Alone it doesn't give me enough hold, maybe if I let it air dry, but with a diffuser it doesn't really hold up. It is amazingly soft though, and I think it would work well with a gel with more hold.

The Climate Control® Heat & Humidity Gel would be used in place of any other gels, and helps to prevent frizz as well as sets your curls and waves. This works for all hair types and also helps to repair the hair.

Her Curl Quencher® Moisturizing Styling Gel is more moisturizing so this would be a better choice for dry hair, and her Tress Effects Styling Gel is the lightest weight gel in her line so this is a great choice for fine hair.

When you rake this through your head section by section, gently shaking each section at the ends as you go, you will end up with the defined curls that will not frizz or "pouf"!! Use the styling bill clips to add height, then diffuse upside down until 3/4 dry. Take out clips, and DONT TOUCH!!!! then POUF! BEAUTIFUL CURL!!!

answer 11
curly, wavy hair gets "puffy" cuz with any excess moisture in the air, it causes the cuticle to open and kind of fatten with the moisture (frizz, poof) ... alot of products claim to be "anti-humectant" - meaning they block that moisture from getting into the cuticle by keeping the cuticle closed and smoothed... they don't (i have a graveyard of expensive products that testify to that)... THIS product actually DOES IT - **IF** it's applied correctly (it's important to apply it per Ouidad's instruction - check her website) - which basically explains that it's important to really coat the hair with it in sections to ensure that it's really distributed throughout... don't worry about product build-up or a heavy sticky feel from using alot - her products are all very light weight, but they really GET INTO the hair shaft, and are really effective... i'm STILL trying to get out of my mind the idea that curly/wavy hair must have HEAVY products to be kind of FORCED into submission! hahaha - but her methods and products are not like that - yet really effective.... you can't lose with Sephora's easy no-hassle return policy - try it... :) hope i helped

This product is not heat activated, BUT it does help to get the fullest effect. Try using a diffuser attachment on your hair dryer, this is a MUST for blow drying curly hair. There is a technique to using this product that you can watch on their website that helps. I actually finger curl my hair & diffuse it. This is really great if you don't want to wash your hair everyday. (I wash every 3-4 days.) I have used the ouidad products for 2 years & never got compliments on my hair before, like I do now!

Not heat activated.

Living Proof did not work well for me either. I "think" you can return for store credit without a receipt? I would read about all Ouidad products on the Ouidada website, and then maybe order the ones that you feel might work for you. If they do not work you can return. If the stores start to carry the products, you can ask for a sample first which saves time and monry!!!

i have used this product for several years now and have found many ways to make your hair soft and not crunchy. First, use less product, it took me while to figure out the balance of enough product to do the job but not too much so it is crunchy. Also, once hair is dry put the shine serum or pomade on hair to take away whatever crunch you have. If there is a salon in your area that is Ouidad certified I definitely recommend going because they can help you customize your product use. Also, watch the videos on the Ouidad website and read how to use the products, they work much better and will give you a better result if you know what you re doing.

yes - a little on the cruncy side - but only slightly - it is effective though, and does leave your hair soft with movement... you can tone down the "stiffness" - minimal as it is - with the Clear Control Pomade (check Ouidad's website for instructions on how to apply - you'll get the most out of it, really)... that's what i do, and it leaves my hair softer... i've used SOOOOO many gels - love the definition, HATE the stiffness... this one really is NOT heavy on the stiffness, and the pomade is an added benefit of shine & softness (it's not a typical pomade - it's water-soluable, so it doest just SIT on the hair - but use the pomade sparingly)... hope that helps.

I think that the "rats nest" problem will be solved by this product. I have color treated hair and have had that problem but not with this. I let my hair air-dry and have found that the humidity does not change my hair curl or not during the day. My hair is wavy and not so much curly so, for me, my hair is sometimes straighter than I like. I got a sample that I used before I bought it so I had experience that I liked but with coninueous use my hair seems to be straighter than usual and you might like that if your hair is curlier than mine.

