The ultimate cool-girl hair that oozes ‘I woke up like this’ effortlessness has been an enigma to master for some. How do they perfect that tousled, artfully messy and chic look when so many dry texturising products leave my hair stiff, sticky and flakey? Finally, the hair savior is here, in the form of Redken’s Dry Texture Collection.
Richard Kavanagh, award winning hair stylist, Hair Expo alumni and Redken Global Artist, has teamed up with the ultimate it-girl, Aussie model Bambi Northwood-Blyth, to showcase the prowess of Redken’s latest suite of styling heroes.
The three pieces in the collection were inspired by the freshness of dry shampoo and breathe life, volume and texture back in to flat, second-day hair. When all three work together, perfectly undone, casual-chic styling becomes a reality.
The first hero product is the Dry Shampoo Paste 05. 50% dry shampoo, 50% styling paste, this hybrid freshens hair in one step and lifts the roots of the hair while providing texture without being stiff, sticky or crunchy (the biggest no-no’s!).
Next up is the Dry Shampoo Powder 02; a dry shampoo in powder-form formulated with charcoal. It absorbs oil and impurities and provides the perfect amount of volume while refreshing tresses with ease.
Tying the range together is the Triple Dry 15, which Richard describes as “a hairspray that thinks it’s dry shampoo.” Perfect for creating effortless, tousled waves, this buildable finishing spray has medium hold but with a barely-there finish with no powdery residue, meaning it can be applied all over the hair without any nasty build-up.
“Redken’s Dry Texture range is perfect for creating an effortless, lived in look with texture and a little bit of volume,” says Richard.
“Start with your Dry Shampoo powder, perfect for soaking up any oils around the crown area. Then, use your dry shampoo paste, the styling paste that thinks it’s a dry shampoo! Finally, finish with Triple Dry 15, the dry texture styling spray to give you a little bit of hold,” he explains.
The look is a ‘yes’ from Bambi: “Especially with new short hair, I love the look that Richard has created. Giving it volume and texture is super important as I do have quite fine hair. The powder is super easy to travel with, and so easy to use!” she says.
