Ouidad Hair Products Review

I have some great hair products I wanted to tell you about today called came from a company called Ouidad. Here is what they sent me to review:

1. Curl Quencher Moisturizing Shampoo
2. Curl Quencher Moisturizing Conditioner
3. Moisture Lock Leave in Conditioner

They had asked me ahead of time what kind of hair I had so that is how they knew what I needed and what would work best for me. That is why I also copied the video "How to Wash Curly/Wavy Hair". It is so important, I have learned, that you know the right way to shampoo your hair, especially when it is really curly. I used to be very curly and now I am just wavy. I think that is from all the constant blow drying it straight and just wear and tear over time. Don't get me wrong, I am glad the extreme curly is gone and now I just have wavy hair. So much easier to control!
Let's start with the Curl Quencher Shampoo. It has a special formulation of chamomile, corn oil, vitamins and wheat amino acids to help leave your hair shiny and manageable. What it does is target the dryness of your hair with Vitamin A & E while the other Vitamin B5 adds body and shine. Oh, and it is safe for color treated hair because I do have the "gray washed away" from my hair several times a year. So, I know all about which shampoo's can make a mess of my hair and which ones won't. The luxurious lather during the shampoo will leave your hair soft and more manageable to style.

The Curl Quencher Conditioner is safe for color treated, permed, and straightened curls and it's algae extract and wheat amino acids seal in moisture and protect even fragile damaged hair. It will leave your hair soft and moisturized. I actually loved the smell o this conditioner. I do like for my conditioners to have some sort of scent because believe it or not, people do notice how your hair smells. I have caught several people (mostly men) leaning in to smell a woman's hair, so that is just an FYI for all you single girls. On top of that it detangles to make hair more manageable and helps to repair damage from excessive heat styling and chemical processes. And again, I know this because I do use a blow dryer and on occasions I have used a flat iron. So, I am the poster child for just about everything!
Ahh, this one is a "real" keeper. It is a lightweight leave in conditioner that you will absolutely fall in love with! This is the Moisture Lock Leave in Conditioner from Ouidad and one of their better products! They used skincare science to figure out a way create a "moisture foundation" by infusing individual strands with conditioners vital to healthy hair and great looking curls!

Ouidad added Prickly Pear Cactus Extract to draw moisture from the air and seal it in for superior conditioning. The great benefits of antioxidants of Green Tea and Vitamin B5 protect the hair and promote shine. Also Arnica Extract, a healing agent, promotes long-lasting hydration and helps seal the cuticle layer to prevent frizz and encourage healthier hair and scalp. This helped me to be able to cut down some on all that frizz stuff that I kept buying hoping to keep my hair down.

You will love all of these products but if you don't have curly or wavy hair, don't fret, because they have lots more products that it would take me forever to write about so hop on over and see what they have for your type of hair. You will be surprised at all the tools that are within our grasp to have lovely, beautiful hair worthy of a movie star!

I grabbed this small detail off of Ouidad's Personal Story because I felt like you needed to know about their great charity that we as women should support:
In 2002 I was diagnosed with breast cancer, the same disease that took my mother's life. Fortunately, I was treated and made a full recovery, but I vowed to never let recovery be the end of my battle.

On behalf of my company, I invite you to help fund the fight to find a cure for breast cancer by supporting The Breast Cancer Research Foundation® through OUIDAD - Curls For A Cure®. We'll continue to match your donations dollar for dollar towards our goal to donate one million dollars.

Even small donations can do big things; therefore we've created two convenient ways to participate. You can make an outright contribution from one of the "Donation" links on this page, or you can add a donation to your shopping basket during check-out when you're making a purchase.

Either way, I firmly believe that with your help we can beat breast cancer by helping fund the research that creates new treatments and ultimately finds a cure for this devastating disease.

Mary Bearden personally reviewed these products. I did not receive any monetary compensation for my review, just a sample product. All opinions are mine and belong to me solely. My thoughts and opinions may differ from yours. I was not given the product in exchange for a positive review. Most images came from me and my famous cranky camera! I did grab the video from Ouidad's site.

this sounds great, I don't have curly hair, it's always been straight, but in the last few months, since I'm getting a lot of gray, I'm getting a lot of wave in my hair, I've had people to ask me if I have a perm.

love the sound of this product, I have curly hair but cannot seem to keep the curl unless I put product in it. after it dries it looks more wavy than this was interesting to me.

This sounds great!! I have always had troubles keeping my hair curled

I have curly hair and I like it that way (I don't have the patience or desire to straighten it) It's nice to see a product specifically for curly hair and the thought behind it seems to really get to the heart of curly hair and it's issues!

I have wavy hair at least when it is humid. These sound lovely, and I like products that have a nice scent, esp for my hair. I'm glad u have recovered from the cancer.
