    Comments about Ouidad Tress Effects Styling Gel:

    I have tried the more expensive Ouidad Gels and others, but they don't hold my curls as well. I like the Clove scent with this product and love the daily compliments on my curly hair! It doesn't dry my hair either like some others.

    Comments about Ouidad Tress Effects Styling Gel:

    This gel holds a little too well. It made my hair super crunchy and stiff. I don't like this as much as I like the climate control gel. That has a softer hold. Also tres effects gel smells a little strange to me. Climate control gel smells better. I would only recommend this gel to someone who wants crunchy hair.

    Comments about Ouidad Tress Effects Styling Gel:

    I really like the Quidad moisturizing gel much better. I bought this one thinking it was similar and would save myself some money, but it did not make my hair feel or look good at all. So I returned it and bought the moisturizing gel as usual.

    Comments about Ouidad Tress Effects Styling Gel:

    The best product for naturally curly big-polar hair! I have used every curl everything, this is the only gel that lasts all day, the smell is kinda strong at first and putting it on is kind of sticky but it is well worth the cons!

          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.
