Texturising products are a great way to add volume and texture to lank limp locks. How much do you know about these magical sprays, powders and pastes?
Texturising spray is very different from a normal hairspray in that its principal purpose isn't to hold your hairstyle in place, but rather to build volume and texture. If you want to bring out the natural tousled texture through the lengths of your hair (without resorting to a mid winter swim in the ocean) a texturising spray is the next best thing. L'Oréal Professionnel's mineral powder fixing hairspray is our stylists' go-to texturising spray. The light spray builds texture and volume with a matte effect but without the rough touch.
Hair powders - which are usually called texturising or mattifying powder - are another way to achieve amped up volume and texture in limp locks. The product itself is usually a fine, white ground powder, and a small amount goes a long way. It's usually recommended that you use hair powder on dry hair. You can either apply a texturising powder just to your roots or all over your head, depending on how much volume you want and where you want it. You can also take advantage of the texturising benefits of a powder without adding huge volume to your whole head. For shorter hair, apply the powder lightly to the ends of your hair to achieve a piecey tousled look. by L'Oréal Professionnel is our pick for super hair texture as and when you need it.
A texturizing paste is the most portable of our texturising products, and usually comes in small tub, perfect for travel. This is often the choice for men who want to add some rough texture with hold to their (typically) shorter locks, and is applied through either towel-dried or dry hair. Our favourite wax-paste at the moment is L'Oréal Professionnel's - it creates body, dramatic definition and a powerful hold, with a matte finish.
So which texturizing product will become your new hair pal?
