Tried & Tested: Bumble & Bumble Pret-a-Powder

Bumble & Bumble Pret-a-Powder

Bad hair days are the beauty-conscious female’s worst nightmare. Flat, limp and lacklustre locks are something we just can’t seem to accept – and with the plethora of counteractive products available on the market today, nor should we have to.

Bumble & Bumble Pret-a-Powder claims to be equal parts dry shampoo, style extender and volume, which immediately sets it apart from the other hair powders on the market. Priced at £21.50 for 56g, it’s far from cheap, but given that you get the benefits of oil absorbency and volume all in one, it’s a product that’s worth a few moments of any beauty lover’s time. If, like me, you are still putting off learning to blow dry your hair properly, or like most of us, you simply don’t have the time, then Pret-a-Powder will be your best friend, adding extra oomph to lacklustre locks, and filling in the gaps between washes.

To use, sprinkle liberally through the roots and massage in with fingertips, and hey presto, big hair is yours. You can use a fair amount of product without any noticeable residue in the hair, which means there is plenty of scope for pushing the limits – the perfect secret weapon when creating looks that scream full-on glamour.

While I don’t find the volume this provides to last all day per-se, all it takes is a quick scrunch of the roots to get things looking as they should again. I tend to do this several times throughout the day, and it is seldom necessary to apply any more product once hair is styled. Pret-a-Powder does an excellent job of freshening up day-old hair, and a bottle kept in your handbag for emergency flat hair days is just the job.

Long lasting and with a silky texture, It’s ideal for anyone with oily, fine or lacklustre hair, and it definitely gets the seal of approval from me.
