              Comments about Ouidad Clear & Gentle Essential Daily Shampoo:

              I really like this shampoo especially over other shampoos I've purchased for curly hair which tended to be greasy and weigh my hair down versus giving it a nice bouncy and healthy curl. This shampoo combined with the conditioner cleanses well, leaves my hair feeling soft and keeps my curls bouncy.

              Comments about Ouidad Clear & Gentle Essential Daily Shampoo:

              I have super-sensitive skin, and have trouble finding hair products that don't make me itchy, or worse, give me open, oozing sores on my scalp. When my go-to product for curly hair was discontinued, I wandered around Ulta for a good half hour, reading labels and trying to guess which products wouldn't cause a bad reaction. One of the (curly-haired!) employees recommended that I try the Ouidad travel size set for classic curls, which included this shampoo, conditioner, a gel, a towel/turban, and a comb. Within a week, my itchy scalp had cleared up, my curls were no longer frizzy, and several people had commented on how shiny my hair was. I am now a believer! Just wish it wasn't so darned expensive!

                Does this have parabans, sulfates, or silicones?

                  A:

                  The clear and gentle shampoo is safe for color treated hair but it is not sulfate free. We have Silicate which is water soluble and it's the safer kind .We don't use any heavy waxes or silicones that would normally weight the curl down.This product is paraben free.
