I have tried ALL of Ouidad's styling products and I always go back to curl quencher. I even tried the new curl immersion line and while I loved it at first I had to go back to the curl quencher because the gel made my hair way to crunchy.
This product is great for curl thin hair as it dose not weigh it down and its not greasy.
For this price and from this brand I would expect more. PLUS it says it is Moisturizing! Far from the truth. It made my hair dry and it felt like I put rubbing alcohol all through my hair. I wish I had known that the second ingredient is alcohol, I never would have bought it. How can it be moisturizing if it is nearly all alcohol. I wish still had the packageto return or exchange it.

The gel is a runny consistency works well for my curly hair. It is not sticky, it is buildable and does not leave any white residue. I would definitely recommend.

No Hold. I tried this on top of curlsmith hold me softly. I diffused. It took a long time for my hair to dry with the diffuser. Afterwards there wasn't any hold and I didn't notice any shine at all and there was a bit frizziness which usually doesn't happen with my curlsmith dippity do gel combo. This may be for others but not me. For reference I have 3b,3c fine high density virgin hair. This is more for someone who doesn't use creams or leave ins and only uses gel. Scent smells very nice and clean with a bit of citrus.

this made my hair way curlier and gave me a lot of volume, but it did dry my hair as well. my hair is still soft but not nearly as soft as it when i don't use this product. does what it claims to as far as curls go but i will keep looking for something more moisturizing

I really wanted to like product, but after using for over a month, comitted to using entire bottle, it overdried my hair and leaves flakey residue after it dries.

Deceiving photo. I wanted a gel with a pump.

My stylist put this gel in my hair during my last visit. I truly loved the results. When I saw the ingredients, I had to pass on using it in the future. Too bad. It would be a great product.

one of best products I have found for type 4 hair

I used this gel after a curl cream while hair was very wet. I have high porosity, 2b/c natural hair. This product is a little drying for me. The hold is good. I would buy it in a pinch only.

This is the best gel I've ever used in my hair. Has hold for my thick curly hair yet it leaves my hair with a nice soft cast and shine. Second day hair looks nicer and softer with no white film. This product really does what it says it does.

Finally figured out the routine that works this g has enough hold but not rock hard hold. 3a/3b fine curls

My girlfriend bought this product, but quickly realized it was not for her type of wavy hair but thought it would work for me! Yes it does! Lightweight, not sticky, leaves my hair soft and smelling great! Works well to tame the frizzies. After washing my hair, I apply my leave-in conditioner and then put my hair in my Turbie Twist. After about 5 minutes, I take my hair out of my twist and then I apply about a nickel to quarter size of the Ouidad. I do NOT comb or rake it through; I rub it all over my palms and then scrunch it onto my curly locks. This is just what I found works best for me. I tried raking it through and using it when my hair was still wet (after applying my leave in) and then putting it up in the twist, but I found applying it to my damp hair and scrunching it in produced the best result for me.

I just recently started wearing my hair curly again and have been trying different products with disappointing results. I decided to give this a try as it was on sale for 50% off. I'm so glad I decided to try it. First I applied the AG Recoil cream and then applied this for hold and let me tell you it is a divine combination! If you want even better results I'd highly reccomend using the black orchid diffuser. My hair came out super curly and bouncy without being crunchy. I can't stop looking in the mirror! I will definitely be repurchasing even if it's not on sale!

I was hoping it would be more hydrating. Not bad. Just hoping it would be amazing.

Curl Quencher leaves my hair, soft, hydrated and the curls are perfect. I absolutely love this product for my thin, fine, low density hair.

Price is too much compared to other brands.

I love this Moisturizing styling gel. I have always used the Climate control gel but after reading the reviews I decided to give this one a try. It took a couple of uses for my hair to adapt to the change but after that it has been great! It gives my curls definition without wearing them down and leaves them soft and manageable. I highly recommend it!

Amazing product! It has a good hold but does not make my hair crunchy.
Courtney B. from Undisclosed
This product is light weight and moisturizing. I wish it was better for frizz and hold.
Rachel T. from Undisclosed

This gel allows my hair to curl without the frizz. I love that it leaves my hair soft and no flakes when it dry.

I use this as a base to start my hair routine, it helps keep the fly away s to a minimum.
Sandra from Massachusetts
Had really high hopes for this gel. I hear a lot of great things about this line. When I tried it, it did give me really nice curls, but, unfortunately, ruined my hair. It was extremely drying and made my scalp burn and was very irritating. After washing it out, I shed so much, never lost so much hair in a wash before. It was awful. Do not recommend.
Joy P. from Undisclosed
I really love Ouidad products, they don't dry out my hair and really help me control my curls. I do get crunch, however, once I scrunch and fluff, that goes away.
