For a quick pick-me-up on hair that’s gone limp, we like Oribe’s Dry Texturizing Spray.

Oribe

Birchbox Breakdown

This expertly formulated mousse gets us excited to channel the 80s and do it up big. And unlike certain styling practices of yore (uh, teasing, we’re looking at you), this one is actually good for your strands. Use this hair-strengthening mousse to build out a gorgeous, larger-than-life ‘do that’s soft to the touch and never, ever crunchy.

How it Works

Each luxurious pouf of mousse plumps up the hair shaft for major volume. Panthenol helps thicken and condition strands, while a blend of polymers provides long-lasting, flexible hold. Meanwhile, Oribe’s Signature Complex defends against the spectrum of environmental damage, from photoaging to dryness. Lastly, hair-repairing hydrolyzed wheat protein provides heat protection.

How to Use

Shake before use. Dispense a golf ball-sized amount into hands, work between your palms, and scrunch throughout damp hair. Use more mousse as needed for longer hair. Blow dry for exaggerated, bigger-is-better volume.

I really use this when I want my hair to smell like perfume. I love love the smell, and it really makes my hair softer.

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.

Love this mousse!
Purchased

Although it tends to be a little more pricey then what I would like to spend on a mousse, I am in love. All Oribe products smell great and this product doesn't fail to deliver. Gives me great hold and volume in my fine hair.

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.

Big volume, no frizz!
Purchased

I am guilty of blow drying my hair every morning so I have quite a few split ends. I switched to this from a drug store brand... so happy I did! I was concerned about the price but it is SO worth it not to frizz out by 2 pm!! This mousse gives great volume and to my otherwise flat hair, still allows it to be touchable and soft AND has a great scent, major plus!

Love it!

I loved the texture it gave to my hair and it kept my waves from going flat all day. Especially with the humidity in NYC! Fabulous product! Must buy!

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.

Smells great, but that's about it
Purchased

I was excited to try this based on the reviews, but it did absolutely nothing for my hair. I put it in before blow drying and it didn't do anything to add volume and it didn't even add any "hold" to my hair. It just left my hair with a great smell to it....which does not justify it's cost.

Miracle in a Bottle
Purchased

I love big hair. I was running out of my old volumizing mousse (Bumble & bumble), and thought I'd give this Oribe mousse a try. I am SO glad that I did. I'd recently purchased the Oribe texturing spray and was very happy with the product. This is just as good. It provides wonderful volume without the sticky texture I'd found with my old mousse. My hair is incredibly soft, shiny, and BIG, all coupled with that amazing Oribe smell (my boyfriend compliments it all the time). This product, coupled with Moroccan oil on my ends, makes for a great hair day every time.
