Birchbox Breakdown

Birchbox Breakdown: While ‘wash and wear’ is fine and dandy for some, curly hair girls know that it takes a bit more effort to get gorgeous hair every day. To that end, Ouidad’s Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel is a lifesaver, with a unique formula that responds (read: defrizzes) to humidity. We love how the formula tames frizz and coaxes unruly curls into shape without leaving them crunchy.

How it Works

Heat-activated wheat protein protects hair follicles and stops humidity from causing frizz and amino acids and vitamin A add hydration and boost shine. And because the formula is water-soluble, it never feels sticky or crunchy.

How to Use

Separate damp hair into sections. Taking a nickel-sized drop of gel, rake through hands from roots to tips. Holding your ends, shake hair back and forth to define curls. Use a hair dryer with diffuser to set your style.

I can not say enough good things about this gel. It is worth every penny!! I owe birchbox for life because without them i would never have discovered it. Its unscented, doesnt take a lot and covers all my needs and i have a lot of hair!

Really helps lock in curls

I have wavy curly hair and have to put some kind of product in to get the curl to stay consistent throughout the day. I have been using this gel for a couple of years and really like the lock that I get. However it can sometimes leave curls a little "crunchy" so I will mix in with an oil or serum to help cut the stiffness. Best tip I can give you is to scrunch, scrunch, scrunch as it dries.

Great leave in conditioner
Purchased

I love the texture of this gel, it's not too thick or runny. With just a quarter sized amount I can cover all of my hair and I have a lot! I've found better products that tame the frizz but due to cost I'll probably stick with this gel.

Nice product

I have very thick frizzy curly hair and this product did work for me. I used a moroccon oil serum along with this gel, and my hair was pretty happy. It just doesn't deal with the frizz quite enough for my crazy hair. I don't use it any longer, it wasn't quite what I was looking for.

Ouidad Climate Control® Heat & Humidity Gel
Purchased

This is a great "wet" gel to use in summer time heat and humidity. It preserves my curl pattern and has a nice smell. The only downside in my opinion is the cost.

Game changer
Purchased

This product is really all you need. I used to use curling irons to get my curls and waves to look the way I wanted them to, and I always wished I could have "wash and go" hair. This is the first product I've used that let's me finally have that! The great cut I got from the ouidad salon helps, too.

I have course and curly hair. In humidity I look like Bozo the Clown. This gel controls my frizz and leaves it shiny and smooth.
