The Best Of Haircare - Oribe


I, first heard of Oribe through the ever so typical place you call the internet. It is a cult brand within YouTube and the blogosphere. Of course, it is a brand I've been extremely curious to try, from the luxe packaging to the detailing of how each product works and how fast it has become a favourite to many. You all know by now that I love a good brand that has impeccable ingredients within their products and Oribe is exactly that!

The *Dry Texturizing Spray was the number one product I had to try from Oribe, I picked up the 300ml size last year from a hair salon in Melbourne. I'm pretty sure this is their best seller, and there is no surprise that it is. When I was kindly sent these Oribe products to trial (Dry Texturizing Spray 75ml, Maximista Thickening Spray and Supershine Moisturizing Cream), I was so excited and couldn't wait to start using them.

I've found in the past other texturising sprays have either weighed my hair down or made it feel crispy or oily — which isn't great for my fine thin hair. And lets face it, texturising sprays are so expensive to be faffing around with finding the best one! I am not much of a hair fanatic like some others out there. I have a range of cult favourites within my collection, however I have found not many products work well on my hair so I am quite picky when it comes to certain haircare products. For my hair type I like to use as little product as I can.

The dry texturising spray is perfect for giving my hair texture, volume as well as a light lift within my roots all while keeping it soft and manageable. It also absorbs a bit of oil and dirt within the scalp, but I wouldn't consider it a "dry shampoo". Comparing this to other brands I've used, Oribe is definitely high up there to the rest. I wouldn't want to use anything else after using this spray. The small purse size *75ml is the perfect travel companion and I like to keep this in my handbag for touch ups and emergencies!

  • Dry Texturizing Spray ingredients — Kiwi and Passion Flower, Ginger Root, Mango, Sunflower Seed, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extracts and much more!


The great thing about haircare is that most brands have categories of what type of hair you have to cater towards each range, so it isn't too hard to find one that you can try out. For myself the *Maximista Thickening Spray is another product I was very pleased with. I cannot stress enough how much I shun away from thickening sprays, although they are catered to thin hair I have found so many of these types of products to do the complete opposite to my hair, leaving it flat and that horrible feeling of having a tone of product stuck in your hair, isn't so glamorous.

Enter the Oribe Maximista! I am in love with this product! It doesn't feel like anything when you spray it onto your hair, I like to use it right after I have washed and towel dried my hair. I spritz a few pumps around my hair and roots and blow dry, which activates the product well and absorbs into the hair perfectly. It makes my hair feel a lot thicker, smooth with a tone of volume.

  • Maximista Thickening Spray ingredients — Copolymers, Keratin Amino Acids, Multilayered UV Protection and much more!


Lastly, the product that ties it all together is the *Supershine Moisturizing Cream. For my thin hair, comes dry ends and I need all the moisturising cream to keep it hydrated and soft. This hasn't been much of a hassle for me to find, there seems to be a lot more of these types of products around that I have found to work nicely on my hair. I don't enjoy many oils, creams work a lot better for my hair. Most hair oils can be a hit and miss for me, I am just not fond of the feeling it leaves to the ends of my hair and there is no way I would put the any close to my roots. Creams seem to absorb a lot better and leave a nice shine and soft feeling to the ends of my hair and I can put it close to my roots and it doesn't weigh it down.

  • Supershine Moisturizing Cream ingredients — Soy Protein, Wheat Amino Acids, Mooring Seed Extracts (Vitamins A & C), Keratin, Kaempferia Galanga Root Extracts, Vegetable Derived Protein and Glycerin


From the beautiful packaging to the amazing quality of each product, there is one more stand out I absolutely adore is the scent from each product. They smell A-MAZ-ING! The Oribe Signature Complex — Watermelon, Lychee and Eldeweiss Flower Extract. It has come to my conclusion that from each product I have tried from Oribe, there hasn't been one that I don't enjoy. Oribe has quickly taken over any other product I've tried from other brands. I am now on the hunt for my next product to try from their range, so please give me your recommendations!
