It’s no big secret that girls with curly hair struggle with frizz. This is true no matter the climate or temperature outside. As a curly girl, I have found that using the right products help immensely when it comes to controlling frizz. I have also found that it is very beneficial to use products that are designed as a system. Products that come in the system are designed to work well with each other on a molecular level, so you will mostly likely get better results; the ingredients do not conflict.
Most recently, I tried Ouidad humidity control shampoo, conditioner and gel and I have to say that I LOVE it.
Climate Control Shampoo is a gentle, defrizzing formula that provides long-lasting protection from texture trouble like frizz, flyaways and unwanted volume. Free from sulfates, which can be damaging to the cuticle, this shampoo empowers curls with a breathable humidity shield that locks in moisture and seals out frizz.
Defrizzing Conditioner creates a lightweight humidity shield that locks moisture into curls and blocks out frizz. Amino acids help fill up the cuticle with moisture to form a breathable, weightless layer of protection and make curls frizz resistant.
An infusion of natural nourishing extracts (Almond, Henna Leaf, Chamomile, Kiwi) helps Curls achieve the perfect balance of moisture to restore internal weight. Water-soluble polymers then seal in this vital moisture, creating a barrier that locks out frizz without build-up, or any greasy residue. Curls form with definition, natural feel and movement, and the ultimate frizz protection – and stay that way.
Ouidad products are known for working wonders on curly hair, so I had very high expectations for this product system and happily, all of them were met. My hair was soft and moisturized and held it’s curl very well (and with out frizz) for three days before I needed to reapply product.
I also liked the fact that my hair felt soft and moisturized after just the shampoo and I felt that I almost didn’t need the conditioner. The conditioner took moisture content in my hair to the next level without making it fragile. The gel was the perfect way to cap off this product line. It wasn’t sticky at all, and added shine to my hair with out making it hard or crunchy.
These products work very well together and deliver lasting results. It also doesn’t take an entire bottle to get the job done like with other brands. I also like the fragrance of this line. It’s not overwhelming, but rather it’s pleasant. And I can’t say how much I love the fact that the gel isn’t sticky!
The line is pricier than most, but in my opinion, that is off set by the fact that a little product goes a long way.
