Question Does anyone still use Ouidad?

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.

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.

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

She does kinda come across that way in her videos.

I also used to use the whole regime of her products from start to finish. I discovered that there's alot of protein in her products (besides the cones) and my hair ODed on protein and became very strawlike. So I backed off and went completely CG for almost a year. 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.

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!
