The Spray that Whips Hair into Shape
What Thickening Hairspray Does
Think of Thickening Hairspray like the starch youd use when ironing a shirt: It helps your style to hold it shape. Wheat protein, a key ingredient, bulks up strands from root to tip, while polymers create a lightweight hold and lanolin keeps hair moisturized and manageable. The spray also acts as a heat protectant to shield hair from damage by blow dryers and styling tools.
Who Thickening Hairspray Is For
Fine-haired types will love the body this spray creates, but those with thicker texture can also benefit from using it as a foundation for straight, wavy, or curly styles. If you want to play up your natural wave, fatten up limp hair, or add staying power to your blowout, thickening hairspray is for you.
How to Use Thickening Hairspray
For a sleek blowout...
Start by misting wet hair with a primer like Bumble and bumbles Prep, which gives hair a uniform porosity to help products distribute more evenly. Next, apply Thickening Hairspray in sections from roots to midlengths or ends, working it through the hair using a comb or your fingers. From here, style your hair as you normally wouldthe Thickening Spray will help lock in the look you create. Finish by blasting your roots with Dryspun Finish (to bulk up fine hair) or a pump of Hairdressers Invisible Oil (to nourish dry or coarse hair).
To create bouncy curls or waves...
Apply Thickening Spray to damp hair, working it through from roots to ends. For extra control, add a curl cream like Bumble and bumbles Curl Conscious Defining Creme. Coax your hair into perfect curls by coiling one-inch pieces around your forefinger, or sculpt loose waves by twisting hair away from your face into sections. The Thickening Spray will help hair hold its shape as it dries. If you blow-dry, use a diffuser attachment to create bouncy, frizz-free texture.
To add oomph to air-dried styles...
Heat-styling helps Thickening Spray expand fine strands, but it can also be used to add texture to air-dried hair. Mist it on wet hair and scrunch with your fingers to bring out your natural waves, or use it on damp hair that you braid before going to bedyoull wake up with beachy body.
