I have been using Nexxus Hydra-Light for about a week now. A little bit about me so you can know who this review is coming from. I am 25 and I have shoulder-length hair that is genetically very thin. In fact I have yet to go to a hairstylist who does not comment on how thin my hair is. I do not dye my hair but I use a flat iron daily for styling.
There are 4 products in the Hydra-Light series. There is a shampoo, conditioner, leave-in treatment, and a 'root-lift mist'. I have used all of these products daily for the last several days. I shower at night so I use the shampoo, conditioner, and leave-in treatment at night and then the mist in the morning prior to styling with my flat iron. The first thing I noticed about the shampoo was the smell. It is a very unique smell but it smells so good. I don't like products with overly fake floral or very strong scents but Nexxus Hydra-Light has this very light coconutty and clean crisp scent that I just love. Even my husband commented on it. A small portion of both the shampoo and conditioner were all my hair needed and they worked well. After I showered and towel-dried my hair I applied a dollar coin sized amount of the leave-in treatment to my hair and just let it dry naturally. It wasn't oily or sticky – just went on nice and clean. I have a very sensitive scalp but these products didn't cause any irritation. In the morning I spray the root-mist on and then some heat protection spray before styling and I felt like I got a good lift from the Hydra-Light mist. The best part is that my hair isn't as dry or frizzy anymore. It feels softer and my scalp isn't as dry or irritated. I got several compliments on my hair for the first few days I used it so I know that it is giving me the appearance of fuller hair. The product is a little expensive but it works and smells so good I am going to continue buying it.

Nexxus states that this line gives you "Weightless moisture for hair that flows. An advanced hair care system full of moisture, free of heaviness. Infused with lightweight, deep-sea minerals, Hydra Light gives hair advanced hydration without weighing it down - 85% more fullness and body." I do NOT think that it is the right product line for my hair, and I am reviewing it from that point of view. I have very thick, very "heavy" hair that goes past my shoulder blades. I believe this product is intended for people with fine, limp hair; those who have trouble with tangles and breakage because their hair is fragile and also struggle with moisturizing without weighing hair down and making it greasy.
The Hydra-Light Root Lift Mist "targets roots to lift hair for added fullness and body, providing hair with up to 4X volume boost." This was a major miss for me. My hair is just too heavy and thick for such a light product to lift my roots; most heavy mousses don't even do a great job at lifting my roots and giving me volume. It did not give me volume in any way, shape, or form. One positive, though, it did not leave my roots looking greasy or stiff, which is a problem when I try to use most volumizing products. I intend to give the rest of my bottle to my sister-in-law, who has very fine hair and could benefit from a product like this that is matched to her hair type.
All in all, this product line is just not for me. It is formulated for fine hair that is weighed down by typical conditioners, and my hair is thick and heavy. If you have fine hair, I suggest you try this at least once, and I hope it works for you!!

      I bought this product for my mother who has aging, short gray hair. She LOVES it! She uses it to spritz up her short fine hair and it adds volume & control without stickiness. I doubt she'll ever go without it now.

        The volume spray added some manageable volume to my hair and I actually like it quite a bit! I like that you can use it on damp or dry hair! Love the way it smells too!! I got this as a sample to try thourgh BzzAgent.

          I am a huge fan of leave in conditioners, as I have curly hair which needs some extra support. This product definitely did not disappoint! I loved the foam texture of this leave in! It made my curls soft and defined. It smells awesome, too! I was able to try this product free.

            Comments about Nexxus Hydra-Light Weightless Moisture Root Lift Mist, 10.1 fl oz:

            I was a bit hesitant about the root lifting mist. My hair is curly, it is typical for me to use a ton of mousse to tame the curls. This is a light weight root lifting mist, so I really didn't expect it to be able to tame the frizz. I also was curious about how it would spread into my hair. The root lifting mist was easy to apply and it easily spread into my curls. Upon drying the curls were loose and soft. Frizz was drastically reduced. There was an ever so slight fragrance, however it definitely was not overpowering.
            I have had a harder time finding this product locally. Online it is readily available though. The cost is a bit more than I would like to pay, however there are regular sales in stores.
            My hair is long and curly. I routinely get it trimmed, however have been growing it out for over a decade, maintaining the length just over the mid point in my back. The curls frequently lead to frizziness and total chaos on my head. Due to all the products I use, dryness is another frequent issue. I am also looking for moisturizers that will not weigh down my hair, thus reducing the curl. I always at least start the day with my hair down. Typically immediately exiting the shower, I run a comb through it and then just let it start to curl. After a few minutes of it drying, but remaining somewhat damp, I start to apply whatever products I am going to apply for the day.
            I used the shampoo, conditioner, leave in conditioner, and root lifting mist all in combination with one another daily for a solid week. Each day there was continued improvement in the look of my hair. There was less frizziness and fly aways. My hair was soft to the touch and full of curls.

            When I first used this spray, I was a little turned off by the inital smell, but it does fade quite a bit throught the day. It's not an overpowering scent all day long. I felt like this product smelled as though it has alcohol in it and I don't think that's great for long term use as alcohol can dry your hair. If it doesn't have alcohol, it still smells...not great. The result was nice, but I dont' think I'll be using this one very often.

            I received this product through BzzAgent to test and review. I have been using it along with the Nexxus Hydra-Light Weightless Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner, both of which I really like. Although I like this product because I think it did give my very straight, flat hair some added lift, it has left my hair feeling a little sticky after I first put it on. Also, my hair felt a little greasy by the end of the day, whereas it never usually does.

            Overall, however, I like this product since it works well to give my hair lift and shine. It's probably not a must-have item for me, but I do think it works fairly well and would recommend it to a friend.

                I have been using this product for almost 2 weeks and I LOVE it! My hair is full of body with little work when normally I spend lots of time time trying to make it look that way. On days before using Nexxus Hydra-Light, my hair would look fuzzy and dry. Now it feels so so soft and healthy. I can't keep from running my fingers through my hair, and the product smells awesome. I recommend this product to everyone, Especially people with dry lifeless hair. Just try it and you will see!

                  I shampoo my hair every other day but use the product on a daily basis as it is one the best out on the market that I have tried. It lifts and tames the dryness of my unruly hair. The price is decent and I can find it at my local drugstore instead of having to go to an expensive beauty salon.
