If You Want to Know More:
Picture a supermodel's bouncy, beachy waves as she walks the runway. Yes, she used a styling tool for the waves, but the sexy, lived-in look is nine times out of 10 achieved with—surprise!—a good texture spray. It's that effortless, "I woke up like this (but not really)" effect that makes men and women alike absolutely swoon. This spray gives you that.
Not only does it help absorb oil (not as much as a dry shampoo, but enough; use it in conjunction with dry shampoo when your hair is extra oily) and add volume and texture to strands thanks to rice starch, but it also fights frizz with the addition of zeolite, a negatively charged mineral that helps keep hair tame. Other winning attributes: it boasts the brand's signature ingredient, nutrient-rich sea buckthorn berry that moisturizes hair while improving its elasticity, as well as its addictive signature scent, which has developed a cult-following in itself. Plus, it doesn't leave your locks stiff or covered in that waxy-like residue that makes you feel like you need to wash your hair.
Plus, how pretty is the bottle? You may be thinking, "I feel like I've seen this product before." Well, you probably have, but it recently experienced a major makeover, complete with a new name and a fresh look as part of the brand's packaging update, which helps better differentiate between its products. Now you'll no longer be confused when you go to reach for your amika texture spray and grab your dry conditioner instead. (I've made that mistake too many times.)
To use, spray it on dry hair the way you would dry shampoo for a volume boost at the roots, but you can also spritz it in your lengths to add some grit and texture. It works especially well on layers, as it helps define the ends for that piecey look you often see on Hollywood A-listers. I also like to spray it on before creating a loose braid because it makes my braid hold better while also giving it that perfectly imperfect finish. Trust me, your beauty arsenal needs this multitasker.
