I use this product on those days when I need to wash my hair, but I'm going somewhere and want it styled. I spray it right on the roots and lift up my top layer to get the roots underneath. I let it sit for about 2 minutes and then I finger through it and brush it out! It adds volume and absorbs all of my oils! I keep one in my bathroom and one in my glove box in the car! SO helpful for on the go!!
