Review: Vo5 Plump It Up Dry Backcomb Spray

You know me by now, you know how I long for voluminous hair that can only be managed by hair extensions and a bloody good hairdresser. But before I reached that level, I decided to give Vo5's Dry Backcomb Spray a go to see if I would get the hair I've been dreaming of. Now, I am ridiculously naive and obviously I imagined that I would spray this into my hair, give it a bit of a shake and immediately get hair so full of life that it should have it's own twitter account.

Alas, no. But then I do have a vast imagination and too high an expectation so it's understandable that my hair doesn't explode with volume when I use it this product. Let's talk about what it does do rather than what it doesn't!

This is what Vo5 say about their Dry Backcomb Spray:
"Instantly add fullness for amazing volume / Won't damage your hair like backcombing can / Can be used as a 'pick me up' style re-activator"

You apply it just like dry shampoo, which you can also use this product as, by spraying it into your roots from 30cm away then rub it in with your fingertips. I did this and I can't say that the results were utterly amazing but my hair did look a bit fuller in body but it didn't double in height which was what I wanted.

I can't say that it lasted very long either. Within about an hour I was back to square one again. I have read some other reviews on this product and some say that this is a miracle, some say it made no difference whatsoever and some say that this product worked better once backcombed after spraying it. Which kind of defeats the whole object of Backcomb Spray but I'll give it a try nonetheless.

Overall it made my hair look a bit fuller but not for very long. It can be used as a dry shampoo so it's a 2 in 1 product but I probably wouldn't re-purchase. The quest for volumised hair continues!
