Ask a Question
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.

      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!

      Comments about Ouidad Moisture Lock Leave-In Conditioner:

      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.

          Terrible smell

          By Kimmier

          from San Diego

          Comments about Ouidad Moisture Lock Leave-In Conditioner:

          I had high hopes for this. The smell was terrible! It smells like some type of household cleaner and the smell is so strong that it lasted the entire day. I kept getting wiffs of it...couldn't wait to get home and wash it out. It left my hair feeling very dry. Definitely returning ASAP.

                Comments about Ouidad Moisture Lock Leave-In Conditioner:

                I got this because I was looking for something new to try for my curls. The associate said Ouidad was all the rave and that she'd choose it over all the other products so I figured I'd give it a try. I told her that I like to use conditioners for combing out my hair in the shower and then leave them in for the moisture, but this product seemed to be too thin. I didn't find it to be all that moisturizing either, as my curls were rather dry all day. For the price and size, I think there are other products that are more effective. I wasn't crazy about the smell either.

                      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.

                    I noticed that the second ingredient is alcohol. How can something that is suppose to give moisture to your hair contain alcohol?

                      A:

                      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:

                      Yes, you can apply on dry hair and leave on. We recommend rinsing the same as you would if hair were wet. The same benefits apply no matter if hair is wet or dry!

                      A:

                      It has a green floral fragrance designed to be layered with other Ouidad products, therefore the scent is paired evenly and not overpowering.

                      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.
