I find that hair products are the easiest to play with to find different textures, formulas and brands without throwing off your beauty routine. For the most part I tend to stick with drugstore brands since my hair is pretty easy to style, and has always been pretty healthy since I don’t dye or treat my hair.
However, as of late I’ve been loving the dry shampoos and texturizing sprays from more high-end brands such as Living Proof and Oribe, and now I will add Drybar to the mix. I’m in love with the Triple Sec The Perfect 3-in-1 texturizing spray and will definitely be sad when I run out of this travel size bottle.
Drybar vs. Oribe & Living Proof
As stated, this product is meant to texturize, amplify and refresh your hair, so similar to the Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray (which is one of my faves!) you can use this both as a dry shampoo and to add volume to your hair.
Texturizes. Amplifies. Refreshes. Adds soft, matte texture for a perfectly tousled look. Amplifies flat hair for intense volume and fullness. Absorbs light oils, leaving hair feeling fresh and clean.
I find that this product works best on 2nd or 3rd-day hair, when there is a bit of oil to soak up. This spray does not leave a white cast on my dark brunette hair, and the vanilla marshmallow-y scent is really nice to spruce things up.
At $26 this is a mid-range high-end price point, with Oribe being the highest, and the Living Proof Perfect hair Day Dry Shampoo coming in at $22. When looking at double the price for Oribe, I’d much rather spend my money on Drybar or Living Proof. I do have to say though, I think that the Living Proof dry shampoo wins out in this battle as my favorite, as it’s easier to work with and blend into my hair, and leaves a much softer, cleaner feeling.
An Outstanding Texturizing Spray
If you’re looking for more texture and gritty hold, the Drybar formula is for you! It gives off a strong spray which in itself lifts and volumizes the hair. It’s more closely formulated like the Oribe Dry Texturizing spray in that it leaves a gritty texturized feeling without being sticky like some of the drugstore alternatives.
I love using this spray with curls to add volume to the top portion of my hair where I don’t necessarily put curls in with my Hot Tools Gold Professional Curling Iron. It also works really well with a soft blowout where I use the Drybar Buttercup Blow-Dryer which is truly an incredible blow dryer. It gets my thick hair dry in no time at all without damaging my hair.
All-in-all I am definitely a fan of Drybar and am really liking both their tools and hair products. I would definitely repurchase the Triple Sec spray in the full size, as the texturizing and volumizing aspects of this spray are very nice. If you’re looking for a dry shampoo that will quickly and easily soak up oil and make your hair feel clean, I would try the Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo instead.
