Fuller Hair and More with Volumising Powder


Volumising powder comes to the rescue when hair is not full enough or not manageable enough. It solves several styling problems at once. The fine, light powder adds fullness to fine hair, makes limp hair more manageable, and refreshes hair between shampoos. We describe how to take full advantage of volumising powder to create fuller, more manageable, and more appealing hairstyles

Volumising powder is a potent problem solver when hair is limp or does not have enough grip for updos, twirls or braids. As a welcome side-effect volumising powder also freshens up oily hair between shampoos. The ultra-light and fine powder is suitable for any hair type and length, and it helps with many hair problems.

The Praises of Volumising Powder

Volume: The main role of volumising powder is to add fullness and bounce to thin or limp hair. Simply apply it where more volume is needed. The volumising micro-particles fluff up hair for added volume without teasing and blow-drying. There is no faster way to turn limp, lifeless hair into a full head of impressively bouncy hair.

Structure and Shape: Volumising powder adds definition to your hairstyle. Hairstyles from bobs to updos look fuller and therefore also shapelier.

Hold: Hairstyles hold their shapes better and longer thanks to the magical powers of volumising powder. Hair jewellery, slides, and pins also stay in place longer.

Manageability: The hair’s manageability determines how well you can create the desired hairstyles. Hair can be styled much easier in the presence of volumising powder. Especially twirled and braided hair elements are easier to manage with the volumising micro-particles in your hair.

Freshness: Volumising powder absorbs oil and therefore counteracts the bedraggled look of oily hair. Your hair will look fresher in seconds.

Matte Finish: You may also like to use volumising powder to create a matte finish for undone looks. The powder works well for the cool out-of-bed look for men and undone bobs for women (see for example the casual hairstyle of Cameron Diaz).

How to Apply Volumising Powder

Volumising is applied where it is needed either near the hair roots or around the hair ends. Simply sprinkle a small amount of volumising powder on the desired portion of your hair and use your fingers to distribute the powder thoroughly. Alternatively, you may like to distribute the powder in the palms of your hands or on your fingers and work it through the targeted part of your hair. The powder does not need to be brushed out of the hair. It leaves no visible residue and is washed away during the next shampoo.

Volumising Powder: Always Ready to Help

Volumising powder promises ‘instant styling help’. Instant help is what you get! Use volumising powder on your dry hair any time at home, at work, and while you travel. It will instantly freshen up your hair. The reliable powder in the small box fits into every bag or in the glove compartment of a car.  

In his video tutorial, Schwarzkopf hair stylist Armin Morbach shows how to use volumising powder to create a matte finish for undone hairstyles.
