Volumized and Textured Waves with Living Proof ( a tutorial )
Cut from the same cloth

No two words are more synonymous with my favorite hairstyles than “volume” and “texture”. And when one of my absolute favorite product lines, Living Proof, reached out with their latest new product launch, Full Dry Volume Blast, you can imagine I was practically levitating in my chair from excitement.
I love volume and texture, and aerosol sprays like this seem to work best in my hair, versus a cream for example, so I could not wait to give this product a try.
In fact, as soon as I was clued in on the release, I bought a travel size product because I couldn’t wait for the full size to show up in the mail.
As you can imagine, it was true love. You can watch and see how I created these waves and the tousled texture with Dry Volume Blast, and make sure you stay until the very end of the video to learn how to recreate the prettiest little twisted half up style!
It’s been a few weeks since I first tried Dry Volume Blast, and it has become an essential product that I use every time I style my hair. It’s perfect on freshly washed hair, and also adds a great texture to day old hair. It isn’t waxy, like you may find some texture sprays to be, and it also smells so nice. It doesn’t leave your hair stiff, like a hairspray would, so your hair is still touchable and manageable. One of the main goals of the products is for it to be “light as air”, and it feels like that on the hair!
A key point that I want to be sure you know is to shake the can before you use it, and while you apply it. That will activate the product, and ensure you get maximum volume and texture!
It solves the problem of hair being too slippery for braids, or your curls blending together into one single curl if your hair is long. It’s truly a game-changer in the texture spray realm, and I can’t recommend it enough.
This delicate twisted half up style tutorial is at the end of the video you’ll find above. It’s pretty on its own, but would also look great as a start to a full updo. You could even stack two twists on top of each other for a different look.
While I love hair products, I’m always looking for ways to keep my routine streamlined. Living Proof Full Dry Volume Blast is the perfect multi-tasker that saved me time, and also delivered the exact results I wanted.
If you are new to the line, you can check out all of their products here, or try their product selector tool on the Living Proof website. It will recommend shampoo and conditioners, as well as styling products based on your hair type and what you are going for when you style your hair.
