Try Tresemme 24 Hour Body For Bouncy, Touchable Hair

Published in: Drugstore Beauty Finds, Hair, Product Reviews


Hola, chicas bonitas!


Ever heard of the old saying, “Go big or go home”? I think it mostly refers to trying your best and striving for the top, but as a child of the 80’s, I can’t help but automatically assume it’s also about the quest for big, voluminous hair!

Let me explain.

My hair was so big from 1987 to 1991 that it could’ve commanded its own orbit. Tall bangs, spiral curls, side wings (soooo tragic) — my crispy, poofy ‘do walked that fine line between madness and genius.

Back then, if you wanted big volume it came with a price. Gels left hair crunchier than a potato chip! To get hold that lasted all day long, you had to douse your mane with a cloud of hairspray (between classes) to maintain the bigness.

But that’s no longer the case. If you crave lots of volume, you can totally get big hair sans the crusty side effects.

Lately, I’ve really been wanting the look of bouncy, touchable, Victoria’s Secret runway hair. To get a full mane without the crunch, I’ve been using two volumizing styling products from Tresemme’s new 24 Hour Body Collection: 24 Hour Body Sculpting Spray Gel and 24 Hour Weightless Creme ($5 each)


What is it?

Tresemme’s 24 Hour Body collection hair products deliver volume and hold while maintaining a touchable look and feel.

I spray lightweight Tresemme 24 Hour Body Sculpting Spray Gel onto my damp, wavy hair and then gently run my fingers from the root to tip to loosen the waves. When my hair dries, the gel leaves it with lots of volume and hold that lasts from morning until night.

I really like how it performs, but there’s one thing I wish I could change. The spray pump feels uncomfortable in my hand, and I can only spray the right side of my head comfortably. When I try to spray the left side, my hand and wrist end up twisting at an odd angle. I’ve tried several things to remedy the sitch, like holding the bottle in my left hand and moving the angle of my head, etc., but no matter what, the pump still feels a little awkward in my paws.

Tresemme’s 24 Hour Body Weightless Creme, on the other hand (LOL!) is much easier to use. After spraying my hair with Sculpting Spray Gel, I run a dollup of Weightless Creme on the top layers, concentrating it on the ends. The non-greasy styling cream reduces frizz, adds shine and leaves my ‘do bouncy. It also has a light, fruity scent that smells great. Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A


Tell me girls, do you have any volumizing tips and tricks? How do you get big, bouncy hair?

    I, being given the gift of naturally pin straight hair, have to go to great lengths for volume. First, a blow dry my hair. Then, I curl my hair so I have loose curls all over my head. Then, I use a Tresemme hairspray (while holding the curls up in my hand) to spritz them down. Viola! Loose, light, fluffy curls that bouncy, and ooze volume. 😉
    It is physically impossible to have my hair straight with volume.

  2. Karen says:

    Hi Kailey,

    Ahh, the grass is always greener on the other side. Many a time I’ve lusted for pin straight hair! 🙂

    Tresemme makes some good styling products. Do you have to reapply the hairspray throughout the day?

  3. Kate says:

    Kailey, I have the same problem except my hair is fine on top of being straight so it doesn’t hold curl AT ALL. I found a more effective and easier method than what you do though.

    I blow dry all my hair upside down except my bangs. When my hair is dry, instead of flipping it back up, I put my hair dryer on the cool setting aiming at the roots to lock in the volume. Mist hair with extra-hold hairspray (whilst upside down), let hairspray set for a minute and flip back up. Take a brush if you need to to even out anything and POOF!!! mega-volume hair. I only do that when I want big hair. I normally settle for a tiny bit of volume as it looks more natural on me.

    The problem with Tresemme and me is that it tends to weigh down my fine hair and build up.

  4. Kailey says:

    My hair never held a curl either, until I used the Tresemme 24 hour body/hold hairspray. My curls lasted all day today, while usually I have to sneak a mini bottle of hairspray under my uniform cardigan and carry it with me to re-apply during the day.

  5. Kate says:

    You’re very welcome. I’m surprised when people haven’t heard the upside down trick.

    Now, if only I could find a great way to keep my hair in curls without say, five pounds of product for more than an hour. I’m still figuring that one out. The old-fashioned way with cloth strips works well as I keep it all day without hairspray or mousse but I can’t control how loose I can make the curls. The cloth technique creates corkscrew curls.

