Most Helpful Positive Review Wonderful!
I am African American with my hair in it's natural state. my hair is not damaged but I used this product to help get my hair as healthy as possible which will help define my best curl pattern. I learned of the product through youtube video Mo Knows Hair in which she recommends it. I use it twice per month and it is really wonderful, leave my hair very soft & moisturized and helps pop the curls!!!!

Left the ends of my hair feeling very dry and brittle, this is usually a sign of too much protein will be returning to the store.

I've used this product twice since my purchase. Prior to the first use, I experienced severe breakage/shedding. After the first use, it decreased immensely. My second use was a couple days ago. I had my hairdresser use it instead of the salon brand. She was very complimentary of it and stated my tresses seemed to take very well to it. Since that use, I've not had any shedding. This product was recommended by my daughter who has been using it for over 4 years. Despite this, I was skeptical since we have different hair types. So far, so good!
Jean from Clark
I have dry, frizzy 3b hair type and have trouble with moisture and definition. It only took one use and I saw a positive difference in my curl definition and texture--my hair looked very pretty and it was soft. however, I felt a burning sensation but my skin wasn't red. I rinsed it with cool water as I felt it would have really burned if I used warm/hot water.

I loved this product not only did it smell good but my hair looked amazing and hydrated...I've been having some hydration issues with my curls lately and with my hair looking limp and this was just what I needed
Would not recommend for colored hair
Chelsey from Kentucky
I have very color processed hair, like bubble gum neon pink currently. I used this once and not only did it burn my scalp, it made my hair more dry. My curls were frizzy and parched after. I did see that others said it burned as well, so maybe there's an ingredient that my skin doesn't like. I waited it out because I heard awesome things but I was very disappointed.
Sel from NC
I've already used this ONCE and can tell a huge difference in my hair. Kept it in for 15 minutes after shampoo and conditioner and my hair has never felt so clean and lightweight and bouncy. Also it smells SO GOOD! I opened it up and used the product that came off on the lid so a little goes a completely long way and I foresee this lasting for at least 6 months if used once a week.
Thee absolute best
Beauty_passionate from Florida
I absolutely love this this product. I have fine, dry, curly hair and itchy scalp. This product keeps my locks moisturized and it doesn't weigh my hair down (happens a lot with moisturizing products) I do feel some heat but nothing too overwhelming. I keep mine on overnight (do with every deep conditioner/hair mask) and it rinses off very well in the morning. If you've been wanting to give this a try, GO FOR IT!!! You won't regret it.
Purchased many times
Shelby from Oklahoma
I've purchased many times. I have fine straight hair but really enjoy the performance of this product. It doesn't weigh my hair down and really delivers when it comes to softness. I am aware it's for curls, but it works great for my hair, so any girls with fine straight hair this may also deliver great results for you. Really glad Ulta sells it now.
SuziQ from Seattle Washington
I have naturally curly/wavy hair and it tends to frizz, tangle and dry out easily with products. This is the best deep conditioner for my hair. You have to be very careful because as it "melts" into your hair in the shower it can make your forehead burn (I have sensitive skin) and your scalp. I love the smell. It goes on easily and is easy to rinse off too.
This is Gold for hair
Josie from Michigan
I am a cosmetologist and I use this and Olaplex on my clients hair; as well as my hair. This product I have used on both naturally curly and straight hair and it works wonders for both types of hair. I get my product at Salon Centric for half the price and am so thankful it is sold there. Leaves hair soft and silky

