Our hair is an important part of our identity. It’s part of our culture, and a proud expression of who we are.

For too long, we have had to make the choice between protecting our beautiful hair and enjoying the many benefits of finding our place in the water. I created Obé so we no longer need to choose. We can have both.

Beautifully unique, just like you

Obé has been innovatively developed to behave just like fabric. Carefully designed to be thin, whilst being durable, stretchy, and waterproof.

The flat piece of material is not pre-tied, so that it can be applied just like a traditional head wrap. You have the ability to control your fit, making styling easier, and more comfortable.

Reduce hairline breakage & damage

Opportunity for all

Obé started for the chance of a better quality of life by creating tools that instil confidence with water, and inspire participation.

It is at the heart of everything we do. We are proud that our waterproof head wraps are for everyone because they have been engineered with our own synthetic rubber formula to be hypoallergenic, with no traces of latex.

Obé started with a promise...

A promise from a mother. One where I would move heaven and earth to make a change so that my daughter and all the women and girls before her could find their place in the water. Without fear, without upset, without worry, just peace, and the opportunity for a better quality of life.
