I cannot stop smelling my hair today! It smells exactly like that yummy tea they serve at Aveda stores.
You know the one. It’s herbal, a little sweet, a little bit like fresh crushed sage sprinkled on top of a bucket of ginger candy and cinnamon. It smells fresh and delicious, and it’s all up in my strands right now because I just sprayed the new Aveda Texture Tonic ($25) into my mane. The aroma is super strong.
Texture Tonic is a new texturizing and styling spray in Aveda’s hair styling line, and unlike most salt-only beach wave hairsprays, like Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray, it’s a sugar AND salt spray.
I’m not exactly sure what the sugar brings to the table, but it’s bringing something. I’ll say that much.
One thing I love about this spray is that it doesn’t make my hair feel hard or crunchy, and you know I don’t do crunch.
It does add grit and texture, and it capably coaxes out waves, but it isn’t nearly as gritty as Bumble’s Surf Spray. It’s, like, mid-level grit, so you don’t feel that salt spray stiffness or stickiness, and your mane remains touchable (although not as soft as it is when I use R+Co Sail, which is the love of my life right now).
Aveda Texture Tonic is similar to…
