Adds volume to fine lifeless hair
I have lots of fine hair but no volume. I used this and teased my hair slightly with dramatic results. I was truly amazed that what looks like tack powder has such a huge effect. It also washed out easily which I really liked

Great to provide quick volume
I recently purchased this. I found that it did work for me. I like the way this product feels as it doesnt make my hair feel greasy or sticky. But don't think that it lasted 24 hours! Overall though, it is a great product

This product does actually make my hair feel and look thicker. It's easy to use, can't be detected in my brown hair and has no fragrance. It's in a small handy & lightweight bottle. It certainly looks better in my hair than using hair mousse to volumise my hair, but it makes it feel a bit strange though!

As a woman blessed with thick tresses, I cannot complain. This volume powder does incredible stuff when applied as it says on the back. It doesn't feel greasy, takes only a few seconds and makes a visible difference to the overall shape of the hair.

Worked well for about 5 minutes...
I found that since I have rather greasy hair, (even after just washing) that when I did use it, it stayed up for about 5 minutes then would slowly collapse. I also didnt like the powdery sticky feeling in my hands after each use and I don't think it is worth the money, it was worth a try though :)

Quick volume for hot hair :)
I was intrigued by this product when it first came out, as anything with Heidi Klum in the ad campaign is always going to be eye catching and amazing! However I got busy and forgot about it, so I never ended up buying the product.
My flatmate was helping me do my hair for a night out last week, turns out she had bought the product and popped some in my hair as a finishing touch. It's amazing and I will definitely be going out to by this product for myself.
You only need a small amount at the roots of your hair, then you just work the product in light with your fingers to disguise the powder and to help it lift the roots up, instantly creating more volume.
Powder is a great alternative to a traditional volume mousse as it's not messy and doesn't leave your hair feeling weighed down, greasy or like it has too much product in it.
The volume held all night and I was super happy with my hair :)

I was pretty skeptical about this product. I'm not sure whether I'm doing it wrong, but it doesn't seem to make that much of a difference. I did find however, that for me it seems to work better on damp hair. However, it still didn't hold all day. I don't really like the waxy feeling it gives my hair. Also, if I don't wash my hair, the next day it feels really gross and greasy and waxy. Having said that I still grab this product when my hair looks a little flat. A little is better than nothing. However, I'm not sure I'll repurchase

I have fairly flat and very fine hair, and this product was much more effective than I expected! I was pleasantly surprised at the results. I didn't need to use a lot of powder in order to create a messy sexy tousled look, but I must admit it would require a little bit of hairspray to just 'hold' it in place if the style was needed for a few hours. One drawback was that my hair felt a little unclean after use, so you definitely feel like a shower at the end of the day. (However this is not a big deal as all styling products such as hairspray and mousse should normally be washed out at the end of the day.) I like the fact that the powder has no fragrance, and it becomes invisible in your hair.

Use on dry hair only!!

Great! But I need more!
My hair is dead-straight and flat against my skull. It doesn't move very much, and after a shower and once it is air-dried it flops heavily around my face. Then I came across this little beauty which gave me hope!
I like the new use of powder, I never thought that it could make my tresses come alive. I just place a bit on my hand and rub my palms together, then flip my hair over and rub it in to my scalp (must use on dry hair). Straight away my roots instantly have styling hold, where I have control of tossing it around to create a natural wind-swept look.
I don't need to wash my hands after because the powder just seems to disappear and there are no overpowering smells. I need more than just a 50c sized piece in my hand, I use 3 times as much for my hair because it is rather long.
My hair feels a bit dry, and slightly waxy when the product is in...so I wouldn't recommend running a brush through it. Otherwise it is my newest fav hair styling product.
