Perhaps you've never heard of invisible micro-texture root powder. It was certainly a new term in my beauty language. Bed Head Candy Fixations is a line of texturizing hair products designed to help achieve today's hottest texturized looks all while intoxicating your senses with the scent of candy. Sugar Dust is one of the hottest little numbers in the line. It's an invisible micro-texture powder that has the power to add volume to your hair, no matter how fine and limp it might be, allowing movement and texture, and can even help control excess oil.

How to Use Sugar Dust

Sugar Dust is easily added to your regular hair routine. It comes in a small canister that twists open at the top to reveal small holes, kind of like a salt shaker. You simply lightly shake the product into the root of your dry, ready-to-style hair, wherever you desire a little more volume and texture, and then use the tips of your fingers to work the product into your scalp. Style as desired.

Sugar Dust can be used in addition to your regular hair products, or it may be a great replacement for some of volumizing products you are already using.

To use as a back-combing aid: sprinkle into the root of your dry hair, lift, and back-comb. Be prepared to require less back-combing than usual and to get more volume than ever before. Sugar Dust provides a solid foundation to get your more volume with less work, and less damage to your hair. Those of us out there that struggle to figure back-combing out will find that Sugar Dust makes it almost easy.

A word of caution: a little goes a long way is an understatement when it comes to this product. Because the powder is so very fine, it can be hard to see. It takes a bit of trial and error to get the correct amount under control and a little faith may be necessary to trust that the invisible powder is making it's way from the container to your head. It's getting there.

Why Sugar Dust is Especially Amazing for Fine Hair

I am especially in love with Sugar Dust for fine, limp haired girls that struggle with achieving volume and find that their hair goes greasy and/or flat within just a few hours of styling. Sugar Dust is light as air, never sticky, and easy to apply. It doesn't get heavy or gunky, and it helps control oil for hours. Mid-day flat hair is easily refreshed by simply running your fingers through your scalp, and your style gets a re-lift. The container is small enough that it makes keeping an extra in your purse as simple as carrying a lipstick. Best of all, back-combing stays put longer and hair looks thicker and fuller at the scalp.

Does Sugar Dust Work for All Hair Types?

Every hair type can benefit from Sugar Dust. It's a fun, great smelling product and gives your hair new styling options, great texture with movement, and superior volume with staying power. It does take a little getting used to, as it's really unlike most root powders I've ever used. The invisible nature of the product can lead to some initial challenges, but I absolutely love the way it makes layers pop, volume easy to achieve, and keep oil under control without feeling sticky or gunky. It's a great way to make freshly washed hair preform like "dirty" hair, or get an extra day between washings. If you have trouble using the product, I highly recommend that you see your hair stylist for advice before you give up.
