Does this product suggest "hold"

Hi Randy, I have a question about the ingredients in this new product from Living Proof called Full Dry Volume Blast.  It is meant to add volume to dry hair, but I was hoping there are elements to it that provide hold like a hairspray.  Hairsprays tend to dry shiny and such and this product looks like it is matte.  Inquiring with customer service they pretty much regurgitate what is on the website and aren't much help.  I notice it has the classic VP?VA, and next the excellent humidity resistant hairspray ingredient, (learned from an old blog post of yours!) so how would this be any different than a hairspray?  For comparison I put the ingredients to one of their true hairsprays for comparison. Thanks a bunch.

  • This product contains film forming polymers so I'd expect it to hold like a hairspray.
