I have flat, thin hair and am always looking for a good spray that will give my hair the added volume it needs and not have to spend a fortune. This product has been great for my hair. I like to use a volume lift spray before I blow dry my hair, and then I use this spray after blow drying. My hair is cut short in a bob like style and I simply put my head upside down and spray and then comb it into place once it is dry. I usually flat iron some of the wild pieces and then use this spray as a finishing spray as well. It is a hard hold spray and I really do not have to use much to get the look I need, but be careful because if you spray too close or too much, it will make your hair hard. It would be a great product to keep an up-do in place. This product is reasonably priced and it really lasts a long time, so I think it is a great value for what you get. I have found that it is becoming more difficult to buy the product and I really hope they are not thinking about discontinuing it.
