Customer Reviews:

Great Hold

I love how well this gel serum holds my hair in place without making it look stiff or crunchy. It also adds a nice shine to my hair.

Too Expensive

I can't justify spending this much money on a hair product, even if it does work well. There are plenty of cheaper options that work just as well.

Great for Curly Hair

This gel serum defines my curls beautifully and helps to control frizz. It also doesn't weigh down my hair or make it look greasy.

Mixed Results

I've had some good hair days using this gel serum, but other times it seems to make my hair look dull and lifeless. It's hit or miss for me.

Too Heavy

This gel serum is just too heavy for my fine hair. It makes it look greasy and flat, even when I use a small amount.


This gel serum is okay. It doesn't do anything amazing for my hair, but it doesn't make it look worse either. I probably wouldn't buy it again, but I'll use up what I have.

Product Summary:

The Oribe Gel Serum is a premium hair product known for providing a natural hold and featuring a delightful scent, enhancing its luxurious appeal. Its lightweight, silky texture allows for smooth application, ensuring hair remains residue-free and without stickiness. This serum imparts a healthy, polished shine to the hair.

However, its hold may not last the entire day, and some users have reported an unpleasant mildewy scent. Despite its higher price point, the Oribe Gel Serum is gentle on the scalp and well-suited for daily use, making it an excellent choice for gray and coarse hair types in particular.

The serum is easy to wash out, not causing any damage or irritation to the hair or scalp. It's crucial to use the product in moderation, as over-application can result in a lack of hold, diminishing its effectiveness.
