Ouidad's lightweight moisture treatment for curly hair inspired by skincare science. It creates a "moisture foundation" by infusing individual strands with conditioning proteins vital to healthy hair and great looking curls! Prickly pear cactus extract draws moisture from the air and seals it in for superior conditioning. Antioxidants green tea and vitamin B5 protect hair and promote shine. And arnica extract, a healing agent, promotes long-lasting hydration and helps seal the cuticle layer to prevent frizz and encourage healthier hair and scalp.
Place a dollop in the palm of your hands and rub your hands together. Gently run your hands throughout your hair, spreading the conditioner, and leave the product in your hair. This can be done in the shower without rinsing or once you are out of the shower. Your hair will be instantly detangled and protected with extra moisture so it is ready for styling products to effectively define and manage any curl.

    My hair has never looked better!

    By Hannah

    from Texas

    Comments about Ouidad Moisture Lock Leave-In Conditioner:

    My hair is thin and curly. It was lifeless, dull, and dry looking before. Whenever I use this leave-in conditioner after my shower my hair dries into beautiful, healthy looking curls! I will definitely repurchase. It also doesn't weigh down my thin hair or make it look greasy. I would highly recommend!

              Comments about Ouidad Moisture Lock Leave-In Conditioner:

              I have very fine curly hair that is dry and easily weighed down. I got this as a sample but didn't try it because I just "knew" I couldn't use a leave-in conditioner. I decided to try it a couple weeks ago and I was so wrong! This is literally the best product I have ever used in my hair. It defines my curls and makes it so all I have to use is a little hairspray to set my style. I can even add more later in the day to redefine my curls. And now I can go 2-3 days between washing. It DOES NOT build up in my hair. Now I can pineapple at night and add just a little more in the morning to bring the curl back to life. Ouidad, please never change the formula!

                Would I still need to use a heat protectant with this moisture lock? If so, in what order should I apply them?

                • Brand Expert

                  A:

                  You can apply moisture lock first and then a heat protectant like our climate control detangling heat spray. It has a UV filter to shield hair from the sun and is also a great primer before applying heat or stylers.

                • Brand Expert

                  A:

                  The Moisture Lock Leave-In Conditioner has water soluble silicones that help to create a barrier for the curl, sealing the cuticle. By sealing the cuticle we protect the curl from any moisture depletion which leads to dehydration and damage. Water soluble silicones do not build up. It is not paraben free.

              • Q:

                I noticed that the second ingredient is alcohol. How can something that is suppose to give moisture to your hair contain alcohol?

                • Brand Expert

                  A:

                  Hi Carol, the alcohol in our Moisture Lock Leave-In Conditioner is Cetyl Alcohol, which works as An emollient, emulsifier, thickener and carrying agent for other ingredients. Cetly Alcohol is well known to effectively condition and soften hair.

                  Yes, you can apply on dry hair and leave on. We recommend rinsing the same as you would if hair were wet. The same benefits apply no matter if hair is wet or dry!

                  It has a green floral fragrance designed to be layered with other Ouidad products, therefore the scent is paired evenly and not overpowering.

                  A:

                  Moisture Lock Leave-In Conditioner is a leave-in product; it does not replace your rinse-out conditioner. It's great for anyone who needs more moisture than a daily conditioner provides. We recommend using it in conjunction with Curl Quencher Moisturizing Conditioner if restoring moisture is your main haircare concern:
