If you've watched the videos I put up on my YouTube channel last month (which you really should!), you may have noticed that I talked about a particular hair product in both my May Favorites | 2015 and My Typical Hair Routine. That product was the Rusk Texture Dry Finishing Spray in Medium Hold, and I absolutely love it.
I first tried a sample of this when it came in one of my Glossybox or Boxycharm boxes. I can't remember which it was, but I fell in love with the way it worked right away. However, there was a major downside: it smelled a lot like rubber cement. I'm pleased to announce that they have since changed their formula for the better! It works exactly the same, but has a pleasant scent that reminds me of some sea salt sprays, like Not Your Mother's Sea Salt Spray.
While this is marketed as a texturizing/hairspray type product, I do have to admit that I don't exactly use this as a hairspray. I've had such a difficult time with hairspray, and usually just end up skipping that step completely or I layer it with the Suave Max Hold Hairspray. If I curl my hair and just use this product on its own to lock in those curls, they usually fall out around noon. :(
However, I love the way it gives my hair a little more texture, which in turn gives it more volume, and makes my hair look a little thicker, as well. This volume and thickness does actually remain intact through the entire day, which is pretty awesome, particularly since my hair does have a tendency to go flat. The all over texture I get with this product is incredible, and really gives my hair that nice, relaxed beachy look that is amazing for summer, but without the weird sticky sensation of salt sprays!
So, even though I wouldn't exactly recommend this as a hairspray (still looking for the perfect one!), it does still do wonders for the texture and volume of my hair, and for that fact alone, I will be keeping this in my collection! I do have to quick mention once again that I am so, so glad they changed the scent on this product! It truly was awful before, but still would have been worth the purchase to me!
If you've tried this finishing spray before, let me know what you thought of it! Oh, and if you know of any good hairsprays I should try, please, please let me know about that, too. I feel like I've been searching for ages for a good hairspray that holds well, but doesn't make your hair feel weird. Does such a thing exist??? Finally, make sure to come back here on Thursday if you're interested in another review! This time it will be on a couple makeup products, and you won't want to miss it! Until then, love you!
