Birchbox Breakdown

This spray gives you the perfect bombshell blowout by protecting, nourishing, smoothing, and volumizing hair. This spray is formulated with obliphica (sea buckthorn berry) oil, which offers a laundry list of powerful ingredients: antioxidants, vitamins, and omega fatty acids. Together, they moisturize and strengthen, repair split ends, enhance shine, and restore hair’s natural balance. Plus, the spray is free of parabens and artificial colors. We apply it to damp strands before blow-drying to provide heat protection, texture, and lift. It also serves as a light hold mist for dry hair and can facilitate restyling—and works on all hair types, including color-treated hair.

How to Use

Divide damp hair into sections, and spray from roots to ends before blow-drying. The spray can also be used on dry hair.

Water/eau (aqua), octylacrylamide/acrylates/butylaminoethyl methacrylate copolymer, hippophae rhamnoides (sea buckthorn) seed oil, panthenol (vitamin b5), glycerin, peg-12 dimethicone, fragrance (parfum), aminomethyl propanol, benzophenone-4, propylene glycol, imidazolidinyl urea, methylisothiazolinone, yellow 5 [ci 19140], blue 1 [ci 42090], butylphenyl methylproponial, limonene, hydroxyisohexyl 3-cyclohexene, carboxaldehyde, hydroxycitronellal, citronellol, coumarin.

Works Best on Long Tresses

I have a pixie cut and found that this made my hair a little bit crunchy. I may have used to much. But I loved the smell of this product. It worked very well on my mom and my sister's long hair. My mom haa very long fine hair with a not too thick and not too thin texture and my sister has lots of thick curly sometimes fuzzy hair. It worked well for both of them!

Blowout what now?

I had never heard of such a thing before I got this product in my Birchbox. Honestly, it sort of just sat in my medicine cabinet for a couple weeks. I gave it a try and at first I was confused. I thought it was like a hair spray that didn't work, I thought it was a plumping spray that didn't work. Then I used it for its actual application (after consulting a youtube video) and I realized that this stuff works wonders! I now use it all the time. I love the smell of this stuff, its an understated floral scent. I highly recommend this product.

Amazing stuff! that sums it up

Amazing stuff! It does as described, smooths and yet bouncy. I had some nice bounce/volume with this spray. Absolutely love it! I did notice it did dry my hair out just a little that would be the only complaint, but over all an amazing product.

This is a great spray

While I have only used it on wet hair prior to styling, it can be used on dry hair as well to add texture and lift. It also works on color-treated hair, which I have. I am very impressed with this product and could use it every day.

Works great as a root lifter
Purchased

I purchased the full size, and also purchased this small size to use for travel. This product works great for me as a root lifter, and gives good texture as well. Smells good too!
I don't use it on the lengths of my hair however, as it doesn't make my hair feel smooth or soft.

Miracle!

The sample of this product has lasted me several weeks of use. A little bit goes a long way with this spray that adds great volume and shine. It doesn't make hair oily or dry it out. I will definitely be purchasing this when it is restocked.

Good stuff

Would purchase this in the future. I love the smell and the volume this gives my hair. I actually used it as a finishing spray after I curled my hair. I scrunched it through and it left my hair bouncy and light weight all day. I will try it as a blowout spray my next shampoo.
