FREE Ultra Nourishing Gel w/any $30 Ouidad purchase
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 have thick curly hair and perhaps I purchased this product in error for my hair type? Purchased this product due to travels to a very warm & humid climate. The results were frizzy & undefined curls. Very disappointing.

                    • 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

                    • 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.
