After having read all the raves from seemingly everywhere on this product, I was eager to see what it would do to my kinda thin, very fine, oily, straight hair. I have the sort of hair that, if I do nothing to it, clings to my scalp, and my bangs tend to look pretty limp after a few hours.
I'll give the product this: it definitely gave my hair a lot of body and some volume. It looked loads better with this product than when I do nothing to my hair. However, within a few hours of application, my scalp would get really oily. Although I wouldn't lose any volume, my roots would get that piecey look of unwashed hair, even when it wasn't the case. In fact, I could only use this spray when I had washed my hair the night before; when I tried to use it as a dry shampoo, it only made my hair look, and feel, dirtier.
I'd give this a 2.5 stars, given the price and the fact that it didn't do for my hair type what it advertised. Still, since it didn't damage my hair, as many products have, I'll bump it up to a 3 as opposed to down to a 2.
Note: the scent is crazy strong the first time you use it-- so strong that it gave me a headache. It gets less pungent by the second spritz and is actually very pleasant.

I am not one for writing reviews but felt this product was worth the rave. I have long thick dark hair that gets oily and needs washing daily. I recently started using dry shampoo as the styling can take me 40 minutes a day and daily washings dried my hair out. Other dry shampoos either didn't work or left a whitish residue in my hair that felt terrible. Usually used them and threw my hair in a ponytail or bun. (Just so I wouldn't have to touch the weird residue) I went to a salon and the Oribe products were used. I loved the feel of my hair when I left and immediately searched products and reviews. This texturizer came up as a popular item so I decided to shell out more money than i usually do and got the travel size. I'm so glad I did. Gives my hair good oomph , sops up any oil, leaves great scent, and adds this choppy texture that breaks hair up. LOVE it. I also don't have to worry about weird residue or making sure I stay a foot away from my hair to avoid hard to remove white spots. Only downfall is price but worth it to save me two hours a week in extra styling and damage. Will buy full size

If strong fragrances in your hair products aren't your thing then sail right on by this one. It's one of the most powerful scents I've ever come across in a product, and it lingers for at least an hour or so, masking everything else in its path. It eventually fades and leaves a hint of a fresh/non-descript hairspray/floral/bright/chemical type of scent behind but I can't get past it. It's not awful, just very strong. I'm sensitive to smells but even others noticed, which isn't something I want. Too bad because if it the fragrance was softer or in lighter doses I'd really love this. It does a great job adding volume and the kind of light memory hold for tousled waves or a more roughed up look. It doesn't strip my hair of shine like a lot of dry shampoos do or leave a white, powdery residue in the roots, though it does create a more matte appearance. It doesn't eradicate oily roots like a dry shampoo, so mostly I'd say this is good for adding grip and longevity to clean, flat hair, or for adding a little dryness and body to second day hair. I don't like going longer than two days without washing my hair because it's fine and long and tends to look lank or stringy if I try, but once I went three days using this and it looked fantastic still.
The nozzle is easy to grip and control the spray but it's an intense burst of product rather than a light mist that you get in a lot of aerosol sprays so the first time I used it I blasted one spot on my crown a few times and of course it left a weird, slightly tacky residue that no amount of brushing could disguise (which had me pulling it into a tight ponytail for the day since I didn't have time to wash it out and start fresh). For me the best way to use it is a quick spray in a circular motion around the top of my head, then flipping my hair over and spraying a light mist underneath. I rough it up and work it in with my fingers then just style it however. Lots of natural volume. Even after I sleep on it my hair holds its style well and still feels clean. But that smell!
I'm not a fan of dry shampoos because they often irritate my scalp and I dislike the lifeless cast they can leave behind, but I love the idea of them. So this being a kind of hybrid product really appealed to me. I hope I can find something similar because this is going back. I would recommend it though if you don't mind a noticeable scent in your hair.

The jury is still out for me on this spray. Overall, I like soft, (run your fingers thru it) hair and this product does the opposite. I think if you have very flat hair it may be helpful in creating a specific style, but it makes my hair course, dull and dirty feeling. It's like a mix of a powder and a wax. You can easily spray too much and have very dirty hair. I'll play with the spray a little more, but so far, I'd not by it again.

Ugh. Whatever this is supposed to do, it does not. No matter how I spray it (wet hair, dry hair, lots, little, dirty hair, clean, spray near, spray far) I just get stiff, limp noodles of hair. I do not know what I am doing wrong. And given the smell of this, I don't care anymore. It smells incredibly cheap, like a particular corporation's air freshener, and the smell is potent and does not dissipate during the day. It got one lippie since it didn't make my scalp itch or break out.

Once you learn how to use this, it is a respectable option for adding body to fine hair. But I can't get past the powerful fragrance that sadly lingers forever. I can't recall the last time a product's odor so turned me off - and I don't think I've ever stopped using anything because of its scent - but this is such a problem for me. And possibly anyone in proximity. If it was a wonder product, I'd find a way to justify the fragrance problem for myself. But it isn't. There are some other dry shampoos (e.g. Bedhead RockStar) that offer similar results and much better texturizers. So I'll work my way through the giant aerosol can and hope a good wind catches my hair to knock out the scent.

