Options

Ouidad Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel is an infusion of natural nourishing extracts (almond, henna leaf, chamomile, kiwi) helps curls achieve the perfect balance of moisture to restore internal weight. Water-soluble polymers then seal in this vital moisture, creating a barrier that locks out frizz without build-up, or any greasy residue. Curls form with definition, natural feel and movement, and the ultimate frizz protection - and stay that way.
Apply using Ouidad's Rake & Shake technique. When hair is still damp, divide into 4-6 sections. Spread a nickel size dollop through each section, with your fingers seprated like a rake. Rake section from scalp to ends, then holding the ends, shake hair back and forth to create curls. Repeat process for each section. Let hair dry naturally or blow-dry with a diffuser.

    Comments about Ouidad Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel:

    I have been using this product for about 9 years. I live in Virginia and have to deal with the humidity, especially in the summer. Some of the year I can get away with other cheaper products that give nice curl definition and enough hold for lower humidity days, but in the summer I have learned that I need Climate Control or my hair gets frizzier as the day goes on. I have very curly but not coarse hair so I cannot use anything that is too heavy. Climate Control is the only product I have found (and I've tried a lot!) that does the job of keeping my curls defined but not weighed down. As with any curly hair product, there is a learning curve so just play around with the amount you use (your hair will feel very wet), and scrunch it after it is mostly dry to make your hair soft. I can go three days in between washing with just wetting my hair.

          I like this product because I don't have to use a gel and mousse and hairspray to enhance the curl. It rinses out easily while not matting my hair.

            I have fairly curly thick hair. You need very little of this product applied to damp, clean hair. My hair air dries perfectly. No frizz, no crunch, nor oily feeling. I live in So Cal with some humidity but this works just as well in Hawaii with high humidity.

              I have wavy/curly hair (2b, 3a) that is fine, long (about shoulder-blade length) and thin density. I really did not like the smell of this gel, but more importantly, it didn't do much for my hair. For the price, it was not worth it. I like a gel to provide good hold and reduce frizz. I get better results from other products (Kinky Curly Curling Custard, DevaCurl Spray Gel, even LA Looks Sports Gel). I returned this gel to the store.

                        When layering with other products, always be certain that Climate Control Heat and Humidity Gel is the last product in contact with the hair. If using curl enhancers or heat styling tools on hair or to style curl, always have the temperature of your tool at a medium heat usually around 250 F, so as not to deplete the hair shaft of moisture, which will cause cuticle to open and hair to frizz, fly away, split or even damage. We hope these tips help!
