Rated 4.36 out of 5 stars
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.
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.
Thicker hair... in my comb! from Centreville, VA
I thought I was dreaming... I was so excited when I discovered this product. I have baby fine hair. I never noticed a difference until a week later... I combed my hair after showering and it was filled with hair! I kept using it, not making the connection. And I started panicking... thankfully, my husband helped me sort it out. Since I stopped, my hair stays where it belongs! in my head!

Good for my hair a little curly and gives hair body

I have very fine and straight hair. This product gave some body without weighing it down. Liked it a lot. I have already bought more. Thank You to the stylist at the Foxboro who gave me the recommendation.

It smells good, helps to thicken the hair short term but no long term effect. I like the that it's not so sticky on the hair. Overall a good product!

This is one of the best thickening sprays that I have ever used. It works without leaving your hair crunchy. Hair was manageable and soft when sprayed on clean hair

actually did nothing for my hair, it's actually flatter that if I didn't use!

I apply the thickening spray at my roots before every blowout! It is light weight but has such a meaningful impact and gives me volume that lasts for days! I bring the mini size one with me on trips also.

Love this product and adore the travel size!
Gloria from ME
This did nothing for my short straight hair. Was hoping for some volume or 'thickening' of some kind, it did not make a difference. Disappointed. Glad I only purchased the small travel size. Will return.

I never leave reviews but i am with this. It definitely adds volume! The picture look more than reality but i have stick straight hair that struggles to be thick. I'll put this on after a shower and let it air dry some then blow dry. I see the biggest difference when I curl my hair, they last all day. I even have gotten more compliments on my hair since you using this.
Saori from California
I don't mean to buck the reviews on how this doesn't work for air drying, but I love it when doing a combination air dry/ diffusion. Use with the other thickening products, my hair really plumps up for a wavy, mermaid beach style. I spray on wet hair, especially towards roots, comb through, then rake a small bit of Don't Blow It though my locks. When it's pretty much dry, I apply the salt infusion spray to ends, etc.
Amanda from Ann Arbor, MI
I have slightly wavy hair that I let air dry. It is fine but long so this spray plumps it up and makes it look like I have very full hair. I love it! I don't blow dry so it's nice to find a thickening spray that isn't only heat activated.
Jen from Virginia
I have been using this thickening spray for about three years. I saw a travel bottle at Ulta and decided to try it; so glad I did! It works great on my thinning hair. The secret to using it is to not use too much, brush through hair after applying and use a brush (round brush, for example) while drying. If you don't use correctly, you will have stiff hair, but this is the norm for any styling product, in my experience. My bff loves how it bumps up my hair so she has ordered it for herself.
Roxanne from Birmingham AL
All you smell is the alcohol ingredient. I will not purchase it again.

I have long fine hair and have tried countless volumizing mousses over the years. This is the first volumizing spray I have tried and is hands down my favorite. It adds volume and light control without weighing down my hair. Please never stop making this!!!
meganb692 from Purlear
I don't reach for this as much as other thickening products. It makes my hair very sticky/tacky. I think other products do a better job without leaving the tacky feel.
mandee10 from Bremen, OH
I really liked the way this product boosted volume. The scent is not overpowering and it did not leave a residue in my hair. I took off one star because the spray nozzle kept getting clogged.

I have fine thin hair and this product gives my hair thickness and volume. It is easy to use for styling with blow dryer and does not make your hair stiff or fell overweighted.

This stuff is AMAZING! Really adds the volume. I use this with the shampoo and conditioner. When I blow dry my hair it's like I have a salon blowout!
Joyce from North Carolina
The store associate was so helpful. The product had been moved since I was last there so when I went where I thought it was, it wasn't there. I asked an associate for help. I love the B&B product for my hair. It helps to manage my curls.
jilliand18 from Havana, FL
I was expecting a lot from this spray and it let me down. It has a very overwhelming scent of alcohol and it definitely dried my hair out. It was also hard to get this product through my hair. I wouldn't recommend this product to others.
chelseyjeannine2 from Homestead, FL
I sort of liked this, it felt like it was helping a little with volume, but just a little. I think this is a mediocre product but everyone is different.
Diane from RSM, CA
Couldn't tell any difference and I tried it on very wet hair, slightly wet hair and then close to dry hair.
MJ from Lebanon, Pa
This product is overpriced for what it claims to do. I saw absolutely no difference in results from when I use Suave root lifter.
