Review: Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray

Let’s talk about hair today and the famous Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray. It seems like everyone in the beauty community has tried this little gem so I decided to give it a whirl too. DSC02555

What it promises from the Oribe website:

~ bigger, better, full-on glamorous hair

~ This invisible dry hair spray builds in incredible volume and sexy texture.

~ patented polymers absorb oil at the roots. a brilliant alternative to dry shampoo. 

~ revolutionary (invisible) dry spray for incredible volume

~ creates sultry texture and sexy lift

~ formulated without parabens or sodium chloride. Color and keratin treatment safe. UV protection for hair.

What it delivers: 

It took me a while to figure out how to use this product. At first, I used it the way Youtube beauty gurus did (hi Amelia Liana and Claire Marshall) which was to spray it directly on my roots on second day hair. That made my hair a sticky, oily mess. Yuck!

Then, I used it by turning my hair upside down and spraying my roots on second day hair. This way worked better than the first way but left my hair feeling dry. My hair felt crunchy at the ends and wasn’t soft or touchable. The upside of this was that I was able to manipulate my hair into a bun which would normally be impossible as my hair is often too slick.

I got volume out of this product but not at my roots…the volumizing started midway on my hair. I did however, get lots of texture and grit which my hair lacks during first and second day hair. I’m not sure that this worked as a dry shampoo for me as I still prefer my old stand-by dry shampoo from Principessa Beauty. As for the famous fruity-floral scent, I like it am able to appreciate the appeal of the scent for many beauty gurus out there.

Price point: 8 fl oz for CAD $42 or 2.2 fl oz for CAD $23

Rating: B

Final thoughts: I’m undecided on my feelings for this product. On one hand, it does what it promises to do which is to give volume, texture and grit to hair. On the other hand, it’s expensive for what it is… a fancy smelling hairspray. Could I live without this? Most likely. If I cared enough and had loads of money to spend on my hair, I’d re-purchase. I’ll use it until the product is done and that’ll be it. I am intrigued by this brand eventhough it is not all-natural…

Have you tried the Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray or any other Oribe product? What did you think?

you’ve been stylesyah-ed! xo

  1. Good to know about this – I keep seeing it mentioned and it’s so pricey! I’ve not tried it… and i don’t think I’d like it based on your review.
    I didn’t know that Principessa Beauty had a dry shampoo – thanks for linking your review to it – off to read!
    (I use Cake Beauty’s loose powder for the darker hair and also Colab’s dry shampoo)

    • It’s a really tricky product to use…I’m *still* trying to figure it out. I used it two days ago and my hair became oily :/ Give it a whirl if you can…It may work better for certain hair types over others maybe! It’s just too high-maintenance for me to figure out how to use it 😛

  2. i feel the same way for almost all the hair sprays/dry shampoos out there. i just can’t find the one that really stands out from the crowd you know?
