Most Helpful Positive Review Fabulous!
I saw this product in Ulta several times. I was, of course, skeptical about how such a small bottle of powder was going to last me more than a couple of uses and how said powder was going to work. Well, I finally broke down and bought it as I was tired of having to tease my hair at the crown. I have a flat spot at the crown of my head and it drives me batty because I feel like everybody can see it (even though I know they can't).
I actually decided to use this product the night of my birthday bash! (talk about putting your faith in a product) I was nervous that it was going to leave my hair lifeless with in an hour, however, it worked like a charm!! My hair stayed nice and full all night long, through dinner and dancing! I was very pleased with this product.
The only con I have about this product is you must be willing to wash your hair after you use this product. You cannot go a couple of days without washing your hair with this product in it. It makes your hair feel absolutely disgusting. I went off shore fishing the day after using this product. I wasn't about to shower just to get on a boat with smelly fish.... MY MISTAKE! My hair felt down right nasty. I wanted to jump off the boat and wet my hair with ocean water to try to rinse it out.
Other than the gross feeling it gives your hair, I would be willing to purchase this product again.
Most Helpful Critical Review Big "sticky" hair
I thought it would be great because I fly on business trips a lot and since it's powder it doesn't have to go in the Baggie like other liquid or aerosol hair products. Plus I've always loved Big Sexy Root Pump. So I tried this product. It was awful. It felt like my hair had glue it. I could barely get a brush through it. Don't waste your money!

BIG. SEXY. HAIR. For real. I think it may also soak up some oil because I can go longer between washes with it.
Works great to add volume
CC from Chicago
I have really fine hair and this definitely adds a great boost and last all day. It is a bit in the pricey side for how much product you get tho.
KLSF from Pittsburgh, PA
I have very fine, straight hair. This adds just the little boost to your roots to add some lift. I love it! It does leave a little bit of a sticky residue but I am still able to not wash my hair every day using it.
Does give volume
Jen from Northwest GA
Over all it works and does give some volume. I'm not sure I'll buy it again though. Like I said it leaves a weird film on my hair and I don't like the way it feels. Could be that "texture" they are referring to. But just kinda feels yuck to me.
Best stuff, EVER!!
Meredith from Texas
I have fine/thin hair and this stuff works great, to give me some extra volume. It's lightweight and works perfectly.
Joy from Concord, CA
Compares to a similar Aveda product, which is more expensive and less stable. Works well to add body to my fine hair.
Flat hair to Vavoom!
Flat Hair, Never! from Orlando, FL
I have been using this product for 7 years!!! Absolutely love it. Addicted, I literally use it everyday. The salt shaker bottle is the best bottle. The squirt is terrible FYI. This product gives you life, volume, texture! I love it.
taylorkk from Paducah, KY
I love using this before/after I curl my hair. I also use it if I'm out of dry shampoo, it absorbs the oil in your hair.
Va va volume
Abeautyjunkie from Virginia
After styling, I'll add this to the roots of my hair at my crown and it really pumps up the volume. It does leave a cooling sensation upon first contact (just FYI), but this goes away quickly. I try to add *just* enough to give my usually stick straight hair texture and volume without adding too much product, or it can leave hair feeling a little sticky. Back combing in addition to using this product works well too, if you are committed to getting that va va boom factor.
A must have for me!
Lasting texture from Metro Detroit
I bought this based on reviews and did online pickup for it. When I got home, I was confused because it was so small. I thought this must be wrong and they gave me the travel size my accident. But after some research, it was the right size and it goes a long way. I love this stuff!!! I just bought it again. It provides a great texture to my fine hair all day. Will keep buying < 3
Almost useless, no hold, no texture, expensive
SqueeGee from Seattle, WA
I usually use Slick Gorilla hair powder, which has a strong workable hold for my medium fine - very short hair. I would not recommend using hair powder past jaw-length hair as it would make it sticky and easy to knot.
This stuff has next to no hold, is expensive, and overall useless. I used a palm full of powder and still achieved nearly no hold. I am surprised, as I have used many of BSH products just fine. This was just a flop for me.
I would definitely buy this item again
Susie from Michigan
You just need to sprinkle a little where you want volume my hairdresser used it on my hair and it is awesome stays all day even when I wake up in the morning it still looks great only thing I use now
Love This Product!
Mary from Michigan
Gives great texture and body without greasy buildup. I prefer to put some on my fingertips and work into hair by sections. I have fine, limp hair. This makes such a difference! I love it! The only disadvantage, if you want to call it that, is it takes two shampoos to completely remove it from your hair. Not a problem for me. That tells me it lasts until you take it out.
Loren from CT
I have thin hair so I've been looking for a way to get some volume. This doesn't give me any volume no matter how I use it (on top, under neath) and it makes your hair feel gross. You can't even run your fingers through your hair. Unfortunately have to return this and on the look out for another volume product
Christy from Georgia
My stylist used this on me and I loved how thick my hair looked so I decided to buy it for me and my mom. However it is hard to use. Also another downfall is the texture. You can hardly run your fingers through your hair
3rd purchase of product......love it.
Fun grandms from Kansas City, MO
Love product......Try a tint for true brunettes
Great concept, sadly returned!
Peezer from Los Al, CA.
I thought this was a great concept but the formula is sticky beyond belief! Leaves hair with a sticky residue and carries onto the inside of fingers. I'm definitely not a fan of that. Returned.
It does what it says it
Megan from IL
I have very fine thin hair. This stuff makes it look like I have full, thick, voluminous hair. I love it!
LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS PRODUCT
80 Purple Angles from Mt. Vernon, IN
Love this product, the texture it gives my hair makes it so easy to shake on the product then style and go so quickly I rarely spend more than 10 minutes on my hair daily, 15 minutes on days I wash and style it. My son even uses it on his hair for texture purposes. A little goes along way you don't want to apply to much, hair becomes sticky just a little shake.
My go to
K8 from Michigan
I love this. It gives volume that will last and its really easy to use. It does make your roots feel dry but I prefer that to how gummy and hard root lifters can make your hair feel
One of my favorite products
Motolady from PA
This product adds lots of body and texture. I have fine hair and this gives my hair oomph. I make sure I always have extra on hand. This is the only product I use that isn't from my loyal brand.
Mimi from Texas
Been using this for years. Awesome product!
My Forever Go-To Powder!
Sallie from Sherman, IL
I have had short hair off and on for years. I found this gem several years ago and have religiously used this every time I decide to cut my hair off. It adds great volume to my hair. A little does go a long way with this. When I use this, I don't put any other product (like hairspray) in my hair. This maintains my style all day long. I will always purchase this product!
manhater from colorado
this didn't really add any volume to my hair at all. it also caused my scalp to break out.
I would buy this product again
Nice Product from Fargo ND
I put some on and rub it in. You don't need much.
