sensitive scalp and had no issues with this product.
MaggieTmae from Illinois
I was pleasantly surprised on how full this made my hair! Love it! Only concern is it seems to dry out my hair. That's why only 4 stars. Maybe it's just "senior" hair!!!
It ALWAYS comes back to this spray
CindyFish from Colorado
I don't know what it is about this spray, but it is part of my hair routine that has proven to be truly irreplaceable, and that I come back to over and over again. Other products promise fullness, and sure, they even sometimes deliver it, but they're still never as versatile as this Bumble Thickening Spray. I have wavy hair, so sometimes I like to boost curl and sometimes I like to straighten. Sometimes I like to air dry, sometimes blow dry. This spray is the only thickening product I can use for ALL of those approaches. Other thickening products, for example, might give me thickness, but they'll weigh down my waves. Or they'll only be good for a blow dry, but not an air dry. But this Bumble Thickening Spray gives me the fullness I need with the styling versatility that I need.
Laishug from Baton Rouge, LA
I have tried every voluminous and thickening product on the market. This is my game changer! It will take you from skinny, flat to thick hair version with a few sprays! It also lasts days and through dry shampoo!
This product has saved my hair!
Noelle68 from Alameda, CA
The Thickening Spray adds volume and fullness without stiffness. I love the affect on my thinning, grey hair. But the spray itself leaves something to be desired. Some times have to use two hands to depress the spray nozzle. And very little comes out. I need a good spritz. I poured one bottle of spray into a plain spray bottle and got more out with each application, but also a big mess. My hairdresser said it would work better if the nozzle in the original bottle were cleaned with rubbing alcohol or hot water after every use to keep it clear. I love the product, and put up with the hassle of trying to dispense the amount I need. Would love to hear other ideas on solving this product issue easily, with no mess. And I do give it a good shake before each use.
Steph from Ohio
I have thin straight hair and before I blow dry my hair I spray this stuff in and wow!! Really gives volume and makes your hair feel so soft and shiny too!! Buy it you won't regret it!!
Where has this product been all my life?
Dimpledjill from Taylorsville, UT
This product opens my hair to whole new possibilities. I knew I had a little curl in my hair. But with this product, I can make it stay there with thick, full curl I have never been able to keep before. I am actually proud of my hair when I go out now!
Lizbeth from Cumming, GA
This is liquid gold! Not having time in the morning to straighten my shoulder length hair I diffuse dry my curls. I still use some other products just out of habit from using many many years, but wanted to try/add something different. Because my hair is so thin and would frizz at a drop of humidity, I dab on some It's a 10, spray a little Paul Mitchell Soft Sculpting spray and a dab of their sculpting foam. Then scrunch all over with a hand towel to get the moisture out and form the curls (this is an important step). Dries a bit while putting on make-up. Crazy I know, but it works....so I thought. Now we add B&B right before diffusing. I know it's on the pricey side, but just a little goes a long way. I spray a little around bang area and sides and then two sprays in my hands for the back - this helps make sure to not use too much and spread evenly. I can't believe how much fuller my curls are and leaves my hair silky and full of bounce. I don't think 90% humidity would have a chance! I can't wait to maybe try it as my only hair product, maybe. And I'm sure it's going to work wonders when I have time to straighten my hair. Stay tuned!
Note: It's hard going by reviews because everyone's hair is different and reacts different to different products. You have to find what works for you. When I bought this B&B at Ulta I wasn't worried about the price because I was told if I didn't like it I could return it. Luckily I didn't have to.
Unfortunately it didn't work for me
Ashleigh from Abingdon, Md
I really wanted to like this, used it a few times and it never did a thing. Definitely didn't thicken it.
I would buy this product again

Before blow drying
Lillian90 from Roanoke, VA
I have very fine hair and discovered this product years ago when a friend suggested it. It gives me the lift I need without making my hair stiff. I have very sensitive skin and am allergic to most products. This product does not bother me at all.
Stinks but Works
Heather M. from Atlanta, GA
Literally hate the smell of this stuff & it feels pretty sticky but it truly does work. I have long, heavy hair so getting volume at the root has always been an issue for me. This stuff makes even the worst blow drying technique look like a professional blowout at the roots.
Good-bye flat hair
Luppy from NC
I have extremely baby fine flat hair. It is almost impossible to get any body or height. This thickening spray is the only product that works consistently on my hair. It creates lift and body to my hair. I just love it.
Does exactly what it says!
SneakyCat from Chicago
I spray this on before blow drying to help add depth and thickness to fine wavy hair. Works great in conjunction with Bumble's Surf Style Leave-In.
