Garnier Fructis De-Constructed Texture Tease Dry Touch Finish Spray | Review

I never used to understand dry texture sprays and aerosol dry shampoos, but since I discovered that volume is my new best friend on second day hair I can’t get enough of them! Most come with a higher price tag though, so I was very excited to try out Garnier’s new De-Constructed Texture Tease Dry Touch Finish Spray. I picked mine up at Target for less than $4, which is a steal considering that my current favorite dry texture spray is $20!

This product claims to add texture and volume to flat, lifeless hair for that beachy tousled look. It’s supposed to have a flexible, non-sticky hold that can easily be re-styled. An instant dry down and weightless finish are also promised.

BlowPro Faux Dry Dry Shampoo

blow pro faux dry 4

Dry shampoo can be a miracle product but it’s so hard to find one that works.  I’m always on the lookout for a great formula that really works, but this one by BlowPro is one that I always come back to.

It’s a very fine white powder that you dispense onto hair in little “poofs” by squeezing the bottle.  I found the application odd at first, but once you get the hang of it it’s very easy.  It feels a bit like inflating a blood pressure cuff.  I kind of wish the Bumble & Bumble Pret a Powder (another dry powder shampoo) had the same method of application because it’s easier to control how much product you apply and where it goes.  For travel it has a swivel top to cover the nozzle and prevent spills, and it’s non aerosol so it’s airplane friendly!

Blowpro Textstyle Dry Texture Spray

The Blowpro Dry Texture Spray was the very first “texturizing spray” I ever tried. It wasn’t love at first spritz, but now I enjoy it so much I’ve almost finished the can and even purchased the travel size!

It comes in both a full and travel size. I like the green and white packaging, and I think the more recent cans have a green spray nozzle as well. The top is rather cheaply made but on the full size it fits snugly and doesn’t fall off. The travel size top can pop off if it’s rolling around in your bag. Both sizes have a nice even mist and I don’t find that it dispenses at pressure washer forces. I’ve had my full size for at least 6 months and I use it at least a couple of times per week, so I feel that you get a decent amount of product. I haven’t had any issues with the nozzle clogging either.
