    Comments about Ouidad PlayCurl Volumizing Foam:

    I used as recommended, I love my Very Curly Hair, and yes, I want it big!!! But not at the cost of the health of my hair. I am not going to stop trying this line, but ladies, if you have curly hair and you want it soft and conditioned and big...don't use this, it dried my hair so much...see the alcohol contents... I had to over night condition for days. Who cares about the curl when it just looks damaged. But, I am going to take other reviews advice on other styling product with this line...I still want my curls still want it soft and as big as it can get!!! Stay tuned for other reviews as I try other product in search for the magic wand (product) if you know ladies, let me know.

      Comments about Ouidad PlayCurl Volumizing Foam:

      Didn't know how this product would do. Having naturally curly hair that is very fine, I have tried just about every product out there. Cheap and expensive. None have worked like this! It is a very light foam which works great for my hair. A gel or cream is just to heavy for my hair. I love this stuff and would recommend it to any one with this hair type. Best stuff I have ever used. It is a bit pricy but worth it in my book!

          Very impressed, I have been looking for a low maintenance product for some time. This works great, it took a few days to figure out how much to use and how to apply it.

            This product works really well for me. It does not make my head itch or give dandruff like most products do. It stops frizz and helps to make my curls soft and full of body. I love the way my hair looks and feels since I started using this product. I just wish it had a nicer smell.

                    Great to add body to fine curly hair. Also helps define the curl and minimize frizz.

                        It is great for thin hair!
                        It definitely adds volume and hold.
                        However, it leaves the hair dry

                            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.
