      I haven't used it long enough to say I love it, and I need a haircut, but so far I do love how it accents what curl I have and leaves my hair very soft. A bit spendy, though.

              I used the product per the directions on the back of the bottle. My hair came out great since the first use. It adds volume and defines my curls without making them crunchy. I can't even tell that there's product in my hair!

                  I honestly couldn't care less about how this product works on my hair because the smell is so strong and chemical smelling it almost made me throw up when I put it on my hair originally. I can be sensitive to certain strong smells but it has to be pretty strong to have an effect and this is just awful. I put it in the wrapped my hair before I went to bed so I wouldn't have to worry about doing it in the morning and i woke up with a horrible headache. Will be returning it if I can, I can't believe a few reviewers actually said this stuff has a good smell, it's just awful I've never in my life used a hair product that smelled so horrible I couldn't stand it.

                                  A:

                                  This is Ouidad's Rake & Shake Technique:

                                  When hair is still damp, divide into 4-6 sections.
                                  Spread 2-3 pumps of foam through each section, with your fingers separated like a rake.
                                  Rake section from scalp to ends, then holding the ends, shake hair back and forth to create curls.
                                  Repeat process for each section.
                                  Let hair dry naturally or blow-dry with a diffuser.
