    Comments about Ouidad Play Curl Volumizing Styling Spray:

    I have very fine hair with a soft wave, but a lot of it. Most curl enhancing sprays are too heavy or drying for my hair time, which totally cancels out the fact that I am trying to care for my hair by letting it go natural and not heat style.

    If you have hair like mine I would not bank on using this product every day and here's why:

    Like some of the other reviewers with a hair type similar to mine I found this product was ineffective and left my hair greasy when used in combination with other hair products, like root spray or volumizing shampoos. That makes sense, all these products leave behind a pretty heavy residue.

    I used this product with great results on the day each week I used a detoxifying shampoo to clear out all the build up. This product gives my hair a nice (albeit, not the tightest) wave without dry ends or crunch.

    I also recommend for fine hair girls to skip the suggest "scrunch" step listed on the bottle. I find over-handling fine hair as it dries leads it to fall flat. Personally, I spray through my hair pretty liberally when still damp (but not wet), comb through and then just tousle the roots to give them lift and let the curl form naturally as it dries.

    Hope that helps any fine-haired girls looking for wash-and-go product in their search/use of this product!

      Comments about Ouidad Play Curl Volumizing Styling Spray:

      The fact I can wake up, spray a few squirts in my hair, get my hands wet then scrunch it up and jet out the door saves so much time!!! It doesn't leave ur hair crunchy and stiff either, that's my all time fav part!!!

        Comments about Ouidad Play Curl Volumizing Styling Spray:

        I agree with a previous reviewer in that the new Ouidad botanical boost has made my hair greasy and weighed down my curls for second day styles. I have been using ouidad amplifying foam/mousse at night and refresh in the morning but I think all the flowery ingredients are giving me eye allergies. So I turned to my trial size ouidad amplifying spray and seems to work like botanical boost used to! So far it's good no allergies. If works out well I'll probably order the full size one.

          If you miss the original formula of Ouidad Botanical Boost, this is the closest thing to it! I've tried so many times to use the new Boost, but it makes hair greasy and weighed down. Playcurl spray is a medium hold styling spray for wet hair, but can be used as a second day spray on dry hair with beautiful results.

                  I have very thin, fine curly hair. It is difficult for me to find products that don't weigh down my hair. Although this product claims to be volumizing, it made my hair go flat, and it left a greasy film.

                  I use this spray in the summer. Love the look. Spray and scrunch and I am on my way.

                    All of a sudden, my hair has this little wave/curl to it. I happened to come across this product and it did exactly what the label said it would. It's much lighter than a mousse so it doesn't hold a style a firm as a mousse would when blow drying. However, if you want to spray and go, your waves/curls will dry soft, bouncy, and full!

                    I love this line of products, however this product leaves a visible residue on your hair. I tried it a few times and each time had a white filmy residue on my brunette hair. I am returning it.
