Volumionous hair seems to be the number one hair request now a days – well, at least it is for me anyway. I have long hair, that is fine and generally quite flat and quite a pain in the bum to get looking like it has any volume. Over the years I have picked up a whole load of tricks (blow drying upside down, hairspray, not using too much conditioner etc etc) but I am always in search of miracle products that give me a little more oomph. I recently found one in the shape of LUSH Big Shampoo which I reviewed recently. But I have also found another one that I wanted to share my review of: Label.M Resurrection Style Dust.
With a name like Resurrection Style Dust I think the first thing that I thought was that it would be like dry shampoo, but this couldn’t be further from the truth. This is a magical product that you use as a finishing step to hair styling, to give hair a boost and help get the volumised, bed-head look.
The dust comes in a small pot that is a similar size to a large bottle of nail varnish. This might sound weird, but it’s fascinating to look at the dust if you give the pot a shake – it is so fine that a small shake puffs the powder up and then it gradually deflates as the weight of the powder pushes the air out. I know, this sounds a bit bizarre – but it actually helps demonstrate how clever the powder is. It is so fine that it almost weighs the same as air – a good thing when you are on the quest of volume.
So, enough about looking at the product – how does it work? (and more importantly DOES it work?) To use this powder – you simply shake the pot to dispense a *tiny* amount to the roots. Then, scrunch the roots up with your fingers to get the hair poofed (yes, that’s a technical term).
So, does it deliver? It does, there is no doubt that this product delivers volume. I really like it, but there are a few points about it that may mean that it wont suit everyone. The powder creates messy volume and feels a bit sticky as it turns into a paste-like texture when applied – the messy texture isn’t necessarily what everyone wants, so if you are looking for a neat style then this wont be for you. I also know that some people don’t like the sort of product you can feel – as my Mum says, hair feels ‘clarty’ (she means dirty) – then you probably won’t like this. You do have to be careful not to use too much or else hair will feel *too* sticky but it won’t necessarily add any extra volume than using just a small amount.
It should also be noted that this isn’t a product to be used all over – just at the roots, I use it on the crown area to create really localised volume.
Having said that this is a product you can feel, one of the things I really like about it is that it is one you can ‘resurrect’ (see what I did there) throughout the day. If you feel your hair is dropping a bit, all you need to do is scrunch up your roots again where you applied the product and the volume will be revived – just like magic.
Label.M Resurrection Style Dust costs £9.25 from Toni and Guy salons. I think this is pretty good value and only using a tiny amount means the product will last a really long time. I was sent this to review but will definitely buy this again when my sample runs out. If you want some messy root volume, or a bed head style then I think this is worth a look – as long as you factor in the points I mentioned earlier to decide if this is the product for you.
