What it is: Amika Bombshell Blowout Spray

What they say: Amika uses natural rice starch in many of our styling products to give you the looks you're looking for, minus that extra weight. Extra Volume: Massage Bombshell Blowout Spray into your roots pre-blow dry for the best results. Use on damp hair for texture and volume or on dry hair as a re-styler or for light hold. 

How to use: Divide damp hair into sections, and spray from roots to ends before blow-drying. The spray can also be used on dry hair.

What I think: I've been a devotee to Moroccanoil Treatment (read here) for almost a decade now and use it before all heat styling. But I'm always open to trying new things. When I got a fairly large sample of this Amika Blowout Spray I decided to give it a go.

For the most part, I used this spray on dry hair before heat styling with a flat iron or curling iron. A few times I did spray it on before blow drying. 

This didn't work as great for me as a blow out spray. I rarely ever blow out my hair because it never gets sleek and shiny, just frizzy. I had hoped this spray would help. But while I did get more volume, I still had a good bit of frizzies that needed to be flat ironed.

So I continued to use the Moroccanoil Treatment on damp hair, let it air dry overnight, and then sprayed this on in the morning before using a heat tool.

 My hair is long, but tends to lean more toward the fine side so a little bit went a long way for me. A few pumps coated my dry hair pretty thoroughly and then I let it soak in before using the flat iron.

After I ran the iron over my hair though, I noticed it felt a little stiffer than normal from the spray. A quick brush stroke fixed the problem though.

Using this spray, I did notice that my hair felt a lot healthier and smoother after using a heat tool. At the time, my flat iron was on the verge of going as well so I was really cranking the heat up and this really helped to protect it.

Overall, I liked this product a lot, but I don't know if I liked it enough to replace my Moroccanoil Treatment
