My Weekly Obsession: VO5 Plump It Up Spray

I have never really been one to backcomb my hair. I've tried it a couple of times but my hair often ends up in a big tangled mess and I definitely don't suit extremely voluminous hair, as I often just end up looking like I've been dragged through a hedge or something!

However, I do like to add a tiny bit of volume to my hair rather than just having it stuck flat to my head all of the time and this VO5 Plump It Up Dry Backcombing Spray certainly helps with this!

All you need to do it spray it into your hair and then massage it in with your fingertips and it instantly gives your hair extra volume! You can add as much as you like, however, I have found that a little bit really does go a long way. I only add a tiny amount and my hair ends up with so much lift, leading me to brush over it slightly with a hairbrush to make it look a bit more natural.

This spray is a great alternative to backcombing as it still adds texture but doesn't damage your hair at all and can be brushed out super duper easily. It also doesn't make it feel greasy and still helps it feel fresh! It can add a tonne of volume and would work for all kinds of hair types and styles, even up-dos! You can apply it to the specific areas where you want the volume to be. I think it would look great applied to the back of your hair on the top in some styles.

This product is super affordable and, if you're looking to check it out in more detail, you can view it HERE on the Boots website!
