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
