VO5 'Instant Oomph Powder'

Hello! I bought this the other week after hearing good things about it from a friend. I was a bit sceptical at first, how can a powder give you volume? I used it yesterday before going to a party and was pleasantly surprised: it kept my hair nice and voluminous. My hair is prone to being as flat as a pancake as its very thin so it's great to find something that can give it a bit of oomph.

It did make my roots very gungy and stiff - but I think this may be down to me thinking 'how can just a tiny bit of powder give my hair volume? I better put the whole bloody bottle on....'. Not a good idea. Only the smallest bit can make a big difference, so don't over do it as you will suffer the consequences.

One thing I love about this product as it lasts- not like other products I could mention, this kept my hair big all evening even with all the dancing and moving around. The product is also completely clear - you can't see anything at all, so if you have dark hair this is a plus.

Overall I really like this product, for £4.07 a pop it may not be everyones cup of tea, but if you suffer from flat hair like me, definitely give this a try.

  2. Oh wow that sounds awesome! I'll have to try it out!

  3. I need something that does the reverse of that, makes my hair a bit flat-er. oh well.


    1. do you want to swap hair? haha mine is so flat, I wish I had bigger hair!

  4. I saw this in Superdrug and was going to buy it, but I thought with it being a powder it wouldn't go too well with my dark hair. So, I might give it a go when I get some pennies :)
