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.

My hair definitely isn't curly, but I figured I'd give this a try anyway. My hair isn't really straight either, but not wavy enough to be wavy... That in between I like to call "straivy"... I was hoping this would help smooth and hold the waves I do have, but it didn't... It didn't seem to make much difference to my hair at all. I'll probably give it another try sometime, but I doubt if the results will be different. Oh well. Thanks!

I have very curly hair and live in a very humid environment. Although my hair didn't get huge the second I stepped outside, it didn't seem to tame the flyaways.

I just felt that this sample wasn't very unique or exciting - I find the cosmetics and even fragrance more interesting than the hair gels - and it also didn't look like a "deluxe" sample size. I've enjoyed previous boxes more than this month's selection.

I did not like the way this gel made my hair feel. It didn't work as well as I hoped that it would.

As a person with curly hair I just wasn't wowed by it. It didn't hold it together as much as I would have liked it. Maybe it's meant to go with a style as well I'm not entirely sure but not a fan.

I don't think it was the right product for my hair type. It smells really good, but I don't have curly hair. It felt a little sticky and didn't really do anything to improve the look of my hair.

I can't really blame the product for my terrible hair. I did like that it did not feel heavy or "crunchy". However, my hair gets very tight spiral curls around my whole hair line and at the nape of my neck. The middle and top layers are wavy. This is a bad, bad combo!!! It's impossible to find a product that will help me put more curl into the middle and top while not making the already-curly parts even curlier. It would be a blessing to not have to flat iron my hair, but until a miracle product is invented.... I still haven't found one yet.

Just o.k.
Purchased

I have a love hate relationship with this product. It really does not keep frizz at bay on a super humid day. I have super thick curly hair. I have tried this in past and thought I would try again. I will save it for winter. I think it would work well on thinner hair? The consistency is nice. It smells like cinnamon to me, which isn't terrible and seems to go away after hair is dry.

Crunchy

I had really high hopes for this product, with promises about it producing soft curls, however I did not find this to be the case. I found my curls to be kind of crunchy, incredibly tangled later and even a bit sticky/knotted together. Do not reccommend.
