I missed my bus the other night and used it as an excuse to pop into Boots to see if they had the fabled Backcomb In A Bottle in stock...it set me back £5.61. I don't care how amazing it turns out to be - I would only use it sparingly at this price for only 200mls!
The container is beautiful and there's another lid under the silver one. I've only used it once so far, and my hair was curly so I couldn't really work with it that much to see the full effect. It seemed very sticky and seemed to work pretty much like a traditional hairspray. Also the smell is vile - just pure chemicals with no hint of 'parfam'!
It claims to be suitable for all hair types and deliver instant texture and the volume of backcombed hair without having to wreck your hair.
So I'll have a fuller review for you soon after I've tried it on my hair in a few different ways, but I'd hold your horses on getting this until you've read a good few reviews...I literally just bought into the name and didn't consult blogland as much as I normally do before buying something! I suspect that some backcombing will be necessary, but you may not have to do as much as normal and it will hopefully provide extremely firm hold.
