Flat lifeless hair has been a regular thing for me for a very long time. A few months ago when I had really long hair, it just felt really weighed down and styles would drop out really quickly so I decided to have the chop, it needed it anyway. Since then it has been a bit better but it still lacked a little something…
In swoops the popular Charles Worthington Texturizing Spray. I’d heard alot about this product, most of the chatter being that it’s supposedly the Oribe Dry Texturzing Spray “dupe.” I think we have all heard about Oribe and how amazing it is, and the ridiculous price tag that comes with it. I actually put off buying this for a while as I had just bought the L’oreal Volume Texturizing Spray which I wasn’t blown away with. I finally gave in and picked this up from Boots during one of their 3 for 2 events recently.
The first time I used this I’m pretty sure a naughty word escaped my lips but it was from pure delight. After a couple of sprays my hair had doubled in size. I use this after I’ve finished styling my hair and as you can see, it does indeed create volume. Oh yes, Va va voom! It’s great! I typically use it in my curls more but it’s still amazing in straight hair too however with the curls, it tends to hold them and make them last longer and give volume at the same time. I spray certain layers at the roots and give it some scrunching and fluffing and then I also spray it on my ends as well. It creates great texture and makes curls/waves appear a bit more defined all whilst giving volume to your over all look. It lasts in my hair all night and I don’t have to re-apply it. Once it’s in, I can just keep fluffing my hair up if it goes a little flatter and it’s straight back to it’s va va voom stage again. It also does a fab job on second day hair that’s up in a top-knot or ponytail as it lifts the roots and gives a more tousled natural look which I have been trying to achieve for so long now. Lastly, the scent, oh my! This smells so nice, fresh and fruity and to me this is the perfect scent for a hair product.
I really don’t know why I held out for so long as I now use this every time I style my hair, I just can’t get over how much volume and hold it gives to your hair. From Boots, this product is only £6.99 whereas the Oribe is a whopping £38.00! I know, it makes my eye water too! I’m keeping my eyes peeled for a miniature version for my handbag just in case I have a hair emergency and I have another bottle ready to go for when this one runs out. This product is worth every penny and definitely deservers the hype that surrounds it. I never thought I would have voluminous hair but now I can!
Have you used this texturizing spray? What are your thoughts on it?
