As someone who has struggled with limp and lifeless locks, I can attest to the wonders of texturizing spray for fine hair. Texturizing spray is designed to add volume and texture to your hair without weighing it down, which is perfect for those of us with fine strands.
Not only does texturizing spray help give your hair that extra oomph it needs, but it can also help your hairstyle last longer. Fine hair can be particularly prone to falling flat throughout the day, but with the help of texturizing spray, you can maintain that volume and texture all day long. It's a quick and easy way to add some personality to your hair without having to spend hours styling it.
Texturizing spray can give you beauty waves, lift and volume for a bouncy, 90s supermodel style, and it can also add texture, thickness, or a tousled appearance to hair that’s fallen flat. This guide will help you figure out how to use texturizing spray no matter what kind of look you’re going for.
Texturizing Spray vs. Hairspray
The main difference between texturizing spray and hairspray is texturizing spray adds texture and volume, while hairspray holds your hairstyle in place. Texturizing spray can also give hair lightweight hold, but hairspray is much stronger.
Texturizing spray is also more multi-purpose and is designed to add texture, volume, and body to your hair. It absorbs oil, similar to a dry shampoo, and makes it look thicker and fuller. Texturizing spray often gives hair a tousled, beachy look and adds lift to flat hair.
Hairspray is more focused on keeping your hairstyle in place. There are light or flexible hairsprays as well as very strong ones, and they are typically labeled on the bottle how strong of a hold they will give to your hair.
How To Use Texturizing Spray for Fine Hair
Using texturizing spray for fine hair is quite simple, but there are a few key steps to keep in mind to get the best results:
1. Start with clean, dry hair
Texturizing spray works best on hair that isn't weighed down by excess oils or products. So, make sure to wash and dry your hair before using the spray.
2. Shake the bottle well
Texturizing spray contains ingredients that can settle at the bottom, so it's important to give it a good shake before use.
3. Apply it from 6 inches away
Hold the bottle about 6 inches away from your hair and spray it evenly throughout your strands. Be careful not to spray too much in one area, as this can create a sticky or greasy texture.
4. Use your fingers to tousle and scrunch your hair
The spray is designed to add texture and volume, so use your fingers to work it through your hair and create the desired effect.
5. Use a hot tool for extra definition
If you want extra hold or definition, you can use a curling iron or other styling tools after applying the texturizing spray. However, be careful not to overload your hair with too many products, as this can weigh it down.
Steps for Getting Instant Volume from your Texturizing Spray
- Blow-dry your hair upside down while damp. This is a classic trick for adding volume to fine hair. Use a round brush to lift your hair at the roots and blow-dry it upside down. This will help create lift and fullness.
- Apply the texturizing spray. Hold the bottle about 6 inches away from your hair and spray it evenly throughout your strands. Be sure to focus on the roots and mid-lengths of your hair, as this is where you want to create the most volume.
- Flip your head back up and tousle your hair. Use your fingers to scrunch and tousle your hair, creating the desired texture and volume.
- You can also apply a volumizing mousse or foam. This will help add even more volume to your hair, creating a strong base for the texturizing spray to work on.
Do You Use Texturizing Spray on Wet or Dry Hair?
Texturizing spray works best on dry hair to create texture and volume. It also absorbs more easily into dry hair and becomes easier to work with since you can see the volume and texture you're creating.
That being said, you can try to use texturizing spray on wet hair before blow drying. This can give you a polished look with some extra hold.
Pay attention though to the directions on your specific texturizing spray a some are meant to used exclusively on dry hair.
Do You Use Texturizing Spray Before Or After Curling?
It's generally best to use texturizing spray BEFORE curling your hair when your hair is dry. Applying texturizing spray to your hair before curling can help create a strong base for your curls to hold onto, while also adding volume and texture to your hair.
When I want my hairstyle to really last, I use texturizing spray before I curl and after when my hair is completely finished. These light layers of texturizing spray give my hair hold without feeling sticky and crunchy.
