I decided to pick this up as I feel that sometime my hair can look as little bit flat and wanted something to give it a little boost. I have previously tried Schwarzkopf Osis Dust It but chose Vo5 Give Me Texture Instant Oomph Powder as it was on offer with other Vo5 products and I’d also picked up their heat protecting spray which you can read about here.
All of the packaging in the Vo5 range is bright pink which I really love, and as this is a product that you might pop in your bag it makes it a little easier to find. The powder is really fine, and comes out a small hole at the top of the bottle. To use you just give it a shake and add it to the roots of your hair. It recommends that you sprinkle it from the bottle into your hair however I find it much easier to put the powder into your hands and apply to your hair using your finger tips. A little goes a long way with this product so bear that in mind when using it.
I find that this is best to on your hair the day after you’ve washed it as it gives your hair a unsual feeling. It’s not sticky and doesn’t leave your hair tangled, but you can definitely feel the product if you touch it. I’ve your like me and hate being able to feel products in your hair then you’ll want to wash it out at the end of the day. I find that this gives my hair volume for around 5 hours before I feel like it could maybe do with a touch up but I have really thick hair so it might last longer if you have finer hair. I don’t really think this is a problem to be honest as the bottle is small enough that you could even pop it in a large clutch bag.
Overall I really like this product and would pick it up again, however if you don’t like the feel of products in your hair then this may not be for you. Have you tried Vo5’s Instant Oomph Powder? If you have, what did you think of it? Or is there another product that you would recommend?
