|Schwarzkopf ‘Got2b Powder’ful’ //£3.99|
Can you believe how quick this year is going already? I mean it’s FEBRUARY! I can already tell that 2013 is going to be a exciting and productive year even though I’ll be turning ‘twen-teen’ in October. I refuse to believe I’m leaving my teenage years behind… Today I have another product review for you on something that I had pretty high hopes for.
Let me start off by saying that I don’t buy a lot of ‘products’ for my hair apart from shampoo, conditioner. hairspray and the odd ‘Aussie’ treatment. I really need to broaden my horizons and I thought I had by purchasing this from my local Superdrug store. I think I’d seen this advertised about 5 times every single day in between television programmes and thought I’d see what all the hype was about. The product is described as a ‘Volumizing Styling Powder’ that is supposed to create an excessive amount of volume at your roots in ‘an instant’. I was interested in this as when I go out for drinks with my friends I like to make a bit more effort and put in & curl my extensions and I thought this would give it extra ‘oomph’. I certainly need the extra help as I have naturally poker-straight hair.
With this product you can either tap the powder straight onto your roots or into your hands then work it into your hair, I decided to go for the hands approach. The powder seemed like a regular weightless powder at first and then when I began to work it into my roots the texture completely changed. It felt really dry as if I had put some form of clay into my hair and was difficult to style. Turning to my backcombing brush to rescue my hair, I managed to style it in a way that did look ‘volumized’. Hurrraaahh, the product worked… for ten minutes. After faffing around getting ready when I looked back into the mirror my hair was flat, again. When I woke up the next morning I thought the nightmare had ended until it came to brushing my hair & it being so tough, it was like clay had dried in my roots. I did give this a couple of chances but each time it has failed me, I’m so disappointed. Overall rating – 3/10
