    Comments about Ouidad Clear & Gentle Essential Daily Shampoo:

    I have tried many curly hair products, and Ouidad products are far and away the best products out there for curly hair. Unlike DevaCurl products, which always left my hair seeking moisture, Ouidad moisturizes without weighing hair down. If you have been dissatisfied with other curly hair products, try Ouidad! You won't be sorry.

                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.

                    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.
