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.
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.5
Prefer the tresFX. This didn't hold as well. And it's sticky.3
This product has been a staple in my hair regime for many years. It is a product that I keep coming back to because it works so well to maintain my curly hair and keep the frizz at bay, especially during humid days.
I have had curly hair my entire life, and have always worn my hair curly and I have tried EVERY product known to man. Ouidad puts out high quality products for every type of curl, and this product is one of the best out there.
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
