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.

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.

Amazing gel for naturally curly hair!!!

I have tried just about every type of gel known to man for my curly hair. I want something that defines the curl, holds, without being super stiff or heavy feeling. This is the PERFECT gel. It controls the curl (and tampers the frizz) and it still feels light and bouncy. I love it so much, it's my now my gel of choice!

A little heavy but
Purchased

I have the baby fine, thin, curly hair...this product made my hair look goddess like again. I thought it would make my hair lose curl but just the opposite and the style held until I washed it out. What more can you ask for?

No more frizzies

I have fine straight hair but those frizzies still seem to make there way into the spot light. After one use I noticed a difference. Even in the humidity my hair seem to be more controlable. My husband even noticed!

love it

I am always looking for something to tame the curls - especially as we get closer to summer. This gel works great with or without drying your hair

Works for straight hair blowout, too!

I have waist length hair that I blow out straight, and I live in an ultra humid location - received a sample of this and, wow, color me impressed! My towel dried hair blew out very quickly, and hours later there's still no frizz. Lighter than a gel, but heavier than a serum - I'll definitely order a full size bottle of this one.

works for me

I found this product to be quite helpful in taming my curls when visiting more humid climates. Also, a little goes a long way.
