7 Days Of Summer Beauty Classics '08 - Day Two

Using Aveda's Pure Abundance Potion definitely takes practicing and a lot of getting used to. I think the initial learning phase scares people away. Well, at least it did me. The pale green powder delivers Ooomph (package states 17% thicker) and that is why it takes a spot on the 7 Days of Summer Beauty Classics '08 list. But using it meant that I had to enlist my baking skills.

The cap flips open on this tiny bottle to reveal a single hole that lets the powder out. One has to be careful to not shake the bottle too much as unnecessary motion turns its content into liquid. It is a 3-step process: gently turn the bottle upside down, sprinkle a small amount of the product directly at the roots by gently tapping on the bottom of the bottle (think dusting powdered sugar over a cake without the proper sifter), work the powder in by tousling and teasing the area where you want the Ooomph. As soon as the powder touches the skin, it feels cooling, as if fine ice dust has touched it. Set the volume you have just achieved with a flexible hairspray (Though I was advised against using the one from the same collection).

It brings the Va-Va back into my mostly straight but somewhat wavy medium-thickness hair. I have found it to be great at creating volume for messy buns, as well as when I leave my hair down (to past my shoulders). This is a definite Summer classic product because it also helps to fix humidity-induced greasy roots.

My question is,how could a powder thicken your hair?

shopinchic....This powder gets gummy as it becomes liquid-y upon contact. It gives grip to hair and makes the hair look bulkier. The key is to rough up the under layers of the hair with this and smooth off the top layer by brushing over it lightly, then set. It is brilliant!

Ooh sounds interesting :) Does it work similarly to dry shampoo? I've been looking for a good dry shampoo worth the $$$. My hair is also rather thin on top :(
