Water-based styling products break down with a little H20. To loosen this styler’s grip on hair, just wet fingers and run them through your hair. If you want something with more hold, try Oribe’s Original Pomade.

Oribe

Birchbox Breakdown

Instead of shelling out for an appointment at a fancy salon, get a salon effect with this pro-quality styling cream. The light formula works on both wet or dry hair and dries to a flexible—never sticky—hold. It works equally well on straight, curly, or wavy hair, plus the sculptural black bottle adds a touch of rock star to your bathroom shelf.

How it Works

This luxe formula uses high-quality natural ingredients to keep hair healthy. Geranium, lavender, and chamomile extracts hydrate, while antioxidant-loaded green tea extract and vitamin E protect hair from environmental factors. It prevents frizz and general unruliness equally well for dry or wet hair.

How to Use

Start with a nickel-sized amount of product and work through damp or dry hair. Add more if necessary.

LOVE
Purchased

I absolutely love all things Oribe and once again, I was not disappointed!! I have thick, curly and Keratin treated hair (taking the curl out for the moment 8-) and this product worked great on my Keratin relaxed hair. I would imagine that once my very naturally curly hair comes back (as the Keratin wears off) it will really work well with my curls, too. I will continue to use Oribe. They are expensive, but in my opinion, well worth every penny spent!

Do you want waves, control, or free style hair? I can use this on dry day after hair and have amazing walk out the door waves!

Smells amazing

I use this cream on my curly hair and let it air dry. It smells wonderful and generally leaves my hair with a nice texture, though it can occasionally get a little crunchy on top.

Love it!

I love this product! It makes my hair nice and smooth. It is not too heavy or oily. It goes well with the other products I use.

Not for me
Purchased

I really wanted to love this creme, but found it too greasy and heavy. I tried using smaller amounts and it just weighed down my hair. For the price, there are better products out there.

Lovely!

This product is really great. It gives your hair texture and volume, especially if you are using it on damp hair and a round brush when you blow dry. I wouldn't necessarily say it moisturizes or conditions like many reviews say, but overall it's good for giving your hair that extra lift.

Wave definition

I have thick, wavy hair and this product does a great job controlling frizz and defining my waves. My only complaint is that its slightly tacky and you can definitely feel it in your hair (as opposed to a weightless product). However it doesn't make your hair hard or crunchy, I do find that I need to wash my hair for sure the next day to get the residue out. I also like to use it as a smoothing product before or after I straighten and it works great for fly-aways.

Worth the price
Purchased

If you are looking for a styling cream for hair that has a hard time holding a curl, get this product. It's slightly tacky, but it doesn't make your hair crunchy. It's got a nice light scent, too. If you're concerned about the price, it's a fairly large size bottle and a little goes a long way. I have hair down to my mid-back that is medium weight and use about a half a dime size.

Love Oribe Products
Purchased

I have way more Oribe products than I should probably admit, but this is one of my first finds. I have been using this product for a year now and I still have half if not more left. I use probably a dime size after I am done styling my hair and not only does it smell good but it helps eliminate any extra frizz and gives it a great shine.
