I would say yes it is ok for dry hair......my hair tends to be dry and I think this product actually may help ....having said that ..I am not a hair stylist...my hair stylist had advised me that in Summer months you can use certain products ...and in Winter you may need to back away from using products such as mousse, etc ...at least for my hair....so you might want to ask your hair stylist what they thnk ....hope that helps!

Doubtful: my hair is fine but oily and I like that it doesn't seem to add any emollients. You'd probably like the styling cream: it adds fullness but not poof and does add conditioner.

Question
Can this be used with the No Frizz Styling Cream
I currently use the No Frizz Styling Cream. Can I add the Root Lifting Spray or will they cancel each other out (one flattening, while the other tries to volumize)?

I've used them together. I have the same problem, I get frizz along with my thin fine hair. They work great together for me.

I use both. I use the styling creme first, while my hair is still wet. After I blow dry my hair about half dry using my fingers only, I section it off to style. I spray a little Root Lifting Spray on the underside of each section, use a round brush and finish drying/styling. I get a beautifully smooth style with lots of lift and volume that lasts.

Product use
If I use the Root Lifting spray, do I need to use the Thickening Cream, or is it one or the other usage? I have been using only the Thickening Cream, but would like to try the Lifting spray, but really don't want to have to use both.

I have both and have used them together and separately. When I use them together, I prefer to use the root lifter on the roots and the thickener on the rest of my hair. If I use the thickener alone, I used it all over including the roots. The root lifter is a bit more of a styling product than the thickener. That is, the thickener plumps up the hair slightly but doesn't aid in styling at all. The root lifter will help a lot if you are going to curl or round-brush blow dry or something. I just use thickener when I'm going natural. You can also use the root-lifter alone, but I only put it on my roots, not the rest of my hair.

I don't think this product works at all like the thickening cream. I use both and the thickening cream works the best for thicker fuller hair.

I don't know what the texture of the rest of your hair is, but I would choose the root lifter over the thickener. I feel like if I can get volume and lift at the root, the rest of my hair is completely different.

answer 5
You can use them together, I have. But use just a dime sized dollop of Thickening Cream. Then use the spray lightly! If you go for a normal amount of both at the same time, your hair will feel heavy and covered with product. What I usually do is if I'm air drying, I use the cream. It air dries great and gives a textured look to your hair. If you are blow drying, use the root lift spray. It works great! It adds lift and thickness to your hair at one time but only when blow drying. It does not work well when air drying.

I've actually got it in my hair right now and I'm letting it dry naturally. It works pretty well, but not a good as when you blowdry upside down. When I do dry it naturally I clip my hair in really attractive ( ;) ) sections so it isn't drying flat to my head. That seems to help give it a boost as well.

Its probably best to blow dry it to get the best looking results. But it will still keep you going longer between shampoos and give you a bit of root lift if you just spray it in and leave it.

Try the Thickening Cream for air drying, it works great! I tried using this and air drying and just didn't get the lift that I did when I blew it out . I did try it on dry hair, a quick light spritz to the roots and fast blow dry will make your hair look fresh even when it's not.

Mousse gives a little more texture to your hair but this product actually lifts the root area giving you more volume to your hair, especially on top.

The root lifting spray shouldn't be used thru-out the hair because it may get a little sticky or tangled. The mousse can be used thru out the hair and on wet hair. I dont like to use the root lifter spray on wet hair because it gives you a some what "wet look" when it drys even if you blow dry. I love both products and use them daily :)

The mousse temporarily thickens the hair, but the lifting spray actually lifts hair from the root...to keep it from being so flat! It gives roots a little more "stiff" feeling than the mousse. Not too stiff, though! Hope this helps!

I tried both and returned both. The volume cream DOES add volume, but it made my hair dull and frizzy. The root spray is a little better, but I wouldn't advise using it all through your hair because it smells like it has a lot of alcohol in it. Neither products are great.

I wouldn't use it as an all-over volumizer. Get the Full Thickenin Cream, which will give you that fullness and body, and use the Root Lifter just on the roots. Hope that helps :o)

You can use it with any other products, but I would not mix it with other root lifters. It works well with thickening creams, like Full, but if you use it with another root lifter (something applied directly to your roots), it could bee too much. A little of this goes a long way.
