Hello, Spoiled Pretty readers! I am so excited to be the newest contributor here at SP! First, a little bit about me — I am a Korean-American woman, which means I have naturally poker-straight hair. The good part about my hair is that it’s low maintenance and manageable. As for the downside, it’s lifeless and as limp as a wet noodle. So what can a girl do about flat, melba-toast hair?
I recently had a body booster face-off with two products that promised to put some pep into my hair: TRESemme 24 Hour Body Finishing Spray and Living Proof Full Thickening Mousse. First up, the spray. The spray comes blasting out of the aerosol can at 100 miles an hour, a la Aqua Net. After a few seconds of spraying the product while hanging my head upside down I looked in the mirror and saw the Bride of Frankenstein looking back at me — body boosting indeed. A quick run-through with the comb and my hair was under control with much more bounce than usual.
For a less dramatic boost to your do’, the mousse delivers just like any other mousse. There is no dramatic unleashing as with the spray. What sets this product apart is that it smells absolutely amazing and is so lightweight that you would never know any product is in your hair. That unwanted crunch that some products leave behind is non-existent after applying this mousse.
So which look do you prefer – subtle body or va-va voom volume? Share your opinion in the comments below.
