Oribe Thick Dry Finishing Spray vs Dry Texturizing Spray: Any Differences?

Sharing is caring!

These two products are very popular. But there seems to be a lot of confusion about them.

Most users mistake them for one another, which explains why there is a demand for both of them.

If you’re about to purchase the texturizing spray from Oribe but don’t know exactly which one it is, then you’re going to benefit from this article.

Or if you’re familiar with both and are just looking for a comparison to better understand their features and make an informed decision, then this article is for you too.

Without mincing words, let’s get to know the two products.

Thick Dry Finishing vs Dry Texturizing Spray

Before looking at the differences between these two aerial sprays, let’s look at a review of both in turn.

The Dry Finishing Spray

According to the brand, this hair spray is formulated to add plumpness to the hair, which Oribe called their secret for big, bouncy hair.

As with other Oribe products, you can pick up the spray in a regular or travel size. The spray is supposed to thicken the shaft and create voluptuous hair from the roots.

The Dry Finishing is packed with the brand’s signature complex (which contains watermelon, lychee, and edelweiss flower) as well as panthenol, zeolite crystallines, and hydrolyzed vegetable protein among others.

If you’re looking to add density, body, and hold to hair, then consider this one.

The Dry Texturizing Spray

Yes, this is another invisible dry hair spray that’s better used before styling. Once sprayed, it textures the hair for a smooth styling that is supposed to last for days in shine and freshness.

It also contains the ingredient that saps oils from the root of the hair so that excess sebum won’t ruin your just-styled hair.

Like the Finishing Spray, it is equally available in both regular and travel sizes.

When I checked the brand’s website during my research, the Dry Texturizing Spray is slightly more expensive than the Thick Dry Finishing Spray, but not by much.

So, if you’re looking to save a few dollars, you might want to consider going for this.

Last, but not least, this spray is among ELLE International Beauty Awards in 2022. Meaning it’s a promising product to invest in.

What are the Differences?

The Oribe Thick Dry Finishing Spray is basically formulated for weak or thin hair while the Dry Texturizing Spray is designed to create body and a firm grip on hair.

So, if you have limp or thin hair, you’ll use the Finish Spray.

However, if you’re just looking to add body or volume to hair, without necessarily suffering from hair thinning, then the Texturizing Spray is your candidate.

As you can see from their names, both are hair sprays with subtle differences. I guess this and the way Oribe named both products is the reason for the confusion surrounding both.

Key Ingredients in Both

This is another way of differentiating between the two products. Usually, the ingredients are very similar, as is evident in many Oribe products.

However, if you look closely, you’ll be able to pick a few differences. Where one contains certain ingredients which aren’t present in the other.

The key ingredients in the Thick Dry Finishing Spray:

Acrylates/octyl acrylamide copolymer; panthenol and hydrolyzed keratin; watermelon, lychee, and edelweiss extracts; zeolite

The key ingredients in the Dry Texturizing Spray:

Copolymers; aloe leaf juice, mango extract, and hydrolyzed wheat protein; silicones; kiwi, passion flower, and sunflower-seed extracts and benzophenone-4

As mentioned before, if you look at the full list of ingredients, you’ll soon realize that they have common ingredients.

But when you take out the active ingredients, you start to see a different scenario playing out.

The Dry Texturizing Spray has these unique ingredients:

Aloe leaf juice – Helps to calm itchy scalp, strengthen and repair hair strands, and deep cleanse oily hair.

Mango extract – Promotes hair growth, moisturizes hair, and prevents hair thinning and split ends

Hydrolized wheat protein – Helps to add protein to hair strands and keeps hair hydrated while adding volume

Passion flower – Nourishes dry and damaged hair and can help keep the hair soft and shiny

Kiwi – It contains abundant vitamins that increase blood circulation, creating environment for hair growth

Sunflower seed extract – Prevents hair breaking and spurring hair growth

Benzophenone-4 – Helps protect hair color

The Dry Texturizing Spray has these unique ingredients:

Hydrolyzed keratin – Contains thickeners for hair body and hair shine enhancers

Watermelon – Packed with vitamin C to stimulate hair follicles and promote healthy hair

Lychee – It’s also rich in vitamin C but also copper and iron mainly for replenishing shine in hair as well as to maintain original hair color

Zeolite – Absorbs oil at a deep level, and thus is great for those with excessive oil-producing scalp

Edelweiss extracts – Conditions the hair

Texture and Feel

The Thick Dry Finishing Spray feels weightless, according to reviews, and exudes a fruity scent of watermelon.

The Dry Texturizing Spray, on the other hand, may not be as much weightless but leaves a cool feeling on the scalp with a fresh citrus scent, according to reviewers. Its fragrance is closer to musk than the Dry Finishing Spray.


The main benefit of the Dry Finish Spray is that it adds volume and holds, without greasy or sticky residue.

Whereas, the Texturizing Spray is great for styling hair. Spray it to the hair to add texture before an updo.


If you were having problems distinguishing the two sprays before, I believe the functions of each are now clear.

They have slightly different ingredients so they have slightly different purposes, even though they are dangerously similar.

Fortunately, if you need more clearance, you can get in touch with Oribe and they’ll be able to give you insider information.

But I believe this comparison is enough to get you on the right track.

Finally, I’m hoping that I’ve done justice to the Oribe Thick Dry Finish Spray vs Dry Texturizing Spray debate.
