Ouidad's "smart" gel, formulated with heat-activated wheat protein that breathes in humidity, protects the hair shaft and prevents hair from expanding. Its water-soluble formula of amino acids and Vitamin A nourish and hydrate hair, leaving it soft, manageable and full of shine without any buildup. Even the most unruly curls are rendered calm, cool, and collected with style that will last and last. Also works as great protection against blow-dryer heat when a straight style is preferred.

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 got a tiny bottle of this product when I bought the PlayCurl set and it will be my new go to. I use it with the PlayCurl foam and spray and it works like a dream. Rake it through your hair and then air dry or use a diffuser to make it set more quickly. It will be a bit crunchy when it dries but scrunch your hair a few times and the crunch goes buh-bye and you are left with gorgeous, soft, curls. I'm headed out today to purchase a full size bottle. <3

                For all curly girls, especially those who live with humidity, this stuff really works if you use it right. Iove ouidad products. After years of being poodle girl, I finally tried this and learned how to do the rake and shake method. Set use leave in conditioner too and then use this gel and keep your hands out of you hair till it dries! Gently turn your head upside down and give a light massage to the scalp and your curls will fall into place.

                • 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?

                    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!

                    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.
