An Oribe Dry Texturising Spray Dupe?

Double Photo Test

Is there a contender for the Oribe Dry Texturising Spray in town? Allow me to mull over this one. 

When I first spotted the Bumble and Bumble Thickening Dryspun Finish* on the shelves two things crossed my mind. Firstly the aforementioned question. Secondly – Bumble y’da take so long? Finally the rulers of the haircare roost when it comes to messy undone texture have entered into the volumising spray game. With instructions to spray on roots and ruffle for fullness, I’ve found a few spritzes gives instant oomph and lift to the crown and lengths alike. I’m impressed.

So how does it compare my much (much) loved Oribe Dry Texturising Spray? Well one point to consider is that price-per-ml-wise they work out about the same – I’ve done the math. But finish-wise the two are actually quite different. Whereas the Bumble gives a light, airy, almost fluffy finish; the Oribe is much more gritty and heavy in texture. Leading me to the conclusion that those with finer tresses will get on with the Bumble and Bumble Thickening Dryspun Finish better and those with a thicker mop that needs something a little more heavy duty the Oribe Dry Texturising Spray will be more your cup of tea. Big locks for all hair types. Sorted.

  • the Belgian release is due for october. I’m so sooo curious to try this one out. I love the Oribe. Got to know it thanks to you and now I’m hooked.

    • Rowanhill

      Would you know where in Belgium to find the Oribe products?

      • nowhere, I’m afraid. I always used to stock it from space NK, but they don’t ship anymore to belgium….

  • Gita Bončina

    I was already eyeing this Thickening fella, now I gotta have it :)! Thanks for this, Anna :).


  • Anya Cross

    I didn’t get on with the Oribe one, I think maybe it was slightly too heavy for my hair. I shall have to give the Bumble and Bumble one a go x

  • PeonyandPeach

    I really want to try them both!

  • Elena

    aaah I have super thick hair so Oribe for me once I save up enough mula, might be a while though haha! 🙂 xx

  • Charlotte MacDonald-Gaunt

    Haven’t tried any of them yet, but definitely will – they seem amazing! Xx

  • BnB Dryspun hasn’t made it to Sydney yet, I guess. In case it does I think it would be worty of a try. Thanks for the review Anna!

  • Laura Bolton

    Fab – I’ve been looking at trying the B&B sea salt spray for a while (Instyle seem to love it!) but maybe I’ll see if this works better – I’ve got such fine hair it always goes flat despite layering up the mousse!

  • It’s interesting that they work out the same price in per ml, the b&b does sound better though, I don’t want my hair to feel heavy like I’ve put lots of product there xx Emmi

  • Maddy Cane

    They both sound amazing, I think the B&B would be better for me though! x

    I love your hair! You are making me think about going a bit shorter, I’ve had my long hair for ages now!


  • Talisa Lauren Tossell

    I’ve tried both and definitely prefer oribe!

  • DB

    Hi Anna! Great post, have you tried the Vo5 Plump Me Up spray? It makes your hair light like candy floss… I love it and would like to know hope it compares to the bumble and bumble spray – I’ve just done a review recently at

  • hazel mae

    I need to try a texturing spray, my hair is so thin it has no body at all

  • Thank you so much for this review, Anna!! I was really torn on which one to test out and your review sealed the deal with the Bumble and Bumble. My fine locks need something lighter. Can’t wait to try it out!

  • Ok, well noted. I’m buying the B&B dry spray when it comes out here!

  • murt

    Thanks for this review – I’m definitely going to check out the B&B version.

  • Erin Jaine

    I’m actually glad you’ve pointed out the price thing – a lot of bloggers have been saying buy Bumble because it’s cheaper but technically it’s not really!


  • Amber Hunter

    Thanks for this review and comparison! My hair isn’t fine or thick–kind of in the middle! I think I’ll go for the less expensive option this time haha.
    Lovely Notions

  • Isabelle McWilliam

    Hadn’t even thought about the price per ml thing, thanks for the heads up!

  • clareelise

    Oh hows I love Bumble and Bumble if only we could get it here in Dubai xx

  • Radhika

    I absolutely LOVE the Oribe spray, but it does get a bit heavy on the crown for me sometimes. My salon is a B&B one, and I’ve seen this there but was always hesitant to get it. You’ve convinced me to try it out next time I get a cut! Thanks Anna!

  • Jennifer

    I actually like the dry spun for my thick wavy hair rather Oribe. Oribe reminds me of the BB surf spray.
