The best hair gel I've used
Posted by Reviewer1068365 on Dec 01, 2008
I have thin hair and I need all the volume I can get. I've tried products from companies like Abba and Pantene, as well as several other brands, and nothing works as well as this volumizing gel. I still need a finishing hair spray to lock in the volume, but each time I try something else, I end up turning back to Giovanni. One caveat: Be sure to follow the directions to use "a small amount." Using too much will weigh your hair down.

It has very light hold....Great thickner but very flaky....once it dries out all you see is falkes and it very embarassing...
This product is wonderful!

I have baby fine, stick straight hair. This product gives amazing volume and shine. I used too much product the first time and my hair was sticky and it flaked so just remember that a little bit goes a very long way... which is not a bad thing! The price is great for a chemical free/organic product.

I have thinning hair and Giovanni Hair Thickener Style Gel definitely gave me the volume I needed to make my hair look fuller. I highly recommend it.
Gives good results sometimes...

I think this works best if you just use it once in a while... Some days it has given me GREAT volume and such a nice finish, other days it weigh my hair down. Might be that it leaves a lot of residue without a good cleansing shampoo. I also belive that it's better for shorter hair above the shoulders.

I love this works really well on my fine long straight hair makes it look like about double when i blow dry with it in and stays that way until I wash it every 2nd day, have to wash it every day without it.

Makes my hair too soft. Giovanni Styling Gel works better on my fine hair.

This product gives my hair thickness, but at the cost of softness. In my opinion, this product is not good for everyday use, but certainly works for styles that require a lot of hold (just don't expect your lover to run their fingers through your hair and not grimace).
Runny & Flakey
Posted by Reviewer1837551 on May 14, 2008
This is very runny; be careful when you go to use it, it will come out quickly leaving you with a lot more in your palm than you would like. Does give body, but it also leaves flakes which made me itch quite a bit. Passed it on to my daughter in college. Jason's was much better, should have listened to my husband when he said "if it works, stick with it".
A Bit Disappointed
Posted by Reviewer1130620 on Jun 05, 2008
Well, I thought I'd try it but haven't been impressed. I now know I prefer the putty-type hair gel, as opposed to the wet-watery ones like this. I have thin hair, and it didn't offer much volume for me. One last complaint is that it seems to keep dripping out of the plastic bottle no matter what I do. It may be fine for others, but I won't be re-ordering.
