Good, but not BestClassic CurlsFrizzJanuary 15, 2018I decided to try this after primarily using climate control. It doesn’t hold my curls quite as long but it still does the job. The smell of it was a surprise though - sort of like cinnamon.
NiceClassic CurlsNormal/HealthyDecember 17, 2017Weird smell, not my cup of tea. But it does hold my curls nice! However, I’ll stick to the climate control. :)
climate control or vita curlLoose CurlsDehydration & DamageDecember 17, 2017Much like the other reviewers, I found it could be sticky if you use too much. My hairdresser recommended this product for better curl definition. I can't say if I received better curl definition or not. For me, I'm not finding too much of a difference. However, I am waiting to try in the summer when the humid NY weather kicks in. I feel like this might work better then.
Serious BusinessLoose CurlsFrizzNovember 7, 2017I usually use Climate Control, but sometimes I need some extra hold for those particularly humid Florida days. Doesn't dry out your hair and can control thick, wirey curls.
The only gel I useClassic CurlsDehydration & DamageOctober 30, 2017I have used many gels over the years to tame the beast that is my hair. This is the first one I've used that doesn't dry out my hair. I am used to using large amounts of product to control my hair, but I find with Tress Effects I use a small amount to achieve success. It can be sticky if you use excess, it is not very forgiving in that regard, but overall a good product. I can't use the Climate Control because the fragrance is overwhelming and unpleasant, in general I wish the Ouidad products had less perfume but this one isn't too bad.
Works wellLoose CurlsDehydration & DamageOctober 29, 2017Been using this product for years. Leaves my hair manageable and my curls well defined.
Love, Love, Love it.Loose CurlsDehydration & DamageOctober 13, 2017Been loving this gel for 30+ years. Nothing compares.
Not as good as it used to beClassic CurlsFrizzOctober 10, 2017I've been using Tress Effects for about five years and absolutely loved it...till recently. Apparently they recently changed the formula and it no longer controls my frizz. I used to be able to go 4-5 days between washings, but now after a couple of days I'm getting frizzy little hairs sticking out. Have tried all kinds of frizz remedy products (Mongongo Oil, Frizz and Flyaway Fighter, the new Climate Control) to no avail. So disappointed.
Not bad.Tight CurlsDehydration & DamageSeptember 22, 2017It holds the curls just fine, but it can be sticky upon application. Curls look good.
good productLoose CurlsDehydration & DamageSeptember 17, 2017Tress effects was recommended by the hair stylist and she did get a great curl for me. I found it was a little too heavy when I worked it on my own. I'll be sticking with advanced climate control.

- How To Use
How To Use
Apply using Ouidad's Rake & Shake technique. Divide damp hair into sections. Spread a nickel-size amount of gel through each section, with fingers separated like a rake. To ensure even distribution, 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.

CURL EXPERT TIP
“When styling, make sure the hair is wet from roots to ends to allow for even distribution of product. Proper saturation results in a frizz- free style.”
