This product does add some volume, but it has a weird stick texture that I really dislike. This product gives me as much volume as baby powder, but it is way more expensive.

This is a water based silica powder that is meant to be sprinkled into the roots and tousled to make fine hair feel fuller. My hair is very straight and this does give a little bit of a boost in terms of texturizing, but I find it does very little for lift and hold. If I don't use hairspray or pomade immediately after, my hair goes back to falling flat against my scalp within minutes …Read more

This stuff is Gold! A little goes a long way. Gives me volume at my hairline and crown without being too sticky. A must have in my hair styling regimen. Love this product. Have used it for at least 4 years now.

Here's the deal with this potion: I would DEFINITELY buy it again ...if I didn't have a job that required a lot of travel. Nothing, and I've tried so much, fluffed my hair as much as this stuff. Friends and family came up to touch my hair, and asked me if I had gotten extensions; it looked THAT much thicker and nicer. And it's really easy to use: just tap a little where you …Read more

I have short hair. LOVE this! I use it a few ways. Sometimes on wet hair before I blow dry, sometimes on dry hair and sometimes both. Leaves an amazing matte finish.
My favorite out of all of these powder style of products ( and I have tried them all)

I bought this product, when the hair powders got very popular.
Drugstore brands just never delivered what I was looking for, so I went straight ahead to Aveda and bought the pure abundance hair potion.
Again, it´s the kind of product you really should know, what you want from it. It´s simply too expensive to waste your money and find out, that it´s not working for you.
My hair is …

I was fortunate to get this in a swap. For reference, I have fine, color-treated hair cut in inverted bob (stacked in back, longer in front) and I insist on covering up my back part/teasing for volume. I cannot stand the tiny applicator tip on this bottle - I have a helluva time ever getting product out (and yes, I've read all the helpful hints).


That said, this …

It took me a long time to figure out ow to use this product. The way that has workd best for me is to open the bottle and gently tap around my hairline and part on dry hair then work through with my fingers.

It does appear that my hair is 'bulked up' which is what I'm looking for. But my hair feels horrible. It feels very matted and hard to get my fingers or even a …

DO NOT SHAKE!! DO NOT SHAKE!! AGAIN DO NOT SHAKE!!!! Ok ladies. This is an amazing product for adding volume in selected areas and for teasing as well. Especially when combined with Avedas air control or control force. The bottle is designed with the tiny opening for control so u don't end up with an unwanted glob. I graduated from the institute and was taught how to apply. Section the hair …Read more

I have fine hair and it's always cut in a textured way for volume. I use a lot of Aveda products, but none of the hair stuff...Until now.

Last summer I heard about Big Sexy Hairs texture powder. I tried it and liked it a lot at first...Then I noticed how greasy it made my hair. I have oily skin anyways and this made it like a oil slick after a few hours. I really liked the way …
