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've had ouidad haircuts before and the products used on me so I was familiar with this product and knew a lot was needed. I felt like it defined my curls well and had some hold but not as string of hold as I prefer. It probably works better for less coarse hair.

Surprisingly effective
Sampled

I couldn't believe how well this product worked on my naturally curly hair. Not sticky at all. Did not make my curls crispy or tight. I was kind of in shock and awe at the good hair day I had after using this for the first time. If it continues working I will definitely buy. Also didn't have the heavy scent that has bothered me about oiudad products before.

Frizz tested and approved
Sampled

I have chronically frizz-prone hair, so I am always skeptical of these "climate control, frizz preventing" products. I know Ouidad is a very popular brand among curly-haired, frizz-prone gals, but because of the higher price tag, I want to be sure it really works before laying down the dough. I will lay down the dough for this product; it works! I tested it on a humid day and let my hair air-dry. Not only does it tame my frizz (not completely gone, not sure anything will do that), it maintains and shapes my curls. I loved my curls once they dried after using this product. And, it's so easy to use.

A summer must for curls
Sampled

I love my curls and I am so thankful that Birchbox has sent a few samples from this brand to me over the past few months. I don't know what my curl routine has been before these products. I cant believe how long the samples have lasted. They smell amazing, but the care they have done for my hair is second to none. I used this anti frizz cream for the first time today on a steamy Memorial Day weekend at the lake and I can't believe how great my curls remained frizz free.

Great sample & product
Sampled

Having never heard of this brand, and already having a product I like... It took me a little while to try this one out. Well now that I have, I cannot stop. This is the perfect density for our Seattle drizzle, and my crazy frizzy hair. Love getting turned on to new brands like this one! Thanks.

Very Effective
Sampled

I have wavy hair that gets very frizzy. It's been a struggle to find something that gets rid of the frizz while keeping the curl. This did a great job of that, without the oiliness of some other products. would recommend.

Wow it worked!
Sampled

I have some doubts about this since I read reviews that it still may people's hair crunchy. But when I tried it I put it on my hair while my hair was damp after I brushed it and then I kind of scratched it up a little bit. It worked and made my hair manageable and accentuated my girls.

3b - Not for Me
Sampled

I have extremely thick type 3b curls. This product really doesn't do much for my hair. It has a thin, almost watery consistency and almost no smell. It might reduce frizz a little, but it made my hair feel very dry. It doesn't work any better than much cheaper gels.

I got this as a sample in my birchbox. It worked well against the hot humidity in Texas.

Smells great!
Sampled

I'm usually not the one to put product in my hair and leave in my natural curls or waves, but this comes in handy after the beach or pool to keep my hair from getting out of control and frizzy. Smells great!!
