Rated 4.13 out of 5 stars
I think I have tried every product available to control my thin, fine, and VERY frizzy hair. I was absolutely desperate when I found this product. It didn't mention frizz control, but I decided to give it a try anyway. It is perfect! After shampooing my hair, I lightly towel dry it, then I pour a little of the product in the palm of my hand and work it through my hair. A little goes a long way. I scrunch my hair and let it air dry. When my hair is almost dry, I finger comb it and I'm done. My curls are well-formed, and, above all, smooth. On days two and three, and sometimes four, I dampen my hair, scrunch, and finger comb, and it's perfect again. I LOVE this product.
Trying out Ouidad at the recommendation of several Ulta employees. I have been a Deva Curl for about a year now. I had a great chat conversation on the website through the chat option about the best products for me, my curl type, etc.. This styling gel was one of the ones they suggested to me. They offered a discount code 'TRY20' but didn't mention it would expire. When I went to pay for all of the products I purchased, 1) my items were no longer in my cart, so I had to review my browsing history to try and retrace the items that had been suggested to me and 2) the discount code was no longer working. When I reached out to customer service inquiring about these two items, they were not as patient and willing to work with me. The reason I had waited a several days to complete my purchase was because I was waiting for payday. It didn't leave a very good taste in my mouth. The products are good, my hair seems to respond well, however the inconsistent customer service experience concerns me.

I've been using the VitalCurl shampoo, conditioner, and gel for a couple years and absolutely love it! it took some time to adapt my hair routine to find the results I was looking for. I have thick, curly hair and it can get very dry. For me, I need to make sure that my hair is pretty wet (not dripping wet though) and then I apply the gel both by running my hands through my hair and then also by scrunching my hair. I also sleep with a satin cap to help overnight. In the mornings I spray my hair with water and tame it with my hands and use a little more gel only on the ends. I love that the gel lasts so long and I only need to buy a bottle every couple of months. I constantly get compliments on my hair! Expensive products at first but they last so long that it evens out!

This styling gel is easy to distribute through wet curls, and feels slippery instead of sticky. Once dry, my curls have great definition but are also flexible. My fine thin curls are not weighed down, so my hair looks thicker. Best if all, reactivating curls with water on day 2 or 3 is no problem at all! Love this product!

The product does what it says. Curls holds for days without frizz, even after high intensity workouts. Does not make hair hard or sticky.

Lightweight, not crunchy hold for natural curls. Great for working through hair and air drying.

This is by far the best gel for my fine natural 2c/3a curly hair!!! Finally found a gel that does not weigh down and holds great!!!
LolaAucoin from Cincinnati, OH
I love this gel. It gives my curls great definition, volume, and shine, and my hair looks great for 3-4 days without needing to touch up my curls. The only thing that would make it better for me would be a more tropical or fruity scent, but that's completely personal preference. The current scent is light and unobtrusive. It's wonderful when paired with the Vital Curl mousse for volume.
Bridgette from Memphis, TN
This product was just okay for me. I only purchased because the climate control gel was sold out, so I figured I would give this gel a try. This gel is very light weight, but didn't give my curls the hold and moisture I was looking for. It left my hair pretty frizzy around my roots and extremely dry on the ends. I found myself having to use way more product than normal to get a better hold. Doesn't create a good cast either.

I used to use a curling cream and then a gel to style my course curly hair. Now that I've discovered this product I skip the curling cream and go right to the gel. My hair looks great (and isn't heavy and weighed down like it was before), styles great (and BTW the style easily lasts 5 days), and the curls feel soft.

This is one of my favorite gels for my fine, low porosity, type 2c-3b hair. It's got a runny texture, easy to work through hair. The scent is light, smells great (to me), and doesn't linger forever. This gel has just enough protein to add some bounce without being a "protein product." It reactivates with water, so it's also great for refreshing. Ouidad is a bit pricey, but this gel is worth it for me.

Left my hair full of flakes and smell it's overpowering

Horrible styling gel
Christine R. from Undisclosed
I do not like this gel. I did not notice any special hold, antifrizz, or definition from this gel from other gel. I also did not notice any hydration from it. It also makes my hair take a very long time to dry. Lastly I really dislike the chemical smell to it.

My hair feels so dry and crispy. This formula didn't work for my hair. I used to have the climate control, and that was great. My curls were silky. This is terrible
Alice B. from Undisclosed
I like this product for my longer gray hair. It encourages wave definition and just the right amount of body for my fine textured hair.
Dana from San Diego
I like this product because it smells great and it feels very moisturizing. My hair dries softly but because there is no cast (it isn't the strongest hold gel), some days my hair ends up frizzy. I'd love it if it gave me more consistent results. Paired with a little bit of strong hold gel, it's great.
Rebecca K. from Undisclosed
I was excited to try this product because a curly friend said it was great. Unfortunately it didn't work for my curls at all. I was all frizz
Anita P. from Undisclosed
I love this stuff great all day hold
Ari S. from Undisclosed
Makes my hair looks stringy
Alicia M. from Undisclosed
Nice and light and doesn't get crunchy :) I have fine frizzy loose curls so it's a really tricky combo
Amber K. from Undisclosed
Very light weight which is great for my thin hair. Holds up great in the humidity, too.
Jill I. from Undisclosed
For us fine haired curly girls this is the product for you! It has a great scent. It holds the curl well without weighing it down by product. Definitely a blessing to me! :pray:
Sparkie from South West Florida
I live in south Florida. I'm 70 years old. Have tried a LOT of curl products. None have made my loose curls hold like this product. None have controlled frizz like this product. I tried the Ouidad humidity control gel & this product works much better for me. I have experimented & found applying this product when my hair is dripping wet works best for me. The next day I rewet my hair & apply more gel. I do NOT get product build-up.

I love love love this lightweight product and I appreciate that it has a very light scent.
judith b. from Undisclosed
This product is fabulous for maintaining curl in the summer humidity. it has a great hold throughout the day and I don't have to worry about my hair getting fuzzy. Another good thing is that the next morning, all I have to do is spray my hair with water, and the defined curls are back.
Kristi B. from Undisclosed
Nothing works with gray hair frizz, this doesn't provide definition. Smells nice.
