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.

                            A:

                            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!
