Black hair spray will take your look to the next level.

Colorful hair sprays can be a little bit daunting to use if you’ve never tried them before. It’s hard to know how much is too much and how to keep your hair looking natural even through such a strong dose of temporary color. Black hair spray in particular can seem a little challenging. But the truth is, it’s super easy to use.

Start with Clean Hair

First things first, start off with clean hair. We suggest using a shampoo and conditioner duo built to moisturize as temporary hair sprays can sometimes be drying. We love Nexxus Hydra-Light Weightless Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner. These products are formulated to moisturize your strands and leave them feeling extra healthy and soft.


While your hair is still damp, brush out your strands to get rid of any knots. We suggest first spritzing your hair with Bed Head by TIGI Beach Freak Moisturizing Detangler Spray and then carefully combing through for a smooth, clean and tangle-free slate.

Add in the Black Hairspray

Once your hair is dry (either air dried or blown out), you can start with the black hair spray. Remember that less is more and you can always add more coats as you go. Start off with one even layer, let it dry and build from there. If layering hairspray isn’t the ting for you, then the next best solution is a black root concealer spray. TRESemmé Root Touch-Up Spray For Black Hair will give you the perfect dispersion of black color to your hair. Filling in your roots with a black spray will create a fuller effect on your hairstyle and bump up your look.
