Battle of the texture sprays / Product Review

Hey Guys,
I thought I'd do something a little different for a review this week. I recently picked up two products that do the same job so I thought I would review them together and compare them.

The first product I got was the VO5 give me texture spray. I was really excited to try this as I had been looking for a texture spray to give me the beach look for all those lazy hair days but I was very disappointed it is very wet rather then a spray so when you dispense some a lot of product is in a small area and maybe I haven't worked out what works best, if it should be brushed or tousled but either way it really didn't work for my hair. my hair is very fine so I know a lot of products don't work but either way it gave a bit of volume at the top but it just makes my hair look a bit lifeless and wet as if I have just come out of the shower.
The next product I tried is the L'Oreal matt & messy shine free salt spray. already from the title I knew this was more what I was looking for as it claims to be shine free and it is a salt spray which is perfect for beach hair. This is perfect exactly what I was after. I just spritz it a few times at my roots then in the bulk of my hair, after massaging it in it really gives great volume and texture to the hair, it is lasts a long time so it kind of works as a hair spray too. I was this most days after I have curled my hair to make the curls more naturel or when I have five minutes to get ready I just spray a bit of this on and ruffle it in and I am good to go. I really recommend this.

So between these two the L'Oreal one is the clear winner. Let me know in the comments what you thought of these products or what your favourite texturizing spray is for me to try in the future. I hope you enjoyed this post! Thanks!
Love Charlotte

  1. Great review post :) Sorry to hear VO5 didn't work for you. I was interested to know what you thought as I've found it doesn't work for me either and comes across as very cheap to me :( I've found for texture and volume that lasts you need to splash out. Will have to try your l'oreal product! Sounds really good :) xoxo

    1. Thank you I was thinking about doing this as a series although I don't usually buy two of the same thing!! Ah right I am glad it is not just me as I normally love the brand yeah I agree! I need to try the Charles Worthington one next as loads of big YouTuber's say its their favourite and its a dude for that £30 Oribe one! Let me know what you think! xoxo
