Ouidad Product Launch And Giveaway!

Hey there curly girls this one’s for you!!

I am super excited to tell you about FOUR new products that curly hair company Ouidad has just released to make your spring and summer perfectly curl-iscious!

Ouidad Advanced Climate Control For Curly Hair

Win all four Ouidad Advanced Climate Control products!

If you were following me last year you will have seen that I used the travel sized Ouidad products to make my life easier (and retain the glam!) while I was on my Glam Italia Tours. We were diving off of chartered boats of the coasts of both Capri and Puglia, and swimming in the Mediterranean and the Adriatic, which was absolutely amazing, but could have been fraught with hair anxiety for me if not for Ouidad! My once wavy hair has become super curly, but not pretty curly. I always say that when left to it’s own devices my hair looks like a really bad home perm gone drastically wrong. If you are a curly girl then you already know how something as simple as swimming, or being in humidity can be a glamour buzzkill. Having Ouidad with me meant that I could swim as much as I wanted. The combination of the Advanced Climate Control Heat And Humidity Gel to let my hair air dry into perfect curls, casually done without a mirror while sailing around the coast of Capri, and their Moisture Lock Leave In Conditioner, which was my favorite beauty product of the summer and possibly of the year, meant that I could swim and still have pretty hair.

Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Set

On April 3rd Ouidad launched four Advanced Climate Control products designed to keep the frizz at bay while you rock your curly girl glam.

Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Defrizzing Shampoo

Curl and frizz control start in the shower, so the first product is the new Advanced Climate Control Defrizzing Shampoo. This sulphate free cleanser maintains your curl’s protective barrier, has silk proteins to seal the cuticle, holding in moisture and preventing frizz, and also contains UV Protectants.

Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Defrizzing Conditioner

Curls crave moisture, so without very specific help that keeps moisture balanced and doesn’t weight the hair down, your hair will try to grab it from the atmosphere, which raises the cuticle and creates the dreaded frizz. Advanced Climate Control Defrizzing Conditioner prevents frizz and unwanted (and uncontrolled) volume, balances moisture to keep your curl defined and bouncy, while silk proteins and nano technology smooths the cuticle so you maintain glorious shine.

Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Detangling Heat Spray

Spritz, prime, protect, The Advanced Climate Control Detangling Heat Spray needs to be a permanent fixture in your beach bag! Not only does it prevent frizz and flyaways and unwanted volume, not only does it help detangle and make curls manageable,  not only does it have UV filters to protect your hair from environmental aggressors, but it also contains natural oils to nourish and moisturize your curls. Spritz it into your hair before you hit the water and it protects your hair while you’re swimming, use it as a primer before you start styling – curly girl meet your new best friend! And it smells amazing!

Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Heat and Humidity Gel


Advanced Climate Control Heat And Humidity Gel is the ultimate curl styler. Trust me curly girl, this product will give you life! When you have curls you know that gels can make your hair look crunchy, kill any chance of movement in the hair, kill any natural bounce. But without a styling aid your curl, whether it be wavy or kinky, can take on a life of it’s own and give you too much volume with zero discipline. The Advanced Climate Control Heat and Humidity Gel changes everything.

You don’t use this product like a regular gel, instead you divide your hair into four sections, run the gel through one section at a time, rake through it with your fingers, and then holding pieces of the section at the ends shake the curl up into the hair. Ouidad’s Rake and Shake technique is brilliant! It’s also super easy to do, easy enough that you can whip out fabulous curls without a mirror, on the deck of a boat, with no drama and no one knowing what you’re up to! Ouidad’s award winning Heat and Humidity Gel was upgraded with the Anti Frizz Nano Technology, so it’s even better than before!

These new products are designed for all curl types, so wherever you are on the curly spectrum, this set is for you!

Carole’s Daughter Monoi Oil

Ever the product junkie

I was really excited to try out this fabulous hair oil.


Carole’s Daughter Monoi Oil

Carole’s Daughter Monoi Oil Strengthening Serum

is both a preventative serum, and a miracle oil

that repairs damage to the hair.

It’s silicone free, so is quite lightweight

making it a great choice for fine hair, but at the same time

is fabulous for thick hair like my own.

It controls frizz, gives a gorgeous shine to the hair,

while rebuilding the hair from the inside,

rather than just coating the outside.

There are multiple products in this line, 

all utilizing Monoi Oil from Tahiti.

They not only feel exotic, but smell exotic too.
