My hair is very fine so I am always looking for products that will give it more volume, lift, and life. I was very skeptical when I saw the claim on the bottle about “clinically proven to instantly increase volume by 105%.” Not to mention, it is supposed to last 48 hours! I thought to myself this is a perfect product to test and validate. It is expensive, but if it works I’ll be ecstatic.
I have shoulder length hair so I sprayed this product approximately 12-14 times from root to tip throughout my hair and then blow dried as I normally would. I could tell a difference in the fullness and thickness of my hair instantly! Not only that, this product held the style of my hair better than other volumizers I have tried. Whether I was curling my hair under or flipping it up with some curls, the Bamboo Volume 48-Hour Sustainable Volume Spray kept the style and volume in place better and longer than any other product I have tried. And, to top it off, my hair was soft, not hard or sticky. It looked healthy, shiny, and full – what more could I ask for? Nothing!
Thank you, Alterna! Thank you for making a product that does everything for those of us who weren’t born with thick hair. Your Bamboo Volume 48-Hour Sustainable Volume Spray rocks! Too bad I’m in the business of testing products or I would only use this spray. But, on days that I want a guaranteed good hair day, I’ll be using Bamboo Volume 48-Hour Sustainable Volume Spray.
