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.

Let me start by saying this product is pure gold for a curly headed 3b/3c hair type like me. This is one of the few leave in conditioners I have found that does not have coconut oil in it. Coconut oil for my hair dries it out, and my hair starts to repel water and products. Making it hard for any of my products to penetrate my hair shaft. My hair would not grow for the longest time, until I stopped using coconut oil based products. It is so hard to find products that don't contain coconut oil for curly hair. I was so happy to see this was one of them, I was drawn to their key ingredients of Olive oil, Shea butter, Glycerin, and Green Tea extract. All these ingredients work very well in my hair, this is a heavy thick leave in consistency. I wouldn't think of it as like a whipped mousse texture. It's more like a curling cream consistency. I don't section my hair with this product because it's not needed, I make sure after I brush my hair with the Ouidad reactivating mist that really helps give my curls definition btw, I flip my head over and use 4 dollops 1 per section of my head, the root, the upper mid shaft, the lower mid shaft, and the ends. My hair is really long and thick so I have to do it this way, but you can apply this product in a way that works best for your hair. It is a leave in conditioner, but you can use it alone or with other products. I read a review that said this product does not mix well with other products, that is partly true. I have tried mixing it with different brands of my other hair care products that I have and this product does not work well with them. I have paired this product with Ouidad's feather light cream and Stronger hold heat and humidity gel. It does work well with those, but honestly you can use this alone. It's like a curl routine dream of a one and done.
My new holy grail
EB from Wisconsin
I have very fine, curly hair. In winter, my hair gets dry and dull so I decided to give this a try. My curls have never looked better! They are shiny and defined and yet, not weighed down at all. I absolutely love this product!
I love this for refreshing curls, works great not crunchy bu
Gigi from Pittsburgh pa
I run this in my hands apply to dry hair and diffuse for a minute.I get soft refreshed curls. You don't need to use much.
Absolute daily must-have!
AH from NH
I use this daily as a styling product and absolutely love it! My hair salon that specializes only in curly hair patterns suggested this product and they were spot on. Hydrates curls without weighing them down, helps with frizz and smells amazing! It can also be used as a conditioner too.
Meg from CT
Paired with a hydrating shampoo and used a small amount on my ends as a leave in. Very good product.
Works well but doesn't last

I have fairly thick color treated hair that comes to the middle of my back, a mix of 2a and 3a. This does wonders, I apply it before curling creams and gels and it has helped immensely. Leaves my curls soft and eradicated a lot of the frizz. Sadly I'm already running out and it's only been about a month.
Leaves my curls feeling soft and nourished
Tina from NY
I use this product as a primer before I use the Ouidad heat and humidity gel.
Amazing for wavy hair
Naegraebae from Orlando
I use it on its own because it will weigh my hair down if I layer products or even if I use too much of it. But I really love it, it works best in wet hair and you only need a little. I have long hair and scrunching it up is the best method. I even got my bf to start using it. Really good for finer hair types.
Annie from Green Bay, Wisconsin
I use this whenever I wash. I don't leave in because my hair gets weighed down easily. I only use a small amount as I don't need a whole hand full for my hair. But I've been irritated that I've only had it less than a month and the container is almost empty. I would have expected it to last much longer. I would have saved my money for something else if I would have known.
Love love love!!!

I have Mariah Carey curls and my hair is very soft so I have to wash my hair every day because the curls go flat. This keeps my curls tight and I don't wash for 4 days now! I flip my hair over then add a little by scrunching. You don't need a lot of this product. Like one pump does the job. I only use it at the ends of my curls and scrunch up!
Worth its weight in gold!

Ouidad has the best products for curly girls!!
The Only Product My Curls Need
Mel from New York, NY
I bought this product a few years ago and I hated it because I used it as directed - as a primer to use under other styling products, which resulted in greasy and weighed down curls. It smells amazing though. I pushed it to the back of my curl product cabinet and forgot about it. Flash forward a few years later, while I was working from home early 2020, I didn't want to use my daily hair products just to chill at home in pajamas (I was using Ouidad's leave-in conditioner, curl quencher styling cream, and advanced climate control stronger hold gel), so I took out the whipped curls just to put some product in my hair and used it ALONE and styled as usual - applied in sections, implemented the rake and shake method, and let air dry. My curls came out AMAZING. They were defined, soft and shiny and they stayed that way all day. You know how after you scrunch the crunch out your curls look bomb but then after a few hours your ends can get a bit parched and start getting frizzy? None of that with the whipped curls. It has just the right amount of hold and weight to keep my curls defined and frizz free all day and I just can't get over the smell. Now, this is the only product I use in my hair (although on humid days, I use a little bit of the advanced climate control gel, and I just lightly scrunch it in). I highly recommend my fellow curlies try this, but try it alone, or with minimal other products, and also don't use too much of this as a little goes a long way.
I will NOT buy again

Yes send as leave in conditioner
Amazing! Wish they would change the packaging though...
Cocoglutz from Oregon
I love this product! I have 3a curls and fell in love with the oil cleanser shampoo prior to this and I think the two work great together! The only reason I'm giving 4 out of 5 stars is because it's in a mouse type container. Why in the world would you put a daily IN SHOWER conditioner in a pressurized, combustible bottle?? When I bought it, I figured it was because of the texture of the product, but as far as I can tell, it's the same consistency as any normal conditioner. Other than having store my conditioner in a different place than in the shower, this product is great.
This product does not own up to the price.
Shy from Las Vegas
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

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

Great product. Love how thick the product is & it really helps with frizz & shaping of curls.

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.
