The OmniPotent Duosity Double Whipped Repair Treatment is super popular among the NaturallyCurly editors, but I haven't seen it widely talked about in my social feeds or on YouTube, so I wanted to share a full review and hopefully get the conversation going around this product. It was included in a CurlKit last year and has won a few NaturallyCurly Editors' Choice awards, so if the name sounds familiar that may be why.
I first started using this product after my hair was bleached platinum blonde. Needless to say, it was damaged and in grave need of moisture and protein repair. I was well aware that my damage was self-inflicted and I could not expect any product to undo the damage done by lightening my hair color that drastically, so naturally I had low expectations when OmniPotent first came into my life.
- Keratin, Soy Protein, Vegetable Protein, Rice Protein
- Silk Amino Acids
- Rosemary, Sage, Aloe, & Camellia Leaf Extracts
The proteins and silk amino acids in the formula make this a strengthening treatment, while the glycerin and extracts are humectant ingredients that provide nourishment and moisture. It does not contain any parabens, gluten, salt, sulfates, or silicones.
The packaging is actually a single bottle with two compartments. When you squeeze the tube, product comes out of two spouts.
Aside from the results, the consistency of this product is one of the most standout features of this product. The packaging is actually a single bottle with two compartments. When you squeeze the tube, product comes out of two spouts. Then you mix the two components together in the palm of your hand, and a chemical reaction occurs that creates a new, foam-like texture. Seeing the change happen before your very eyes feels like a science experiment.
I apply this to my hair in the shower after cleansing about twice a month. The directions say it only needs to be left on for 3-5 minutes, so I apply it and then go on with soaping rest of my body and my face, which is just enough time for me to rinse out the treatment. I really appreciate that I dont have to apply this and then get out of the shower for 30 minutes, only to have to take a second shower to rinse it. After this quick treatment I can always feel a marked difference in the elasticity and feel of my hair. It feels strong and moisturized, and I see my curls come back in areas that may have been stretched out and having a hard time curling.
I have a mix of Type 2c/3a waves and curls, but I know NaturallyCurly Editors with a range of curl patterns have tried and loved this product, and we've actually fought over who was going to give it an Editors' Choice award before - the Type 2s or the Type 3cs (incidentally, it won both awards). I would definitely recommend Omnipotent Duosity to other curlies who are dealing with damage and a loss of elasticity, because that is when I saw the greatest impact with this product. Considering the quality of the product I think $14.99 for four ounces is a fair price. You won't find anything else like it, so I'd also recommend this to Product Junkies who love trying something new and different.
