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

      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.

        Did not work for me

        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.

          This product is a MUST for curly girls. I have super thick, shoulder length tight corkscrew curls & moisture loss is a struggle. I use this product as a weekly deep conditioner, letting it stay on my hair for at least 30 min before rinsing it out. If possible use hood steamer or hood dryer on low to help product penetrate thoroughly. Best Mask EVER!

            I read all the reviews raving about this deep conditioning treatment~ and I bought it. I'm definitely in the minority here saying it did not work for my long curly hair, my hair felt coated, was unmanageable and dull. Awful:(
            So dissapointed- the search for a deep conditioning treatment goes on and this went back.

              A little expensive; however, immediate results
              Applied to hair and sat under hair steamer for 15 minutes.
              After second usage I could feel the softness
              Rinsed front hair felt a little crisp so used small amount of moisture Co wash shampoo to soften hair a little and rinsed.

                i have over processed hair from coloring my hair. Is this a safe reconstructive treatment for color treated hair that won't do further damage to my very delicate hair.

                  A:

                  Yes, this treatment mask is especially beneficial to hair that has been previously colored, chemically-treated, heat-styled and over-processed! Its gentle, color-safe formula supplies loads of moisture and repair to dry, damaged hair.
