I have long (past bra-strap length) hair that is medium thick but very flat. I love using this powder even though it is recommended for shorter hair - it can definitely work for long hair too!
It leaves my hair really textured, defines the layers and adds a lot of volume. With longer hair it can cause some tangling but nothing major nor damaging - and a tangle or two is definitely worth the volume and "undone" sexiness this adds. In my opinion, the results are comparable if not better than B&B's Texture hair (un)dressing creme which promises extra lift, and a tousled, shine-free finish" - and that's exactly what the Powderful gives you, only it's in powder form instead of a cream, creates even more volume, and is 1/4 of the price. I have and use both and don't see much difference in the final result.
Highly recommend for anyone looking for a volumizing/texturizing product.
This stuff is great for short hair. If you have flat, lank hair that lacks volume, this powder "dirties it up" a bit so that the strands don't lie flat against each other, if that makes sense. It will make your hair kind of sticky in a comb-won't-want-to-glide-through-it way, so I wouldn't recommend it for longer hair. But if you have short layers and you want a messy, sort-of-sticking-up look, then this is the stuff. The only drawback is that if you have dark hair, sometimes the powder does show up a bit - it's not bad enough to look like dandruff, but be forewarned, you might see a few little white specks. I usually tap it into my hands and clap or rub them together before running them through my hair, rather than shake it directly onto my head.
I just bought this product on a whim, like, an hour ago, while I was searching for a new dry shampoo. I know it isn't marketed as a dry shampoo, but it's a volumizing powder, which is pretty much the same thing. I am surprisingly impressed with this product! First of all, it's less than five dollars, and I found it at Walmart, so it is accessible. Second of all, the results are seriously great. I have a medium-length bob haircut and it falls flat and looks greasy by the third day after washing. I applied Powder'ful and, within ten minutes, my hair looked almost as good as the first day. It does add texture and a little bit of hold, which I like, but it's not for everyone. It's almost like a combined hair spray and dry shampoo. Lastly, I used quite a bit of product (probably more than I should have, but it doesn't specify how much to use), and it absolutely did NOT leave residue or a white cast on my dark brown hair. I highly recommend this product, especially if you aren't a fan of aerosol dry shampoos or hair sprays. This product gives you the benefits of both without butane or white hair.
This is my favourite volumizing product. My hair is bleached blonde so I can't backcomb it anymore and this is a great alternative! It feels a bit sticky when you rub it into your hands but it leaves you with fantastic volume at the roots. It's very inexpensive also. I highly recommend to anyone wanting volume in their hair without spending a fortune or damaging your hair.
I got this product because I was getting breakage due to back combing and thought this powder would save my hair however after applying this to my root it felt as if I put glue in my hair it felt very knotty and I couldn't comb it out I had to wash my hair straight after. Please save your money and don't buy this
I have limp and flat hair in general. My hairdresser showed me this little cutie - and I was more than impressed! It works, really, and it pumps up the volume! All you have to do is work it into your roots, fluff up your hair and bang, here the volume comes. The thing you need to be aware is that unless you use a small amount of it this may leave your hair with a sticky-residue feeling…For around $5, you can’t go wrong.
This hair powder is disgusting. In all honesty, it is easier to use a less gritty dry shampoo for lift to your roots and for oil absorbtion. You cant even brush you hair with this stuff in it! Will defo not be buying this again!
I normally have pretty good lift to my hair but I wanted a little more. After using this I had someone ask if I did something different to my hair. She said it looked great and had so much body on top. Easy to use,easy to reactivate after a few hours. Feels a bit weird on your fingers but not bad. Will definitely repurchase when I run out.
My hair is thin and limp on top and it's a struggle to get volume. This stuff works for me. It took a few tries to get the application method down. What ended up working best was parting my hair in a few key areas and lightly VERY lightly sprinkling the product in at the roots then working it in with my finger tips. Holding the bottle at an angle and tapping it with my index finger instead of shaking it like a salt shaker work. Also, I keep my hand moving instead of stopping while I tap. The packaging makes even application a breeze. Yes it is sticky at first and yes if you over use it it will become a matted mess. It really only takes a small amount. One tip is after working it a little flip your head upside down and really work it in. The first few times I'm pretty sure I used too much and I had to really shampoo hard to get it out. Now that I have the application down pretty good it washes out like any other product.
So long have I been envious of all the girls who are able to pull off the trendy bump in their hair. By bump I mean more like 1950/1960 good hair bumps not bad 2000's snookie hair bump. I just love the look of voluminous hair weather in a pony tail or just down Ive always been huge fan of this hair style.
I tried for years with every hairspray you can name and have probably permanently damaged my hair from the vigorous back combing with my "little wonder" brush and tiny teasing combs trying to ensure that it would last for more than five minutes...
but every time I get the same result, iIt didn't matter if it down and straight or in a ponytail or being forced up with bobby pins the backcombed knots would start to fall down in my hair because I have fine silky hair that has no texture to hold the knots in place. Even if I soak it in hair spray Ill just end up with gross embarrassing mattes halfway down my hair.
This is a miracle! it has made it possible to get the hott 50's look. I just shake a little in my roots when I'm teasing my hair I shake it on every individual layer that I'm backcombing. I used it today and got so many compliments at works and girls wanting suggestions on how I got so much volume!
The best part my HEB had them on clearance for $1.88!! After I bought the first one I went back to the store and got 4 more to stock up because I know I will be using his for a LONNNGGG time to come. I think I might send one to my mom and sister!
