Keep your locks extra manageable by using this shampoo with Oribe’s Ultra Gentle Conditioner.

Oribe

Birchbox Breakdown

It’s fact: no matter how yummy they smell, many of the shampoos we come across can strip our hair and leave it as dry as hay. Not so with this gentle formula, which quenches our locks from roots to tips with Oribe’s unique complex of proteins, vitamins, and plant extracts. It’s especially great for color-treated and processed hair since the formula contains UV protection to shield your strands from the fading effects of the sun. And yes, it smells incredible.

How it Works

This nourishing formula respects the integrity of color and keratin-treated hair, and it’s also great for those who have chosen to stay au natural. A special UV defense system mitigates sun damage and prevents hair from looking fried. Watermelon, lychee, and edelweiss flower extracts protect hair’s natural keratin, while soy protein strengthens each strand. Finally, Pro-Vitamin B-5 adds softness and shine.

How to Use

In the shower, lather a quarter-size amount into wet hair, concentrating on the roots. Repeat if desired to build extra volume.

Great smell
Purchased

This shampoo smells great. It doesn't suds much and I feel like I need quite a bit of it to wash my hair thoroughly. It seems to protect my blonde highlights even though it isn't specifically for color treated hair. I like to use the same product family to keep the smell of my hair the same rather than layer a bunch of different products that can sometimes smell funny.

Smells Great
Purchased

I love Oribe products and the Ultra Gentle Shampoo does not disappoint. Greasy hair is gone after washing but does not feel stripped and dried. And the shampoo smells amazing!

Well worth the money
Purchased

Oribe products cost more, but they are well worth the money. My hair is always soft after use and doesn't even require a detangler like most others do. I highly recommend any Oribe products.

Horrible texture, oily residue
Purchased

I love Oribe products, especially the color care. However, this shampoo is awful. It leaves my hair heavy and oily. It feels like it hasn't been washed in a week even though I just barely washed it. Maybe if you have short hair it would be fine and would give you nice beachy hair, but my hair is long and when I use this shampoo and conditioner I can't do anything with it. I can't even stand to touch it, it just hangs limply.

Oribe makes the richest, silkiest and best scented shampoos! Your hair feels so healthy after the first use! (At least mine did) I swear I could smell it on my hair all day...and I loved it!

smells nice, soft hair

This shampoo smells nice and leaves my hair soft, shiny, and very healthy. It is pricey though so I would hesitate to buy it again without a coupon.
