Premium hair brand, Oribe quick became my favourite hair brand of all time sometime last year. The range packs a serious punch in the hair stakes and is full of gems that I can't live without. I think I'd happily just use Oribe products on my hair for the rest of my life. Despite it’s hefty price tag, there is no doubting the quality and the fact that these products just work for me. I do tear up paying £30 for a glorified dry shampoo sometimes. The brand is whole heartedly the best thing for my giving my hair the look I like. I've tried a ton of products over the years, but nothing has lived up to these.

My love affair started when I invested in a can of the Oribe Dry Texturising Spray. It gives a beachy matte texture which gives volume that lasts. I cannot live without this product, if I recommend one product from Oribe then I'd definitely invest in this one. Three cans later, and I'm hooked. The next item I bought was the Apres Beach Spray, which is like a dry salt spray. This gives my hair a dishevelled dirty, beachy texture, which I personally like although I know it's not to every ones taste. Then there is the Oribe Thickening Spray - a next level pre blow dry treatment. A seriously hair-raising, super volumizing product. Despite my love for it when used incorrectly can leave my hair looking a bit 80's. I spray a good amount of pumps into the roots and blast with a hair dryer forest results!

The latest edition to my Oribe club is the Oribe Surfcomber Mousse. Forget everything you know about mousse, this is literally on another level.  I've been using this to give my hair volume pre-blow-dry. Scrunched into wet hair, it makes my hair big without  that old fashioned, dry crisp mousse feeling. A must for long bob length, poker straight hair like mine who needs a little oomph pre styling. It adds the beachiness of sea salt spray and the boost of mousse. What more could a gal want?

In all, I friggin love this brand, I don't see my love slowing down. Premium haircare was something I was never hugely fussed on until recently. Oribe has totally revamped my hair styling routine, and I finally feel like my hair looks the way I've always wanted it to look!
Have you tried anything from Oribe?


  1. I've heard so much about the Dry Texturising Spray! It's just so pricey I don't know if I can be parted with the money…apparently Charles Worthington do an amazing dupe though, I've have to check that one out instead.
    Great post.

  2. If you say a dry shampoo is worth £30 it probably is :) Might have to treat myself to a can!

  3. I love the look of Oribe but just haven't managed to part with the money yet, although the thickening spray sounds just what I'm after. I tried the Charles Worthington dupe for the Texturising Spray recently and loved it though, so might stick with that for the time being x

  4. I couldn't agree more regarding Oribe's mousse being on another level. I ♥ it, I want to gift one & receive one! ;)

  5. Oh my gosh these look so lovely they're just a tiny bit pricey.
    Your hair is so gorgeous though so it must work ;)

  8. What do you think if their shampoos/conditioners? I always found them to be really heavy and they made my hair lank!! ;(

    1. i haven't tried them, I've used the colour mask which I liked but wouldn't recommend because that is RIDIUCLOUSLY overpriced!

  9. Between you and ghost parties I am holding your opinions countable for my obsession with the stuff! But in other words thanks it my favourite luxury hair product and compared to other items in the range doesn't break the bank :)

  10. Oh I am trying so hard to get my paws on the Dry Texturising Spray. I am so excited to try it! If it's anything like the Bumble and Bumble Dryspun, I will love it. And if it's better? Excellent.

  11. I wish they were more affordable, if they were I'd have the whole range!

  17. Everybody is talking about Oribe these times but the price tag is definitely too much for my little student's pockets! What a sad life I live!

  18. I honestly have the longest Oribe wish list after reading so many blog posts on certain products. If only I could afford it all! One of these days I'll take the plunge for the dry texturizing spray. Thanks for sharing your picks!

  26. I can't seem to find Oribe products anywhere here :( I really want to try some

  27. I'm a big fan of the Dry Texturising Spray for the morning after I washed my hair - just the right amount of sexy messy texture without looking like you literally just rolled out of a rough night in bed! I tried the Maximista but strangely it didn't do anything for me volume-wise, it just ended up seriously drying my hair out (probably the alcohol). I'll try one of the dupes for the texturising spray once I run out just because it's a bit expensive for me to repurchase!

  28. I don't think I'd ever spend that much on hair care, but maybe I should start investing in it... ?

  29. These look good- are they worth the price? I am always weary of expensive brands and are they worth the money?


  30. I HAVE to try the dry texturising spray!

  31. I really want to try the Oribe spray, my hair is so fine so it needs loads of 'oomph'

  32. OB-sessed with Oribe!! I love the maximister and the dry texturizing spray - 2 must-haves for long flat hair!!
