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:

    Put this product in WET hair right out of the shower. Comb and add more gel and scrunch to the roots. Once it is finished dripping - add a little more to the sides. I also like to mix mouse, Diva AnGel, and or BioSilk(tiny amount) to the second (right after combing) application of the gel.
    I regularly get asked to tell people the products I use. I hope this helps!

      Comments about Ouidad Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel:

      I have very thick, heavy, coarse, wavy, and poofy hair with a mind of it's own. I don't like letting it dry natural unless it's the colder months with super low humidity. Other than that, it always looks weird. I don't us the climate control gel the way it was intended. After washing and conditioning my hair I towel dry it and then I add the amount of maybe a little more than a quarter in my palm, rub my hands together and distribute through my hair. I may add a tiny bit more to the front of my hair because that is what gets the most abuse. I usually let my hair air dry for 15-30 minutes then i blow dry it straight with a round brush. It works and looks better than any "straightening serum" I have used, it doesn't get greasy, and I can go about 3 days before my next hair wash, which says a lot in a Florida Summer climate. I don't wear my hair pin straight and I don't use a flat iron but this makes it look polished and frizz free.

                          I have curly hair that I like to straighten. I have been using coconut oil mixed with conditioner and water in a spray bottle when I use my Chi iron. The only problem is when the humidity is too high here in Georgia my hair will frizz and even start to curl back up close to the roots. Does this product help with that?
