Shine-enhancing botanicals, plant-derived proteins, and penetrating humectants mean your hair will feel as good as it looks.

A silicone-free curl defining serum that softens and strengthens hair while offering strong hold and curl activation.

Fine to thick ‘wavys’ and ‘curlys’ who seek curl plumping, lift, and strong hold.

Quinoa Protein is a gluten-free source of eight essential acids that offer superior repair, hydration, and shine for the hair. Oat Protein plays a supporting role by penetrating the hair to deliver reduced breakage and enhanced softness. Click for a full list of ingredients.

Cucumber Mint.

Working in sections, rake a dollop of serum through wet hair from roots to tips. The hold is deceptively strong, so if you’re new to this product, be conservative on your first application. To accentuate vertical lift, flip hair upside down and smooth product downwards, working from the crown to the ends of your hair. Diffuse dry for best results.

Feel like playing it straight? Looser textures can apply a small amount of Hold Up to damp hair for a voluminous, frizz-free blowout.

  1. Excellent in Humidity!

    Posted by Unknown on 3rd Aug 2020

    I used Oasis + Hold Up Serum and no frizz in a dew point of 77! I've also used Pop Life + Hold Up Serum and wonderful results as well. Amazing products!

  2. Love this

    Posted by Unknown on 30th Jul 2020

    Makes a light cast that holds up to humidity. Perfect for my fine frizzy hair.

  3. I'm in love

    Posted by Emily on 15th Jun 2020

    I cannot recommend this product enough. I tried the mini first and instantly fell in love. For reference I have 2A-2C wavy hair that is pretty fine. Despite all of the things that say wavy hair needs a "light hold" mine becomes so frizzy and less defined without a cast and harder hold product. This serum has been great because it's so versatile. It gives me the hold I want depending on application and amount of product. I can use it as a single styler or over a mousse. I will be purchasing again.

    I love this defining serum! My curls have never been juicier!

  5. Great for curls

    Posted by Unknown on 24th Feb 2020

    I started using this to bring the life back to my curls. My hair started to become wavy and even straight. I use this with just gel and combined they do amazing things. I get comments on how great my curls look all the time now. Even the next day my curls still look fresh.

  6. One and Done

    Posted by amy Thornton on 2nd Dec 2019

    I am in love! I tried this first with the leave in and my hair looked great. The next wash, I styled with the serum alone. My hair looked fabulous! You only need a nickel size amount for each section. I used it in the shower on wet hair.

  7. Amazing Hold

    Posted by Wendy W on 16th Oct 2019

    Love this serum! Gives me amazing hold and definition and smells wonderful! I use Pop life on top of it on dripping wet hair. Plop for 15-20 min and then use Sweet Poof.
    I has been great for my wavy to curly fine hair.

  8. perfectly definef curls

    Posted by Jackie Camilleri on 20th Sep 2019

    I just used it for the first time yesterday I bought the leave-in in the Oasis along with the holdup and I loved it so much I'm going to go back and by the biggest size they have for reference I have 3B 3C curls

  9. Amazing

    Posted by Simma on 20th Sep 2019

    Natural and strong. A terrific product

  10. amazing hold

    Posted by Joanne Salegna on 21st Aug 2019

    Hold Up serum has amazing hold and creates a great cast after diffusing. Once my hair is completely dry, I scrunch out the cast and I’m left with beautiful curls with amazing hold. I use about 3 quarter size amounts for my entire head which is raked in.

    Superior hold and frizz control.
