I used to WAY back in the day. I got a catalog in the mail recently and realized they have a bunch of new products since I last used them, so was curious.

Proud momma to 8!!!
Hair Type: Used to be 3a/b, now 2b/c Wavy/Whurly
Style: cirly pixie, growing out from a buzzcut. Aiming for at least a jaw length bob
Routine: Figuring that out since my hair has changed... so far:
Wash: CJ Daily Fix
LI: CJ Smoothing Lotion, CJ Curl Fix
Curl Enhancer: SS CEJ
Styler: KCCC, CK Coil Jam, SS FHG
Deep Conditioner: CK Curlycue Renew, CK Curl Fix
Color: I use henna to achieve a rich black cherry/deep burgundy
I've tried a few of their products in the last several months. Most were pretty blah, but I ended up really liking Climate Control Gel. I'm modified CG so the occasional use of cones isn't an issue for me.

I got a lot of samples of Ouidad from Sephora. The Climate Control Gel seemed OK - the rest were not great in my opinion, but I am prejudiced against her products because I went to her once and she was incredibly nasty and arrogant (which I've never encountered in another stylist) so I'm not favorably disposed toward any product she makes.

Highly porous. Color over grey.

I can't stand any of her products except the botanical boost as a refresher/protein shot.

But, to be honest I haven't been thrilled with my hair, so I have started using the Ouidad Tress Effects again and I'm pleased. I also mixed it with some of her Climate Control the other day when it was raining out. I think my hair likes her products. I have not tried any of her newest products right now, they just don't fit into my budget, but when I can afford it, I believe I will.
Curls 3a & 3b
Fine but thick shoulder length hair
Still trying to figure out the porosity and if my hair loves or hates protein
Shampoo and Conditioner: L'Oreal Eversleek
Styling Products: Jessicurl RR & CC
Hair color: Nice 'N Easy semi-permanent (box color)
Last haircut was a Devacut, prior to that a Ouidad cut, prior to that an ordinary layered cut.
Picture in my Avatar is from last summer, a bad layered cut growing out, and I had just started using Jessicurl products.
I'm growing my hair out after years of keeping the curls chopped off. I started to grow it after finding a copy of the Girly Girl book at the 2nd hand store. I tried the products and did not like them. They felt too stiff and sticky. I found a local Ouidad stylist and got the cut & product samples. I LOVE THEM! I'm using the Moisture Lock Leave in Conditioned, Climate Control Gel and the Clear Control Pomade. I have never liked my wavy, curly, frizzy combination hair before, but this stuff is like magic!
