    Easy to use. Hair stays soft. Works well in dry region (winter air, upper michigan) Not sure it's enough to control in high humidity (summer, n.carolina). Good scent.

          Comments about Ouidad Tress Effects Styling Gel:

          This product is amazing. I used devacurl for a while and recently switched over. This gel provides a strong hold with a cast that breaks to leave your curls shiny and soft. I have never had a gel have such a great hold while also leaving my hair so soft. My hair is very thick so I apply gel to sections of hair starting at the bottom and moving up. I allow my hair to air dry while I do my makeup then finish up with warm then cold diffusing. I use the mongongo oil to break the gel cast. I am beyond impressed with this gel. It does have the curl memory and I notice that my curl pattern is more consistent with this gel.

              Never heavy. Locks in soft shape of curls or waves.

                Just the right amount of hold, not heavy, soft and movable hair. It is not sticky and does not dry or damage my hair. Keeps my hair looking healthy.

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