      This stuff is the BEST! I have super fine straight hair and until I discovered this, it was nearly impossible to get any lift at the crown without the look of a rat's nest. Now, with very little effort, I can achieve the look I desire without tons of back combing.

          Comments about Big Sexy Hair Powder Play Volumizing & Texturizing Powder:

          I have fine, soft hair and I have never been able to maintain volume at my roots. Even if I tease and use hairspray, my hair falls flat after a few hours. I also have trouble doing basic hairstyles (half up, braids) because my hair is just so soft and the style falls out. This product works so well for adding enough texture to my hair to allow styles to stay put! I was able to do a simple half up style with volume at my crown, held in place with bobby pins (sans hairspray), and it lasted a good 8 hours! It also helps add texture when I braid so it doesn't fall out. im really happy I found this product!

                    Comments about Big Sexy Hair Powder Play Volumizing & Texturizing Powder:

                    So was confused at first how it worked.

                    Fyi: powder feels cold on head (weird I know!) That's helpful, so you know where it landed.

                    Best way to use In My Opinion:
                    1. Part hair where you want volume.
                    2. Hold straight above and straight up.
                    3. Tilt slightly and tap lightly ( so little powder spills).
                    4. Rub into hair at root/scalp in little circles (creates moderate volume).

                          We love hot roller sets! For the best hot roller set we recommend to use:

                          Style Sexy Hair 450 Headset: A heat defense setting spray that protects hair up to 450ºF from hot tools. This spray is humidity resistant, adds shine, controls frizz and helps keep style looking and feeling natural.

                          To use: Spray on dry hair section by section, set with hot rollers or curling iron. Can also be used on damp hair for blow-dry styling.

                          THEN STYLE WITH:

                          Big Sexy Hair Powder Play: This powder instantly liquefies when applied allowing hair to absorb the product and provide full, voluminous hair that everyone wants. Ideal for instant volume on dry hair it is the fastest, easiest way to get big sexy hair in a few seconds! It is weightless, odorless and colorless on any hair color and is great for adding texture.

                          No, Big Sexy Hair Powder Play will not leave a white residue in your hair as Big Sexy Hair Powder Play is completely colorless and fragrance free. In fact, in addition to Powder Play, all of our dry shampoos are Talc Free, meaning they will not leave a white residue on the hair. To use apply at the root on dry hair for an instant lift. Sprinkle through hair for lightweight texture, separation and control, and make sure to massage in the product to make it disappear in the hair.

                        I just bought this when the Big Sexy products were on sale at my Ulta store. It feels wet during application on dry hair, and I notice little beads of liquid on the cap when using. Is this normal? I expected a totally dry product.

                          This is a GREAT question! Big Sexy Hair Powder Play is actually a liquefying powder. The reason being is so that you can get grip, texture, volume, AND hold all in one. So yes, it is very normal that you feel a cold/moisture sensation when using this product. In fact, it is necessary. In using an example, think of a small bead with a hard outer shell, and liquid on the inside. This product will go in dry, as soon as the microcapsules burst they become a liquid for a short amount of time, and then they will instantly dry again.

                          If you feel that this product might have too much moisture for you, we recommend you try to the Big Sexy Hair Volumizing Dry Shampoo for a dryer volumizing product.

                          If you feel the product may have additional moisture in it for any reason, please see your Ulta beauty gurus and they help to trouble shoot any challenges you may still be experiencing.

                        I've tried powder play volumizing just once. I do like the results. I am concerned as to how healthy is it to apply to hair and scalp daily? Can it be damaging to the scalp and hair?

                          All Sexy Hair products are water soluble meaning they will break down and wash out easily with water. Sexy Hair Big Sexy Hair Powder Play is safe to use daily. If you have any personal concerns, we recommend you do a patch test. Place a small amount of the product on the skin and wait 24 hours. If there is no reaction you should be safe to use the product.
