Long gone are the days where I'd spend over an hour doing my hair every single day. Curling my hair with curling tongs, heated and overnight rollers, using different brushes and products, straighteners, the works. Now? The thought of so much effort makes me never want to do my hair again.
TTexturising products can make adding volume and shape to fine hair like mine really easy for an everyday quick look. I've added texurising and volumising sprays into my routine before, with my favourite being the Bumble and Bumble Thickening Hairspray, which I find adds as much texture as it does volume (read review here). You can use the Thickening Hairspray dry hair as well, but I find it more effective on damp hair before drying and styling. But that still means having to do something with my hair, and I prefer to let my hair dry naturally with no heating styling and just a touch of my current favourite hair oil through the mid-lengths to ends (currently the Moroccanoil Treatment, if anyone's interested!).
Having a product I can just pick up and use, after letting my hair dry naturally with nothing but a touch of hair oil, makes life so much easier. There's 3 in my stash I adore, ones I would repurchase (some I already have) and ones which tick all the boxes; without leaving a heavy, greasy or sticky residue to my hair as others I've tried can do. Charles Worthington is the most purse-friendly of my top texturising sprays, costing £6.99, the Volume & Bounce Texturising Spray* can be used at the roots for a touch of volume, or throughout the hair for more added texture. Less is more; too much of any product like this can be the point of no return, so I find spraying through sections before using my fingers to add volume or texture where desired. It's quick, easy and cheap - and currently on 3 for 2 offer on cosmetics at Boots!
Bumble and Bumble is always a favourite for volumising and texturising products. The Bb. Thickening Dryspun Finish is a cheaper alternative to the cult Oribe Texturising Spray. A nice light-weight texture, it's a translucent spray (so it's suitable for all hair colours) and works well with styling brushes and combs. It uses Wheat Proteins, Zeolite and Silk Powder which work together to create manageable texture in a flash - it's the quickest for getting the desire look of my favourites (read review here). I turn to Cityswept Finish when I have a bit more time to spare, and want something that will hold that touch longer with more definition. I find it just a smidgen heavier in consistency, and so I keep this one to lightly sprayed towards my roots, before adding a touch to my mid-lengths and ends. If you want a texturising spray that lasts all day, this is the one. At £21.50 each, both of Bumble and Bumble's offerings aren't cheap, but they last a long time making them worth the splurge if you can afford it.
