Our hunt for full, voluminous hair is a quest we'll likely be on for ages. But, thanks to some stellar styling products, we can achieve our dream mile-high locks a tiny bit easier. Most surprisingly, the secret to a bountiful blowout isn't a spray or gel, but rather it's an unlikely suspect: hair powder. Get the scoop on hair powders and how to use them, below!
What is it: Ingredient-rich powders that are applied into the hair to add volume and boost strands
What it does: Adds texture, volume, fights frizz and oil, and extends the life of the style
How to use it: Each particular powder is different and it's best to apply according to your powder's label, but the principle is the same for each. Shake the powder and apply into strands at the roots. Massage the product into the strands and watch volume appear.
Although there are a number of Bumble and bumble loyalists, this powder has earned many fans in its own right. Formulated to both extend the length of your style and give your mane a bit of a boost, this powder is lightweight and can actually take the place of your trusty dry shampoo. Influensters agree:
Big Sexy Hair Powder Play ($8.99)
Ideal for anyone with fine or flat hair, this powder is odorless and colorless to instantly add lift and texture. Va-va-voom is right.
This option from Not Your Mother's goes directly onto dry hair to spice up and add mega-volume to strands. Influensters say this is a miracle worker for reviving flatten roots:
This unique formula has the consistency of a powder but control of a balm. And, unlike other powders, you can use this product on wet or dry hair thanks to its zero-slip texture.
Another unique powder find actually starts out as a liquid. (Yep, you read that correctly.) Shake to transform Joico's liquid volume-meets-texturizer into an airy powder with enough grip to give you just the style you want.
