Comments about Ouidad Tress Effects Styling Gel:

I actually combine a few pumps of this with my Advanced Climate Control gel when I desire more hold since I am not a fan of hairspray. Use sparingly because using too much will make your hair stiff. I have medium length fine textured hair, but a lot of it.

    Comments about Ouidad Tress Effects Styling Gel:

    I have long curly thick hair and I must say that this product works great! I use it on soaking wet hair....that's the only way it works for me. I tried it on damp hair and it just wouldn't hold my curls so I started using it on very wet hair and it works like magic. Makes my curls defined and no frizz. Love this product!

        Comments about Ouidad Tress Effects Styling Gel:

        I love this! Makes my curls defined and shiny, bouncy and healthy looking. But a word of caution...the amount you use matters! For my medium to long, wavy/curly hair, I need just slightly more than a quarter sized dollop on wet hair. Then I am set for the day!

            Comments about Ouidad Tress Effects Styling Gel:

            Took years to find this product. I've tried all sorts of brands and I stick with this one. The gel dries in place, meaning it holds the curls without drying out. Rewetting restores the curl, so it can last a couple of days. I look forward now to styling my hair because of the use of this product.

              Easy to use. Hair stays soft. Works well in dry region (winter air, upper michigan) Not sure it's enough to control in high humidity (summer, n.carolina). Good scent.

                  • Q:

                    How does this compare to Ouidad's Advanced Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel? I live in a windy climate, and have wavy to curly hair, straighter on the top. Wind is my hair's enemy! Makes it totally frizz.

                      A:

                      Tress Effects Styling Gel has a stronger hold and enhances your natural curl pattern. The Advanced Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel provides a much softer natural look and is our ultimate frizz fighter.
