By sheer principle, I haven't taken the plunge and bought the famed Oribe Dry Texturising spray. I know, I know I've heard all the amazing things too, but the amount of hair I have and the amount I would use I think it just isn't cost effective. So, these past few months I've been on the hunt for something a little more purse friendly which does a similar thing, and I thought I'd share my findings! Emma has already reviewed V05's offering - which you can read here.
This I bought because I needed a dry shampoo ASAP and I started work in 15 minutes. Some dry shampoos give the added oomph of volume anyway, but this one is particularly formulated for even more volume. I found when I used this though, it did give me volume but also that windswept and interesting look and a bit of life to my greasy locks. This is primarily a dry shampoo - don't forget that - and you will need a hairspray to hold the look in, but the next time you need to stock up on a dry shampers, maybe splurge the extra pound and see if this does anything for you.
This one I've got to admit, I wasn't that impressed with it. Right after styling it looked nice but I found it fell out rather quickly in comparison to others I tried. I must admit I tried solely the spray and not the other products in the texture range, and this may have performed better in conjunction with the other products. On it's own I just found it a bit nothingy!
This is the personal favourite of mine out of the bunch, and it even found itself a place in my April Favourites. It makes everything piecey and beachy and lovely and it stays that way too. I find even with the copious amounts of hair that I have, I don't need to use too much which is a massive bonus. A day at the beach in a can, but minus the sunburn.
This is a close second to the Charles Worthington version, it adds lift to the roots and texture to the ends and smells really nice too. The only place where this falls short is in order to keep the style the way you like it, you need to use another product, as on it's own it gives you a few hours before you need a top up!
I've definitely found a purse friendly alternative for me for now, maybe some point in the future I'll be possessed to buy the real deal, but I am perfectly happy with what Boots is currently offering up. I am however inching closer to Oribe's Surfcomber Mousse and Bumble & Bumble's Surf Shampoo for the ultimate summer hair - we'll see how long I can hold off before caving and splurging on those two.
Have you tried the Oribe Dry Texturising Spray?
