I briefly mentioned TRESemmé Texture Layer (de)constructing Velvet Creme* (long name!) in my last Autumn Edit video, and since it has been used just about everyday, I thought it had earned a review of its own. Texture is TRESemmé's new range based around deconstructing and (obviously) adding texture to your style - it's probably not quite as new now but they introduced these products 40 floors up above London, so I needed a while to recover from the vertigo and work out what I thought of the products!
The stand out product for me is the Texture Layer (de)constructing Velvet Creme. I usually wave my hair to look quite textured but during the day, without product, the waves will all merge and it can just wind up looking like I don't know how to use straighteners properly. The Velvet Creme separates the layers to give the whole thing definition and make it look a bit scruffed up and piece-y which I guess is rather Alexa Chung-ish (not a fan). I blow dry and style my hair and then rub a pea sized amount between my palms before scrunching and rubbing it through the mid-lengths and ends. It feels a little bit sticky on your hands, like most soft-hold gels, but it does leave your hair feeling like hair which is top priority for me when it comes to styling products.
The other products in the range don't work so well on my short hair sadly. I can't stand the feel of those styling dusts and they do cause your hair to go 'up' a bit, which is great if you need volume, but not so much if there isn't the length to begin with. However the good news is they're all brilliantly priced as each product from the range is currently retailing for £5.50 at Boots.
