You know me, I’m a big lover of wavy hair and am always on the hunt for hair products to help me achieve that effortless wave look. Here are two products that are great at achieving the messy wave look; the Oribe Wave and Shine Spray* and the cult favourite, John Frieda Sea Salt Spray*. Obviously the Oribe is the high end product, but does the John Frieda Sea Salt Spray achieve the same look at half the price? Keep reading to find out xx
Here’s what Oribe has to say about the Wave and Shine Spray, “Get beach-to-bombshell hair—tousled, touchable waves with sun-kissed shine—without the salty stiffness. Our moisturizing glamour spray uses rich extracts and exotic oils for lush repair and sultry texture.”
Overall Thoughts about the Oribe Wave and Shine Spray:
- Retails for approximately $22 for the small bottle (prize varies depending on which salon you purchase from)
- The smell is amazing! I don’t know how to explain it but it definitely smells like salon quality
- The mist is fine and you only need a little at the roots to create some texture and volume
- I also add a bit of this to my waves to add some texture and create some hold
- Can apply wet or dry, but I’ve only used it dry
- Better to add texture for wavy hair when you don’t want it to look too messy
- Doesn’t leave the hair crunchy and stiff
- I felt my hair had a nice gloss without looking oily
Here’s what John Frieda has to say about the Beach Blonde Ocean Waves Sea Salt Spray, “An original fan favorite, this iconic Sea-Salt infused spray is back and better than ever. It enhances natural waves and increases grip and texture for a ropey, ripple effect with a matte finish. This leave-in non-drying formula is suitable for all hair colours and still has that iconic summery coconut fragrance.”
Overall Thoughts about the John Frieda Beach Blonde Ocean Waves Sea Salt Spray:
- Retails for $16.95 for 150ml
- Smells really nice, kinda like sea salt and coconuts
- I apply this to wet and dry hair
- It definitely adds a waxy texture when used just on wet hair
- Adds texture and a bit of volume
- Better to use for creating the beachy, messy wave look
And the winner is….
Oribe Wave and Shine Spray
Personally I like the Oribe spray as it has more hold which I need for my thick hair. For the days when I want more messy, effortless waves then the John Frieda Sea Salt Spray is the way to go! As you can see they’re both very similar and the John Frieda one is a great alternatively if you’re not wanting to spend too much.
