Comments about Ouidad PlayCurl Volumizing Shampoo:

The product has a really powdery-geriatric type smell to it, also does include sulfates. I have been on a curl journey for over a year now trying everything I can to make my curls the best they can be. If you're like me, this is probably not for you. It dried my hair out, and I'd say the results after wash day were lackluster and not impressive.

      I only shampoo when I need to so, about twice a week. After just one use I could feel a difference. My curls were spiraly and bouncy.

          This product lathers well and really cleans your hair. I was disappointed because it has sulfates in it which can strip hair color. At this price point I expect better ingredients than that!

                      Hi Lindsey,

                      This product is best for thin or fine hair as it works to plump curls to help them look and feel thicker, with more definition and volume.
