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.

Just turned into a holy grail product for me

Comments about Ouidad Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel:

This product left my curls very soft, defined and with the least amount of frizz I've seen in my hair. My hair always has frizz no matter what product I use but this product actually left little frizz. I also like that for a gel, it does not leave my curls crunchy.

My #2 favorite gel everrrr! (For curly hair)

By Dontcallmedesi

from Fort Worth, Texas

Verified Buyer

Comments about Ouidad Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel:

I use this for my wash and goes when it gets warm. I live in Texas so humidity is almost an everyday thing here. This gives me a great hold, works with humidity, is crunch free which allows the volume I love, and smells great!!!! One bottle has lasted me over a year (I still have the original bottle I bought plus the one I snagged on sale for 50% off!!)

  • Q:

    Is a cleansing conditioner (co wash) sufficient to wash this gel off or does it require a sulfate shampoo in order to not create build up? Does it contain non water soluble silicones? I really can't tell from the list of ingredients

    • Staff Expert

      A:

      Curl Co-Wash (Item #: 2252217) can effectively remove the Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel from your hair. This product is silicone-free.

  • Q:

    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?

  • Q:

    Can you use this product on wet hair with the Alterna Bamboo Anti-Breakage Heat Protectant Spray? If so, do I apply Ouidad Humidity Gel before or after the Bamboo Heat Protectant Spray? I'm just not sure if the gel will dismantle the Bamboo Heat Protectant.
    Asked on 8/18/2015 by Gianna from Fort Washington, MD

    • Staff Expert

      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!

  • Q:

    I plan on blending my natural hair with a kinky curly weave. Will this work against frizz for both my hair and the weave? And is this ok to use to help blend my hair with the curl pattern of the weave?
    Asked on 6/22/2015 by Jay from Philadelphia

    1 answer

    • Staff Expert

      A:

      We recommend consulting your stylist or the manufacturer of your weave regarding its proper care and at-home products. Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel will help to keep your natural hair frizz-free.

  • Q:

    Can you use this gel without using a blow dryer? Is there a good straightening gel? I just like to put the product in my hair, brush it back and let it dry. Sometimes I like it curly and sometimes straight.
    Asked on 5/9/2015 by Katy from Rotonda West, Florida

    1 answer

    • Staff Expert

      A:

      You can let hair dry naturally or blow-dry with a diffuser. Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel mainly functions to eliminate frizziness and does not alter your hair texture (won't straighten hair). Ouidad does not offer a straightening styling product.
