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.

(8.5 oz.)

    I use this product every other day to wash my hair. It is a good, gentle cleanser for girls with curls who do not want to go straight. It is a bit expensive but a good product.

    Comments about Ouidad Curl Recovery Ultra Nourishing Cleansing Oil:

    I love this hair product. Your hair will soft afterwards, and easy to detangle. I have naturally curly, coarse, and fine hair. I know, imagine that. The shampoo can last you a year and half, if you know how to use it properly, a little goes a long way. Your curls will be poppin afterwards. It is very expensive.

      Comments about Ouidad Curl Recovery Ultra Nourishing Cleansing Oil:

      I have very curly shoulder length hair, and used this with Ouidad's Curl Recovery Whipped Curls Daily Conditioner & Styling Primer. I have to wash my hair every other day or it looks very greasy and used the majority of the bottle before reviewing. That said, don't be thrown off by the "oil" in the title. Nothing oily at all when washing with this cleanser! It foams like regular shampoo and cleans very nicely. I have noticed my scalp dryness improving immensely without increasing the oiliness of my hair. How I get a dry scalp with oily hair I'll never know...but the flakes on my shoulders have gone and my hair doesn't feel like a grease spot or straw. I'm glad I gave it a try and may buy again but I'm still searching for that perfect combo for awesome formed curls.

        Comments about Ouidad Curl Recovery Ultra Nourishing Cleansing Oil:

        Honestly, Ouidad is the best for my curls, I have think curls that are damaged because of heat and that's just the nature of my curls but ever since I decided to go natural I have used many products for curly hair (a lot) and none of them work best like the Ouidad product, I know it's pricey but trust me you'll end up spending less money because if you buy other products they won't work and you'll have to buy more, might as well invest in your curls on products that are worth while, and that comes from a person who doesn't like to spend much of beauty!!

                I have thick, somewhat course hair with a combination of wavy and classic curls. I've used Ouidad products for years, and love this shampoo-cleansing oil. (new product for me)

                    This Ouidad small bottle is difficult to squeeze out of the bottle; however, it is light and smells very good. I am not sure about its ability to control my frizzy hair - it appears to lose its hold as the day progresses.