I rarely leave my hair curly so I use this for my straight styles. The trick is you MUST layer your products. A little bit of a everything you need will keep your hair in check. It's good to use a spray, then this gel, then a serum for heat protecting (all for your hair type i.e., fine hair light products for fine hair). My hair is particularily dry and stubborn so I have a couple more in between which is not advised for everyone my hair does not get greasy with a LITTLE product overload so this is what I do. Just try this products if you don't like it you can return it for your money back. I use a dime size amount for my whole head (along with my other products) so this will last me probably a year. Great investment.

I am bi-racial and have coarse, curly hair. This actually worked really well for my hair when I blow dry and flat iron it. Adds a lot of shine and makes it really soft. When I wear my hair curly, it makes a great serum to tame frizz and add shine, but I still need another styling agent to set my style (mousse or whatever you prefer).

This product is awesome on African American hair if you plan on straightening it. I wouldn't recommend leaving it natural with this product. It is not that strong.I use the leave in conditioner after I wash it with the intention of blow drying then straightening. It leaves my hair soft, healthy looking, and super easy to straighten and especially hydrated after all of that heat.

It will not dry out your hair at all. And using the proper amount, it wont leave it hard. You will end up with soft, uniform curl, that wont fall apart. Just dont play with it until its dry. Check out the website or you tube video on how to style your hair.

I don't know if it has anything drying in it --- but I would assume not.
It's the only product I have every used that has NOT dried my hair out/made it crunchy. My hair feels amazingly healthy & soft when I use this product. So soft it's really amazing.

This product does not dry out my hair. I don't think it contains alcohol, which I also try to avoid.

I'm not sure of any drying ingredients, but I use it on my hair all the time and haven't noticed any dryness afterwards. My hair is already pretty dry though, this helps smooth down the little frizzies really well!

Question
Really fine super curly hair? Does it give you hold?
I have very fine 3c curls, and I want something to loosen the curls and tame frizz so that I can wear my hair out. Will this work?

My hair is thick and frizzy and it worked for me, Sephora has a small container that would be excellent for travel for only $9, inexpensive to try it.

Yes it will definitely help weigh your hair down to elongate the curls. the only downside is is that your hair will take forever to dry and you'll look like you have wet hair for most of the day.

Yes! It won't weigh down your curls either. As a result, there is minimal droop by the end of the day.

I'm a 3c with dry hair. Ever since I've been using a good conditioner regularly and using this gel, my hair is looking the best it ever has. You don't need to use too much, just follow the directions on the ouidad website on how to use it. I won't use any other gel!

It hasn't held curls for me, but it defines and tames them to a great degree. It's worth a shot, and the small bottle is affordable (and great for travel!). :)

This should work for you. It's not heavy so it shouldn't weigh down your fine hair or make it look greasy. You could always give the trial/travel size a try & if it works for you then splurge for the larger bottle.

Climate Control definitely tames the frizz and will define the curls you have. For best results, do not touch or handle your hair after your curls are in place. Let hair air dry or use a diffuser. Practice makes perfect. I use a dollop of gel initially to work through whole head, then use additional gel on the sections as I rake and shake the hair out.

If you don't mind the hair being stiff, because it has a LOT of hold. Try buying the travel size so you don't commit to a whole bottle and later regret the purchase.

My hair is very fine and thin but the gel gives me great curl and definition. Might take a lot of product for you if hair is long. I keep my hair cut short.

I have only used this product once, this morning but I love it! like all products after using them for a while I have found that I need to change them up and switch them around. I am not a fan of gels since I hear that they are not great for the hair, but this one really works. I have curly (3c) hair that is often dry and frizzy.

When you use the Ouidad styling technique, you will actually be pulling your hair perfectly straight, then shaking it to allow the curl to do its thing. Watch the videos on the website, and if you can, try to look up a salon in your area. They will help to show you what your hair (and the products) are capable of!!!
