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 stuff is great, no residue, my curly hair looks moisturized. Probably the first thing i've loved from birchbox (besides that kind bar) and the only thing that kept me from canceling next months box. They have an excellent deal on HSN you get a lot of Ouidad items for $30.5
I didn't want to try the Ouidad Climate Control Heat and Humidity gel on a work day since I didn't know how it would go. The product claims to defriz curls without leaving them crunchy. I followed their "rake and shake" instructions where you start at the nape of your neck and apply a small amount of product by raking your hands through your hair then shaking it to get the curl reset. This is done in chunks until you've gotten all your hair. I was at first super impressed - wow, it really did a nice job of enhancing my natural curls. Until it dried. I'm not sure where they got the "no crunch" from but my hair felt like straw once it was dry. The next day I brushed it out and it got better - but it still wasn't great. My overall impression is that I will not be purchasing this ever. I suppose I've had crunchier hair from other products, but I'd rather not have any crunch.1
I've heard of this brand and always wanted to try it, but I never have. Only complaint about this gel is it makes my hair slightly stiffer then I'm used to, but it cut the frizz and did define my curls.3
I have curly hair and this product will be a definite summer must have!4
This just did not work, I followed the instructions and my hair still got kinky in the humidity, no difference whatsoever1
It made my hair really gressy the next day faster then most time.3
I have very curly hair and live in a very humid environment. Although my hair didn't get huge the second I stepped outside, it didn't seem to tame the flyaways.2
This worked as promised. I used it and my daughter used. She has beautiful ringlets and these defined her curls without making them crunchy5
I plan on buying this, I loved this product it made my curls stay all day. My hair did get a little crunchy but i may have used a little to much in those parts of my hair4
I just felt that this sample wasn't very unique or exciting - I find the cosmetics and even fragrance more interesting than the hair gels - and it also didn't look like a "deluxe" sample size. I've enjoyed previous boxes more than this month's selection.2
