Texturing agents – a must-have for those who love simple styling. The main tasks of such products are to emphasize the real texture of the hair, thicken it and add volume to the hairstyle. We have chosen several options for every taste – from classic salt sprays to two-in-one shampoo and clays.
Hair texturizing spray
Innersense Organic Beauty I Create Waves
The California brand Innersense impresses primarily with its mission to create products with the most organic composition and approach production responsibly, as well as the love with which the founders and spouses Joan and Greg relate to product development. Also worthy of attention is the salt spray, which has already been praised by curly blogger Alexandra Sheveleva in her telegram channel. Best of all, it suits the owners of already wavy hair – according to Alexandra, with it they acquire a more rigid structure and better keep their shape.
Tigi Bed Head Superstar Queen For A Day Thickening Spray
An excellent two-in-one product from Tigi hair experts. Best for owners of thin hair – the creators of the product promise that the hairspray will give the hair not only a more flexible texture, but also volume at the roots, while not sticking the hair together. The only negative is the sweet fragrance, which may not please everyone.
Dry texturizing spray
for hair Moroccanoil Dry Texture Spray
The Israeli brand Moroccanoil is known for the fact that all products are based on the key ingredient – argan oil. This texturizing spray is no exception. It nourishes the hair while giving it a fluid texture that is easy to work with for regular lush styling as well as for more complex hairstyles. And if you treat the oil in the composition with care – do not worry, the product does not leave a sticky finish.
Matt clay for fixing
Matrix Style Link Matte Definer Beach Clay
Clay is great not only for facial care, but also for creating a more dynamic texture on the hair. And if you have a short haircut, most likely you will like this personalized product: on short hair it is easier to work with clay than with salt sprays, it provides a more reliable hold, and also absorbs excess sebum (another plus), leaving a matte finish.
Dry definition spray
Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray
The hairdressers-stylists participating in our materials have repeatedly confessed their love for the Oribe brand, and they can be understood – the brand’s products really live up to their expectations. In recent years, the Oribe range has expanded to make-up, perfumery and even styling tools, but we recommend starting your acquaintance with the brand with hair products. This spray for dry definition and also the bestseller of the brand combines two functions at once. Firstly, it works like a dry shampoo, absorbing excess sebum at the roots, and secondly, it is responsible for root volume and flexible texture. And it also smells amazing – as the editor of Byrdie admits, “you can write poetry about the Oribe signature fragrance,” and it’s hard to disagree with that.
Hair shampoo with sea salt
Another multifunctional product is Lush vegan shampoo with the poetic name “Ocean”. As you might guess, in the center of the composition there are crystals of sea salt, which are responsible for the creation of the very “beach” styling. So, if you are usually in a hurry in the morning and you do not have time for styling, it is quite possible to do with one tool. The list of ingredients also includes lemon and neroli oils, seaweed and vanilla – so there is no doubt about the smell.
Dry texturizing spray
for volume R + Co Balloon Dry Volume Spray
California brand R + Co is the brainchild of Hollywood hair stylists Howard McLaren, Garren, Tom Priano and Ashley Streicher. The team takes the development of their products seriously – no ingredients that provoke debate on the Internet, no animal testing, and only a vegan composition. We advise you to try the Balloon Dry Volume texturizing spray, which has won the recognition of many beauty editors – it is suitable for all types of hair (but especially fine) and will give them the lightest volume without weighing them down. And it smells no worse than Oribe – the scent is based on notes of cardamom, pineapple, tangerine, lavender and bamboo.
Hair texturizing spray
with movable fixation
Another tool for creating a movable volume of the Australian brand Kevin.Murphy (we talked about it in detail here). Spray with a telling name for a casual styling a la “I just got out of bed” will give hair a pleasant texture without weighing down, and will also strengthen hair thanks to a nutritious vegan composition – among the ingredients are extracts of sunflower seeds, ginger root and camellia leaves.
Salt spray for textured styling Sachajuan Ocean Mist Beach Spray
Finally, the list would be incomplete without a salt spray to create beach waves. If you want to replace the classic Bumble & Bumble with something else in your arsenal, we recommend taking a closer look at the bestseller of the Stockholm brand Sachajuan. The founders Sasha Mitik and Juan Rosenlind really know a lot about the “marine” ingredients – the key ingredient in their products is seaweed extract. To create a hairstyle tousled by the sea wind, just apply a little spray to damp or dry hair.
