WHAT IT CLAIMS:
“Break the rules for how you style with got2b powder’ful volumising styling powder and take your volume to new heights! This revolutionary weightless formula texturises each hair strand to create maximum volume at the roots – in an instant!”
First I’ll start out with one of the main things that annoys me about this product, which is the overuse of numbers instead of letters – got2b and 4: instant volume – and their use of text speak – “break the rules for how u style” I hate it, stop it, there’s no need. I’m not thirteen, I didn’t really ever use text speak when it was “kewl” to do so, and these days I definitely don’t. I find it patronising and ah, STOP IT. Secondly, with Schwarzkopf, I always feel that their packaging is just a little shit. Maybe this all stems from the fact that they sponsor every programme on E4 after midnight, and back when I was in my third year of University I was often awake until 4am just watching repeats of Scrubs and Rules of Engagement pretending to work so I’ve seen those adverts like a million times. Also, I’m a firm believer that if you sell a product in the

I was sceptical of this product when I first got it, I couldn’t really work out how it would work. But I have to say I’m generally impressed. You either put the powder in your hands, rub your hands together and then work it into your hair, focusing on the roots – or you tip it straight into your roots and work it in that way. For me, it didn’t really work when I put it in my hands, it just made my hands feel funny, but it does work when I tip it straight onto my roots. It’s great being able to add volume without backcombing – my hair is in bad enough condition as it is.
It’s a great little product because I generally have quite a bit of volume in my hair anyway, but my roots have always let me down and this helps to counteract that. It’s really easy to get it work too, which is always a plus. Also, unlike when you use dry shampoo in your hair for texture and volume, there’s no grey crap left in your hair.
The one thing that lets this product down is the way it makes your hair feel, I can’t really describe it. It’s great, but I won’t be using it as an everyday product, because I only need to wash my hair every three days, but when I use this I need to wash it the day after. If you’ve bought this before and haven’t got along with it, my main suggestion would be to really work on your application method.
Do you have this product? What’s your opinion on it?
