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.:mrgreen:

    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.
    2/c Coarse hair med. density.
    Highly porous. Color over grey.
    I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....

    Co-wash: DevaCurl NoPoo
    Rinse-out: GVP Conditioning Balm
    Leave-in: KCKT, Suave Naturals Coconut, or my rinse-out!
    Gel: SS FHG (my new HG!!)... I also like HESMU, AIF, CJ CQ, BRHG, CJ PP and the occasional LALSG

    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.
    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!
