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.
I have fine, naturally curly hair and I had heard such great reviews from other curly girls about this product. It worked good for me to keep my curls curly without being crunchy, but it just didn't 'wow' me anymore than my usual product. If you have hair that doesn't hold curl well, I think this would work perfectly for you. My hair seems to do quite well on its own.3
I wanted to love this product because there is a severe lack of quality hair products for people with curly strands. But I've tried this product a handful of times and it just doesn't work for me. My hair is pretty thin and my curls aren't that frizzy to begin with but I still appreciate a product that touts it's defrizzing abilities. Since my hair isn't that frizzy I do put my hands through it often and move it around. With this product, every time I touch my hair after it has dried it flakes on me and I'm left with white residue. This just doesn't work for me, I'm a brunette.2
I have very tight curly/coily hair and this summer in Connecticut has not been kind. But I am thankful Ouidad steps up to the challenge. It's a soft hold with minimimal to no frizz (I don't mind a little frizz) and my hair loves it. Definitely is my go-to styler in the summer months and on rainy days!5
I absolutely love this product. I have super frizzy, dry, curly hair and this has done wonders for me. I've tried tons of other products to help with frizz and this by far works the best!5
This gel is insane! It does not feel like gel - more like a hair serum (after you dry you can't even tell you used gel) and it keeps all the frizzies and hot mess hair at bay until your next shower, even in hot, humid weather. This is my one Must-Have hair styling product! I have wavy hair and I use this before any styling - curly or straight - the product is good for all hair types.5
Have heard great things about Ouidad products and I have unruly curls so I've been using this product with another one I bought to help control the frizz of my hair during high humid recent Summer days. It's working great and doesn't leave the hair feeling crunchy!5
This is by far my favorite curl controller. Leaves them perfect with no crunch. My hair does not frizz up at all during the day, even in the hot humid summer.5
I have wavy hair, not curly, and have learned to let it ringlet up in the rain or humidity, rather than try to fight it straight (which never works). I like the way this product dries soft and keeps my head from looking frizzy - I get loose, soft, pleasant curls instead of a head of static. I comb my hair out, apply with my fingers, and then scrunch into ringlets or just let it curl as it dries, and I think it also helps keep the curls looking nicer - if left to their own devices, they'll be uneven, but I think they look nicer and more even with this product. I like the smell and the ease of use and it works all day long.5
the first time I tried this, I was not convinced that I liked it. Later, after I learned how to rake through my hair, it's become a staple, no matter what else is going in my hair, this is usually my base layer, I find it controls frizz and has some hold (but it's a light hold for my 2c/3a fine hair)5
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.5
