Drugstore VS High End : Charles Worthington Texturising Spray & Oribe Dry Texturising Spray





So a lot of bloggers have been comparing the Charles Worthington Texturising spray to the much adored but ever so slightly bank breaking Oribe Dry Texturising Spray so I thought I'd test it out for myself and see if they were telling the truth!

Right so first of all I must say that these are two very different products but they more or less give the same results give or take a couple of factors. I feel the most effective way of comparing them is by showing you in list form (not just to satisfy my list making needs...)

Oribe Dry Texturising Spray £38 300ml:

  • It's a dry spray that instantly adds a lot of volume, style and texture
  • It also doubles up as a dry shampoo
  • Scented with Oribe's signature scent - divine!
  • Leaves no white marks
  • Leaves absolutely no residue, no stickiness, or crispy texture to the hair
Charles Worthington Volume & Bounce Texturising Spray £6.99 150ml:


  • Promises the 'backcomb effect', height, texture and volume and that it's non-greasy
  • It doubles up as a hairspray
  • Leaves no white marks
  • Smells fruity, watermelon in my opinion! 
  • However leaves a significant amount of residue and crispy texture
Now with the Charles Worthington spray I mentioned the residue, I don't necessarily feel that this a bad thing as I find it gives my hair a bit more grit and allows me to style it a bit more and that's probably the hairspray aspect of it. I feel like the Oribe one doesn't last as long on me, perhaps because my hair is very long and it takes a lot to style it anyway. I think the Oribe one is better suited for the roots as it acts as a dry shampoo as well and doesn't leave residue, I think with the CW one I'd be worried that it would make my roots look greasy but it's fabulous for my ends! 

I think the CW spray is 100% worth the money I paid for it, and a massive bonus being that I don't wince every time I use it unlike I do with the Oribe one! However there is something special about the Oribe one and I feel almost privileged to own one! 

Have you tried either or both of these? What do you think is better? Let me know what you think!
