Oribe Matte Waves Texture Lotion

Bed head often results in hairs sticking out in every direction, not naturally tousled strands. Luckily, this lightweight lotion with medium hold makes our locks perfectly undone. Featuring a unique, matte formula, it creates a low-key, beachy look like a sea salt spray, sans the salt itself (which can dry out your strands). We call that a win-win.

Not for short hair

Unfortunately I’ve received another product that seems to be for long/textured hair. I’m rockin a pixie right now and can’t say that this added any noticeable texture

Not For Me...
Sampled

I really hoped that I would like this one because I had just read some good reviews on it in a hair magazine the week before I received the sample in my box. Unfortunately this product just didn't do it for me though. I have naturally curly/ frizzy/ dry hair to begin with, and this product just added to the frizzy/ dryness issue I am already trying to combat a regular basis. I didn't like how extra dry it left my hair feeling, and half way through the day my hair looked extra puffy/ frizzy and I just ended up having to pull it up because it looked like I hadn't used any product at all. I only wash my hair every 5 days, and with my normal products I am able to have 2 good hair days and one decent "left over hair" day, followed by 2 days of wearing my hair up. So this was a big disappointment for me.

I hated it
Sampled

This was awful. It wasn’t sticky but make my hair look really weird. Tbh I’ve never been a fan of Birchbox hair recommendations.

The stuff made my hair feel extremely dry. It also made my skin break out

Why matte?
Sampled

I don't know what to do with this product. I have long, poker straight hair that is naturally shiny. I don't mind something to help create a little wave or volume but why would someone want a matte finish on their hair? The scent of this product is also overpowering. Not for me.

Overpowering scent

The scent of this is just too strong to have floating around my face all day. Gave it away.

Why
Sampled

Why do I keep getting texture lotion? I have thick hair. Anyway I don’t understand the purpose of a product like this- it seems unnecessary and it’s not clear if it works or just makes the hair look kinda greasy
