Beauty Test Drive: Sexy Hair’s Caring Is Sexy Powder Play
STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING. I’ve found the best hair product of the year for ladies with limp locks, like myself. I’ve always had pin straight, heavy hair, which means it goes flat within 30 minutes after a blow dry. Not anymore. Before I went out this weekend, a friend of mine told me I needed some “oomph” in my hair, before whipping out a canister of this texturizing & volumizing powder. Let me tell you, it is life changing, my friends. Oh, and the best part is that a portion of the proceeds will go to Look Good Feel Better, a nonprofit dedicated to improving the self-esteem of those undergoing cancer treatment. It’s a win-win.

Application: Either pour a small amount of powder in your hand and rub it into the roots of your hair, or just sprinkle directly onto your roots— just make sure your hair is dry. Massage the powder into the roots and “puff it up” with your fingers. If you feel so obliged, flip your hair and do the same for an extra lift. Your hair should have no traces of powder, as is liquifies and absorbs once applied. If you want some extra lightweight texture throughout your whole head, sprinkle some around your hair in various spots and run your hands through your hair to help it absorb.
Results: My hair went from flat and gross-looking to voluminous and full in about 10 seconds. It gives your hair that slightly messy, just-fucked-in-the-bathroom look that’s sexy as hell. Even my guy friends confirmed its results and were like “YES, that looks amazing.” This product comes highly recommended if you’re looking to “sex it up” a little bit in the hair department, but I would steer clear of using it before an important meeting or people might get suspicious, if you know what I mean.
