Sometimes it works great

As others have said sometimes it’s great and sometimes it looks a little sticky, hard to find the right balance but I keep trying Ouidad because they are the best products for curly girls Lori

It took a while for me to find a formula that works for this product. My hairstylist used it right after I got it cut, and my curls looked great that day, but when I used it myself they appeared greasy. I found that dividing my hair the way of the way they detail didn't work for me personally, so I divided it differently and it works for me. My advice: find the sweet spot so your curls look great, but not greasy or matted. I also wrap my hair after using this cream, which adds definition. Hope

This product makes my hair healthier looking and defines the curls instead of leaving them just rumpled and fly away looking Karen A

I tried a sample of this product and was surprised how well it worked on my curly hair. My hair was quite wet when I used the cream and dried in perfect curls. My hair looked much thicker than it normally looks. I loved the product and bought a couple of full size tubes. Barbara

Ouidad has done it again! As a devotee of the brand for decades, they have now given me a solution to hydrating my 68 year old curls! Vitalcurl gives my medium length loose curls definition and shine. I layer it on over Moisture Lock Conditioner and Bingo! smooth waves and natural curls. Carolyn

Flakes on my hair

I have tried this a couple times now in sample form and it has flaked every time. I don't know if it is because I mix it with gel or what. The curl cream alone does not hold my curls as I have really long, thick hair and I need a little something extra. However, the new Feather Light does not flake and I love that. Julie

Great!

I like this stuff for extra definition in my curls. The only issue I have with it is if I use too much, it looks matted and sticky. Tara

Details

Details

Classic curls crave both hydration and hold-so why not style them with a product that does both? Our VitalCurl™ Define & Shine Styling Gel-Cream is the ultimate hybrid styler: one part moisturizing cream, one part curl-defining gel.


This lightweight gel-cream creates the ideal conditions for uniform, frizz-free curl definition. With vitamins, natural proteins, and botanicals, it nourishes curls, enhances texture, and creates long-lasting hold for soft spirals that are never stiff or sticky. It's the best of both worlds for classic curls.

How To Use

How To Use

Apply using Ouidad's Rake & Shake technique. Divide damp hair into sections. Spread a nickel-size dollop through each section. Begin at the nape of the neck, raking fingers through under-sections. When finished, hold the ends of hair in each section and shake to create curls. Let hair air-dry or blow-dry with a diffuser.
