The best thing about the colour wow products is the fact they don’t strip the hair of colour and help protect and prolong the life of colour treated hair. Raise the root is a hair thickening and lifting spray that can be applied directly to the roots with the handy spray nozzle for easy application.

Thicken and Lift Spray: Color Wow  c/o
I don’t normally use many products on my hair apart from natural oils on the ends of my hair to prevent split ends and frizziness, and then a volume spray or serum on the roots for lift and bounce. I was excited to try this thickening spray from Colour Wow, as the other products (Shampoo/Conditioner and Styling Cream) have really impressed me from the line and knew this would not be a letdown. Now that my hair is getting longer by the week, I have noticed my hair lacking more and more volume, making it hard to get natural volume now without the use of products. 
I would apply this to the roots before blow drying and massage it in gently using my hands, just so there’s even coverage for maximum results. This product does noticeably lift the roots and leaves my hair with more volume and shine, without it weighing my hair down as the day goes on! 
What’re your thoughts on this? Do you use something similar?

    I know it sucks! I want long hair so bad but I look silly when my hairs flat :’D I look better with volume but it just doesn’t seem to be working in my favour! Maybe I will cut it shorter if it gets ‘really’ flat x

    You always have such lovely photos on your blog posts! I don’t need my hair to get any thicker (haha) but it’s good to know of products to recommend to others! x Jenn | Every look tells a story.

    You always have loads of volume but this sounds pretty nifty! I probably need more volume but I don’t know if it would suit me!? Ha!

    This is interesting to read as like you’ve said, you tend not to use products on your hair apart from natural oils and I’m very similar. I use argan oil on the ends and protein spray before blow drying, but that is normally it.. I’m kind of intrigued by this product as I’m always look to improve my hair’s volume! 🙂

    This product seems amazing, I find my hair is always so lifeless even when I do cut it. Guess my hair just hates me LOL sad thing is my hair was always like this even as a kid my mother would say how she wouldn’t know what to do with my hair haha. Need to try this out, I hope it will help!
