      I really like this product. A stylist first used it on me when I got a haircut and I liked but wasn't sure I could do it myself. I ended buying some at Ulta and it's very easy to use. It's pricey but I think it will last a long time because you use so little.

        Bought this after running out of another brand...iosis?...because it was a few $ cheaper and had decent reviews. This hasn't worked for my hair. My hair is fine and pin straight. I have a lot of it, and it is cut into a chin length bob. I like a texturizer to help with volume. No luck here. I've tried a little and a lot, all to no avail.

          Great for adding texture to fine, short hair. Does not add weight. The powder gets everywhere though.

              If you are looking for volume in your hair, this product fits the bill. It works great on wet hair before a blowout. It's also good on dry hair between shampoos. It's a small container but, you just need a a few sprinkles of it to do the trick.

              The product does what it claims but didn't like the fact I couldn't to small areas because of the all the holes in the cap. I will put tape over some of them.

                I have thin, curly hair and I love using this when I need a little oomph. It works great when you give it a quick sprinkle into your roots, or even when you have a side braid or a bun hair style that you want to volumize. I use this powder frequently and it's awesome.

                        Love this product. I have flat, straight, short hair. On muggy days in Louisiana, my hair gets even flatter. This product gives me all day lift in just the right places! Took me a couple of uses to figure out just how little you need to make big improvements.

                                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.

                              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.

                                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.