I was hesitant in buying this because of the steep price tag, but honestly it's a miracle product. I have naturally wavy/curly hair. When I straighten it, I can go almost 5 days without washing it because of this spray. If it's curly, I spray some on the roots, play with it a bit and voila. It's worth every single penny. Buy the travel size first if you're wanting to try it out, then buy the full size if you like it.

Another winner from Oribe. LOVE the apres wave beach spray. I have used this wet and dry on my very long, thick but sparse blonde hair. Sprayed on wet hair it works as a root lift and gives me gorgeous hair. Because it's technically a dry shampoo, the volume stays for a couple of days. (I wash every other.) On dry hair it gives tremendous oomph and never looks white or chalky. LOVE IT!!! I ordered mine from Birchbox and used points so it was practically free. Price is not too bad as I go through a can like every 6-7 months so it's not a big deal to me. The can is enourmous which stinks when traveling but I'll take it as that puffy, fluffy look is so important to me! Must try!

I like using this after I've styled my hair to give it a little texture. I flip my head over and spray throughout lightly, and to add volume, I spray on with the hair dryer lightly blowing at the same time. This works really well to keep the product light on the hair as it can dry out your hair if you use too much. I noticed that a day after I can just tousle my hair with my fingers and the product helps liven up my style again. You can't use this too often as it will dry out your hair. I apply this after Oribe's humidity spray as well.

All I can say is a "MUST HAVE" product.

I love this spray. Gives my limp hair loads of volume. A bit pricey yet totally worth it. Doesn't leave my hair sticky at all and smells yummy. Don't know how I styled my hair before I discovered it :D

Fabulous product for long fine hair. Slightly powdery mist that is easy to direct at roots, easy to apply, easy to adjust amount that dispenses. Adds grip and hold at the roots. Maximizes the volume from not much backcombing. Hold lasts all day. Hair looks big, full and fabulous. Would absolutely repurchase and recommend for fine hair.

Super Expensive but worth it. You can make this product last if you only use it sparingly like I do. I only use it for weekends when I want big fun hair or if I want to skip washing my hair during the week and spray it while I am getting ready for work.
Smells wonderful and is great to spray into your roots before backcombing or teasing for volume. Way better then any kind of drugstore dry shampoo.
It doesn't leave any powdery color on your hair which is important to me since I am brunette.

First, I will say that I am a fan of Oribe products: I adore the Signature Shampoo/Conditioner and I also have the Styling Creme in my collection. I bought this spray when it was recommended to me by a Space NK agent. I didn't really want it but I was feeling impressionable, so I picked it up. It's kinda disappointing. I have fine hair and love volume. Supposedly this spray says it helps with volume but honestly, I think it just smells nice. Like another reviewer, my hair fell flat in a matter of seconds. Come to think of it, it never really lifted my hair much more than fluffing my hair by itself did. Not much of a gravity fighter. It just makes my roots a little stiff without the oomph. But it does smell nice! Oribe products smell the best.
I'm setting my sights on Sachajuan Volume Powder next.

I have lots of baby fine hair, so I will try just about anything to get volume and unfortunately, I wasted a lot of money on this. I should have known better, because I watched Oribe's video on YouTube (just search 'Oribe' and his demo videos come up) and didn't think it did a lot for his hair model! If you spray a LOT of product in your hair and tease it, you will get volume, but only if you like the messy look and it does not stay full. Mine fell flat in less than 10 minutes and my hair is only chin length! l found that the finish dulled the shine on my hair somewhat and because the product is loaded with alcohol, it was a bit drying. The scent is very pretty, but turn on the bathroom fan before you start spraying - I had a haze floating around me and it can't be good to be breathing the fine mist directly into your lungs. If you really want to try it, get the purse size - it has a quarter of the product, but if you don't like it, you're only out $20 instead of $40 (plus shipping and taxes for those of us who have to order online).

Great volume product, love it. It's expensive but worth it.

I can't believe this hasn't been reviewed yet. I love this spray. My stylist has been raving about it for months and it seems to suit my needs perfectly - tons of volume and texture for my fine hair, but without any nasty feeling of product overload. I was hesitating because it is VERY expensive for a styling product, but now I realise that I need this since it's the best texturizer I've come across and it's worth the money since it's the only styling product I'll need. Much, much better than other products that claim to be the same mix of volume and dry shampoo (Oscar Blandi).
It claims to be an alternative to dry shampoo, but I don't think it delivers in that category. I've got really greasy hair if I don't wash every day, so I still need a regular dry shampoo like Klorane to absorb oil. Maybe it works fine on not so oily scalps. BUT, as a styling aid this is fabolous. Contains moisturizing ingredients and UV protection too.
