Grip is key with braids and so is texture - this is my ultimate braid aid. I sprinkle this on all of my braids before gently pulling them apart for texture. It keeps them from unraveling and falling apart. I also use this for volume at the root when I do updos.
Wouldn't do a textured braid without this powder. It just makes things so much easier. How to: 1. Create a braid - french, dutch, cornrow, macramé, fishtail, rope, any kind of braid! 2. Sprinkle a small amount over the braid. 3. Gently tap the powder into the braid. 4. Lightly pull pieces of your braid to add texture. Tip: Use this when you want to add texture to your braid or updo but you're scared it will unravel.

This product works great for adding texture and volume to an updo. I have thin fairly straight hair that gets a little limp and lifeless on no-wash days so an easy way to add volume was appealing. I used it on a ponytail recently and it really helped volumize. It is super easy to apply, is not visible in the hair, and instantly starts adding volume. The volume lasted fairly well throughout the day. The one thing I didn’t like is that I hate the feeling of having product in my hair, and you can definitely feel this product when you touch the hair where it was applied. But I guess that comes with the territory. I definitely recommend watching Kristen Ess’s instagram/YouTube videos showing how to use her products. The one where she shows adding this powder to a ponytail is what sold me on giving it a try! Looks like magic honestly.
THIS IS GOLD. I have insanely fine and thin hair and nothing adds texture and volume like this. Kristin's other products are great but this lasts until the next wash and you only need a tiny bit. It absorbs so nicely and gives that perfect texture without feeling gross.
I love this! It worked great in my hair to create more volume. And I love that it's a lot cheaper than Aveda's version (and you get more product, too). What I didn't like was the scent. I knocked off a star for that. It smells like old lady perfume. I wish they would replace it with a fresh, clean scent.
This works really well for getting your bangs grippy enough to pin back in a cute twist or braid. I don’t use it everyday but it really comes in handy for making a quick hot mess of hair look cute and intentional
