I would say that this  Bumble and bumble. Thickening Spray delivers! I tested it out on damp hair after showering. I sprayed it throughout my hair specifically from mid shaft to the ends.
I blow dried my hair on a medium/low heat setting using  The Wet Brush Original Detangler . I found that as I was brushing my hair sort of tugged and snagged a bit but it wasn't uncomfortable or damaging to my hair. After my blow dry my hair was absolutely plumper than before. My hair is color treated and very wispy on the ends to the point where it is almost see through (eek!!)... but when I used this spray my ends looked fuller and not as wispy! So for me that was a huge sign that this spray actually did something to change my hair. 
If you have fine hair or color treated hair I think you may just love this product. I got this in my December Sephora playbox.
(Cons):
The only can I can think of is that it is a bit on the tacky side, basically smells like hairspray and can make your hair feel tangled so brush it gently. That is how I got the best result! I wanted to share a before and after but the photo doesn't really show a difference -YOU- can see it's more a difference that -I- can feel if that makes sense?!

I was not impressed with this product at all. I received it in a subscription box service and decided to try it out. So far, all of the times I have tried it I have been very disappointed. I have naturally thin hair, but my hair is wavy, frizzy, and has lots of volume. My hair looks thick but definitely isn’t. After I used this product I saw no difference in how my hair looked. It looked completely normal. Others with a different hair type may have better luck than I did, but for me this product did not perform.

I received this is my Birchbox this month. I was excited to try it because my hair has thinned out alot since having my 5 month old. The scent is very overpowering at first. As in it made me choke. It is very medicinal smelling. Comparable to Robitussin. Once I dried it it did smell a bit better but it left my hair feeling somewhat stiff which I was afraid of so I didn't even use that much. I didn't notice much difference in the thickness or volume of my hair. I wouldn't purchase this product in the future.

I have oily hair that needs daily washing. In recent years, my hair has started to thin more than I like so I've been struggling with volume lately too. Because of my oily hair, it's difficult to find products that don't weigh it down. I've tried a variety of leave in treatments but Bumble & Bumble's Thickening Spray gives me the best results. My only minor criticism is that it doesn't smell awesome. It doesn't smell bad, but it doesn't smell great.

I loved this product! I have fine hair and this pre-styler worked great! I thought the product had a great price point. I didn't notice any lingering scent with this product and there wasn't any residual flaking. It was easy to use, spray directly onto towel dried hair and it volumized and help my style stay in. I highly recommend  Bumble and bumble. Thickening Spray

I find many products like this do not live up to my expectations, however this product has helped so much every time I use it!! I've used it on other people who have fine textured hair or have lower density. It helps add so much body to the hair and gives it a much Fuller look. I spray it on wet hair and blow dry the hair up to help add more volume. Love it!!

I ended up finding this at Marshall's and I have to say for a hair spray I really like it. I feel like the bottle is different from most hair spray bottles but I didn't find it harder to use at all. The sprayer is also very nice. It doesn't shoot out product at you, it just gives you that nice spray. It does smell odd. Like it's not a strong smell but it does smell different. That's really the only downfall. I used it to scrunch my hair and it worked great. It didn't weigh my hair down or make it feel crunchy which was a plus. The hold on it is really great. It's really pricy but if you can find a deal on this I would take it.

This product does exactly what it says : thickening! I sprayed this all over my hair while it was wet and after a blow dry my hair looked so big! Even after straightening it out my hair still had way more volume than it usually does. Love this!

This works great! It does exactly what it says it will do. It is a bit pricy but if you are looking for something strong then this is it. Personally I have thick long black hair and don’t feel like I need to continue to buy this product because a little goes a long way and the bottle I purchased a while back is still not even half way. This gives some good volume .

This product was just okay for my hair. I had hoped it would provide a little more volume, and while it did provide some I found that it didn’t last very long. I will say there was no stiffness or stickiness with this product which was definitely a plus!
