Handbag Heroes: The Hair Powder Volumisers Edit

Saturday 20 June 2015

Big hair will always be in fashion, but if your hair is fine like mine is and prone to looking as flat as a pancake, look no further.  Here are some of my favourite Hair Powder Volumisers which also fit nicely into your handbag.

Hair Volumisers come all in shapes, sizes and formats, but I wanted to focus this edit on the Powder based ones that I personally use.  As my hair can get oily quite quickly, especially in the summer months, I often find powder formulas are much more effective for me than sprays or mousses.

TIGI Bed Head Candy Fixations Sugar Dust* (1g, £7.45, link)
Sugar Dust is a fab multi-purpose product which adds texture, creates some volume at the roots and it absorbs excess oil for a matte finish.  It has a little shaker filter, so you just sprinkle a tiny amount into your roots, massage it in and voila, instant texture and a little volume boost!  Holds well throughout the day and once massaged in, the powder becomes invisible even in dark hair like mine.

Swell Ultimate Volume Dry Shampoo* (14.5g, £20, link)
If you want a truly fantastic dry shampoo combined with an equally fantastic powder volumiser, then Swell's Ultimate Volume Dry Shampoo is the hair product of your dreams.  I've been so impressed with Swell's haircare in general (check out my reviews here) that I had a feeling this was going to be good, but once I actually tried it, it exceeded even those expectations.  The formula is 97% natural and free from Silicones, SLS and Parabens.  This is by far one of the best dry shampoos I've ever used and it gives noticeable volume to the hair as well.  It's pricey, but worth it in my opinion and lasts for around 65 applications.

Gofybr Hair Building Fibres* (12.5g, £13.95, link)
For something different to try, I decided to test out Gofybr which is a product aimed at primarily men who have thinning hair, as I was curious to see whether this would work for general volumising/thickening purposes.  Gofybr uses 100% organic cotton fibres which naturally bind to your own strands of hair when you massage the powder in.  It comes in 10 different colours and I was surprised by how well it worked with creating volume and the illusion of thickness.  Not just for men then!

I also wanted to give a quick mention to the Whitney Marie Detangling Brush* (£8.99, link) that I've been enjoying using recently.  It's very much like the Tangle Teezer (which you all know I love!), but with a handle so it's much easier to grip and use.  One to look out for if you're in the market for a new brush and it can be used in the shower as it's made out of plastic.

Do you use hair powder volumisers?

  1. The swell one sounds amazing! i like that you get so many applications because 64 is a lot!


    1. It is! Comes in an eco friendly pump so the powder is concentrated :)

  2. Gofybre sounds really interesting - if it's good enough for balding men, it'll be good enough for my thin hair!

  3. I'm using Batistes's XXL Plumping Powder and I'm happy with the results but Swell sounds really interesting. Gotta try it.
