If you have curly hair, then you know the extent to which products that effectively combat the effects of humidity, and which prevent frizz, are welcomed with open arms. Humidity causes frizz and fly-aways, and can transform beautiful soft ringlets into a fuzzy, frizzy mess. Therefore, I am thrilled to introduce everyone with curly tresses to the latest Ouidad launch– launching today, April 3m 2018– that further expands their Advanced Climate Control collection.

I have been testing the Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Stronger Hold Gel and the Advanced Climate Control Restore + Revive BiPhase, and am very impressed by their efficacy and ease of use.

“Curls have a language of their own.” - Ouidad
Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel Stronger Hold ($26.00 for 8.5 oz. from Ouidad): This mid-weight gel, which isn't sticky, fights frizz, repels humidity and offers hair strong hold to preserve curl patterns. It dries rather quickly, therefore if you have thick dense curls, you may need to dampen your hands with water to prevent the gel from setting before you are done styling. Unlike many strong hold gels, this one doesn't flake or become crunchy and unnatural looking. Thankfully, hair never looks as though it is heavily product-laden, or unnatural. Additionally, it enhances curls, leaves hair soft, gives hair a lovely shine, and it offers hair UV protection. It has a very light and pleasant aroma that fades quickly.

According to Ouidad,

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 Advanced Climate Control® Heat & Humidity Gel – Stronger Hold transforms uneven curl patterns into consistently formed, well-defined and frizz-free spirals. Anti-Frizz Nano Technology seals the cuticle to lock in moisture and lock out humidity. A dedicated UV filter helps protect against damage from environmental aggressors. The result: Defined, shiny, controlled curls – in any climate.

Features:
• Consistently defines uneven curl patterns with strong, long-lasting hold
• Locks out humidity and helps protect curls from heat and UV damage
• Prevents frizz, flyaways, and unwanted volume

Directions: 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.

Ingredients: Aqua (Water), Glycerin, Polyquaternium-11, PEG-75 Shea Butter Glycerides, Sericin, Wheat Amino Acids, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein/PVP Crosspolymer, Polyquaternium-59, Polyquaternium-10, PEG-60 Almond Glycerides, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Lawsonia Inermis (Henna) Extract, Actinidia Chinensis (Kiwi) Fruit Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate, Retinyl Palmitate, Panthenol, Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Polyquaternium-7, Behentrimonium Chloride, Cetrimonium Chloride, Polysorbate 20, Ethylhexylglycerin, Butylene Glycol, Disodium EDTA, Citric Acid, Hexylene Glycol, Caprylyl Glycol, Potassium Sorbate, Phenoxyethanol, Parfum (Fragrance), Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Benzyl Benzoate, Benzyl Salicylate, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Citronellol, Hexyl Cinnamal, Hydroxycitronellal, Limonene, Linalool.
Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Restore + Revive Bi-Phase ($32.00 for 6.8 oz. from Ouidad): This pretty pink bi-phase treatment, that you need to shake well to incorporate the ingredients, includes a cocktail of antioxidant-rich natural oils that nourish and moisturize the hair. The formula protects hair from free-radical damage while defining curls, fighting frizz and leaving hair shiny, soft and smooth. Furthermore, like the gel, it neither flakes, nor does it become crunchy and unnatural looking. There is a very light clean scent in the bottle, but I detected no fragrance in my hair.

According to Ouidad,

Extend your style another day with our two-in-one miracle mist, designed to redefine and reactivate your curl pattern as it eliminates frizz. Ouidad Advanced Climate Control® Restore + Revive Bi-Phase combines two high-performing formulas in one: The concentrated oil phase with Mongongo, Grapeseed, and Meadowfoam Seed Oils nourishes, plumps, and perfects curls for consistency and bounce. The Anti-Frizz Nano Technology phase seals hair’s cuticle to lock in moisture and lock out humidity. A dedicated UV filter helps protect against color fade, heat, and free radical damage. The result: Defined, shiny, frizz-free curls – in any climate..

Features:
• Nourishes and hydrates dry, damaged hair
• Reactivates curl definition and restores luster for day one shine
• Eliminates frizz and flyaways

Directions: Shake well. Mist all over dry hair, and scrunch to redefine the curl pattern and smooth frizz.

Ingredients: Water (Aqua), Cyclopentasiloxane, Isododecane, Propanediol, Glycerin, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Sericin, Limnanthes Alba (Meadowfoam) Seed Oil, Schinziophyton Rautanenii (Manketti) Kernel Oil, Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Propylene Glycol Dibenzoate, Neopentyl Glycol Diheptanoate, Benzophenone-4, Behentrimonium Chloride, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Cetrimonium Chloride, Laurtrimonium Chloride, Polyquaternium-7, Isopropyl Palmitate, Ethylhexyl Salicylate, VP/Dimethylaminoethylmethacrylate Copolymer, VP/VA Copolymer, Sorbitan Oleate, Magnesium Sulfate, Disodium EDTA, DMDM Hydantoin, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Fragrance, Benzyl Benzoate, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Hexyl Cinnamal, Hydroxycitronellal, Caprylyl Glycol, Butylene Glycol, Citric Acid, Phenoxyethanol, Red 17 (CI 26100), Violet 2 (CI 60725), Red 40 (CI 16035), Red 33 (CI 17200).
Overall Assessment: I am very impressed by these new products, and definitely recommend them to anyone with curly hair looking to define their curls, increase hold, fight humidity and tame frizz.
