Charles Worthington Volume & Bounce Texturising Spray





BACK COMB FREE?

I haven't actually noticed products like this until it appeared on my Blogger dashboard and the Twitter raves. Anything that relates to having big hair, I'm there purchasing it. This isn't a hairspray like product. It's a dry spray without leaving a sheen. This promises giving big hair look without the back combing damage.

I love big, big hair so I have high expectations for this. I have tested this with both back combed and flat hair. On flat hair, I have sprayed it onto the roots on freshly washed and second day hair, and ruffled it in. It gave me a natural looking volume but not as big or high as I had hoped or liked. Unfortunately the volume didn't last and my hair was flat after a few hours. Disappointed.

As with back combing my hair first then spraying this, it gave me better results. Longer lasting volume however it isn't exactly back comb free. I prefer using this to set my teasing areas rather than the usual Tresemme freeze hold hairspray. I do love to spray this lightly and quickly on my hair then scrunch it to give more texture in general, meaning it'll work great on curled, wavy hair.

This doesn't leave the hair feeling crispy, sticky, a white cast or a sheen however it is drying. With a quick, dry formula, you are needing to work fast. Use too much and it feels like a hairspray. This smelt like your typical hairspray but with a hint of fruity perfume scent. For £6.99, I would repurchase it again but it is too over hyped.

  4. My hair loves to be straight so I've never tried any products that add volume. Sounds like this one might be worth a look!

  5. That's a shame that it didn't have the effect you wanted. John Frieda Luxurious Volume is good for adding body and doesn't dry the hair out.

  27. I really don't like hair sprays that leave the hair feeling stiff and plastic so this is a really good find :)

  28. Aw, too bad it didn't last as long as expected. I stay away from volumizing products since my hair is thick enough and I actually want it flatter!

  29. I tried quite a lot products like this and my hair do not want to play ball... maybe I need an industrial strength or something ...
