I was interested in this Ouidad Gel Cream because of Madison's curls. 

She has these really pretty curls in the front of her hair, but they get frissy, and just plain wild! Sometimes I can't do anything with them and they're just there, in her face. There's been times she's went to leave with my husband and he said "Go brush you hair" but in truth, I just had.

I'm not much of a gel person, and honestly, don't know much about hair, but I really like this gel cream. It's light, easily goes through the hair, and smells AMAZING!!

If something for your hair doesn't smell good, I don't see the point of pointing it on. Hair products should only smell wonderful and this for sure does. I couldn't help but smell it a few times while I was putting it in her hair. 

I also liked that it's not sticky on your hands. I was a little worried that I'd have a gross feeling on my hands after putting this in her hair but I was happy that I didn't. I was able to run my fingers through her hair with the gel on, and then when it was gone off my hands, I finished with the bow and stuff and the only thing left on my hands was the great scent that I keep mentioning. 

After I put this in her hair, the girls and my husband were off to the library and he mentioned he thought it made her hair look greasy. After they'd been gone for a couple hours and then came back, her hair looked dry and nothing like the "wet" look in the above picture. Her hair was still controlled well by the gel, and looked great! I recommend drying the hair with a blow dryer to help get this look faster and then run a brush through and go about your day. 

According to the Ouidad website, you can purchase a 6 oz bottle of this gel cream for $24. While I think that's a bit high, I also know it works and its a salon product, which is normally a higher price anyway. 

Ouidad also has a salon locator on their site so you can find the nearest place to you to purchase this product and other's they sell. For me, they showed certified salons I can go to, as well as local retailers, which for me is Sephora at our local mall. 

 I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
