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 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.

perfect!
Purchased

I have long, wavy hair that I flat iron in my dry climate, but I let it go natural whenever I go to humid places... Why fight a losing battle :-) This is an amazing product: tames frizz, makes curls bouncy, isn't sticky or crunchy, and doesn't require a diffuser to keep hair from being flat. I am going to buy additional samples to keep in my travel bag- one pack lasted for four uses. Plus, I love that it is pretty inexpensive for a full sized bottle!

A Hit with my curly haired sister!

I have straight hair so I passed this sample along to my curly haired sister. She enjoyed the "rake and shake" instructions and said the product worked well. She left her hair natural with no heat styling at all and it controlled the frizz very well. She said she would purchase this again.

Excellent Product
Purchased

I have been using this product for years. Every time I try to switch to something different I am not satisfied with the results. I have very long curly hair and this gel helps tremendously with frizz and puffiness.

good standby

If I'm going to wear it curly, I want it to look soft and subtle and inviting to others fingertips. This was not consistent through my hair. Some strands loved it and puckered to it's touch others were left limp. If your willing to put the work into pin it into place and letting it set, this is a good product. It works just not as good as Pillow Soft Curls for me.
