Sunday Hair Day: Rock Your Hair Bombshell Big Hair Powder

Yup.  Big hair is pretty much what you get from this miracle powder.  This little bottle packs a HUGE punch that works well on both my straight and curly hair - even curly hair the day after a wash.  That's saying something because my hair usually looks all matted down and sad if I wear it curly the day after a wash.  Add this powder, and BAM.  Volume added and curls restored.  So, let's take a look at some befores and afters!  **Let me apologize for my crazy red eyes and giant bags.  The majority of these photos were taken in the morning before I went to work at around 6 am after a crappy night's sleep.**

The products they sent me for review were their Big Hair Rocks Shampoo and Conditioner, Spray it Hard Big Volume Hairspray, Size Matters Big Volume Root Lift, Miracle Leave in Conditioner and Weightless Detangler, and Bombshell Big Hair Powder.

The powder comes in a shaker bottle with holes that aren't so large that you dump the product all over yourself.  

Shake it over your roots for big volume or over your ends for texture.  The smell is amazing.  I mean, it's really really really nice.  Not all of the Rock Your Hair products smell the same, which is a bit annoying if you decide to use multiple products at once.  But for all of the products I reviewed, the Bombshell Powder smelled the best to me.

I have no idea how this stuff works, but it goes from being a powder to almost feeling like a hairspray, pomade, paste, or hair wax once you've worked it into your hair.  Here's my straight hair before I used the powder.

Here it is after I used the powder and fluffed it up at the roots with my fingers.  I look exhausted...  It makes me giggle looking back at these photos.  Hah!

You have options when you use this product.  You can let your hair go flat with a little bit of body at the roots and texture at the ends, or you can really play it up and tease the roots for huge lift.  Here is my straight hair at the end of the day.  I flipped it upside down, shook it out, and flipped back up to get this look.  Also, I almost forgot to take this pic, so you guys get a pic of me in a t-shirt.  Woohoo!

Remember how I said it worked on curly, too?  Yeah, well, let's take a look at my crappy just slept on curls.

Now, take a look at my slept on curls vamped up with the Bombshell Powder.  It not only revitalized the roots, but it also gave some texture to the curls and helped them re-curl.  LOVE IT!

Lastly, I have a photo of my new 'do, a nice asymmetrical look with choppy layers.  I used the Bombshell Powder at the beginning of a long day of shopping, and it still looked fantastic by the evening.  If you follow my Facebook page, you've seen this photo already.  I went to the Mac store with my friend Jessica from Polished 10 and got a new nighttime look, which I seriously love.  The Bombshell Powder makes this style pop by showcasing all of the layers.  It's like my new style and the Bombshell Powder were made for one another!

Do you like big hair, or is it too much for you?  I used to want my hair to be as flat as possible, but I've been really liking the volume lately.  I also love the texture and definition the Bombshell Powder provides my new haircut!  You can purchase Rock Your Hair products at salons and Ulta.  Follow the Rock Your Hair team on Facebook for news and promos.
