          I love this product! I've been looking for something simple to help control my crazy frizzy curls for years. This is it! I simply run this through my wet hair and let it air dry. My curls look better than ever and there's no frizz!

            Comments about Ouidad Tress Effects Styling Gel:

            I use this gel by applying all over my hair. I tilt my head forward, and continue to rub through the hair; I then shake my hands on my scalp and then flip my hair up. Lastly, I scrunch sections throughout my entire head. And then allow to air dry for 2hours.
            This causes my hair to be shiny and have perfect ringlet curls.

              I thought I loved Ouidad Heat and Humidity Gel, but this is even better! My curls are frizz-free, and stay Curly all day. I get up and go on Day #2 with very little fuss.

                  • I have comination hair. Not always successful

                  Comments about Ouidad Tress Effects Styling Gel:

                  In this product I am not sure which one to use for comination hair. Curly/top straighter. So I guess. Also clerks don't really have the training.
