This Is the Ultimate Guide to Texturizing Products

Your Gateway Texturizer

Oribe Texturizing Spray

If hair texturizer isn’t already a part of your hair care routine-it should be. You may be asking yourself: “Do I really need yet another product?” The answer is: Yes! Especially if we’re talking about hair texturizer. The right texturizer can give your hair volume and body without extensions, improve your hair’s natural texture and help you eliminate heat tools all together. This will save your hair from damage  and may also save you money in the long run because hair extensions are costly and can cause damage and breakage to your hair. Before we get into which products are the best on the market-let’s take a look at the five main types of hair texturizers.

For hair texturizer novices, Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray is the perfect gateway product. This texturizer has built up a cult following for its ability to separate curls, give limp strands life and add the perfect amount of grit to fine hair. It works with almost every hair type, and although it’s not the cheapest product on the market, you definitely get your money’s worth.

Beach Waves on a Budget

Body and Movement
