I recently ordered the VALOOM Rootie, and it is arriving today. 😊
I know several ladies here have and love it. I understand how to use it for the side and back, but any suggestions on how to give volume on top? I have fine, thin hair that just barely brushes the top of my shoulders.

I love my Rootie! The thinnest part of my hair is on the top, crown area. I use the Rootie there but only using the Rootie briefly with each section so it doesn't crimp too much and make it frizzy. You just have to play around with it until you get your hair looking the way you want it. That might take a few go-rounds but once you get to know where your Rootie works best then you'll become a pro at using it in no time at all and you'll get faster at it the more you practice. The first few tries looked strange, I won't lie. But then I realized that I was using it in the wrong spots. Stay away from the hair closest to your face. Start at about an inch or so from the hair line. The top part is where you'll need to experiment to see where you can crimp or not. Good luck! @Swedishmiss

MrKongsMom (?) on you tube has a wonderful and complete tutorial on using this tool. Check this one out. It seems the important issue is placing it under the top layer of hair, as close to the scalp as possible and she only goes a few “clamps” down the hair section. She also explains the importance of a heat protectant, using a low temp heat setting and making sure hair is dry first.
Hope this helps.

I love the Rootie! I think it's one of those tools you have to play with to see what works best for you. I find I need just one "crimp" at the roots and then move on vs what they show (doing multiple crimps down the length of the hair).
Love this tool for volume!!

My obsession with VOLOOM started a few years ago when HSN offered the full-size version, the Classic. I bought that one immediately and it was good but the thing is heavy and difficult for me to hold with my arthritis. So then one day I saw they came out with a newer smaller one called the Petite which has the same size nubs but less of them so it is lighter and smaller...easier to manipulate...and yes, I bought that one, too.
Then along comes the Rootie. The difference between the Rootie and the Petite is the nubs on the Rootie are much smaller and the crimping plate is smaller. The Rootie is the lightest and smallest of all of them...my fave.
