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.

sticky
Purchased

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.

Maybe I'm using this wrong?
Purchased

My hair is naturally wavy and curly AND definitely frizzy. While this seemed to help with the frizz, it felt a little sticky and greasy. I may be using this incorrectly or just too much.

Didn't work with fine hair
Purchased

I have short, straight and fine hair and this made my hair crunchy and not exactly beachy-cool. Like all Oribe products, it smells great.

My stylist's favorite product for me
Purchased

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!

LOVE! Reordering
Purchased

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!

Love it
Purchased

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.

Great for texture
Purchased

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).

Great Product

I actually use this product on my hair when its damp. Then I twist it into sections and let it dry. Once my hair is dry I scrunch my hair, separate some twists, etc. and I love the look. Yes, this product can be crunchy but if you use your hands to scrunch, twist, etc. your hair will be less crunchy. Like others have said, it does smell really good.

Great for texturizing

Note, this is to be used on DRY hair. And, remember less is more. It's easier to add than to try to take away.

I use about a Ping-pong ball size and scrunch through my hair. The result is chunky pieces that look a little shiny but are also somewhat stiff (doesn't bother me). If you are looking for texture that adds some volume, this may be not be the best product as it can get a bit heavy.
