Styling Tips

Place a dollop in the palm of your hands and rub your hands together. Gently run your hands throughout your hair, spreading the conditioner, and leave the product in your hair. This can be done in the shower without rinsing or once you are out of the shower. Your hair will be instantly detangled and protected with extra moisture so it is ready for styling products to effectively define and manage any curl.

    my old leave-in was no longer giving me good results. this was awesome after the first use. curls were soft, plumper and shinier. I use it daily and mix in a few drops of jojoba oil on wet hair. btw, since I have no aspirations for long hair, the cost is not disturbing - the bottle should last for months. because my experience was so positive, I tried the Curl Quencher Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner - HOLY GRAIL!!!!!!

    Everything about this sucks. It has this weird herby earthy smell, kind of like some kind of green tea mixed with dirt. Also it doesn't moisturize or lock in ANY moisture. My hair is dry and I didn't realize this was LIGHT moisturizing. Now i can't even return it. The only good it does do is detangle but I'm not paying $23 to have my hair detangled.

    I've used this several times since I always receive it as a sample and I LOVE it! It's so expensive but I might have to splurge and purchase it. It has a nice clean smell but I noticed it defined my curls and I had a great hair day that day after using my styling products over it. No frizz, curls lasted all day, and I had great second day hair. Highly recommend!

    This product is heaven in a bottle. Works amazing on my 3b/ 3c hair. Im in love with all ouidad products but this, 12 minute deep treatment and botanical boost are my top favs. Because, I never been a big fan of gels I use this for the rake and shake method and style my hair. The longevity last 3 days which is amazing. My hair usually last 1 day. Results: SOFT BOUNCY BEAUTIFUL CURLS

    this product is just ok. i use it along with joico leave in detangler. It doesnt smell great in the bottle, kind of like earth. just plain. i am sensitive to smells to i thought ok this isnt bad but not great. i did notice that the smell goes away completely as hair dries. as for moisturizing i dont see a difference with this product.

    If the price was better, this would be an HG leave-in. I love the musky smell and it leaves my hair soft.

    This was just less than okay. Didn't moisturize, didn't detangle, didn't smell that great, didn't provide value for the price. I would not recommend for 3c/4a hair.

    Fantastic leave-in for dry winter days and nights! I must say I'm on a roll lately with Ouidad products. Between the Climate Control products and the Moisture Lock stuff I've nearly conquered wiry straw-like seasonal frizz. Moisture Lock leave-in works beautifully with Climate Control Gel and Botanical Boost, and I've used it successfully with Hydrafusion Curl Cream as well. Using this leave-in after a Ouidad Omega 3 treatment makes it feel like I have a whole new head of bouncy, soft hair. Moisture Lock leave-in is so light and smooth I think it can be used with anything. It doesn't build up, and it's not greasy or waxy in the least. Like all Ouidad's products, a little goes a long way, so I don't worry about the bottles being only 8 oz.

    Great product, doesn't weigh my wavy 2B hair down. Used generously, my hair can get a bit straw-like and less curly. The key is to find the balance of how much to use. I use it while scrunching now and it seems to define my hair and keep it smooth. (Also, the 'rake n shake' did not work for me, just straightened my curls out!).

    Love this! Especially right after I started using it (switched from the B&B Leave-in), it actually made my hair feel softer. I really like trying new products, so I tried out something else when I finished the bottle, but I can definitely see myself coming back to this one day.

    This leave in tends to be a little too lightweight for my thick curls. Unfortunately I cannot believe I am almost done with this bottle and it has not even been a full week since I bought it. Needless to say, I am not happy about spending 22 dollars for a week of product. I might repurchase if it comes in a bigger size.

    A lightweight leave-in, doesn't weigh your hair down at all. It leaves hair soft, moisturized and prepared for other products. I usually add a TINY amount of argan and apricot oil to quarter size amount of Moisture Lock (I have 3b hair that reaches my collar bone) and scrunch into clean, wet hair. I don't use this on second day hair like other reviewers have suggested, however. I use KCKT and wet hands for that.

    Love, love, love it! Adds definition. I use it before the Ouidad climate control gel and it helps the gel hold better. I tried using a different leave in conditioner when I ran out of this and my curls didn't hold nearly as well.

    I'm a 2a curl and this is the first conditioner that I have used that doesn't make my hair feel oily. Instead my hair feels very soft and I've gotten a lot of compliments on how my hair looks while using this product.

    This leave-in is by far the best I have ever used. My hair no longer feels like a Brillo pad! I have used other leave-ins, but this one out shines all the rest! I will continue to use this product and will recommend it.

    My hair is a mix of 3B/3C, so I find this to be too watery/slippery for my hair. (I usually prefer something a bit creamier.) I've managed to find a good balance by layering Ouidad's Climate Control Gel a few minutes after applying the Moisture Lock, and that usually gives me well-defined, moisturised curls. However, on its own, the Moisture-Lock doesn't completely satisfy me.

    my favorite leave in. helps define my waves and leaves my hair really soft. i use it on the hair wet and then on 2nd or 3rd day hair sometimes. gives much needed moisture back to my hair and smells fresh & clean!

    Ouidad's Moisture Lock Leave-In Conditioner defines my curl and moisturizes. If I could only use one product, this is the one. I have Type 2C hair -- looked thick and dry all my life. With Moisture Lock, my hair's shiny and soft. Love this stuff, use it whether I wash or not.

    I like this conditioner. It works very well at keeping my hair hydrated. I use it with Ouidad's moisture lock conditioner and they work well together. I still have some fly-aways and a little frizz, so I can't give it 5 curls, but it does give me moisture and some curl definition. I would buy it again.

    Simply love this product. I use it before applying climate control and also as an overnite condition treatment applied to dry hair about an hour before bedtime. It's great for helping to control frizz and not weighing your hair down. I couldn't live without it!

    This is a leave in that you need to figure out what amount works for you b/c if you use too much it will weigh your hair down I try to use very small amounts on the back and ends of my hair and avoid using too much on my bangs and the front. It has a nice scent. I would suggest getting the sample first from the website which comes with several uses before buying this to see if it's right for you b/c it's expensive for it not to work

    My new favorite Ouidad product !
    I use it under the Climate Control Gel my true HG and get the least frizzy curls I've ever had.

    Great stuff. I usually dislike leave-ins, but this one is light and doesn't weigh your hair at all. It leaves your hair soft and moisturized. The only draw back is the scent, smells like cheap soap from a motel, however after you apply styling products you can't really smell it.

    good stuff. I think the idea of this conditioner being light-weight is a little deceptive. I used too much the first couple of times and my hair looked dirty. It's quite powerful, and I got really great results once i worked out the amount to use.

    This has been working great on my curls. Loved the way it feels when i put it on wet and holds my waves so nicely. A must have!

    I love this stuff! It doesn't leave my hair feeling dry. Its also very light and creamy and goes on very smooth! I do not just use this and leave, I put a styler over it like "Curl Keeper" or "Rockin Ringlets" and its works BEAUTIFULLY. My hair is soft, and bouncy, and super shiny! :) My boyfriend loves it!

    Good medium-weight leave in. Works well for layering with styling products and doesn't weigh down the hair or leave an oily finish.

    A great leave-in. Doesn't feel heavy or sticky; doesn't negatively impact styler

    I love this stuff. It's become a staple, especially with the dryer, colder weather. Perfect consistency.
