When it comes to skin, Victoria Beckham is one of my go-to resources for spot-on product recommendations and skincare tips thanks to her constantly updated beauty highlight reel on Instagram. In fact, I'm so obsessed I even spent a whole week doing VB's skincare routine and can testify that this is a lady whose seal of approval is definitely to be trusted.
I'll be honest, though: I've never given Beckham's hair much thought. Despite dabbling with highlights, pixie crops and extensions over the years, Victoria has settled firmly on a simple mid-length cut for the best part of the last decade, and while it's definitely a classic hairstyle, it isn't one that I've paid much attention to. However, there's one thing I will say about VB's hair: It always looks seriously well-maintained and oh-so-shiny.
So when I discovered there was a certain brand of shampoo and conditioner Beckham swears by when she washes her hair at home, I knew I couldn't keep it to myself. After all, as a girl who's often left with dull, dry strands (regardless of how many hair masks and oils I apply), I'm willing to try anything with the potential to add a little lustre to my hair.
The products in question are from the luxurious haircare brand Oribe—a hairdresser-founded brand that provides salon-standard formulations that can be used at home. Beauty editors and stylists are obsessed with it, and I have to say that the brand turns out some of the best-smelling products in the business. And it turns out VB agrees: "For products, I use on my own. I like Oribe's shampoo and conditioner because they smell incredible," Beckham told Into the Gloss.
Of course, when she isn't doing her own wash-and–blow-dry at home, Beckham makes no secret of the fact that she relies on experts to get her hair looking its best. "I'm better at doing my own makeup than my own hair, which is why half the time it's just scraped up or off my face into a bun," she said. "I get my hair colour done in L.A., and then I bring packets of hair colour over to the UK and have someone put it on here when I need it. I use a lot of glosses as well, as the [London] water can absolutely strip it."
