Ouidad Climate Control® Heat & Humidity Gel

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.

Responds to Humidity...in the South??
Purchased

I live in the South, where we suffer from gross humidity about 10 months a year, and this product did not pass the test. The only way I could get pretty, soft curls was if I stayed inside a well air-conditioned house until my hair was dry. If I tried to venture out into the humidity within and hour and a half of showering, my hair was a total frizz ball. I added a layer of anti-frizz hair spray and that seemed to help a lot but alone, this product was "meh."

Not what I expected...

This gel is runny - more like a liquid. It doesn't take much though to go a long way. It helps to cut down on the frizz, helps keep the hair from gaining volume throughout the day. I live in the Southeast US, and this product works during the hot, humid summer months.

My favorite gel

I have been using this gel for several years now and it is my favorite. It does a great job at helping my fine spiral curls keep their shape. It can take a little trial and error at first to find the sweet spot between not enough gel and too much gel.

no frizz

just went on a trip to Texas and so glad I took this box, because the humidity was crazy! you do have to wash a bit more because it isn't great for 2nd day wear but even just a rinse did fine.

I use a product for my wavy hair that I like much better. I let my hair dry naturally with this product and I still had frizzy hair once it dried

Love it

I am a curly hair girl and this product is amazing! its the only gel i can use that's not too much or too little. i love it because its specified in heat and humidity and that's one of our biggest enemies for curly girls like me, we need moisture so our hair sticks up and looks like a big poof but with this gel it stays in place and your curls look beautiful! you use as much as you prefer, the more you use the more hold you'll have. my fav part is that its not sticky and thick, your hair doesn't feel hard and pasty, which for me is a plus because i want it to be as natural as possible and have movement. i definitely recommend this product!

I have placed this in my gym bag for after the gyms showers. As soon as I run out I will be buying the full size. Its a great frizz control during the summer and leaves my curls bouncy and light.

My daughter is in love with the hos product. We live in a crazy humid place, so our hair is always a ball of frizz. This product seems to do the job intended!
