I have normal-thin, pin-straight, long hair. I have been having a lot of problems creating volume with my hair, whether I blow-dry it or curl it with my wand. I have not been wanting to tease my hair much, trying to use that as a last resort. I was very excited that I got this in my monthly Birchbox. It was amazing! It has a great hold without being too stiff. There was slight stiffness, but it was perfect for my curls, and roots. It gave me a lot of volume! I was very impressed with how my curls lasted with this hairspray, as my hair is very straight and curls typically do not last long. I was going on 10 hours and it still looked great!
