Ouidad was one of the first lines (and salons) to specialize in products for all types of curly hair. In a series of articles, I will be reviewing a lot of the products in the line. The first products I will be reviewing are the products in the Salon Series by Ouidad line. These are targeted solutions to help promote health hair and scalp and can be used by ALL hair types! The Ouidad.com website says "The Salon Series is a collection of innovative at home treatments utilizing unique naturally-derived ingredients inspired by professional services practiced at the renowned Ouidad Salon in New York City."

Natural actives helps keep scalp clean and inspires healthier hair growth.

What I say: This is one of my Holy Grail products and has been since Ouidad debuted it a few years ago. I have been using it since the beginning of my hair growth journey and I truly think this little gem has helped my hair grow healthy! I use it twice a week and actually put it on my wet scalp before shampoo or co-wash. I gently massage it in and then add shampoo and let it sit there a while. It tingles a little bit which I believe lets me know it is working. My scalp feels clean, it helps remove product build up and I think the bay leaf oil, Bamboo extract plus vitamins E & B5 help encourage healthy hair growth. It can be a bit difficult to remove, but to me it is so worth it! One tube of this will last me more than six months, I use about a quarter each time.
