Description

Grip is key with braids and so is texture - this is my ultimate braid aide. I apply 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 style hair.

Wouldn't do a textured braid without this powder. It just makes things so much easier.

How to:

1. Create braids waves or buns.
2. Apply a light layer of powder to the hair.
3. Gently tap the powder in until it disappears.
4. Gently pull or massage the hair to increase volume.

Tip: A little goes a long way, so go easy, you can always add more.

Contains Zip-Up Technology (tm), our proprietary strengthening complex designed to "zip-up" split ends while targeting weak areas of the hair, smoothing the appearance of damaged cuticles and helping to protect hair from environmental stressors and color fade.

A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY! Don’t get carried away, you’ll have a hard time fixing it. It feels like a dry glue at first but once you work it in, it’s like cement! I wouldn’t say this has a lot of hold. After two hours I had to puff my hair back up again with my fingers. Great for a short period of time.

THIS PRODUCT SUCKS

Skylar - 3 months ago, Verified purchaser
THE WEIRDEST PACKAGING LITERALLY EVER. I have the big sexy hair powder play and it is 100x better than this one. The weird shooting design this bottle has sucks. I thought it was going to be an aerosol type & it is everything but that, it literally just shoots powder EVERYWHERE. I was wearing a black shirt while applying & I literally looked like I had dandruff all over me for the rest of the day. Not to mention the fact of whoever packaged this was not very smart, they taped the top shut & it sat in a hot delivery truck, literally gluing the tape to the top of the container & I had to rip it off. There is literally glue-like residue on the bottle making it incredibly annoying to ever use. RETURNING👎🏻

Did add volume, but makes your hair feel like a bird nest. It feels like a super strong hairspray that you can't brush out.

I literally never write reviews but this right here is straight gold! My hair is thick, coarse and wavy and has no volume since it is very heavy. I put this in my hair for the first time today and wow- I look like a super model haha it is definitely tacky but that’s the point. It gives my hair grit, texture and volume and I’m obsessed!

Exceptional - 4 months ago, Verified purchaser
No idea who designed this bottle. I’ve used other root powders that have shaker tops which are far easier to use. This is a pump. It just shoots right out in a puff of powder everywhere!It definitely adds texture, but I found it to be quite heavy and sticky. Though that could just be from the lack of control over the amount of powder. I probably would not buy it again.

Love this for my thin/fine hair! I got it to add general daily texture rather than for braids/updos, but it works great! Only slight downside is - while doesn’t feel stiff like hairspray, it does make my hair a bit tacky so it’s difficult to run my hand through my hair after I use it.

Smells great! It does give you great volume but it doesn’t necessarily last through a night out. Your hair will also feel very dirty the next day but I guess that’s how you get the temporary volume. I’d purchase again.

For anyone with thin hair, this is truly a remarkable product. As stated in my title a little goes a long way. One thing I really like is it leaves no white residue and seemingly “melts” into your hair. Even if too much is worked in I find that I can brush out any stiffness with a wide tooth comb, and start over. Truly this has been a game changer for my dark, thin hair. Makes my hair look 10 times thicker than what it truly is.

Great root soray and style extender

Target mom - 10 months ago, Verified purchaser
This is a great root spray for sections of fine hair prior to curling. It provides grit and staying power with a matte finish. Beware, it adds a weird, dry feeling to hair. I believe it also works to absorb oils as my hair enters day 3, thus extending time between washes. Use on freshly cleaned hair not on dirty hair like you would a dry shampoo, however.

After all the YouTube tutorials I still haven’t been able to effectively use these pins - also purchased the smaller size - neither work for me. Seems like the trick is to use texturizing product on hair before use but I don’t want to put that kind of build up on my hair on regularly.

This Is An Excellent dupe for Sexy Hair Powder. I love the pump but It does take some time getting used to. I use the product to build volume around my center part. Sometimes, by accident I overuse, however a quick brush-through helps distribute the powder so Im never left with too much product on my roots. It takes a little practice at first, but im so happy I switch brands. It's saving me a ton of money!

I love these hair pins! They are so pretty, easy to use, and so gentle on hair! I do not have great “hair skills” but these are so easy to use. (The video is great too.). My hair stays put and the style is much more comfortable than hair elastics.
