When to Dry Shampoo, Texture Spray and Thickening Spray for Volume

When it comes to the world of hair care, product can be an overwhelming and confusing decision. We are bombarded by advertisements, commercials, our friends’ recommendations, and aisles and aisles of haircare at the grocery story. Well look no further because we’re here to break down what products are essential and why!

So let’s talk volume. This seems to be every girl’s most serious hair dilemma. Hairstylists everywhere are constantly being asked the same questions…How do I create body in my hair without it feeling sticky? How can I ensure my style will last all day AND all night? And how am I supposed to know what product to use for what?

We talked to industry expert and celebrity hairstylist Harry Josh about product when it comes to creating texture, body, volume, and movement; because nothing’s worse than attempting to achieve Victoria’s Secret waves and ending up with hair like the girl in The Ring.

 bumble and bumble thickening spray

“This is great for women with fine to medium textured hair (or even thicker hair if you really need the extra hold). The spray is applied to the hair pre-blowdry to help amp up a blowout and help achieve extra shape. It basically allows you to develop extra definition and the hair reacts better to holding the shape. I like Bumble and bumble Thickening Spray.”



klorane dry shampoo 

“Amazing on all hair types and can be used in multiple ways. It’s applied to dry hair. To start, it sucks up oil and extends life to day-old or multiple days-old hair. It also helps add lift, specifically at the roots. I would recommend it for women with finer hair as other styling products sometimes can leave a residue which can make hair look greasy. I like Klorane’s dry shampoo but depending on whether you’re a blonde or a brunette you should test out the formula. Some formulas can read very white on dark hair.”

“This is also applied to dry hair. This helps hair achieve body and a messy, lived in texture. Think models off duty or that sexy bed head. It’s a great tool, again, for women with finer hair to get body and texture for hair that otherwise looks limp, straight and boring. My favorite is from Serge Normant.”
