Pregnancy Safe Products from Oribe

Pregnancy Safe Products from Oribe

Pregnancy safe beauty products can be super difficult and confusing. I have an entire guide devoted to what products are safe to use while pregnant including information on what ingredients to avoid while pregnant and a huge list of pregnancy safe skincare products. The list has gotten so large that I’ve decided to start listing brands in their own individual posts.

Here you’ll find pregnancy safe products from Oribe as of 9/9/2020. If it is not safe, I’ll tell you why. All of the products meet my pregnancy safe criteria. If they release a new product that is not listed here, please comment below and I will add it. Note I will link to every product directly to avoid confusion. You’ll know exactly which product I mean.

Please refer to my post on pregnancy safe makeup, where I explain why you don’t need to worry about your mascara, powders, eyeliners, brow products, etc. I do not review these products.

How to Request a Product Review

I try to review all of the products that I can when I publish a list. Note, I am in the US and I only have access to US products. Please don’t be rude if I skipped your favorite cleanser, when items are out of stock sometimes they aren’t on the brand’s site, or maybe you are in Asia and I am in the US.

I reserve the comments on each post for reviews of product from that brand, this makes it easier for others to find products later. Please only ask about Oribe on this post, I will delete other product questions. You can find other brands here. If your brand is not included, please ask on the brand list post.

Which hair products do you need to worry about?

Technically, none. Most OBs will tell you not to worry about any hair products. Your hair is a dead protein, and it can not absorb anything. It’s amazing how pregnancy brain can take over and we forget that simple fact!

Personally, I screened products that would sit on my scalp for a few minutes (aka- shampoos, scrubs, etc). My thought process was that those products would be similar to a face wash, even if washed off right away it sits there for a bit. So, on this list you’ll find products that sit on your scalp. This is shampoo, scalp treatments and root styling products. Other styling products should just be on the hair shaft, and if you’re worried about sprays being inhaled, I recommend holding your breath while you spray and then step away a few feet. Conditioner and treatment masques don’t usually touch your scalp, though I have screened a few masques that people sometimes apply up to their roots. If you apply any of these further from the scalp, they’re all safe (even if I screened them as not safe).

    Hi – do you know if the dry texturizing spray is safe?

    • 3.18.21
      Christine said:

      Read above about which products to worry about, dry texturizing spray is meant to be used throughout the hair, not at the root.

        My hairdresser advises I use directly on/around the root to gift volume there so just wanted to know if there were any harmful ingredients

      This is fine for pregnancy and nursing. But please read the section about which hair products you need to worry about. Since conditioner should only be applied mid-shaft through the ends, you don’t need to worry about it for pregnancy and nursing

      Please read above about which hair products you need to worry about. Conditioner isn’t meant to be used on your scalp, so you don’t need to worry about it, and since I already screen hundreds of products a week, I didn’t look at them.
      This one has gluconolactone, and is not pregnancy safe. Except you don’t need to worry if it’s not on your scalp.

    Stephanie said:

    I just checked the Oribe website, and noticed that the Gold Lust Repair and Restore Shampoo contains Salicylic acid, and the Gold Lust Transformative Masque contains Gluconolactone. Are these actually not Pregnancy safe?

    • 7.8.21
      Christine said:

      Sigh. I made this listed based upon the ingredient lists on Sephora, as Oribe didn’t list anything on their site at the time. And that shampoo actually didn’t have salicylic acid when I made it (I know for sure, as it was the one I was using at the time and the ingredient list matched my bottle in my shower). They may have had a reformulation as those ingredients are now listed. I’m sorry, they are ok for nursing but not pregnancy

        Hi! I was curious about the Oribe Nourishing Hair oil. I know this isn’t really supposed to go on the scalp but I just wanted to be extra careful and check if it’s ok. Thank you so so much!

          It’s ok to be extra careful, but keep in mind that there’s a point at which it’s ok to let it go and not worry about it (this is me giving you permission to do that) 🙂 It’s actually part of the reason that I don’t usually review products that you don’t need to worry about (that and I’m often overwhelmed with product reviews of products that should be screened). Pregnancy hormones are really great at taking over and causing worry about everything, to the point that the anxiety just takes everything over.

            Thank you for this! If it hadn’t been such a struggle to get here I think I’d be less worried but I’m hoping as things progress and with a little more time I can relax. I can’t thank you enough. ❤️

            Christine said:

            Ok, good! I worry that people are consumed with worry and anxiety about these things, and I would say something if I was your baby’s doctor in the newborn nursery (I do that a lot, I love being in the nursery), so I should speak up here 🙂
