      Comments about Ouidad Curl Immersion Hi-Defining Custard:

      Used the Kinky curl line before and quickly returned, it dried my hair out so bad! I then moved to the tight curls, yet was using the whip cream which I love and figured to try again using this and whip since I thought I may just needed a thicker leave in. That was not the case, still dried by hair out and my 2nd day hair looked like 4/5 day hair. Still trying to have a hold product to go with whip that will last longer than a day, but this is def not it.

      Comments about Ouidad Curl Immersion Hi-Defining Custard:

      I use this product twice, week one for a twist out. That turned out dry, hard , no definition, no softness, or shine. And it left a grayish tint to my hair. Week 2 I use it for wash and go and got the same disappointing results. A waste of money. Luckily, my niece came over and tried it and received amazing results. The definition, the shine, the bounce, the softness, and hole was all there. This product just did not work for me.

            My hair is fine, very dry, and curly. I use this product and now hooked. I wash my hair 1-2 times per week. I only use this post washing and leave in. It adds moisture and holds my curls. This will hold some curl until I wash again.

              Comments about Ouidad Curl Immersion Hi-Defining Custard:

              This product replaced my ORS Curl Boosting Jelly, and I finally have the weightless bouncy curls I knew were there after a wash n go. For reference, I have 3c/4a hair. I have had so much success with this on twist outs and wash and go's that I've bought this twice. It smells amazing, my hair has movement and life that no other gel product has delivered. Along with enough hold to make a style last a few days without starting over. My routine is a creamy cleanser , spray leave in in conditioner, Cantu Curl Activator Moisturizing Cream , and this amazing gel (thankfully because of the price, a little goes a long way). For me, perfect wash and go's every single time.

                I enjoyed my curls on vacation... the carribeans can be brutal on a girls hair but this lightweight curl taming product was perfect. I had to use larger portions because I have a lot of hair. My favorite part is that is does not dry out the curls at all and it smells terrific!

                  The smell of this product is nice and initially I thought the consistency was adequate for my hair.
                  Unfortunately, this product is not heavy enough for my 3c, 4a, low porosity hair.
                  It might work a little better for those who do not need as much hold.

                    I have really curly hair but extremely dry and brittle. I have a lot of frizz as well. I already use the climate control gel and leave in conditioner from the Quidad line but I'm still struggling with a lot of frizz and dryness. Will this product help with my problem hair?

                      A:

                      This product is great for adding shine and definition to kinky curls. For hair that is dry and frizzy we recommend using our Ultra-Nourishing Cleansing Oil. It is weightless and heals dryness. Incorporating a mask or treatment such as the Curl Immersion Triple Treat Deep Conditioner once or twice a week can also improve frizzy damaged hair!

                  • Q:

                    I don't have kinky curls, but do have pretty (thick) curly hair. I usually use climate control, but don't like that it has parabens in it. If climate control works for me, would this be just as effective? Is there any reason I should not use this product?
