Comments about Ouidad Moisture Lock Define & Shine Curl Styling Gel-Cream:

I mix it with a dollop of Ouidad's Climate Control. It does not look hard, like some curl creams. Hair feels clean, looks shiny and moves well.

      Comments about Ouidad Moisture Lock Define & Shine Curl Styling Gel-Cream:

      If you're like me, you read all the reviews FIRST before you buy anything. And like...I mean anything. So naturally, I read all the reviews before buying this because i was in the market for some good styling cream. I have dry curly/wavy hair and cream is better than gel (Gel dries hair out, of course) for me. I still needed a little hold for my hair, so I figured if it was cream AND gel, it would work wonders!

      The first day was eh, okay. I felt like it literally disappeared though at the end of the day. I was left with sticky and somehow ironically frizzy locks.

      And the second day... dear God I looked like a bum with wannabe dreadlocks.

      I tried to use it again, sparingly one day, and more the next day, just to give it a chance and figure out if I was doing something wrong. I tried so many methods to get this to work, and sadly... it didn't.

      Maybe it was just my hair. Maybe it's just me. But this will just be another failed hair product stuffed in my cabinet begging to be thrown out or donated.

          Love this stuff. I use it on my non shampoo days and after spraying it down and it revives my curls, leaves them soft, and reduces frizz. Best stuff I have found in 40 years for curls. Can even use on high humidity days to calm things down.

          Comments about Ouidad Moisture Lock Define & Shine Curl Styling Gel-Cream:

          I have very curly, frizzy hair, but this stuff is amazing. It defines curls and makes hair look glossy and smooth. I don't worry about frizz anymore even in the very hot humid weather that I deal with in my area. I use a pea size squirt and run it through my medium length hair, then style. A little goes a long way! I love this product!

              Comments about Ouidad Moisture Lock Define & Shine Curl Styling Gel-Cream:

              I was hoping this would work as well as another curl cream I have tried but have difficulty finding, it doesn't. It did very little to define my fine, frizz-prone curls, left it feeling weighed down and perhaps cut back on frizz a little. For the price, I expected much more and am left with yet another useless curl product in my already full cabinet. I would not recommend.

                  Section hair and apply by section. Shake and scrunch to encourage curl. I usually leave for work with damp hair. To reduce crunch once dry, I do one firm twirl and twist.

                  I love Ouidad products, but I was disappointed in this one. I have wavy hair and thought this would give me soft curls. This product did not have enough hold and left my hair greasy on day two.
