    The product does stay soft but doesn't hold as well as they claim. Relaxes curl and flattens as day goes on.

          I have tried many professional products and have not liked them because they did not hold my hair and keep it from becoming too full. This product holds firm but doesn't look wet or feel heavy. So glad to have found a product that is healthy for my hair and works great!

              Absolutely must apply when hair is very wet, then use a defuser or air dry. Been using 4 years. Won't buy anything else!
              Also helps to have the Ouidad curl cut. Look for Ouidad stylists near you.
