Q: I have 3b hair very similar to Julianna Margulies: very tight ringlets. Many times, when my hair is almost dry I put it in a bun to stretch the curls a bit. But I think I’d like to get my hair relaxed into a wavier texture. Is this possible, and how much would it cost?

Ouidad: Yes, it’s possible. First you want to start by conditioning and preparing your hair, because even though it’s a mild procedure, you still want to get your hair in good strong condition beforehand. As for price, it depends on length and volume but to soften a full head of hair at the Ouidad salons, the price starts at $250. You would usually want to back up the treatment with protein deep-conditioning treatment.
