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.

      I love it. My hair craves it. It smells so clean. It is a bit pricy, but worth it. Holds really well. But it would be nice if it was more affordable.

        My hair type is fine, wavy 2b/2c hair that is susceptible to frizz and puffiness. I use this gel during humid summer days. I know it works because if I don't use it, my curls and waves look awful.

              I ran out of this gel awhile ago, so I tried some other products. I have curly/wavy long hair and I live in super humid SoFla. Many products are "good" but I still wind up with frizz and not happy with my hair. Just went to ULTA and they had this gel AND it was on sale... my hair was so EXCITED to have this awesome product again!! It's so easy to use and work thru my hair, and my hair looks and feels great again! Love this product!!

                I've used Ouidad for years and this is one of my favorites. I have long, thick, curly hair. I usually air dry my hair for a while and then use the hair dryer to get the crunchiness/wet look off my hair. Not a problem for me because it would take all day for my hair to completely air dry it is so thick.

                        To break up a cast, use a pea-size amount of Ouidad's Clear Control Pomade to soften hold and eliminate stiffness.

                        Hello, this gel works for all hair types.
                        Some key benefits are:
                        Defines curls with flexible hold – won't leave hair crunchy, sticky, or weighed down
                        Locks out humidity and helps protect curls from heat and UV damage
                        Prevents frizz, flyaways, and unwanted volume

                    • Q:

                      I have wavy, fine 2B/2C hair with curlier hair below and straighter on top. After my shower, I put a heat/humidity gel from Ouidad on wet hair, John Frieda touch up creme and hair spray on dry hair. My hair looks good until a few hours later when the waves have completely fallen out and have frizzed.

                      I'm wondering what I'm doing wrong or what product am I missing?

                        Hello,

                        After applying the Heat & Humidity Gel, spray damp hair with Ouidad's Finishing Mist Setting & Holding Spray to add extra hold. Follow with your regular air-dry, diffuser or blow-dry. If you're looking for a defined curl that will last all day (or several days), VitalCurl™ Tress Effects® Styling Gel is the strongest hold gel in Ouidad's line.
