Overall, good curly hair product from Michigan
I was going to return this product along with the other one I purchased from this line but I am glad I gave it another whirl before giving up on it. I originally applied it when my hair was damp/starting to dry which left my curls undefined and frizzy. For me, the key is to apply while hair is near soaking wet and then scrunch with a microfiber towel and allow to air dry (or blow dry with a diffuser, whatever you prefer). My hair is not as soft as it is with other products I have used but it eliminates one major issue that I often have with those products which is that this stuff does not make my roots appear oily/greasy and it creates volume at the roots instead of my a hair falling flat at the top!! For that, it is worth it even though I have to try a little harder to encourage the curls to form.
My Devacurl Replacement
Jess B from Buffalo, NY
I have spent hundreds maybe thousands of dollars trying to find a new hairline to replace Devacurl. I started using Devacurl almost 5 years ago and was in LOVE! Sadly, over the years I started to experience hair loss and the product left my hair feeling dry and brittle. This Ouidad line has brought life back to my waves. My hair feels and looks healthy. It's shiny and soft once again. I feel like my volume is back. I had to play around with the styling product but after a couple washes I think I've got a good handle on it. The smell isn't overbearing and I find that I like it better than most of the products I've used. It's not overly fragrant but stays with you most of the day. The only con I've noticed so far is that my hair is slightly frizzy but not in a bad way. I'm chalking that up to my hair getting used to using the new product.
Dries out hair, not much slip
Xena from Texas
Left a weird residue on my hair, difficult to apply thoroughly because of the lack of slip. Like the other Ouidad Shaper products, it made my hair dry, frizzy, and tangled when dry. I used the same application techniques I use for my other products and thoroughly detangled my hair, so the issue must be with the priduct.
Defines curls/waves beautifully
Jazz from Orange City, Florida
I apply this to my hair wet and let air dry and my curls become defined. Smells amazing and doesn't leave a sticky film on my hands after application! Will be buying again!
Great Product, Hoping for Better Packaging
Jay from AZ
I've been using this for about three weeks now. It took some experimenting to figure out the right amount, but it was worth the time. My curls are more defined, have more volume, are soft (not crunchy), and have some hold. The hold lasts throughout the day and even withstands drives in the car with the windows down. I have to use this with my primer for better results; it was not as effective as a standalone product. My skin is very sensitive and acne prone, and this has not caused breakouts for me. My hair is very thick and coarse. I don't think that this would work well for those with fine hair and imagine it would weigh fine curls down or feel heavy. Also, I really don't like that this is in a jar. I wish that it was in some sort of closed packaging, because sticking hands into the jar increases opportunities for contamination of the product. This is why I knocked off a star. Otherwise, I would have given it five.
I do love this product/this line!
Sarah Grace from Tulsa, OK
I used Ouidad products several years ago when they first came out & you basically had to buy them through the infomercials. I just went back to Ouidad & I don't even know why I ever stopped using these products! This particular product does very well on my hair, being that it is on the thicker end. I can definitely see more volume & my hair just overall seems healthier. For finer hair, I would think this product might be a bit too heavy...but I needed the heavier cream over the jelly in this line.
leaves hair heavily coated
nyccurls from new york
Ouidad deleted comments on their site so here i am. I tried this product and it leaves the hair so coated that i had to check if there was wax in it! I returned everything in this collection except the shampoo and refresher. I have 3c fine curls.
