This spray is meant to make your hair look beachy, similar to Bumble and Bumble surf spray. Wella suggests you 'free the inner wild side of your hair' by spritzing this texturizing spray into your dry hair near the roots, then scrunching your hair and allowing it to dry. I know my own hair type, and the instructions sounded a bit silly to me. I have naturally straight hair. If I allow my hair to dry, it will dry straight. I know that if I add product like this, or anything branded as 'texturizing' to my dry hair, it will leave my hair looking chunky, crusty and not at all beachy! I figured if I followed Wella's instructions my hair would end up needing another wash ASAP, so I devised my own set of plans to make this texturizing spray work for my hair type!
What I did was: wash my hair and then blow dry it to partial dryness, I would say it was about 65% dry. Then I sprayed generous amounts of Wella's Ocean Spritz into my hair- everywhere! It has a nice, salon-y scent to it. After I spritzed my entire head in the product, I put it loosely into a bun and fastened it with a clip rather than an elastic. I made sure to give myself lots of volume in my roots while tying my hair up. I let it dry like that for 1-2 hours and then took the clip out.
When I took the clip out, my hair fell down and looked like this:
What do you think? Like the look, or do you think I should stick to straight hair? Do any of you use texturizing sprays to get beach hair? I would love to hear your tips for using these products.
