20 Best Volumizing Hair Products – 2022 Reviews

by Noelene Peters

I’ve discussed and given you so many fantastic products which are all top quality to choose from when it comes to Volumizing products.

I’m going to break it down even further into my best ones per category to make it easier for you to choose when purchasing the perfect product for your hair to enable you to volumize hair with straightener or even just to simply blow dry your hair or leave it to dry naturally.

Best Volumizing Mousse

Mongoose Impasse Mountain Bike


  • Designed for precision application
  • Will give you high volume root lift
  • Apply on damp hair directly onto the roots before you blow dry
  • Gives volume exactly where you need it
  • Is a light hold mousse and won’t make your hair sticky.
  • I’m still rating this as one of the top Volumizing mousse’s on the market today



  • This mousse is infused with collagen to make your hair feel instantly thicker and denser.
  • The collagen formula also adds elasticity for overall strong hair that holds its style
  • Apply to damp hair and style thereafter
  • Promises high volume. 
  • Is weightless and eliminates frizz.

Remember all volume mousse needs to be applied to the root area only.  It doesn’t foam as much as an ordinary mousse does so don’t spray too much on the roots or you will struggle to blow-wave it.

German innovation….I’ve always been a huge fan of Schwartzkopf products.



  • Use 1-2 pumps in damp hair and rough dry or blow dry
  • Adds high shine
  • Does not leave flaking or a sticky residue
  • Smooths your hair and minimizes frizz

I’ve always been a fan of Paul Mitchell and the great range of Professional products they have to offer.  The research that goes on behind the scenes will prove on your hair how fantastic their range is.

This company has been made offers to sell by large corporations, but its founders believe in their vow to stand by their professional beauty industry. Now that’s commitment.

This is a very versatile product and not to be overlooked.  I like the idea of the product being able to regenerate with heat again.  This avoids applying or using too much product which can weigh your hair down.

TIGI Catwalk Root Booster


  • For curly and frizzy hair.
  • Specifically, for use on your root area.
  • Apply this spray during styling to create volume.
  • For more root lift, apply and massage spray directly onto your roots while your hair is still damp

Redken Guts 10


  • Is suitable for all hair types including thick fine, colour-treated and natural hair
  • Designed to give hair root lift effect for all over volume with a natural feel
  • It adds texture and body 
  • Controls frizz
  • Apply to towel-dried hair.

This range in Redken works on a numbering system of 0-32 hold factors.  0 being no hold and so it goes up.  Watch out for your numbering if you want a strong hold you need to buy in the 20’s to 30’s numbering.  A 10 level is a soft hold.

I’m really happy with what I’ve covered in the lines of the best volumizing mousse and volumizing sprays available to you.

I’m going to finish off with one more list of Volumizing products we haven’t spoken about which are volume powders.  These are great products too.

They are not to be used on wet hair but as a finishing product after you have blow dried your hair.  They can be used in conjunction with your volumizing mousse or volumizing spray or just on their own.

It is far easier using products that can help you achieve your look quickly than trying to get volume in hair naturally, it’s a lengthy task when you have these at your disposal.

These products can also be used to add volume to curly hair roots however I would more than likely stick to the volumizing mousse and volumizing sprays for curly hair.
