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.

I have fine, naturally curly hair and I had heard such great reviews from other curly girls about this product. It worked good for me to keep my curls curly without being crunchy, but it just didn't 'wow' me anymore than my usual product. If you have hair that doesn't hold curl well, I think this would work perfectly for you. My hair seems to do quite well on its own.

Great Sample

I was super hesitant to use this product because of the word "gel" but I applied a small amount to my hair when it was wet and styled it as normal. It seemed to work well against my hair freaking out due to high humidity and heat. I'm not sure if I'll purchase the full size but it was worth a try!

No frizz but...

Used a little to test it out, and it left my hair without the frizz but I felt my hair was heavier and felt a little weighed down or almost oiley. It just did not agree with the texture of my hair at all. However, the plus was the frizz was definitely gone, and the curls were shiny.

nice smell

I think this product was great as a sample, but I am stil on the fence as to if I would purchase the full-size. The scent was nice, and the texture was ok, but I found it to leave my hair a bit too greasy,

not the best for black hair

This product smells nice, but just wasnt right for my hair type. I don't think it works well with chemically relaxed hair, or AA hair textures. Consistence is good, smells nice, wish make something for african american hair texture

So So

I was so excited when I got this in my box because I had just ran out of what I was using before for frizz. I felt like after I dried my hair that it was weighted down. I have really thin hair so I have to be careful what products I put in it because it makes it flat and a greasy look. I unfortunately won't be using this product anymore.

great product

I like everything about the product, except the sample packaging, It would be nice if it was resealable, seeing how I wouldn't use it all in one go.

It's fine

It keeps the frizz away, but I still got some crunchyness. A little goes a long way, so the price isn't too bad.

I've got the curls.

Very good at controlling frizz on natural curls, and doesn't make them crunchy and strung out. I will definitely be purchasing this product through Birchbox.
