Last week I attended the Salon Series by Ouidad event at Sephora in NYC. The event was a launch of 3 new hair products from Ouidad- debuting exclusively to Sephora in a few weeks! Over fresh fruit and coffee, members from the Ouidad team educated us bloggers on the new products that have been in the making for years. The line consists of 3 products- Omega 3 Replenishing Hair Treatment, Biotin Lightweight Reparative Hair Serum, and lastly the Mediterranean Bay Leaf Exfoliating Hair & Scalp Treatment.
I see The Omega 3 treatment as more of a deep conditioning masque- it is made with flax seed oil, passion fruit oil, acai pulp, as well as organic Macroloba oil, found in the Amazon rain forest, which helps to completely repair dry damaged hair. I used this treatment after shampooing my hair, and kept it on for about 5 minutes while combing it through. The bottle says you may apply heat (with a blow-dryer) if you want. The consistency of the conditioner is amazing- lightweight, smooth and feels like silk. Immediately after I washed out the treatment I could feel a difference. After letting my hair air dry, it was SO soft!
The Biotin hair serum I applied at night before bed a few times this week- and I’ve really noticed a difference in my texture and health of my hair. The forumla is amazing, it is a serum that is unlike any serum I’ve used before. Unlike Biosilk, or drugstore serums this one is is not goopy or thick. The serum has been formulated without silicones, sulfates, parabens and waxes. The treatment is very complex in vitamins, and just sort of melts into the skin. The end result of using this product is to have stronger, healthier, fuller hair. Also, using this treatment claims to improve hair growth!
The last and my personal favorite of the Ouidad trio- is the Exfoliating treatment. I think Ouidad could sell this product on the scent alone! It’s infused with sugar cane, lemon and apple extracts, as well as Bamboo and the Bay Leaf oil for exfoliation. This is the first scalp exfoliator product on the market, and it’s amazing. It is used for oily or dry scalps, excessive product build up, dryness, etc. Think of this product as a face wash with exfoliating beads- for your head! Right after shampooing, I used a quarter-sized amount and massaged it into my scalp. This product keeps the roots of hair clean and inspires hair growth. After using this treatment just once, my scalp felt clean, fresh and hydrated. I think this product will be Ouidad’s best seller!
All 3 products are at home treatments, giving hair that TLC it deserves! We are constantly coloring, cutting, styling, using heat and damaging our hair, we never really think about the things we put out hair through! These treatments help to bring our hair back to its original state- healthy, shiny, soft, nourished, hydrated and strong. After testing out these new treatments at home this week, I am very impressed! All 3 treatments are unique, effective and simple to use.
