Briogeo Blossom and Bloom Ginseng and Biotin Volumizing Spray is for all hair types and for those with fine or thin hair texture that lacks volume. This product claims to immediately give fuller-looking hair and volume, extend time between washes and encourage thickness in the long term.
Directions state to spray throughout damp hair focusing on the roots, then blow dry and style.

Witch hazel and lemon extract absorb excess oil to extend time between washes. Ginseng and ginger root stimulate blood flow to scalp and hair follicles to promote growth and strength. Biotin promotes growth and can strengthen the hair follicle. Malodextrin coats each hair strand to increase the diameter and create the appearance of fuller hair.
My hair is wavy, fine and has been thinning for the last couple years on the top of my head. I have an oily scalp. After a hair wash, I can usually wear it down for 2 days and up for 2 days, then need to wash it again because it is too oily.
Usually when I blow dry and style my hair it initially looks good, then goes flat halfway through the day. With the Blossom and Bloom Volumizing Spray my hair has so much more lift after blow drying and still has volume on the second day. By the third day there is less volume, but my scalp isn’t as oily as usual. I can wear my hair down for 4 days and up for 2 before I have to wash it again. Overall, my hair appears thicker when using this product. I haven’t been using it long enough to speak to long term growth and thickness, though I’m not sure it would actually make hair thicker.
I tried the spray on damp hair without blow drying as well and got better volume than without, but of course, blow drying enhances the volume.
The scent is orange and ginger – a fresh, clean scent and not chemical-like or artificial-smelling. My hair feels softer when using this product; it doesn’t go on crunchy or greasy.
I don’t have many must-have products, but the Blossom and Bloom Volumizing Spray is now on the list. I will definitely be repurchasing.
