Most Helpful Positive Review Yes!!!!!!!!!
Product junkie here, I've tried everything for "curly" hair this actually does exactly what I want, I was able to do a wash n go with this product alone. Doesn't add a lot of shine though, but the curl definition was poppin! I'm 😍
Most Helpful Critical Review Did not mix well with other stylers
I really tried to like this product but it did not play well with other stylers!!! It's leaves white residue on your hair. Do not buy unless you plan on using a styler from this line as well. Too expensive not to mix well with other stylers in my opinion.

I've tried this product multitudinous times and have not seen any positive results. Every time I use it, it makes my hair sticky and chunked together. It does not moisturize my hair. It doesn't restore it. It's an overpriced product that just sits on your hair and makes it look worst than before. Please save your money and buy a product that will actually own up to the price and word.
Left my hair greasy and dry!
Rae from NJ
I purchased this after seeing great reviews online and my hair dresser recommended it. I really had high hopes but this did not work out. I have 3c/4a hair, with high porosity. This left my hair feeling brittle with a greasy gummy feel. I tried it a second time and used less, and still it did not moisturize my hair.
For the price and all the hype, I was expecting more. This was completely not with it. I will not repurchase.
Changed My Life
Heather from West Palm Beach, FL
Love this product! This brand and product has changed my life. Can't recommend enough.

Belle from Calif
There is nothing great about it!
Love, love, love!
Dee from MD
I have type 4 coily curls & my hair LOVES this stuff! Its surprisingly rich & thick, and goes a VERY long way. While I have type 4 curls, it's rather fine & medium density, so I'm sure that those with looser curl patterns will have to be extra careful not to use too much. While I've tried to avoid most silicones, I think that's what helps this product beat the frizz - but it's not in the top 5 ingredients & I shampoo regularly enough to not be too worried. After my first use, I've planned to buy another can the next prestige sale, just so I never run out. Oh, I did top it with a little gel for extended hold, but suspect I didn't need it. Smooths on like butter & my curls "pop" immediately!
Works for me!
Marlene from NYC
My hair type is tight coarse curls and I love this product because of the smell and the softness it leaves after I rinse it out. I primarily use it as a treatment (10/15 min in shower) and my curls soak it all up in need of shine& hydration.I don't use it to detangle after shampoo. Besides that MAGIC IN A BOTTLE
KC2019 from Southwest, US
Use it every day after washing and/or conditioning my hair. Keeps my curls moisturized and soft. I just run it through my hair by doing a rake & shake and I'm out the door.
Obsessed and will always be my go to conditioner
Michelle from Rancho Cucamonga
I love to combine this product with the ouidad oil shampoo and the living proof night cap protector
Jenn R from Limerick, PA
Great product. Love how thick the product is & it really helps with frizz & shaping of curls.
Flowers60 from Lake Elsinore
I used this as a primer before styling and my hair felt disgusting. I still had some frizz too. This product did not work for me.
Not For Me
CTimmons from Kalispell, MT
I love Ouidad products. This however did not work for me. I use as directed as a leave in conditioner. I tried it for a couple of days. It just made my hair feel gross and matted down my curls. Wish they offered a money back guarantee.
Great product! Really poor delivery.
FunJenSun from Napa CA
This is a wonderful conditioner. However, the mousse can makes it hard to 1) get the product out because it takes forever and 2) know how much you have left. You can't really tell from the weight of the can when it's empty, until nothing comes out. I won't repurchase because of this.
The best solution for natural curls
Deanna from Long Island, NY
Brush your hair with a wide tooth comb in the shower. Towel-dry hair. Put a quarter sized amount into your palms and lather through your hair, following your natural curl.
