The Queen of Curls addresses your curly hair questions

Ouidad Climate Control

Q: Do styling products help to combat frizz, or just temporarily mask the appearance?

Ouidad: The right kind of styling products with the right ingredients can absolutely help combat and treat frizz. A gentle shampoo and conditioner is very important so it won’t dry the hair more. But, the most important thing to do to your hair is by feeding it—in other words, using a deep treatment every two weeks to help re-build the internal layer of the hair and give it it’s own weight so it will not react to humidity, causing frizz!

The best styling products should be designed especially to work with the humidity. Look for products like Ouidad Climate Control that contain vitamin, A, E and B and fruit extracts to keep moisture in the hair.
