Owner: Ouidad

Description: Re-form curls and go from kinky to softer waves with Ouidad’s exclusive Softening System. This treatment works to soften out-of-control curls making them more maintenance-free and healthy looking. Softening is not a straightening system as it does not contain the harsh ingredients that standard straightening does. The Ouidad exclusive softening system uses half the amount of processing ingredients in combination with a deep treatment that is tailored to each client. Results are looser curl patterns that allow for a completely customized curl or wave.

Length of service: 2-3 hours, depending on the individual’s density, texture, curl pattern, porosity and hair’s overall health
