Ouidad VitaCurl® Define & Shine Styling Gel-Creme

Sure, her shoe collection was cause for envy, but the real thing we admired about Carrie Bradshaw? Her perfectly imperfect, voluminous, and well defined curls. While snagging those Louboutins is another story, touchably soft, shiny, and long-lasting curls are within reach thanks to this lightweight gel-cream. Infused with smoothing soybean extract, volumizing vitamin A and unique curl-forming polymers for long-lasting definition, this ultra-hydrating, non-sticky formula enhances the texture of curls and waves while leaving a luminous finish.

I have naturally curly hair and am always looking for a rich conditioner. This product made my hair crunchy, I was disappointed, and would not use it again.

This is a miss
Sampled

This product did not enhance curls, and left my hair looking dry and frizzy. This product missed the mark big time.

It is an ok product. nothing magical. I really enjoy all the products I get but im starting to resent the hair products. I feel like I can be getting things I can really enjoy and repurchase. starting to rethink Birchbox because they should have the option to choose only make up and not hair products.

not their best
Sampled

I have about 1/2 dozen Ouidad styling products and I like them, but don't love them. I had high hopes for this one, because it felt very light and silky going on, and after scrunching and air drying (never been a fan of their 'rake and shake' technique, it ruins my curls) I had some quite well-defined curls and little frizz. But it left my hair looking very greasy with a definite crunch. I tried to gently run my fingers through my hair to fluff it up but they kept sticking because my hair was so gummy. I've given this several tries and each time I ended up doing a bun, because my hair looked so awful and I couldn't wait to wash it out at the end of the day.

Too crunchy
Sampled

When trying to tame my curls, I need to put styling cream in while my hair is still wet. Unlike others, this product made my hair too crunchy and straw-like.

Meh

Does not do anything for my hair. I don't like gels anyways.

Meh, doesn't seem to do much.

Didn't do anything by itself, made my hair feel gummy when combined with another product. Not a win for me.

I gave very straight hair that refuses to curl and this product didn't work ...

Not impressed
Sampled

I really wasn't impressed with what this did for my hair. My hair was soft but kind of frizzy and wirey, not so curly.
