Customer Reviews:

Defines curls perfectly

I absolutely love Oribe Curl Gelee! It defines my curls perfectly without leaving them feeling crunchy or stiff. It also adds a nice shine to my hair. Highly recommend!

Not worth the price

I was really disappointed with Oribe Curl Gelee. It didn't do anything special for my curls and definitely wasn't worth the high price tag. I'll be sticking with my drugstore brand from now on.

Great hold without being heavy

Oribe Curl Gelee is my new go-to for holding my curls in place without weighing them down. It also smells amazing and lasts throughout the day. So happy I tried this product!

Decent, but not amazing

I've been using Oribe Curl Gelee for a few weeks now and while it's a decent product, I wouldn't say it's amazing. It defines my curls okay, but doesn't really add any extra volume or bounce. It's just alright.

Left my hair feeling sticky

Unfortunately, Oribe Curl Gelee left my hair feeling sticky and weighed down. It also didn't hold my curls as well as I had hoped. I'll be returning this product and trying something else.

Not sure if it's worth the price

I'm still on the fence about Oribe Curl Gelee. It's a decent product, but I'm not sure if it's worth the high price tag. I'll have to keep using it and see if it grows on me.

Product Summary:

The Oribe Curl Gelee is a hair styling product designed to provide a solid hold on curls with a slight shine, effectively enhancing and adding luster to curls. It features a light and refreshing scent, a blend of citrus and floral notes, creating a clean and uplifting aroma. This product is excellent at defining and emphasizing natural curls, offering a bouncy curl pattern without leaving hair crunchy or sticky.

Its lightweight, gel-like texture ensures easy and even application, leaving hair soft and bouncy, avoiding the stiffness or crunchiness often associated with curl-defining products. Priced between $40 and $60, the Curl Gelee is particularly effective on very thick curly hair, adding both definition and moisture. However, it might weigh down fine, thin hair.

While the product is on the pricier side, its longevity means a little goes a long way, and frequent repurchasing is unnecessary. It does not necessitate daily hair washing and washes out easily without leaving any residue or buildup. Overuse can lead to an overpowering scent, and excessive application might cause frizz in dry hair, especially in humid conditions.
