It’s a Review: Ouidad Curl Co-Wash Conditioner


I was contacted my a representative of Ouidad, and was given the opportunity to try out their new Curl Co-Wash Conditioner (Sulfate, Silicone & Paraben Free).

This product is described as being, a rich low-lathering, sulfate-free cleansing conditioner that leaves the hair moisturized , soft and frizz-free while gently clearing hair of buildup.  It is for all hair types and textures.

It contains Black Cumin Seed Oil, Jamaican Black Oil, Rosemary & Sage Oils. Which these oils are great for conditioning and refreshing the hair and also delivers great shine.

I co-washed my hair in six sections. I allowed it to sit in my hair for about 5 mins or so, then detangled with my double detangler (which is also by Ouidad) , and rinsed my hair out. **NOTE: The double detangler was purchased by myself over a year ago. I have spoken on it before in the past and you guys know I LOVE that comb

I absolutely enjoyed this co-wash conditioner. It was fairly easy to detangle, which was a  pleasant surprise. Once I rinsed it out, my hair felt soft and have a nice sheen to it. The lather was less than a shampoo, but more than a regular conditioner, I would say it is a happy medium, especially if you are more into co-washing (and not into shampooing). I feel like my hair and scalp were both clean but was not stripped.

List of Ingredients: Aqua (Water/Eau), Sodium Lauroamphoacetate, Cetearyl Alcohol, Behentrimonium Chloride, Hydroxypropyl Starch Phosphate, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Nigella Sativa Seed Oil, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Oil, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Oil, Fragrance/Parfum, Citric Acid, Hydroxyisohexyl 3-Cyclohexene Carboxaldehyde, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Limonene, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone

Pros:

  • Smells great
  • Has a pump
  • Very Thick & Creamy
  • Great Slip
  • Leaves my hair with a nice sheen

Cons:

  • The Price. Even though I personally don’t mind the price, I know a lot of people aren’t looking to spend that much. There are other products I have used to co wash with that give me similar results. But that low-lather in a conditioner is very rare to come by. If you are someone who co-washes daily, it may not be economical option.

Other than the price I actually really like This product. I will definitely continue to use it here and there until it is done, however I don’t think I will be repurchasing it, strictly because of the price. But if I do ever want to splurge, this is something DEFINITELY worth splurging for.

Hair Care Regimen Part One (Shampooing, Conditioning and Deep Conditioning)


Ok Ok. I am finally getting around to this!! My apologies! I know you guys have been asking me questions about my hair care regimen for a while so here it is. This is installment one [out of four] of my hair care regimen series. The reason I broke it out is b/c I didn’t want the video to be too long. Plus, for my blog post if it was going to be long I wanted it to be long because of detail, not because I am just listing a bunch of products in one post. So this first installment is going to focus on Shampoo, Conditioner and Deep Conditioner.

Just to start off with the “technique”. So it kind of goes hot oil one week, deep condition the next week and just back and forth; that way every week I am doing a treatment. Note: Hot Oil Treatment will be touched on in a later post.
