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.

Responds to Humidity...in the South??
Purchased

I live in the South, where we suffer from gross humidity about 10 months a year, and this product did not pass the test. The only way I could get pretty, soft curls was if I stayed inside a well air-conditioned house until my hair was dry. If I tried to venture out into the humidity within and hour and a half of showering, my hair was a total frizz ball. I added a layer of anti-frizz hair spray and that seemed to help a lot but alone, this product was "meh."

Not what I expected...

This gel is runny - more like a liquid. It doesn't take much though to go a long way. It helps to cut down on the frizz, helps keep the hair from gaining volume throughout the day. I live in the Southeast US, and this product works during the hot, humid summer months.

My favorite gel

I have been using this gel for several years now and it is my favorite. It does a great job at helping my fine spiral curls keep their shape. It can take a little trial and error at first to find the sweet spot between not enough gel and too much gel.

Soft curls
Sampled

Very soft, crunch free curls. My hair didn't look greasy or feel heavy, but the frizz wasn't completely gone either. This is a great base product, but I will have to add another product to keep my hair in control.

Somewhat effective, but prefer other curl products
Sampled

I don't live in a particularly hot or humid climate, but this product did an ok job of controlling frizz for my curly hair. However, if you read the directions they suggest you use quite a bit of product each time. I prefer the Curl Quencher product by Ouidad.

Seemed to work
Sampled

I've had ouidad haircuts before and the products used on me so I was familiar with this product and knew a lot was needed. I felt like it defined my curls well and had some hold but not as string of hold as I prefer. It probably works better for less coarse hair.

Surprisingly effective
Sampled

I couldn't believe how well this product worked on my naturally curly hair. Not sticky at all. Did not make my curls crispy or tight. I was kind of in shock and awe at the good hair day I had after using this for the first time. If it continues working I will definitely buy. Also didn't have the heavy scent that has bothered me about oiudad products before.

A summer must for curls
Sampled

I love my curls and I am so thankful that Birchbox has sent a few samples from this brand to me over the past few months. I don't know what my curl routine has been before these products. I cant believe how long the samples have lasted. They smell amazing, but the care they have done for my hair is second to none. I used this anti frizz cream for the first time today on a steamy Memorial Day weekend at the lake and I can't believe how great my curls remained frizz free.

Great sample & product
Sampled

Having never heard of this brand, and already having a product I like... It took me a little while to try this one out. Well now that I have, I cannot stop. This is the perfect density for our Seattle drizzle, and my crazy frizzy hair. Love getting turned on to new brands like this one! Thanks.

Very Effective

I have wavy hair that gets very frizzy. It's been a struggle to find something that gets rid of the frizz while keeping the curl. This did a great job of that, without the oiliness of some other products. would recommend.
