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.

It definitely does what it says it does, but come to find out i like the friz in my hair. Without it my hair isn't big and fluffy. I'm going to give it a try with straight hair. I think it will work out better for that.

I *just* had a Brazillian Blowout, so I'm not actually a frizzy girl at the moment (happy dance!). I have not yet tried this sample, as I don't want to mess with my hair routine right now. I'll try it in a few months when my treatment wears off. Liking the idea though, and I hadn't heard of this comapny before, so it was a good introduction; just bad timing. That aside, I was not impressed with the presentation of this sample. I have really thick hair and this is just not enough product to make an impression. The cardboard looked cheap and I think a bottle would have been much better packaging.

I live in TN and it gets humid in the summertime. My hair gets frizzy after I take a shower and the only way to control it is to keep it in a bun until it dries (or go to bed with wet hair). The Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel didn't do much for me. I still had frizzy hair once it dried.

I've heard of this brand and always wanted to try it, but I never have. Only complaint about this gel is it makes my hair slightly stiffer then I'm used to, but it cut the frizz and did define my curls.

Nothing special. Really just like the other brand anti-frizz products. Worked alright, but nothing to write home about.

It's been great on controlling the frizz, but not on hold strength. By the end of the day, my curls are practically gone or doing something weird. It would be an AMAZING product if it had a stronger curl hold. On the other hand, I mixed it in with my straightening products today, and it's done a great job of keeping my hair from frizzing during the day AND it gave me some extra volume, so my hair wasn't flat at the end of the day. Very happy with those results. I most likely will buy it just to mix it in to my straightening products. :)

I loved the generous sample size, and I liked how it made my curls look, but the product made my hair feel dry.

As a professional cosmetologist hairstylist I'm skeptical of humidity products. My hair has never stayed frizz free so I am interested in testing this out. I may wait until I go to a concert or somewhere where I can really put it to the test.
