Rosa from Colorado
I have 2c/3a fine hair and products always weigh it down. With this gel, combined with the 3-in-One Revitalizing Milk, i get great definition without weighing my hair down. I also really like the smell, but I think it would bother people who are sensitive to smells because it is a very strong perfume smell. Overall I would recommend it to those with fine curls.

Ouidad kept deleting my negative reviews, i am over them! But i tried this product and oh my the frizz!! It gives volume but THAT'S IT! NO hold, lasting definition, nothing!!! Do not buy this!
Left my hair feeling and looking like straw
Booboo from Jensen Beach Fl
I tried the Curlshaper shampoo, conditioner, revitalizing milk, volumizing jelly and reactivating mist. I used the products three times, trying to adjust them so they would work. Unfortunately, they made my hair dull, dry and lifeless and feeling heavily coated. My shower walls and floor AND my whole body beaded up from the waxy oily products! Trying to shampoo these products out was a nightmare and I had to use Ouidad waterworks three times before my hair felt clean. These are going back!
Not for curly hair

I have never tried Ouidad but had heard good things. I have fine hair, 2b/ 2c with some 3a. It is recovering from years of bleaching but I can still get nice loose curls. I used the recommended amount of product and by the time I was done diffusing my hair all of my beautiful curls were almost non existent. My hair was both curlier and had less frizz on day 7 before washing and styling than it did after my wash and styling with this. I don't know how but my hair is sooo frizzy. The frizz is so bad on day two that I have put it up and will be rewashing today just to get my curls back and to banish the frizz and fly aways (can't even remember the last time my hair had fly aways). Normally I can skip washing until day 6 or 7 and still have curls and low frizz. It offered no hold, what little curl made it past the diffusing was gone in three hours. This should actually be marketed as a volumizer for fine straight hair, as adding some volume was the only thing it did. Buy a travel size if you want to try it.
Love it!! Excellent for waves!

I have naturally wavy, yet fine hair. I've struggled to find the right products to make my natural waves look nice, so I typically blow dry my hair straight, then use a curling wand everyday! Ugh! I saw this and ordered it with the 3 in 1 revitalizing milk. I learned a long time ago, it's always best to use curling products in soaking wet hair. So after I shower, I brush my soaking wet hair, put in a generous amount of the revitalizing milk product throughout my hair, and apply about a quarter size amount of the jelly product throughout my hair. Then I scrunch my hair a bit, and I'm good to go. It gives me the most the beautiful natural waves I've ever seen on my head, lol! I'm so happy I took a risk and bought these products!

I have this low porosity hair the 2b/c mixture. My roots are straight so my waves and curls lack volume. I clean my hair then wide tooth comb my hair under the shower water, and form clumps. I turn off the water, add a glob of this in my hands and rub together then use praying hands and scrunch the product in. I also apply gel for more hold.
I definitely have less definition (more waves less spirals) but I have more volume without the frizz and crunch. It also makes me drying time faster. I definitely will try out more products. If I use this on a refresh day, I wet my hair, dilute the glob and then apply the same method.
love this stuff!

I was excited to try this product, because I do have fine wavy hair and many products weigh my hair down. I was pleasantly surprised as it did give me volume, it gave me definition, and my hair was so soft. i did combine this with the milk within the same line just to give me some moisture and it worked pretty well. I used this jelly after using the shampoo and conditioner, which I wasn't really impressed with, so I'll be trying this with different shampoos and conditioners.

Ouidad deleted my negative review from their website. I usually love their products and was excited to try this line on my fine curly hair. No matter how much or little I used, it made my hair simultaneously dull, frizzy, and extremely sticky to touch, even after it was completely dry. Using it with the revitalizing milk, which they recommend, made it even worse. Washing it out was a nightmare. It felt like I was trying to wash wax out of my hair. It won't come out without a lot of shampoo, which is terrible for curly hair. It does provide some volume, but it's definitely not worth it for all the other problems it caused. Glad I only bought the trial size.
