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 have mixed feelings about this product - I do think it works well as a frizz tamer, but it asks that you put such a ton of it in your hair that your hair ends up sticky.

Kind of works
Sampled

This works fairly well if you use their application technique. However, their technique doesn't get my hair curly and you have to have time to air dry your hair. It didn't work well for me using any technique but the one they recommend

Great product

This product works great! I have thick curly hair and with the humidity it can get real big and frizzy. This product helped tame it

Another fantastic Ouidad product
Sampled

I have curly hair and have hated it when Birchbox sent me a curly hair tamer type thing since I normally blow my hair out so it won't be curly. Last month I got my hair cut in what's fashionably called a "curly bob" which just means that people like me can get a bob and don't have to screw with blowing it out. SO I thank God for this product. Put it on your damp hair, rake it through from root to tip and leave the house with damp hair if you want. This whole concept is foreign to me. I've used products that proclaimed to do this before, but never used them twice. My only choice has always been, blow dry straight or plop on top of your head until dry then enjoy your curls. The actuality of putting something in my hair that works keeping my individual curls individual and not frizzy or messy is a little bit of heaven.

Not too impressed

It did help with humidity control, but it made my curls crunchy rather than soft.

Light gel

I was initially nervous because the consistency was watery, but to my surprise this was actually a good thing. I have super curly hair. This gel helped defined the curls without making it crunchy. It didn't stand up to the East coast humidity, but I love it here in LA!

When I wear my hair curly, I'd much rather use a cream or wax. Gels just don't work for me. I have slightly thin hair, and they usually weigh it down and I end up with a crunchy '90s mess. Plus, the smell of this is super matronly. Very powdery and not my style.

All you have to do is "rake and shake"
Sampled

I really love using this product, especially on humid days. Unlike some other products for curly hair, this product works on very damp hair, damp hair, and slightly damp hair. The "rake and shake" process for applying this product is easy and quick. Rake some through a section of hair, hold the section at the end, and shake. I recommend this product.
