I saw a lady use this on a You Tube video and decided to try it for my hair that is beginning to look a little thin at the crown. I have several cowlicks that help to add to my problem. After my hair is washed and dried, I take a small bit of powder and rub it between my palms, then work it into my hair right before backcombing and styling with a pick to add height at the crown. Then I use hair spray to finish. It works really well to add volume and helps to hold the style in place. My thin spot is barely noticable then.
