A volumising hair duo

After falling in love with the Umburto Gianinni 'backcomb in a bottle' I was keen to try out other texturising sprays on the budget market.  I have heard an awful lot about the Charles Worthington version and how comparable it is to the Oribe dry texturising spray so I thought I would give it a go.  As I was browsing I happened to notice that Charles Worthington products were on a 2 for £8 offer so I snapped up the mousse for £1.01!  Bargin!

So first, does the texturising spray live up to the claims?  Oh yes, yes it does! It has a slight hairspray feel to it which is great because it really holds your hair in place but also adds grit which makes plaiting and other up-do's super easy!  Unlike the Umberto Gianinni version it doesn't feel sticky in your hair but mattifies it and makes it easier to manage.  I use this by spraying it mainly into the mid-lengths of my hair and lightly spritzing over the roots.  I wouldn't recommend using this as a dry shampoo as some other bloggers have suggested but love it all the same!

I wasn't sure what to expect of the mousse as I have tried very few previously but was all up for the volumising benefits it promised.  And it does deliver!  I need the tiniest amount to give my hair a professional and volumised finish and my roots feel thicker afterwards!  I apply this to towel-dryed hair just before I blow dry it and find that paired with upside-down blow drying it really gives the hair volume!  Oh, and lets not forget HOW GREAT THIS SMELLS!  My only downside, after it has been massaged in the residue left on your hands feels sticky which isn't the nicest but I can live with it!

Overall, I think this is a great budget version for adding volume and achieving salon-looking hair, especially if you don't want to splash out on a host of Oribe products!

Charles Worthington Volume and Bounce texturising spray - £6.99
Charles Worthington Volume and Bounce body booster mousse - £5.99


  1. my hair is so fine and has 0 volume to speak of, so I love reading about volumising products! I love the sound of both of these :)

    1. I have really fine hair too! These work so well at giving your hair a bit of grit to work with :)

  2. this sounds really good :D I've never really come across a good texturing spray.

    1. These are great if you are looking for something to have a go with but don't want to spend a lot. Oribe is just too expensive but these are such a great alternative I don't think it's worth spending the money on high end brands :)
