Ouidad Climate Control® Heat & Humidity Gel

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.

Works good, but you need another product with it

I used this with the Ouidad curling souflee and they worked well together. I have 3c and 4a hair and it gave me really good curl definition the first day, but the next day my hair felt dry.

okay product

Since my hair is not curly at all, I let my mom use this sample. Her hair is thick, frizzy, and wavy. While blowdrying her hair she put this product in and it eased the frizziness, but wasn't anything out of the ordinary. I think this product is meant more to tame super curly hair

Too greasy, can't wash off hands
Purchased

This product does not work well for my hair. The slippery, greasy texture weighs my hair down and is hard to wash off my hands. I find it builds up and weighs my curl down over time.

Flaky hair
Purchased

I wanted to love this product because there is a severe lack of quality hair products for people with curly strands. But I've tried this product a handful of times and it just doesn't work for me. My hair is pretty thin and my curls aren't that frizzy to begin with but I still appreciate a product that touts it's defrizzing abilities. Since my hair isn't that frizzy I do put my hands through it often and move it around. With this product, every time I touch my hair after it has dried it flakes on me and I'm left with white residue. This just doesn't work for me, I'm a brunette.

Curly hair should be 'wash and wear'
Purchased

My curly hair usually works great after I put some curl creme in it (Miss Jessie's is my current favorite), but my hair always acts awful and frizzy with this product. Even when I combine it with hair spray and smoothing serum. My hair inevitably ends up in a ponytail after 1 hour.

Not a fan.

I have 3b curly hair and this product just made my hair very crunchy. I'm sure it's great for climate control but I personally hate the stiffness, I'd rather have some frizz with touchable hair.

It did nothing for my hair and the texture of the product is kind of sticky since it is a "gel".I'll stick to my texture cream from Paul Mitchell to leave my hair soft, humidity controlled and with perky curls.
