Frizz-free, super-soft, silky-shiny hair. Oribe did it again. They just released Cleansing Crème For Moisture and Control that does all of these wonders, in one simple step. I was skeptical, of course (as always), but I was wowed by the results.
Prep yourself for it. The cleansing cream doesn’t foam. Taking a page from the “no ‘poo” revolution that happened a couple of years ago, this cleanser is not a shampoo in the traditional sense. It’s a cream that gently cleans your hair and adds moisturize, shine and a huge smile 🙂 If you’ve ever watched the late-night infomercial for Wen, you’ll know what I’m talking about. You rub the cream into your hair and scalp and let it marinate. Then rinse. You won’t feel that squeaky clean sensation that you get from shampoo, it’ll feel more like after your rinse your conditioner.
The results are awesome. No frizz whatsoever, even in Chicago’s 90+ degree, rainy, humid weather. The no frizz, super shiny and defined waves lasted well from Day 1-3, but definitely needed a clean by Day 4 – but that’s pretty typical for my hair. I tried it again back-to-back to see if this apparent miracle product could replace my other poo/cond combo, but no. This is a once a week product, only to be combined with a “real” shampooing during your 2nd wash of the week. After two consecutive uses my hair didn’t feel as clean, light or bright.
But seriously – nice work, Oribe. I love this product and will happily use it weekly during the summer or on hot vacations when frizz and dry-out are an issue.
