Formula specifics

100% Natural Signature Scent

No artificial ingredients made the cut in the creation of Odele’s signature haircare scent. We call it Marine, and it’s a 100% natural balanced blend made up of watery green notes, cucumber, oakmoss, ylang-ylang and other florals.

Key Ingredients

Amaranth and rice tein are the key active ingredients within the Odele line. Working together to nourish hair from root to tip, fortifying hair against damage, they promote overall hair health and drive benefits that range from increased shine and manageability to fuller volume and better movement.

About the formula

The no-lather shampoo is formulated to act like a magnet for impurities; pulling them out from your hair without pulling out the natural oils which are so important for textured hair to retain. This chelating process is then best complemented by our most moisture rich conditioners.

Happy curls!

Purchased shampoo & conditioner hoping it would ring light and life back to neglected curly hair. Hair that is always tied up as it was dry and unmanageable.. The first use resulted in beautiful, bouncy, shiny curls. She’s only 12 but is delighted with her new look!

I’m obsessed

I’m so happy I found this brand. I picked it up because of the cute packaging and was curious how a no-lather shampoo would work for me. I got the conditioner too! My hair is very frizzy but this stuff seriously works wonders. My hair has never felt healthier and soft. The smell is a major bonus too.

Best company ever

These products are the best you will ever get in this price range and they spark happiness. The colors are beautiful and their customer service is UNREAL (so kind and personal and thoughtful). I will love this brand FOREVER

I have fine, thin, low porosity hair that ranges from 2B - 3A waves/curls. Finding products that don't weigh my hair down are SUPER hard to find, almost impossible. Odele shampoo and conditioner are game changers! The shampoo is lightweight, and I don't need a ton to make my scalp feel clean. The conditioner has the most fantastic slip and provides enough moisture until my next wash day, 2-3 days later. Can't say enough good things about these products!

Love this product!

I've used so many curl products over the years and Odele now has a place at the top of my list of favorites! I absolutely love the neutral, fresh scent of the entire curl line. The non-lather shampoo yields results comparable to more expensive high-end hair care lines. The conditioner left my curls feeling soft and smooth, and the air-dry styler left my curls defined, light and bouncy. Odele now has a permanent spot in my hair care routine- I love that I can use it for my kids, too! Can’t say enough about the goodness of this product!

This is a product like no other I've tried or seen available in that it has the consistency of a co-wash or conditioner, but has the scalp cleansing abilities of a typical lathering shampoo. It is mild, but truly cleanses the scalp and hair. They key to this product I've found is to be sure to add water a little at a time until you can really work it into the scalp and through the hair. I have very fine but naturally curly (3a/b) hair and a very sensitive scalp and I am just so impressed with this product. I'm here to order more because everyone in the house wants to use it. Please don't change this product Odele!

This shampoo is amazing (along with the conditioner to go with it). It helps our curly hair be smooth and shiny. We get excited to take a shower at our house with these products!

Amazing. All of the products are incredible.

Great No-Lather Shampoo

I really love this curl-friendly, no-lather shampoo. The smell is fresh and not over-powering. It cleansed my color-treated curly hair well, and the best part was that my hair felt silky smooth afterwards when I rinsed. I am generally not very loyal when it comes to shampoo, but I loved this stuff and will definitely but again.

Hit the ball out of the park

I have very thin but very naturally curly hair. I have tried so many products and only a few have ever been quality enough to use consistently. Odele has hit the ball of out the park. The shampoo is very soft and cleanses well, there is no residue and it attacks anything left behind from other non-Odele products. I even took it with me to my last cut and my stylist loved it too! I definitely recommend!

Love love love!!!

I never thought I would find an alternative to my 100 dollar a bottle Aveda shampoo, but this is better! I can wash and go, and my hair looks great! Thank you!

Best curl shampoo

I have always been super picky about my hair products. I have 3b curls that dry out if I shampoo more than once or twice a week. I had a shampoo that was working but it was so expensive that I found myself washing my hair less in order to conserve it. Gross! I was skeptical that Odele's shampoo could do the same for me but in fact, it's even better!! Not only is it a third of the cost, but my hair feels softer, more moisturized and bouncier using Odele than ever before.

Curl family

I have no less than 4 different shampoos and conditioners in my shower today and this was the first shampoo I have used that not only was not drying - while washing your hair - but allowed me to comb through my curls prior to even having to use conditioner. The curl defining shampoo, conditioner, and leave in made our family wash day so much easier. My husband, son and my hair were left clean, soft and conditioned. I will be replacing all of my other brands with this as there is no need for anything else!

I have 3a curls and am always on the hunt for haircare products that can moisturize without weighing everything down. I absolutely LOVE Odele’s Curl Defining options - both the shampoo and conditioner have great slip in the shower and leave my curls shiny and moisturized. I also use the leave-in conditioner and top it off with my own light hair gel to make sure the definition lasts all day. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Oh so rich!

The Curl Defining No Lather Shampoo is unbelievably rich and creamy. It leaves my hair so soft. I love the scent...It is so fresh and clean. Can’t wait to try the Texturizing Sea Salt Spray.
