Recently the kind folks over at Ouidad sent Antoinette and I some new products to sample which were their new Cleansing Oil as well as their Whipped Curl Daily Conditioner and Primer. Antoinette said her piece below in which her curls got it poppin’ and twokkin’. I wanted to share my review as well being as though our hair is different textures therefore the experience was different.
**I only tried the Whipped Curl and have yet to try the Oil Cleanser.**
Whipped Curl Daily Conditioner and Primer = A
I was really intrigued by the idea of “priming your hair for styling”. For people like myself who after washing their hair play a game of russian roulette as to how their curls may look will turn to this primer as a new found savior. I have been avoiding wash and goes in the winter at all costs because of how reckless, wiry and inconsistent my curls have been. I suppose the science behind the primer is that is provides a less reactive canvas with which you can style and work with your hair.
SLIP: Unfortunately, the cream did not yield any slip for my hair as it did for Antoinette. It certainly did go on smoothly and did not cause any strange texture change, clumping or stiffness.
SMELL : The smell was delicious and coconuty without being too overwhelming and “soapy”.
HOLD : Similar to a primer that you would put on your eyes for makeup, the Curl Whip created and solidified my curl pattern so that after adding my leave in conditioner, the curls were set and held. Since my winter blues, I have not had such a successful wash and go in a while! The curl pattern was continuous with no puff and minimal frizz from my roots to my ends! I was pleasantly surprised!
Overall I recommend this product to anyone who is having winter wash and go woes. This primer does the trick for definition and consistency.
