Big Hair, Don't Care: VO5 Instant Oomph Powder

Lately, I've been noticing my hair looking really flat and limp, so firstly, I decided to go and get a few inches chopped off and some shorter layers added in. Despite loving my long locks, it was just weighing down my roots too much! Then, having heard that they're a little pot of miracles for creating big hair, I went on the hunt for a volumising powder. VO5's Instant Oomph Powder caught my eye with it's pretty pink pot, and since it was in a 2 for £5 offer in Asda and I needed a new hairspray anyway, it'd have been rude not to...

The powder creates tons of volume by adding texture and lifting the roots. I use it after styling, and then pop it in my handbag to refresh my hair throughout the day. I find the powder quite difficult to apply evenly over my head, so although a little does go a long way, I find myself using too much in order to try and spread it out. It also doesn't feel particularly nice if you run your fingers through your hair, and does (generally) require a hair wash the next day, but there's no denying that this product works. The proof's in the pudding:

Good right!? Have you tried any volumising powders? What're your favourite products for getting big hair?
