I was worried at first that this was too heavy for my curls but I think I just needed to use a little less. Lisa

This product along with the rake and shake technique has been a game changer in my routine! The gel has great hold and works well alone. I end up with fabulous defined and frizz free curls! JEANETTE

I really enjoy the texture it gives my hair. Smooths everything out and gives me just the right level of control. And I love the scent of this product! Margaret

It really defines my curls giving them a great texture & wonderful hold with no frizz. It also smells great and I feel like it goes further than the climate control gel cause the formula is thicker but doesn't leave my hair feeling heavy or stiff but instead soft and shiny. Sarai

I use this product after I have used the Climate Control. This seems to help my curls hold their shape better. But, be aware that a little goes a long way! Jamie

Great for summer weather

I had used this product years ago, and then stopped and started using the original Climate Control Gel instead. Then, I took a sample of Tress-Effects with me to Turks & Caicos. I used the sample on my trip and LOVED the results! Tress-Effects kept my curls defined, shiny and frizz-free in the Caribbean humidity. And my hair was not crunchy at all! Now I switch off between using Tress-Effects and Moisture-Lock Leave-In, depending on the weather. debra

Just what I needed!!

I've always been against using gels in my curls. It usually leaves them sticky and crunchy. The Tress Effects gel rids my curls of all frizz and adds so much moisture!!! I always get the definition I'm looking for when I use Tress Effects. ARMANI

Not fond of smell

I like the advanced climate control better - I’m somewhat sensitive to scent and normally like the smell of Ouidad, but this one has put me off a bit. However, I do like the fact that it has fewer ingredients than many of their other products and I think they’re all curly girl friendly. Sue

One of my new faves!

I tried this instead of Climate Control and I have to say I really love it! It truly seems to help my curls chunk together and ring better. Tracy

I have used this gel for over ten years. I have tried other products and nothing holds my curls the way Tress Effects does. It will keep my curl pattern in place for several days in a row after using it. Will never use another gel.
People are always asking me about my curls and how I get them to look like they do. Tress Effects - period!! Casey

When you put effort into perfecting your curls, you want your style to last. It's all a matter of choosing the right product to help your curls go the distance.


We developed our Tress Effects® Styling Gel to help classic curls form perfect spirals, while keeping frizz at bay all day. With Hydrolyzed Collagen, Pro-Vitamin B5, and Clove Oil, our strongest hold gel helps to seal in the optimal amount of moisture for consistent, defined curls. And when refreshed with water, our Memory Interlock technology helps to reform the original curl pattern. You'll get maximum mileage out of your style, with every curl hydrated on the inside and smooth and shiny on the outside.

How To Use

How To Use

Apply using Ouidad's Rake & Shake technique. Divide damp hair into sections. Spread a nickel-size amount of gel through each section, with fingers separated like a rake. To ensure even distribution, begin at the nape of the neck, raking fingers through under-sections. 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.
