We’ve reviewed quite a few texturizing sprays around these parts, particularly praising our go-to affordable pick from Garnier’s new launch. While we absolutely still think that the Garnier product is a good choice, especially at the price point, we can’t seem to help ourselves when it comes to Oribe. Not only do the products smell incredibly, but they seem to be adored by every beauty and fashion lover out there. So, in a recent Birchbox haul, we picked up a new bottle of the much loved Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray to review.
We first tried this product out a few years ago through the travel size bottle (also available on Birchbox) and weren’t initially that impressed. While we definitely saw volume and texture being added to the hair, it wasn’t the sort of style we envisioned. *Something to note – we also had extremely long hair at this point (looking back, we don’t think this is a product for those people)* Besides the way it made our hair feel (gritty and desperately in need of a wash), we couldn’t get over the smell. The smell that everybody loved and raved about was something we couldn’t stand! Ultimately, it was a sad purchase, as the hopes were high and we just couldn’t find a way to work the product.
Fast forward to present day (and a much needed, shorter ‘do) and we have to say we finally understand the hype. We even somehow love the smell now! It’s always interesting to see how your taste evolves over the years and it’s been fun to pick up products we used to dislike and have a newfound love for.
The bottom line? This stuff is great. It’s magically textured hair in a bottle and doesn’t leave your hair feeling crispy or gross. The hefty price tag is a tough pill to swallow, but we honestly think it’s worth it. Though long locked ladies beware, this may not be your friend!
