I've been growing out my pixie cut in a process that is taking much, much longer than it took Jennifer Lawrence. In the meantime, I've been experimenting with my natural hair texture — which, to my great surprise (since I've had super-short hair for such a long time) — is actually pretty wavy. Instead of blow drying it pin straight into an Anna Wintour-esque bob every day, I've been drying it with a diffuser, putting a few bends in it with a curling iron, and spritzing on texturizer.
Classic beach wave sprays have proven to be too crunchy, and dry shampoo (which often nicely doubles as a hair texturizer) has been too soft. Enter this new hybrid spray-to-powder formula, and suddenly Goldilocks is really happy with her hair texture. As the name and ergonomically designed bottle suggest, you have to shake well before using. The product feels wet and the tiniest bit sticky when you first spray, then it dries down to a consistency that resembles texturizing powders, which can be hard to use sometimes. The result is touchable, cool-girl hair.
