ORIBE SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER

By far, this is my top favorite product line for my hair. Everyone who knows me knows by my work alone. I will always pick quality over quantity – and my hair is no exception to this rule. Oribe hair line is heaven sent, especially if you dye your hair like myself. These products are definitely on the pricier side. However, I don’t mind the splurge, and here’s why. The shampoo formula blends centuries-old healing oils and extracts with modern technology to rejuvenate and strengthen damaged locks from the inside out. Yes I said the inside out! Therefore, every wash revitalizes tired hair, returning it to a healthier, younger state, and simultaneously shields tresses from future damage.

In addition to the rejuvenating and strengthening treatment I get from every wash, I’m obsessed with the scent it leaves on my hair! It never leaves my hair feeling weighed down or dried out. After falling in love with this line, I wanted to try their Gold Lust shampoo. I found this to be the perfect daily shampoo for color treated hair. I have been using this line for years and never has it left my hair color looking dull or faded. Oribe conditioner is just as amazing! For those with dry or damaged hair and split ends, this is what you’re looking for.

It can be used on the skin to soften, smooth and nourish, and on hair to act as a natural barrier to protect against damage and keep hair healthy. Coconut oil also helps protect against damaging free radicals.
