Ask a Question
Ultra Nourishing Cleansing Oil is a foaming, water-activated cleanser with an advanced oil base that gently removes dirt and build-up while restoring essential moisture. Ouidad's proprietary CR-4 Repair Complex - including nutrient-rich Mafura Butter and Kalahari Melon Seed Oil - envelopes the hair shaft with a cushion-like coating of concentrated fatty acids that are vital to rebuilding, nourishing and protecting hair in need of repair. Silk proteins and coconut oils bind to the cuticle to sustain hydration and resist damage while enhancing body and shine.
Using your fingertips, gently massage through wet hair and scalp. Rinse with warm water and follow with Curl Recovery Whipped Curls Daily Conditioner & Styling Primer.

    Comments about Ouidad Curl Recovery Ultra Nourishing Cleansing Oil:

    This product is wonderful for restoring curls by restoring the natural oil loss caused by heat products and chemical processing. It's light, not greasy and thoroughly cleans while adding back the natural oils curls need in order to feel bouncy.

                Comments about Ouidad Curl Recovery Ultra Nourishing Cleansing Oil:

                I've only had this cleanser for a week, but so far I'm liking it very much. It effectively cleans my medium length hair, without drying it out or weighing it down. On a daily basis, I use about a quarter-sized amount, work it with some water between my palms into a lather before massaging it throughout my wet hair. After rinsing, my hair feels silky. I squeeze out the excess moisture, then use the VitalCurl Balancing Rinse Conditioner from the Vitacurl Classic Curls trial kit, leave it in while I finish my shower, then rinse again. I towel dry my hair, carefully comb it with a wide tooth shower comb and style it with VitalCurl Tress Effects Styling Gel, also from the trial kit (I sort of use the Ouidad rake & shake method to style). I let my colored, naturally curly hair air dry. My hair feels soft and best of all, it is not frizzy.

                        I have an oily scalp at times, but dry ends. Will this weigh down my roots and make me look greesy?

                          A:

                          Just like hair's natural oils, Ultra-Nourishing Cleansing Oil hydrates even the most dry, fragile, damaged curls without any heaviness or greasiness. An advanced oil base gently removes dirt and build-up, while nutrient-rich CR-4 Repair™ complex injects healing moisture into curls. It will not way the hair down with unwanted oiliness.

                      • Q:

                        My hair is very flexible- wavy but can easily be styled curlier- meaning when I put moose in it and twist it my hair holds the curl, so if I'm trying to bring out the curls in my hair would this be useful?
