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.

on Full Root Lifting Spray
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 use the spray instead of the thickening cream and it works well on my layered bob.
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.

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 started with the creme but found it a little too heavy from my heavy hair. This spray is great! I like it better because it is not creamy and really does the job!
