One look at the brand and you'll fall in love, but you'll stay in love thanks to the minimally-scented, hair-nourishing formulas that make the wash-and-go a cinch. And not to bury the lede, but everything in the line is $12. "Odele was born out of a want (slash need) for a high-quality, clean formula that didn't break the bank, and of course, we wanted it to be chic and something you're proud to display," says co-founder Lindsay Holden. Her goal with Odele? To create a product "that met our high expectations for performance, but we felt good about sharing with those who shared our showers," she says.
Within Odele's line are there are three different shampoo-conditioner collections, each meant to either volumize, smooth, or help define curls. Out of the shower, there are also three stylers: an air-dry crème, a leave-in conditioner, and a texturizing salt spray. While the line is relatively edited, from what we've tested, the products are able to achieve results on their own, so you don't have to layer them the way you might have to with other products.
"Historically we've been trained to find our best and highest quality items in salons, but I think expectations are shifting for the drugstore and mass market," says Holden. Co-founder Britta Chatterjee adds that indie brands are shaking up the landscape, and retailers like Target are leaning into this opportunity to bring their consumers this new generation of goods. "So the old rules of mass versus high-end don't universally apply... and hoorah for that," she says. Amen. The drugstore hair-care world is about to rival salon products, and it's about time.
