Ouidad Clear & Gentle Shampoo and Balancing Rinse Conditioner Review + Giveaway!--Ends July 26, 2011


Anyone with curls or waves will be especially interested to learn about Ouidad hair products because they are a leader in this area.  Recently, I was sent their
Clear & Gentle Essential Daily Shampoo and the Balancing Rinse Essential Daily Conditioner to review and giveaway.

Both of these products will become favorites for all from how they performed on my hair.  To begin, the Clear & Gentle Essential Daily Shampoo is safe for chemically treated hair.  This shampoo is low PH formulated, and nourished my hair with wheat protein and jojoba seed oil for a glorious healthy shine! 

Their Balancing Rinse Essential Daily Conditioner was a big hit with me for how it easily it detangled the knots I always get after shampooing my fairly thick, naturally wavy hair.  After styling, I loved how the wheat protein, vitamins and amino acids left my hair and curls more manageable, soft and gleaming without weighing it down with heavy waxes or oils.  Now I can understand why this particular conditioner won a Best Beauty Award in 2002 from Allure Magazine because it is an exceptional product.  

If you want to learn more about how to handle your curls, Ouidad has some helpful tips.

Whether you have tight curls, loose curls like myself or are curl free, I honestly believe you would love these Ouidad products I tried because you will see a healthy difference!

*Disclaimer:  This is my own honest opinion.  No money was exchanged.  I received free products  so that I may express an opinion.*  

Thanks to Ouidad, one lucky Nuts 4 Stuff reader in the United States wins the Clear & Gentle Essential Daily Shampoo (8.5 oz.) and the Balancing Rinse Essential Daily Conditioner
($28 value)!
