The secret to achieving the beachy hair of your dreams? Texture spray. Hairstylists love it, models swear by it, and now it's your turn to discover the wonders it can do!
What exactly can texture spray do for your hair anyway? Ouai's description of their own texturizing spray probably sums it up—it's the end-result "if dry shampoo and hairspray had a baby." Or, acccording to celebrity hairstylist Mark Rosales, it's a product that can help your hair build volume and texture. Accordingly, it can also make your hairstyle last longer like hairspray can. "I flip the hair upside down after styling and spray [it on] the roots to give more volume and texture," he explains. So if you have naturally limp hair you want to breathe some life into, this baby will get the job done.
To use it, Mark recommends spraying it on the roots from at least a six-inch distance, working in horizontal sections from the nape to the top of the head. Then, lightly massage to distribute the product evenly. And by lightly, we mean very gently, since too much stimulation can make your scalp produce oil. After this, it should have the kind of oomph to pass the "I woke up like this" test.
To give yourself some tousled waves, celebrity hairstylist Renz Pangilinan suggests spritzing it all over the hair and messing it with your fingers. But if you want that grunge-y look, Renz's trick is to spray more at the ends and do more scrunching. FYI, if you're using a sea salt-based texture spray, make sure you prep your locks with a hydrating serum first so the salt won't dry them out!
