Find the Best Styler for Your Curls
Are you a fan of gels, or do your curls prefer cream stylers? What’s your go-to hold level – soft and natural, or perfectly defined? If you’re on the fence when it comes to choosing the best product to tame frizz, check out this guide featuring advice from our curl expert stylists.
“I suggest using a cream if you want more of that soft, second-day hold,” says Jason Hallman, Senior Stylist at Ouidad’s New York flagship salon. “Use a gel if you want perfected, polished curls.”
If you prefer soft curls, or have dry hair that craves moisture, Featherlight Styling Cream is for you. “I suggest using it on damp hair, not soaking wet hair,” Hallman says. Its natural oils and humectants help to nourish and moisturize curls.
For a smoother, more polished look that still allows your curls to move, choose a flexible-hold gel like our Advanced Climate Control® Heat & Humidity Gel. “I like to use this product on my clients who want more longevity from their hairstyle,” says New York flagship stylist Jessica O’Brien.
If your curls need more structure, or you live in a high-humidity climate, try our Heat & Humidity Gel – Stronger Hold formula. The additional hold helps define uneven curl patterns with more consistency from roots to ends.
