Curls need proteins and amino acids to absorb moisture, stay hydrated and achieve an even curl pattern. Because of their unique anatomy, curl cuticles are constantly exposed and curls constantly lose these essential proteins and acids, creating the dryness, frizz, flatness and loss of elasticity that impact curl performance. These "building blocks" cannot be replaced by simply treating hair's surface, as typical treatments do.
Deep Treatment works at the cuticle level to replenish proteins and amino acids to counter dryness, loss of elasticity and damage. The heat-activated formula allows instant absorption of these moisture magnets, reinforces curls' internal structure and allows a balanced water retention. Curls get what they need to be manageable and frizz-free with a healthy texture and defined curl pattern in only 12 minutes.
- How To Use
How To Use
Start with clean, damp hair. Use approximately 2 oz. of Deep Treatment Curl Restoration Therapy on shoulder length hair and a bit more as needed on longer hair. Distribute evenly throughout hair until it's saturated. Cover head with a shower cap and apply heat using a heat cap or blow dryer for 12 minutes.
Remove the cap and with the Deep Treatment Curl Restoration Therapy still in hair, add a conditioner evenly throughout hair to seal in the treatment. Then rinse hair gently, allowing a light coating to remain.

Love - love - loveSeptember 4, 2015Curl TypeLoose CurlsCurl ConcernDehydration & DamageI followed the directions to a "T" and this product worked very well for me. After killing my hair with the flat iron and since I'm trying to get more length I had to make a commitment to not wear it straight and accept my hair's natural loose wave pattern and start working with it instead of fighting it. I have been using this after using the superfruit clarifying shampoo -- I definitely noticed a stronger curl pattern. I have been using Ouidad products for a solid 5 weeks since my last color touch up (I have to color and do bayliage 3x/year for highlights) and cut and have noticed a LOT less split ends since I've laid off the flat iron ;-) I think over time my hair will continue to improve. Since I color my hair I was advised NOT to use this product by the Ouidad customer service rep 3 days before I color and 10 days after because you use heat and it can compromise the coloring process. THIS ADVISE was TOTALLY APPRECIATED!!! Now I schedule the "me" time to do this treatment, slap on a face mask at the same time and look forward to how good my hair feels when it's all done.Will Definitely Use AgainAugust 12, 2015Curl TypeTight CurlsCurl ConcernDehydration & DamageI had been noticing recently that my hair was looking pretty stringy and dried out, just from everyday wear and tear. While I don't use any hair dryers, flat irons, or curling irons, I do wash my hair every day because second-day curls are just not for me. So I decided to give the Deep Treatment Curl Restoration Therapy a try. I had read a couple of reviews from other people with tight curls, and they didn't seem all that impressed with it... I'm not sure what they did with it, but definitely worked for me!! I washed my hair with the Ouidad Water Works Clarifying Shampoo, to remove any excess product buildup from my hair. Then, I applied a very generous coating of the deep treatment to my hair, put on a shower cap, and used a blow dryer to heat my hair for 12 minutes, as directed. After that, I applied a coating of my usual Ouidad Curl Quencher Moisturizing Conditioner, combed my hair out as usual, using the Ouidad Double Detangler comb, and rinsed. They recommend that you leave a thin coating of the product on your hair, which I tried my best to do. Then, I loosely braided my hair and left it alone for 24 hrs. Then, I washed and styled my hair as usual the following morning. And I have to say, I noticed a huge difference! My hair is so much softer (which anyone with curly hair will appreciate), and I have SO MUCH more curl definition. Love love love!! I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who loves their curls.Dry, Dry, DryAugust 8, 2015Curl TypeTight CurlsCurl ConcernDehydration & DamageMy hair was dull looking, lacking moisture. I don;t think this was a good fir for my hair type. Very porous, tightly curled, and fine. Unfortunately I had to return this as well.
