KMS California Add Volume Volumizing Spray

add volume to limp hair spray gel

I received this Volumizing Spray in my January Birchbox and was initially not really looking forward to using it! I don't often blow dry my hair or feel as though products like this really do much, so this spray had a double barrier to break if it was going to get close to my affections. Cutting to the chase though, I've used this three times now (and I get the impression this little bottle probably only has another one or  two applications in it) and I can admit that I wasn't disappointed with the product's volumizing effects. I used this on damp hair (at the roots) and then blow dried my hair. You can also layer this product up for added volume, and I gave this a try when I last used this by adding a second layer of product after I'd semi-dried my hair. Layering up the product didn't leave my hair feeling heavy or greasy and it did add extra volume to one layer of the spray. However, one layer does lift my roots noticeably so I wouldn't normally feel the need for this extra 'top up'. Overall, I really do like this product. Unlike other volumizing products I've tried (all which have been highstreet, drugstore brands) the packaging has held up amazingly, the spray is easy to use and the product applies lightly and evenly. This isn't a cheap volumizing spray but if like me you only use these sorts of products for night's out or special occasions then having a reliable product that is buildable in its applications offers you a great deal of  options. I would definitely recommend this volumizing spray compared to all of the others that I've tried, however, at this moment in time I won't be running out to purchase a full-size version of this as I really am trying to steer clear of heat styling. 

You can find KMS' California Add Volume Volumizing Spray (200ml) in Birchbox's online store for £14.85. 

What's your favourite volumizing hair product?



  1. I have been using John Frieda's Volumising Spray and I love it. Judging from your description I think they are quite similar.

    P.S. I am having a giveaway on my blog. Do check it out. :) x

    1. Thanks for letting me know! I'll need an affordable replacement after I finish this :) xx

  2. I also got a sample of this and tried it. It works amazing for me as well. I felt like it worked better than anything I have ever tried! I love this stuff......
