Oribe Après Beach Wave and Shine Purse Spray

For natural, unfussy waves, nothing beats a dip in the ocean. But short of moving to the Caribbean, there’s no way to recreate that look at a moment’s notice—or so we thought. This two-in-one spray adds texture and shine to our hair, allowing us to create a piecey, tousled look minus the stiffening effects of salt water. It’s suitable for all hair types, from superfine to ultrathick, and also safe for color-treated or processed strands.

Smells great
Purchased

I have the small and large size, and really it is an overpriced hair perfume. It makes your hair smell fantastic, but it doesn't do much except make it a bit crispy.

Didn't perform as described
Purchased

I was really looking forward to trying this product so I purchased the purse size. It didn't live up to it's description unfortunately. I have naturally wavy hair but instead of giving me a piecy, textured, wavy look, when applied it gave my hair no additional wave and the texture looked more like I had taken hairspray and applied it in chunks throughout my hair.

Not for me
Purchased

I just could not make this work for me. And I'm so sad about it because I LOVE some of Oribe's other products.

I have naturally wavy, thin hair. I've tried to use this on both wet and dry hair. On dry hair, it just made my hair super oily. On wet hair, I didn't notice much of anything.

not for me
Purchased

I have very thick naturally wavy hair and I was hoping that this would be a shinier, gentler version of the other beach sprays out there. Unfortunately this just made my hair feel stiff and look like a bird's nest.. I tried putting it on both damp and fully dry hair and did not like the effects either way. I also didn't think it added any shine.

Didn't see much change...
Purchased

I didn't notice that this did anything to my hair. I will try it again but wasn't impressed. Sounds like my hair might not be the right combo because others love it. My hair is long, fine and combination moisture.

Way smaller than expected
Purchased

I don't really see that this enhanced my hair at all. It's a tiny bottle, so I'm scared to use it unless for special occasions.
Just okay.

Just not for my hair
Purchased

I was hoping for something easy to spray in, because I already have wavy/curly hair that just goes crazy frizzy at times. I was hoping this would be it, but not quite. It smelled great, but really didn't seem to do much but just add product. It didn't really help with turning my wavy hair into something better, and it didn't really seem to add shine either. I might have just not been using the right amount (either too little or too much), but it just wasn't the solution I was hoping/looking for.

Didn't work for my hair.
Purchased

I have long straight/slightly wavy hair. I thought this might bring out more of the wave in my hair. I followed the directions, I tried to using less and then using a lot. I really experimented with it. I really wanted this to work for me- but it didn't work for my fine hair. Maybe this would work better on thicker hair types. I will have to continue my quest for the perfect, wave/hair texturized unfortunately.
On the upside, the fragrance of this product is really pretty. And the travel size is perfect for "on the go" situations.

Loved the smell; I don't need more waves
Purchased

This stuff smells fab, but I just don't need it. Also, the sprayer was really hard to press. However, When I could make it work with both hands, I used it for the smell!

It's OK

I have curly hair, it did nothing to tame my locks. I'm used to mouses or cremes to control my locks. This is a hair spray.I did like the smell of the spray.
