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.
1. wash hair with a volume boosting shampoo, towel dry
2. spray on an amplifying spray at your roots all over
3. Blow dry, lift & brush hair from root during this & turn head upside down at end for an extra blast with hairdryer
4. Use BaByliss Root Boost, in close to head and under the very top layer (instructions in with product)
5. Straighten edges of hair and fringe if necessary with straighteners & spray on a little hairspray et voila - big hair!
I've had very long hair, short hair, layers, a bob, feathered etc etc - but if your hair is fine and flat there is absolutely nothing that will give it that volume - unless you plump for a perm, the shaved look, permanently tie it up or fix it rigid with hair spray (which doesn't move in a force 10 gale) mmm.........
This root booster is really brilliant. Crimp the roots only in layers, back, sides and top, leaving the outer layers untouched, and I find my style stays in ALL DAY!!! For a special 'do', I spend time doing many layers, but for a quick boost I just do one or two underneath layers. Doesn't take long. Also the wind hasn't managed to blow away the fullness yay!!
I find the cord length fine - helps to be positioned near a socket.
Don't think this would work on thick wavy hair (probably the weight of thick hair would make it flat, though you could try crimping smaller sections maybe?), and anyway why would you if your hair is thick and wavy? God please give ME thick wavy hair.......
Yes it probably would dry your hair out if used everyday, but use heat styling products to protect your hair, or just do your hair on special days.
My only problem? - I burnt my ear ha!!! Perhaps I'll next opt for a ear pinning op ...... :-)
Great gadget - absolutely a must for fine flat hair.
Thank you Babyliss xx
