THE BEST: Hair Texturizing Products!

Hair texturisers are all the rage at the moment with many gal’s wanting effortlessly, thick, voluminous locks.  There have been loads of texturizing products popping up on the market in the last year and so I thought I’d pop the ones I own together into a post for comparison!

VO5 Give Me Texture Instant Oomph Powder: This is an odd little product; a powder which almost turns to liquid once you touch it, before adding a powdered texture.  I sprinkle this into my roots and then massage in for a bit of volume.  It’s okay, smells great, but does feel rather odd and takes getting used to.

VO5 Plump Me Up Dry Shampoo: As well as being a great texturizer, this also doubles up as a dry shampoo which I adore.  Again, as with all VO5 products this smells incredible.  

VO5 Plump Me Up Dry Backcomb Spray: If your hair is limp and needs some more volume without the damaging action of backcombing, this is for you!  Smells great and once worked into the roots it does what it says on the tin.

L’Oreal #TXT Volume Supersizing Spray: I’m going to say now this is my favourite out of the bunch.  It’s the newest out of the lot but I’ve found it does the best job of adding height and volume to my thick and heavy hair.  After spraying underneath sections of my roots, I massage this in for a great bed-head look.  Also smells great - would repurchase over and over.

Bumble & Bumble Thickening Dry Spun Finish:  You can see my full review of this product here!  I wasn’t too keen on it at first as I wasn’t sure it did anything much for my hair but I do like this spray.

TRESemme Texture Style Divine Definition Spray: I've used TRESemme for years but mainly for their shampoo and conditioners which are super affordable, smell so good and do a good job of cleaning and conditioning my hair.  I think this was one of the first styling products I'd used from TRESemme and it's actually quite good!  It's really similar to the VO5 Dry Backcomb spray but with a different scent.  You wouldn't need them both.

TRESemme Texture Style Backcomb Dust: Again, this is really similar to the VO5 Oomph powder, sprinkle into roots, massage and scrunch and you are left with texture and volume to play around with.  Great for updos.

There we have it.  As I said, quite a few of these products are similar to each other (especially the Unilever brands).  My favourite by far is the L'Oreal Volume Spray for it's ability to add volume and texture into my long hair without leaving it feeling and looking dirty - it's super affordable too.

What are your favourite texturising sprays?  




  1. need to try some of these as my hair is so heavy it just gets weighed down. really want to try the Oribe one too but these drugstore ones first :D thanks for sharing Katie :)


  2. I've been using the L'Oreal #TXT Volumising Spray recently which I really like. I also have a few of those hair powders that you shake in at your roots from various brands which I love. Really interested in trying the V05 Backcombing spray and the TRESemme Definition Spray.

  3. I bought the L’Oreal #TXT Volume Supersizing Spray, but I just don't think that it does much for my hair. Maybe I'm just not using it correctly, I'll use it in the same way you do and hope for the best! xxxx

  4. My favourite is Charles Worthington's Volume & Bounce. These all look great. Definitely wanna try the L'Oreal!

  5. I don't tend to go for texturising sprays or powders because I think they make my hair feel claggy and dirty! The loreal one sounds good though, and so does the dry shampoo vo5 product. Love the review Katie, big fan!! xxxx


  6. I love the idea of volumising or texture sprays. And I love comparison posts like this. Thanks for this :) I will make sure to try out one of these at some point.

  7. I've been all about texture and volume so to see this line up (and that it's affordable) is just wonderful! I don't know if the L'Oreal TXT spray is available in the US yet but I'm hoping it will be soon!
    Lovely Notions

  8. I really want to try the L'Oreal spray and the VO5 dry shampoo. My hair is short and fine but it doesn't retain volume. i can't believe I've never tried anything other than dry shampoo on it.

  9. Thanks for sharing this list Katie! I'm gonna look for these products now :)

  10. ooh think I'm going to give the L'Oreal one a go; I tried the VO5 give me texture tousled style spray before and wasn't that impressed with it to be honest!

  12. I love all these products! Check out my blog please http://gkatee.blogspot.co.uk/

  13. I love the L'Oreal #TXT volumising spray, but apparently Umberto Gianinni do 'Back comb in a bottle' which literally makes your hair look like you've back combed it.

    Don't be afraid to pop over and say hi>>> www.funsizeblogger.blogspot.co.uk

  17. O wow what a selection! I was planning a trip to Boots to pick some up and this has help immensely! Thanks Katie :)


  18. I LOVE the Bumble & Bumble spray! I had my hair done (by a stylist who does Cheryl Cole's hair, yuss!) for a plus size modelling taster day and it gave my hair body like never before. It costs a bloody bomb and she used loads of it but my hair looked so good I've gotta have some in my life. x x

  19. I needed this post haha, I've been searching for a volume product for ages, defo going to try out the l'oreal one, thanks :)

  22. I prefer to use the loreal super dust, but i too love the v05 mousse


  23. Have you tried the Charles Worthington dry texturising spray? I'd like to know how it compares to the L'Oreal one :) xx

  24. Have you tried the Charles Worthington dry texturising spray? I'd like to know how it compares to the L'Oreal one :) xx

  25. Thanks for sharing this! Haven't really been too lucky for texturizing products; they either make my hair feel horrible or do nothing :/
    I haven't tried any of these products you've listed so I might give them a go!

  26. I'm so fussy with texture sprays, I hate the way most of them feel & they make my hair feel dirty! The Vo5 dry shampoo sounds lovely though.

  30. I've had my eye on the L'Oreal #TXT one since it came out and as it's your favourite and is so reasonably priced I think I may have to go for that one :)
