New this summer at Sephora- The Ouidad line of curl enhancing products, specifically suited for curly hair types. The line claims to “focus on the building blocks of healthy hair, not on the aesthetic, short-term effects.” This is what first caught my eye because I believe too many of us are focused on making our hair look great right now and aren’t concerned enough about what the long term effects are going to be.
The creators of Ouidad products believe that curly hair needs body and bounce and have opted not to use waxes, silicones, and heavy oils in their products that tend to weigh the hair down.
Take a look at a few of the products in the line. Has anyone tried any of the Ouidad products yet? If so, share your experience! I haven't yet tried any products by these self proclaimed "Curl Experts", but my hair is as naturally curly as it gets, also known as nappy! So I'll report back on my experience once I've tried out the line!

12 Minute Deep Treatment Intensive Repair
Deep Treatment Intensive Conditioner by Ouidad feeds and strengthens curls with a combination of essential amino acids, proteins, and effective moisturizers. An essential first step to rebuilding the health and liveliness of curls damaged by processing or harsh conditions, Deep Treatment penetrates through the hair cuticle to nourish the internal structure of your curls, restoring bounce and controlling frizz.
Deep Treatment is the foundation for restoring and maintaining your hair's health and beauty. Due to a curl's tendency to lose nutrients and moisture, frequent deep conditioning is necessary to replenish the mane's strength, allowing each strand to regain its internal weight and body and minimize the tendency to frizz. Used with heat, the mix of proteins and Amino Acids effectively penetrates hair to bond with the cuticle, leaving hair revived and restructured for enhanced performance.
