Glossy, polished, and refined hair will always have a place in our hearts, but sometimes we’re in the mood to ditch our flat iron and emphasize the natural wave or curl our hair already has —and this effortless, just-woke-up look is best achieved with texture-boosting products. Whether you’re in the mood for laidback beach waves or a messy bedhead vibe, texturizing sprays are key.  From creams to sprays and powders, adding some grit and texture to your locks gives you a natural, undone appeal that you can’t quite achieve with your trusty hair straightener or curling iron.

A good texturizing product will boost volume and amplify the natural pattern of your strands without being overly sticky, drying, or powdery—and this factor is especially important if you have damaged, color-treated, or super dry hair. Many texturizing sprays contain an ample amount of alcohol, which can be disastrous to compromised and overprocessed hair. Fortunately, there are plenty of gentle formulas that will give you the coveted texture you’re seeking without compromising the health of your hair.