Good once you get the hang of it
Elizabeth from Charleston
1. Comb/rinse conditioner
2. This stuff. Just a dab. Less than you think you need.
This also pairs great with the climate gel. Only thing I don't like is that it smells like smoky bandaids to me but that's thankfully temporary.
very sticky and tacky
Jody from California
I will give this product a 2 1/2 starts (but can't shade in a half a star) pros: no fizzy, curl were in tack, lightweight
cons: I did not like how it made my hair feel after using this product. My hair felt super sticky, tacky, and nasty. I had to return this product because of these reason. If they can find away to get rid of that sticky & tacky then this will be a winning product.
Perfect for my frizzy wavy/curly hair
Heather from Florida
I apply this first (dime size amount) then the advanced climate control get. They work perfect together!!!!
IDK quite know yet....
Dee from Hampton Va
I haven't quite come to a decision on if I like this. The first time I used just the tiniest bit on 1 part of my bangs that I left out of a pony and it helped the curl, but left it feeling wet. I liked the curls so it was nice. The next time I used more on all my hair but didn't really prep my hair well enough and it left it greasy and looking dirty but I still did define my curls a lil more. I think I need more layers and to start from a fresh fully wet head to really tell how it's gonna work for me. Didn't work well for a second day head of hair for me. Will keep working at it to see if I can get it to work for me.
Little goes a long way!
Kim from Wyncote, Pennsylvania
You only need to use a small amount, it will last a long time so the price is worth it. I have long wavy hair and my daughter has thick mid length very curly hair, this doesn't leave either of our hair heavy or with a greasy residue. I like it much better than Diva Curl.
D. from Columbus, OH
I'm so glad I found this! I feel like I'm a little late to the game in discovering this product, but I'm so happy I finally have it in my arsenal! I've been discouraged with my curls lately and my usual leave-in/curl products have left my hair feeling frizzy, dry, and undefined. I picked this up after hearing and reading a number of positive reviews and was hopeful that I would find the same success! What a wow! After washing and deep conditioning, I sectioned my hair and placed this product in and immediately felt a difference. Extremely moisturizing and defining, I'm positive my wash and go will last longer than 3-4 days. I'm so thankful that this is an all-in-one product that moisturizes and defines my curls. I'm considering buying a number of additional bottles just to make sure I never run out! WONDERFUL PRODUCT!
great for my 2C/3A curls
Karlita from Idaho
I received this from a friend who didnt like it on her 4B/4C curls. Initially I thought this product would be too heavy on my hair since you use it along with your normal styler, but that wasnt the case! My curls were so volumized, bouncy and frizz-free. I'm buying a bottle for myself once this one runs out. I used it with the Shea Moisture Coconut Hibiscus shampoo and conditioner, and the OGX coconut curls frizz-defying curl styling milk.
Jessie from Bakersfield, CA
My curls are between 3b and 3c. I would always use about 5 products in my hair and it still came out frizzy and dry. So my hair stylist recommended this product for my curls, I immediately loved it. It's the only product I use on my hair. It keeps my curly soft and hydrated.
Works great but a bit sticky
Looking for curl from New York
I really like the texture of the product itself. It is thick and helps keep the curl in my hair. But it stays thick and leaves a residue on the hair. I guess if you wash you hair daily it is not bad, but I try to go a day or two and it is hard to do with this product. But I continue to use it - so how bad could it be??!!
Wanted to love it, but it was too heavy
Katelyn from Alexandria, VA
I wanted to love this, because I love Ouidad products, but this was just SO heavy and greasy on me. I had hoped I could use it for its intended purpose (a primer) but the only way I can probably keep it is if I use as as a conditioner and wash it out. I expected more of a mousse, but it's a thick, heavy cream. Oh well. I'm sure it works well for other gals with different curl patterns!
T from Eastern PA
This got 3 stars due to poor product design.
I was looking for a product to encourage my curls. This helped give me long ringlets and frizz control. Cannot stop playing with my curls and bounce.
The only thing I do not like is the nozzle. Hard to use and flimsy. I have drained the product into another container.
This product is GREAT.
Curly Chula from New Jersey
For this product, less is best! Use about the size of a quarter and a half for the whole head. You'll be fine!
