Does your hair sit flat and lifeless without texture? Sugar sprays are one of the newest beauty trends that can give hair body and bounce without the crispy residue. Dubbed as the new sea salt sprays, they are made from concentrated amounts of sugar extracts which can help to strengthen the hair follicle, and make it thick and bouncy!
How do they work?
Sugar sprays work in the same way a traditional salt spray would: spritz into dry or damp hair, then leave to air-dry naturally for best results. Sugar sprays are actually better for your hair since they don’t leave a sticky residue and will make your hair shine (in the good way!).
They are also designed for fine hair types since they create the volume of added texture, making each strand look thick and healthy. Concentrate most of the spray on the mid-section to the bottom of your hair, then massage gently with your fingers to create added volume. You could also dry your hair on a cool temperature to speed-up the process if you’re in a hurry to leave the house.
Where can I get a sugar spray?
Depending on your price range, there are high end options plus a great variety available at the drugstore.
Keratin Complex Sweet Definition Texturising Sugar Mist, $17
Apply the spray to small sections of your hair, then use a diffuser to create the illusion of body and texture in your hair.
Tigi Bed Head Candy Fixations Sugar Shock, $18.99
Or you could make your own elixir using water and sugar and concentrating it mainly on the ends of your hair. For extra lift at the roots, stick to a sea salt spray; or combine the two for a unique look!
