    Great product!
    Smells awesome and made my hair look really volumized and sleek – will definitely be repurchasing. Glad to have discovered this brand!

    All natural!
    Really like that this brand has all natural products – I got the shampoo in my box and bought this as well as another from Dear Clark. They all smell really good, my girlfriend actually loves this one the most – it makes her hair really bouncy and volumized, and shiny without looking greasy, which I like.

    Its great to find a product that works and is good for you, too. After receiving samples of Dear Clark wash and rinse, I had to order them and added this thickening balm to to the purchase. This stuff works exactly as their description states. It truly provides a thicker, fuller, and healthy look to my fine short hair. Can’t wait to try the other two styling products from Dear Clark.

    Thickening balm is what I NEED!
    I have fine short hair and need something to give some fullness. This stuff is awesome!

    Love Love Love this product!
    For a gal with fine hair, this product is amazing. It doesn’t add weight, and with just a pea-sized amount, it adds enough texture and lift to make that subtle but biggest difference for my hair. Would definitely purchase again!

    Doesn’t leave my hair greasy on the day after. Nice aroma, holds well even in humid conditions and adds fullness to my thinning hair.

    Really works!
    I have fine thin hair and this stuff really gives me body, plus it smells great. A dime size is all you need.

    As I’ve aged I’ve noticed my once thick hair was really not so thick anymore. I’m not a big product user and normally skip them all together but after trying this one day in the DC salon, I was sold. MY THICK LOCKS WERE BACK! Plus it smoothed every little fly-away hair and left me looking salon perfect. That’s quite a feat for a ponytail wearer like me.

    The Thickening Balm is my “go to” product and my ponytail days are long gone.

    Just ok.
    It’s a bit heavy for me, but I have fairly fine hair. The smell is nice.

    Great volume!
    I love Dear Clark products! This balm gave my hair extra texture and thickness without feeling weighed down or looking greasy. The results are definitely worth putting up with the smell, which is pretty strong but fades quickly.

    Lives Up to It’s Name!
    It will definitely thicken your hair and it smells great. I have chin length thin blonde hair and this added tons of body which was great for a night out. Not sure if I will use this everyday as I did feel like a needed to wash my hair the next day and I usually try to go 2-3 days between washes by using dry shampoo.

    Great for fine hair!
    Like this product because it thickens but doesn’t weigh down fine hair types.

    Great product, and really noticed a difference. Definitely have to work it in with the brush/dryer and a little goes a long way. First time I used it I put it on throughout and made my roots greasy looking. Now focus on ends and mid section. Helps to give a good smooth finish and hold.

    Love it!
    This came in my October box, and I tried it right away. I liked the smell and my husband thought my hair looked and smelled great!

    Love the smell!
    This product works very well, you only need a small amount, using too much can make my hair feel weighed down. Love the smell of this product.

    Didn’t work for me.
    While his product felt conditioning in my hand, it didn’t do much for me hair.

    Okay product.
    I was not completely satisfied with this product as it left my hair feeling oily. But I have oily hair anyways. The product has a menthol smell to it which is kinda overpowering.

    Goopy Balm.
    Thickening balm for fine or thinning hair. It provides the stick and give firm long lasting hold. My hair is too short to make this useful, but if I had a longer style I would use this product.

    Makes your hair greasy.
    I REALLY wanted to like this product because I have long and hopelessly dry, fine, thin, fly away hair. I tried to rub it into my towel dried hair at the scalp. It made it feel stiff and greasy. I think I will have to actually wash it out. NOT what I had hoped for.

    Works great!
    I have fine hair that’s poker straight & no body at all. This gave me such fullness & body all day long. This is now going to be a everyday morning routine.

    Does the job.
    I don’t really use products like this much, but this product is effective and does the job.

    LOVE!!!! Where have you been all my life (especially in the 80’s)? A little bit goes a long way too. I have super-fine hair and this really does the trick. Even when the humidity is 90% I still have good fullness. This product also helps hold your style all day. So happy I found you my Dear Clark!

    I’m so happy I found this product. I love that it’s so natural! Smells good! Makes my hair feel so soft! And big surprise – it actually works to volumize my hair!! Thanks to this product, I won’t be going back to other volumizers I used to have, especially any harsh chemical ones.

    I’m a guy with baby fine hair and I’ve tried virtually every product known to man trying to find something that would all volume and thickness without drying out or making my hair look oily.

    This product is UNBELIEVABLE. My hair has never looked better…never. I used just a tiny amount and my hair is thicker, easier to work with and after apply a little paste it goes into place nicely.

    I’m so pleased that I ordered 12 more tubes so that if they ever stop making it, I’ll have a multi-year supply.
