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.
Let me start by saying I love the Ouidad line in general. They have amazing stuff. This gel is super light-weight. When it comes out of the bottle it feels more like an oil than a gel. It has a nice scent but it doesn't overpower the scent of your shampoo or conditioner.
I bend over to distribute it evenly all over my hair and when I'm done I can't tell that I have gel in it because my hair feels smooth and soft. It drys beautifully and I'm not sure if it's just because I got my hair cut recently but my curls feel springier.
I'll be putting the staying power to the test this summer to see if it can beat the humidity.
I am still experimenting with how much I have to use, but so far I'm loving it!!!!!
I absolutely love this gel. It gives my curls just the right amount of hold without weighing it down. I have used this product both air drying and with a diffuser and it works great both ways! Highly recommend this product to anyone with curly hair!5
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.2
Ouidad and I met when I purchased the starter kit and upon using knew that THIS was the brand for curly hair. After using all the mini products I thought I would try some other brands out and quickly turned back to the tried and true! I use the gel on wet or dry hair. It doesn't leave my hair crunchy and really does keep the frizz at bay.5
I add a dime size amount of this to the Ouidad Hydrafusion creme for all day hold, no frizz and a set style. No crunchy curls and no frizzing when you touch or scrunch up your curls.5
This is a great product for my frizzy hair. I use it before mousse just to maintain my curls better. A little goes a long way and it smells lovely.5
I've been using this product along with the leave-in conditioner for years. I love how it defines my curls and helps controls my curls on humid days. The only downfall would be the cost and that you absolutely have to use the leave-in conditioner which adds more to the overall cost of using this line of products.4
I sampled this product at their store in NYC. I love the line and will be buying the full size!4
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.3
I can not say enough good things about this gel. It is worth every penny!! I owe birchbox for life because without them i would never have discovered it. Its unscented, doesnt take a lot and covers all my needs and i have a lot of hair!5
