Experience Therapy Multiplied.

We are excited to introduce Mongongo Oil, a multi-tasking, super concentrated oil originating from the kernel of the Mongongo Tree in Zambia, Africa

For thousands of years, the native people have used the Mongongo  fruit, kernel and oil to nourish and protect their body, skin and hair. This “hair food” contains high Omega 6 and Vitamin E content, known for its regenerating and antioxidant properties.

Ouidad took the oil and infused it with American Palm Seed Oil, Broccoli Seed Oil and Castor oil to create a magical elixir that will transform and heal your tresses. Not only is this oil full of wonderful ingredients, it also does not include silicones, sulfates, parabens or any waxes which can coat the hair and weigh it down!

Mongongo Oil is a treatment that will work on any hair type, especially hair that is dry, damaged or needs extra nourishment. Ouidad’s “liquid gold” will restructure your hair as it deeply repairs damage to help combat frizz. The results from using Mongongo Oil will be noticed almost immediately and only improves as time goes on. If you are nervous about hair oils or have tried other oils only to be disappointed, don’t be. Mongongo oil is completely different- it will not make your hair look greasy or feel heavy at all.

So…how do I use Mongongo Oil?

Spray treatment in palms of hand, do not spray directly on scalp.

Work throughout clean, towel dried hair.

Comb through and style as usual

 

Why is it Multi-Use?

It can be used as a leave in treatment to seal in moisture

To speed up drying time

For a smooth, sleek blow out

As a heat protectant while Diffusing/Blow-Drying

To revive dull second day hair

On dry, split ends

To fix mid-day frizz and dullness

To add to Ouidad’s 12 Minute Deep Treatment for an extra turbo boost

 

How will it change my hair?

Hair becomes more manageable, looks shinier and feels so much softer

Mends and gives Dry/Damaged hair the moisture it needs

Adds instant shine

Helps with dreaded frizz

Morgan’s Favorite Curls at the 2012 BET Awards

Ouidad Creative Director, Morgan, loved all of the texture at this year’s BET Awards!

I don’t even know where to start, for the first time I can say that the percentage of textured curls was at a astonishing high! We are not just talking curls…we are talking all natural textured curls! Rocking what we have naturally is the trend of the summer.

Kick the straighteners and relaxers to the curb and opt for controlled curls by just the use of styling products.

Below are a few that stood out at the BET 2012 Music Awards:

Long and loving it! Elle rocked her naturally tight curls with a lot of confidence. I loved her all-natural cascading look, spiced up with a side swept accent to give it some edge! The style is a simple gel application while curls are still wet, for a soft finish. I would suggest our Curl Quencher Moisturizing Gel.

FOR SOFT WAVES

After showering in the evening, braid damp hair prior to going to bed.

In the morning, unbraid for loose waves!

GIVE YOURSELF A MORNING BOOST

In the morning to boost up the style without having to wash and restyle, use the Ouidad Botanical Boost;

spritz on dry hair, smoothing your hands over the surface and slightly scrunching the ends;

the boost helps reactivate the styling gel that is already present in the hair.

OILY HAIR?

Apply a dry shampoo to remove any excess oils at the roots.

Alternatively baby powder can work as well for a quick refresh!


NEED TO CHANGE UP YOUR STYLE? ACCESSORIZE!

Headbands & easy braids are another hot trend!

Braids are easy, try styling the braid to the side for a modern flare. Add a cute loose bun, and you are set for the day or even a night out!
