BaByliss 2123U Root Boost - Volume right from the root
Give your hair a frizz-free boost with the Root Boost from BaByliss. This micro crimper makes it easy to add texture and lift to your hair for volume that last longer than back combing, while also saving your hair from becoming an unmanageable frizzy mess.
Inspired by salon hairdressers, the Root Boost takes advantage of the longer effects of crimping. However, it is entirely unlike other crimpers. Its specially designed micro crimping ceramic plates allow you to crimp close to the root of the hair where ordinary crimpers struggle to reach. The result is a more effective "boost" where it is needed most for a big hair look that lasts longer than ever.
Unlike ordinary crimpers which crimp a wide section of the hair, the ultra sleek Root Boost creates a narrow crimp that is less visible, meaning it is unlikely anyone will discover your secret to voluminous style.
Micro crimp design for volume that lasts longer
Designed with slim micro crimp plates that are only 15 mm wide, the Root Boost allows you to texturise and volumise your hair right from the root, giving your hair the boost it needs to stay full all day long.
Depending on your hair type, set the slim ceramic heating plates to one of the three temperatures -140 degrees C, 170 degrees C or 200 degrees C. If you have delicate, fine or coloured hair, use the lower heat setting. For thicker hair, use the higher heat setting.
Once the Root Boost has reached the desired temperature, it is simply a matter of sectioning your hair and adding texture to each layer for that full volume look you love.
After only a few seconds of crimping, each section of hair that has been treated by the Root Boost will have volume and lift which lasts longer than back combing and avoids giving your hair messy frizz.
Styling tips for the Root Boost
The Root Boost puts a professional styling technique right in your hands. Professional salon hairdressers use crimpers to give their celebrity clients the big hair look that we all love.
As celebrity hairdresser Beverly C says, “Crimping is a clever way to create texture and root lift - we have been using this technique in the salon for years. The ultra slim ceramic plates on the Root Boost are ideal- you can get right in to the roots for a really long lasting effect.”
For optimum hold and lift, use hairspray at the root of each hair section before using the Root Boost. For maximum body and fullness, start by sectioning a small layer of hair at the nape of the neck and begin crimping the hair close to the root, continue around the hair line of the section.
Continue releasing sections of hair down and adding texture at the roots until you have the level of volume you want. The top section of your hair should be styled as normal, so be careful not to crimp hair too close to the top section as crimp marks maybe visible on your final style.
Total control and convenience
The Root Boost lets you control your hair as if you were a salon hairdresser. Its 2 m salon style swivel cord moves as you move, so you can avoid getting caught up in a cord as you style and volumise your hair.
For even more convenience and control, the Root Boost features an on/off button. It also has an automatic shut off feature. This automatically switches the Root Boost off if it has been on for more than 72 minutes, continuously.

I was afraid of the difficulty of getting it work well, after all in the video only the easiest part of the head is done. Luckily this is not a problem. When using it, I don't really have to see what I'm doing. I only crimped a few times on the back of my head, didn't even do it twice as shown in the video, only once near the roots. On the sides it is easier to follow a pattern, but I don't think it is really important. I just have to make sure I don't crimp any parts that will be visible. All in all, I was surprised how much volume it created after using it so haphazardly. An unexpected benefit I found is that I don't have to wash my hair every day if I use this. Who would have thought?
Update 4 months after my original review:
I still use this every other day, right after washing and quickly drying my hair. It takes about 2 minutes. I tried to go without it a few times, but my hair looks so much worse, that I just MUST keep using it. I'm afraid I'm addicted... On the plus side, I haven't noticed any damaging on my hair, and I haven't had it cut since August. Without pumping my hair up, by now I'd look awful and would have had to have it cut. So it was a good investment, already paid for itself.
One day after washing my hair I noticed there seemed to be a small patch of har by my ear that had broken off to about 2 inches in length. I was confused and decided that I must have accidentally shaved it off as I am so clumsy and always brushing myhair back from my face. But the patch grew and then the same thing happened to the other side of my hair. There was onl one explanation. The length of thebhair was the xact same length as the Babyliss root boost after 2 rows of crimps. The hair that I had been using it on everyday for the poast 3-4 months had jst given u (hir grows about 0.5 inches a month, so the new hair I had started using it on when I purchased the product had dealt with it every timeit was used). Aded to this, over the next few months as I lost mroe andmore, the only hair that I lost, was that which I had use theroot boost on. My top layers were absolutely fine. 2 years on and my hair has grown back (though I still need to wait another year to have the originl length back), but the whole experience was horrible. I was worried I wouldlose all of my hair and I regret so much using the root boost to the extent that I did. Yes, the results are fantasic, inthe short term, but in the long term, if you use thi product everyday/every other day, I would say you rally need to try your best to wean yourself off it.Read more ›
I am very pleased with this product.
In actual fact, the crimps are so narrow and on such a small area of your head, right next to the roots that it's impossible to see them. I had a bit of a fight with it at first until I realised that it was better to straighten your hair, then crimp underneath instead of the other way round (crimping first means you spend half your time re-crimping the flat bits that you straightened after they were initially crimped! Frustrating and very time consuming...)
So when I looked in the mirror, half of me expected to see absolutely no difference whatsoever, and the other half of me expected a Dynasty-esque bouffant effect. In fact it was neither. This crimper gives just a nice little bit of volume without it looking ridiculous. It'll take a bit of practise to get to grips with it, as it still makes my morning routine a good bit longer but that will improve in time and is well worth the effort.

Love these got them as a Christmas present as I have thin hair so requested them work brilliantly and the crimp lasts till washed outPublished 20 days ago by kayleigh mcguigan
Unfortunately found these hard to use in my fine hair, difficult to get close to roots & because my hair is so fine the crimp showed through.
I read about how good mini crimpers are at giving volume to fine hair, and I must say they work a treat. Read morePublished 24 days ago by finn
