So now that summer is coming I believe it's time to add Ouidad's climate control and humidity gel to my routine. The problem is, Im not sure when to add it. When I come out of the shower I first use a conditioning balm (matrix biolage) then I use organix moroccan curling perfection defining cream and then I finish with a dollop of original frizz ease hair serum. So where would be the best place to add Ouidad humidity gel so that I get the best results?? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

I'm definitely a "curly" 2c. Sometimes curly and sometimes just wavy upper layer with a ringlety under layer. My hair has been thick and coarse since birth. Strawberry blonde in color that can and does change depending on the type and amount of light.


All in all, I'm happy with my hair type but almost for sure think yours is prettier.
Yeah, I would like to know the answer to this question, too - where in the product lineup does one add an anti-humectant...

I don't have any familiarity with these products in particular, but usually if I'm using an anti-humectant I add it right over my leave in. That way if the products I'm finishing with are heavier on the humectants, my hair is sort of protected from any negative reaction.
2c/3a, dense, fairly coarse, normal porosity and elasticity, just below shoulder

Co-wash: down under naturals, tresume naturals

As far as where to add the Climate Control gel, I'd suggest trying it after your Organix curl cream and before your serum.Climate Control is water based, where Frizz Ease serum is not, so it makes sense to me to add the gel before serum. It also has more ingredients for "hold" than the curl cream, which is why I'm thinking it should go on in between the cream and the serum.

Okay so I used the Ouidad climate control gel after my leave in last night and my hair was okay today. It was humid out and didn't frizz too bad. But it's a little bigger than I'd like. Maybe I should try using it before my frizz ease like you Greek_Chic said
Seems like a lot of product to me...I often find that the more I put on my hair, the more the possibility that something will react adversely with the humidity, or that the products will react badly with one another...

You've got a lot of products there. I use the Ouidad gel and it's the only thing I use (well, aside from a leave-in conditioner). I put on my leave-in and then add my Ouidad, and viola. There really isn't a need for anything else.

Ouidad is a great curl definer, so IMO, if you're using it you won't need the Organix defining cream. Ouidad gives me awesome clumps and definition.

With Frizz Ease, again, IMO you don't need it. When I use Ouidad I don't get frizz (or if I do, it's very minimal).

Less is always more and if you overload your hair, it may end up looking frizzier than normal. Just try putting in your Matrix balm, then using Ouidad and not doing anything else and see what your results are like. I think you'll be surprised!
