I am a bit skeptical about trying new products for my hair. My hair is curly and it was natural all my life. Around a year ago I decided to change something in my appearance and began dyeing the hair blonde. One of the problems I faced is that since I have bleached my hair, it became dry on the ends. Now it needs extra moisturization every time I wash it. Another issue I would like to solve is the way that I get shrinkage just after the day I wash the hair which generally ends with my hair in twist.
I have been searching for appropriate treatment since I dyed my hair. I know it always takes time for everyone to find the best products for your hair type. For me it was a long process… To be honest, I do not have a lot of hair care products that could help me to manage my color and curls. I use L’Oreal Professionnel Serie Expert Vitamino Color Resveratrol Shampoo and Conditioner and L’Oreal Professionnel Serie Expert Curl Contour after I shampoo and condition the hair I style my curls.
A few years ago a huge hair care company Oribe launched a line for natural hair of all types “Highly Textured”. I was curious if this collection is as great as people say or is it a good advertising campaign. I decided to try out some products from the line so I ordered a few samples to see how it works with my hair type.
The product is quickly absorbed, does not stick the strands and does not leave grease and stickiness. The lotion softens and moisturizes the hair, facilitates combing and styling. Key ingredients of this detangler are complex of coconut, mango and cocoa oils, extracts of edelweiss, watermelon and lychee, which has a powerful antioxidant effect, prevents premature aging of the skin, the loss of keratin locks, eliminates flaking and inflammation. It was the first time in a while that the product fit really well with the hair and scalp.
Up next I applied Oribe’s Curl Gelee all over the hair. The product defines and smoothes curls without any waiting. Next step was Styling Butter Curl Enhancing Creme. I proceeded it throughout the hair and styled it as I wanted. This curl enhancing product instantly melts into hair and defines coily curls. It smells so good! A combination of shea butter and avocado oil makes the hair softer and manageable.
Usually the next day my hair did not look that great. For my big surprise the first time in a while the curls were spot-on and did not stick together. In the morning my hair was a bit damp which is good. With other products the hair was completely dry as I did not moisturize it at all! The color was golden and shiny as well.
Overall, I am happy with the effect Oribe Highly Textured collection has on my hair. So if you have curly hair and you struggle with its moisturization I highly recommend you this hair care line.
