  • does not weigh hair down
  • smells great
  • hair do not feel greasy the whole day
  • hair feels a bit fuller
  • works really well if you plan to do a "poufy" hairdo
  • one bottle lasts as a little amount is enough
  • not available locally and too expensive to have it shipped here
  • if your hair is not layered, you won't feel much of the volume
  • won't do anything for you if you're not into volumized hair

I don't have thin or thick hair to start with, my hair is just right.  But when I had my hair layered,  I've thought of giving this product a try and so far, it does enhance the look of the layers done by the stylist.  I am not into big hair though so I don't use this as much as I wanted to.  I've given this up to a friend of mine who has thin and limp hair.   She loves it and she told me she will repurchase via a friend in US.

This product in my opinion works for well anyone who wants a bit of volume without the weight or the greasiness.  I haven't seen any similar product locally or I may not be looking hard enough, but this is a product that works but I'm not a fan of it due to my personal reason of not liking the thick looking hair :)


From Nick Chavez
  • after shampooing, apply a dime-sized amount into palms, maassage into hair and leave in.
  • on dry hair, rub a dime-sized amount into palms and massage into hair and scalp, leaving product in hair.
  • before bed time, brush dry hair thoroughly, dispense a dime-size amount into palms of hands and massage into hair, do not rinse.
From AMW
  • use a pea sized amount only
  • test onto your hair which one works better, applied on wet hair, dry hair or before bedtime.  I like it applied on dry hair on my own experience.
  • if this product works for you, ask for a friend or relatives who live in the US to purchase this for you
  • try to avoid applying onto the root area, our humidity will weigh down our hair or make our hair looks greasy
Will I repurchase?
No, again, I'm not a "volume" person

Where to purchase and how much?

CVS website for $22.000 (approx Php1,012) for 8oz.

Are you into sleek, straight hair? 
Or full wavy hair?
I'd go for any!  Depending on my mood :)

Keep smilin'

Stay happy!


  1. Hmm, a little pricey, and the shipping will kill me! I guess there are other local brands that compare, no? =) Thanks for the review, N, and have a blessed Holidays!!!


  2. the cream sounds a lil' "greasy" to me. :X hehe.

  3. wow that's really expensive, i think i'll just settle with what i can find here :)

    but you are so lucky with your hair :)

    mine is so thin and limp, you can almost see my scalp,.

    i'm not really wishing for a very thick hair, just the right amount of volume and body, smoothness and shine :)

  4. thanks for the review. My hair is fine and limp and desperately needs some volume. But since it's not layered I'm not sure this will help much. But I'm glad it works for you.

  5. Oh I am always after product to add volume, my hair can get very dull and limp so this would be great!!

    Happy New Years to you too! Hope 2010 brings you only the best :) xo

  6. Dang, yes, I'm sure we have something locally :) Happy Holidays D! :)

    Sue, it's actually NON greasy at all, I promise you :)

    Madelyn, oh wow..are you using any hair growth stuffs? And be careful with chemicals, do not use styling tools too much too!

    Gio, I think even with non layered hair, it'll still give a bit of boost :)

    Sarah, :) thanks dear!

  7. Actually, I have tried only some of growth hair products. But they still won't work for me.

    I even bought a mousse, but unfortunately, it won't wokr for my hair (or maybe, I am not really a pro when using a mousse LOL)

    Currently, I am using Sunsilk anti-flat shampoo, i stil have to wait to see the results :)

    I'll keep in mind to stay away from chemicals :)
