I haven't tried the OB spray, but I prefer the clear sprays in general. I have thin hair too and I've found that most of the powders leave a residue, the sprays don't.
I've also tried the Tresemme Foam, but didn't like that at all because you have to blow dry your hair after using it. I hear good things about the Aveeno spray, but I haven't tried it yet. I hope this helps.

for me the powder works better, oily hair disappears instantly, no wait for the spray to dry and set.

try this! i love the powder b/c it lasts longer (meaning, the bottle vs the spray more weeks of use) and it sounds like you have a hair type similar to mine.
ive tried about 4-5 others, and this is my go to.

it's way better than the spray. I have grabbed the spray by accident and it is not even close to the powder.

I think the powder works a lot better than the spray and it travels well as its neither liquid or gel. You use less powder and the spray can get stinky and all over your hands.

I bought the spray first because it sounded less messy and easier to apply but you have to wait for the spray to dry before you can brush it out and it doesn't seem to work as well (plus my scalp was itchy at work and when I would scratch, embarrassing white powder residue was still there). I tried the powder and will be throwing away the spray.

I have not tried the spray but I really like that this is a powder and you can really control where you put it. I just pour some into one hand and rub it around with my fingertips and then rub it around my hairline. It smells fresh and really is a time saver. I love to get one more day out of my blow dried hair. Hope my answer helps!
I was told the powder would last longer than the aerosol can. I have fairly thin hair that can be coaxed into waves with some surf wax and little drying, and I like the shampoo for days when I wear it wavy; not so great for days I have straightened my hair.
The Oscar Blandi sprays and the Oscar Blandi loose powder are completely different formulas. The spray, in my opinion, is worthless. You might as well be spraying compressed air on your hair. The powder, on the other hand, is AWESOME. Now, as I've pointed out before, it won't *clean* your hair as much as it will prevent your hair from accumulating grease and dirt. So use it right before bed on the day you do your blowout, put your hair UP at night (this is imperative to making a blowout last) , and you will wake up with clean hair and it will stay clean and lemony-smelling for days and days.
Also, Oscar Blandi is the best, I've tried them all - my only complaint is that it is white and not colored (I know the spray comes in brown, but the sprays don't work!) but if you are blonde then the whiteness should blend in well. I have super-dark hair so I've gotta be careful, but this product has been a cornerstone of my routine for years now. Good luck! :)

I prefer the powder for greater control, but I am brunette and do not like the product to show. You may enjoy the spray better for quicker application.
