My fave for thin hair
Purchased

This is my second time purchasing this, although the first time was from another place (Birchbox is now my permanent hair hub ;)). I apply a golf ball sized amount to my roots/midsection of my hair, and then the light shine moisturizing cream to my ends (not sold on here in the light version, but the regular version). I blow dry and my hair is given lovely volume and it holds for most of the day! Which is a dream, as my hair is SO thin that no products usually keep it looking voluminous and fresh. Great product, truly love it for super fine hair.

Very average
Purchased

I was very excited to try this, but didn't find it to be any better than any drugstore brand I've used in the past. It does smell great, but I find the scent to be very faint. I can't even smell it once my hair is dry. I do like that my hair still feels very silky and smooth after using it, but don't feel like it really does anything in terms of adding volume or hold to my hair. This stuff is pretty outrageously expensive, and nothing about it justifies the price.

Nothing special
Purchased

Not any different than any other similar mousse product. Not worth the price. Expected more based on the description. Disappointed.

best mousse EVER

you can see the difference in your hand. search for videos online, its amazing the texture of this super mousse. Im getting ready to order my second bottle, i will never buy another mousse again. not to mention it really adds volume to my roots when i blow dry and i can use it through my whole hair for even more volume.

Full bouncy hair
Purchased

I loved the smell & how the mousse quickly was absorbed into the hair. My hair after blow drying/styling was shiny & full bouncy hair. I wished it lasted the whole night but no luck. I used hair spray which I rarely use. Can't expect the impossible. I still love this product & a must have for a great blow out.

For fine thin hair
Purchased

This plumps up my hair very nicely. Only downside is it's a little messier day 2 than without the product. Definitely worth it!

The Smell is Worth every penny
Purchased

I LOVE Oribe products and would literally pay just for the way they smell. I have pretty long, flat, straight hair and volume has just never been in the cards for me. I also can't stand stiff hair and I do run my fingers through my hair so anything sticky bothers me. For this reason I've neverrr used any product in my hair. This mousse though has zero stickiness or weight which I love. I use it on damp hair and then I use a round brush (I use the Spornette DeVille Boar Bristle Round 2 ½ in. Hair Brush also bought on Birchbox. I think it's good but I've never used round brushes so I have nothing to compare it to). When I've been in a hurry, I've also used the mousse with no brush and drying my hair upside down. The mouse and brush combo give me awesome, voluminous, but smooth hair. When I go without the brush it's not quite as smooth but the volume is still there.

The only negative is that the volume does tend to fall after a few hours. However, this may just be the nature of my hair that it's too long and naturally flat. Also likely due to the fact that I run my fingers through it, probably taking out the volume. I think Oribe is a bit pricey, but if you have any birchbox points, I would totally go for this product. And, as I said the smell of Oribe alone would make me buy it even with no results!

Works miracles

I am on my second can of this. It gives my hair great volume and smells wonderful. It can be crunchy on day two.

It does do it!
Purchased

One of the things that I love about Oribe products are that they actually do what they say they are going to. This plumps the hair right up. Provides excellent hold. Great for a nice blowout with curl and bend while providing those thinner girls a more full look. Works great with the Oribe Volumista!
