I've used this for a few weeks and really wasn't impressed until... I truly stripped my hair with multiple coloring processes to fix a "temporary" color.
The products I have are proven products for my color treated to cover grey hair. So I didn't really need a boost product. I thought the Oribe drops were leave in oil & was almost out of my Lanza healing oil.
While you can use the drops on their own, this product is really designed as a boost. When I used the "5" recommended drops on my shoulder length damp hair, I was less than impressed. Mixed it with multiple products & results weren't life altering. The amt I would need to use this solo would not be cost effective.
Then, the bleaching happened. Then the coloring. Then the torture. Even with intensive conditioning treatments my hair was a shipwreck. Knotty & a mess.
A few drops of the Oribe in my Lanza oil, restored my bounce. Tried it in my Redken Align styling cream & felt run-your-fingers-through blown dry, softness. Last trial was my HairRx curl conditioning cream. My beautiful air dried spirals returned.
If you can make your hair look healthy with one or two products, I don't know you're going to see a lot of difference.
If it takes a village to restore your sacrificed hair to it's former glory, Yeah, Oribe is worth every drop.
4.0 out of 5 starsLightweight and nongreasy. Helps tame frizzies and add shine.

My hair is highlighted a custom red shade that needed and it needed to be bleached down before applying the color. Love the shade, hate the damage. I also have dry hair naturally so I get frazzled ends all the time. I use many products to try to combat that and not have to chop off inches of hair too often. Oribe Power Drops Damage Repair Booster works pretty well. I only use a few drops on my damp hair or I can mix it with other products I am using. I prefer to use it alone, I use around 5 or 6 drops. It is quite thin, clear, and with barely any scent. I only used it on the ends of my hair to avoid my hair looking greasy until recently. It makes my hair look less frizzy and less damaged.
Yesterday, I tried using the drops all over my hair but my scalp and this product didn't weigh my hair down or make it look greasy. It added some shine and made my hair look better. Not a HUGE difference but enough of one that I could see it and the ends really sucked up the hydration and looked healthy. This is a pricey treatment but very concentrated. I would not use more than 6 or 7 drops for my entire bra strap length hair, less is only on the ends. It should last quite a while. I am happy with the results I have been getting and will use this product along with some others I like to add hydration and zap those awful frizzies.
2.0 out of 5 starsVERY Expensive, Doesn't Seem To Work Well

The price on this is insane for what it is. It touts several natural ingredients: * Oribe Signature Complex (Watermelon, Lychee and Edelweiss Flower Extracts) * 2% Hyaluronic Acid Complex * Moringa Seed Extract * Creatine
When you read the bottom of the package, you can see it is water, glycerin, polysorbate 20, propo- this and propo- that, dimethicone (which is what helps it feel light), and a bunch of other cosmetic chemicals.
If you want a Hyaluronic Acid Serum, you can buy a 2% serum for $10,
I didn't notice any beneficial effect with this product. In fact, it made my hair feel a little matted down. I followed teh directions and used just a few drops.
This product is basically just an accessory. Something you can take pictures of for instagram and look cool. I will admit the packaging is nice and the the glass bottle is beautiful. Overall it is extremely aesthetically pleasing. With that being said, it really doesn’t do much. You add these drops to another product as a booster (it says oribe product but I’m not that well off). I added this to my leave in conditioner and really there aren’t any major results. I have a few more good hair days but nothing lasting as far as hydration benefits. Maybe I just need to use it longer. I do think this is ridiculously priced. It should be no more than 40 dollars, but it will last a while as you are only using a couple drops at a time.
4.0 out of 5 starsVery weak smell to it, thin liquid, might help some

I have thin hair, but wavy and prefer it to lay flatter, so I often put something in my hair to weigh it down. It seems like I need more than 5 drops to make any difference, and I can't say it works any better than other, cheaper, products I have used. I don't like a lot of chemical products, so often I revert to my argan, rosehip, or facial hemp oil to rub in my hair. I was also sad to notice hardly any smell to this product, that can often make up for lack of positive effect, that at least it smells good, so I will use it kind of feeling. It does recommend you use it with another Oribe product, which I didn't have, but that you can also use it alone on damp hair. I also thought the bottle was kind of weird, and I feel like I will tip it over when using it it. It might work for some, but I will get something else next time.
4.0 out of 5 starsGreat for any hair type but esp dry

I suffer from aging! Thus, over the years my hair has become finer, drier, and brittle. I've spent loud of money of various products. Though this product is more expensive than your average hair care products--it's worth it in the end. Thanks to this product, my hair is more hydrated. Thus, stronger and looking better. A tiny bit goes a long way So you don't need a giant bottle. Get this as a personal gift for yourself and start getting your hair back in shape! Great for teens that dye their hair a lot!
This helped smooth my curly hair ends, but not anymore than a my usual Argon oil. It's thick and considering you only need a few drops, that small amount covered my ends well. The smell is spectacular, but considering the price, I'm not sure if scent alone is worth the price tag. If money is no object, then this might be for you, but being on a teacher's salary, I'll stick to my Argon oil.
