Schwarzkopf got2b POWDER'ful Volumizing Styling Powder, £3.00 (here)
Like most girls, I'm on a never-ending battle against flat hair. I recently discovered the got2b styling range from Schwarzkopf and their volumising mousse has earned itself a place in my daily routine. But I won't settle at that, and my battle continues. The perfect product is out there somewhere! When I saw this in Boots, I had to give it a go - for research purposes, obviously...
The texture of this was not what I was expecting. It dusts out like talcum powder, but as soon as it makes contact with anything, it turns to a wet, sticky texture. It took me a few attempts to learn how to use this properly. I found the best way was to lightly dust the powder straight onto my roots, using my fingertips to rub it in. The powder turns sticky once applied to the hair, then hardens as it dries. Once dried, the roots feel noticeably thicker. Even without any back-combing, this gives an amazing amount of volume at the roots.
This product is an absolute god-send when I'm putting my hair up. I don't like to wear my hair tight to my head, so I'd normally spend ages back-combing and hair spraying just to get my hair into a simple ponytail. With this powder, I just have to dust a little through my roots, puff up my hair with my fingers and put it straight up!
As you'd expect with a long-lasting product, it's not easy to get out. For me, this is the only downside of the product. It works wonders for volume, but brushing it out isn't an option. It's quite heavy too, and not the type of product you'd leave in for more than a day. This pretty much rules it out as an every day product for me because I wash my hair every second day.
So it's not made it into the everyday pile for me, but I'll be keeping this one aside for up-do's and day two's - an unintentional rhyme, but quite catchy actually!
Have you tried this powder? What did you think?
