    i have 2c/3a color treated, bleach damaged curls. this mask, along with the whole dry recovery line is absolutely amazing. This is a new holy grail! a little goes a long way and it has a pleasant, light smell. it leaves my hair so soft, detangles effortlessly and gives new life to my droopy curls. Ouidad truly makes some of the best products out there!!!!

    I have 3c/4a hair, and this product did absolutely nothing for my hair which is extremely disappointing. It is not worth $40!!!!!!!! I am a product junkie, and deep conditioners are my favorite products to try so that is why I decided to try it. I got about 3-4 uses out of the jar, and each time I was not impressed. Its kind of runny, not so thick and when used with or without heat, I got the same results... My hair didn't feel stronger or moisturized afterwards it felt limp and blah..

    This is one of my product staples I use this monthly as a recovery treatment. It is pricey but I only use it monthly and a little goes a long way, so the price doesn't bother me too much. As soon as I apply this product to my hair, my curls instantly pop! After rinsing my hair feels strengthened and soft. I would recommend this product to anyone looking to fix damaged hair or to just use monthly to keep hair in check.

    My hair type is actually 3c and I'm in ah of this product. This product is so thick it just melts into your hair. I used the curl recovery nourishing shampoo first as soon as I applied the conditioner, my curls were popping all over my head. I've never experienced a product like this. This is a MUST have in hair care. I'm so glad I found this amazing conditioner.

    This is a dream. Low porosity, dense, thick 3C/4A hair here that has never known dryness like it does since being on the East Coast; and boy, one time and my hair felt like a dream. It is thick, goes on easily and works almost instantly...I went under my cap anyway, just to be sure, but I'm sold. This was SO GOOD for my hair, even though I haven't chronicled long term effects. I'm in a hydration process now so I've given this a break for something I can use daily. I want to dock a star for the price but it's not like I have ever tried or own something that works this well so fast, so \(._.)/

    My profile says 4a, but I'm actually a low porosity 3c with really dense coarse hair. This stuff is AMAZING. You put it on and within seconds your curls kind of just, reform themselves. It's really thick too, so you don't have to use alot of it. It is expensive though, so I only use it once a month. Which is more than enough. It's that good.

    I wanted to hate this product. I wanted to prove that something that cost this much doesn't do anything more than a much less expensive conditioner. Unfortunately...or fortunately...I love it! It has made the single biggest difference in my low porosity, 4a, wash & go hair than any other product that I've used. It helped me realize a full head of popping curls rather than the curls/frizz combo I usually sport. I have gotten many, many compliments in the weeks since I started using this product. So, despite the fact that I hate the price, I'm addicted to the product.

    Love that the product is self-heating as it moisturizes the hair, so a hooded dryer or steamer is not needed. This is a "hair treat" as I would only buy this on sale.

    Favorite Deep Conditioner ever! Works wonders on my characteristically dry 4c curls. I also had my hair bleached blonde before starting to use it and my hair was always so soft and moisturized.

    This masque is heavenly...I love it. It warms your scalp and opens up your pores, so you really get a nice deep conditioner. My hair felt so soft afterwards and what do you know? No frizz! It's so expensive, though, so I recommend only using it once in a blue moon to really get the most out of your investment.

    Love this stuff. But I had to take off a star for the cost.

    This DT was thick and initially difficult to distribute. I applied small amounts and worked it through an area at a time. After massaging/working it a bit, it seemed to almost foam and then distributed very easily which must be the "melt-down" the name and description alluded to. I did see evidence of the lipid repair because I felt the DT didn't rinse out fully and left behind a coating. Perhaps this layer of repair was too much for my curls because it left my curls frizzy and messy, a common sign of overconditioning. But I always airdry so perhaps my hair didn't need a DT for extreme recovery.

    New favorite. Goes on sooooo silky smooth and coats my strands in deliciousness. It actually elongates my curls so that all of my hair can be thoroughly conditioned. When i rinse it out, my coils are soft, but defined and shiny. Didn't need a ton of product -- it distributed very easily. Miss Ouidad you know what you're doing!!!
