Curly LocksLoose CurlsDehydration & DamageOctober 16, 2017I’ve used the previous climate control product for years and have been very satisfied with its performance. The new advanced product does not hold my curls after a period of time and I find I need to use much more product. Not so happy with this formula.
Return to the Original ProductLoose CurlsFrizzOctober 16, 2017I have successfully used the original climate control products for a number of years. Regardless of the humidity level - no frizz, hair manageable and the style held. This is not longer the case. The Climate Control Products no longer live up to their name in my opinion. I use the shampoo, conditioner and gel, and results are poor in comparison to the original product.
Must haveClassic CurlsFrizzOctober 12, 2017It works! You'll have more curl and less frizz.
No Frizz but hardTight CurlsFrizzOctober 5, 2017This product works to prevent frizziness. The problem is it makes curls hard to the touch instead of soft.
Great!Tight CurlsFrizzOctober 3, 2017I love it! - Better than the original. I am surprised that some people feel that the original was better.
Bring Back the OriginalClassic CurlsFrizzOctober 3, 2017Like many others, the original Heat and Humidity Climate Control Gel was my go-to product for excellent hold and frizz control. I tried the Advanced formula and I saw less hold and frizz control. When I inquired if Ouidad was discontinuing the original, they said yes. When I said that I preferred the original, they recommended that I use a spray to help with hold. Why would I want to use two inferior products to replace one that worked perfectly. I will be looking for another curly hair product. I feel duped.
great styling productTight CurlsFrizzOctober 2, 2017I tried this product a long time ago and it works great, and lasts throughout my workouts. The ONLY downfall to this product is the price. So, I tend to bounce around with this product and other brands.
Great ProductClassic CurlsFrizzSeptember 24, 2017To me this is the best product i have used from ouidad. It totally controls the frizz from the high humanity weather that we have in southern CA. This is the best gel I have used for my hair.
Good but old formula was betterTight CurlsFrizzSeptember 22, 2017This is still a good product but the old formula was more effective. I got softer curls, better definition and more frizz control with the original. Missing my classic climate control gel. Trying other brands - something I haven't done n years because this used to be my perfect product.
Love This GelClassic CurlsFrizzSeptember 20, 2017This product is perfect for the hot humid days here in the south. Keeps my hair frizz free without being crunchy.
- 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
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.
Our 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. Our 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.
- How To Use
How To Use
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.
