Toni&Guy Casual Sea Salt Texturising Spray

I was really excited to try out this product and I'm aiming to find some texturising and voluminsing products for my hair - also I've always wanted to try a salt spray. However, although impressed at first I was slightly disappointed with this.

When you initially spray it on your hair, it smells really nice and fresh. Instantly, you can see soft waves forming in your hair - and by scrunching as you spray, it encourages them to form more. However, within like  1-2 hours my hair looked exactly them same, prior to using this - straight and normal. The next time I used it, I sprayed in some more and set it a bit with hairspray - but it didn't work. I wasn't expecting it to completely wave my hair, with a similar to waving hair with heat, but just wanted some texture to remain. Another issue is that it didn't last me that long, I literally used it about 5 times and the (75ml) bottle was finished.

If you're prepared to keep spritzing your hair throughout the day or you only want the texture for a short period of time, I'd recommend it. However, this product is not for me - it doesn't have the longevity or lack of maintenance.

Is there any texturing or volumising products you'd recommend?

THE Tangle Teezer

The hair brush that claims to painlessly detangle your hair. With it ergonomic shape; it fits into the palm of your hand comfortably to get those stubborn tangles out of your hair. Having long hair myself, I hated brushing through my hair; I hated the breakage and fly-aways it gave so just gave up and only combed it through in the shower - with conditioner! - which would takes me AGES. However, I have my eye on this brush for a while in Boots, but I couldn't justify spending £11 on a hair brush. So, I had a search on ebay and found one to bid on for about £7/8 - I cant really remember.

Anyways, I'm 100% happy with the purchase and I'd highly recommend them - even at the RRP. It has different length bristles which gently detangle hair from the surface of the hair then go deeper in - if that makes sense... - the more you brush through. It does not tug on your hair at all and the bristles aren't too sharp on your scalp so it's really comfortable when brushing through.

I got mine in black but they have a wide variety of colours and styles to choose from.
