If you have wavy, curly or kinky hair, or any variation in-between, then you have probably sought refuge in a high quality hair oil to tame and nourish those unruly tresses. Thankfully, Ouidad has devoted itself to caring for curly hair, and their new Mongongo Oil Multi-Use Curl Treatment is a tremendously effective multipurpose treatment oil that can be used as a rinse out conditioner or as a leave-in.
Given that I have long, naturally curly hair, I know a thing about trying to tame frizz, moisturize my hair and scalp, and trying to find products that make my hair soft and manageable. This may seem like an easy task, but curly hair tends to be dry and more tricky to care for.
My preferred method of use is to use this as a leave-in on damp or dry hair. I simply warm a couple of drop between my palms and work it through my hair. It leaves my hair soft, manageable, separates and defines my curls into pretty ringlets, it fights frizz and leaves my hair with a lovely shine. It has a creamy, warm slightly sweet aroma that is very pleasant, but it does fade away soon upon application, and therefore will not interfere with any fragrances that you may wear.
According to Ouidad,
Liquid gold elixir leaves all types of curls soft, manageable and illuminated with healthy shine. Infused with oil from the mongongo nut and blended with coconut, American palm seed oil, and broccoli seed oil, this fast absorbing liquid gold elixir delivers intense hydration to all curl types as it nourishes, restores natural luster, and protects against damage from heat styling and UV rays. Curls are soft, manageable, frizz-free, and illuminated with healthy shine.
