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
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
A little goes a long way! I have fine,frizzy, waves I put a GOLF BALL SIZE amount in my hands and work it threw my wet hair. I then make medium sized twists in my hair (front pieces always twist away from the face) let the twists air dry or blow dry then holding twists loose in your fingers and blow dry nozzle pointed down. If air drying you should manipulate hair with fingers as it drys to break up any stiffness.
Do this and you'll have incredible hair!
Seriously. Don't put this on wet hair. I know it's weird, but use it on dry hair and it gives you nice texture. It's not really what I was looking for, but I kept it because I love the smell.3
I really, really, really wanted to love this product. It smells great, has many positive reviews and I believed would make my hair look like I had just wrapped up a photoshoot for a sports magazine. None of that happened and my hair just ended up looking like a clump of hair. It was overly crunchy, it wouldn't move (end with a fan on it) and I couldn't wait to wash it out.2
This product is great! I really like the way it helps my waves remain wavy without making it sticky or dry. It feels a bit different than a regular mousse, maybe because it is suppose to make the hair feel like being at the beach. That doesn't bother me though. I really does work…it is hard to find a product that does what it says it is going to do!5
very sticky and crunchy curls as a result. My hair felt instantly dirty. I tried 4x with smaller amounts each time. I have thin hair so may be wrong product for my hair type.3
My hair stylist taught me to use this product when you hair is dry. This is the perfect product for styling lobs. A little goes a long way...make sure to rub it in our palms first and then lightly touch on the areas where you want texture. I even put a little at the top of my crown for fly-aways. Just start with a little product because it can easily be too sticky and gross if you apply too much (I made that mistake the first time I used it).4
