Most Helpful Positive Review Brings life to my hair
I have very flat, straight, Asian hair that has the tendency to go oily very quickly at the crown. I usually use a lot of dry shampoo throughout the day to combat the oiliness. When I started using Big Sexy Hair Pump Spray Mousse I noticed I needed a lot less dry shampoo and my hair behaved a lot better. I massage this product into the root of my hair at the crown of my head while my hair is wet. Then I blow dry and I'm good to go. This product allows me to wash my hair every other day or sometimes every third day because it keeps oiliness away. I wasn't able to do that even with dry shampoo. What I like the most about using this Root Pump Mousse is that I can still run my fingers through my hair and I don't get that crispy, crunchy texture that I do with other mousse products. It still feels like my natural hair, but just a little better. It's also nice that it comes in travel sizes. You don't need to use a ton of this stuff so I find myself buying 2 cans at a time in the travel size for regular use and it lasts a few months. I like this so much better compared to the full can of dry shampoo I was buying every 2 weeks.
Most Helpful Critical Review No mousse/foam
Have bought product many times in full size can and loved it, this did not come out as a mousse, but like hair spray. Very disappointing. Tried to exchange, but all the travel size were the same...no mousse about it!

Love this spray
kelly from Illinois
I spray into my palms and rub into roots. Blow dry & done. I have very fine wavy hair that is always flat on top. I've only used once but so far so good. I have volume but not sure how long it will last. Time will tell. Bought the travel size to try first.
I will buy this product again.

I use daily for a root lift for thin hair. I wish the travel size help just a little more so it would last for my two week trips
used once so far, it's okay
Cindy from Utica, Michigan
For hair to have texture
Love this product!
Harmony485 from Texas
I buy this product regularly as someone with fine hair. I am always looking to add volume and I notice on days I forget to use it, my hair is way flat and has hardly any volume to it. I have purchased this item several times.
Pretty good, but might be better options out there
B from Oklahoma
I have very thick hair which weighs down the roots making them fall flat. I was looking at the Kenra Root Lifting Spray and an Ulta worker recommended this root pump to me instead. I followed her directions and it worked pretty well:
1. Spray throughout roots on damp hair
2. Take a hair clip and clip the areas of hair that you want especially volumized way up high to create a bouffant look while the hair air dries a little.
3. After a few minutes of air drying, grab the blow dryer and dry roots up and away from scalp to set.
This worked pretty well for me. I like that I was able to buy travel size to make sure I liked it, but the nozzle did not spray out entirely straight—most of it got on my roots but I also got some on the hand/arm that I was holding my hair up with. I think the regular size has a different nozzle that might work better.
I will buy it again

Bought for travel- great convenient size and works great.
Love root pump. It gives my hair a little boost
Mimi from Westminster, Co
I use this every time I wash my hair. Spray it right on roots & rub in
Not sure it does anything
mountain girl from Denver, CO
I have a lot of hair, but it's fine. And it goes midway down my back. I've looked and looked for a product that adds volume, but am still looking. I've used this product before and come back to it mainly because it's in a travel size and I figure it may do some good. But I'm not sure it does much of anything for my hair...perhaps makes it easier to tease for volume. I'll keep looking for that magical product that works for my hair.
Love this product!

gives my curls a great boost of volume.

helps my hair hold volume for a while after using it.
Have to experiment with it but good for volume
Heather G. from Virginia
Overall, it's a good product. It lifts and adds volume, but not so much that it looks unnatural. I have fine, flat hair and it keeps it from looking flat. You can use too much however. I have noticed that my hair will feel unseasonably sticky and thick if I use too much product so you definitely need to experiment with the amount to get it right. One other thing that I'm not crazy about is that it shoots out of the can very fast and will go far. I have fine thin hair so it kinda will shoot strait through my hair and hit whatever is behind me. I've tried applying it other ways but it just doesnt work as well. Maybe I'm doing wrong, idk. I'll still use it though because it works well for me.
I've bought it lots of times, good deal

after shampoo, while hair is wet, while blow drying
Works great and travel size is perfect for a trip

Gives volume to thin and fine hair
Middlekid from CO
Used with round brush. Holds all day. Nothing else has done that.
I will buy this again
Gina from Goddard KS
Recently had my hair cut short and had been trying to find a product that would give volume without build up yet hold all day, tried several products but this one is a keeper
Okay, but nothing special.
Hannah from SC
I have pretty thin hair so I wanted something that would give my roots body. This product is lightweight and doesn't weigh my hair down, but it doesn't really plump up my roots or add body to my hair. I'm a little disappointed because I heard it would be better. It may work for people who have thicker hair.
Perfect Size for Travel

Easy to use. Adds volume.
Great for Traveling
Heidi from Mission Viejo, CA
Great for traveling and can go in your carryon in the airport. Lasts surprisingly long and is a great mousse.
Great product in a travel size!
Tuffy from Auburn, WA
I use after shampoo; 2x wk to give my limp hair volume. It works well & I love the travel size!
Glad my favorite product is available in travel size
hipoldlady from Chicago, IL
I use this product daily after shampooing my short, fine, straight hair. It helps build volume for a style that lasts all day. I was happy to find the travel size so my style can be great when I'm away from home.
I would definitely buy this product again

Did nothing for me
Purfect from Akron, OH
Did absolutely nothing for my hair. Glad a got a travel size. I took it back to the store for a refund.
Amissy from Long Island, NY
I purchased the travel size to take it for a test drive after my stylist used it on my last visit. I spray it into my palms and work it through my hair. This mousse helps my hair keep its shape after being blown out. Will probably purchase the full size. It's not heavy or sticky and doesn't have a heavy scent.
