        Best For Normal Hair 2016

        Oribe Signature

        Best For Normal Hair 2016
        WINNER 2016

        Oribe Signature

        We love how chic these shiny, sculptural containers look perched in our showers—but it’s what’s on the inside that
        counts, right? In that case, the formulas are equally magical, says N.Y.C. stylist Nathaniel Hawkins, noting that the duo targets problems from dryness to frizz on a range of textures. It’s got gentle coconut and cornderived cleansers and keratin-based strengtheners, but as the suds build, the only thing you’ll likely notice is the woodsy, citrus-tinged fragrance. It’s sublime.

Though formulated for normal hair, it’s just as gentle on color-treated Brazilian blowouts, says L.A. hairstylist Jen Blanchard.

        A complex of glucose, proteins, and lipids adds shine and elasticity, says N.Y.C. colorist Sharon Dorram. This clever pair deposits more nutrients on dry ends than on healthy roots, leaving hair “soft but not flat,” says Dorram.
