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.

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.

Great for curly hair!
Purchased

I have been trying to lay off hot tools and go completely natural with my curls, and this has been a great product to use! Makes my curls feel light and structured, without frizz or other curly hair woes.

Great Sample

I was super hesitant to use this product because of the word "gel" but I applied a small amount to my hair when it was wet and styled it as normal. It seemed to work well against my hair freaking out due to high humidity and heat. I'm not sure if I'll purchase the full size but it was worth a try!

THIS HELPS SO MUCH!

I have curly hair and find all the ouidad products so useful. This one seemed to do a lot to control frizzy ends and smoothed things over. I have bought full size products.

Curly hair should be 'wash and wear'
Purchased

My curly hair usually works great after I put some curl creme in it (Miss Jessie's is my current favorite), but my hair always acts awful and frizzy with this product. Even when I combine it with hair spray and smoothing serum. My hair inevitably ends up in a ponytail after 1 hour.
