Rated 4.16 out of 5 stars
With this I only use devacurl leave in decadence followed by Ulta defining gel. I've tried many creams and definers but this product coils my curls better than I could using my fingers. Personally I haven't tried a leave-in by ouidad, but that will be my next purchase after my devacurl leave in runs out. I will say, with define and shine, I have to use a leave in before to provide moisture for the ouidad product to lock in. But once my hair is properly and deeply moisturized, it lasts until my next wash day.
For reference: I have 3c, low porosity, fine, curly/coily hair. I attached photos of my hair with the products mentioned above
Don't mind this as long as it is used with another product. For a light feeling product it weighs down the curls/waves. Its the straightest I have ever had my wavy hair look. Not terrible with frizz control. Honestly since it weighs the curls down and I have to use the product in small amounts as a supplement to other products it isn't worth the $$$. Really disapointed since I was looking forward to using this line, but I will never buy it again.

I have used this product exclusively for 2.5 years and I love it! I have naturally curly hair and it keeps my curls hydrated. I highly recommend!

I'm not a fan. Seems to make my hair very dry. Not much hold.

This cream is extremely heavy. Very silicone-y effect to it. I have thick hair and even then, it weighs my curls down incredibly. It also stays too crunchy. I have to crunch out the crunch and my curls still feel stiff. It also leaves the hair, very dry and brittle if I don't use a leave in conditioner. My hair is pretty damaged, so maybe that's why it looks this way after applying the cream, but we'll see.

Was going to buy a gel product but salesperson told me that gels leave your hair stiffer. This product seems to work well but the real test will be when the humidity is high. The fragrance is pleasant but doesn't seem to linger. My hair is very wavy.

I've tried so many curly hair products over the years. This one is definitely a new go to for me winter curly hair routine. I use a leave in conditioner and then the gel cream perfect - amount of hold. :-)

This works so well for my hair. I use a leave in, than add this in sections through out my hair and add a small amount of gel to set. It makes my hair defined without weighing it down and the hold lasts for 4-5 days for me. If you have fine curls that need moisture try this product!

I just love this line of ouidad products, they are perfect for my hair, and I just tried this gel cream which makes my hair look super natural.

The only thing I like about this product is the smell. Otherwise, it makes my hair texture gross and causes my some of my hair to curl, while the rest of my hair is wavy and weird. I've tried using less, I've tried using more. Same result, just way worse if I use more. My curly hair looks better with no product than with using this stuff. It's making sense why it was on sale at the beauty store I got it at.

It definitely defines your curls, but the texture it gives your hair was disappointing. Dry and rough.

I usually love Ouidad products and thought this one would be good for my dry hair. It wasn't. My hair felt dryer after using it, and the promised shine didn't materialize.

It dried my hair
Amy from Florida
I was looking to try something new for my curls and this product looked promising. I have really curly, dry course hair. I also highlight/ lowlight it every couple months. I also live in Florida so the humidity is brutal. With that said this product did not work for my hair type. The gel has a nice smell. However my curls were frizzy and it left my hair feeling super dry. I will be returning this.

I use this product in conjunction with other Oidad products to help keep my curls soft and curly

Terrible; my hair was dry and didn't have its normal luster and bounce, returned the products immediately.

I am always trying new gels and creams to find one that is perfect for my curls. But I've have stopped trying new ones when I found this one. My local store stopped carrying this product but instead of trying a new one, I went on line to get it. And the website has great sales.

Holds my curls in place even through humid days. Smells great too.
Rebecca K. from Undisclosed
I was really hoping this product would work for my curls. It didn't do anything to control the frizz. My friend loves it so it must just be my hair type
Marybek from Denver
Most gels and moose's are too thick for my hair and flattens my curls. However this hybrid has been my absolute favorite for bouncy curls. I have THIN hair. This product is light weight and perfect for me!! It also smells amazing

I have a lot of very fine very curly hair that will frizz if there is a hint of humidity. This product is a big part of my styling routine. After a leave in moisturizer I apply the VitaCurl Gel-Cream. It provides the body I need without the weight. I air dry my hair most of the time and this product is light enough to allow a quick drying time. I love it!
Kara B. from Undisclosed
I prefer the styling gel. This is definitely a second day curl cream...

Medium hold yet soft on the hair. Perfect product. The best on the market. Ten stars to me.
Keeps your curls hydrated and bouncing! Used to be a Deva Curl user for years, not anymore! Unfortunately Ulta is always out at the store i shop BUT I drive all over Dallas to find it and buy several at a time.
