Customer Reviews:

Great Hold!

I absolutely love Oribe Rock Hard Gel. It holds my hair in place all day long without feeling crunchy or sticky.

Not Worth the Price

I was really disappointed with Oribe Rock Hard Gel. It didn't hold my hair any better than cheaper gels I've tried and it made my hair feel greasy.

Great Scent

The scent of Oribe Rock Hard Gel is amazing. It's not overpowering, but it still leaves my hair smelling fresh all day long.

Mixed Feelings

I have mixed feelings about Oribe Rock Hard Gel. It does hold my hair well, but it also makes it feel a little dry and brittle.

Flaky Residue

I was really disappointed with Oribe Rock Hard Gel. It left a flaky residue in my hair that was impossible to brush out.

Not as Strong as Advertised

Oribe Rock Hard Gel is okay, but it doesn't hold my hair as well as I thought it would. I had to reapply it several times throughout the day.

The Oribe Rock Hard Gel is a premium styling product known for its strong hold without leaving residue. It features a distinctive sweet and musky fragrance that stays in the hair even after washing.
