Hair Trend Alert! Elevate Your Roots

One of the newest trends in Hollywood is using a "root lifter" to give their hair extra volume and lift.  You may have seen stars such as Kim Kardashian and AnnaLynne McCord sporting BIG hair lately.

What exactly is a Root Lifter?

A root lifter is a styling aid that has a quicker drying time than most volumizers.  It is dispensed as a mousse or spray rather than a gel.  A gel is too heavy and will hold down the hair.
