We Put It To The Test
The never-ending battle to get the perfect curls can drive a girl crazy but Ouidad thinks their gel cream can help settle the score.
Name this product:
Ouidad Moisture Lock Define and Shine Curl Styling Gel Cream, (ouidad.com, $24 for 6 fluid ounces)
What the product claims to do:
The styling gel cream promises to keep curls hydrated, defined, soft and shiny all day.
How it worked for me:
This product works with your natural wave versus trying to tighten your curl into more of an unnatural pattern. I have naturally wavy hair rather than a tight curl, and this product did a great job of smoothing my natural wave and keeping it from getting frizzy throughout the day.
How this product looks and feels:
Ouidad Moisture Lock Define and Shine Curl Styling Gel Cream feels more like a cream than a gel. It’s not sticky and glides easily through hair.
What I liked about this product:
This product left my hair soft and touchable but also kept my waves defined and not frizzy throughout the day.
What I would change about this product:
A little goes a long way! It’s easy to use too much, and keep this away from your roots or there’s no hope of second-day hair.
Describe the application process, how often you used the product and for how long:
Simply rub a small amount in your palms and apply to the bottom half of your hair or wherever you’re trying to define your waves.
I would recommend this product for:
Women with naturally wavy, not curly, hair. Ouidad also makes Curl Quencher Hydra Fusion Intense Curl Cream for hair that’s thick, dry or has tight, kinky curls.
