If you’re like me, then you’re always on the lookout for curly hair products and innovative ways to keep your curls looking their best, so when I was given the chance to try out the Ouidad Whipped Curls Daily Conditioner and Styling Primer, I was all in. 


Ouidad Whipped Curls Daily Conditioner and Styling Primer is a product that I have been using for a few weeks now. So what is ‘Whipped Curls Daily Conditioner and Styling Primer’ all about?

According to Ouidad:

  • Helps to restore essential moisture to dry, damaged, or dehydrated curls
  • Leaves curls feeling soft and conditioned
  • Can be used as a leave-in primer, or in the shower as a conditioner

Curly hair requires a special hair care regime

Curly hair is special and require a special hair care regimen. Their microscopic properties and physiochemical features make them unique among different types of hair.

We naturally want curly hair that is healthy, bouncy, and natural. To do so, moisture is required, as well as avoiding any dryness and frizz. Hair health is dependent on moisture, which can be challenging at times.

Daily grooming and hectic working days demand a fast remedy to moisturize the curls, keep their water level up, and keep them hydrated to have have a bouncy and natural curl definition. When we lack moisture, our hair can become brittle, which leads to breakage.

Its complete INCI listing is provided below and key ingredients are discussed in detail.

Ingredient listing:

Key ingredients


Glycerine is listed up at the beginning of the ingredient listing which demonstrates its high concentration used in the formulation.

It is a time-tested; traditional humectant used in skin and hair care formulations. It imparts water to hair fibers.

However, its performance greatly depends upon the outside humidity. Care should be taken while using glycerine in a low humidity environment.

Behentrimonium Chloride

It is a cationic conditioning agent that softens hair fibers. It detangles hair curls, improves hair surface properties, and boosts slip.

Cetyl Esters

Cetyl ester is waxy material offering unique sensorial properties and bodyfying benefits to the formulation.

The aesthetic benefits provide a special experience during the application and leave a unique touch and feel on the hair once they are dry.

Hydrogenated Olive Oil and Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil

Olive oil is a rich source of mono-saturated fatty acids along with antioxidants. Olive oil and its hydrogenated version work amazingly as emollients, boosting the slip of hair curls without any greasiness.

Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter

Shea butter is a natural emollient with unique multifunctional properties. It preserves the hair moisture level, prevents any water loss, and it lubricates the hair surface which detangles hair curls and prevents any knot formation.

How To Use It

As a daily conditioner

·      Shampoo your curls with a sulfate-free shampoo.

·      Apply Ouidad Whipped Curls Daily Conditioner and Styling Primer in small quantities.

·      Work it in with your fingers or your preferred hair tool and leave it for 2-5 minutes.

·      Rinse it off and style your hair as usual.

As a leave-in conditioner

·      Apply Ouidad Whipped Curls Daily Conditioner and Styling Primer to damp hair.

·      Work it out by using your fingers or your favorite hair tool.

·      Style your hair as usual.

When you first pump it out, it’s a creamy white thick consistency, but as you start to work it in, it emulsifies and becomes more like a cream. A little goes a long way! Literally.

Ingredients of Concern

DMDM Hydantoin is added as a preservative. However, it is known to release formaldehyde, a known carcinogenic.

Synthetic UV absorbers are added into the formulation, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane, and Benzophenone-4. All of them are synthetic ingredients and might be potential irritation over prolonged and repeated applications.

“I was so excited to embrace my curls and take better care of them. As I started to dive in, I immediately became overwhelmed with the information.”

I read books and tried doing things because "that's what I'm supposed to do," but it didn't always work and I didn't understand why. I'm so grateful for Verna and her blog. Her info. actually helped me understand more of the science of why some methods helped and what products or ingredients to use and why. Anyone that compliments my hair and wants to start a curly journey, I tell them to start here. My hair is so much healthier and I'm so happy with it.
