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.

Smells great but I hate crunchy hair!
Sampled

When I first got it I was excited! Then I used it...I have to say I was anxious because it was a "cream gel". I have very fine, yet thick curly hair. My scalp is oily, but my hair tends to get really dry. I like that it did leave my hair light and not heavy but I just can't stand for my hair to feel "crunchy"!!! Probably great for some, but it just isn't for me. I do feel confident that I'll find something good in my next box! Thanks Ladies!

Love this brand but...
Sampled

I have another hair product by this brand and love it so I was super excited to try this. However I was disappointed. It was way too heavy on my hair and almost felt like heavy oil in my hair. I do have fine curly hair so maybe it would work for someone else but not for me

left my hair frizzy

I did everything as directed and this product left my hair incredibly frizzy. I won't be able to use it alone.

Curl cream

I was so excited to try this product! Unfortunately it did not work for me with my super fine, straight hair. I followed the technique on the label but it just left my hair a little crunchy.

Like the concept, not the inhredients
Sampled

I was recently at my favorite salon getting my hair cut when my stylist suggested I should let my natural curl have reign for a while and then she whipped out a tube of what I thought was gel but turned out to be a gel-cream hybrid. If I were not so sensitive to the dimethicone, I would have loved it. And I would have loved this hybrid from Ouidad. It does help define my curls but also leaves them soft to the touch and avoids the inevitable frizz of contrary curly hair. If you aren't sensitive like I am, then give this a go.

Weighed down my hair
Sampled

I have naturally curly hair, and I applied this per the instructions. It made it feel sticky, heavy, and over all looked oily. Not a fan.

Sticky
Sampled

I was super excited to try this. I love Ouidad products for my curly hair and it smelled amazing. I followed all the instructions and let air dry. It took my hair hours to dry. Left it feeling thick, sticky and not curly at all. In fact, I feel like it took away from my natural curl. I will not be purchasing sadly
