No crunch mousse!

Oribe styling products dominate my styling arsenal. The dry texturizing spray is a must have, and this curl shaping mousse is the best I have used. It smells divine (like all of their products), and leaves absolutely ZERO crunch. I usually put it on damp hair, and then to give a little extra oomph, I add a small amount once hair is about 75% dry. It's worth trying if you have curly/wavy hair! Leaves no build up, washes easily, and doesn't make hair feel gunky.

Nothing Special

I was really disappointed by this product. I have been using Ouidad products for awhile and was looking to change it up. This mousse does nothing special for my curly hair and is a huge disappointment given the hefty price tag. Not worth it and I will be going back to Ouidad.

I have long, naturally wavy hair. I'm a new mom and a low-maintenance air-dry kind of girl. My hair is thick, long and wavy. My problem is my top layers curl perfectly and my bottom layers tend to stay straight. This stuff, applied casually post-shower, singlehandedly makes my hair look unbelievably perfect! I shower before bed, work a small amount of this stuff into damp hair and voila! I wake up with hair that looks intentionally and, should I say it? Styled! My best friends are easy to be around with. I think this guy just made it into my inner circle.

Wanted to love

I REALLY wanted to love this, as I do my many other Oribe styling products, but it just didn't work out for me.

I have very frizzy curly hair and this couldn't tame much of the frizz. I tried and tried. I was hesitant to buy the full size, but I did although I couldn't find a whole lot of reviews and the reviews I did find were mixed. I decided to try it because it's Oribe, and I've never used anything Oribe I did not love.

It doesn't leave a crunch and it's not heavy, and it gives okay volume. It left me frizzy and not much different than if I had nothing in my hair. It did not define my curls very well either.

Not as good as their other products

I feel this mousse made my curls more frizzy, it did not provide the volume and bounce that I like. I wish it was a great product because you definitely pay enough for it. If you are debating on this product, save your money.
