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.

Great!

I first got a sample of this and wasn't expecting much. I used a humidity control spray at the time but I ended up giving this a try. I love it so much I bought the full size. I live in SF, which is like living in a cloud many days, especially since I walk to work early in the morning through mist. My hair is never entirely frizz free, but there's a serious difference when I use this gel. I swear it even helps with texture and curl. I have wavy hair and can put this in wet hair before bed and wake up with perfect curls that can be manipulated without freaking out.

BEST STUFF

This stuff is amazing. I use it daily for my super curly hair. You don't need very much at all (and I have super long hair too!). It's awesome and a part of my daily routine!

The Georgia humidity didn't stand a chance!

I have naturally spiral curled hair, and I live in the south. Summers here can get pretty humid, so when the warmer months come along I'm always looking for a good product to keep the frizzes away. This product is light weight, and it doesn't make my hair feel crispy like some of the other styling products I've tried. Another great thing about this product is that it has real staying power. As most curly haired women know, washing your hair every day is a big no no if you want to keep it from drying out. I use this product after washing my hair, and the next day, all I have to do is dampen my hair a little and reshape the curls slightly with my fingers before heading out the door.

Works great on my natural curls!
Purchased

I always say I don't have natural curl, I have natural frizz. This product is amazing on my hair. My curls are soft, and my hair is full of volume too. Love this product!

one of my favorite products I have ever recieved. I will be buying this for sure. In the Houston humidity this works wonders on my typically frizzy hair.

Can't live without Ouidad
Purchased

I have curly hair and a stylist trained in the Ouidad method, she turned me on to this stuff years ago. I've used the Curl Cream and the styling gel but hadn't tried this one. This could be my favorite gel so far. Definitely keeps the curls defined and freeze free. I purchased the full size and have been using it during the winter months. We will see if it stands up in the humid days to come this summer!

Works well. I love using this product. I will be a user for life. This was a good sample in my box that prompted me to buy the full size.

Ouidad's best product

My favorite gel -- it's a defrizzer and helps my hair look healthy. I forgot about it until the sample came in my box. Thanks for reminding me!

Great for straight hair too
Purchased

I actually have long, straight hair that's very fine, but it tends to frizz in humid weather, and I live in Austin where it's hot and humid for most of the year. I love this stuff! I need a product to bulk up my fine hair a little bit, control frizz but not make it greasy or leave build up, and this does it all. I was also kind of scared of the word "gel", too, but it's light and just thick enough, so it's not sticky or crunchy, even if I don't blow dry.

Great for Curly Hair
Purchased

A great product for my insanely curly/wavy hair. Does not leave you with that crunchy look and texture even if you put on too much. Great at defining curls and leaving it with natural movement. Fights again the frizz pretty effectively.
