Matte Pomade, £16.50 | Ouai

Best For: Long-Lasting Hold 

This product’s gritty texture works well when it comes to adding instant definition to the lengths and ends of your hair. A mixture of kaolin clay and beeswax boosts volume and defines waves, creating a piece-y finish with a strong hold. Infused with amino acids and keratin, every strand feels deeply nourished and protected. Blend a small amount of product into the ends of your hair, scrunching and shaping as you go. The best bit? The Italian lemon and jasmine scent is seriously addictive.

Dry Texture Spray, £45 | Oribe

Best For: Luxe Option 

A super fine mist, this texture spray both absorbs excess oils and adds volume to the hair. Similar to a dry shampoo, this patented formula incorporates colour and UV protective elements too, without ever feeling heavy, greasy or leaving behind any visible white residue. Simply spray into the roots to add lift to the areas in need of a little extra body.

Volumising Hair Mist, £29 | Larry King

Best For: Lightweight Feel

This fine mist won’t deposit the tell-tale crunch and stiffness often associated with texturising sprays. Scenting hair with rosemary, pine needles, lavender and jasmine, it also adds body, shape and volume. Simply disperse the colourless formula throughout the roots and lengths of damp or dry hair to achieve subtle definition throughout the mid-lengths and ends.

APRES SEXE Texture Spray, £9 | Andrew Fitzsimons

Best For: Affordable Option

This vegan and cruelty free spray will give you that beachy, undone look, all while keeping the hair feeling silky smooth. With a touchable hold, the product freshens up strands that have lost their body in between washes. Simply hold the spray 30cm away from dry hair and mist in, just like a hairspray, through the roots and lengths. We love green, floral and woody scent.

Sea Spray, £19 | VERB

Best For: Natural Option

Using natural sea salt and coconut water, this ‘sea spray’ adds subtle texture to the lengths of your hair. Achieving a more natural, soft to-the-touch wave, this is best for those with finer hair given its lightweight feel. Seaweed extract and kelp remove excess oils while simultaneously hydrating parched strands. Sweet almond fruit extract then seals in this added moisture, while also offering protection from UV rays.

Cool Girl Texture Mist, £25 | Sam McKnight

Best For: Light Texture 

The clue is in the name here. Working best when hair needs a subtle lift, the product creates but the perfect undone finish once it’s misted through and been given a good scrunch. With a fresh, botanical scent, this texturiser not only wakes up tired-looking hair, it also freshens things up – ideal for tiding things over in between washes.

Zhoosh Foam, £14 | Hershesons

Best For: Volume 

This mousse-formula is fast absorbing to help you achieve the ultimate bouncy blow-dried look. Scrunch the foam into wet hair before styling hair with a hairdryer as normal. The product builds body as the hair dries – without any of the tell-tale thickness, heaviness or crunchiness associated with mousses of old. If you’re lucky enough to have natural curls, this will make them look their best.

Dreamhouse Cold-Pressed Watermelon Wave Spray 3, £27 | R+Co

Best For: Beachy Waves

R+Co is becoming one of our favourite haircare brands. Using a 100% vegan, cruelty-free, gluten-free and colour-safe formulation, this spray goes further than just adding texture. Using cold-pressed watermelon as its hero ingredient, it adds impressive shine to strands, as well as a decent dose of UV protection. Spritz the product through the lengths of the hair, allowing it to dry naturally for a beachy finish.
