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.

I didn't want to try the Ouidad Climate Control Heat and Humidity gel on a work day since I didn't know how it would go. The product claims to defriz curls without leaving them crunchy. I followed their "rake and shake" instructions where you start at the nape of your neck and apply a small amount of product by raking your hands through your hair then shaking it to get the curl reset. This is done in chunks until you've gotten all your hair. I was at first super impressed - wow, it really did a nice job of enhancing my natural curls. Until it dried. I'm not sure where they got the "no crunch" from but my hair felt like straw once it was dry. The next day I brushed it out and it got better - but it still wasn't great. My overall impression is that I will not be purchasing this ever. I suppose I've had crunchier hair from other products, but I'd rather not have any crunch.

This just did not work, I followed the instructions and my hair still got kinky in the humidity, no difference whatsoever

Honestly, this did not do anything for my very wavy/slightly curly hair. I live in a very humid area and my high expectations were not anywhere near being met where frizz control was concerned. My hair also felt and looked slightly greasy as well.

This is for curly hair. Had someone read my beauty profile before making my box, they would know that I have fine, straight, and oily hair. I tried this anyway, but it does not work well with straight hair that is oily. I have tried it several times adjusting the amount, but of course this is for curly hair. Please! Please! Please! read my beauty profile before shipping useless samples in my next Birchbox.

Made my hair dry - perhaps because I do not have curly hair

I didn't feel this did a great job of keeping my hair curly. It got frizzy quickly. It was nice and soft and didn't make my hair crunchy with is a plus. It might be good for really curly hair, but for my wavy/curly hair it didn't have quite enough power.

Scent

I am not a fan of the scent. A little to sticky for me

Well the gel was not what I expected either. I took a weekend trip to Houston and thought this would be the perfect opportunity to use gel. Well as humid as it is down by the coast, I didn't see any changes to eliminate frizz from my hair. Gel was runny. Not sure it did what I needed it to.

Flat as a pancake

While a little went a long way, it made my hair go flat and even flatter as the day progressed. Not a favorite.
