Product Description

BaByliss 2123U Root Boost - Volume right from the root

Specially designed micro crimp plates add volume right from the root</
Specially designed micro crimp plates add 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 have fine wavy hair that goes flat if it's more than a few inches long. I tried blow drying it different ways, but this is a lot easier to use and the effect is much better.
    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.

    Good value for money, even though it doesn't give as much volume as the video shows.You should also only use it when your hair is clean. If your hair is starting to get dirty (ex.day 3 or 4) is doesn't work at all.

    I don't have very much hair and what I do have is very fine, in addtion I gave birth 9 months ago and my hair has been falling out in clumps for the last 2 months. Even before giving birth I've been looking high and low for a product to make my hair look fuller, been to numerous salons in London and nothing I've tried and received advice from would help.

    Dispite the great reviews, I still had doubts about this product, this is because I can't even curl my hair with my GHDs after numrous practices, but with this it is sooooooooooooooooo quick and easy to use and the results, well I have never seen my hair looking fuller. Love this product, think it's absolutely the best product for people who want to have fuller looking hair. Will never do without this now and will buy another one just as backup.

    I have never wrote a review before. I have very fine hair and have tried every lotion and potion to give me some root lift, i have never found a product which has worked. I bought the root boost last week and have found it really does give root lift which lasts even till the next day.

    I am very pleased with this product.

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    I have to admit, I'm stunned. I really honestly didn't think this would work. I have what my grandmother charmingly referred to as nine hairs and a nit and, since I started to straighten my hair it's as flat as a pancake. I had images in my head of walking along the road, the wind catching my hair and whipping it up in the air to reveal a layer of crimping!

    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.

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    These are fabulous! I have been trying to create big hair recently but it falls flat after an hour or two. I have tried back combing which made my hair tuggy and tangled. I use my straighteners at the roots but my hair has a big ridge on it. I have also been using the huge velcro rollers. They are good but only if you put them in in the completely correct position; they also take ages to set.
    These root-lifters do the best job by far, in a fraction of the time and the style lasts until you wash your hair again. You can go for it by doing lots of your scalp or just have some height at the top. They really work fantastically. They are easy to use and they heat up rapidly. My only concern is if they're safe for people with fine hair (my hair is thick and they have done no damage to it)
    These are exactly what I've been looking for and they work so well. Come on girls, we're worth it and we can all have hair like Cheryl now!

    I have fine hair and straighten it which can leave it a bit flat. I saw this product and thought it was a great idea but probably wouldn't work, or the crimps would really show. I decided to buy it though, and I'm delighted with it - the crimps are tiny so even when they show you can't really tell, but if you straighten your hair then just crimp through the roots lower down, the difference is amazing. There isn't a heat proof mat or bag in the box, but they are so thin they fit with my straighteners in their bag. Definitely recommend for people with fine hair.
