Don’t fear the grit! The naturally rough texture of this hair essential creates volume and sexy separation.

Oscar Blandi

Birchbox Breakdown

Legendary stylist Oscar Blandi calls this product Dry Teasing Dust, but if you’ve always dreamed of voluminous locks, the word magic might come to mind. Sprinkle a little at the roots for instant lift and miraculous volume. Or run it through your hair for a tousled, beachy look. It’s great for updos, spot fixes to flat tresses, and blowout refreshers.

How it Works

A mix of microfibers and natural ingredients like cassava root that give the hair thickness at the base and just the right amount of stickiness to stand up. We also love the matte finish it gives—very chic.

How to Use

Shake a small amount directly onto roots, then use fingers to massage scalp and frisk up hair. You’ll get instant lift without any white residue from the powder itself. Backcomb hair for a more dramatic effect.

Works Great...But...
Purchased

I use hair powder and hairspray every single day for my job and have used almost every volumizing powder out there. (Or at least the popular ones.) This one works just fine...except the price is a little steep. It's almost twice as much as some hair salon brands (found on sale) or 4 times as much as ones you buy at the drugstore.

These products are all essentially the same...so save the money!

Ok
Purchased

This product is ok. Not so great for the price plus feels a little sticky. Smells good but wouldn't recommend especially for how small it is and the price

Decent, but heavy
Purchased

This stuff sort of works...it makes the hair at your roots sticky, so you can kind of tack them up a bit and make it a little undone, however my very fine hair even with the smallest amount of this gets heavy and gross and just sort of looks oily and then goes flat after 20 minutes or so. Not a huge fan, rarely use it, though my boyfriend likes it for his short hair.

Great Grit
Purchased

I love this product when my hair needs a little more texture. Also when I want a sexier messy hairstyle. My favorite application of it is when I need to braid my bangs, throw some of this in to give it a little grit and hold. Worth the money, will last forever!

I'll go without
Purchased

I bought this product along with Oscar Blandi's dry shampoo. This was my first time using Oscar Blandi after reading a review in a magazine. This product makes my hair look oily at the roots. It's only volumizing if you keep touching it up. I won't be using the rest.

Love it!
Purchased

I have oily and thin hair so am always looking for a product that won't weigh down my hair even more. And this is it! Just sprinkle some into your roots, rub it in, and magically you have volume! I'll be using this product every day for as long as I can!

Great texture
Purchased

I wear my hair many different ways, trying this out kind of just took my usual sleek polished curls to a more rough and edgy look. It worked with my 2nd day hair and I loved how it looked.

What I've always looked for
Purchased

FINALLY there is a dry shampoo-type product that does exactly what I need: gives texture to my fine hair, making it easy to lift at the roots for some great volume. This is different from dry shampoo in that it helps your hair get really BIG, something I haven't found with any other product.

amazing product for fine/limp hair
Purchased

This powder is great for that second day, when your fine/limp hair is not doing much. Sprinkle a little in for help getting a little more body. It doesn't really cover up grease very well, though, so it's not useful as a dry shampoo.

Works Great!

It is easy to use, and works very well! Adds super volume and it STAYS, but yet allows you for some flexibility. I have teased my hair the old school way with tons of hairspray, and once you go there, your hair is a mess- it's hard to comb through and kinda gross. This product makes teasing/ volumizing super easy and still leaves it workable.
