Don't settle for limp locks. Give your hair the boost it deserves by using a thickening spray. Thickening sprays give extra life to thin hair and provide that volume that you've been longing for. If you've never tried a thickening spray before, do your research so you get the most for your money and end up with one that'll give you the best results.
Bumble and Bumble Thickening Hairspray
Bumble and Bumble Thickening Hairspray has a huge fan base. It was voted "Allure" magazine's Reader's Choice in 2005, 2006, 2008, 2009 and 2010. Spritz it on your locks to hold your style in place and create volume. It lets off a light fruity fragrance. Writing in "Allure," Kayleigh Donahue notes that Bumble and Bumble doesn't leave your hair sticky like other sprays.
Samy Fat Hair 0 Calories Thickening Spray
Samy Fat Hair 0 Calories Thickening Spray comes highly recommended by "Allure" too. The spray fattens up each strand of hair, creating an overall voluminous coif. Spray this one on damp hair before blow-drying to get maximum results. Once your hair is dry, you're left with lots of body and tresses that are still light, airy and super simple to manage, says Lisa Cohen Lee, explaining the spray's appeal in "Allure."
Phyto Phytovolume Actif Maximizing Volume Spray
Winning "InStyle" magazine's Best of Beauty award in 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2011, Phyto Phytovolume Actif Maximizing Volume Spray packs a punch. The spray gives your limp locks lots of volume without drying them out. So, don't worry about swapping out full-bodied hair for conditioned hair. Your hair will be just as healthy, just much more voluminous, says Melissa Bridgers of New York City's OC61 salon.
