Nanogen Root Boost Spray
One problem I have with my hair is that after a day or two of not washing it, it can look flat and weighed down especially as my hair is thick and very long. I've tried a couple of volumizing and thickening sprays as well as shampoo and conditioners that claim to boost volume but they never work for me sadly!

I am always happy to try volumizing products so when the *Nanogen Root Boost Hair Thickening Spray (£9.95, 100ml) arrived I was excited to give it a go. It claims to add volume and bounce to the hair and it also claims to be light and fast absorbing. The spray contains keratin and niacinamide which help care for your scalp.

Firstly, I like the packaging and it think it is very reasonally priced! The spray has a very liquid consistency and it has an almost hairspray scent to it. One thing that confused me about the spray was that it says that it's heat activated but then blow drying your hair is optional; so I've been applying the spray all over my towel dried hair, leaving it to dry naturally overnight as I always do then blasting it with the hair dryer for a minute or so in the morning. I find that the spray does add thickness to my hair even though it it already relatively thick which is definitely impressive although in my hair it does seem to leave a slight residue that feels like I've used a light sea salt spray - maybe I'm using too much!

Overall, I like the packaging, price and the results as it actually does make my hair both look and feel thicker and fuller which is fantastic and it's the only product that has done that to my hair! However it does also leave a slight matte feeling to my hair but that might be my fault as I may be using too much. I think this product would work so well on thinner hair as if it can add thickness and volume to an extent to my thick and very long hair then it would be amazing on thinner hair than mine. Overall rating: ★★★★☆, 4/5,

Have you tried this product? Do you have any product recommendations to add volume or thickness? 


  1. This product sounds great, I didn't even know this brand before but I like the idea of this spray, and the fact that it contains Keratin seems to be a great way to avoid baby hair flying above my head!

    1. I hadn't heard of this brand before but I really like this product x

  2. I love the sound of this hun, my hair is so thick which really flattens and weighs down the roots so I'm always in need of a boost!


  3. oo this sounds perfect! Definitely need to check this out! x

  4. I have really thin and flat hair so it sounds like this spray would be a good thing to try out. x
