As we all know, there's a wide variety of gorgeous, unique hair types on this earth, from the sleekest of straight strands to the most tightly-coiled curls. That said, with so many different hair types, it's no wonder there are few formulas that work across the board, which is why brands that cater to specific heads of hair with certain formulas really nail it. For over ten years Oribe has created specialized collections for all different kinds of hair, from color-treated to dry and dull to scalp-sensitive and more, and if you've been wondering when Oribe's new Highly Textured Hair Collection drops, you're in luck, because it's finally time. The brand new line includes curated formulas to guarantee moisture and control for anyone with type 4 hair. Kinky, coily girls and boys, rejoice! You might've just stumbled upon some new haircare faves.
Like I said, Oribe creates collections based on specific hair needs, which is what makes shopping their line so simple. When my hair was newly bleached, their Bright Blonde products helped me keep my color radiant, and when my strands felt flat thanks to summertime humidity, the Magnificent Volume line was my go-to. It was always easy for me to find a range of products in the Oribe arsenal that were perfectly crafted for whatever my hair needed — had I been searching for products catered to super curly hair, though, I might've not been as pleased with my results. Oribe's Moisture and Control products were nice, but not extensive, and now that they've added four new game-changers designed with type 4 hair in mind, even more haircare lovers can find exactly what they need.
The gorgeous emerald bottles and jars are gorgeous, no doubt:
But not as gorgeous as hair will look once it experiences the curl-enhancing formulas:
To ensure the products were just right, Oribe enlisted the help of celebrity hairstylist Stacey Ciceron, a natural hair expert and Oribe brand ambassador who could ensure Oribe's formulas were up to par when it came to properly caring for type 4 hair.
Ciceron knows a thing or two about fantastic hair, to say the least:
