5 Best Hairsprays To Instantly Give Your Hair More Volume

By  | 

Just like dry shampoo, hairspray has a permanent spot on my bathroom shelf. For years, I refrained from using any because of the damage it apparently causes. But when used correctly and in the right amount, it’s a godsend!

Think about it. You don’t have to worry about bits of hair flying out of your neat ponytail. A good enough spritz will maintain your elaborate hairdo all day long.

Of course, there are different kinds of sprays for different needs. While some are just for hold or shine, there are a few that are perfect for creating volume.

When your hair is too silky and limp to hold a style, or it’s just a day or 2 old and is lacking that bounce, these babies will perk your hairdo right up — sometimes it feels like magic.

So we picked out the best volumising hairsprays available in the market today.

Batiste OOMPH My Locks XXL Volume Spray (Rs 749)

Most women have problems with volume when they have 2-day old hair. So wouldn’t it be amazing when one product did both — clean your hair AND give you that superhuman volume? I used this when my hair was 2 days old and lacking that fullness I wanted.

What you need to do is backcomb the section you want to add volume to, and then spray this baby to lock it in. Once you smoothen it down, you’re going to see volume like nothing you’ve ever seen before!

L’Oréal Elnett Satin Hairspray (Rs 1,856)

You can go ahead and call this the mother of all hairsprays. L’Oréal’s Elnett has been around for years, and every single hair professional uses it on the regular. It has the greatest hold but doesn’t harden your hair to make it crispy.

You can easily comb through it once you’ve applied this and there’s a trick to have it create volume. Curl you hair with a curling iron and, once you’re done, open out those curls to make waves. Lift sections and spray this underneath the sections. You can expect to stop traffic once this hairdo is in place.

BBlunt Blown Away Volumizing Leave-In Spray (Rs 550)

While all the other sprays work best on dry, styled hair, this one is for when your hair is wet. Think of it as a root lifting spray. Once you’ve applied it evenly to your roots, it manages to lift your hair as it dries, creating that bouncy volume.

The best part is that it works for both curly and straight hair, leaving you with that natural looking fullness, straight from the root.

TIGI Bedhead Superstar Queen For A Day Thickening Spray (Rs 1,797)

What a volumising spray does is basically create texture. So for people with fine hair, where styles never stay longer than 15 minutes, the right dose of hairspray is the answer.

What this spray does is create a kind of plumping effect on your hair. So everything looks fuller and there’s enough grit on your locks to actually hold a style. So if you have super fine hair, this is your key to volume.

Toni & Guy Sea Salt Texturising Spray (Rs 1,050)

Lets just say that taking a dip in the sea is the best kind of natural volume your hair can get. Once dried, you hair forms those effortless beachy waves we generally use hot tools to replicate at home — and even then it doesn’t feel the same.

Toni & Guy’s Sea Salt Spray does the job for you, right at home! Once you’ve dried your hair, depending on your hair type, curl it or roughly add some waves with your hair iron. Once that’s done, just spritz this along evenly and it will look like you live at the beach.
