The Game Changer: Oribe Maximista Thickening Spray


I'm just going to put it out there: my hair can be pretty shit to me. One day it's crazy and frizzy, next day it's flat, and after years of colouring the condition just ain't what it used to be. I'm also going to put it out there however, that lately I've been having some pretty alright hair days, actually to the point where people have been NOTICING the difference (never happens). I have one product in mind when I consider why this change has come about, and it is Oribe's maximista spray, which you use on damp hair before blowdrying to thicken and volumize. 

B.M, (that's before maximista) if you'd have asked me to pick one hair care brand I would choose to use for the rest of my life, (if money grew on trees) I would always have said Bumble and Bumble. However, after using Oribe's thickening spray and hearing rave reviews about their dry texturising spray, it may possibly just be a toss up. The spray itself has a slightly sticky hairspray-like consistency which when sprayed on smells incredible. When used before blowdrying (I use my babyliss new big hair tool which is also amazing) it works an absolute treat. I have grown up with very fine hair and been desperately envious of my friends' thick, luxurious locks and have never thought that look would be achievable for me. The Oribe Maximista gets me as close as will ever be possible, and is the best thickening spray I have ever used. It really does add so much volume and after fully drying your hair you can easily see the difference in thickness. If you scroll down to my recent outfit post (Lakeside) in some of the earlier pictures by the grass you can see the effects of the spray. 

As ever, there are downsides and limitations to the product (so don't expect to see me with fantastic huge Brigitte Bardot-esque hair all day every day). I find the spray to lose its effect fairly quickly, especially in any sort of windy weather conditions. It definitely does not have the same impressive effect the following day which means washing and blow drying far more often to achieve the big hair look. 

However, I do seriously love this spray and when scientists/farmers find a way for money to grow on trees you'll see me heading straight towards the Oribe counter to pick up their entire range. Have you tried any products from Oribe? What's your favourite thickening spray?

  1. Think I'll definitely be checking this out! I have such frizzy hair sometimes but with no volume, it just sort of hangs from my head. But I like how you said it gave your hair volume - definitely what I need!

  2. I always think I don't need a thickening spray because I have pretty thick, dare I say frizzy-esque hair but whenever I straighten it, it loses all of it's texture and is so flat; Christmas is round the corner so hopefully I won't have to wait until money grows on trees... *cough* Santa? *cough* xxx

  9. I admire what you have done here. I like the part where you say you are doing this to give back but I would assume by all the opinions that this is working for you as well.

  16. Counterfeit hair treatment methodology and items are not generally sound for the hair. Thus, individuals must pick different regular items, which will profit them. There are various hair treatment items which are accessible in the market. Subsequently, finding the right item is alongside inconceivable. Some locally established medications incorporate utilizing hot oil treatment, texturizing spray for fine hair, Carotene Hair Treatment, and so on.
