Best volumizer

I received a small tube of this for Christmas. Loved it right away. It isn’t sticky,, or funky. It helps with shine and gives some body to my super fine hair. I ordered the larger size. Worth ever penny

Hands Down - Brilliant!

I have been using this product for years.
I have fine, thin, dead straight hair often oily as the day goes on.
I love this product so so much I keep coming back.

Controlled hair

Love Mr Smith, no more fly away hair now. I use such a tiny amount for great results.

Love the Foundation

I've been using this product for quite some time. I was able to get it from a salon I used to frequent. This is one of the best products for my hair. I have wavy thin hair and the foundation adds beautiful volume. I'm pretty sure most hair types would love it too.


Best stuff ever. Apply to damp hair then blowdry into shape. It is a bit dear, but you deserve it.
