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 really enjoy using this gel, it does a great job with my unruly curly hair.

Two cons that prevent a 5 star rating for me.
1. I have to use a TON of product to style. I ran through this bottle in almost no time. I think people with curls that can get by with a bit less hold will find this gel to be just perfect.
2. It has dimethicone as an ingredient and doesn't work well with the curly girl method since it can build up.

I can say that it is very easy to work through my hair and reacts very well to diffusing. Bouncy, happy curls!

Great for my thin curly hair.
Purchased

I have a ton of hair but it is thin and curly. It is very difficult to find a gel that doesn't weigh down my curls or make them frizzy. I went searching when I found out my favorite gel had been retired. I love that this gel lasts and makes my curls soft and bouncy. It is one of my new favorite products!

Good for Frizz
Purchased

I like this product. It's good at taming frizz. I have tried a few other products that are better (that i got as other samples from my birchbox!) that i use more.

Great product for curly girls!
Purchased

I have 2c/3a curls and very rarely straighten. This product has done wonders for my frizz and keeps it looking lovely, even during hot, humid summers! A little is all you need with this product, as the only downside is that it will get a little crunchy if you use too much product.

good curls
Purchased

This gel definitely defined my curls, put it on straight out of the shower and comb with wide tooth comb, I air dry hair and my only complaint is that it doesn't moisture hair at all, could tell after a few days that I should use my leave in conditioner... It's a 10 in addition to this gel.

okay product

Since my hair is not curly at all, I let my mom use this sample. Her hair is thick, frizzy, and wavy. While blowdrying her hair she put this product in and it eased the frizziness, but wasn't anything out of the ordinary. I think this product is meant more to tame super curly hair

GOOD JOB OUIDAD

I don't need too much of this (I know a first) and my hair actually stays how I intended, oh and best of all, no gel flakes.

Curly Control
Purchased

I have used many products meant for curly hair over the years, but this is by far my favorite. It isn't heavy and doesn't weigh my curls down--it also doesn't make my hair stiff. Love it!

Hair is tamed!

This stuff is a keeper. Other humidity products leave my hair very greasy. This product keeps my hair looking healthy and nourished without the heavy greasy look.

The Best!

I'm a lifelong resident of South Florida, the heat and humidity capital of the world. I've tried just about every product there is for my frizzy curls. This is by far the best. No frizz, no hard crinkly hair. Just soft, glossy, beautiful curls. Use on top of a leave-in conditioner for best results.

I do recommend the "rake and shake" method for applying the product, which you can learn on the Ouidad website. They have great styling videos. The Ouidad haircut is fantastic too, if you have a salon in your area.
