To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I hemmed and hawed quite a bit about getting this. My stylist had used this on me after the cut and talked it up quite a bit. Yes my hair smelled divine and felt oh so soft but now in hindsight, hair after a professional cut and blow dry always feels soft. Anyway, I bought this hoping to recreate the same experience at home but failed. It smells great but doesn't do anything for my thick wavy hair. It has some shiny/shimmery particles in the cream that would make hair appear shiny but the hair follicles would need to be really smooth (aka straight hair) to really make a difference. The shine doesn't really show on my hair type. It doesn't soften my hair, nor make it appear shiny and sometimes even makes it appear greasy if I did not apply properly and got a glob on. So I give it 3 stars meaning it is ok. Not worth the money in my opinion.
I have thick, long dark blonde hair with a slight wave that has the tendency to poof out and look dry and frizzy at the ends. I was looking for a product to work as a blow-dry styling aid and to help seal and smooth the ends post blow dry or when my hair needed a touch up. (My former go-to product from another line has been discontinued.) The Oribe Cream has been a disappointment. It works reasonably well to smooth my hair when I apply it liberally to damp hair before blow drying, but really does nothing to combat poof/dry texture when applied to dry hair. It does impart shine when applied to dry hair, but even that doesn't seem to last very long. For the price, I was expecting more.
