    I could not get past the smell; did not want to put it on my hair, and I didn't. I will be returning it to the store where I purchased it. I have used other Quidad products, and have liked them very much.

      Comments about Ouidad PlayCurl Volumizing Foam:

      Works great for daily use. I needed something that would help control my curls without being crunchy or sticky. I have fine hair so lightweight products are my top preference. This was easy and lightweight. Has good curl control without feeling like I had product in my hair.

          This product is a great alternative to mousse. It does not make your hair crunchy or stiff but provides the form and control you're looking for to have beautiful bouncy curls.

            Unfortunately when I went to my local Ulta they did not have the Ouidad product I wanted. This is not an unusual occurrence as they do not seem to carry a lot of the line. I tried this on a whim (rarely is there anyone to offer product assistance) and it is okay

                I have used the gel on my straight hair and it added body and hold. Mistakenly thought thus volumizer would do the same. Wrong

                            My daughter has fine wavy hair. We did not prefer the smell of the product. It did not hold the wave and her hair was still frizzy.

                                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.
