Rated 4.61 out of 5 stars
First off, I'd like to thank Odele for the sample of Odele Air Dry Styler that was sent for free as part of a BzzAgent campaign for the month of August 2023.
There are a few things I'd like to say about Odele Air Dry Styler, FIRST** as I mentioned in the headline, this product seems like it was meant for a very specific hair type, think 2C and up. My hair type is 2A/2B (wavy/medium) and I didn't have a good experience with it. I wanted to love this product b/c it smells soooo good (lemons/fresh cut grass/summertime as a kid). My Husband has 3A hair type (fine/doll curls) and he loved Odele Air Dry Styler. For him, it offered frizzless, bouncy, buttery soft curls, and for me- a weighted down greasy feeling, shapeless mess. We BOTH used it in the same manner.
Second thing I would like to mention is DO NOT brush your hair w/ your favorite brush while using this product. It will leave a strange white film in your bristles after it dries. Use your fingers to style before the product dries.
Third, Odele Air Dry Styler IS NOT STICKY!!! So often you come across hair care creams/gels that you just cant seem to wash off or when it dries, it becomes stiff and sticky, but with this product your hair will dry soft and manageable, no flaking or white streaks.
If I had to compare this product to others, this would be a cross between TIGI Catwalk Curls Amplified and Pantene Gold Series Braid Cream w/ ALL of the best traits of those products. This is a gel, not a cream. It has the consistency of TIGI Bed Head "Smoothing Stuff".
Again, I cannot stress this enough. From *MY* experience, Odele Air Dry Styler is meant for hair types 2C and up.
Odele sent me this free sample because I participate in the BzzAgent sampling program.
I recently tried Odele's Air Dry Styler gel (as a free product in exchange for my honest review) with high hopes of achieving smoother, sleeker hair without heat styling. Regrettably, my experience with this product fell far short of my expectations. Despite following the instructions, the gel left my hair feeling surprisingly dry and failed to provide the promised smoothness. I also did not notice any significant improvement in the overall texture or frizz control. While the scent was pleasant and it didn't leave my hair feeling sticky, the primary purpose of this gel, which is to enhance natural texture and smoothness, was not achieved in my case. Overall, Odele's Air Dry Styler gel did not deliver the desired results, leaving me disappointed in its performance.

I have wavy, thick, frizzy hair. I dont always have time to style it because im a mom to a young kiddo 😅 i showered, put the air dry styler in my hair, brushed it out & put a claw clip in to run out of the house. my hair is frizz free, soft, & looks healthy. This will be my go to!! In my opinion its the best of both a leave in conditioner & styling cream. Im just not a big fan of the texture but i can definitely look past the texture.

I do not love using heat on my hair as I have wavy hair, so I normally prefer to air dry. Before I wasn't using any products but this one literally changed my life. My hair is so smooth and held together after air drying it looks so good. I'm obsessed thank you Isabella lanter for recommending lol

I like a lot of Odele products, but this, unfortunately, is not one of them. Made my hair tangled and crunchy. Will be looking to give away or throw away.

I have never found a product that works very well with my hair texture, but this is it!!! Mucho bonus points for being fragrance free. Love!!!
Lin from Fayetteville, NC
Received the air style for Christmas and absolutely love it! My hair is so soft and shiny! It does what it says, no frizz, separates, no crunchy sound effects! My birthday is soon, buying the shampoo, conditioner, leave in conditioner and more of the air dry. Happy birthday to me!!!! Just saved me the cost of a Brazilian blow out!!!!!
Brit from Boston
A friend of mine gave this to me. She had gotten it as a free sample but said she never air-dried her hair. I used it and sent her a picture, and she was like OMG, maybe I need to air-dry my hair. This product is amazing! It makes my hair fall beautifully with just enough wave and volume. I seriously look like I had a blowout.

I've tried this a few times on my wavy hair, both damp and dry. Every time it dries, it leaves little white lint-like flakes throughout my hair. At first, I thought I might have touched something with lint and then my hair, but it's this product. 2 stars for it being lightweight and doesn't leave your hair feeling "hard" like other gels but it's not worth it if its going to leave lint on your hair.
David from Florida
This stuff is amazing. I'm 28 and have spent my entire adult life trying hundreds of hair products to try and get a natural look that gets rid of frizz 100% of the time. look no further this is it.
Trisha from St. Louis moy
I picked up the product just to try something different and I love it!
Kraken from PNW
This works great with my fine, wavy-curly hair. A pea-sized dab worked through my hair leaves it curly and frizz-free when air dried. And (surprise!) I tried it when blow drying and my hair was smooth, shiny, and frizz-free. Woo hoo!
Sunny from North Carolina
I received odele air dry styler through bzzagent campaign and odele for free in exchange of my honest review. My experience with this product I like gel texture with mild fresh smell. I applied product with my hand into wet hair. It enhanced my wavy hair. It doesn't feel sticky but it made my hair dry which I dislike. It is good hair styling option easy at home.

