Rated 4.16 out of 5 stars
I am always looking for a good product to help make my hair stay in place all day without falling down a few hours later and then looking a hot mess, I've tried many many other products and I'm not totally satisfied yet but I can say that I so far this is the best one yet. It's cruelty free which I love and it really does shape your hair the way you want it to be. It helps my hair from looking frizzy and dried out it makes my curls look natural and beautiful all day long. A little goes a long way only thing I don't like is it leaves my hair sticky feeling and if you use to much on the roots it makes your hair look a little oily. And it does smell absolutely amazing. I would recommend this product.
I'd say this product is okay. It's definitely better than a lot of what's on the market as far as conventional products available. If I compare it to natural hair care brands it falls short but if I compare it to mainstream toxic brands it's definitely a lot better as far as being natural goes. It contains a lot of good natural and nourishing ingredients which is great. It also doesn't seem to contain parabens or the most toxic ingredients but it does contain still a lot of questionable stuff. Now as far as the product in use I like the scent as it smells somewhat familiar like a body shop product or something. It smells like grape or olive just fresh and pleasant. The product is creamy, smooth and nourishing. It goes on and works through the hair easily. I don't have irritation from it and it seems to do what it's supposed to. The packaging is not to my taste in design but is quality and looks expensive. I'd like to see all natural ingredients and recyclable packaging in the future.

I really don't care for the fragrance in this product and the smell is not pleasant at all whatsoever. If you use it by itself, prepare to have really dry and crunchy hair. I look forward to washing this stuff out.

I am so happy with this product and will definintely get the full size version after trying the travel size. It does wonders for my curls, smells great and is not at all sticky or stiff. Love it!

I'm a senior citizen so anyone can imagine how many "products" I have purchased and used on my curly hair! This gel cream is the best! Defines curls better than any product I have used. Excellent curls in place after a night's sleep. I highly recommend!

This product smells good, is not crunchy but I feel like my 2C curls did not hold up as well as I hoped in this Florida humidity without a layer of something extra!

I use multiple products and have found Ouidad is the best brand for my hair as far as defining my curls. I love how this along with Ouidad advanced climate control styling cream and then the climate control anti humidity gel; all 3 in that order then I finish off with hairspray. I think I just use Tresume hairspray nothing fancy, I have used bumble and bumble purple hair spray and it smells heavenly.

This product might be better for other hair types, but it did nothing for my 2a hair. It produced no curl definition--it just made my hair look frizzy and feel dirty.

My curly hair turned out great after using this gel cream.
Paulii27 from Undisclosed
Worked okay a little bit sticky on the gel cream for my likes, have tried other products that work better

I have 4c hair this product dried my hair out more then it should have. However my daughter has 3b hair and the product worked great for her hair.

I love this styling + shaping gel. It's very easy to apply and leaves my hair looking fabulous.

I used the shaving cream with my rods to curl my natural hair and the curls were very defined soft and even bouncy not stiff I absolutely love the product and would use it everyday except you don't need it everyday it's such a good product! Curls definitely last.

it worked ok however i would prefer more moisture for my hair type
Gemmy18 from Undisclosed
This product is amazing! I don't know what it is about it but it really tightened and defined my daughters curls. Apply on wet clean hair and then it defines the curls. It did make them a bit crunchy but I like the look so I wasn't concerned. I would recommend for all 3 and 4 curl friends!

This Boost Styling + Shaping Gel Cream that I received for free smells amazing! The instruction does say to apply to wet hair. I tried this Coil Infusion Gel cream on both my wet and dry hair. Unfortunately, none of the gel application worked for me.

This was a good product for curly hair. It does not have a strong smell and you can use a little that makes the product work. It does not leave a white residue in your hair when you use it. There is a lot in the tube, so I will be able to use the product for several times. I would purchase it again because it did help shape my curls, even if my are tighter ones.

I really enjoyed this gel cream. It helped my curls and i thought they were defined for days.

When using this as an everyday moisturizer, I am very pleased with the results it yields. Despite my previous warnings, my daughter ended up utilizing more than was necessary and it turned her hair white. However with liberal use you'll see adequate moisturizing to the hair and less frizz. Using this as part of your everyday hair routine, I can see yielding very positive results. Therefore I highly recommend this product for everyday use.

I have 3a classic curls and recently tried this as I got it as a sample. I loved it! I divide my hair into sections and use a small amount of gel in each section then use the rake & shake method. My hair has never felt crunchy or stiff and the best part is it doesn't leave a residue on your hands when you touch your hair after it's dry. Now this will not keep out the frizz on a humid day. I'll have to go back to my Climate Control Gel for those days. For regular days though, this is my new favorite.

This product was just ok. I was not in love with it.

I don't normally use a gel cream for shaping my curls, because I don't like any residue in my hair. The Ouidad Coil Infusion Styling + Shaping Gel Cream did not leave any residue. I didn't see as much change in the definition as expected, but I could tell there was more of a curl-shape than my normal coil. I would be interested in using more of this line to see how the products work together.
Kristen from Undisclosed
I really wanted to like this, because I've hear Ouidad products are nice. However, this curl cream just wasn't it or me. It made my curls look significantly worse than other curl creams I use, and they were dry, frizzy, and not defined at all. Since it says it's a "gel cream," I did not use a gel after applying this cream (only leave-in conditioner). Overall, I would not recommend.

The Coil infusion styling and shaping gel didn't really hold my hair. I like how the gel felt and how the gel didn't leave a residue.
Amormio2510 from Undisclosed
Great shaping product! Doesn't leave the hair sticky or weighed down. Boosts the curls great! Defines and gives texture without residue! Leaves the hair soft to the touch.
