Infused with oil from the mongongo nut and blended with coconut, American palm seed oil, and broccoli seed oil, this fast absorbing liquid gold elixir delivers intense hydration to all curl types as it nourishes, restores natural luster, and protects against damage from heat styling and UV rays. Curls are soft, manageable, frizz-free, and illuminated with healthy shine.
As a Conditioner: Pour a quarter size amount of treatment into hand and add a drop of water. Work into wet hair and leave on for 3-5 minutes. Rinse and style as usual. As a Leave-in: Use fingertips to moisturize scalp and hydrate wet or dry hair. As a Finisher: Warm a few drops between palms, concentrating on ends for frizz control and shine. Perfect for separating tight and kinky curls.

          Comments about Ouidad Mongongo Oil:

          Easy to over use, be careful. I used it and it made my curly, coarse hair soft and shiny, it also helped curb some of the curl so that it is not frizzy and I am able to wear my curly hair.

          I use it to add moisture to my dry hair and to reduce breakage before using a wide toothed comb to brush out my hair in sections. I also use it to add shine.

            Comments about Ouidad Mongongo Oil:

            I used it as a conditioner on on my dry curly hair and it actually works really well it was the first time that I didn't use any styling products on my hair and the curl actually kept just with the oil i used in the shower and as instructed combed my hair in the shower. The reason why I gave it four stars was because I spritzed it on my younger daughters curly hair thinking it would tame the frizz on 2 day old hair and it did nothing you could still see the frizz hanging high it was just shiny.
