If like me, you haven't been blessed by the voluminous hair goddesses with a thick mane of gorgeous hair, you're going to want to keep reading this post...

My hair strands are very fine and have a tendency to break easily, so even after i've blow-dried my hair you can guarantee an hour later my hair will be flat against my head again. I've tried everything from having layers cut in, to using countless "volumising" mousse products, to backcombing (I know, not good!) all with very mediocre results. I'm also trying to avoid using heat on my hair in an attempt to make it as healthy-looking as possible, so getting any sort of volume in there is a challenge!

However, i'm finding more and more that the secret to my hair is not to bombard it with volumising products as soon as i've washed my hair...

Recently I finished up the Oribe Dry Texturising Spray that i've had since Christmas, and as much as I loved the lightweight feel and finish of the Oribe spray, I was keen to see if I could find a slightly cheaper alternative as £38.00 is quite expensive for a texturising spray in my opinion.

I then started hearing the hype about the Charles Worthington Volume & Bounce Texturising Spray, so needless to say the next day I was roaming the aisles of Boots looking for it and at just £6.99 I couldn't say no to giving it a whirl.

The product is a very fine spray and feels lightweight in the hair. It adds volume from the roots in an instant and is perfect if you have limp, lacklustre hair at times like me. I wash my hair in the morning which can be a nightmare for styling as it makes it so soft, but this product gives your hair instant texture and that 'second day hair' feeling, so that you can create any hairstyle quickly and with ease. I also like to spray a little of this into the mid-lengths and ends of my hair when my hair is up - gives an average ponytail that edgy, effortless, yet glamorous look. It also has incredible staying power and washes out easily. Initially, I was a little concerned this product would cause some pulling and tugging when I tried to brush my hair after I'd applied it, but that was actually not a problem. As with any dry spray product, just be gentle when combing/brushing through it.

If you can get your hands on this product, I highly recommend it. Whether it's an up-do or down straight, this product will be able to add that extra bit of volume to any hairstyle and won't let you down halfway through the day. Plus, the bottle is pink...What's not to love?!


  1. This looks great! I have wanted to try the Oribe spray for ages but very put off by the price so this would be a great alternative! xx

    1. Yeah definitely, a couple of YouTubers have actually said they prefer the Charles Worthington one over the Oribe! xx
