Keep hair luscious from step one with Oribe Signature Shampoo

Oribe

Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How it Works

This heat-protective formula features the Oribe Signature Complex, a blend of watermelon, lychee, and edelweiss flower extracts that protects hair from photoaging and environmental stressors. Meanwhile, an intensely hydrating blend of safflower seed oil, glycerin, and wheat amino acids keeps hair glossy, moisturized, and frizz-free—without feeling heavy.

How to Use

Shake can before use. Dispense a generous pouf of mousse into hands, massage between palms, and scrunch throughout damp hair. Style as usual.

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).

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.

LOVE THIS STUFF!!!

I read the other reviews, and unlike the others, I use this on damp hair and blow dry. It makes my hair look like I have twice as much!! It is very sticky to apply and at first I didn't like it until I saw the results. The curl and texture lasts in my hair up to three days. Body and bounce. After trying dozens of products, I will definitely buy this even though it is costly. I rec'd the small size in my box and I still have it. I don't use it every time I wash my hair because I am trying to preserve it. I will however purchase the large size because I will not need to use any other styling products to achieve great results. I will definitely try it on dry hair also to see if I like it as much as when it is wet.

Love!!
Purchased

I originally tried this as a sample and despite not loving mousse usually, I find Oribe's Surfcomber Mousse to work fabulously! I just scrunch it onto my hair after its dry and get instant results. I just love the fragrance, too!!

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.

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.

Tousled Dream!

Surer girl hair but with super shine! Best used on dry hair and less is best. Will definitely be buying full size of this.

lOVE THIS PRODUCT

This is my first review of a product on Birch box, but I have to have the full size of this product. I let my hair dry naturally and then put this on my dry hair and love what it does to my hair. It smells heavenly and makes me feel sexy with bouncy, curly beach hair. I have always loved the look but could never find the right product and now I am in heaven since I found this product.

Remember a little goes a long way.

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.
