It is a dry mist that creates instant textured height and volume to the hair. It has a dry shampoo texture with the hold of a hairspray and is not sticky.
I apply it at the roots of the hair and then use either my fingers to massage and lift the hair or a comb to back comb for more volume. I have used it on short, medium and long hair styles and on both fine and thick hair and the result is consistently good. A little goes a long way, don't use too much just one short blast is sufficient.
