This is a fun little styling product for those of us who need a little help with volume. For reference, I have straight, flat, relatively thin asian hair. There are two ways to use this: 1) sprinkle it directly into your hair/roots, or 2), rub some of the product between the palms of your hands til the product goes clear, and then apply to your roots/hair. It is tacky so it will make your hair kind of stick to itself to create that volume. If you rub it in roughly, you will get ratty/messy looking hair (especially with method 1). You tend to apply less product using method 2 so I find it generally gives a less "crazy" result. It can feel dry and gritty, but that's how it works to give you volume. Its a good alternative to back combing. This is not HG for me, but it is definitely fun to work with and can come in handy. It does give instant volume, but it doesn't really stay. To refresh my style during the day I just have to use my fingers to fluff it up. Its really best for a more messy look. If you want a smooth but volumized look that lasts all day, I suggest using a volumizing product and blow drying the volume in instead. If that doesn't do the trick, add a little bit of this for extra oomph. This retails between 5 and 9$ so its pretty inexpensive if you look out for deals, and you only use a little at a time.

Oh yeah, this stuff works! Last week was the first time that I've ever heard of these styling powders (was I living under a rock?). I tried it on freshly washed and dried hair (no other styling products used), and it was like a miracle. I've never had volume like this, nevermind volume that actually lasts! I have loads of long, straight and very fine hair that is so slippery it doesn't hold curl. I can use a ton of volumizer, any brand, and my hair takes all of half an hour after styling to fall flat,and you'd never guess there's any product in it. I dusted some of this in at the roots, massaged it in, and wow! Volume that lasts till you wash it out. A slight drawback is that this stuff does make your hair feel a bit grungy where it's applied and if you play with your roots too much your hair can look snarled and tangled, so just keep the top layer of your hair smooth and you'll be fine. I also have to shampoo my hair twice, and very thoroughly, to get all this stuff out, but it's a small price to pay for finally finding a volumizing product that works. I'll be repurchasing this again and again.

Really works. If you know how to use it. Will buy again.Read reviews on here complaining that it made their hair sticky and tacky? If used properly, this is not the case and certainly wasn't for me. It's just like all of the other pro volumizing powders out there, minus the high price tag.Tip: Do NOT rub this product into your scalp or use on anything other than freshly clean hair. Instead, turn your head upside down, aim for where you want the volume and LIGHTLY sprinkle near root area, shake the hair around it to move it around (I sometimes take a blow dryer on cool to the area just to be sure) then flip back over. Boom. Done.

This product is absolutely amazing. It gives an incredible amount of volume for a fraction of the price of other powders. I have purchased several times and will continue to do so. It has an odd cooling sensation which is nice for summer and it can be a bit difficult to wash out but it is SO worth it!

I will start off by saying I have never used a hair volumnizing powder before so this stuff was a 1st for me.So I was watching a youtube video and saw a review for this and was intrigued. Off I went to Walmart and got this for $2.98 and the next day tried it and have been using it for 2months now.Holy impressing!!!!!!!! This lil powder is amazing!! My hair is super naturally curly and after I straighten it tends to lose volume and stay flat (wich I like but I don't like it "dead" flat if that makes sense lol) wether I sprinkle this directly on my roots or apply it with my hands this stuff gives me the volume and texture control I want. My hair feels a tad sticky wherever I use this but thats to be expected.This doesn't leave my hair matted or full of residue and its easy to wash out.I will be using this HG status hair powder for a long time and for $2.98 at Walmart its a steal!!!!!

I got this as a free trial through BzzAgent. I was happy to try this because I tend to have flat, oily roots with zero lift. I was not expecting much being drugstore products do not really do much for my hair. This took me by surprise! I tried it like the directions stated by pouring into my hands and then fluffing into my hair. It did give me some body, but not enough. So then I poured it into my scalp and doing it that way was great. My hair was left full of lift and volume. I like that this is instant so you can choose when to do it even last minute. There were a few downsides for me. This did get very sticky if I overdid it so you have to be careful when applying to do a little at a time until you get the right amount of volume. This would not work if my hair was even slightly oily which is a disappointment for me. Despite these two issues, I think this is a great product at a great price and will be buying when I run out of it.Update: I have tried using this again and I always end up disappointed with how sticky it makes my hair. I have found it stays sticky and only really goes away after I have slept on my hair. Otherwise it stays very sticky and feels icky running my fingers through my hair. For this reason I barely use this. I also do not like the scent of this. I think it is an ok product, but it is not something I reach for often.

Edit: I will no longer support this company as they test their products on animals. My feelings on the product itself haven't changed so if you aren't interested in cruelty free products please read on.I received this product as part of a bzzz agent campaign. I haven't tried any other Got2be products but I was curious about them because they're inexpensive and I always notice the cute packaging. I was very excited to try this because I am always looking for products to volumize my fine hair. This powder works very well. It gives my hair lasting volume, especially when I tease it. My only complaint is it turns your hair into a sticky mess if you use too much. I just pour a little on my roots and massage it in. I should note to that I am blonde so it doesn't leave any visible residue, but if you have darker hair it might. Overall a great product at an affordable price!

This is one of my HG hair products now. I'd never used a "hair powder" of any kind before this one, and it's cheap and readily available, so why not? Background info on my hair: I have pretty thick hair (strand-wise), but it's not very dense, it's about 3 inches past my shoulder, and it's also colored and highlighted with salt and pepper coming in. The texture can also be described as "puffy" at times (high humidity). Because my hair's not dense, it can look rather limp and flat all over. After using this powder, wow suddenly i have TONS of volume, and it lasts! Before, i'd use hair spray and a teasing comb for volume, now i don't even have to use either. Just sprinkle some of this in my hand or directly on roots, massage in and fluff up, and i'm good to go. Sure, it feels alittle stiff, but it's not as bad as when i used hair spray in my roots. The only downside (which can be pretty important to some) is that it definitely leaves a thick residue in your hair, that you can feel pretty much until the next time you wash it.

Very sticky, dry and unnatural feeling. I had to wash my hair right away after putting this in. I was unable to pull my fingers through my hair - it turned my hair into a dry mat. Even after washing my hair, some of the weird sticky feeling was still left. If you want natural, touchable hair, this is not it!
