In 1984, stylist Ouidad opened her first salon dedicated to women with waves and curls and helping them to embrace and love their hair. Since then, Ouidad has developed a reputation as a leader in techniques and products to style and enhance wavy, curly hair.

Defining the Curl Types

The founder of Ouidad long ago identified 4 unique curl types: Loose, Classic, Tight and Kinky. Each different curl type needs its own individualized care, and therefore Ouidad has designed hair care products that cater to the demands of each type of curl. In a previous article, we discussed the best products for those with classic spiral curls. In this article, we are going to be discussing our top product recommendations for those of you with waves or what Ouidad categorizes as “Loose Curls.”

The Best Ouidad Hair Care products for Wavy Hair

Ouidad defines “loose curls” as ranging from subtle waves to soft, elongated s-pattern curls. Loose curls need lighter, more weightless hydration than tight curls, and just a bit of definition. Ouidad’s PlayCurl range is designed for this hair type, helping to achieve, beachy, lived in, carefree waves. The PlayCurl line is based on a combination of natural proteins like Hydrolyzed Wheat and body-boosting Silk to strengthen, lightweight polymers to define and accentuate your natural curl pattern, and botanical humectants like Arnica, Rosemary, and Green Tea to infuse moisture, shine and health.

The wavy hair care product essentials include:

  • Ouidad PlayCurl Curl Amplifying Shampoo. Every great hair care routine starts with the right cleanser for your hair type. Wavy hair needs a careful balance of hydration without weight. Many shampoos that promise volume work by drying out the hair, which can leave curls frizzy and undefined. This shampoo gently cleanses curls without stripping their moisture. The lightweight ingredients including Wheat Protein, Hydrolyzed Silk, Green Tea and Aloe won't stretch curls or weigh them down, so curls are defined and lifted with maximum fullness and bounce.
  • Ouidad PlayCurl Volumizing Conditioner. The next step in any hair care routine is an effective conditioner. The PlayCurl Conditioner blends arnica flower extract, wheat protein and hydrolyzed silk with volumizing polymers to strengthen and detangle hair without weighing it down. It provides an effective conditioning body boost that livens limp curls, defrizzes and encourages waves.
  • Ouidad Playcurl Curl Amplifiying Styling Spray. Lock in your style without weighing down your curls. This styling spray replenishes moisture and adds proteins to thicken curls from within. The lightweight polymers help lock in your natural curl pattern with a weightless lasting hold that won't stretch out loose waves. The result: springy, defined loose curls with tons of body.
