Well hello there you wonderful people, it’s been a while hasn’t it?
But today I am back, my motivation renewed and my organisation refreshed, the start of the new organised OhKay-DohKay. So seeing as it’s Monday (beauty day on OhKay-DohKay) I decided that it was time for a review, something else that I haven’t done for a while.
Oribe Dry Texturising Spray
When it comes to hair, I’m pretty low maintenance and like my hair as as it comes, so it’s not often that I invest in a haircare product with a hefty price tag. Yet on a recent trip to Space NK I was determined to try something new and having previously heard rave reviews about the Oribe Dry Texturising Spray I decided to take a chance.
The Low down….
Over the past few years my hair has gone from bad to worse and for the first time in my life I have been suffering with greasy hair. It’s become a huge issue for me over the last eighteen months because it means that I have to wash my hair at least three-four times a week. It’s far from ideal and only antagonises and worsens the issue, making my hair reliant on regular washing. So it’s fair to say that I am always on the look out for dry shampoo’s or other products that claim to have miracle grease banishing qualities.
I like my hair to be big, wavy and clean but I very rarely pay more than £5.00 for hair care products because for me the price tag is rarely justified. I want something reasonable, fast and durable. While Batiste is the saviour of many and does the job of the Oribe Texturising Spray )for a smidgen of the price) they do nothing for me. My hair always has a white residue and it leaves my hair feeling course, limp and very lacklustre after using the high-street faves.
Despite what you might think from looking at my pictures I actually have quite thin hair but I have a lot of it, so I need volume to ensure my hair looks healthy. I very rarely straighten my hair (unless it’s for an up style do) because it leaves my hair looking flat, boring and lifeless. So when styling my hair I usually curl it and try to add as much volume as I possibly can.
So while the Oribe Dry Texturising Spray is outside of my usual price bracket, it is the kind of product that I will usually reach for because it’s simple, quick and hopefully does what it says on the tin!
The Oribe Dry Texturising spray is described “as a volume-boosting texturising spray that doubles as a dry shampoo, creating a just-styled look that lasts for days.”
So enough waffling and let’s get to the question that we all want to know, is it any good?
First of all let’s start with the packaging because I am a huge fan of how this pretty bottle looks on my make-up table and I absolutely love the black-gold metallic affect. It absolutely looks like a high-end product and the packaging is deliciously chic, it stands out against the other bits and bobs that nestle on my desk.
When it comes to smells I tend to be really fussy and the smell of most hair products get a massive no, no. I just hate the smell of inauthentic and manufactured scents, particularly if they are really sweet and so hair products generally leave me feeling suffocated. This is the absolute opposite and while does have a sweetish smell, it’s a lot more subtle and pleasant. It faded from the air pretty quickly but remained in the hair, making my hair smell nice all day long.
Now for the big reveal- was this product any good at doing all the stuff that it said it would? (Natural Born Poet).
I’ve been using the Oribe dry texturising spray for just over a week and I love the way my hair looks after application. It definitely adds ton’s of volume to my hair and it doubles as a hair spray because the shape seems to hold all day long. Yet despite it’s ability to hold my hair in place, the spray also adds a healthy shine and just adds a finish to my styled or unsetyled hair. The golden nugget is that it acts perfectly as a dry shampoo and it’s the first one that really does prevent my greasy locks.
So, was the Oribe Dry Texturising Spray worth it?
Yet all that said I can’t really say that the hefty price tag is justified, I mean it is cray cray expensive and I can’t imagine that I will repurchase in the long run. But for now, this is my new prized position and I’m gonna make it work for me!
