Introducing Ouidad Curl Recovery
Did you know that Ouidad opened the first exclusively curly hair salon in the country back in 1984?"Over twenty-five years ago when I decided to open a salon and develop products specifically for curly and wavy hair everyone from beauty editors to bankers told me I was crazy. I didn't listen for a second. I knew that so many curly-haired people out there needed someone to help them understand their curls and teach them how to care for them." - Ouidad
Twenty five years later Ouidad is still catering to our curls, and we're so excited about their latest line, the Ouidad Curl Recovery Collection. The products are designed to "melt" into our tresses to help repair, strengthen and restore them. We're taking a closer look at the line and what it can do for our curls!
This thick daily conditioner comes in a can (like a mousse) and can be used either to condition or to prime your curls before styling.
Our Type 4 guru Evelyn uses it as a rinse out, detangler, leave in, and even a light styler.
Ultra Nourishing Cleansing Oil
This Cleansing Oil is perfect for dry, damaged textures. It's a foaming, water-activated oil-based cleanser that gently removes dirt and build-up while restoring essential moisture.
Unlike most oils this is designed to be used in the shower as a cleanser, not a leave-in styler or finishing product. The product feels like a silky shampoo with a serum, and can be used to gently remove dirt and to break down unwanted oil on the scalp.
We would describe the lather as almost a shaving cream consistency, and leaves curls and coils soft, springy, and cleansed.
Melt-Down Extreme Repair Mask
The unique melt-down technology in this product pampers hair with a subtle warming sensation. While the Mask melts into the hair, it works to recreate your hair’s depleted lipid barrier, restoring the protective layer and preventing future damage.
We really felt the subtle warming sensation, and it left our curls soft, defined and shiny.
Curl Defining Styling Soufflé
The Curl Defining Styling Souffle is a cream styler that transforms dehydrated & damaged curls into elongated, healthy, head-turning spirals. All of the products in the Curl Recovery line contain Ouidad's CR-4 Repair Complex™ – including nutrient-rich Mafura Butter and Kalahari Melon Seed Oil – envelopes the hair shaft with a cushion-like coating of concentrated fatty acids vital to rebuilding, nourishing and protecting hair.
Natural emollient oils from avocado, radish, coconut and Meadowfoam replenish moisture for superior definition, reduced frizz and healthy shine.
