Moisture Lock Leave-In Conditioner

8.5 oz Item 2238659

Ouidad's lightweight moisture treatment for curly hair inspired by skincare science. It creates a "moisture foundation" by infusing individual strands with conditioning proteins vital to healthy hair and great looking curls! Prickly pear cactus extract draws moisture from the air and seals it in for superior conditioning. Antioxidants green tea and vitamin B5 protect hair and promote shine. And arnica extract, a healing agent, promotes long-lasting hydration and helps seal the cuticle layer to prevent frizz and encourage healthier hair and scalp.
Place a dollop in the palm of your hands and rub your hands together. Gently run your hands throughout your hair, spreading the conditioner, and leave the product in your hair. This can be done in the shower without rinsing or once you are out of the shower. Your hair will be instantly detangled and protected with extra moisture so it is ready for styling products to effectively define and manage any curl.

    Comments about Ouidad Moisture Lock Leave-In Conditioner:

    I have very fine curly hair that is dry and easily weighed down. I got this as a sample but didn't try it because I just "knew" I couldn't use a leave-in conditioner. I decided to try it a couple weeks ago and I was so wrong! This is literally the best product I have ever used in my hair. It defines my curls and makes it so all I have to use is a little hairspray to set my style. I can even add more later in the day to redefine my curls. And now I can go 2-3 days between washing. It DOES NOT build up in my hair. Now I can pineapple at night and add just a little more in the morning to bring the curl back to life. Ouidad, please never change the formula!

          I clean my long, curly hair with conditioner only 2-3 times per week. Then I apply this leave-in conditioner and "plop" my hair for about 30 minutes. My curls stay smooth and pretty between cleanings, needing only some water spritzing in the morning. I've used this leave-in conditioner for about 2 years.

              I got a trial size of this as a sample with purchase and the cashier was not kidding when she said I would be absolutely hooked. It's so lightweight so it doesn't weigh down curls and doesn't make my hair greasy one bit. LOVE IT

                  Great conditioner. I don't need to use styling product when using it. I just shampoo, towel dry hair a bit, then apply conditioner; Finger comb, sometimes scrunch and then just air dry. Hair looks great and curls stay. Between shampoos will wet hair and apply conditioner with great results. Photo of hair after 2 days
                  Wake up and go!

                  I did enjoy this product, except the smell was awful. It literally ruined the product for me. It did most of what I would look for in a leave in: it helped hydrate, kept locks in place, it was a cream but not heavy but the SMELL. It lasted all day even people around me noticed. I won't buy again and will probably be exchanging my product very soon.

                        A:

                        You can apply moisture lock first and then a heat protectant like our climate control detangling heat spray. It has a UV filter to shield hair from the sun and is also a great primer before applying heat or stylers.

                        A:

                        The Moisture Lock Leave-In Conditioner has water soluble silicones that help to create a barrier for the curl, sealing the cuticle. By sealing the cuticle we protect the curl from any moisture depletion which leads to dehydration and damage. Water soluble silicones do not build up. It is not paraben free.

                        Hi Carol, the alcohol in our Moisture Lock Leave-In Conditioner is Cetyl Alcohol, which works as An emollient, emulsifier, thickener and carrying agent for other ingredients. Cetly Alcohol is well known to effectively condition and soften hair.

                        A:

                        Moisture Lock Leave-In Conditioner is a leave-in product; it does not replace your rinse-out conditioner. It's great for anyone who needs more moisture than a daily conditioner provides. We recommend using it in conjunction with Curl Quencher Moisturizing Conditioner if restoring moisture is your main haircare concern:

                        Yes, you can certainly "cocktail" the Moisture Lock Leave-In Conditioner with other products, though layering is suggested. We recommend applying Moisture Lock first as directed on the packaging, then layering on styling gel.
