Unfortunately, I wasn't blessed with thick, voluminous hair. Listen, it's not quite a hardship, but what can I say? We all want what we can't have. My hair is stick-straight, which, yes, isn't anything to complain about. Anyways, it might be a blessing because I'm pretty lazy when it comes to styling. Since my hair is pretty low-maintenance and easy to manage, I can get away with air-drying it and just letting it do its thing most days.
But again, we want what we don't have, right? So when I'm looking at my flat strands, I dream of big, bouncy hair. And when I see people with the perfect beachy waves or just hair with a ton of body, I feel a tinge of envy. I especially feel it during those moments when I do put in the effort to curl my hair and spend all of this time on it only to have it lie flat as a pancake in just a few hours.
I've learned to deal with what I have, though, And one trick I have up my sleeve that's super quick? A volumizing hair powder. These guys really do the work for me by adding some body to the roots. All I have to do is sprinkle on the product, tussle and fluff up my roots a bit, and shake off any excess powder. While it doesn't give me the exact big hair that I have in my dreams, it does give me some extra lift and oomph that I otherwise wouldn't have. And I just love that it's a quick fix for when I'm going out.
Take a look at some highly rated volumizing hair powders below and try it for yourself if you're wishing for thicker strands like myself.
Briogeo's ultra-fine root powder adds texture and lift to the hair thanks to maltodextrin, which coats each strand but doesn't leave any residue. The formula also contains biotin to strengthen and ginseng and ginger root to stimulate blood flow to the scalp.
This spray powder will give instant volume and body to your roots and the rest of your strands. One reviewer wrote, "I was about to give up on ever having voluminous hair until I found this product. I have really thin hair and it looked like I was balding at the crown of my head before I started using this. For extra volume, I would suggest teasing your hair after you spray the powder, but honestly, the powder on its own does wonders."
