oribe sprays

Oribe Apres Beach Spray Oribe Dry Texturising Spray review swatch photo
Oribe Apres Beach Spray: £33
Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray: £38

When I was in Space NK buying these with my friend, I could literally see the look of horror on his face as I silentedly handed over my card to the ridicilous total that was presented to me when I bought these. Right off the bat lets get this out the way, these are bloomin' pricey. Like next level expensive aka you know you shouldnt buy these at all because the price is so high. While I personally think they are 100% worth it, They are ridiculously expensive. Now thats been delt with, onto the actual products.

My hair is flat, long, limp and umanagable at best. Most hairspray and texurising spray just don't seem to make a huge amount of difference, and tend to look alright for the first hour and then my hair is back how I started. I bought a travel can of the Oribe Texturizing Spray a few months ago and noticed a huge difference in how my hair was sitting. It looked fluffier and more texturised, especially when I wear my hair straight (ie. most of the time, I'm lazy!) It's like a dry shampoo hairspray hybrid but without any of the tackiness or stickiness. It's a very matte, undone finish that leaves a sort of "dirty" texture behind. But I like that kind of finish on my hair, the more bedhead looking the better. I love spraying it into my roots too add volume and refresh them slightly. I had only planned to buy that when I went in that day but I decided to get the Oribe Apres Beach Spray as well. I'd read a few raves about it and thought meh what the hell. I tend to apply it to both wet and dry hair. It's essentially a salt spray but not so wet. It doesnt leave and crunchiness behind or leave my hair feeling like a dry tangled mess. It adds so much texture, grip and body to my hair, something that I struggle so much to get. It It makes styling so much easier as it gives something for my freshly washed hair to grip on to. I use this pretty much daily these days and I have no qualms with it at all. It leaves my hair looking exactly how I like it without having to wait 2 days for it to get a bit messier!

Expensive and probably not one for everyone but these are perfect for my hair and I've been really happy with it since adding them both to my regular hair routine. Fluffy, volumised hair that lasts all day. Yes please. Just ignore that price tag... cough.

  1. These do sound amazing, especially the beach spray but I just couldn't bring myself to spend that much on a hair spray! xx

  6. I have considered buying these before as I would love that texturised volumey finish to my hair which is naturally really straight and flat! Although the pricetag has put me off buying them asap I will still probably part with my cash at some point and give them a go because I don't really mind paying a lot for something that works, although I don't think I could buy them both at once!

  14. I just bought the travel size of the Apres Beach Spray whilst in the Space N.K. satellite at Bloomingdales, NYC...I love it! The smell is terrific and what it does to my hair...well, I don't have to tell you! LOL I'm afraid now I'll have to buy the full size here in Toronto...which I think runs about $40 CND! I also saw an interestig spray in Sephora yesterday from Bumble&Bumble...I don't recall the name but it was a texturizing hairspray...something along those line...I sprayed a bit into my hair and the texture was great, it added some oompfff definitely...but it's also $37.
    Cheers, Lisa

  16. Aaah I've heard good things about these, but I doubt I'm ever likely to invest. They may be amazing, but I'm scared of falling in love with them and starting an expensive habit!

  18. Damn that price tag, they sounds so good though, I bought a beach spray from the drugstore the other day and it didn't make the slight bit of difference to my hair so I may need to splurge on these :p xx Emmi

  23. These sound great and like they'd be ideal for my hair but I just don't think I could bring myself to spend that much! Maybe one day when I'm rich, aha.

  25. I've wanted to get an Oribe spray but there's no way I could currently justify the price tag. I can't hide that kinda spend from my boyfriend. ;) xo

  26. Price tag aside, they do sound amazing, and if you have fine hair- then why not?

  28. I've heard Oscar Blandi’s Texture & Volume Spray is a pretty quality dupe of these ;) it's a smidge cheaper (bout a tenner less?) but I'm hearing good things.
