Hair powder, anyone

I have been looking for hair powder at my local grocery stores but without success. Is that something you can only get at a hairdresser (I never go to hairdressers, so wouldn't know) or is it a product that will arrive in Switzerland 5 years later?

Re: Hair powder, anyone

What is hair powder? Is it like dry shampoo?

OK just googled it. I've never seen it here only the normal dry shampoo stuuf.

no, it's powder you put on to make your hair get into shape better, for example nice evening hairdos.

You can get it in German stores across the border, like "Muller". Schwarzkopf makes it under got2be line. It costs about 3-4€. If I happen to be in Germany, I can pick it up for you.

Re: Hair powder, anyone

Funny I just bought a product called "Special Dust" by L'Oreal. It was recommended to me by a hairdresser in London at Charles Worthington Hairdresser's. They swear by this product and they are the supposedly the best hair salon in London. They have the contract to do all the hairdo's for the Bafta Awards. Best hair salon I have ever been to and best hair cut I have ever got. I have yet to use the product though although the hairdresser I had put it in his hair and it did do amazing things - lots of volume and hold. I bought it in London but I am sure you would be able to find this L'Oreal product locally.

Re: Hair powder, anyone

Found hair powder in the Drogerie, it's called got2b and I swear it works. 9 SFR though for a tiny little boox, but that's for another thread.
