I got the Powder Play, but I just couldn't get the hang of it. I sprayed too much, too little, made a mess. So I decided to change it for this version of the thing. MUCH better. For me it does work with the same principle as the powder, but this is so much easier to handle. My advice is not to use a big glob right away. Start with very little until you know the amount you need. Don't get it wrong. It DOES give you grit, hold and texture. But somehow it works much better than the powder and it does not leave your hair dull and matte, or feel like you rubbed dry cement in it. I finish with a quick spray of OGX Beeswax Texture Hair Spray Wax and I have nice, piecey, shiny hair. Just remember. Start with very little till you know how much you need (that goes for the spray, too).
Product cannot be removed from tube for use. (see photo) There is a hard plastic insert in top of tube at the opening which prevents product from coming out. The plastic cannot be pulled out, and you cannot "twist" the cap off to get to the product. Tried to use a drill to open top, or remove plastic, but it is a very thick piece of plastic which must be lodged deeply in the top of the cap/tube.
I will definitely be returning this to the store for a refund. Very disappointed since the Ulta store I was at is 50 miles from where I live.

I recently cut my hair short and wanted a product that added volume and texture. This product left my hair feeling like a handful of straw, and i couldn't run my fingers through my hair without it getting tangled and knotted. Terrible product.

My hair dresser uses Powder Play on my super fine hair. But I always feel like my hair is kind of greasy later. Then one day she switched it up and used the cream to Powder Play and I was sold!! It makes my thin hair appear thicker and gives it volume!! And the best part, it never feels greasy!! I use it every day now!

Gives my hair more fullness and body

Trying to get in the habit of writing reviews for things I like so they sell more and stop getting discontinued! This product is excellent, does exactly what it says - even helps my VERY fine, thin hair look normal. It also helps hold a curl with its slightly gritty texture.
DO be aware of this grittiness; I don't see it as a bad thing, but some do. Hair is still very touchable and soft even with it.

I had used the powder but this is much better. The fullness lasts all day, not sticky

Shelley from MI
Doesnt do much except for make the ends fuzzy/frizzy. Super disappointed. Not sure how it's considered powder play creme. Nothing like powder play.

Gives my hair the boost I want. Easier than powder.

It was not what I was looking for. Asked a molding paste; this made my hair wet causing style to "flip" up.

Start with small amount, a little goes a long way.

I put this on after blow drying my hair, placing it at the roots and beyond.

Works great to give my short hair lift. Damp hands rejuvenated the lift

Absolutely love this volume & texture creme. Unlike the powder you don't waste a lot. Works just as advertised.

Adds body and definition to my cut. Maintains style, even at the beach.

It made my hair fuller. I have been struggling with thinning hair. This helps address it.

I seldom write reviews and am not usually willing to try new products due to bad experience after bad experience with heavy, ineffective products, but this product is more than worth a positive review. It provides great lift to fine hair, gives it fullness and body, and is lightweight. I love that this turns from a creme to a powder. A little goes a long way, too. It's the best!
Tara from Michigan
Easier to apply evenly! Volume I needed, where I needed
DoubleU from Lex KY
This gel works too!
Seems like this brand is going to be my go to product. Wish the price was not so high :(

I have tried dry texture sprays, texture powders, liquid to powder texturizers, dry shampoos, dry shampoo pastes. Salon and drug store brands, you name it... I am always on the search for something that gives my bleached baby fine, but thick hair hold and volume without weight it down or too frizzy. Most texturizers tend to add too much gritty feeling to the hair. This one adds grip but without the gritty feeling. You can run your fingers and a comb through it without feeling like you are ripping out your hair. Please never stop making this product or change the formula. Tons of volume. I like to use it in conjunction with a thickening matte cream by cremo. Was able to get rid of 3 or 4 hair products to do what these two do.

I love how quickly it gives my asymmetric pixie cut instant volume. It does, however, end up feeling like I HAVE to wash my hair the next day, which I don't love doing because it dries my hair out. This is probably going to be something I use for special occasions and dress up days.

Phenomenal product! Takes a little getting used to, but once you figure it out for your own hair type? It's on! I've found that you can refresh your body and movement by layering more throughout the day, or the next day. If you have ever bought Powder Play or Powder Play Light? This is different, in that it does not have that sticky, wet feel. It's very clean, natural and builds right into your hair. Totally different product altogether (which makes me wonder why they relate it to the original?) I have FINALLY found the absolute miracle product I've been searching for, many years now! I can't recommend it enough! Worth. The. Money!
