Most Helpful Positive Review Not Just for Curly-Girlies!
I have straight hair but love this stuff. I am growing my hair out and now that it's longer it loves to get really tangled (especially at the nape of my neck). Even after conditioning it isn't super easy to comb through wet. I picked this up because after searching A LOT of "light detanglers" this is the only one that actually is light. No silicones (not that I am against them in certain applications, they are just too heavy in a leave on for me), no heavy conditioners (Behentrimonium Chloride) and no oils/oil substitutes. Meaning, this won't weigh you down! It's chock full of great things for hair, PANTHENOL! Wheat Protein! I like to think of it as vitamins for my hair with the added bonus that since it detangles so well it reduces combing forces and breaks less hairs. Win win.
PS. I read in another review the person was sad there was Lye (sodium hydroxide) in the product. It should be noted that every ingredient listed after "Fragrance" is >1%, and a sodium hydroxide solution is used as a pH adjuster, just like citric acid is, to bring this to a hair friendly pH. This shouldn't deter anyone from trying this product. (yeah yeah I'm a cosmetic science dork... haha)
Most Helpful Critical Review eh
I had hopes for this product, but was disappointed. To be as short and sweet as possible, it basically did...well...nothing. It altered the texture of my hair after it was applied, but thats about it. It went from clean, to dirty dirty dirty feeling.

Love this product line
Way better curl boosters out there
Lorelei from Greenville, NC
I have low-porosity, extremely dry, thick 2C hair. I have tried many curl revitalizers, and I won't be buying this one again. My favorite so far is by Twisted Sista. This one probably makes my hair more dry. I tested this after my hair dried just out of the shower (I did nothing but cleanse scalp and condition hair). The next day, I spritzed this on to add the curls back in. That really put the nail in the coffin when this product made my hair even more frizzy! Maybe it's good for people with oily, fine hair.

I've used this a few times so far and have had pretty good results. For some reason some sections of my hair don't curl well. I sprayed this on my straighter pieces and some almost instantly curled, others did not. It does do a good job of hydrating my hair, especially if my shampoo has dried it out. Very lightweight and doesn't make your hair sticky or stiff. I don't enjoy the smell all the much though. Overall, I would recommend this even if it is a little expensive.
Hit or miss
J from United States
Seems to depend on the texture of my hair when I spray it on; sometimes it causes a sticky frizzy mess, other times it pops my curl into place. Unsure if I can recommend.
CurlyD from Indiana
I like it. It adds some bounce to my curls.
Vanie from Chicago, IL
I have very thin curly hair. It's a struggle because any product with oil weighs my hair down. To date this has been the best curl refresher/booster I've tried! My curls not hydrated, defined, and soft to the touch. This is definitely going in my favorite bin!
BW from Knoxville TN
Love the soft curl look. It doesn't feel crunchy like moose does. Love it!
Great for 2nd or 3rd day curls
lulu from Parker, CO
I spritzed this on my hair to help revive my curls after the first day (or third lol)
I use this with my other Ouidad products (not sure if that makes a difference) and I don't get the "crunch" that other refreshener products have given me! It gets a little crunchy but much much softer than other products!
Not my favorite
V from Ny
This product left my hair feeling very dry and full of knots. It did help define my curls a bit, but I cannot forgive the horrible texture of my hair. It also does not have a great scent. I'll be returning this.
LOVE the spray, hate the baby powder smell
Wowohwow from Chicago
This spray is great!! It refreshes and moisturizes as it says, but the smell .. omg. It's got a baby powder smell that is just awful. Thankfully the smell doesn't linger!
Perfect to use daily between shampoos!
sassysheila from Kansas City
Great to give my hair control without crunch.
This stuff works!
Janell from Wa
I was skeptical but I tried this on my second day hair and it worked GREAT. It didn't weigh my hair down or make it sticky or weird. It just made my curls and waves bounce back up. This is a new staple in my routine.
Great product for curly hair!
Curly girl from Mill Creek, WA
This spray is great to touch up naturally curly hair. It revives my curls, and can be used throughout the day when necessary. It doesn't make my hair sticky or crunchy, but adds shape and sheen to my already styled curly hair. I've used this product for several years with really good results. The fragrance is light and doesn't conflict with my perfume.
TinyKittenClaws from Boise ID
This works wonders! As long as I didn't sleep weird and completely mess up my hair, using this in the morning makes it look freshly showered and washed. It gets rid of the flat spot I get in my hair from sleeping on my back.
I also use this if I had straightened my hair earlier in the day, but I was exposed to too much moisture and humidity. In humid environments, any efforts to straighten my hair are instantly erased, and this spray calms my hair down and makes it look "presentable"
Katelyn from Alexandria, VA
I really like this product, but I don't *quite* love it. It's a great way to extend a curly/wavy day of hair - kind of like a dry shampoo extends a blow out. The only problem I have with it is it leaves my hair a little greasy with some residue, but it definitely perks up my curls as promised and smells nice so I reordered it when I ran out.
Love love love Ouidad products!
Netta from New Orleans
I use a combination of the spray with the heat and humidity gel, works great on my fine curly hair.
I would buy again.
Keri from Roselle, Illinois
I spray this onto my dry curly hair on the mornings that I do not shampoo. I scrunch a bit and let it air dry. It is decent at redefining my curls.
Yes, it does what it says it will do.
Victoria from Naples, FL
Use after curls begin to droop .
Yes and Do
Tina from FL
I have very fine and thinning natural curly hair.....its sad to be losing my hair but with the blessing of having curls.....I am good at camouflage!!! Some mornings.............it looks like I did not sleep well.....tossing and flopping like a fish.........my hair is the "tell all"!! This seems to tame it for me and reshapes my curls and makes them fresher looking again.
The best thing for curly hair between shampoos!

I use this product to create hair style then set it with Paul Mitchell mouse
Best product for curly hair
Meggers from Houston, TX
Cannot live without this product. Great for reviving second/third day curls or if your curls need a pick me up. Immediately reduces frizz and defines while moisturizing with aloe. I use this after I get off a plane, after working out, etc. Does not leave residue. Highly, highly recommended.
Really liked it!
Flo from Springfield NJ
this will keep being one of my basics daily ones.. Nice refreshment for every day dry hair and light feeling.
Best on wet hair
Cindy from Kennesaw, GA
I bought the travel size to try first and I have been happy with it! I wouldn't use it as a next day frizz tamer though, which is the reason for the loss of a star since that is what is advertised on the product. I found that it works best on wet hair out of the shower. My hair is very damaged and dry and this primes my hair for the other products and wakes up my sad damaged curls. I will buy again for this reason.
curlywhirley from Pittsburgh, PA
this product left a ton of residue in my hair and my hear more of less congealed into one big mass. I generally have very soft hair and even after two days of not washing my hair i am able to run my hand through my hair without facing more than a few tangles. This product congealed everything. It left such a residue and made my hair so rough than i was not even able to put my hand in my hair. Will not use again. Will not recommend.
Body and Definition for Thin Hair with Natural Curl
chinjillavanilla from Detroit Metro
If I spray my longer thin hair with this when damp, my natural curls get definition and less frizz. It's my go to for wash and go days. It reminds me a little of a "saltwater" spritz, but it is very lightweight.
My bottle did develop a problem... the spray kept getting clogged! It was so annoying. I though it was like hairspray and ran the pump with hot water, but the problem kept returning frequently. I finally realized it was IN the product. I ran it through a coffee filter and captured tons of hard white tiny bits that had been clogging the pump. Come on, Oidad!?! What's up with that!? Cost you a star lol. Should not happen, but problem solved.
