What is hair volume powder?
Hair volume powder is a relatively new product that is quickly getting popular. It is a bit of a strange product that is either silica silylate based or based on potato, rice- or corn starch. A hair volume powder thickens your hair and adds volume. That is also why this product is populair for pre-styling, but you can only apply it in dry hair.
Hair volume powder needs to be applied at the hair roots to achieve lift, volume, texture and a matte finish. It is great to give thin or fine hair a boost because it will make the hair look thicker and fuller. You can use hair powders by itself or as a pre-styler.
Properties of hair volume powder
The key property of hair volume powder is that it provides texture and volume. It is best used by men with thin or fine hair as a pre-styler, but you should obviously not blow-dry your hair. Make sure it is applied at your roots to achieve the best results. After that you can apply another styling product for more hold and styling.
Hair volume powders usually provide a medium hold with a matte finish. They give a dry finish, so you can not easily see the scalp. Some hair powders can even help to minimize bald spots at the crown of your head.
What hairstyles work best with hair volume powder?
Hair volume powders work best for hairstyles with a lot of texture and a matte finish. And you can also use it as a pre-styler for looks that require a lot of volume. Examples that would work well with hair powder are faux hawks, french crops, fringe looks, textured quiffs and other messy or tousled hairstyles.
