Mark Hill Big Blow! Spray: boots (£5.99)

Mark Hill Big Blow is a volumizing spray that you spray into damp hair and then blow dry as normal. It claims to make your hair fuller and thicker. I've not actually tried a blow dry spray before, so I can't actually compare it to another product but I did find that it did what it promised.

I found it worked well at adding volume and texture to my hair without adding a ton of product. My hair is very fine and limp because its so long. I always find it ridiculously hard to style after I've washed it as it has very little texture. I blow dry it every day at the moment so Im always frustrated with the lack of volume. My hair felt alot bigger, and bouncier and didn't fall flat two seconds after spending a good half hour blow drying it with a round brush. Big Blow! is non sticky and leaves no residue in the hair which I really liked. I hate the feeling of having tons of product in my hair as it just makes it look ever more limp. I spritz this all over my hair after I've towel dryed it, concentrating the product on the roots and around the top of my head. The product claims that you "can't apply too much as it never overloads", which I think is fairly accurate as I get a bit spray happy and my hair still feels weightlessly volumized and thickened without feeling bogged down with product.

I love the packaging of the Mark Hill products, I have a few more that I'll be reviewing in time. But they are all really funky and fresh without being garish or too much. While my hair isn't reaching epic proportions it does give my hair alot more texture and volume than when I don't use it! I personally give it a thumbs up!


  1. this looks perfect for my hair! my hair gets limp easily aswell because its so long:(


  2. I'm desperate to try this! It looks amazing xxx

  3. I really want to try this! I tried the Tresemme 24hourBody blow dry earlier today for the first time and although I could notice a slight difference, this one sounds like it has a better effect :)

  4. Oh wow that sounds nice. I don't like much volume of my hair, cause I feel it over powers me lol. But this will be good for another friend of mine that likes volume. :D

  5. This sounds like a really good spray, I like volumising products but hate it when they weigh your hair down!

  8. your hair is actually perfect, would do anything for mine to look like that. great post xx

  9. I actually looked at this today when I was in Boots! Wish I'd bought it now, sounds really good! x

  11. i really like the packaging, too!
    sounds like a really nice product and it has a good price...

  12. Definitely need this i love my hair looking full and thick!

  13. Sounds great. I currently use Umberto Giannini's Backcomb in a Bottle, which is pretty good, but only when used in conjunction with actually backcombing it, which makes it a bit pointless! It does hold the backcombing in, but so would hairspray. I also find hair powders really sticky and regret it as soon as I put any on my hair, although they do work.

  14. This looks really good, I'm always looking for ways to get more volume into my hair! x

  15. definitely going to be trying this out too! reasonable price too for a product that works so well. great review! x

  16. I need to try it, as I hardly have any volume in my hair. I tried Tresemme Root Boost spray and it's pretty good, but I feel like it sometimes makes my hair look a bit greasy. Your hair always look amazing! x
