Oribe Maximista Thickening Spray

Some products promise to boost volume, only to fall flat on their promises mere minutes after you’re done styling. This spray, however, thickens hair and keeps it that way, nourishing strands and protecting from heat styling tools without weighing them down for maximum body that lasts (and lasts).

My hair is thinning (at my age), and this spray "thickens" my curly hair. Even the next morning, my hair appears to have more body. I am looking forward to using this spray in the winter when I wear my hair straight.

Absolutely My New Favorite Hair Product
Purchased

The smell is the first thing that hits you; I don't even know how to describe it, but it's wonderful. It lasted at least half the day. Nothing too heavy. Just a delightful wisp of scent when your hair falls across your face.

I was a little apprehensive when applying it because it seemed to make my hair and my hand sticky. I did have to wash my hand after applying, and it made me have (soon to be fleeting) second thoughts: was this just going to make my hair sticky and flat?

Any anxiety, however, left as I began blow-drying it, which seemed to take less time than usual. My hair went from feeling a bit sticky to thicker, sturdier, and fuller. It lasted all day, even into the morning.

I have short hair, about halfway in between shoulder and chin length, and I used about 6-8 sprays. At that rate, this bottle should last a while and will be a great value at the price.

I joke all the time about how I don't expect any product to give me "supermodel" hair; this comes pretty darn close, though!

Love it!
Purchased

I splurged on several Oribe hair products and I have to say this was my favorite, hands down. My hair is very straight and very fine - I am always on the lookout for volumizing products, but can never find anything that doesn't make my hair oily. Well, this product kills it! It gives my hair bounce and lift, while simultaneously remaining silky and soft. For me, there's a fine line between 'just right' and 'too much' with this product. Too much of this product leaves my hair feeling gooey. Four to five sprays of this gets the job done, which is great because it's a more expensive item! Would highly recommend.

Can't live without this!
Purchased

I was hesitant to purchase this because of the price tag. However, reading the previous reviews were promising. After using this for the first time I wondered why I only purchased one bottle! It works amazingly well. My hair looked thicker, more voluminous, shiny and smelled amazing. My style held all day and the smell lasted all day. I've used another brand of a similar product for years and I can't imagine going back to that. I will continue to repurchase this as long as I can.

Great, but dries out my hair!
Purchased

Definitely thickens my hair, but not smoothly. I'm getting used to the look, and will try flat ironing the topmost layer to smooth it out. Will have to use infrequently though, because it is very drying to my hair.

you might look like a troll doll
Purchased

This makes my hair a little too fluffy. I never thought I would have to say that. My hair looked like a troll doll after I was done blow drying my head upside down.

Obsessed!
Purchased

This product transforms limp straight hair into volume filled beauty! It smells great which is no surprise being a product by Oribe. I am able to use this both when I blow dry/round brush my hair and when I wear my hair wavy. Great versatile product- highly recommend!

Big or Texas Big?
Purchased

When I was choosing between this volumizer and the Oribe Volumista spray, my stylist asked if I wanted my hair to be big or Texas big. I chose Texas big and he suggested this product. I've tried many volumizers over the years and this is by far the best. I spray it around my crown before blow drying and it certainly is an effective root booster without the greasy looking after effects of some other volumizers. It also has that great Oribe smell that lasts all day. Love it!

wow awesome volume

this works similar to mousse. I love this before i blow dry, it makes my hair look so rich and full, its great for straight or for use before curls. Idk if it has heat protectant in it, but i hope so. Just incase i also bought oribes soft lacquer heat protectant to use when i curl my hair with heat.

Love this!
Purchased

Absolutely love this product. My hair is pretty thin and this gives it oomph and volume. Only downside is that it can make your hair greasy if you put too much.
