I’m loving my Ouidad products!

Forget diamonds – Ouidad products are really a curly girl’s best friend!

I have to admit having curly hair has its challenges, but thanks to my newfound love of Ouidad products, my routine has gotten SO much easier. My hair has the potential to be super voluminous which I absolutely love, but finding the right products that nourish my hair has been a bit of a struggle. 

Thanks to Ouidad, a.k.a. the Curl Experts, my routine is WAY more manageable. Ouidad was kind enough to send me these lock-loving products, and I don’t think I can ever go back to the drugstore brands I was using before. 🤭

AND, for a limited time, Ouidad is offering our readers an exclusive promo code to enjoy 30% off and free shipping on ANY order! Just use the promo code HIP2SAVE at checkout.

Ouidad clearly invested time and quality into each product that lives in the expansive range of collections made for every curl. I absolutely love that you shop by curl type since not all curly hair is created equal. And, even if you don’t know your hair type, they offer a detailed guide that helps you figure it out.

I’ll admit that I wasn’t 100% sure about my own hair until a few months ago, but I know for sure now thanks to Ouidad! 🙌

Here’s what to expect with your Ouidad experience:

I always struggle with grabbing products with the right level of hydration because it’s a little too easy for my hair to appear dry. 😫 Luckily, Ouidad’s VitalCurl+ products create the definition and hydration I’ve been lacking. The VitalCurl+ products I own contain necessary vitamins like B5 and E that make my hair appear super glossy!

These products also have moisturizing botanicals making the curls super luscious and natural proteins which are going to make those curls happy and healthy.

Ouidad is so much more than a curly hair care company!

In addition to their products, they also offer hair tutorials! As a result, it creates a sense of community curly-haired people need. They even have three hair salons located in New York, Santa Monica, and Ft. Lauderdale, which I’m definitely going to look into visiting! After using and styling the products myself, I can’t even imagine how much better my hair would look after taking a trip to the Ouidad Salon. 🤩

Here are all best curly hair products I used & my thoughts:

  • Ouidad VitalCurl®+ Clear & Gentle Shampoo: There’s nothing I love more than a clear, simple shampoo texture, and that’s exactly what this has. It has made my hair feel super balanced and smooth, which makes sense because it’s sulfate-free and color-safe! 🙌
  • Ouidad VitalCurl®+ Soft Defining Mousse: This is my favorite curl product EVER. I’m seriously in love with this mousse. My hair has a mind of its own, so whenever it looks lifeless, I’ll apply this mousse. It genuinely saves my hair, makes it appear full and beautiful, and raises my confidence level like no product I’ve ever tried. Seriously, if I could only have one hair product for the rest of my life, it would be this one! 🥰

Thanks to Ouidad, my hair is stronger than it’s ever been!

Not only have I found products I absolutely LOVE, but I’ve also learned so much about my hair. I feel more like a curl expert myself, I’m more confident, and my locks speak for themselves! 😍

    I have been using the Vitalcurl for a couple years and they work great. I have a lot of fine curly hair. My favorite is the gel, it holds but it’s light. It doesn’t weigh my fine hair down. I also like the Curl Shaper Reactivating mist, helps with 2nd and 3rd day curls. My very FAVORITE product from Ouidad has been discontinued! It’s called Playcurl Amplifying Foam, I have one and a half bottles left, and then I will be so sad!! I have searched to buy up any that are left, but can’t find any.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks so much for sharing about your favorite Ouidad products with us! Good to know how they have worked on your fine, curly hair. We sure appreciate the feedback! 🙌

    I’m interested in the mousse. I have thick, curly, frizzy hair. I’m looking for a mousse that doesn’t leave my hair sticky with that crunchy feel.

    • Elaine

      Try Tresemme mousse. I use both firm hold and curl mousse depending on what’s available.

  3. JO

    When you use a gel or even a mousse on curly hair, the goal is to have a cast on it when it dries. A cast is that “crunchy” feeling. It’s a good thing! All you do once your hair is dry, either with the help of a diffuser on your hairdryer or air dried, is use a clean white tshirt and crunch the cast. Just keep the tshirt between your hand and hair and push/crunch your ringlets/curls until the cast is gone. Move around your head until you’ve broken all the cast, then depending on how big you like your hair use a pick to fluff from the roots without breaking up your curls.

      Thanks I didn’t know that for my curls.

    I did not like their leave in conditioner at all. It also left white residue in my hair too and did not do much in terms of moisturizing my curls. I have mixed hair (black and white) that is long and fine in texture so I’m not sure if that’s why….

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh bummer! Sorry to hear it left a residue. Thanks for letting us know your experience with the leave in conditioner.

  5. Camilledyan

    After reading The Curly Girl book these products were ones that were recommended…along with others. Life changing for me. That might seem like a drastic statement, but curly hair can be a beast. You can’t imagine the negative comments I’ve gotten about my hair. I’m finally excited to walk out with a head full of curls. Humidity or not.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yay! Glad you’re loving your curls now! 🤗🙌 Thanks a ton for the great review!

    I’ve had tremendous luck with Orginal Sprout Deep Conditioner apply to moist hair -out of shower
    works wonders on my wavy hair. You can find at Sprouts stand alone store or online @ Target. Very lightweight I use all week long to refresh, give moisture back to my hair. Inexpensive solution I’ve found that also smells good. I have wavy to curly hair. ✌️

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for the heads up on what has been working best for your hair! 🤗
