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.

3b - Not for Me
Sampled

I have extremely thick type 3b curls. This product really doesn't do much for my hair. It has a thin, almost watery consistency and almost no smell. It might reduce frizz a little, but it made my hair feel very dry. It doesn't work any better than much cheaper gels.

I got this as a sample in my birchbox. It worked well against the hot humidity in Texas.

Smells great!

I'm usually not the one to put product in my hair and leave in my natural curls or waves, but this comes in handy after the beach or pool to keep my hair from getting out of control and frizzy. Smells great!!

I really liked this product. Waited and tried it on the hottest most humid day. Held my curls well and no frizz! I liked how it was more liquidity gel then thick. No crunchy gel type effect

Works Well
Sampled

I've tried this a couple times so far and it seems to work well. It keeps my curls in perfect ringlets (except for those few always present rebel curls that have a mind of their own), without being crunchy. I'm waiting to finish the rest of the sample during the summer and if it can hold up to the humidity then I'll buy a full size.

I have very curly, colored hair and it did not stop the frizzy for me.
