Redken Powder Grip 03 Mattifying Hair Powder Review

Earlier this year I purchased Redken Powder Grip Mattifying Hair Powder from my favorite salon, Cameo. My stylist Lori had been raving about how much I would love it. And she’s right. I do love it. So let me tell you why.

The Website Claims:
Gives hair a modern matte finish with amazing texture and fullness, and adds grip to prep hair for long-lasting updos.

How to Use:
Shake directly onto roots for targeted volume. To add body and texture to the mid-lengths and ends, shake onto hands and work through hair.
*powder grip 03 is a highly concentrated formula, so only a small amount is needed to achieve noticeable results.


Does it live up to its claims?
Yes! OMG this stuff is awesome! My hair is straight, fine, and bordering on thin. I don’t have a lot. So I want volume or I look flat. I just lift it up and I have awesome hair! Watch my little video demo below.

This works really well on my short hair but I think it would work equally well to give volume to long hair. It also recommends using to help an updo stay up.

Would I purchase again?
Yes! This is now my favorite styling product of all time! It seriously gives me the volume I crave when I use it. It’s awesome. It doesn’t make my hair feel bad at the end of the day, it gives me volume, it gives me hold. If it slips at all, I just rub my fingers against my scalp and va va voom! I’ve got volume again.

Once I run out, I’m purchasing this again, and again and again. This is a really awesome product for me.

Product purchased by me. All opinions are my own.

      Hey thanks a lot for blogging about this…

      Oh, this sounds really interesting. I have very thin hair too and could sometimes use extra volume at my roots! Is this substantially different from dry shampoo?

      • Phyrra

        Yeah it’s not like a dry shampoo. The dry shampoos that I’ve tried soak up oil and dirt, and while they can create a bit of volume, they don’t give a lot. This gives a lot of volume and some hold.

      Great tip, I love poofy hair :D I used to own several other redken products in the past and I was never disappointed, so I think this will be great when the weight of my hair starts wearing it down as it grows longer.

        I’m a total Redken convert! I also love my volume.

      I have a similar product by Got 2 Be. I wonder how they compare?

      • Phyrra

        I would love to know! Does it apply the same way? This is basically a powder and when you rub it, it sort of emulsifies and adds volume and hold.

          I have the Got2Be and one by Aveda, and they both sound pretty similar to this one. The G2B is very inexpensive, though, especially if it’s on sale!
