08 Aug Preview, Photos, Ingredients: Salon Series By Ouidad – New Curly Hair Products, Treatments
Ah, Beautystat’s resident ‘Curl Gurl’ with HAIR TO SHARE is all smiles for miles again! This morning, I had the pleasure of being invited to an exclusive product launch breakfast at Sephora — before the store even opened to the public! I must say that’s one way to make me smile before my cup of coffee: beauty products and new hair goodies!
This review will be a very special two part series: part one will be the unveiling of Ouidad’s three new products and part two will be my usual product test and review (we all love that, don’t we?). With that said, let’s talk about the amazing new line!
Ouidad’s introduces a collection of innovative treatments (yes, not styling) which offer products that work to treat the health of both hair and scalp at home! Curl Queen Ouidad herself personally formulated each treatment, blended by hand for years at her flagship salon. All three treatments are formulated without silicones, sulfates, parabens or waxes. The Salon Series line works with all types of hair including curls, different textures and styles. Salon Series by Ouidad combines advanced technology with naturally derived ingredients, not to mention high quality ingredients like macroloba and bay leaf oil. Ouidad salon staff, Pat and Serena, were on hand to answer questions, as well as provide product testing. Ouidad’s new Salon Series line is sold exclusively at Sephora stores or Sephora.com. My motto is “Hair health is wealth!” So, these products will definitely be in my collection!
