Although Full Root Lifting Spray is advertised as a great product for anyone with any hair type who wants added height and volume, this product definitely works better for people with thin and fine hair.  While it works well for many people, it doesn't work equally well for everyone.

Although advertised as a lightweight formula adding volume and height all the way to the roots, the formula's patented formula may or may not work well for everyone who uses it.

Suggested Product Use - Living Proof Full Root Lifting Spray

It's recommend the product should be sprayed (5-10 pumps) directly onto the roots of clean, towel-dried, detangled hair.  The product should be combed through from the roots to the ends.

For optimal results a thickening cream or mousse from the Living Proof line is recommended to be added on top of the Living Proof Full Root Lifting Spray.   Style as usual.
