Humidity: It's every curl's nightmare. That's because curly hair's unique structure exposes its cuticle. When humidity gets in, curls expand with unwanted volume and look frizzy, undefined, and dull.

Ouidad's bestselling styler, Advanced Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel, gets you out of hair-raising situations. Use it to seal every strand, lock in moisture, and lock out humidity. Wheat protein and pliable styling polymers form a weightless flexible lattice that expands as heat or humidity rises to hold curl definition without frizz. Ouidad's high-performance anti-frizz nano technology with a protein derived from silk seals the cuticle to keep essential moisture in and humidity out. A dedicated UV filter helps protect against damage from environmental aggressors.

The result: Flexible hold that won't leave hair crunchy, sticky, or weighed down. Frizz-free, perfectly defined curls in any climate.

Apply using Ouidad's Rake & Shake technique. Divide damp hair into sections. Rake a nickel-size amount of gel through each section, using fingertips to seal and smooth the cuticle from roots to ends. When finished, hold the ends of hair in each section and shake to create curls. Let hair air-dry or blow-dry with a diffuser.

Expert Tip: Fighting frizz starts in the shower with Advanced Climate Control Defrizzing Shampoo and Conditioner for better curl definition and longer lasting frizz protection.

    Comments about Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel:

    I saturate with product when hair is wet scrunch into wave pattern with Microfiber towel. I don't rake and shake as they show as my hair is not thick enough for that I like thicker waves and ringlets. I let it air dry or diffuse if in a hurry or in winter. If I don't break it up after dried its like a setting gel. it will last until the next day like I just washed it. Saves me time in the morning and no frizz. Important to use as your last styling layer can use hairspray when dry if needed for lift. Smells nice and clean not overpowering.

          If you have curly or wavy hair with some added frizz then this is for you. Have used so many gels I cannot keep count .Quidad is the best of the best! Keeps your style in, doesn't weigh the hair down and fights the most humid climates ( and rainy days too!) Once you use this gel you won't need to change hair gels again!

              Would this be appropriate for fine, thin straight hair that goes limp in humid Florida?

                A:

                All of our formulas are formulated for curly hair but it would lock out humidity in straight hair as well.

                Hello!

                To break up a cast, use a pea-size amount of Ouidad's Clear Control Pomade to soften hold and eliminate stiffness.

                Hello, this gel works for all hair types.
                Some key benefits are:
                Defines curls with flexible hold – won't leave hair crunchy, sticky, or weighed down
                Locks out humidity and helps protect curls from heat and UV damage
                Prevents frizz, flyaways, and unwanted volume

            • Q:

              I have wavy, fine 2B/2C hair with curlier hair below and straighter on top. After my shower, I put a heat/humidity gel from Ouidad on wet hair, John Frieda touch up creme and hair spray on dry hair. My hair looks good until a few hours later when the waves have completely fallen out and have frizzed.

              I'm wondering what I'm doing wrong or what product am I missing?

                A:

                Hello,

                After applying the Heat & Humidity Gel, spray damp hair with Ouidad's Finishing Mist Setting & Holding Spray to add extra hold. Follow with your regular air-dry, diffuser or blow-dry. If you're looking for a defined curl that will last all day (or several days), VitalCurl™ Tress Effects® Styling Gel is the strongest hold gel in Ouidad's line.
