Keep hair luscious from step one with Oribe Signature Shampoo

Oribe

Birchbox Breakdown

Want: Perfectly imperfect, tousled surfer-girl hair. Need: Oribe’s texturizing mousse, which delivers that coveted thick and piece-y look. And unlike drying seawater, this mousse hydrates strands and boosts shine—without making you smell like eau de seaweed.

How it Works

This heat-protective formula features the Oribe Signature Complex, a blend of watermelon, lychee, and edelweiss flower extracts that protects hair from photoaging and environmental stressors. Meanwhile, an intensely hydrating blend of safflower seed oil, glycerin, and wheat amino acids keeps hair glossy, moisturized, and frizz-free—without feeling heavy.

How to Use

Shake can before use. Dispense a generous pouf of mousse into hands, massage between palms, and scrunch throughout damp hair. Style as usual.

A Huge Disappointment
Purchased

I'm glad I spent points on this instead of just buying it right out. I was really unhappy with this product. I don't understand the YouTube hype about it. I have naturally curly hair so I was looking for something to hold my natural curls and tone down my frizz but this isn't the mousse for that. I might have missed a memo somewhere and this only works wonders for stick straight hair looking for Victoria Secret waves but I will not be repurchasing. I might give the mousse specifically for curly hair a try and see if that one works better but I won't be purchasing a mousse from Oribe for a while.

Great product
Purchased

I have naturally wavy hair, but have to use products to make it hold. Before using this product I had been using special curl shampoo, conditioners, mousse, and gel all at once just to get my hair to hold my curls. I decided to try to out this Oribe texture mousse and it worked like a charm! It's now the only product I have to use! It smells great, and holds so well, and it lightweight so it gives my hair a much healthier, lighter feel compared to using gel that makes it crunchy.

Great Smell

My hair is somewhere in-between wavy and straight but I love the beach wave look. I run this through my damp hair and it leaves a gentle tousled look but also smells great!

Good product
Purchased

I don't think this product made my hair feel hydrated but it did provide amazing hold. My waves lasted at least three days and could have gone longer if I had used dry shampoo.

Amazing
Purchased

My hairstylist used this on me the last time I got my hair cut and I knew I just had to have it! This product does exactly what it says, it gives you a tousled texture for when you want a more sexy voluminous look. My hairstylist used it after curling my hair with a round brush and curling iron so it helped give my hair style a more fun toulsed look instead of a more perfectly curled look, which was nice for a change. It's an easy product to use to change up your look without changing your routine dramatically.

Beach Love

I've used several beach wave sprays but this is my first mousse. Mousse is the way to go! My hair is very straight but this product gives me curls. Bonus is smells great!

Holy Grail
Purchased

This product is literally what I have been looking for, since I can remember. I have fine, wavy hair, that gets oily quickly, but also frizzes. This gives be the perfect bedhead texture, while still maintaining a certain polish. Not to mention it gives me the grit that holds style, and banishes the horrid squeaky clean texture that makes my hair slip and just genuinely look blah.

Smells amazing!
Purchased

I have coarse but thin hair (Asian textured hair), and my hair isn't stick straight but it's not super wavy either. Sort of a half wavy. This product does a pretty decent job of creating waves and texturizing, but I don't get the desired effect without using a curling rod for some parts of my hair.

You also have to be careful about how much mousse you use. If you have super long hair, 1 golf-ball size dollop per side of your hair. If you have medium-long (below the collar bone), a ping-pong ball size per side is just fine. If you use too much, your hair will get crunchy. And you definitely have to use this while your hair is wet — it just gets crunchy (and doesn't really work) if you try it on dry hair.

I'm pretty picky about my scents, but I love the smell of this.

Overall, good for people with some wave or texture to your hair who want to get even more waves/beachy texture. I can't imagine it'll work well for people with completely straight hair or relax someone's super curly hair.

Great!
Purchased

I'm not a huge fan of mousse-type products but I love this. It gives great shine and texture just like advertised. I have think, short hair and this hasn't weighed it down as others in the past have.

Summer Here I Come!
Purchased

Creates wonderful tousled waves! I think I still like the dry texturizing apres-beach spray better for my fine hair, but I think I am still mastering this product. Overall, this product creates great natural waves. I just wish it created a bit more volume.
