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.

This product is only moderately effective. There are so many products out there that are much better.

Crunch
Sampled

Let me start by saying I LOVE Ouidad products and have been using their line for years. Thrilled to get to try new products from them! The styling gel/cream sounds so good in theory for my dry but fine curls. While hydrating to my curls like all my beloved Ouidad products,(including my humid weather helper Ouidad climate control gel), my hair dried crunchy and rather oily looking with the directed nickel size amount applied to each section of my just below the shoulder length hair.

I hate this kind of product
Sampled

Unless your curls are manageable to begin with, this type of product never works. I'm always disappointed when I get a sample like this.

Ok..

I'm an African American woman and this doesn't necessarily make my curls more defined. I have used products that work way better than this.

No curls here!
Sampled

I've used and Ouidad products before and they've been okay. So, I was excited to try this. Nope, no curls. This product did not "define" my curls...I feel as though my hair was actually more straight. No thank you.

Didn't get much result
Sampled

I put a dab on when I got it. No curling happened. I'm in love with Jeff Chastain's Parlor curl cream and will stay with that.

Curly Frizz Ball
Sampled

Made my hair unmanageable and frizzy. Was too stiff to let down or fix had to put it back and still looked bad. I like their hair cream better.

Makes great curls, but leaves them too crunchy and dry
Sampled

This product does what it says -- it makes nice round curls that hold their shape -- but it left my hair super crunchy and feeling really dirty. Other products work just as well in my hair without the unwelcome after effects.

SO drying
Sampled

My hair became a pile of straw after using this product. Absolutely horrible. There are so many great, holding, styling creams gels and sprays for curls. This was a blast from the dry, crunchy past. Not good.
