When to Use a Texture Spray vs. Dry Shampoo on Hair

Article Banner Article Banner

Looking to maintain that just washed hair look, even on day 2 or 3? Dry shampoo for hair or hair texture spray are two popular product options that help revive hair, but what is the difference between the two and when do you use them?  

What Does a Texturizing Spray Do?  

A dry texturizing spray is a matte hair spray best used to bring out your hair’s natural shape while adding texture. Whether you have straight, wavy or curly hair, it fights flatness and is the perfect product to help with styling and adding body! Texture sprays are perfect for achieving those effortless looking hair styles, adding a little tousle to your hair’s natural movement.  

Is a Texturizing Spray the Same as Hair Spray?

It’s easy to confuse the purpose of hair spray versus texture spray. They both help to hold hair styles for longer periods of time, but a hair spray is better for a more polished, crisp look with a glossy finish while a texture spray delivers a style that’s more undone with a soft matte finish.  

How to Use a Texture Spray

Use a texturizer hair spray on damp hair before styling to add grit to fine, straight or just-washed hair, or after styling on dry hair as a finishing touch to hold in styles without weighing down hair and for a more deconstructed look. To apply, shake the can and hold 6-8 inches away from your head and spray all over.

When to Use a Texture Spray vs. Dry Shampoo

While both products are meant to absorb excess oils, a dry shampoo works to extend hair styles and a texture spray works to prepare them. 

To put it simply, use dry shampoo in between washes to keep hair looking clean and refreshed and use a texture spray before styling to add grip, or after for extra volume and texture.
