Umberto Giannini's Backcomb in a Bottle.

Today was the first day that I tried Umberto Giannini's Glam Hair Backcomb in a Bottle. I went and brought the 30ml bottle (£1.99 - travel size) instead of the full sized because I wasn't to sure if it was going to like the effect it gave me. My hair was looking a bit flat this morning and i thought it would be nice to give it some sort of a boost so I reached for this.

The directions on the back really aren't very clear. They just tell you to spray it about 6cm away from the hair that you want to look backcombed and that's it! I mean if i just sprayed this straight onto my hair I feel it would have just worked as hairspray. So I decided to pick up pieces of my hair, like I would do if I was backcombing it, and then spray it underneath and scrunch my hair whilst it was still wet from the spray to style it. 
I was actually quite surprised about the scent of the spray. It smelt nice to some extent, but I also felt like I was gassing myself out with it. Also, when applying this spray, it just felt like I was spraying water onto my hair. It was very fine and I was wondering if it was going to give me any hold at all. Thankfully it did harden a little and I could feel the hold that it was giving me, which felt strangely nice.
Here is a look at the effect i achieved after using this spray (excuse the editing. I recently brought a new iPhone app called snapseed that I'm experimenting with.)

I feel that it definitely gave volume to my roots and gave reasonable results for what it was trying to achieve. I don't think that this works as well as back combing, but maybe I just need to refine my technique on how I use it. If you use this product leave a comment below and let me know how it works for you. I have really thick hair so it takes a lot to get my hair to stay in place. If you have thin hair i feel that this might work better for you. From first impressions, i like it but I will see how it works over time.