  6. I am such a huge fan of big hair, I can’t even tell you. And I am always seeking out BIGGER hair because my hair is fine and tends to lie flat. I usually have to rely on a great cut (and some mild backcombing) to get that “bump” in my crown, LOL! I have tried many different volumizing products, but none work that great on me.

    Speaking of hair I am getting a FAB (hopefully) hair cut on Saturday that I am beyond excited about! Here is a pic. The girl is Sarah Harding, who apparently is a huge British celebrity

    Vampy Varnish,

    Have you tried blow-drying your hair upside down on both heat (to dry) and cool (to set)? It sounds like you have my kind of hair and it works WONDERS. I even spray hairspray with my hair upside down. I blow dry it with a round brush so I don’t have to puts with it after I got all that volume in. You won’t even need to backcomb it after blow-drying it upside down with a round brush.

  8. Heidi says:

    I sprinkle some baby powder on the scalp and massage it in really well, otherwise you’ll age 10 years in a matter of minutes lol. The powder absorbs the oils and gives my hair a nice boost.

  9. Karen says:

    Hi Vampy Varnish,

    I love that haircut! 🙂 It’s edgy and sweet at the same time. Will you be posting a pic on your blog after the cut? I can’t wait to see it.

    I’m also feeling the color BIG TIME. I wish I could pull off blonde! *tears*

  10. Karen says:

    Hi Heidi,

    I’ve read about that trick but haven’t tried it. I noticed that dry shampoos do the same thing when I use ’em. It’s amazing the difference a little volume at the roots can make, huh?

  11. tanya says:

    I have long, pin straight hair…I wish I could make it big and puffy. At this point, I’d give anything a try! 🙂

  12. Heidi says:

    Yup, a little volume goes a long way. I was never a fan of volumizing products because my hair is already really thick and full. I’ve tried volumizing shampoo once and it looked like I had a poufy triangle on my head. lol

  13. Shiny says:

    For this price I think I will try your two step Tresemme system. I’m getting a trim today so I have a feeling it will become more manageable just from that.

    • Karen says:

      Hi Shiny,

      I like it! Let me know what you think of the spray gel pump. I’m wondering if I’m the only person having trubs with it…

      Happy Friday!

  14. Hi,

    You know I have tried that but when my hair is short and layered it winds up sticking out all over the place like I have escaped from an insane asylum! When I had long hair I did that sometimes and it did help a little with volume. I am SO uncoordinated though, so that’s an issue haha. I need someone to just come to my house and do my hair for me every day. 🙂

      LOL, Vampy Varnish!

      Did you ever see that MTV episode of Cribs featuring Mariah Carey? Girlfriend actually has an in-house beauty team on staff to do her makeup and hair every day. Oh, to have that luxury!

  15. Yes I did and that makes me ILL! I want hair/makeup/wardrobe people plus a trainer and chef. Oh and house cleaner and gardener. Is that too much to ask for? 😉

  16. Karen says:

    Hi Tanya,

    I’m a little jealous… I’d totally trade you some poof for some of that straight hair! I spent most of the late 90s doing everything in my power to get my hair straight a la Jennifer Aniston. 🙂

  17. Karen says:

    Hi Heidi,

    Ah, I know intimately how it is to have triangle hair. When I was in sixth grade I insisted on getting a bob and needless to say it wasn’t cute. It was triangle hair to the extreme!

  18. Karen says:

    Hi Vampy Varnish,

    Nope, I think it’s completely sane. While we’re at it lets also ask for some in-house cat groomers. Tabs and Sammy Hammy need to look fly, too.

  19. Sonia says:

    I really like the Tresemme 24 hour body collection! I won a free set which includes shampoo, conditioner, root boosting spray, mousse, spray gel, weightless creme, and finishing spray. Even though the entire collection doesn’t cost much (like you said they’re about $5 a bottle), I LOVE all of it! After using the shampoo and conditioner I use root boosting spray (and I cheat a little and spray just a tiny bit on the rest of my hair for extra lift), then mousse all over, and then I blow dry my hair upside down. When it’s almost all dry I lift my head back up and I use a round brush to smooth everything and style my bangs. When I’m all done I use the finishing spray. I have the finest hair in my whole family and now nobody will be able to tell! This is much better than teasing for volume, which is what I used to do! 🙂

  20. Juliana says:

    I just bought this stuff today. I know it’ll probably work better when I apply the product to damp hair. But, even when I applied it when my hair is dry, it still looks nice :). But I agree with you Karen, it is VERY awkward to try and hold the bottle properly while spraying. I guess it’s something I’ll have to try and get accustomed to :P.
