VitalCurl Define & Shine Curl Styling Gel-Cream is the newest styling technology created to enhance and define your most beautiful waves & curls.

Curls are sealed with hydration, keeping them soft and shiny all day. The non-sticky gel-cream texture easily glides onto hair without weighing it down.

          I followed the directions while using. This product unfortunately made my hair feel REALLY dry and course, which it can be naturally but it made it worse than it is naturally.

          Comments about Ouidad VitalCurl Define & Shine Styling Gel-Cream:

          I love their shampoo & styling cream, but this just flattened my hair and made it straighter instead of enhancing the curls. Plus the frizz was crazy. Pretty shocked as I was expecting to love it too.

            I have been fighting my curls/waves for years. Spending time blow drying and flat-ironing, product after product; some worked for awhile but I always ended up with what felt like cotton candy on my head. This product and other Quidad products as well as a Quidad cut have changed the way I feel about my hair. I love it now,so easy to care for and soft .Great product even makes my grays behave.

              I have long hair (halfway down my back) with medium curl and had a hard time finding a product that controlled frizz and kept an all day hold. This product is amazing! I wash my hair every other day and for second day wear I add a little water with a quarter size dab of gel and it looks fresh and revitalized!

                Comments about Ouidad VitalCurl Define & Shine Styling Gel-Cream:

                Not for the morning rush before work. Product works best when it sits on the hair for awhile after applied, then diffused. It produces very nice, soft, non-sticky or crunchy curls that way. Hair frizzes out when applied and blow dried immediately (10 min) after.