I bought this after reading all the reviews here. I have fine, 2b/2c/3a curl pattern that has been color-treated. My curls were dry, limp and just not doing so hot after the last color treatment. I started using this and noticed am an immediate improvement. I have sensitive skin and did not experience any burning. I use it every other week for ten min while I'm in the shower. I have blonde hair with lavender ends. It is safe for color-treated hair, makes your hair super soft andddd will bring back your curls. Highly recommend.
I absolutely Love Love Love This Mask!
Jan from Phoenix AZ
This is a miracle in a jar for me
My hair is fine and kinky curly
I dreaded wash day for my hair because of my tangles and matting.
This melt down mask was beyond awesome on my hair I had zero tangles or matting washing Conditioning and styling my hair. I used the whole line of products on my hair and the experience and results were fantastic. I'm a new fan of Ouidad!!!
Soft & Silky Curls!!
heartfulmom from Atlanta, GA
Slog through getting the thick goo onto your hair and combing it through because in the end it will be so worth it! I've been trying all the curly girl post-shower products out there and they all leave my hair feeling like dried-out straw - until this Ouidad Hair Mask!! I kept it on for 1 1/2 hours and my hair emerged soooo silky, hydrated and smooth!! Hasn't felt this nourished in a long time. I'm no longer having a meltdown over my dry, brittle curls now that I have Ouidad's Meltdown Mask:)
Another must-have product
EM on LI from Long Island NY
Extremely moisturizing treatment, I apply after shampooing, and leave in for awhile. Rinse out with tepid water. I follow up with Moisture Lock and Advanced Gel. Curls look amazing, and hair is extremely soft. Only drawback is the price, but it is worth it to get the desired effects.
I would purchase again!

I ordered this online and when I tried it in the shower, it burned my scalp! It feels like burning on my head. I've used it a couple times actually, but it's quite unbearable. I am allergic to guava so I'm wondering if the weird melon is a family member that kind of fruit. Even if it touched the back of neck, my shoulders, or forehead it was so feeling like burning. I can't even bear to leave it a couple minutes, let alone 10-15 minutes like the direction suggest! A same too because it was so expensive for a deep conditioner that I cannot use now.
Beware if you have sensitive skin
Ellie from Florida
I used this product after getting highlights blowing drying my hair. I wanted to restore the moisture back in my hair. The ending result was amazing! My curls bounced back and look defined. The bad thing is that it felt too hot and started to itch and burn. It burned and itched anywhere the product touched. I'd be hesitant to use it again.
Curls on point
AndreaIsabel from Arkansas
My curls look so healthy and bouncy after using this mask! It is so worth it's price
It's the best product to improve my dry, curly hair.
Gail from CT
I use it daily.
Toya from Virginia
Product is very potent! You do not have to use a large amount at once. There is a burning sensation, but that tells me the product is working.
Would Purchase it Again
Charmaine from Seattle, WA
Applied to my hair in the shower after a good wash. Curls were popping. I did follow-up with the triple conditioner to put moisture but the mask strengthened my hair.
I buy this all the time!

Brings life back to my dry, fine, kinky hair my curls pop.
Holy Grail Status
Naturelle D from NE, PA
My hair was shedding horribly, so tangled, had no snapback in my curls. I finally gave this a try. It's a miracle in a jar. Shedding has drastically lessoned. My hair looks and feels so much better.
I went for a trim and ended up with heat damage. I am still using this and seeing some repair. The reality is heat damage is done. But I still need moisture/protein balance. This conditioner isn't going anywhere.
Yes, it warms up. When the treatment is done, the warming stops. It's noticable but not alarming.
Naturally_Nai from Reading, PA
I was on the fence about using their products because I did try the curl immersion deep conditioner and it dried out my hair. But I've been seeing a lot of YouTubers use this deep conditioner and I was itching to try it too. So I purchased the 2 Fl oz container and I fell in love. There is this warm, tingling sensation that it gives off which is a bonus. Has a soapy, greasy feel but leaves the hair soft, smooth and elongated. It is a must try. I wouldn't use it every week but its good for once a month since it helps with elasticity.
It made my scalp burn and itch
Kenzie from Canada
I put in in my hair and it made my head burn badly and every part of my skin it touched. I read in other reviews not to use in colour treated hair but that was after I had put it in and washed it out in minutes. There is no warning about hair type on the product or who should not use it. I haven't taken my hair out of the towel but I'm terrified to see if it burned or ruined it like it did to other in this review section.
Viv from Alexandria, LA
I for a sample a while back for purchasing Ouidad Shampoo and Conditioner. To my surprise it was far better than I expected. It left my hair incredibly moisturized, supple, without weighing it down (I have thin but big curls).
I used to be old schooled and make a diy hair masque of an egg, coconut or olive oil, and an avocado. This mask helped my dry hair with split ends so much but would always leave such a mess.
This masque achieved the same results and it's all out together and smells WAY better.
