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.
• 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.
