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.
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
I have wavy curly hair and have to put some kind of product in to get the curl to stay consistent throughout the day. I have been using this gel for a couple of years and really like the lock that I get. However it can sometimes leave curls a little "crunchy" so I will mix in with an oil or serum to help cut the stiffness. Best tip I can give you is to scrunch, scrunch, scrunch as it dries.4
I love the texture of this gel, it's not too thick or runny. With just a quarter sized amount I can cover all of my hair and I have a lot! I've found better products that tame the frizz but due to cost I'll probably stick with this gel.4
I have very thick frizzy curly hair and this product did work for me. I used a moroccon oil serum along with this gel, and my hair was pretty happy. It just doesn't deal with the frizz quite enough for my crazy hair. I don't use it any longer, it wasn't quite what I was looking for.4
