          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!

              Comments about Ouidad PlayCurl Volumizing Foam:

              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.

                          Comments about Ouidad PlayCurl Volumizing Foam:

                          This makes my curls look great even in the winter when they usually loose their fullness and bounce. I am mixed and have medium loose curls. This works best after the ouidad shampoo and conditioner that comes in the loose curls trial. It's not heavy, greasy, oily, or any of the bad things about curly hair products at all. You have to find the right amount of product for your hair. If your hair is super frizzy you probably need to use the climate control gel with this. My hair is thin so I don't mind a little frizz. I will see how this works for me in summer with and without the gel.

                          As I've been transitioning from relaxed hair to my natural curly hair I been on the hunt for a product that would define my locks and provide hold without the stiffness...this is it!!! The product is lightweight providing tons of volume and a tamed mane. It's quickly become my holy grail styler!!!

                            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.

                                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.
