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.

Kind of a letdown
Sampled

I was really excited to get this sample in my box, and it was a letdown. I have super thick, wavy/curly hair and this did basically nothing for it. It didn't hold the curl, made most of my hair look frizzy, and it was so sticky when it was in my hair. All day I looked like I'd just rolled out of bed on a meh hair day.

Another gel
Sampled

I felt this was just another hair gel, I didn't find it did anything but maybe I didn't use it well- truly could be operator error

not strong enough for my curly hair
Sampled

This might be good enough for hair that just needs a little bit of control, but I have frizzy and curly hair and this product didn't do much to control that.

Terrible
Sampled

This brand I love but this left white tacky like balls in my hair. It curled it nicely but it looked as if I had terrible dandruff

Smells Nice, but....
Sampled

I have long naturally curly hair. The product smelled nice, but it didn't do my hair any other favors. It may work great for shorter hair.

Feels cheap
Sampled

I was very excited about trying this product as it would be perfect for my hair. However I was immediately let down by the stickiness and smell. Despite that, I put it in my hair figuring maybe it would feel differently in my hair and I could use spray or something if the plasticky smell was powerful after application. Well, I applied it exactly as described and as soon as I put it on and throughout the day it felt like a $3 cvs brand blue or green hair gel we all know, not what I was aiming for. I was happy to shower it out and will not be using it again.

Disappointing
Sampled

I was really excited to see this in my box but found it was not effective at all. It goes from creamy to sticky causing hair to stick to fingers and become frizzy. It was not moisturizing and did not help shape my curls at all. I really wanted to like it, but it was terrible.
