    I always use it on wet hair, the smell used to bother me, now I'm used to it and I use a defuser to blow dry my hair.

        I have been looking for something that would work for my thick, coarse, curly hair. My hair ended up really crunchy and looking dirty. Product was returned.

          Comments about Ouidad Tress Effects Styling Gel:

          I am always surprised when I see this as the lowest rated gel on ULTA and Sephora. I think I have a very unique curly hair type, sometimes best for me is not always the most popular. to compare, i like climate control but it doesnt work on frizz as much and is a bit crunchier and less defining. the curl moisture gel just didnt do anything. out of the 3 I love this one- it last the longest of product, is cheapest, and easily works the best. PLEASE DONT ever discontinue, ouidad! still my number 1 go to product of all brands and everything Ive tried!

          Comments about Ouidad Tress Effects Styling Gel:

          When I first started using this gel I absolutely loved it. Then after week I noticed my hair was becoming more brittle and dry. I've never had this problem, so I changed up the amount I was using, figuring I was just using too much gel. Nothing. It makes my hair very dried out, when normally I have greasy hair after a day.
          I love the clove scent and it has some hold for a few hours. In those few hours the curls look great...then my curls go flat and clump together :(
          I really had high hopes for this gel but I had to return it. I just need more hold in a gel. But for the super curly girls, I think this would be fine, just not very moisturizing.

            I have used Ouidad products for years. Have only ever been able to purchase online. It is great to have them now available in a store. I only wish Ulta would carry the larger sizes.

            Comments about Ouidad Tress Effects Styling Gel:

            I was never really into these thick hair gels until my hair stylist recommended Ouidad products to control my curls/waves. I usually use Garnier spray gel and have for 5 years (highly recommend it). This gel is amazing in the fact that it defines curls and keeps them in the same place all day without frizzing or being crunchy. I'm also a fan of the clove scent, but it fades very quickly even if you're not a fan.

            My biggest problem with this gel is that it's super sticky and dries so quickly so you have to style quickly. I always have to scrunch my hair right out of the shower after my leave in condition. Even on damp hair it'll make your hair stick to your hands and frizz it all up, even knotting my hair. Ugh. So make sure you use it when hair is soaking wet!
            Besides that, it's amazing and I will keep using this gel :)

                  I was so excited to try this after seeing all the awards...huge disappointment. Hair expanded, lost definition, and frizz remained. Will not buy again. Tress FX is much better in controlling, but wanted something that didnt leave hair crunchy....my quest continues.
