SAMPLEPaul Mitchell Extra-Body Daily Boost & Extra-Body Sculpting Foam Review

If you’ve ever read any of my prior reviews on My Beauty Bunny, you’re probably well-acquainted with the fact that I am pretty low-maintenance when it comes to a beauty routine…and I have naturally fine, straight, and non-mega-volume hair. I graciously welcome assistance in nearly any form, but for me to use said assistance regularly, it must be practical, needs to be easy-to-use, and has to work as described without me needing to read a 49-page instruction manual and/or having to wake up an hour earlier each morning.

I recently tried the Paul Mitchell StyleWand—which was superb and delivered noticeable results—and thus was stoked to sample Paul Mitchell’s Extra-Body Daily Boost & Extra-Body Sculpting Foam. As I alluded to in the StyleWand review, I’m not a huge fan of any sprays, foams, or spritzes that leave my hair crunchy or greasy; however, given the excellent results of the StyleWand coupled with Paul Mitchell’s roughly 36 years of experience in the cosmetology industry…I had confidence these products were likely ones I would also enjoy. And I was right!

Paul Mitchell Extra Body It's My Party Set

I was able to test the Extra-Body Daily Boost & Extra-Body Sculpting Foam via an It’s My Party / Big Night Out combo pack that came with a free geometric hairpin (which easily doubles as a T-shirt tie in a pinch for that late ‘80s/early ‘90s NKOTB vintage shirt you wear for your company’s Band T-Shirt Friday). The Daily Boost is a “root lifter” spray while the Sculpting Foam is a mousse AKA “thickening foam.” I tried both together—on a Saturday evening, before going out—and then tried them separately on Sunday afternoon—one on the left side of my head and one on the right—to more clearly identify the specific benefits of each. I also generously applied both to my damp hair, post-shower, and then blow-dried for immediate results.

When using the two together, I definitely noticed that my hair had more texture and lift. My husband noticed the volume for sure, and I found that when I would stick my fingers in my hair and fluff upwards for a bit of extra oomph that the hair would stay fluffed and would not immediately fall. As a word of caution I would be mindful of how much of the Sculpting Foam is used depending on how fine or thick your hair is—if yours is the former, like mine, adding too much can make your hair slightly sticky or tacky to the touch. We went out on Saturday night to a barcade (bar arcade combo!) for, ahem, several hours; however, I found that in the midst of hours of Tales of the Crypt pinball and Galaga I could easily refluff and liven up my hair…so then it looked as if I’d just arrived an hour prior and had not been playing games since—well, at any rate…

When I tried each separately on Sunday, I was able to see the benefits of each individual product as well as to see how they truly complement each other and shine brightest when used in tandem. At least with my fine, long hair, the Daily Boost root lifter was the true bringer of the volume—adding a little bit of texture, and the powerhouse behind the actual (as-advertised) boost—while the Sculpting Foam was the primary source of the texture throughout the full strands. In the past I’ve used sprays on their own just to boost my roots but, after trying this duo, something clicked as to how using multiple complementary products might more ideally achieve the better overall effect. Additionally, while I left my hair down in my trial runs, the texture and lift offered would certainly provide an excellent base for a swooping updo—which I’ll try next Saturday night!

Her hair was always done up right, whether it was crimped all over or just her bangs froofed with a curling iron and gobs of hair spray. Over the years Morgan has grown more concerned with and interested in knowing from where her consumer products come, whether these things are food or beauty-related, and she loves discovering new cruelty-free products (particularly those with fun packaging). She also loves bright colors, music, and dogs, and is employed in post-production.
