We love a perfectly undone hairstyle. You know what we mean by “perfectly undone,” right? It’s a look that’s volumized and defined, yet tousled and lived-in—like the kind popularized by off-duty models and the French.
As any hairstylist will tell you, it comes down to using the right products, and the right technique. While the right technique might take some time and practice to master, the right products come easier. In this case, the right product is a texturizing spray. “A texturizing spray is exactly what it sounds like,” says Jamila Powell, founder of Naturally Drenched and owner of Maggie Rose Salon. “The purpose of a texturizing spray is to add texture, volume, and support to your hair to make it easier for you to style. It’s a lightweight spray that you can apply from the root to the ends of your hair. The product is great to use as a refresh for second or third-day hair because it will absorb excess oil, similar to dry shampoo.”
The best part is that texturizing spray can benefit every hair type and texture. “If you have thin-to-flat hair, a texturizing spray would help your hair have some extra hold when trying to style it and help the style last longer,” Powell explains. “If your hair is naturally curly or wavy, a texturizing spray is a great alternative to using hairspray to seal in the style without dealing with the stiffness or crunchiness that hairspray can leave behind.”
Trust us when we tell you that this stuff is the key to effortless-looking hair. After all, there’s a reason hairstylists always keep a texturizing spray in their kit… Keep scrolling to see the 11 best texturizing sprays to shop now (according to hairstylists and editors).
