Humidity: It's every curl's nightmare. That's because curly hair's unique structure exposes its cuticle. When humidity gets in, curls expand with unwanted volume and look frizzy, undefined, and dull.

Ouidad's bestselling styler, Advanced Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel, gets you out of hair-raising situations. Use it to seal every strand, lock in moisture, and lock out humidity. Wheat protein and pliable styling polymers form a weightless flexible lattice that expands as heat or humidity rises to hold curl definition without frizz. Ouidad's high-performance anti-frizz nano technology with a protein derived from silk seals the cuticle to keep essential moisture in and humidity out. A dedicated UV filter helps protect against damage from environmental aggressors.

The result: Flexible hold that won't leave hair crunchy, sticky, or weighed down. Frizz-free, perfectly defined curls in any climate.

Apply using Ouidad's Rake & Shake technique. Divide damp hair into sections. Rake a nickel-size amount of gel through each section, using fingertips to seal and smooth the cuticle from roots to ends. When finished, hold the ends of hair in each section and shake to create curls. Let hair air-dry or blow-dry with a diffuser.

Expert Tip: Fighting frizz starts in the shower with Advanced Climate Control Defrizzing Shampoo and Conditioner for better curl definition and longer lasting frizz protection.

medium hold and frizz control for wavy hair in summer

    Comments about Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel:

    I hated the previous version of this gel; it smelled like hair products from the 80s, and provided firm hold but not firm enough to tolerate the producty feel/look I got with it. This version is much better: medium rather than firm hold, but smells better, controls frizz better in high humidity, and leaves hair feeling soft/touchable. For my hair type (2B wavy + 3A curly, medium texture), I get best results using a strong curl cream underneath, so that I don't need as much hold from the gel to maintain definition. My current HG summer combo is Redken Curl Refiner (2 quarter-size), plus Redken Full Swirl (2 pumps), plus Ouidad advanced humidity gel on top (4 quarter-size) for my long layered hair (bra strap length when wet). I diffuse then top with Ouidad Mongongo oil once dry (which doubles as my HG finishing product for when I straighten my hair). My hair still wilts somewhat when outside in high humidity--so this isn't perfect--but it doesn't get super-frizzy, and I can re-wet once back inside to restore definition. 2nd and even 3rd day hair is passable if I leave it down: which is hard to accomplish in summer humidity. I can even brush my hair through (with all these products in it) and my hair remains soft and doesn't look producty. By comparison, the other 9 months of the year (when humidity is lower), I use Catwalk Curls Rock Amplifier (two pumps), plus some KC spiral spritz once dry (for added definition).

        This doesn't give hair the crunchy look that most gels do. Instead it leaves my wavy hair soft and frizz-free.

          Comments about Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel:

          I tried this gel because I had heard good things about the climate control line from Ouidad. I have only used it once, and while it does decrease frizz, I felt like it didn't have enough hold. My day one curls were okay, but the second day I noticed more frizz and the gel didn't seem to hold the curl as well as other products I've used like Miss Jessies or Devacurl gels. I will still use it again and see if it works better if used in conjunction with another product like a cream or butter.

                    A:

                    The main difference is a new nano technology that locks in moisture and locks out humidity, for stronger, softer, silkier curls.
