'The Only Product That Tames My Super-Curly Hair'

Get perfectly defined curls, without the crunch.

Frizz. It's the enemy of curly girls the world over, and taming it is about as easy as wrangling a herd of cats...that just happen to be sitting on your head.

By Tracy Middleton, Women's Health

Mousses and gels can de-frizz, but leave crunch (even the ones that claim not to), and serums, at least the ones I've tried, never seem to hold up when humidity strikes.

Then, about a year ago, I went in for my twice-a-year Ouidad cut. Not familiar? It's a slicing technique that "carves" out individual curls so they keep their shape and don't grow out into the dreaded, upside-down-Christmas-tree shape. (It's a bit pricier than other cuts, but totally worth it!)

After cutting my hair, my stylist slathered on gel (Oudiad's Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel, $26 for 8.5 oz, while it was still wet. It wasn't suuuper crunchy when it dried, but not exactly soft, either. Until! She pumped some of Ouidad's Mongogo Oil Multi-Use Curl Treatment onto her hands ($38,, rubbed them together, then smoothed them over my strands. Instantly, the slight crunch was gone, and in its place were silky, lustrous curls, the likes of which I'd never seen on my own head.

[post_ads]The Mongogo Oil's lightweight formula (made up of wheat protein and styling polymers, according to their website) is genius and so versatile. I use it like my stylist did—after gel and drying—but on days I don't have time for that whole process, I just slick two or three pumps on my wet strands after a shower and let it air dry for way fewer flyways and less frizz, thanks to a silk-derived protein in the oil. When I add a few spritzes before a blowout, I get great shine, without making my hair all greasy and lank. And—bonus—because oil and water don't mix, the treatment repels moisture from the surface of the hair, so I shave a few minutes off the drying time. The oil even contains a UV filter to protect against environmental pollution. I've even heard people use it as a conditioner, adding a quarter-size amount to hair in the shower and rinsing it out after five minutes or so. Beyond its technical uses, the best part might actually be the smell—it's so heavenly that I find myself sniffing my hair all day.

Ouidad's Mogogo Oil is the product of my semi-coarse curls' dreams, but it might not work as well on women with thinner strands—I tried it on my daughter's hair which is curly but thinner. She still had frizz, just shinier frizz. It is a little pricey, but worth it; I've tried cheaper brands and they definitely didn't have the same effect.
