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.

I have thick wavy hair thats hard to tame- but this product seemed to do the trick. Not too heavy, just right.

Light gel

I was initially nervous because the consistency was watery, but to my surprise this was actually a good thing. I have super curly hair. This gel helped defined the curls without making it crunchy. It didn't stand up to the East coast humidity, but I love it here in LA!

Not a gel person

When I wear my hair curly, I'd much rather use a cream or wax. Gels just don't work for me. I have slightly thin hair, and they usually weigh it down and I end up with a crunchy '90s mess. Plus, the smell of this is super matronly. Very powdery and not my style.

All you have to do is "rake and shake"
Sampled

I really love using this product, especially on humid days. Unlike some other products for curly hair, this product works on very damp hair, damp hair, and slightly damp hair. The "rake and shake" process for applying this product is easy and quick. Rake some through a section of hair, hold the section at the end, and shake. I recommend this product.

Great Product

I have BIG curly hair and this stuff does the trick in the NYC summer heat and humidity. It helps calm my hair down without taking away any of the bounce or volume!

This product was fun to try but in the end did not end up being super effective against humidity.

Great for summer
Sampled

It is light but it has a great hold and works well woth other products from other brands. I am not too sure about how well it helps against humidity becauae anything makes my hair frizz. Wish it would be more long lasting.

Great hair primer

This product has been excellent for days when I leave my hair curly or if I straighten it. Eliminating frizz during humid NYC summer days. Planning to purchase this - love it!

doesn't work for my s-curl wavy hair
Sampled

this is actually the 2nd time I've received this product in a birchbox, last summer I got it as well. I vaguely remembered that I didn't like it then, but I thought I'd give it another try. it did nothing for my hair. it leaves my s-curl wavy hair limp and stringy, and didn't fight humidity in the least. in fact, I packed it for a trip to NOLA in my carry on, and all it did in the height of 80% humidity there was leave my hair flat, straight & frizzy.
