At this point in my natural hair life, much like my friendships, I keep a close circle of products. However, every now and then a new one attempts to infiltrate the circle. When I received Ouidad’s Curl Recovery Meltdown Extreme Repair Mask in the mail I thought why not be open to new friends.
After a proper detangle and shampoo session, I applied a generous amount of the repair mask to each of my already sectioned damp hair. The creamy texture made for a smooth and easy application. I was able to coat my delicate strands with ease and achieve complete coverage with particular concentration on my ends. I allowed it to stay on for about 20 minutes and then thoroughly rinsed. While this is more of a repair treatment product, I used it in lieu of a deep conditioner.
When I received the product I immediately took to the instagram air waves!

The end result was soft, moisturized, refreshed curls and I had more hair on my head than in my bathtub. As with all of my reviews, I used it a minimum of three times before sharing so I can get an accurate assessment of how it works for my hair. I used the repair mask in conjunction with the Ouidad Curl Co-Wash Cleansing Conditioner. If you didn’t get a chance to read my experience with this product, click here. My hair is color treated and is very porous so this treatment had my name written all over it. I’m happy to say, my curls and I have a new friend in Ouidad. Ouidad seems to be launching new products left and right. This is the third of their Curl Recovery selection. Good news for us curlies!
