    Comments about Ouidad Curl Recovery Melt-Down Extreme Repair Mask:

    This product is hands down the best thing that ever happened to my hair. It brought my dry brittle thirsy curls back to life honey. I have low porosity hair and it is protien sensitive but my God did this product work miracles. I have never seen my curls so frizz free like ever in the 6 years I have been natural. My curls are seperated and they are defined from the roots to the tip with minor manipulation. Also this product helps repair the damage as well like during one treatment. Beware.....i used this item in the shower and had no idea it had a heating effect and literally had a heart attack because I thought I was having an allergic reaction. Its a lingering heat too which is good for the hair but no good for your skin and hands. Do not use it in the shower please be fully clothed with gloves and a towel during application. Lol. Highly recommend!!!

    Comments about Ouidad Curl Recovery Melt-Down Extreme Repair Mask:

    I use this product on freshly washed hair sometimes or I'll use it on dirty hair spritzed with water and put a shower cap on for about 30-45 minutes and it brought my curls back in the first use and I was soooooo happy!!! This right here is a staple, pricey but a staple. One thing about the product is the smell its not terrible but it smells like avocado and other food which is kinda off putting but this product works great and is worth every penny

        Comments about Ouidad Curl Recovery Melt-Down Extreme Repair Mask:

        I have very thick, curly hair that tends to get dry and frizzy. Since I discovered Ouidad Extreme Repair Mask, I haven't used anything else. It is the best and easy to use. I just apply it after washing my hair with Ouidad shampoo and after working it through my hair, paying special attention to the ends where it gets frizzy. I leave it on through my shower - 10 or 15 minutes - then rinse with cool water and I don't have to worry about frizz. I let my hair air-dry and it is soft tight curls - no frizz!

            I have 4a thick curly hair and noticed that my hair was defined in some places and frizzy in others. After seeing a review on this product I started using it twice a week on wash day. It took about a month, but the frizzy, undefined curls are gone! I use this after I co-wash while still in the shower. It has a warming sensation that feels amazing. I leave on for 10-15 mins then rinse and style my hair as usual. This will ALWAYS be in my must have products for my curly hair.

              Comments about Ouidad Curl Recovery Melt-Down Extreme Repair Mask:

              I have heat damage to my very curly "3c-4a-type" hair, and I tried to correct some of the damage with this product. It did not work for me. The first issue that I noticed was that the skin on my neck was irritated by the warming action of the product during conditioning. I used it twice, but I did not see any improvement in breakage. It's really a shame because of the price.

                    Hi,

                    Melt-Down Extreme Repair Mask will help restore the lipid barrier which is right below the cuticle so over time it can help heat damaged curls.

                • Q:

                  My hair has a lot of body and wave when it is short but I lose it all when I grow my hair out because it is so heavy. Would this product be helpful to keep wave in my hair even when it is long? Or should I look at a different product?
