The Only Product That Tames My Frizz Into Defined Curls

Apart from a brief period as a child when all my hair fell out after a nasty bout of chicken pox, I’ve always had super curly hair. More specifically for the experts out there, my hair is a blend of 3A and 3B curls - yes, very curly.

My journey to frizz-free, perfect curls has been a long, bumpy one. From silicone-heavy serums to a hair straightener that I think I used twice before giving up, my hair has been through a hell of a lot.

But, ladies and gentlemen, I’ve finally found something that ticks all the boxes. This one product literally changed the way I style my hair.


Tell Me More:

I bet you just want me to tell you what product it is, so I will, but you have to promise to read my review that I lovingly crafted below. The magic product is Oribe’s Styling Butter, from their recently expanded range of products for curly and textured hair.

  • It leaves my hair soft and hydrated thanks to the luxurious blend of natural butters

  • My curls are lightly defined with a natural look and feel (no crunchiness, tick!)

  • No drying time means moisture is locked in and frizz is sealed out

  • It’s fast and easy to use (I don't need to coat each individual curl for definition)

  • The formula is silicone-free so won’t build-up on the hair or cause more dryness

What Makes This Product Different From Everything Else I've Tried?

The reason this cream is so unique is that it combines two key elements to fight frizz: hydration and hold. It's rich but not heavy, leaving natural definition without that telltale crispy feel that I despise.

Best of all, it only takes a few seconds for improvements. I apply about a walnut-sized amount to damp hair, focusing on the lengths and ends and let my hair air dry.

If I have a bit more time, I’ll clip my hair up on top of my head for more volume through the roots as it dries - but let’s be real, 99% of the time when I’m styling my hair in the morning, I need to be out the door in 10 minutes or less.

If you don't believe my rave review, maybe you'll believe Allure editor, Jihan Forbes who was convinced curly hair styling products "typically didn't do anything for her curly, Afro-textured hair".

"Though the Gelée and Styling Butter are both quite thick and moisturizing, they dried to a weightless feel on my curls. Seriously. My hair was bouncing absolutely everywhere, and it remained defined for days. Not only did I smell expensive but honey, I felt expensive after using this stuff."
