While I was on a mini vacation with my family I got to try the NEW Ouidad Advanced Climate Control® product line, which includes a Defrizzing Shampoo and Conditioner, a Detangling Heat Spray and a Heat & Humidity Gel.
I was in Honduras for a week and the daily weather was 100+ degrees, to say it was hot and humid is an understatement. We spent a lot of time outdoors and some time at the beach and pool (chlorine is my hair’s enemy) so this trip was definitely the ultimate performance test for Ouidad’s promise of frizz-free curls. Keep reading to find out my thoughts on this product line and don’t forget to enter the giveaway at the bottom of the page.
Current Hair Situation
My hair is naturally dry and very thin. I have a lot of heat damage (mostly in the front) from blow drying/flat iron, and I’m currently dealing with hair loss/thin hair due to low estrogen levels after giving birth. I also colored my hair right before this trip.
First Impression and Experience
When I used the Defrizzing Shampoo in the shower, I immediately noticed that my hair was curling up into ringlets – more than usual- and most importantly my hair still felt soft during the wash, which is something I am not used to with shampoos since they tend to harden and tangle my hair. I was also able to easily detangle my hair with the Defrizzing Conditioner and I left the shower with a head full of wet curls that look ready to go, which again is not something I’m used to. Once out of the shower I applied the Heat and Humidity Gel which was very light, not greasy or sticky and my hair still felt clean, I then used the Detangling Heat Spray and use the rake and shake technique for these last two steps and was ready to head out the door without any more styling. (Note: later I learned that the Spray goes before the gel, but I was still very happy with the results). The curls lasted and were moist and shiny all day until I went to bed, the next day I would refresh using a bit of the gel and heat spray.
I was very impressed and taken by surprised when I used Ouidad’s Advanced Climate control line because:
- I achieved curl ringlets in my entire head even though I have a lot of heat damage (didn’t think it would be possible, since the front of my head doesn’t curl very well)
- My curls never got frizzy in 100 degrees weather nor after submerging in salt water or chlorine and better yet, the curls were healthy-looking, moist and under control.
Ouidad Advanced Climate Control® lived up to its promise and required very little effort on my part – I literately just washed, applied and out the door. This line was the perfect vacation companion providing humidity and UV protection it is perfect for the summer and warm weather. I highly recommend it.
