It's hard to remember life before texture spray (not that we would want to). These magical sprays transform our actual bedhead into model-off-duty bedhead. Even those among us blessed with plenty of natural texture have a soft spot for texturizing sprays.

Our Top Picks

Best Overall: Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray

This is truly the OG of texturizing sprays, which is why it’s a desert island beauty essential for so many celebrity hairstylists. The universal spray truly works on all hair types, and it’s even safe for those with colored or keratin-treated hair. Mist it on and you’ll see for yourself—it delivers shine, definition, volume, and silky strands, yet it never zaps moisture.

It’s infused with antioxidants to boost hydration and protect color, as well as aloe vera to condition and smooth. It also works as a dry shampoo, since the formula has patented polymers to absorb oil at the roots, so it’ll bring life back to your style for days. Oh, and we can't forget about its intoxicating scent.

We took this product for a spin. Find out how it went in our Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray review.

Best for Fine Hair: Drybar Triple Sec 3-in-1 Finishing Spray

Fine hair can often equal limp hair. Not so with Drybar’s Triple Sec 3-in-1 Finishing Spray. The triple threat is a dry shampoo, volumizer, and texturizer, all in one.

Oil at the roots can weigh down fine hair, but this soaks it up for a non-greasy finish, translating to major volume, and leaving hair matte all over with texture. The formula is also infused with UV filters to protect against the dulling effects of sun damage. Bonus: It smells delish, with notes of coconut, amber, and vanilla.

Best for Thick Hair: Joico Beach Shake Texturizing Finisher

You don’t have to spend a day in the sand to get perfect beachy waves. This quick-drying formula is infused with coconut oil, sunflower seed oil and beeswax to condition and boost shine. Made for medium to thick hair, the spray makes it a cinch to apply and it leaves hair ultra touchable—never crispy or crunchy. And even if you didn’t have a beach getaway, its tropical fragrance will make you feel like you did.  

Best for Curly Hair: Sachajuan Dry Powder Shampoo

Ready to pump up the volume? Sachajuan’s Dry Powder Shampoo will take your hair to new heights. Despite its name, the powder comes in an aerosol can, which means you won’t have to struggle with trying to evenly distribute it through your hair.

Of course, you could just stick to your roots and apply it there to work as a dry shampoo, but if you spray it all over, its texturizing powers come out. It works for every single hair type, ranging from straight to coiled, and never leaves a chalky or sticky residue.

Best Drugstore: Not Your Mother's Double Take Dry Finish Texture Spray

This bargain texturizer makes your hair look and feel good, thanks to the infusion of quinoa keratin and aloe leaf juice that moisturize and condition. The spray leaves hair gritty in the best way, hence thicker and easier to style. It brings shape, texture, volume, and body while still leaving natural movement. 

Best Budget: Garnier Fructis De-Constructed Texture Tease

Just a quick spritz of this multitasker goes a long way. The award-winning mist can make tight curling iron spirals look undone or transform a basic, boring ponytail into a lush look thanks to the micro-mineral styling powder. It takes strands and transforms them into tousled, textured locks that look thick and full without ever feeling stiff or heavy.

Best Foam: Ouai Dry Texture Foam

Another award-winner, ​Ouai’s Dry Texture Foam is the secret to undone texture. You can thank its polymers and rice protein for that, which visibly thicken and freshen up hair. In addition to adding dry texture, it controls frizz and has impressive hold. It works for all hair types, from pin straight to tight curls. Don't be surprised if you're quickly addicted to the scent; the beautiful floral North Bondi fragrance features notes of bergamot, Italian lemon, rose de mai, violet, and white musk.
