Hair Haul

Big and Beautiful.

That's how I like my hair. Sadly, my hair is somewhat lacking in the volume department so last week I picked up some goodies in the hope that I could put some life back in my locks.

I had saved up quite a few points on my Boots Advantage card so decided to use them to buy my goodies.

The first three items are from Trevor Sorbie. (These are currently 3 for 2)

Beautiful Volume Hairspray

This claims to be a day long hairspray which is designed to hold your 'do in place without weighing it down. I've not yet managed to put it to any serious styling tests yet, but so far it seem like a decent hair spray and it doesn't have that usual choke-me hairspray scent.

Beautiful Volume Thickening Shampoo

This shampoo smells lovely and fresh and lathers really well. After blow drying I can definitely feel a difference in body in my hair and it feels really nice and soft. I'd definitely recommend this and I will repurchase as I think it has become a new favourite.

Beautiful Volume Volume Booster

This styling spray should be used on towel dried hair to help boost volume after drying. I do like how this adds volume to my hair but I feel like you need to be careful not to use too much as it does leave a bit of stickiness in your hair if overused. It also has added heat protection which is a bonus.

All 3 products cost £5.10 each.

The final product I got was one that I'd heard a lot about and that I was keen to try.

Schwarzkopf Got2be Powder'ful Volumizing Styling Powder.

As stated in the name it's a styling powder which focuses on adding instant lift and body to the roots. You sprinkle some powder onto your fingers and work it into your roots. The powder disappears and you're left with good lift and texture which gives the hair a voluminous appearance. It's a great instant boost however the powder does leave a residue in your hair so it doesn't leave you free to run your fingers through your hair. I think this is a great product to use when backcombing and creating a style which needs lots of height.

Have any of you guys tried these products? What are your favourite hair care and volumising products?



  1. Me to, I'm lacking volume big time :( I haven't tried any of these, but would love to know your thoughts :)

  2. OMG I can't find this Got2be Powder'ful Volumizing Styling Powder anywhere, I really want to try it, I've heard it's awesome!

  3. @ littlemisssparkls - I'll let you know my full thoughts after a couple of weeks...
