Questions & Answers for Ouidad Moisture Lock™ Leave-In Conditioner

Question
still use another conditioner in shower too?
Should this be used after a conditioner is rinsed out in the shower, or instead of the conditioner you would use in the shower? Would both make your hair too greasy?

I condition my hair in the shower but rinse it out thoroughly, then apply the Moisture Lock. Also, I only use shampoo about once a week. Then every day or two, I "wash" my hair with conditioner. Rinse well, then apply Moisture Lock. Not too greasy. The opposite, in fact. Bouncy and lovely. Hope that helps!

I do use the moisturizing conditioner in the shower and rinse some out. After towel dryed, I use the leave in conditioner too. I use just a bit and comb through. It does not weigh hair down or feel greasy. My curly hair was frizz and dry, this works for me. Just look at product line to combine with your hair type. After all only you know your hair best.

I'm no expert - but this product tends to protect hair from heat damage & provides addt'l moisture. Since you're dying your hair a bit darker red (mine is naturally strawberry blonde) your color will tend to fade faster anyways. I'd recommend shampooing no more than 1 x per week & use a dry shampoo in between washings.

Yes, all of Ouidad's products are safe for color-treated hair, except for the Water Works shampoo which strips hair of product and color because it's a clarifying shampoo. This product does nothing except moisturize and smooth your hair.

You can find the complete list of ingredients on the website www.ouidad.com. Just click on the product name and then click on ingredients. It will tell you everything that is in it. Also, if this product isn't good for her, I suggest looking into the Mixed Chicks line. Go to www.mixedchicks.com for information on that line, especially formulated for biracial hair.

I have very fine hair, so I use just a little of this on the bottom half of my strands, meaning I don't apply it very close to the roots. I take a little dollop of the condition and really rub it all over my hands, then I flip my hair over and just work this into the ends and maybe a little further up. When I do that, it doesn't weigh my hair down.

This product is for dry hair and if I use too much it tends to relax my curl, so it doesn't seem to have any curling abilities, just moisturizing. If you have dry hair, even if it's straight, it should work for you.

I found this made my hair soft and natural looking (just use a little bit!). I am sure it would be moisturizing for your hair. It helped me have less frizz and helped define and moisturize my curls. It might be too heavy for fine straight hair - but I'd get a sample and see! (my hair is fine and as long as I don't use a heavy shower conditioner, it is great and doesn't weigh down my hair, but a little goes a long way).

I use this before flat-ironing my hair (like I do every day even when I wear it curly) and then use a straightening spray with heat protection (by Garnier) as I flat-iron. This conditioner alone may not be quite enough for flat-ironing, but it does protect enough for blow-drying with a diffuser daily.
