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.

I was skeptical about trying this because I usually prefer mousse to gel for my fine, flat hair, but this was a surprise. I ended up with much more volume in my curls than I normally get with mousse. The only thing I didn't like was that my hair took much longer to dry than normal, but it was worth the wait once I saw how great my hair looked!! Excellent product.

it was nice, left my hair soft, but my hair isn't curly enough for it. The Oscar Blandi is more suited to my hair type.

I was very skeptical about using this product. I used gel on my hair when i was younger & was teased a lot b/c it left my hair 'crunchy' looking & feeling. So i made the switch to mouse and have never looked back. I love my mouse & cant get enough of it. So when i saw this gel in my box, i was like 'Eh- i don't know if i'll even use this'. So i waited for the weekend and decided to give it a shot. after all it is just a sample and what did i have to loose. I styled my hair as usual whit the gel and as i was drying it, i was already slightly impressed b/c it wasn't making my hair crunchy at all.

I ended up going out with some friends that night and got some compliments about how nice my curls looked and to be honest i was actually very happy with how my hair turned out. So i thank you for sending me this sample and making me realize that maybe it was just the wrong type of gel i was using. I would use this product again!!

Great stuff and great salon! If you are able to visit the salon in NYC - ask for Ayanna - she is awesome! She has cut my hair twice and I loved it both times!

This is an awesome product. Not only is it good for curly-haired girls, it's also good for straight, fine-haired girls as well. I used this for a few days and it helps with frizziness.

This is a great product, I LOVE the consistency of it. I have very curly hair and I live in Florida (basically, the swamp) and there's nothing more gross than sticky, heavy curl creams. This one is light and liquidy so I can't really tell it's there. It works wonders though, I only used a teeny tiny bit and my unruly curls are soft and tame. I wasn't sure this was possible, since nothing makes my hair chill out. Seriously though, great product, and the price isn't so high so I think I might actually purchase this one. Thanks Birchbox!

Honestly, this did not do anything for my very wavy/slightly curly hair. I live in a very humid area and my high expectations were not anywhere near being met where frizz control was concerned. My hair also felt and looked slightly greasy as well.

I've always wanted to try this line and I'm so happy that I got to sample it through Birchbox. I will definitely recommend to friends who want frizz-free, shiny, soft and healthy hair.

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.
