02 Jan Oribe Dry Texturising Spray. A bit of luxury for your hair but does it do all they claim?
What is it? Oribe Dry Texturising Spray is a multi-tasking spray. It’s not a dry shampoo as such, but it absorbs the oil at the roots of the hair leaving it fresh and clean and it smells amazing. It also gives volume and lift at the roots, has colour protecting properties and helps defend against UV rays. There is no powdery residue. It does not contain parabens or sodium chloride.
What’s in it? I’ve used Oribe’s own descriptions as they cover it all….
Oribe Signature Complex (Watermelon, Lychee and Edelweiss Flower Extracts) defends hair from oxidative stress, photo-aging and the deterioration of natural keratin, all while protecting from the drying, damaging and color-depleting effects of the elements.
Zeolite Crystallines behave like tiny sponges to absorb and trap dirt, oils and odors.
Kiwi and Passion Flower Extracts deliver antioxidants more powerful than those found in green tea. They help to maintain moisture balance and protect color.
Ginger Root Extract, derived from Hawaiian White Ginger, promotes circulation, adds shine, and softens hair.
Mango Extract, rich in antioxidants and vitamins, hydrates, smoothes, and nourishes the hair.
A Unique Copolymer Blend allows hairstyles to hold longer.
Sunflower Seed Extract delivers incredible shine while providing color protection.
Humectants add shine and body while repairing damaged hair.
Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein conditions and renews damaged hair, adding body and shine.
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract hydrates, smoothes, and nourishes hair.
How do you use it? Instructions are to spray into the roots of dry hair, or in any areas where you want more volume.
What’s the damage? £41.00 for 300ml
You know those products that you hear about as being a “beauty must have” but the price just puts you off – well this is one of them. Oribe Dry Texturising Spray has won beauty awards from the likes of InStyle, Brides Magazine and Glamour, it’s consistently on the must have lists in the glossy magazines, but even though I’ve paid more for a product it just seems a lot for a hair texturising spray. However, as you age your hair needs all the help it can get (well mine does) and after reading the ingredients list with all the benefits I decided to have an early Christmas present and ordered a bottle from SpaceNK online.
The first time I used the spray was after drying my hair, I was going to a Christmas Party and wanted some volume. I was completely underwhelmed with the results. I sprayed the product onto my roots but it had no effect at all apart from the smell which is delicious. I thought perhaps it wasn’t good on newly dried hair so I tried it a couple of days later and there was some volume but it disappeared after a few minutes. I’ve seen people use this spray on YouTube videos and it really seems to work so what was I doing wrong? My hair is short and has some highlights, maybe it works better on longer hair?
When my daughter arrived home for Christmas she went through all my products and the Oribe spray was the first one she wanted to use. She has long, fairly thick hair and sprayed the product on, puffed up her hair with her hands and looked like she’d just walked out of a West End Salon, an hour later her hair still looked fabulous!
So what’s my conclusion about the product? I’ve seen the evidence that it works, it just doesn’t work on me.
