VO5 Give Me Texture Instant Oomph Powder

After purchasing VO5's hair oil earlier this year (review can be found here) I looked into their styling products even more and came across this little bottle called "Give Me Texture". This products is essentially an "Oomph Powder" that adds volume to dull roots. I thought I would share my thoughts on this seeing as its not your average hair styling product.

The packaging is boring. It's a plain pink bottle with a translucent, screw top lid. It's really flimsy plastic too...weird for one of the more up-market high street brands. 

You are provided with 7g of a powdery white product. The bottle doesn't look full unless its shaken up - I think this shows the idea of the product - it volumizes roots when they're tousled with. If you pour a teeny bit of product onto the back of your hand and rub it in you get a weird feeling, one I can't quite describe. It leaves your hand looking really matte and  your fingers don't rub over it smoothly, they sort of jump across. However it is in no way sticky or greasy. 

When I applied this product to my hair...I had to wash it out straight after. It adds volume, but doesn't leave you with a very nice feel to your hair. It leaves it "bunged up" and hard to move. It's a feeling similar to when you don't wash out all the conditioner or mousse from you hair - generally wrong. 

I'm sure that some people won't find this an issue but personally I hate the feeling of my hair being clogged with product. It does give you some volume but I think the horrible feeling your left with outweighs the products benefits. I wish I didn't feel this way as I think it's a fantastic idea! 

You can buy it here for £4.19. Have you ever tried this product? What do you think to VO5's styling range? Can you recommend any other root boosters?
