I'm super excited about this post so let's just dive in...
Honestly, I was a little nervous to try new TRESemme Compressed Micro Mist Hair Spray because there can sometimes be a barrier between traditional and natural hair products. I also didn't know what need I had for hair spray while my hair is in it's natural state. However, three days after I tried it for the first time, I'm ready to refresh my curls because the result is flawless in so many ways. Here's why...
Easy to Use
It may have a fancy name and fancy technology, but the application of TRESemme Compressed Micro Mist Hair Spray is just like that of any other hair spray you've used. A nice, natural hold doesn't require a large amount of product at all and, though it comes in a cute little "compressed" bottle, it contains the same amount of sprays as the traditional hair spray bottle.
Naturalistas! TRESemme has crossed the line that separates most of us curly girls from the rest of the hair world. I'm serious. I will admit I was still skeptical after I realized the new line of hair spray includes TRESemme Compressed Micro Mist Hair Spray Texture (Hold 1). But, ladies (and gents), TRESemme really did think of us! Notice my hair in the pic above. No matter how beautiful my wash-n-go comes out, my hair reverts to this frizzy blur after a night of sleep. (I know, I know: pineapple. I already do that. My hair just has a mind of its own.) Now, refer to the pic below. This is my wash-n-go with TRESemme Compressed Micro Mist Hair Spray Texture after sleeping on it and not doing anything to it the next morning besides letting it down and adding a tiny bit more Hold 1 Spray.
So you see why I had to add a little more for the rainy day, right? #flawless. My curls remained tamed, shiny, and defined while maintaining their volume through rain and humidity. (Now I want to try TRESemme Compressed Micro Mist Hair Spray Boost to give my hair crazy big volume.) Right now I'm on day three with my hair in a pony tail and my curls are still popping. Even better, my hair is still tamed and defined, even on the inside where it usually defies me no matter what. It took no effort at all to get my massive mane into a nice messy ponytail. None of this, however, is the best part. What I love most is that with TRESemme Compressed Micro Mist Hair Spray Texture, my curls maintained shine, definition, and their natural pattern without the shrinking and stiffness some natural hair products cause. How much more do you need me to say?
The Nitty Gritty
Here's how and why TRESemme Compressed Micro Mist Hair Spray works. The micro-mist particles penetrate the top layer of hair to provide deeper coverage whereas traditional sprays tend to be formulated with larger particles that sit on top of the hair and cause build-up (oh yea, that's another thing: my hair still doesn't look like it snowed in 74-degree-weather). The lasting hold, lightweight coverage, humidity/frizz resistance, and allowance of natural movement are thanks to an optimized blend of "tough" and "durable" polymers. Too much of one and you get stiff hold, too much of the other and you get movement but no hold. For my environmentally conscience friends, the 5.5 oz can uses compression technology and 50% less gas than the typical 11 oz can, which helps reduce CO2 levels floating around.
Where to Find It
By now I'm sure you're like, "Okay Mallory, just give up the goods." You got it. You can find all four products in the new line at your local Walmart. I'm not going to lie, I'm glad about that because Walmart is my go-to when I want lower prices. Additionally, the complete line is comprised of...
TRESemme Compressed Micro Mist Hair Spray Texture (Hold 1)
TRESemme Compressed Micro Mist Hair Spray Smooth (Hold 2)
TRESemme Compressed Micro Mist Hair Spray Boost (Hold 3)
TRESemme Compressed Micro Mist Hair Spray Extend (Hold 4)
