Questions & Answers for Ouidad PlayCurl Volumizing Foam

Question
Does this work for straightening as well as curling?
My hair is naturally wavy and fine in texture. I like to blow it straight but can never get it smooth - I have fly-aways and in the humid South Texas climate my hair usually goes limp and frizzy. Many times I just let it dry by itself until damp then use a difuser for more curl, but even then I get the frizzies. I want a product that will control the frizz when wear my hair curly and help smooth it when I blow it out. I have always preferred mousse over gel as gel can be a little sticky. Any suggestions?

I don't believe this product should be used to straighten your natural curly hair. However, their are other products that are just as great for straitening your hair; I like to use Ojon, Wen, or any other products that contain natural oils. Having Curly hair automatically means your gonna have dry hair, and because heat tends to damage your already dry hair this can help protect it.

I wouldn't use this foam to try to straighten your hair. but if your hair is wavy-curly you would probably benefit from this in your styling. It might give you a great wavy/curly look

I have used this product when I blow dry my hair straight and have liked that extra body. I do however use a serum like Morrocan oil or something similiar so it gives a softness to the hair style.

I would use curl control by Ouidad. It eliminates frizz and is very smoothing

PlayCurl does control frizz. Just make sure that you apply the right amount needed for your hair. For example, I have shoulder length hair and I use 4 full pumps. Also, apply it all over your hair; underneath, on top of your hair, on the sides, all over. It will control frizz. A couple of days ago, I was out by the water/river and there was some high winds and it was HOT!! The wind was blowing my hair ALL over the place. After a couple of hours, I did NOT have a frizzy at all and my hair still looked great. It has been 3 days since the water/river winds and my hair still looks GREAT and has volume, waves/curls and best of all no frizz....

I like the volume and curl this gives but I still have to use a serum to keep my fine wavy hair from becoming a puffy ball. (For me, FrizzEase actually works the best of everything I've tried - and I've tried lots in all different price ranges. Though admittedly it does take some practice to find the right amount to use.)

My hair is naturally curly and fine like yours. And its also the way i like it. This foam actually makes it so. I guess you would want to use another poduct to make it straight. :)

I would go with Carol's Daughter hair milk. It provides lots of moisture, your hair won't be crunchy, and it helps define the curl and smooth the frizzies.

To avoid frizz if you are styling curly, I would recommend not using any hairdryer, even with a diffuser -- I have found this product works best and leaves my hair shiny and not at all frizzy when I leave it alone and let it air dry, I have not tried to use this product to straighten. Mousse in my experience is not the best straightener, gel works better, and is not sticky at all once the hair is dry. When I straighten my hair, I prefer to use a litle gel or "serum" type of product combed through damp hair, then blow dry with a big brush, and then I always use a finishing cream -- no matter what I put on my hair before I blow it out, it always looks puffy at first. I love Frederick Fekkai glossing cream, a little of that smoothed over blow-dried hair makes it look shiny and eliminates the puffy/frizzy problem.

I don't know how well it works as to straigten hair completely. I have used it to untightend my curls which works well. I don't use heating products on my hair so I don't know what the outcome will be. But when I used it my hair became more wavy and it did not frizz.

I occasionally use tress fx in addition to Playcurl Foam for added definition,but most of the time I use the foam alone. I find that less is more with fine curly hair

I use a bit of Climate Control or TressFX over top and SCRUNCH SCRUNCH SCRUNCH my hair instead of raking and shaking as Ouidad recomends. Then let my hair dry or diffuse. It makes my curls jump..

I use the Ouidad Styling Mist before I blow dry and add just a touch afterward (too much and it starts to weigh down my fine hair). I do find that aerosol hairsprays are lighter and less likely to weight my hair down -- but this doesn't leave my hair sticky like those do, so I'm trying to get used to it.

PlayCurl works okay, but I didn't like it. It leaves a sticky residue on my hands after applying. Not cool.

I like to use Carol's Daughter Hair Milk. It controls frizzies, defines the curl/wave, and it REALLY MOISTURIZES. And it smells clean, too.

Hairspray. I have had good results with hairspray that is marketed as "weightless," usually medium hold. Use brand you like the smell of.

Hey I did find that it does give a light hold. Your hair will not be crunchy, and if you run your hands through it your curls will still be there unaltered. Give it a try you my like it.

Question
Dry-hair application?
Can this be applied to dry hair to "reset" curls between wash/conditioning? I love a product I can use to style my hair for an evening look, without having to shower twice in a day.

I recommend revitalizing curls in between washes with Ouidad Botanical Spray. You may not even need to use the foam again because the spray kind of reactivates the product that's still in your hair way better than regular water can.
