I am not a huge product person.  I use Bare Minerals make-up and Suave hairspray.  I get interested in trying new products, but then I don't feel like spending the money on something that I may not like and can't return.  However, there are always exceptions, and something about this product caught my eye.  This product review is for Big Sexy Hair, Powder Play (just under $15 at Ulta).  It's a voluminizing and texturizing powder.

I have flat, flat, flat and super straight long hair. I don't usually have time to blowdry it, and I was intrigued by this product because it claims that you can put it in your dry hair and get an instant lift. So here goes:

I have been trying to rock the side braid lately, but since my hair is so fine, there wasn't much to my braid (as you can see in the before pic).  I put some of the powder in my hair and look how full my braid was!  The stuff really does works for me!  I'm not doomed to flat hair!

(Please excuse the comfy outfit.)
Pros: volume, volume, volume!
Cons: A little tricky to work with at first.  It makes your hair, for lack of a better word, clingy.  Since my hair is so fine, it gets tangled really easily, so I had to be careful not to knot my hair up.

(Side comment: I'm not paid to endorse any products, labels, etc. I just like to share my personal experiences.  This product review could have turned into an epic fail, but it actually worked for my hair type.)

Great post! I wonder if this would work well on a pixie cut... :)
