Product Review – Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray

Two of us bought the Oribe (OR-BAY) Dry Texturizing Spray after reading great things about it. Blake Lively used it on the set of Gossip Girl and I mean really…who doesn’t want her hair?!. It’s around $44 for a big bottle and it adds volume to any style and can be used as a dry shampoo too. We tried it on an avid dry shampoo user with fine hair and on medium thickness hair that hasn’t had good results with dry shampoos in the past (check out our review on Tresemme’s Dry Shampoo). We’ve got reviews and picture results of what this product can do (can’t believe I’m about to show 100’s of people my greasy hair but here we go)…

Review #1:

If you’re a hair washaholic like me, you will love this dry shampoo/texture spray by Oribe! I’ve tried a cheaper dry shampoo before and wondered why they would make a product that made my hair greasier and claim it does the opposite? I then felt bad about myself wondering why I couldn’t be like everyone else and go 2 days without shampooing :(

This is definitely my top-product-must-have for any hairstyle and will be a staple on my cluttered counter forever. It comes out as kind of a powdery spray but doesn’t leave any white residue (as far as I can tell on my blonde hair). It does give your hair kind of a chalky feeling – that of course washes out- depending on how much you use, but this doesn’t bother me in the least (more people look at my hair than feel it;)

I first tried it to add a bit of mess to my blowout. I like a bit of bed-head hair, even on my straight styles, and this delivered. Even if it didn’t, I would buy it just for the smell – so good.

Then on my third day of not shampooing I went to pull my hair up into a bun after sleeping on it and noticed the sides we’re looking greasy, even for a pulled back style. I gave the spray a try and it seriously delivered. It got rid of that stringy, greasy look in the darker parts of my hair and again, made it smell amazing (I’m seriously waiting for the moment a stranger stops me on the street and tells me how good my hair smells;). It also added some volume to my hair and I would even be comfortable wearing it down – which is pretty much unheard of for me on the 3rd day of not shampooing. I found that after spraying this product on, brushing out the hair made my hair look even less greasy.

This is the most enthusiastic I’ve been about a hair product yet. Buy it, buy it, buy it!

Review #2:
I was immediately intrigued with the Dry Texturizing Spray. An alternative to the normal dry shampoo, this not only takes away any hints of oil or dirty hair, but it also ads texture and volume. I love not washing my hair, as I’ve mentioned a million times before, and found it to be a perfect match for my fine hair. If I need volume, I just back comb, spray at the root, then smooth. If I need texture, I spray all throughout my hair then shake my head and I’m left with defined tousled strands. It doesn’t leave your hair feeling brittle or damaged like the Tresemme product we reviewed in the past but it can definitely feel on the dry side if you use too much. If this happens I simply give it a good brushing out and it feels good as new. Lastly, I have to mention it’s smell, I am in love with the smell of my hair after I’ve used it. I wanna say it’s kinda like mandarin oranges?

Make sure to pick this one up, it’s shortly gonna become a staple in your haircare regiment, I’m sure of it!

    OMG, I couldn’t agree with you guys more and am so happy you had the same amazing experience with it…it is like miracle potion! and I love the comment on the stranger stopping you because I can’t stop smelling my own hair, creepy but true!

    Well, until the next shipment we only have a few tall ones left and a few more of the purse sizes!

    Ooo purse size would be awesome! I’m getting one of those next time I’m in.

    It is definitely my favorite hair product EVER (and just so it’s clear, we’re not getting paid to say that;)

    I have thin fine hair. Which would be best Oribe dry texturing spray or Davine texturing dust?

      Hi Mary! We haven’t tried the Davine Texturizing Dust so we can’t weigh in on that product.

      In our opinion, we like the powders for giving volume at the roots, but they tend to be a bit stickier so not necessarily something we might like through the length of our hair (although the Davine product does suggest you can do that).

      The Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray on the other hand is great for giving texture through the length of your hair and not as much stickiness or holding power to boost volume a ton at the roots.

      If you’re looking for a boost in your roots, you may want to try the Davines but if you’re looking for some overall volume and texture, the Oribe may be the better choice.

      Hope that helps!
