    My hair loves this stuff

    By Wingless

    from Chicago IL

      Comments about Ouidad Curl Quencher Hydrafusion Intense Curl Cream:

      I'm African American with natural coily and long hair. (If you're into hair typing: 4A with 2 tiny sections of 3C.) It's a fun mix of low, medium, and high porosity, coarse in the rear crown, very frizzy around my face and in those 2 larger-coiled patches, and silky at just the back bottom third of my head. It's hard to find products that work on my entire head, so I've been using specific Shea Moisture, OGX, and Camille Rose products on different sections.

      Yesterday I tried this on a 3 day old wash & go. I wet and lightly detangled my hair in the shower. Instead of my usual leave-in conditioners and moisturizers, I added this curl cream when I left the shower (while my hair was still dripping wet). I ran it through my high and medium porosity areas, and scrunched it in everywhere else. I went heavy-handed with it on my driest frizziest areas. I didn't put anything else on my hair, and I let it air dry.

      This stuff gave me fantastic curl definition. It kept my coils nice and tight. Didn't weigh my hair down at all and didn't flake off when it dried. Since this cream contains dimethicone, I worried it'd make my face break out—but it hasn't yet. I also worried my hair would be crispy once it dried, but it wasn't: I touched various parts of my hair and it felt really good, like "leave-in lubricated" good. It still feels like that today. I didn't have to add a moisturizer to my hair this morning, or wet it down and reapply a leave-in conditioner. This is a first for my hair! My coils even plumped back up on their own during my morning shower, after I'd slept on them in a silk scarf. I usually have to mist them and apply moisturizer to un-smush them. Today all I had to do was finger fluff them a bit. This curl cream is the first Ouidad product I've ever used, and I'll definitely add it to my regular haircare routine.

                  It definetly moisturizes the hair, the product just feels a little heavy, I feel like I need to wash my hair the next day to clean it out. Also, I've used many, many products over the years and couldn't figure out how to get the product out of the container, I would recommend to let customers know in the label to tilt the container down.
