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

    This product does what it says. I sprinkle a little bit in my crown, rub it in with my fingertips and/or flip my head upside down and it adds some volume. It doesn't add mega-volume but there is a visible difference. I don't use this for every day, mainly for going out at night but a little bit goes a long way.

                  I use this product daily and love it. I have curly, thick hair & straighten it (but use it either way curly or straight). It adds a great lift to my hair. I told a co-worker about it because she was complaining that her hair goes "flat" and now she is a believer....

                      I tried this to help boost my roots for a little body while putting my hair in a pony tail. This worked great! The only drawback is that it is difficult to brush through once applied. I work in a job that I need to pull my hair back for. This makes my hair flat. The powder worked great for a nicer style without having to wash and dry after getting home from work for an evening out.

                              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.

                              To use: Apply at the root on dry hair for an instant lift. Sprinkle through hair for lightweight texture, separation and control.

                              Have fun, and enjoy!

                              A:

                              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.

                              Yes, Sexy Hair Big Sexy Hair Powder play will be used on dry hair. You can use this before, during or after your styling. Apply at the root on dry hair and massage in for instant volume in your hair. Sprinkle through hair for lightweight texture, separation and control. For added hold, finish with your favorite Sexy Hair hairspray. We recommend Big Sexy Hair Spray and Play for a medium, workable finish. Enjoy!

                              As Sexy Hair Big Sexy Hair Powder Play Volumizing and Texturizing Powder is a highly concentrated product, we recommend cleansing twice to completely shampoo out product. If you feel as though you may still have product build up in your hair, a clarifying shampoo may be the best option for you. Once you have removed all excess product build up from your hair, you will likely find that Powder Play only needs one shampoo to remove product. A great way to use this product is to use a small amount first, and then layer more as needed.

                              We recommend you shampoo twice and that should do the trick as all Sexy Hair products are water soluble. Also, when using Sexy Hair Big Sexy Hair Powder Play make sure to use lightly, and add more as needed.
