If humidity wreaks havoc on your coils, try Ouidad’s Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel.

Ouidad

Birchbox Breakdown

Ouidad HydraFusion Intense Curl Cream delivers the holy trinity of curly hair: softness, definition, and frizz-fighting power. Unlike most styling aides, it does all this without any crunch factor. Plus, the moisturizing formula keeps hair hydrated and shiny all day.

How it Works

Ouidad’s trademark HydraFusion Complex is the secret behind this moisture-rich cream. Hydrating milk thistle and sweet almond extract add additional moisture, while hydrolyzed silk proteins seal in moisture and protect against dreaded frizz.

How to Use

Work a nickel-sized amount through damp hair. Using your pointer finger, twist curls individually to ensure even distribution. Dry with a diffuser attachment or let your hair air dry.

close, but not quite
Purchased

I have a LOT of fine, curly hair (think Keri Russell or Julia Roberts) that has plenty of body and a tendency to frizz. Where I live it is very humid so I am always looking for something that helps maintain shape and can stand up against the humidity. I have to use about 4-5 pumps, and it takes several hours for it to really look nice. If I put in less, it doesn't hold the shape, but with that much, it goes through a phase that is sticky and sort of stiff. I let it air dry and for the first four hours or so it looks like my hair is still wet, then it settles into a nice cult pattern. If I try to break it up with my fingers before it settles on my own it gets frizzy. I really wanted this to work but its just too much messing about to get a consistent stye that I am happy with. I will stick with the Ouidad gel + a cream or oil smoother, which is what I use now. I really wanted this to work. Maybe in a less humid place or in hair that has a tighter spiral?

Love this!
Purchased

For the first time, i can wet my hair, brush it, put a little product in and go. I brush out my hair and fluff it around a little with my head upside down. Two pumps, spread through my hair and smooth a little on the top. I then scrunch it up a little and go! It looks great without all kids of products for once and I like the subtle scent.

Looking for beach waves and it was okkkk
Purchased

I didn't hate this product, but I certainly didn't love it. I used it as my hair was drying and didn't find the curls/waves I was looking for. It is lost among a sea of other hair products now.

pretty good product
Purchased

I think the product helped with curl formation. I wear my hair naturally curly and sometimes I need a boost. I cant say it worked miracles, but it did help. I'm not sure its worth the price???

In Love
Purchased

I have naturally curly hair, often times unruly. I hate, hate, HATE the feeling of crunchy, weighed-down curls. This product offers crazy moisturization, body and softness without any of the negative after-effects of applying product. Very subtle smell, which is nice as I don't want to walk around smelling like a salon. I would recommend this product to ANYONE looking for curl control.

Great product!

I hate hate hate the way some creams/styling products make my curls feel crunchy and scraggly. This product kept my hair soft and my curls didn't look mangled. They look healthy. Smells great, which is a plus for me.

May be better for super curly hair
Purchased

I have wavy hair, and this works well on it. I think it may work better on ladies with tighter curls though.

I am "in like"
Purchased

I tried this sample out of my birchbox on a very humid trip to Florida with great results. However, since buying the full size I have had trouble replicating the effect (maybe I am not using enough of the product?). I wish the pump put out an amount close to the necessary amount of product. I use 4-5 pump at a time and question the need to use more. As a curly haired girl who prefers to only wash her hair once every 2-4 days and I feel like this product only works for day 1, many of my other products are still working effectively on day 2. I do like the softness and definition but wish it had more staying power!

Great hair cream

This was wonderful - a little went a long way, and was very moisturizing and easy to use. Fights frizz without being crunchy. I would purchase a full size of this product.

Curls and Curls

I love Ouidad for myself and my family. My children have super curly hair and have ried many detangling and softening prducts. None of them seem to work as well and be as light and not greasy at all!
