Would you like a fuller mane? Then a volume powder could be of interest to you. We'll tell you what the product can do and how it works best.
Bad hair days for women with thin hair usually look very similar: The hair is flat and stringy and there is no trace of volume at the roots. But you don't have to grab the elastic and tie your hair in a ponytail or messy bun.
There is also another way that you can give your mane more swing and wear it openly. Volume powder is the magic word and should be a real styling miracle especially for everyone with fine hair.
We'll tell you how volume powder works and how you can best use it.
If you have never used a volume powder, the first use could take a little getting used to. In contrast to common styling products such as hairspray, foam, or gel, these are, as the name suggests, actually fine, dry powder particles. But it is precisely the unusual, dry consistency that makes the product a real all-rounder.
The fine particles fluff up the hair at the roots and make it appear fuller. A great side effect: the styling powder has a similar effect to a dry shampoo: it absorbs oil.
This is how you use volume powder correctly
If you want more body and volume, simply apply the powder to dry hair directly at the hairline.
Tip: It's best to part with a part that you don't normally wear. This means that possible residues of the white powder are not noticeable after styling. For example, if you usually have a side parting on the right side, you should move the parting to the left side before use and apply the product to the hairline along the parting there. Let the powder take effect for a few seconds and then massage in gently.
For more structure and grip, simply rub some powder between the palms of your hands and then knead into the lengths of your hair. For example, braids and updos are easy and last better.

Maria Nila's hair powder is particularly suitable for hair that becomes greasy quickly: it absorbs excess oil and product residues and gives the hairline more freshness in no time at all. The powder should also give volume and structure. Another plus point: The product is free of parabens and silicone and is therefore also suitable for a sensitive scalp.

How to remove volume powder from your hair: Here's how
Volume powder should normally not leave any residue in the hair. If you still have the feeling that you can feel the particles on your scalp or in your hair, you can either easily comb them out with a hairbrush or remove them while washing your hair.
If you regularly use volume powder, dry shampoo, or other styling products, you can also use a special scalp peeling every now and then. The peeling removes styling residues and dead skin very thoroughly and is also intended to prevent dandruff.
