nice holdLoose CurlsDehydration & DamageMay 23, 2018I was worried at first that this was too heavy for my curls but I think I just needed to use a little less.
Defined frizz free curls!Loose CurlsFrizzMay 21, 2018This product along with the rake and shake technique has been a game changer in my routine! The gel has great hold and works well alone. I end up with fabulous defined and frizz free curls!
Very satisfying!Classic CurlsBrittleness & BreakageMay 15, 2018I really enjoy the texture it gives my hair. Smooths everything out and gives me just the right level of control. And I love the scent of this product!
Great holdClassic CurlsFrizzMay 15, 2018It really defines my curls giving them a great texture & wonderful hold with no frizz. It also smells great and I feel like it goes further than the climate control gel cause the formula is thicker but doesn't leave my hair feeling heavy or stiff but instead soft and shiny.
A little goes a long wayClassic CurlsFrizzMay 7, 2018I use this product after I have used the Climate Control. This seems to help my curls hold their shape better. But, be aware that a little goes a long way!
Great for summer weatherTight CurlsFrizzApril 26, 2018I had used this product years ago, and then stopped and started using the original Climate Control Gel instead. Then, I took a sample of Tress-Effects with me to Turks & Caicos. I used the sample on my trip and LOVED the results! Tress-Effects kept my curls defined, shiny and frizz-free in the Caribbean humidity. And my hair was not crunchy at all! Now I switch off between using Tress-Effects and Moisture-Lock Leave-In, depending on the weather.
Just what I needed!!Kinky CurlsFrizzApril 18, 2018I've always been against using gels in my curls. It usually leaves them sticky and crunchy. The Tress Effects gel rids my curls of all frizz and adds so much moisture!!! I always get the definition I'm looking for when I use Tress Effects.
Not fond of smellTight CurlsFrizzApril 17, 2018I like the advanced climate control better - I’m somewhat sensitive to scent and normally like the smell of Ouidad, but this one has put me off a bit. However, I do like the fact that it has fewer ingredients than many of their other products and I think they’re all curly girl friendly.
One of my new faves!Classic CurlsNormal/HealthyApril 14, 2018I tried this instead of Climate Control and I have to say I really love it! It truly seems to help my curls chunk together and ring better.
Best Gel EVER!!!Classic CurlsFrizzApril 9, 2018I have used this gel for over ten years. I have tried other products and nothing holds my curls the way Tress Effects does. It will keep my curl pattern in place for several days in a row after using it. Will never use another gel.
People are always asking me about my curls and how I get them to look like they do. Tress Effects - period!!

- 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.
