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.

                I tried a sample of this product and really enjoyed it. I put it on prior to blow drying my hair and i felt it kept my frizziness at bay! It lightweight and doesn't have a smell. A little goes a long way. It doesn't weigh your hair down. I need to play with it and see how it hold up on days I let my hair air dry.

                  I have frizz-prone 2b/c hair and was looking for a product to help fight frizz and "puffing" of my hair during the humid summer months. Initially, I was only using this product on days I knew the weather would be humid and using Garnier's Curl Shaping Spray Gel the rest of the time. I was not particularly impressed until I used the Garnier product on a humid day and realized that the Ouidad product really was making a difference on those humid/rainy days!

                    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

                    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?

                      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!
