    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!)

            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.

              Comments about Ouidad Curl Immersion Hi-Defining Custard:

              I was introduced to this product by a hair stylist and when she used it, it smelled wonderful, my hair was uber moisturized, and I loved it. The next day I had residue, white flakes (or what looked like white flakes), but small balls of the product build up. Ugh! I called the stylist and she told me that I may need to saturate my hair with water so that the product would "reactivate" itself and the product build up would go away. It did!

              I've used this product for 3 months and repurchased another jar, but I have tweaked how I apply it and style my hair. I am learning to love it! I totally saturate my hair with water and rake the custard through strands of sectioned hair and try to remove the access product after my curls have formed. It works like magic.

              The custard provides a great hold, your curls will totally pop and look moisturized. The smell of the product is just as great too!

              I definitely would recommend this product.

              • 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?
