My Oribe Dry Shampoo Review

 

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.

My Oribe Dry Shampoo ReviewI know you’re probably expecting it to be a classic dry shampoo, but this product is actually a texturizing spray.

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

Producer: Oribe

Price: $22.00

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.

PROs

  • 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

CONS

  • 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…

UNITE 7 Seconds Shampoo and Conditioner Review 1

 

I’ve recently read about quite a new product on our market, a pack of shampoo and conditioner produced by Unite Eurotherapy.

So today it’s time for UNITE 7 Seconds Shampoo and Conditioner review, where I will try to help you get a clear idea whether it’s worth buying or not. After all, we’re not talking about a small amount of money…

UNITE 7 Seconds Shampoo and Conditioner ReviewProduct name: UNITE 7 Seconds Shampoo and Conditioner

Producer: Unite Eurotherapy

Price: $129.99 (or $30 for 8 oz)

Cheapest place to buy: Amazon

Quantity: 1 liter

Mark: 9.80 /10

Worth buying?: Oh yes!

 

What special effects does it promise?


 

Okay, so the first thing each of us do when it comes about choosing a new shampoo is checking what is it for, what it claims to do with your hair and how exactly it tries to help it.

That’s a normal, and that’s exactly what I did in this case.

UNITE 7 Seconds Shampoo and Conditioner ReviewI was expecting to see a shampoo that would promise immediate nourishment, miraculous repair or total disappearance of oily hair. Those were the things crossing my mind, simply because that’s what I’ve been used to see lately in every shampoo or conditioner.

However, UNITE 7 Seconds Shampoo and Conditioner did not promise anything similar, on the contrary, it promised a lot of things but without expanding their importance.

For example, according to the product description, it claims to be a “Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner”, without adding any adjective in the superlative. It’s like it’s not trying to convince you to buy it, just “I’m designed for hair moisturizing, buy me if you want to try me.”

I’m not sure if that’s a right approach in our days, when we are easily attracted by vain words and promises, so this is quite a “frank” product.

However, let’s get to the point, and let me show you what effects it promises to have on your hair:

  • Shine enhancing
  • Protect your hair from UV rays
  • Moisturizing product
  • Thermal damage protection
  • Prevents color from fading
  • Sulfate, paraben and sodium chloride free

As you can see, there are some effects. It’s not like those products that only focus on one effect, regarding which they claim to be the best. No, this product is actually focusing on more beneficial actions for your hair, without claiming to be number one in any.

Just like I said, that’s not a very sure approach, but if you think about it, not bragging about something doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re not the best about that thing…

 

And the price…? God, it’s huge!


 

UNITE 7 Seconds Shampoo and Conditioner ReviewYeah, that’s definitely true. When I first saw the price, I was like “Seriously?!? Who on Earth would pay so much for a pack of a shampoo and a conditioner?”.

That was my first impression, and the one from now isn’t very far either. Yes, it’s true that each bottle has 1 liter, and yes, it’s also true that you pay for both a shampoo and a conditioner, but even so, $130…?

 

So, the best thing we could do would be to calculate.

Okay, so let’s say I want a very high-quality shampoo and conditioner, and obviously high-quality means pretty expensive. Let’s also say that my shampoo would be around $45 and my conditioner around $40. Just an imaginary price.

UNITE 7 Seconds Shampoo and Conditioner ReviewFrom what I’ve seen, the most regular quantity in expensive hair products is around 500 ml (16.9 oz). UNITE 7 Seconds Shampoo and Conditioner both have 1 liter, which is around 33.8 oz. Which means that, if we want to see the difference regarding the price, we have to calculate how much we would pay for a luxurious shampoo and conditioner if it had 1 liter.

If we double the price, we get that we would have to pay around $90 on a 33.8 oz high-quality shampoo and $80 on the conditioner. These would be the normal prices if our products would have 1 liter.

Surprisingly, by summing these 2 prices, we get a total of $170 for 1 bottle of high-quality shampoo and 1 of high-quality conditioner, both at 1 liter. Wow, would you have imagined that at the beginning?

What does this mean?

That the UNITE 7 Seconds Shampoo and Conditioner Pack isn’t even that expensive. After all, it’s 100% organic and after the price I believe it should do every single thing it claims.

So, what do you think, would it be convenient to pay $130 instead of $170? I think it would…

The only possible downside is that you risk to get bored of it, so having 1 liter from a product is probably not the most desirable thing when it comes to hair care.

 

UPDATE March 2017: Now the set is also available in an 8 oz size, for a much smaller amount of money (around $30). The quantity may sound little, but believe me you will absolutely love this conditioner after you try it. And you can buy the 8 oz set first, to use it as a tester. I can guarantee it will become one of your favorite conditioners.

 

Conclusion


 

I’m absolutely in love with this conditioner because it makes my hair much softer than many other expensive products I tried.

And even if the price is a very big downside, there is an 8 oz set available on the market this year. Even if it sounds like a very small quantity, the good news is that you don’t have to apply a lot of product on your hair. I mean, not as much as others because a small quantity is enough to detangle your hair and make it really soft.

So this brand rapidly became one of my favorite when it comes to hair products. For now I only have the shampoo and conditioner, but I plan to get the masque soon (for extra moisturizing). I promise to review it as soon as I try  it. 😀
