Hair Type: Straight smooth, but thin limp hair
I have been searching for a good Volume Spray for my thin limp hair and finally I found Batiste Style OOMPH My Locks XXL Volume Spray. I am a big fan of Batiste dry shampoos and I have three of them. I was super excited for this product and it turns out a really lovely product. Read on to know how it works on my hair.
Product Description and Ingredients:
Price: Rs. 749/- for 200ml
My Experience with Batiste Stylist OOMPH My Locks XXL Volume Spray – Hot pink:
This Hair Spray comes in a super pretty funky pink color long tin can with a white cap. Packaging looks so cute and eye catching. It has a normal spray nozzle that works perfect and provides right amount of product at one go. All the details are nicely described on the can. This long size bottle contains 200ml product at Rs. 749, which is little pricey but I never mind to spend money on a good hair product. It is actually a worth buy for me.
It is a volume spray, that needs to be applied on dry hair. First I separate few sections in my hair and i apply it on my roots. I prefer blending the entire product with my fingers. I generally never brush a lot after applying it. I lightly brush my upper section and try to keep the volume up on my hair. It helps to hold the fluffy look and stays for long time.
It comes in a normal fine mist like texture with some white talc like properties in it. This talc like properties helps to absorb all the excess oil on hair and provides that desire volume to my hair. It is easy to spray on hair and it blends smoothly. Just after spraying, it leaves a white cast on hair but with few massages the whiteness fades away from hair and looks so natural. Texture is not too dry or sticky in nature. It feels light and smooth that easily absorbs into hair and provides a fresh lively hair.
But if I apply excess amount then my hair feels little dry, so I don’t apply lots of product at once. The dryness is a temporary effect that goes by the end of the day. It never causes hair fall or damage. It contains some very fresh smell, that instantly provides a refreshing effect to hair and also controls the odor.
Now let’s talk about how it works on hair. So as a volume spray it does its job perfectly. It acts as a dry shampoo as well as a volume spray. It helps to absorb all the excess oil and greasiness from the hair and makes hair so fresh. It adds good noticeable volume to my super limp hair and my hair becomes really fluffy. I can easily create any hair style after applying this spray. It helps to provide a good height on my hair and also it locks that volume for long. The effect looks like back combing and my hair becomes so bouncy. The volume stays around 7 hrs nicely on my hair. As I have very thin hair so for me it is quite difficult to create a puff on hair and my puff never stays more than 1 hr. After applying this on the roots, I created a nice puff on my hair which looks so pretty and the volume stays long too. It locks that effect for good time without any greasiness. But the effect is not XXL like they claim. It is good for a decent volume not a super high volume, then you need to spray lots of product. May be on the normal hair it will provide more volume.
Overall I am super happy with this instant volume spray that actually works on my thin, limp hair. I really love to use it, and it keeps my hair fresh for long time, even after the volume goes down my hair looks fresh and non oily. It is really an amazing product, except that white cast which it leaves on hair, it needs a good massage and right application. Here I applied very small amount of spray that gave me a pretty volume to my hair and I finally created a puff on my hair.
