Rated 4.27 out of 5 stars
I use Ouidad's humidity gel during humid summer days but I recently discovered this product. I'm obsessed. It's perfect for drier fall/winter days. My hair type is fine, wavy 2b/2c hair that is susceptible to frizz and puffiness. This creme handles that!
I've got naturally curly, frizzified hair and I'm forever looking for a product that can give me ringlets without making my hair dry and crunchy. This isn't it. It works well enough to banish frizz, but my hair is crunchy to the touch when it dries. I'd rather have touchable hair with some frizz.

Great product for hard to control hair without crunchy feel after using

Leaves hair greasy and gross feeling. Very disappointed in this product as a whole.

I'm a firm believer in Ouidad styling products, and this is my favorite. I used to use Advanced Climate Control Gel, but it left my hair a little too crisp. One of the staff members at ULTA recommended trying this curl cream instead. It is exactly what my dry, graying, 3A curls need for definition and control! I can dampen my hair on second or third day and continue to get defined curls. It works equally well in midwestern winters and summers.

I love the fact that it's the first styling cream that works for me, I have wavy hair and other creams would be too greasy and they just would not work. I use it after taking a shower, then I like to blow dry my hair just a little and the hair feels light, not greasy and I don't actually feel the product stick in my hands after touching my hair (this used to happen to me with other cream and mousses)

Truly the best curly hair product I've used. I have lose curls that look like waves of the products are too heavy. This paired with the climate control stronger hold gel is the best my hair has ever looked with the least amount of effort!!!! So impressed

My fine wavy hair turns into a giant frizzy poof in Florida. I wanted to tackle it this winter so I got the smaller size. It isn't perfume-y like the larger size reviewers mention. But I can't get it to control my frizz at all. I've tried using this alone and with different leave-in conditioners under it. It leaves my hair sticky and frizzier than if I let my hair air dry! I've tried using more. I've tried using less. This morning I've had it. My hair is so frizzy and sticky so I'm heading to Ulta to try something else.

This product worked exactly the way the directions said it would. Flexible hold for wavy or curly hair. My hair is very fine, but this did not weigh it down at all. I am very pleased. I also like that it came in a travel size so I could test it out before buying a larger container. Thumbs up!

Product is excellent at controlling humidity and flyaways. Leaves your hair shiny and manageable.

Wow the results I got after using this cream for the first time were amazing. I usually used mousse for my curls to be in shape & moisturized and this cream did all of it with a small amount. Even my hair remain manageable.
Jen from Huntington Bch
The smell is horrible! It smells like perm treatment and gives me a headache. Also weighs my hair down and makes it feel dirty. Leave in conditioner works better.
Juliana from Pensacola, FL
I have struggled with loving my curly hair for years. But fell in love with them again with Ouidad. Lightweight. Doesn't leave my hair greasy. And controls my curls and frizz. Will buy again!
TJ from NY
This works well for my 2c/3a hair. Giving it 4 stars because I'm not fond of the smell. Luckily whatever fragrance they use in the product doesn't linger in hair.

This is my second purchase of Ouidad Climate Control Featherlight Styling Cream! It's exactly what it's name says it is, and it works super great on my a little longer than shoulder length, naturally curly, frizz prone hair, too! I use it on my freshly washed, damp hair, using just about a quarter sized dollop, and work it through my hair from roots to ends with my hair upside down, and, voila, my hair isn't frizzy or out of control, even on the most humid days! I'll usually let my hair air dry without touching it until it's fully dry afterwards! I'll definitely buy this product again and again!

I'm looking for alternatives to manage my curls & this has been great so far.
I bought a travel size of this a few months ago to see if it would be a better product for me than Advanced Climate Control Gel, which leaves a slight cast if used alone on my hair, and just bought the full size. I have used this cream mixed with gel for windy days or extra definition with good results. I have also had satisfying results using this cream alone after a leave in conditioner. It responds well to second or third day refreshment with a little water or spray conditioner on my 2C/3A natural graying hair.

I am on a quest to find a product for wavy hair that consistently produces good results—this is NOT it. This product made my hair look like it hadn't been washed for days, and I only used a very small amount. I'm not quite sure how they call this light? It did nothing to enhance my natural curl pattern. The search continues…
Sarah from Dayton, OH
This cream is light but is heavily fragranced and dried my hair out.
KC from Texas
I was hoping for frizz control when I straightened my curly hair (i always wear it straight), so this review is specifically for straightening, not leaving curly. It felt good after I dried, but almost immediately began to puff up, so this didn't work well for me.
Heather D from Maumee, Ohio
This product is anything but lightweight. It absolutely weighed my hair down no matter how little I used. I noticed no difference in it helping with smoothing or humidity and I was really looking for a great humidity resistant product. This is not it. Disappointed. My hair is fine but I have a lot of it.
CurlieQ from San Jose
I use this product after I get out of the shower and run it through my wet hair. I have curly hair and this product keeps my hair in check, no frizzies and no stickiness!
Heather from Lancaster PA
I use this cream on soaking wet hair using praying hands. Thank I use the Ouidad gel, also on soaking wet hair by scrunching in the gel. This team of products works great for me
Rainy from Kansas
I thought I would like this since I love the advanced climate control gel, but I'm not impressed. I have fine 3a-b curls and they just looked a little too weighed down. Used a little less the second time and I ended up with frizz. I get much better definition and frizz control with the Curlsmith Feather-light Protein Cream.
Suzieh from NJ
The fragrance was overwhelming and did not dissipate over the day. I wish companies would stop making their products with overpowering scents! It did nothing for my frizz or curls either.
KA from NY
I recently got this product after finding that Devacurl has changed their ingredients. I already use the gel from this line but it definitely needs a cream with it. This can be a bit sticky but seems to help my curls keep their shape. The biggest downside is the smell… it is so powerful and doesn't go away. I'm thankful I haven't had a reaction with all of my allergies, but be careful if your sensitive to smells. For that reason alone I probably won't buy it again.
Kourtann82 from Illinois
First off, the smell is awful. It reminds me of mens cologne. Secondly, there was barely any hold or definition.
