Hey guys, in this post I want to tell you about a really cool product that I started using just a few months ago, but it soon got on my list of “favorite products”. So, here’s my Oribe Dry Shampoo Review. 😀
I’ve been planning to review this great spray for a long period, but time hasn’t been on my side lately, so I can only do it now.
So why do I call it a shampoo? Why did I actually name this post “My Oribe Dry Shampoo Review”?
Because I use it mainly as a dry shampoo rather than a volumizing spray and I’m extreeemely satisfied with it! So much that I consider it almost exclusively a dry shampoo…
Anyway, you don’t have to do the same, it’s actually an amazing volume product so you can use it as such, but in my review I will try to focus more on the “dry shampoo” part. That’s because many people asked me about this Oribe spray as a dry shampoo, so I guess they are more interested in this.
So let’s not make it any longer and begin. 😀
Product name: Dry Texturizing Spray
Cheapest place to buy: Amazon
Mark: 9.70 /10
These are the general facts everyone should know about this product, plus one thing. The price seems pretty good, as $22 isn’t a big deal after all, is it? 🙂 But the problem is that the quantity is just 2.2 ounces, which is quite little. 🙁
The good news is that there is also a 8.5 ounces size, which would last enough months. But…there is also a but; the price for this size is $44, which isn’t very little…
Anyway, we’ll talk more about this a bit later, for now all I want to say is that, in case you got scared by the big price it has, you should know it’s the only bad thing I found about it.
And if I gave it 9.70 out of 10 as a mark, this means I really really like it, right? 😀
Now let me show you more clearly which are the does and dont’s of this Oribe spray. And once again, I will try to focus first on the “dry shampoo” part and only secondly on the “spray” part.
It manages to clean dirty scalp easily, even if you apply a very little quantity like 3-4 sprays
No marks: you won’t get any white hairs or spots in the places where you added the spray, because it gets absorbed easily and also pretty fast
I love that my hair doesn’t feel like when I would add hairspray (although as a texture, this spray is similar to a hairspray). It actually seems and feels pretty soft, not harsh as I expected
You can use it any time your hair gets greasy. In my case, it’s a great option when I don’t want to wash my hair twice a week because I apply it and my roots aren’t oily anymore (I have curly hair, that’s true, but even so it’ s pretty good achievement)
Another useful tip is that you don’t need a high quantity of product every time you use it, a few sprays a enough to make the greasiness do away. Of course, it also depends of your hair’s thickness and volume, but overall you don’t need too much
It’s a great product for straight and oily hair, as it manages to make the impossible and give it a lot of volume that lasts
So overall I really recommend it to anyone who needs a high-quality dry shampoo and a volumizing product all in one
The price is definitely the biggest downside I could find. I guess it is so high because the quality is also very high itself, so they somehow have to compensate. But you should keep in mind that you’re saving a pretty good amount of money if you buy the 8.5 oz size instead of the 2.2 oz one
It only ships within the US, no other countries are available 🙁
Below you can see this Oribe shampoo, in both versions: the 2.2 oz size and the 8.5 oz one. Also, the second time I bought this shampoo I decided to listen to the advice of several people and get the conditioner and mositurizing creme together with it. And I didn’t regret it.
So I also added them here, you can click on each if you want to get a better idea about them.
Meanwhile, I will try to tell you more about the Oribe dry shampoo: how it works, what other things it does besides cleaning my hair and other things of this type. So keep reading! 🙂
How it helps me when I get oily hair
Okay, I won’t pretend I’m a specialist about this, all I can tell you is how I use this spray. And I see really good results, so I guess it’s the right way. 🙂
So let me explain you how it makes my oily hair look better and how it can do the same with yours, even if you have naturally greasy hair.
In one of my previous posts I showed you 7 steps for a faster hair growth, and if you remember, one of them was using a special oil that will stimulate your hair’s roots. I use Castor oil, and have been doing so for several months, because the results are pretty visible.
But that’s not what I want to talk about now.
The problem with Castor oil is that you should apply it a few times a week in order to see these results you want, and if you do this, your hair will always look very very oily. That’s how mine looks after I apply it. And that’s where the good part comes.
This Oribe shampoo is the perfect solution in this situation. And don’t misunderstand me, it’s not like it would clean your hair completely and make it look perfect right after you applied the oil. I wish I could tell you it is so, but it’s not.
However, it manages to make my hair look much better and way less greasier than normal. And by this I want to say that I afford to go out of the house without being ashamed. I just apply it at my roots a few minutes after I applied the oil and boom!…my hair looks a bit more normal.
Now it’s true that my hair is curly and normally it’s not greasy at all. So you’re probably wondering “Would this work for a naturally oily hair?”.
My answer is YES, it would. It’s exactly the same thing, except that I add the oil on my scalp manually and in your hair it’s automatically produced (but in a lower quantity :D). So this means that you have even bigger chances of success.
Just add a few sprays on your scalp, making sure you applied it all over, and you’ll see the difference in a few minutes. For now it’s the best solution I can give to people who have greasy hair, because this spray really makes miracles in this case.
Don’t forget about the “volume booster” effect
I know that’s a common problem of people with oily hair, that try to hard to get the volume they want by so many ways (back-combing, blow-drying or so many other things) and it’s still in vain. I have many friends in this situation, and in the last months I’ve been recommending them exclusively this spray.
I can’t really explain how it does it, but it manages to give volume even to very flat hair, that is normally extremely straight and thin. It sometimes surprises me, especially after many of my friends bought it at my recommendation and they’re really satisfied with it.
So although I chose to review it as a dry shampoo (because I used it as such), you should keep in mind that it’s first a volumizing spray, and only after a dry shampoo. Most people use it as a volume booster, actually.
And if they’re so satisfied with it as a volume booster, I guess it’s not just my impression. 🙂
If I recommend it? Yes, despite the high price, I do
I know it’s not extremely easy for everyone to buy a shampoo of 8.5 ounces that costs $44, I am perfectly aware of this. But this doesn’t stop me from recommending it.
In my opinion, it’s the best product you could use as a dry shampoo. It has a great quality, it doesn’t leave any marks and it cleanses the scalp correctly and completely. That’s basically what I need from a dry shampoo. Plus that it gives a great volume, so that’s an extra advantage. 😉
So if you ask me, I say it’s worth buying. Even if you think it’s a bit expensive, I’m sure you can make a sacrifice and not go out one night, in order to buy this product. Yeah, I know that this thing with going out isn’t the best example, but you get my point 😛
That’s my honest opinion…
