Love this product! Makes it possible for my fine hair to look full & glorious & helps hold a style (for two days I might add!) .

I do not care for the scent because it lingers (until you rewash ime). I never like to smell anything but my perfume, so this is an issue for me, but won't stop me from using this for special occasions. The price tag is fairly hefty & it can be difficult to locate in person.

Personally, I think it is so much better to invest in a good haircut rather than in this smallish can of something exorbitantly expensive and not that necessary in my everyday routine.

A couple words of explanation: I have short hair (and by short I mean TRUE SHORT hair, not what magazines and bloggers call short - it is a little longer than Jean Seberg's haircut in Breathless, plus my hair is wavy and thin so to get any shape I need predominantly 1. a great haircut 2. some styling product and in that order) that needs some grit and texture in it to keep it away from my scull, otherwise my nose gets more attention that it needs ;)

Imho this Oribe product is decent but it might have more of an impact on people with bob/lobs rather than truly short hair like mine. The smell is pleasant but for example Toni and Guy's or L'Oreal products also have a very pleasant smell, practically the same effect on my hair and are much cheaper.

What I like about it is a strong jet of thin spray (what are we breathing in here actually?!) and that a small can (still £19!) lasts quite a long time with everyday use but I will not frivolously spend that much on a product that is not a staple in my routine when I am not a well paid blogger ;)

Absolute miracle.....I just started using this about a month ago and I don't know how I lived without it. I have naturally curly hair and invested in a Harry Josh Hair Dryer and that has saved me hours and hours of styling so now I just blow my hair dry and use this spray and my hair looks great for days....I re-apply it a couple of more days before I wash it (every 5 days) and my hair looks great every day. I have even skipped using the flat iron daily because my hair just behaves. I don't find the smell to be anything offensive so don't know where that is coming from....I am very sensitive to strong smells and this is fine. I have to say that I am hooked on Batiste Dry Shampoo blonde so I use that daily and then use this for the texture and volume.

I wish I didn't like this, because hair products are usually the one part of my routine that I scrimp on, but I have to admit it's worth the hype. When used properly, it gives messy, bedhead volume to my pin straight hair, and oftentimes I can get the look to last for days. I have to be sure to spray it from the right distance because if I get too close, it gives my roots a tacky feel, and if I'm too far away I feel like it won't "grab on" properly. Given the astronomical price, I want to be sure to NEVER waste it.

I can't pinpoint the scent exactly, but it definitely smells more sophisticated than any drugstore product I've used. The scent WILL stay on your hair though, so if you're sensitive to smells that's something to keep in mind.

I am not a fan of the scent. This would be good in a pinch for volume at the crown & a wee bit of texture (grit) elsewhere. But I can't use this daily as it will start ti leave your hair feeling too gritty & dirty. So yes....it is nice to have. No, I can't use it on a regular basis. Hot rollers give my fine wavy locks more lift & life than this. I doubt I would repurchase especially at its ridiculous price. If it were a drugstore price, I might keep a small bottle around.

Okay, so I haven't used this in a while, but I remember from when I DID own it, I loved the smell, but wasn't sure if it was actually doing anything to my hair. I do remember it having that fun, messy look, but it didn't seem to stick throughout the day. My hair is VERY fine and thin/wispy, so I have to be cautious with every product that I put in my hair. Maybe I'll try this again soon.

I cringe everytime I buy this, but I have to say it is worth every penny. I've tried so many drugstore and cheaper texturizing products, and this tops them all. I have very course Asian straight hair that is very hard to texturize without being weighed down, and this works perfectly. I have shoulder length hair that loses volume at the crown sometimes, and a little spray at the roots makes my hair come to life. I also like to spray random strands and then just tease my hair with my hands so it looks a little 'lived in.' Dry shampoos don't come anywhere close to giving my hair the texture I need, despite it also being a spray product. I'm not one to buy expensive hair products, but I will be purchasing this over and over. The scent is a little strong, but it doesn't bother me too much.

Yuck! I purchased the small purse size can of this, and glad I did. I was only out $25.00 instead of $42.00. First of all the smell. I can't put my finger on it, but I smelled this before. It is a really strong floral fragrance that smells cheap and lasts all day. That's not a good thing either.
I have short hair with a lot of layers that I like to have some structure. I was hoping this product would help with that. I could not even get the product to come out of the can. I kept squeezing the top, and finally got some to come out.
It comes out like a dry shampoo, and did nothing to help hold up my layers. It might be good for oily hair, but I have dry hair. It did nothing for my hair except make it smell bad for the better part of the day.

This is my favourite texturizing spray.
My natural hair is thick and straight (asian hair), and I've tried many products when it comes to volume and texture, trying to find the ones that would actually keep my hair looking volumized/adds texture that lasts throuhout the day.

This really gives you the Victoria's Secret texture look, and it also adds some volume to my thick/straight hair. If you want the full-on look, I would recommend using this together with Oribe's Surfcomber mousse as well.

I really like that this product doesn't contain any sodium chloride (such as lots of texturizing sprays may do), so it doesn't damage or dry out the hair. Sure it's oh so-expensive, but you get what you pay for. People have recommended the Sebastian texturizer to me, but Oribe's is just so much better, and actually gives you that perfectly tossled look, without damaging your hair in the process.

Even though my hair is quite dark (black/brown) ish, this doesn't leave any white-powdered marks. Also, the hair still feels soft with the product in, and you don't get that stiff/chalky feeling.

So, to add up:
Great texture, some volume, no sodium chloride, amazing scent, soft hair that you actually can comb through, and it leaves no white marks.

I give this 4/5, the only con being that it really didn't give me that much volume.
