I was using Kerastase Nutritive Nectar Thermique ($29.00 on Amazon). When I ran out, I thought Id give this product a try. I'd never used any of the Oribe products and was very excited when it arrived. My hair is long (breast-length,) and wavy (type 2b by most hair charts) and I generally style my hair by blow drying and putting it into large velcro rollers or blowdrying first and using a 1" barrel curling iron to style. For the price tag, I expected this product to be a miracle in a bottle. I wanted my hair to be protected from the heat tools, while being nourished and shinny. While the creme was effective, I don't feel like it lived up to all the claims: Immediately after my blow-out, my hair looked nice but I needed to add moroccan oil for extra shine and a root-spray for extra volume. The second day of my blow-out, my hair looked limp and shapeless. Over all, I was disappointed with the results. For $68, I feel I shouldn't have to play mixologist! I ended up re-ordering my original styling creme from Kerastase and was much happier for half the price.
I'm 40 and my hair is showing signs of aging. I recently got highlights and cut my curly hair chin length. Now I need to flat iron daily and wash and blow dry every 3 days. My hair hates it. The blonde is dry and brittle and the straightening makes it worse. I used this one time and I noticed the change in texture. I used alot. 2nd time I used much less of the product and it feels even better!!! On the 2nd day I don't even need to touch up with the straitening iron! My blonde looks and feels healthy! I also noticed that my volume is also staying with the 2nd day! I thought my highlightening days were over... Maybe not?... Hahhaa
Love this product... Package arrived broken... it had no bottom. Not realizing this I put it in my medicine cabinet. Today I saw a river of product coming down my wall. I try getting a refund online, but this required I send the product back. I called Amazon Customer Care, they offer only online choices, and refuse to waive sending product back I express my disappointment and say it is silly to send an empty broken bottle back... and I have pictures. I disconnect from call, and start refund online. Customer Care person calls me back... I answer after 3 calls in a row. Agent complains about how I spoke to him...I did call him useless. Apparently this is highly offensive. I asked to speak to his manager.... got refund, what allot of work!!! I am leery cosmetics purchased online already...so I think after this brouhaha I will buy the IRL from now on.
Fantastic though pricy product. I’ve tried sooo many products and this works. I have long curly frizzy hair and this really holds a beautiful blow out and makes my hair very easy to work with. I use one pump. Tip: use on the lower 75% of your hair—-not near your scalp or you may get a greasy look. But I love this product and splurge on it as it’s a time saver for me. Even when it rains or it’s humid out this seems to still keep my frizz away !
I use this product before blow drying my hair. I feel that it leaves the ends of my shoulder length hair looking smooth and less dry and damaged. I have thick but fine blonde hair and it sometimes looks damaged even when it is not. This product smooths without weighing down./ I received this product in mid-July . I have used it 2-3 times a week since. I use only one short pump each time. In two short months it is completely empty. I do not feel that this is a good value. I'm very disappointed.
This product is great for my fine, limp hair. So many products that are for root boosting or to thicken my hair leave it feeling heavy and dirty. But not Oribe! I mix a little with a styling cream and then blow dry. The smell is amazing!
