    Comments about Ouidad Curl Immersion Hi-Defining Custard:

    This product replaced my ORS Curl Boosting Jelly, and I finally have the weightless bouncy curls I knew were there after a wash n go. For reference, I have 3c/4a hair. I have had so much success with this on twist outs and wash and go's that I've bought this twice. It smells amazing, my hair has movement and life that no other gel product has delivered. Along with enough hold to make a style last a few days without starting over. My routine is a creamy cleanser , spray leave in in conditioner, Cantu Curl Activator Moisturizing Cream , and this amazing gel (thankfully because of the price, a little goes a long way). For me, perfect wash and go's every single time.

      Comments about Ouidad Curl Immersion Hi-Defining Custard:

      I enjoyed my curls on vacation... the carribeans can be brutal on a girls hair but this lightweight curl taming product was perfect. I had to use larger portions because I have a lot of hair. My favorite part is that is does not dry out the curls at all and it smells terrific!

        The smell of this product is nice and initially I thought the consistency was adequate for my hair.
        Unfortunately, this product is not heavy enough for my 3c, 4a, low porosity hair.
        It might work a little better for those who do not need as much hold.

          I love this product. I used to use DevaCurl products but I didn't like the smell of many of their products and I didn't feel like I got a lot of hold with it. This gives me just the right balance between hold and bounce and makes my curls last DAYS. I have kinky/very curly hair and I feel this is just what I need.

              I stumbled upon this product, merely looking for a nice curly hair custard. Well I found it. This is my number 1 go-to for my kinky-curly hairstyle. It does not weigh my hair down, smells fantastic, and my curls are spectacular. Can be used on wet or dry hair. Love it.

                  This is not a bad product, however, it didn't work well on my hair. I have 3c hair, therefore, I have a natural curl pattern that doesn't require gel like substances to form or hold. That's why this didn't work for me. Gave it to my SIL with 4b hair & she loves it.

                  Comments about Ouidad Curl Immersion Hi-Defining Custard:

                  This product is interesting. It's such a thin formula that I thought I would have to use a lot for it to work. The first time I used it, I used too much and it left a very weird build up in my hair. I used less the next time & then it was great. It adds volume & a little texture to my hair, but is pretty light weight. Just be careful to not use too much. Start with a small amount and add more if you need it. I think this big container will last me a long time. I have medium length hair with a perm. If I don't have a perm, my hair is stick straight and has no body.

                    • Q:

                      I have really curly hair but extremely dry and brittle. I have a lot of frizz as well. I already use the climate control gel and leave in conditioner from the Quidad line but I'm still struggling with a lot of frizz and dryness. Will this product help with my problem hair?

                        A:

                        This product is great for adding shine and definition to kinky curls. For hair that is dry and frizzy we recommend using our Ultra-Nourishing Cleansing Oil. It is weightless and heals dryness. Incorporating a mask or treatment such as the Curl Immersion Triple Treat Deep Conditioner once or twice a week can also improve frizzy damaged hair!

                    • Q:

                      I don't have kinky curls, but do have pretty (thick) curly hair. I usually use climate control, but don't like that it has parabens in it. If climate control works for me, would this be just as effective? Is there any reason I should not use this product?
