    Comments about Ouidad Curl Recovery Ultra Nourishing Cleansing Oil:

    Ouidad products never disappoint! I tried several other shampoos and felt my hair was just getting dryer and more brittle. I found this about 2 months ago and I LOVE IT! I wash my curls every other day with this shampoo. It is not oily, greasy or heavy at all and I never have to comb out tangles. Instead of using a rinse out conditioner I use a little Whipped Curls as a leave in conditioner followed by Heat & Humidity Gel. This combination works well for my thin hair in Dallas humidity. It doesn't weigh down my hair or leave my curls too defined; I get maximum fullness/body without the frizz.

      Comments about Ouidad Curl Recovery Ultra Nourishing Cleansing Oil:

      I received a trial size of this and loved it so much that I bought a full bottle. I have fine, permed, medium length hair that tends to frizz. I have an oily scalp and was skeptical that it would be greasy and not sudsy enough for me, but it's not at all greasy and lathers great and leaves my hair soft. When I get out of the shower, I can easily run a comb through my hair without pulling and snagging. I could probably skip conditioner, but I follow this with a leave-in conditioner.

            I love this product. It's a conditioning cleanser, so it's up to me if I use conditioner too. That's a huge time saver, and my hair is still soft. My hair doesn't feel stripped.

            I received a sample of this...Incredible! It left my hair feeling incredibly clean and super soft. I'm really picky about smells and this had a pleasant scent. I ordered a full size bottle before I even finished the sample bottle.

                Comments about Ouidad Curl Recovery Ultra Nourishing Cleansing Oil:

                Despite having an abundance of oily, fine, straight hair I tried this cleansing oil. I also regularly color my hair, so, there's some damage. I always thought I needed to use half a bottle of shampoo that lathered like crazy in order to have clean hair. I did not trust non-lathering shampoos or cleansing oils to properly clean my hair. I'm glad I experimented with this, though. I've been using it for a little over a month and my hair appears to be healthier and shinier. I'm careful to keep it off my roots the best I can as my hair can get pretty oily. I use this every few days to cleanse my hair (it does lather a little but I've since learned that lathering is not indicative of clean hair), concentrating on the mid-shaft and letting it fall through the ends. So far, I've not noticed any issues using this product with colored hair, either. I don't generally use products in my hair so I don't know how it does in regard to removing product or buildup.

                Comments about Ouidad Curl Recovery Ultra Nourishing Cleansing Oil:

                This is a wonderful product for curly-haired girls looking for a daily cleanser that doesn't strip. After using all natural hair products exclusively after doing my big chop, I gave Ouidad's Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel a try. Since my hair is still on the shorter side and I can't pineapple, I like to start fresh every day with a wash and go. I noticed that the gel left a slight residue on my hair that natural products weren't effective at removing, but so loved its results that I was willing to try a different daily cleanser. I tried this and it is fabulous. You can use a very small amount and detangle effortlessly. The cleansing oil lathers beautifully so it makes it super easy to move through your hair and eliminate any tangles. Once you rinse, your hair is clean (not squeaky though), soft and moisturized. Conditioner isn't required for me afterward, but since I effectively moisturize daily by doing a fresh wash and go, I don't know if this would apply for other curlies who go longer in between washings. I've used it daily for over 2 winter months when the indoor air is dry and my hair is happy. My hair is elastic, bouncy, and soft. I love this cleansing oil. The biggest con is the price, but I do think that most people can get away with using a dime to quarter size amount which should help make the bottle last. Great stuff.

                      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.

                    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?
