A few months ago I attended the private curlBOX + Ouidad event at the Ouidad NYC salon. Check out the recap and pictures of the products in action here. Each attendee was gifted the brand new Ouidad Curl Recovery Line. Here’s my review of the Melt-down Extreme Repair Mask.
Product Name: Ouidad Curl Recovery Melt-down Extreme Repair Mask
Price: 2.5 ounce $14.00 | 6 ounce $40.00
Availability: Online at Ouidad.com and at their Salon locations.
Product Description: Melt-down Extreme Repair Mask is a luxurious treatment with our proprietary CR-4 Repair Complex™ – including nutrient-rich Mafura Butter and Kalahari Melon Seed Oil – that envelopes the hair shaft with a cushion-like coating of concentrated fatty acids vital to rebuilding, nourishing and protecting hair. A blend of three clinically-proven actives instantly recreates hair’s depleted lipid barrier, restoring the protective layer to promote health and prevent future damage. Unique melt-down technology pampers hair with a subtle warming sensation as it replenishes moisture.

Scent: Sweet and floral.
Consistency: Very thick and creamy.
My Experience: I applied this product liberally to all four sections of my hair, worked it in from root to tip, clipped each section up and put on my Hair Therapy Wrap for 30 minutes. After rinsing the cream out, my hair was manageable and soft.
Pros: This product can be used on wet OR dry hair. Apply it to dry hair for a deeper treatment.
Final Thoughts: This is a great deep treatment. Although, I didn’t try everything in the line, it’s recommended that you use the entire Curl Recovery line from Ouidad together. If you’re hair is curly and damaged from color or heat, give this Salon-quality at home line a try.
