The Best 12 Minutes I've Spent in a Long Time!

I bet that title caught your eye! LOL - I recently experienced the absolute best 12 minutes of my life in the shower! And it was my first time too! My first time using Ouidad's 12 Minute Deep Treatment Intensive Repair that is.

It was actually my first time using any product in the Ouidad haircare line! And it was 12 minutes well spent! The weather is absolutely hot, humid, muggy and sweltering here in the city. Humidity and my hair have never been best friends, until now! I've experienced a drastic reduction in humidity hair troubles since using this product. I received it about a month ago and wanted to use it a few times before posting a review on it.

I have spent years fighting with my wavy hair. Don't get me wrong, I love the waves, I just always hated the frizz. The 12 Minute Deep Treatment Intensive Repair allows me to love my hair again WITHOUT the frizz. Anything that allows you to cut back on using heat styling methods in the summer is pretty much heaven sent if you ask me! It is just too hot to have a blow dryer aimed at my head!

You can buy it directly at Ouidad's salon or website and Sephora also sells this product and they take the words out of my mouth in describing it.

What it does: Ouidad 12 Minute Deep Treatment Intensive Repair works in synergy with heat, delivering a mix of proteins and aminio acids deep into the hair cuticle for serious restructuring and rejuvenating benefits. Bounce, pulse, and luster return as hair is optimally conditioned and able to perform.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:

- Synthetic Dyes
- Phthalates
- GMOs
- Triclosan

What else you need to know: A curl's tendency to lose nutrients and moisture makes this treatment the single most important step in your haircare regimen.

This one has a permanent space in my shower! And I hope to try out more products soon. (They also have a new detangling comb I have my eye on! And I had no idea they had a Pomade) I know this is usually where you are looking to see the great giveaway. and yes that's coming, but this time, directly from the company!
