    Pretty awful

    This spray definitely adds thickness but it is also quite sticky if you use too much and especially so if used on dry hair. I used it first on dry hair and then tried to get a brush through my hair and I had some breakage, which was not a good thing. However, I discovered that if I sprayed it sparingly and then brushed through it, that it didn't cause this problem It definitely adds thickness t...read moreo thin strands. I also used it on wet hair and then blow dried. I tangled my hair this way too and it's better not to try to get a brush through until it's completely dry. I experienced breakage this way too. I don't know why this product has such good reviews or what I'm doing wrong. My hair isn't fine or thin and this spray should add some dimension to it and shouldn't be causing such damage. It's been reformulated and now has alcohol in it and I found it very drying. I tried it several days in a row and I could definitely see a difference (beyond the obvious breakage) in the level of moisture. I needed to use a hydrating mask a couple of times to undue this issue. This shouldn't happen and I don't know if anyone else has reported this problem or not but I don't think this is a unique issue. I certainly don't want to use a product that causes breakage and dryness, There's simply no point, even if it increases thickness. There are other products on the market that work well (Rusk Thick works really well and doesn't cause any of these problems) so there's no reason to use this Bumble and Bumble product. Obviously the reformulation has had a negative impact. I used this many years ago and loved it so I wanted to use it again. But this isn't like it was all those years ago. It didn't behave like this or else I wouldn't have purchased it again. Years ago it was called "Thickening Spray" not "hairspray". It used to be great but Bumble and Bumble is trying to cut corners somewhere and tampered with a winning formula, probably to save cash but at the expense of their customer's hair. Take a pass on this product. If you want breakage and dryness then by all means use it. I'm returning it to Sephora. I'm pining for the old formula. I'll stick with Rusk, which works really well with none of the breakage or dryness. What a shame Bumble and Bumble. — 6 months, 4 weeks ago

    Amazing Product!

    This hairspray is absolutely amazing! My hair is quite fine and is very easily weighed down and greasy looking with most styling products, but not with this little miracle worker! You don't need much, just spritz some onto your roots and work with your fingers whilst blow drying to get an amazing result. Worth every penny! — 2 years, 9 months ago

    Where has this product been all my life!!

    I have fine hair that gets weighed down easily with alot of products, but not this one. It's easy to spray to hair and spreads out great. Manipulating your hair with this product while blowdrying is a breeze. And the end result is fantastic fullness. — 3 years, 11 months ago

    The Best

    I have truly baby-fine, unrepentantly stright hair. And, it's thin. I have tried MOST of the porducts on the market over the years, shampoos, conditioners, mouse, foam, spray, velcro rollers, hot roller, blow dyr upside down-even "body waves" back in the day when my mom insisted that was the only way. I also have big ears that stick out (!!!) so when I was young and trying for the Jan &a...read moremp;/or Marcia Brady straight hair look.....egads!!! THIS IS THE ONLY PRODUCT EVER THAT GIVES ME "REAL HAIR"!! I've tried some others since discovering the entire Bumble & Bumble "Thickening Line" (except for the new 'bedtime" serum) and when I give up the "trial period" of the others, and go back to this-it's always, "Oh, there's MY HAIR, again!" I now buy the shampoo & conditoner in the liter size, and if I could find this in that size, I would buy it too! — 3 years, 11 months ago

    The Best volumizer/Thickener

    I have tried so many volumizers and thickeners over the years for my fine hair and have never been satisfied. I decided to splurge (cause this spray is a little pricey) and I was thrilled with the results. It does not weigh my fine hair down, it thickens and adds body like no other product I have tried. — 3 years, 11 months ago
