Ouidad NEW Advanced Climate Control Line! and Discount!

Ouidad just launched their new Advanced Climate Control line! They improved on their already existing shampoo, conditioner and gel formula and added an ant-frizz spray to the line. I've had the products for quite a while now and have been waiting to tell you all about them! Read on for more.



If you remember my blog post from January when I was at the Ouidad NYC Flagship Salon for my cut, I mentioned I got a sneak peek of upcoming products. Well, these are them! You can see that blog post here.

 Here is what Ouidad.com says about the line:
"Buoyant, brilliant, best: No matter the climate, Advanced Climate Control keeps curls defined and frizz free. Our advanced Anti-Frizz Nano Technology locks in moisture and locks in moisture and locks out humidity, for stronger, softer, silkier curls.

Thanks to its small molecular size, Sericin Nano Protein Technology creates a better sealing effect versus traditional proteins. Every strand gets powerful protection, locking in moisture and locking out humidity. It's the ultimate defense for everyday, long-lasting silky curls."
* My bottle of the new Climate Control Gel didn't have a label so I didn't put it in the picture ;)

I also spoke to my hair stylist from the Ouidad NYC Flagship Salon, Stylist & Lead Educator, Jason Hallman, about the new line and he had lots of good things to say! He confirmed to me that the new Advanced Climate Control formulas will be replacing the old ones, they are not in addition to. He also confirmed to me that all of the silicones inside these products are water soluble, as are all the silicones in Ouidad's products since it is their brand philosophy to always be water soluble.

Here is what else he said:
"The formula [of the new products] is the same, it just has nano technology which is little small silk proteins that bind to the gaps in the hair shaft which give a softer 2nd day look more than that wet crunchy first day look.
Also, it's a system, so if you use the whole system you get maximum frizz protection from humidity.

Recently, curl consumers have been reaching for creams moreso than gels. So in the industry we wanted to improve the formula to allow clients who don't search for gel to use a gel that literally feels like it's silk. We wanted to improve our star product to reach out to consumers who want more of a second day look instead of that hard set gel look."

Jason and I back in January
As you will read in my review below, I completely agree with Jason on how this gel does not feel like a gel at all, in a good way!

Advanced Climate Control Defrizzing Shampoo
Them: "Frizz defense starts in the shower with our sulfate-free shampoo, which gently cleanses and respects your curls' natural protective barrier. Create the perfect frizz-free foundation without stripping moisture to enhance curls' shape and shine."

Me: This sulfate free shampoo lathers nicely and even feels a bit moisturizing! It did a nice job cleansing my hair and scalp and prepping it for the conditioner and stylers to follow. It didn't strip my hair, but I definitely knew I needed to follow up with more moisture. This is a very nice shampoo.

Advanced Climate Control Defrizzing Conditioner
Them: "Curls crave moisture. Without proper hydration, they'll try to take it from the atmosphere, raising the cuticle and causing frizz. Stop frizz before it starts by infusing your curls with our advanced blend of rich emollients. Our cocktail of Shea and Murumuru Butters, plus Ceramides, repairs and moisturizes every curl from root to end.

Me: Since I generally prefer using masques or deep conditioners since my hair is SO DRY, I double checked with Jason and he said that this conditioner also works great as a leave in, so that is how I used it. This conditioner is very thick, to the point it is a tad difficult to get out of the bottle! I actually love that since my genetically thristy hair loves richer formulas like this. I've used this a couple of times and it makes my hair really easy to detangle, while leaving it silky soft and enhancing my curl pattern.


Advanced Climate Control Detangling Heat Spray
Them: "Spritz, prime, protect: Our Detaling Heat Spray with a protective UV flter locks in moisture and defends against everyday damage caused by heat, styling and humidity."

Me: I am especially excited to see a spray with UV protectors in it. Years ago Ouidad had a product called Sun Shield that I loved using to protect my hair in the Summer at the beach and in the pool. But it was sadly discontinued. I plan on using this in it's place this Summer! This spray also protects from blowdryer heat. It works nicely and while air drying my hair, I notice less frizz and nice shine. But my favorite way to use it is as a heat protector for the times I diffuse. It is very lightweight and feels like nothing in the hair. I also have used this to refresh second day hair and it tamed some frizz and added shine. This is a nice multi-tasking product. The spray also contains Grapeseed, Sweet Almond, Macadamia Nut, Coconut, Argan, and Safflower Oils to noruish and moisturize the hair.

Advance Climate Control Heat and Humidity Gel
Them: "Our signature award-winning Heat and Humidity Gel has now been upgraded to include Anti-Frizz Nano Technology for advanced frizz protection and our longest-lasting curl definition ever. This weightless gel has a flexible hold that won't leave hair crunchy, sticky or weighed down."

Me: The Tress Effects Gel was always my favorite but this newly formulated Climate Control is giving it a serious run for the money. It has the perfect amount of hold without leaving my hair stiff or crunchy, cuts down on frizz when paired with the spray and seriously increases my curl definition! This gel also has UV protection and fights against unwanted volume. It does not feel like a gel at all. I feel like it actually has more of a serum consistency, which is great. This gel also feels super light in my hair, I don't even feel it there!

The Hair of the Day below I used all Ouidad Products! Here is what I used:
  • Cleanser: Advanced Climate Control Defrizzing Shampoo
  • Conditioner: Curl Recovery Melt Down Extreme Repair Mask
  • Stylers: Advanced Climate Control Defrizzing Conditioner, Advanced Climate Control Detangling Heat Spray, Advanced Climate Control Heat and Humidity Gel, Mongongo Oil
  • Stylers (dry): Clear Control Pomade

I applied the products the same way I usually do, using Ouidad's "Rake and Shake" technique and then scrunching. I then plopped for a while in my Curl Ease towel and air dried completely.

It was a gorgeous Spring Day so we took advantage of the weather and took pictures in the yard! And then I took more upstairs near my favorite lighting window.
caught off guard here


As a whole, the new Advanced Climate Control system is really good!! The biggest thing I notice is the incredible definition it brought out in my waves. Also, my frizz was minimal, though not completely gone when air dried. Honestly I've never see my hair 100% frizz free so I wasn't expecting that. My hair was left soft and shiny and also not weighed down at all but my dreaded pouf was tamed! I like how the system moisturizes my hair with just the right amount without being overdone and knowing my curls are also protected from the elements. My head also feels lighter, which is a great plus! I got great second day hair also that needed minimal touching up whenever I used the system together, especially.

Although lately I have been using more "natural based" products, I don't mind the fact there are water soluble silicones in here. It's not a deal breaker since they are water soluble, and I do clarify at least once a month anyway.  It's because of my love of Ouidad products I can never commit to be fully on "The Curly Girl Method" The products give me too great of hair days to ever consider not keeping them in my product junkie rotation!

  2. Hi Diane - thank you for inspiring me in several ways: 1) you reminded me about Ouidad Climate Control and the Rake and Shake method. I used years ago but switched to the DevaChan method and since have been searching for a product and technique that will hold up in all conditions. Not sure if this is the one, but at least it has been a consistent performer for the last week. 2) We have almost the same hair! Length and all. I am going through a long growth journey that will be almost a year in May.

    Onto the question. Would you recommend/explain a second day hair routine and relatively easy to find, relatively inexpensive products that can be done without Q-renew? Thank you

    Marcie
