I know that may sound a bit odd but I can't stand the look of my hair when it's freshly washed! My favourite hair look is a big sexy do that is full of texture and looks like you did not spend any time at all on it (even though, more than likely, it rook 5 products, 2 different tools and about 25 minutes in front of the mirror).
The effortless look actually takes quite a bit of effort but because I lack in patience when it comes to standing in front of a mirror for ages I rely on the help of some crafty products that give me the look with minimal use of appliances and some serious time savings!
One of my all time favourite products that I never want to be without is the TIGI Queen For A Day Thickening Spray (it's a mouthful!). I hate using mousse, it gives me a weird crispy and sticky finish but the TIGI Thickening Spray is a great alternative! It's a completely clear mist that you spray into the roots of damp hair for instant volume, body and lift. The only thing I would say here, a little goes a long way! You can definitely overdo it so don't go overboard! After you've applied this you just blowdry your hair as normal.
Once my hair is dried I sometimes put a few random curls in it, if I feel like it and have the additional time but most of the time I just leave it naturally wavy. Once it's all dry I put a little of dry shampoo through it. The one I swear by is the COLAB Sheer + Invisible Dry Shampoo by Ruth Crilly (aka A Model Recommends), it truly is the best one I've ever tried (and I've tried lots)! It really is completely invisible, smells lovely and most importantly, doesn't irritate my scalp! It just gives my hair that little extra oomph. The only pain is that lately it's been a little hard to get here in Ireland.
Last but not least I add a tiny bit of the TIGI Joyride Texturising Powder Balm*. It's an odd product that I couldn't get my head around the first few times I've used it but it's now a staple in my hair styling routine. It's one of those products that literally take the fluffiness out of freshly washed hair and give it that sexy, slept-in, second day hair look (similar effect to Bumble & Bumble Briliantine, which I also love!) - very Kate Moss.
