    I was happy to find something comparable to Aveda's product that was less expensive. This would be it!

    I have really long hair, naturally curly so volume usually isn't an issue but I like to help it out with product. I like this product but I feel like the "not your mother's" brand of powder doors just as good for a fraction of the price

    Nice texturizer

      Best Uses

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

        I have thin, babyfine wavy blonde hair. I'm always looking for something to make my hair look fuller and have texture. This uber-lightweight powder did not darken my hair as many volumizing products do. It provided decent texture, but no volume--in fact, it seemed to eliminate any volume I'd managed to achieve with the blow dryer. Still, I like the texture it gave my hair. However, I have somewhat oily hair (looks fine all day and night, but by morning looks oily), and by the end of the day this product made my hair look oily and start to separate. Not good. My hair is probably weird, so someone with somewhat thicker hair may not experience this.

        Applying it was pretty straightforward. I had read reviews, so I knew not to dump it on and keep in mind "less is more."

                          Similar to a dry shampoo, this product can be used to add weightless volume and texture to the hair; however, it does not provide the oil absorbing benefits that a dry shampoo does.

                      • Q:

                        It seems most of these reviews are for long hair. Does this work on short thinning hair. I'm 65 yes old and my hair is so thin on top and sides you can plainly see scalp. I use "change up" and "Blow it up". Always looking for something to make it look thicker.

                          Powder Play instantly adds volume and texture to hair of all lengths! It is weightless and colorless, so it works well with any hair type and hair color.

                          When using with Quick Change and Blow It Up, apply both Quick Change and Blow It Up to damp hair, allow hair to dry, then apply Powder Play for best results.

                        Can you use this product in conjuction with their spray clay? And if indeed, howso? Also, would this be more beneficial with the spray clay or spray wax? Thank you!

                          You can absolutely use Powder Play Volumizing & Texturizing Powder in conjunction with Spray Clay. If you want extra volume, texture and medium hold, use Powder Play at the roots and use Spray Clay from the mid-shaft to the ends for a lightweight textured finish. Spray Clay will give you more of a matte, lightweight textured finish, while Spray Wax will give you a more of a glossy, textured finish. Both products can work in conjunction with Powder Play.

                          This product should be applied only to dry hair. You can apply the other product that you use while your hair is damp, allow your hair to dry, then apply Powder Play to add volume and texture.
