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.

      I use this product to define my curls on wash day. I find that I need to use a leave in conditioner and oil so that my hair stays hydrated. I have repurchased this product and will continue to do so in the future.

          Comments about Ouidad Curl Immersion Hi-Defining Custard:

          Ok, this worked wonderfully for me!! Gave my curls shine , they didn't feel weighed down, they were & still are soft on day 3, great definition , I'm very pleased!! So,I'm going to say this with the best intentions. Some of the reviews where I see ppl complaining about flakes & residue etc ; I just want to say PLEASE make sure you're not over saturating your hair with product!!! A lot of us naturals have a problem being waaaaaay too heavy handed. How do I know? Well because I had to break the habit myself!!! Listen, good products DON'T need to be plopped onto your already beautiful strands...sometimes less IS more. Try easing up on how much you use & see if the flakes & residue disappear, this product worked beautifully for me. Yes we all have different hair & will have different experience with it ,but I'd say give this a shot WITHOUT over doing it on YOUR part. Take a look at what YOU'RE doing on your behalf 1st & try again. Hopefully it works out & if not so be it, but give it a fair shot...Its sticking around as a staple (the entire Curl Immersion line that is!)

              Comments about Ouidad Curl Immersion Hi-Defining Custard:

              This seemed like a dream until I realized it left a tremendous amount of white flakes. Maybe I'm using too much. My hair is 4a.

              Comments about Ouidad Curl Immersion Hi-Defining Custard:

              This product works best on soaking wet hair. I have 3c/4a natural hair. My regiment: Wash hair, deep condition with the kinky curl immersion, apply the ouidad setting/priming suffle (small amount needed), apply this oil gel. I rake the oil gel custard through my hair and apply water to aid with clumping. I allow my hair to air dry. This is the first product to define every curl. I can go 5 days without restyling. The steam from the shower is enough to activate the curl back to how it was the original day. I also use a scarf at night to minimize frizz that happens during my sleep.

              • 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?

                  Climate Control is actually paraben-free...
