I consider myself lucky to have hair that straightens fairly effortlessly, however once straightened, it tends to just fall flat. I’d been looking for a product that would provide volume and texture without weighing my hair down or making it look greasy. A few months ago, I purchased Bumble and bumble’s “Thickening Dryspun Finish” styling product. According to the Sephora website, this product claims to create “instant fullness and texture to spin hair into an airy silhouette. Raw silk powders with light-holding polymers adhere instantly for a softly interlaced texture to make hair look weightless and effortlessly full—and keep it that way”. To use this product, you simply spray it in your hair similar to a hairspray, and then tousle with your fingertips. The truth is, I love this product (especially its scent), however what’s not so loveable, is that it hits your wallet hard at $37.00 for a 4oz bottle.
I was excited to see that Garnier Fructis Style has recently come out with a similar dry-touch finishing product, “De-Constructed Texture Tease”. I tested it out, and let me tell you, the results are extremely similar. It doesn’t have the musky scent that I love about the Bumble and bumble spray (however it does have a pleasant smell), but can we talk about how it is less than 1/5th of the price at just $6.99 per 3.8oz bottle?!
Both products use a similar technology, and I found they both lasted the same amount of time (you may need to touch-up your hair mid-day). This product is not only great for the days you wear your hair down, but also for when you’re looking to create voluminous ponytails and updo’s. Tried either of these products? Let me know in the comments below!
