Who can use it?
Volumizing powders are ideal for hair that doesn’t hold a style, flat and fine hair, greasy hair and if you have big hair that needs even bigger body, you can use it too.
How do I use it?
Powders are versatile in application depending on what style you’re going for / personal preference. They can seem pretty intimidating and scary to apply but we have a few handy tips to get you puffing like a pro.
Always begin with dry hair, you will want to work in sections where you plan to apply the product; on your roots around your crown - for a lift, or onto the lengths – for added texture.
Gently shake the bottle and either tap lightly or spray the powder on to hair - a little goes a long way too, so don’t go overboard otherwise you might end up with hair the texture of candy floss - You can also put the powder in your hands, rub them together and apply to hair that way. tip start with less and work more product in until you’re happy with the result.
Using your fingers, massage or scrunch where you have applied to activate the product, and for all over expansiveness you can brush the powder through.
Throughout the day, re-activate the product using your fingers to scrunch or tousle the hair – it’s the gift that keeps on giving really!
