Recently, texturizing hair sprays have taken the beauty world by storm. It all started with the ever so expensive Oribe dry texturizing spray that was raved about by top beauty bloggers such as Vivianna Does Makeup, Lily Pebbles and Zoella. It can be found in the likes of Space NK for a whopping £39 and I’m not going to lie, after all the hype surrounding it, I was almost tempted to splurge. However, after a bit of umming and ahhing, I decided £39 is a little excessive for something that lots of people would consider a glorified hairspray.
With this being said, you can imagine my joy when Charles Worthington released a more purse friendly version of the ever so popular hair texturiser - their 'Volume & Bounce texturising spray'. The reason I was so curious to try a texturising spray in the first place is because I love a bit of volume in my hair – it helps it look more styled and I often like to go for that messy bed head look which textursing sprays can help to achieve in a more natural way than hairspray or volumising powders. Do those powders leave anyone else's hair feeling like you’ve not washed it for a good few weeks? Never a good thing!
Now I wasn’t expecting to be totally blown away by a hair product because other than Moroccan Oil, I’ve never found any that I always go back to and consider ‘must haves’. However, this one may well be an exception. Since buying it a few weeks back – I’ve used it almost every single day! It’s the perfect product for every kind of hair day - if my hair is having one of those 'just been washed and has no volume' moments or whether I’ve just rolled out of bed and need a quick hair fix – this product is my hairs best friend. All I do I spritz it onto the mid lengths to ends, scrunch it up with my fingers and leave it to do its thing. It adds instant texture and volume and allows me to dash out of the house with hair that feels somewhat styled – despite making very little effort.
In terms of how it feels in the hair – it adds texture as the name would suggest but doesn’t make it feel weighed down or stiff like a hairspray would. I can definitely tell there’s product in my hair when I’ve used it but again, it just feels like it has more texture – not greasy or heavy. It doesn't add any colour either like a dry shampoo - its completely transparent and can't be detected in the hair. Its worth noting that my hair does need washing more frequently when I’ve been using it as it can start to make my hair feel dry. However, this isn't a big deal for me as I tend to wash my hair every other day anyway. I also need to mention how amazing this product smells – I could continue using it for that reason alone. Its like perfume for my hair!
Overall I’d say this is a great product and one worth trying if you want to add an extra something something to your barnet. It’s a good one for lazy girls, people who lack volume or people who like that messy texturised look. So that's the majority of us then? Its definitely going to be a staple for me in the Summer when I get even lazier with my hair routine – who can be bothered styling their hair when its hot? No – just me?
