Ouidad Launched New Styling Cremes - Define and Shine Curl Quenching Gel-Creme & Hydrafusion Intense Curl Creme.
Hydrafusion is on the left, and Define and Shine is to the right. These are just sample size pre-release bottles, see the actual packaging below.
The Hydrafusion is visibly thicker, and formulated with tighter curls in mind. Showcase ingredient: Milk Thistle, which has been a popular homeopathic remedy for everything from lowering cholesterol, reducing damaging effects of chemotherapy, and lowering cholesterol levels. The Milk Thistle was surely sought after by Ouidad for its high linoleic acid content - an essential fatty acid that promotes healthy and strong hair.
Define and Shine Gel Creme is suited for those with looser curl patterns and whose curls are easily weighed down if too much product it used- s'wavy's, cherubs, silkies, - this might be for you. Showcase ingredient: Hydrolized Silk Protein is lightweight yet superior at retaining moisture, links hair fibers to improve elasticity, and encourages slip and glide - without weighing down curls.
The Curl Girl Says: "I like them both. The Hydrafusion is similar to the Deva Styling Creme, with a slight lengthining effect and a more matte finish than a gel. The Define and Shine is also nice, and lends itself to a soft, beachy look. This is a great addition to a travel bag when you don't have the time or space for multiple products."
