Comments about Ouidad VitalCurl Define & Shine Styling Gel-Cream:

I have been fighting my curls/waves for years. Spending time blow drying and flat-ironing, product after product; some worked for awhile but I always ended up with what felt like cotton candy on my head. This product and other Quidad products as well as a Quidad cut have changed the way I feel about my hair. I love it now,so easy to care for and soft .Great product even makes my grays behave.

    Comments about Ouidad VitalCurl Define & Shine Styling Gel-Cream:

    I have long hair (halfway down my back) with medium curl and had a hard time finding a product that controlled frizz and kept an all day hold. This product is amazing! I wash my hair every other day and for second day wear I add a little water with a quarter size dab of gel and it looks fresh and revitalized!

      Not for the morning rush before work. Product works best when it sits on the hair for awhile after applied, then diffused. It produces very nice, soft, non-sticky or crunchy curls that way. Hair frizzes out when applied and blow dried immediately (10 min) after.

        Comments about Ouidad VitalCurl Define & Shine Styling Gel-Cream:

        I have very soft curly hair that curls only when it's warm and humid out. It frizzes easily. I bought this after hearing rave reviews about the brand from a friend and a co-worker who both have very thick curly hair. I hate it. It didn't work on my hair. It did not control frizz at all and actually weighed my ringlets down. On the bottle, it says good for creating beachy hair, so yeah, my hair did look like I was out on a boat all day. Not only that, but the product itself feels very gritty in your hair. I ended up using a lot of it to try to control the frizz, but that just made the hair even more gritty. I typically apply product to my hair while wet and then air dry. The directions on the bottle say to use a diffuser, so maybe that's where I went wrong. Still doesn't change the way it felt in my hair. Disappointed in this product. I have not tried other products from Ouidad, this is only for the Vitalcurl styling gel cream.

          I am always on the lookout for a product that holds curl and does not make it stiff and brittle. This works nicely!
