Review of Texturizing Sprays

 Hello friends! I hope you had a nice weekend. Today I am kicking off the week with a review that has been a long time in the making. I have slowly but surely been making my way through some of the top rated texturizing sprays and am here to share my reviews. 

My hair has a pretty fine texture to it and I often feel like it could benefit from a little extra "oomph", or volume. Due to being such a fine texture, it also gets oily faster. Even on day 1 clean hair I used to spray some dry shampoo in my hair to prevent it from getting oily faster. I told my hairdresser this and she said "oooh you need to try a texturizing spray. It soaks up the oil but also gives the hair some volume too." That sounded like it was exactly what I needed. Another benefit of texturizing spray is that it doubles as a dry shampoo without changing the color of your hair. One of my good friends is a brunette and often complains about dry shampoo leaving that white residue in her hair. This would be perfect if you have darker hair and don't want the white residue from a dry shampoo.

So my hairdresser convinced me to start with the Oribe and I LOVED it! I used it exclusively for a year or two. Fast forward a bit and Shay had recommended the DryBar spray. I grabbed the sample size, tested it out, and liked that one too. Now I am on the hunt to see if there are other great ones out there worth buying. Here are the 4 I have tried so far and my reviews:

Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray

Cost: $49 for an 8.5 oz bottle. This is the one I had originally been using for years and loved. It has a light smell, a great hold, and gives your hair some grit without being too gritty. I felt this one held up the longest and could last almost the whole day. I give this one 5 stars.

DryBar TripleSec

Cost: $29 for a 4.2 oz bottle. This one has a great smell to it, and the lightest finish if you're looking for less of a gritty feel. In my opinion the lighter finish meant it didn't last nearly as long, but depending on your hair texture maybe that's a good thing? I give this one 4 stars.

IGK Beach Club

Cost: $31 for a 5 oz bottle. This one gave my hair the most volume and thickness without feeling too gritty. I thought the scent was subtle without being too overpowering. I think this one was my favorite overall. 5 stars!

Living Proof Dry Volume and Texturizing Spray

Cost: $32 for 4.2 oz bottle. This was my least favorite of the 4. I love Living Proof's other products, but this one fell flat (pun intended 😉). This spray had the least amount of volume from the beginning, meaning even less volume as the day went on. It worked as a dry shampoo, but to be honest their regular dry shampoo was better. I give this one 2 stars. 

Have you tried a texturizing spray you'd recommend? I'd be happy to try some other ones out and report back! Today I am linking up with Sarah and Holly for Hello Monday. Have a great week!


  1. Love Oribe products! Don't you love the smell?

    1. Yes!!! It smells amazing and works so well. A great combination!

  2. Did you know you are actually suppose to use dry shampoo before your hair gets oily. So you have been doing it right all along.

    1. A reader Alisha told me that actually not too long ago!! Thank goodness for blogging, I learn so much!

  3. I have never heard of a couple of these. Thanks for the heads up! Visiting you from the hello monday link up.

  4. Yes!!! Use it like a deodorant - use it before it's needed, that's what @thesisterstudioIG taught me LOL! It's a life changing hack when it comes to dry shampoo!

    I completely agree, the living proof texturizing spray completely sucks! now the dry shampoo is my best friend, but the texturizing spray isn't great. Thanks for these recommendations! :)
