This Powder Will Replace Your Texturizer, Dry Shampoo and Hairspray
By Danielle Fontana, Digital Editor |
Every woman has a hair style or makeup look that makes them feel their best—for me, it's loose curls and some bronzer. But I can't be the only one who goes through countless bottles of hair products hoping one will finally add long-lasting volume and life to my thin and relatively straight strands to make the look a bit more dramatic and not so flat. From coating my curls in different texturizing sprays to spritzing them with the best hairsprays in the business, nothing I tried would deliver noticeable body (especially at the roots) for longer than half an hour and it seemed like my go-to style would never be as voluminous on me as it was on my Pinterest feed—until an unexpected formula totally changed the game.

I never would have thought that a powder could deliver more volume, texture and holding powder than a spray could, but Oribe’s new Swept Up Volume Powder Spray ($42) completely proved me wrong. The easy-to-use, mess-free spray pump diffuses a light-as-air powder onto the roots to create height and grit without any weight or oil like typical sprays can. In fact, the powder absorbs excess oil at the scalp, acting as a dry shampoo where you need the most absorption, too. The formula delivers serious holding power (it’s tough for me to even run my fingers through my hair the next day after sleeping on it!) you can feel immediately and uses tapioca starch, aloe vera, hydrolyzed quinoa, baobab seed and saw palmetto fruit extract (rich in vitamins A, D, E and F) to add volume on contact while strengthening, hydrating and protecting strands from breakage and UV damage.
Simply point and shoot where you'd like to add body and enhance texture—it's designed to be focused at the root for a sexy, "just teased" effect that seriously lasts all day, but when used throughout the lengths of your strands, adds the same grit, volume and hold you'd only expect from three different sprays (plus a few touch-ups) for your most confident style yet.
