I'm going through a hair phase where I love having my hair in one certain way. I like to call it a shorter version of Alana's hair from HAIM, except no where near as good as hers. I straighten my hair once a week, when I wash my hair and it will stay relatively straight unless I'm caught in the rain. I will add a few waves & curls to it throughout the week, but other than that, I don't do a lot except add product. That's where these come in.
I have spoke about BB Dry Spun Spray a lot on here, but the BB Pret A Powder* has taken it's place for now. A little bit more of a fuss than a spray, but you can add texture & dry shampoo particular parts of your hair. I tip a little bit of the powder onto the tips of my fingers and rub into the roots of my hair. It's a dry shampoo, style extender and adds volume all in one, so you can't go wrong really. Run a little bit of it through the ends of the hair and it really helps add that 'bed hair wave' to my locks.
Onto sprays and for the days I don't have much time but need a little something, I will spritz a little of the Oribe Dry Texturising Spray into the bottom half of my hair. Everyone and their dog has spoke about this product so I won't talk about it too much. I like it, but I don't like as much as other people like it. For the price, I expected a lot more and there are others out there which do the same thing for less money. But for what you do get, it adds the right amount of grit to the hair in one spray and can turn freshly washed hair into second day hair.
A cheaper alternative for the Oribe spray is Charles Worthington Texturising Spray. I bought this a lot time ago and then when Amelia posted about it, I dug it out again as it's a great dupe. Now be aware that if you spray too much of this, there is no going back. I made that mistake and I was left with sticky hair, it just needed to be washed out. But if you have a light hand and only spray a little, this will be great. I tend to stick this only on the ends of my freshly washed hair, just to add a little grit and something something to it.
