    Comments about Ouidad Clear & Gentle Essential Daily Shampoo:

    I really like this shampoo especially over other shampoos I've purchased for curly hair which tended to be greasy and weigh my hair down versus giving it a nice bouncy and healthy curl. This shampoo combined with the conditioner cleanses well, leaves my hair feeling soft and keeps my curls bouncy.

    Comments about Ouidad Clear & Gentle Essential Daily Shampoo:

    I have super-sensitive skin, and have trouble finding hair products that don't make me itchy, or worse, give me open, oozing sores on my scalp. When my go-to product for curly hair was discontinued, I wandered around Ulta for a good half hour, reading labels and trying to guess which products wouldn't cause a bad reaction. One of the (curly-haired!) employees recommended that I try the Ouidad travel size set for classic curls, which included this shampoo, conditioner, a gel, a towel/turban, and a comb. Within a week, my itchy scalp had cleared up, my curls were no longer frizzy, and several people had commented on how shiny my hair was. I am now a believer! Just wish it wasn't so darned expensive!

      This is the only shampoo that I have found where I can use it on my dry wavy hair and not use a ton of shampoo to get my hair clean.

        Love this product! I am washing my hair daily while on vacation in beautiful but hot and humid Colmbia. It's so gentle and smells great. My hair regime is low maintenance, just wash and go.

            This, along with Ouidad conditioner, and a deep leave-in once a week, has worked well for my daughter during the dry winter months.

            Best Uses

              Comments about Ouidad Clear & Gentle Essential Daily Shampoo:

              This shampoo smelled very similar to Neutrogena (build-up/residue) removal shampoo. I have very curly, thick, dry, course, color-treated hair, and this product did not work for me. It made my hair very dry, brittle, fuzzy. Although it did cleanse my hair & scalp very well, I felt it was too harsh to be used a daily basis. I would not use again or recommend to those with naturally curly hair.

                Comments about Ouidad Clear & Gentle Essential Daily Shampoo:

                I use this 90% of the time, occasionally switching it up with Matrix products. I'm over 40 and my hair is long, thick, somewhat coarse, and naturally wavy with some ringlets. I get a lot of compliments on my hair and when people ask what I use, I'm happy to recommend Ouidad.
