For years, Ouidad struggled with her own head of curls, which led her to dedicate the past 30 years of her life to building a respected reputation as “THE curly hair expert.”

Ouidad began her whirlwind career as a student styling hair for top designers, Broadway productions and advertising agencies in New York and abroad. Her name became synonymous with curly hair, as well as her famous trademark cutting technique “Carving and Slicing.”

Today, editors at national fashion and beauty magazines consult Ouidad regularly and consider her to be “The Renowned Queen of Curl.” With a “curly hair only” salon and her own exclusive line of hair care products, she is the expert on how to cut, style, and treat curly locks.

Ouidad doesn’t believe that taking care of curly hair should be a burden or take hours of your time. So, combining scientific knowledge with her unique understanding of curly hair’s special needs, she created a line of protein and vitamin enriched products that work with antioxidants to make curls defined, soft, shiny and manageable.

Want to try before you buy? Then you’ve stumbled upon the right beauty blog. Because, this week, Spoiled Pretty is partnering with Ouidad for one of our world-famous giveaways!
One grand-prize winner will receive:

Ouidad Deep Treatment – The first product designed by Ouidad, and the one that has earned her the title “a Curls Best Friend” has been applauded by the beauty editors repeatedly through the years. It is a uniquely formulated conditioner used to “feed” and strengthen the hair. This is the single most important step you take on the road to healthy hair and the cornerstone of your hair care regimen.

Climate Control – This styling gel protects curls from humidity by absorbing moisture from air to hydrate each strand of hair and help prevent frizz. Great for all hair types in humid conditions, summer or winter. Winner of “Best Defrizzer” by Allure Magazine.

Ouidad Botanical Boost – Named “Best Conditioner” by Allure Magazine, this lightweight, leave-in conditioner seals in moisture and provides strands with nourishing vitamins and aloe vera; one of the oldest healing agents. Used anytime on wet or dry hair, this product revives and refreshes curls and calm frizzies.

Curl Talk: Everything You Need to Know to Love and Care for Your Curly, Kinky, Wavy, or Frizzy Hair – Based on Ouidad’s experience catering solely to curly-haired clients at her exclusive Manhattan salon, this book is a straight-talking guide for your daily struggle with the frizzies, offering simple, step-by-step solutions for getting a gorgeous head of curls. It will revolutionize the way you treat your hair.

Two runners-up will receive Climate Control and Botanical Boost.
