    Comments about Ouidad Mongongo Oil:

    I used it as a conditioner on on my dry curly hair and it actually works really well it was the first time that I didn't use any styling products on my hair and the curl actually kept just with the oil i used in the shower and as instructed combed my hair in the shower. The reason why I gave it four stars was because I spritzed it on my younger daughters curly hair thinking it would tame the frizz on 2 day old hair and it did nothing you could still see the frizz hanging high it was just shiny.

        Comments about Ouidad Mongongo Oil:

        My hair is loosely curled & easy to make wavy. I have extremely naturally dry hair & I use this oil to seal in a moisturizing balm on the ends of my hair to mid shaft. It defines my waves nicely & weighs it down in a good way so it isn't flying away. Love!

          Not worth the money (or in this case, the Ulta reward pts)

            Best Uses

              Comments about Ouidad Mongongo Oil:

              The best thing I can say about this product is that I don't think it damaged my hair. But it definitely didn't make any positive contributions. I have very curly hair and tried this product as a leave-in condition, as a refresher, and as a heat protectant. I did not notice any impact in the overall condition of my hair when the product was used as a leave-in. Perhaps my other hair care products are really good and so this did not add value above and beyond, but it certainly did not appear to add to the condition of my hair. The product was completely ineffective as a refresher. It did not reduce frizz or help control or tame my curls. The product was also completely ineffective as a heat protectant. My hair was much dryer and had less moisture when I blow dried it after applying this product than when I let it air dry. I could not tell that it did anything to protect my hair from the heat. Very disappointing performance, especially considering the price point. I used my Ulta Reward points to try this product so at least I'm not out any money, but sad that I don't have those points to spend on something else.

                Product does not control frizz very well. It also makes my hair very drying at end of the day.
