Not sure what this other reviewer did or used but this product is the bomb. My stylist used this on me and it gave immediate shine and great flexible control - kind of like a dry pomade. Another super innovative formula from R+Co!
Meh--Another R+Co Much Ado About Nothing
This is going to be the last time I buy the R+CO hype. I read several rave reviews of this new product on beauty blogs and in magazines---I had high hopes. But it basically does nothing but leave your hair sticky and clumped up. I don't see any shine, and it isn't texture--it is just goop. VERY disappointed. If you have fine hair and were hoping for a miracle product, keep looking because this is NOT it.
I love it, but it’s not for everyone!
I received this in one of BB’s limited edition collections. The previous month, I’d received the R+Co dry shampoo spray, which I liked enough to reconsider my attachment to Amika’s Perk Up. I agree with the reviewers who had unfavorable comments—it IS sticky and it IS very hairspray like. I personally like that because my hair is fine and I’m always trying to build volume. I DO use this in place of hairspray. But I also spray it throughout my hair like other texturizing sprays to get more oomph. I like this better than Oribe’s dry texturizing spray and better than Amika’s texturizing spray.
I wanted to love it but...
It is just too sticky. I used it on my dry, flat, fine hair, and it acted like more of a hairspray. I've used many texture sprays in the past, but this one threw me off. I ended up having to brush it all out and my hair felt crunchy. I am hoping it works better on wet hair. The smell is lovely and it did add some shine, so not a total loss.
My advice would be not to use this on your roots as I did.
My hair is now a trophy...
WOW. Saw this product at Saks and was instantly attracted to the beautiful packaging. Once I tried it, I noticed instant change in texture but also had shine (which I think most texture sprays are lacking). This is going to be my new staple in my hair care routine - using my Birchbox points to purchase as we speak :)
