Get Fab Curls with Ouidad!

I'm proud to have naturally curly hair.  That said, it can be quite a struggle to find products that tame the type of curls I have.  Without using the right products, I end up with what I like to call, an afro of "wavy/frizz/grossness".  Not really attractive.

It's especially difficult to get my curls under control during summertime.  My hair is not a fan of the humidity that we get in New England.

Since I've tried countless products to tame my mane, I know something good when I see it.

Lately I've been obsessed with Ouidad's Curl Quencher hair line.  Everything I've tried so far has made my hair look gorgeous, without having to spend oodles of time on it.

The Curl Quencher set comes with moisturizing shampoo, conditioner, and a styling gel.  Curly hair looks it's healthiest when it is well moisturized and this set definitely gets the job done. After using the shampoo and conditioner, my hair felt soft, smelled incredible (the scent is boyfriend approved!), and was ready for some styling.  My hair is usually very dried out and is a bit damaged from heat styling and from the sun.  So the fact that one use of the shampoo and conditioner made it soft and manageable is a pretty big deal.

Once my healthy-looking hair was washed, I tried out the styling products.  I started out with the Hydrafusion Intense Curl Cream.  It made my curls look amazing.  It's probably my fave product in the line.  It just seemed to do everything possible for my curls. My hair dried quicker, completely eliminating the need for any heat styling, and my curls looked healthy and moisturized.  

I also tried out the styling gel, which defined my curls even more.  What I like about the styling gel is that unlike most hair gels, it added moisture to my hair.  Usually when I use gel, my hair ends up looking a bit dried up, so this stuff really made my hair look and feel extra healthy.

Another great product is their 12 Minute Deep Treatment.  It's a fab product to use to give hair a boost, and quench thirsty hair.  I've been using it once a week, or so, to keep my hair extra healthy.  The unique thing about this product, is that heat actually helps it work.  To use, completely saturate damp hair with it, cover hair with a shower cap, and blow dry.  Ten let it sit for about twelve minutes.  Before rinsing it out, add conditioner to your hair to seal in the treatment.  This is really a miracle product and is perfect for making fried hair look and feel ultra gorgeous.

All of the Ouidad products I tried are honestly amazing.  They're reasonably priced (most products are under $30), and because the quality is so great, you can get a lot of use out of them.

If you want to try out some of the great products Ouidad has to offer before stocking up on the entire line, try out their Love Your Curls Starter Kit.  It includes the following:

  • 2.5 oz Deep Treatment Conditioner
  • 2.5 oz Climate Control Gel
  • 2.5 oz Clear & Gentle Shampoo
  • 2.5 oz Balancing Rinse Conditioner
  • 2.5 oz Botanical Boost Spray Conditioner
  • Ouidad Wide-Tooth Comb

It's a fab way to try out the line, and everything is travel-sized--perfect for taking with you on the road!  It's also a mere $35.

The verdict? Ouidad is most definitely Sassy Fashionista approved!
