Tresemmé Plumping Powder (£5.50)
I couldn't resist reviewing this little beauty as it has quickly become one of my all time favourite hair products. I hadn't come across 'plumping powders' until my hairdresser used the Bed Head powder on my hair once and I really liked the effect it created. The Tresemmé Plumping Powder is a cheaper version of the Bed Head powder but I find it does the job just as well, if not better.
I apply the powder to the roots of my hair once I have dried, curled and styled. I gently tip the bottle and apply the powder directly onto the hair and rub in with my fingers to blend the powder in. It immediately creates a stiff root which makes it much easier to backcomb your hair and allows it to stay in place. I'm a big fan of massive hair and on a night out I'm constantly visiting the toilets to re-backcomb my hair as it always flattens. However, this plumping powder is the only product I've come across that actually makes my hair stay in place. I also think it helps you cause less damage to your hair when backcombing as you don't have to do it so much. At a reasonable price of £5.50 this is a five star product, affordable and does what it says on the bottle.
