Volume Sprays: Oribe v Charles Worthington

I have very fine flat hair so am always on the lookout for products to add volume and texture to my hair.

The first volumising spray I tried was the Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray. I was very intrigued, and had very high expectations for this after hearing so many beauty bloggers rave about it and I have to say, it definitely met my expectations.

This spray really is magical. I have no idea how it works but it feels like you’re pumping air into your hair when you spray this. It really lifts and adds lots and lots of volume. This product feels very luxurious, has a lovely scent, and gives your hair a very soft and fluffy texture. It makes your hair feel weightless, like there’s nothing in it and the volume lasts a really, really long time too. I absolutely love this product and would love to have endless supplies of it, however it is very pricey!

This is the reason why I decided to try out a cheaper alternative, and bought the Charles Worthington Volume & Bounce Texturising Spray. This spray isn’t quite the same as the Oribe spray and gives a different kind of look, but I really love this spray too. It adds a lot of volume to my hair which lasts for hours, just like the Oribe, but it gives a different type of texture and feels very different in my hair. It gives more of a gritty, texturised look and feels slightly hard and crispy in your hair, but I don’t mind this when I’m going for a messier, backcombed look.

I would use the Oribe on both freshly washed hair to add volume and texture, and on greasy hair as a dry shampoo, however I wouldn’t with the Charles Worthington spray as I think it’s less of a dry shampoo and more of a gritty, texturising spray. I think both these sprays are great to have in your collection as they both are very different. I would save the more luxurious Oribe spray for special occasions or when going for more sophisticated, softer styles but think the Charles Worthington spray is great for everyday use to add volume and texture to your hair.

Have you tried either of these sprays? What did you think?