I was nervous about this at first because its kinda watery and it smells bad, but I gave it a try and its the beat air dry product I've ever used! It keeps my curls in shape and theres no frizz. Its not sticky and theres no residue!
Wavy hair girl from Tampa, fl
My hair is wavy and fine, but i have a lot of it. In the Florida summer i hate to blow dry my hair so I use this instead. It's the only product of its kind that leaves my hair shiny and structured (but not crunchy like gel).
I put a large dollop on my hair while still in the shower while it's soaking wet. I noticed when i wasn't using enough product that I didn't like the result. So now I use more than I think I should.
I tell all my friends about this stuff 💞
akacia from fl
i picked this up alomg with the smoothing shampoo and conditioner and i love it. the whole line is great and makes my hair so much more managable, soft shiny, smoothy and less frizzy. my hair looks straighter and more put together and i love this especially if your a quick air dry girl like me. def a must try. 10/10
Jeff from CTX
A decent styling product but I wasn't really blown away by it. It smells great and does smooth, but I just didn't love the feel of it in my hair or feel like it stands out from the competition. I received this product for free in exchange for my honest feedback.
Jeffro from Paulding, Ohio
It worked great on my girlfriends hair. She absolutely loved it. She said she uses it when she needs a quick styler. She said she would recommend it to anyone. She said she will definitely be buying it again.
Tiff from Michigan
After my shower I added about a quarter sized amount into my palms and ran it throughout my wet hair focusing on the ends mostly. I then let it air dry. I have fine straight hair and this product helped my flyaways to stay at a minimum without having to use heat on my hair. My only complaint is the smell of it, it's not my favorite scent, not terrible but I would rather it be scent free if possible.
KelBen2010 from Cleveland Ohio
At first I thought the product was very sticky and very gel like. I tried to add it before brushing my towel dried hair but it didn't seem good to put in until after I brushed. Once I got the hang of it I used it consistently every morning as part of my hair routine it didn't give me and frizz and defined my curls more.

I have really loved this Air Dry Styler from Odele, especially as a mom with limited time and hormonal hair changes! It gives me a little texture and volume that brings my dull hair to life, and it only takes a few seconds to use. My hair is usually not a topic of conversation, but on two separate occasions in the past month I've gotten compliments on my hair out of the blue when using this styler!
Tori from Pa
My hair is pretty thin and flat so it's no suprise I was excited to try a style product that could change at least something. The Odele air dry styler did have a better effect than i initially was excited for.
Lnqui from Virginia
I used this product after washing, on damp hair, to style my waves. It looked perfect! A little goes a long way, smells light and clean. It gave me pretty, non-frizzy waves.
Busy mama from Los Angeles
I used it after I washed my hair and it dried so nicely. I could run my fingers through and it felt so soft. My son also loves it and now I find it in his bathroom. Thanks Bzzagent! This was great!
RichyRich from Houston, Tx
First of all, I love the smell of this product. It isn't overwhelming at all. The consistency is rich enough to nicely cost my strands. It helped to tame my frizz and bring some definition to my curls. It's helpful to have in your arsenal if you don't have time to style your hair after a wash.
Little1Kt from Appleton, WI
I have tried this product a handful of times and it doesn't really have a scent nor does it leave your hair feeling greasy/oily. It is light on your hair, but I'm not sure that I really saw a whole lot of difference.
GoalGirl from Madill,OK
I have never really enjoyed the blow dry part of my hair styling routine, and I would just skip it all together, if I could, or as long as I didn't mind going out with some lumps and frizz, and 🤞for low humidity. Thanks to this amazing new AIR DRY STYLING product by Odele, I can skip the blow dryer without any consequences. It's absolutely amazing, just wash, towel dry, apply into hair ,style, and BOOM! That's it! It leaves my hair feeling and smelling awesome with its 100% natural fragrance, and I don't have to worry about frizz. It's a vegan, cruelty free, and dermatologist AND pediatrician tested, which just adds to the awesomeness of this product, and the name, and the meaning behind it all, and with that I SHARE with you my honest review, and say I absolutely recommend Odele Air dry Hair Styler.
