Dove Oxygen Moisture Root Lift Spray (review)

I'm always looking for a little more root lift, a bit more height and extra volume so Dove's Root Lift Spray seemed to hold a lot of appeal. It's designed for use by people with fine, flat hair and promises to add up to 95% more volume and 'targets roots where hair tends to be weighed down'. With continued use you should get more body and greater fullness.

It's easy enough to use, and can be applied to wet or dry hair. The spray jettisons a fine mist which covers the entire scalp in just a few pumps. I can't say I'm particularly enamoured by the fragrance but it's basically inoffensive. After spraying you massage in then style as normal – with or without heat. (Using heat should give you extra volume.)

Personally, I thought this product was absolutely useless – but I say that with a caveat that it might not be for my hair type after all. More on that later. My hair didn't feel thicker or fuller, it had no more height or bounce and the amount of volume was exactly the same. It didn't matter if I used it with a hair dryer or not, nor did it make any difference if I used it on wet or dry hair.

Perhaps my hair isn't fine or thin enough for it to work? Some other reviewers seemed to like it, though, so it may work for you but it's certainly not a product I'll be trying again. At over six pounds a bottle (for 150 ml) it's not exactly a bargain, either, and don't even mention the words 'natural' or 'eco-friendly'.

Easy to use
No noticeable effects whatsoever

Not a natural hair styling option
