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.
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.5
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.5
This gel changed my curl life! I've never had curls this defined, voluminous, soft and frizz free through all of my product trials and tribulations. Kept the frizz away during an 84% humidity day in NYC. I'm hooked for life.5
This product left me less than impressed...! Applied to my damp hair and then blow dried with a diffuser, but my curls were not enhanced by this product at all. Not something that I would purchase...2
I got this as part of the Perfect Curl Collection box and I had high hopes for it because I need gel to keep my curls tame on a daily basis. It has a nice scent but unfortunately when this product dries it creates a ton of flakes in my hair and leaves my curls looking limp and greasy. My search for the perfect gel continues.1
I live in a dry, desert y climate, so this product left my hair flat and lifeless, reducing my curls to unmanageable waves. If you live in a more humid clime, it might work better for you.3
I have dry, curly hair, highly prone to frizz, and I like to alternate between wearing it naturally curly and blow-dried with loose waves. No matter how I style my hair, this product keeps the frizz away and makes my hair soft! Unlike most "gel" products, this one will not make your hair crunchy and stiff. Always a good hair day when I use this!5
I had such high hopes for this product. I received it in the Perfect Curl Collection, and it was the first item I wanted to try. I followed the directions exactly (they were a little more complicated than I expected). Unfortunately, it left my hair frizzy and out of control. It is a very lightweight product-- it is called a "gel," but I'd say it seems to be a gel-like, thickened serum. It definitely doesn't leave the hair feeling crunchy, but it did leave behind too much frizz for me to purchase the full size.1
I love this delicious smelling, light gel from Ouidad. It didn't leave my hair crispy and flaky, ewww. I combined it with my other curl fave, Deva Poo conditioner, and the result was beautiful, frizz free curls. You will love how lightweight this gel is!5
Prefer the tresFX. This didn't hold as well. And it's sticky.3
