Texturizing Spray: What It Is and How to Use It

What is a texturizing spray?

Simply put, a texturizing spray adds texture to your hair via certain mattifying agents. It’s perfect for creating styles that look effortless, tousled, messy or undone. Dry shampoo is often mistaken for a texturizing spray; however, a dry shampoo is technically for absorbing excess oil on your hair and scalp in between hair washes. If you’re looking for a true texturizing spray, it’s best to look for products that indicate that they are such. For instance, our favorite is Suave Professionals Sea Mineral Infusion Texturizing Sea Salt Spray. This spray enhances waves and provides 24-hour body and texture. Here are a few ways you can use this texturizing spray on your hair:

Whether you have tight curls or loose waves, use this spray to add texture and to refresh your style.

4 Ways to Use A Texturizing Spray

1. Create beach waves. 

Use it to create beachy waves. Simply spray throughout dry or damp locks, then use your hands to scrunch hair upwards. If your hair is super wet, you can use a diffuser to help speed up the drying process.

2. Revive bounce and add body to curly hair. 

We don’t think anyone loves limp curls! If you have naturally curly hair, you can use this spray to revive your look. A few spritzes of this texturizing spray throughout your curls helps provide your hair with long-lasting body. To use, dampen your hair just a bit, spray the product throughout your hair, crunch with your hands and air-dry or diffuse.

3. Use it for braid-out styles.

We love the chic and effortless look that braids create, but braids can also be used to create effortless looking waves. If you want to enhance the texture of your waves, spray on your texturizing spray first, and then braid your hair. Allow the hair to dry before undoing your braid.

4. Use it to add volume to fine hair. 

Since texturizing sprays do help with giving your hair body, this is ideal for those with finer hair types. If you want to try your hand at styles like beach waves but don’t have the right products for your hair type to create the look, this is where a texturizing spray comes in. Spritz it onto damp hair, twist and release for full-bodied waves.
