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.
My stylist always finishes my hair with this product and it it great. Pros are that it gives you lots of control, shape and piece-y style where you apply it (for that easy tousled or styled look) and it smells great. My two cautionary comments are that: 1. I look great the day I use it, but the next morning I have a crazy post-product bed head of smooshed hair after I use this, so it's not for gals who don't wash their hair every day. And 2. you have to REALLY shake the can for 30 seconds or more to mix the ingredients inside so the mousse coming out of the can is the right combination of ingredients.
If you wash you hair every day, and you don't mind heavily shaken (not stirred) cannister management, try Surfcomber!
This stuff is great! I have blonde, stick-straight fine hair (but a lot of it). I use this stuff on damp hair and let it air dry. It gives my hair body that my hair otherwise never has
If used right, it works well. A little goes a long way and if you don't disperse it through your hair immediately, it can dry kind of crusty. It's very sticky.
I think it works very well for that tousled look. Not so much for that polished look. I also like the way curls look/hold after hair has air dried with this in it, then styled.
If you're going for effortlessly beachy, this is your product!
I've been using this for a year and I love it. It doesn't actually give my hair a tousled look though- for that I need my curing iron and some beach wave spray. It does however give my limp straight hair texture and volume.4
I love the smell of this mousse. It gives great texture to my hair when I don't feel like curling. When I do curl however, I tend not to use this because it does weigh it down. I used this mostly on second-day hair to keep the volume.5
I have thin fine hair and often find that mousses are a bit too heavy for me. This is great, because I can put it in my damp hair, twist bits of it (or just toussle) and my hair will look thicker and more textured without looking fried or crispy.5
Occasionally I will just let my hair dry with going through the whole dry and curl time. This mouse works well. May work a little too well. I will have to use less so it doesn't stick bug hunks of hair together when you scrunch it.4
My hair is curly but fine, thin and wimpy. I hoped this product would add some volume and texture. What I got instead was a sticky icky rat's nest. BIG disappointment.2
This mousse is fantastic for creating that French"I just rolled out of bed" volume and texture. I have fine hair cut into a layered long bob and this makes it look so good. I just comb a golf ball sized amount through wet hair, blow dry upside down, polish the ends with a round brush and it is perfectly styled. The volume and texture last all day too! I Love this product! I am sure it would work great for air drying in the summer as well .5
The surcomber mousse is pretty much hands down amazing! Work into wet hair and style! Great hold, great oribe smell, and great texture!5
This is a product I absolutely can't live without. I've been nursing a travel size of this guy for quite a long time and it's lasted forever because I haven't actually used it on wet hair. That's right! I have very thick, coarse, naturally wavy hair and what I do is use other products on it while it's damp, let it air dry as much as possible and hit it with the diffuser when needed. Then, when it has set somewhat from drying, I take a small amount of the mousse and coat my hands with it and, instead of raking it through my hair with my fingers, I kind of grab sections and gently squeeze and scrunch the product into my curls. It's very sticky so you can't move it around or comb through dry hair after it's applied. However, it gives the most amazing shine and separates my locks into smooth pieces. The hold is amazing and...I don't even know how to describe it exactly. It's just absolutely awesome for thick, coarse, wavy or curly hair. It makes it effortless and controls the hair while giving it fantastic shine and you only need a very small amount of product on dry hair which extends the life of this pricey beauty. That's why I lightly coat my hands with it and squeeze the hair instead of putting a blob directly into the hair and trying to work it in. If you do that it will make that spot too crunchy and then you can't move the product around a lot on the hair. So it's important to get it on your hands and distribute onto the hair by gently squeezing sections at a time. You also need to work quickly. It's sticky on the hands but dries very quickly and once it's dry, it's totally dry, so there's just shine and no stickiness. If you wait too long to work it in it will dry on your hands and not transfer to the hair. Play around with this one to find how it works best for you because it's a winner once you get it down.5
