FREE Climate Control w/any $25 Ouidad purchase
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.

            This is not made for my texture hair, heavy thick curls. It has done absolutely nothing to form or hold my curls, and I've tried several styling techniques. May work for people with very thin, wavy hair. The big-brand curly competition is world's better.

                    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

                  • 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.
