<——— Hi there… meet me!

You may know me from my brief stints as a berry guru for Spa Week Daily, and also as the master of hair removal, but what you may not have known about me is that I have super curly hair, AND that I am in love with each and every ringlet.

As I’m sure many of you with curly hair can understand, attaining the perfect level of curl is a near impossible feat to achieve. Over the years I have tried product after product – searching for something that defines my curls but leaves them feeling light and soft.

With hundreds of dollars spent and years both come and gone, I had yet to find something that got it just right, until I was introduced to the product lines from Spa Week’s Fall 2011 Exclusive Hair Care Sponsor, Ouidad.

I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical at first. Lots of companies claim to have the magic touch for defined curls – what made Ouidad so different?  Still, I was willing to give it a try. After all, any hair care brand with the nickname “The Curl Experts” had to have that name put to the test.

I was tasked with trying two products: Moisture Lock Leave-In Conditioner and Climate Control Heat and Humidity Gel

The first product I tried was the Moisture Lock Leave-In Conditioner. Infused with Prickly Pear Cactus Extract, Green Tea and Vitamin B5, this treatment is supposed to seal the hair cuticle prevent frizz and encourage healthier looking hair.

After washing my hair, I took a dollop of the cream, and spread it evenly through my hair.

Next up was the Climate Control Heat and Humidity Gel. This was the biggie! Controlling frizz and flyaways is one of my main goals, and that is exactly what this product said it would do using a combination of amino acids and Vitamin A.

While my hair was still damp, I took a “nickel-size dollop” as instructed on the back of the bottle and ran it through my hair.

The end result……….

Defined curls with minimal frizz! SCORE! (and they were soft too)

All in all, I was pleasantly surprised at how well the products from Ouidad worked. For once a product actually did something that it said it would do. I am now a firm believer in the slogan “The Curl Experts” because they certainly know what they’re talking about.

Oh, and just in case, you think it won’t work for your type of curls, think again. Erin, my fellow SpaWeeker took the Ouidad challenge too. Check Erin’s usual curly look, and then her before and after shots using Ouidad (she used a diffuser too) —>
