Ouidad New Product Review

Sponsored by Ouidad

I’ve written before about the challenges of growing up with curly hair.  It took me years to find products that worked for my hair type.  All curly hair is different and not all products work for my hair type.  The one product I can not live without is Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel.  I have been using it for over 18 years.  I’ve tried hundreds of products in between and nothing else works for me.  The only way I can wear my hair down is if I style with Climate Control’s Gel.  Ouidad was nice enough to let me try two of their new products before they even hit the shelves!  This is really exciting to me especially since I am such a fan of Ouidad’s products.  They sent me  Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Heat Humidity Gel Stronger Hold and Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Restore + Revive Bi-Phase.  I wasn’t sure what to expect but I love the results!!!

Below are pics of my hair throughout the day…(I am obviously not an experienced selfie taker.  Some are selfies and some are taken by my 10 year old!)

Clipped on the side and lovin it!

If you check out the video below it will explain a little about the technique you should be using when styling with either of the Climate Control gels.  Believe it or not that is what I do every time I style my hair.  It gets easier especially since I’ve been doing it for 20 years!  I’m a pro now.

My hair is very thick so it soaks up every product I use.  I have to use a lot in order for my hair to not get frizzy.  Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Heat Humidity Gel Stronger Hold was kind of amazing.  It seemed a little thicker to me but still a clear gel.  I didn’t have to use as much when I styled my hair.  It really coated every strand.  As much as I love the regular Heat Humidity Gel, I have to use a lot of it.  And when I style my hair it looks good, but half way into the day I always tie it back because it gets unruly or frizzy.  Keep in mind I live in Florida where it is hot and humid most of the year…  I am not lying when I say I was able to wear my hair down all day and it did not get frizzy.  It was 85 degrees and we had rain showers!  Ouidad also sent me the Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Restore + Revive Bi-Phase.  It is strong-hold hair mist that controls curls.  Because of my curly hair I wash my hair every other day.  This product was great to refresh curls  late in the day or the next day.  You spray it on the curls and scrunch them to nourish and hydrate the curls.  It’s perfect for the curls that tend to get frizzy.  On me, that is the underneath layer.  I really love this product as well. You do not have to use a lot.  Just for a touch up here and there.

Wide-Tooth Comb– I have one in the shower to comb my hair while the conditioner is in it and one when I get out of the shower to comb the detangler through.

Curl Clips-I use them to clip my hair in sections when I am styling it and to keep the roots raised when I am air drying it.

Diffuser-Wouldn’t attempt to dry my hair without it!

I'm a stay at home mom and my life revolves around feeding my family of four. I love to cook for my husband Matt and two boys(Matthew-11 and Dominick-9). I'm not good at entertaining big crowds. That makes me nervous! I TRY and cook healthy meals, and I TRY to buy organic. Matt likes almost everything except for olives, mustard and fancy cheeses-everything I love)! So I try to find recipes without those ingredients or sneak them into the food I make and then he picks them out... And when he likes something, he has no control. Can't stop. Won't stop! But he really tries to make good choices in what he eats. In the last five years or so we both have made changes for the better in our diet. Matthew eats very little and is very picky. It's hard to watch him eat cause he's always picking! My mom get's so annoyed watching him eat! I was the same damn way as a kid. I tortured my parents by becoming a vegetarian for 7 years! I still can't eat all meat. I'm picky. Dominick loves almost everything! And when he loves it, you know it. It's all over him and the floor. Unlike Matthew. Not a single crumb.... I am 100% Italian-I think.. I grew up in Long Island and always ate really great food!!! While the other kids in school were bringing Lunchables or buying lunch, I was eating a chicken cutlet sandwich! My mom is an amazing cook. Much better than me. I have to pull recipes and follow them. She just whips stuff up in minutes and its amazing! And my dad loves all of her food, and all food in general! Except if its too healthy, like salmon.... Most of the time when he's eating his eyes are closed. He says he can taste it better that way... My sisters both live in Long Island and our conversations usually consist of food, fashion, beauty or kids. Ali is similar to my mom. She whips up delicious meals. And they are usually healthy and light. She says she doesn't eat carbs, which is a lie. Every weekend shes at the pork store picking up twisted Italian bread, sausages, and ravioli. Her eyes light up when her 2 year old Joseph eats. Her goal in life is to feed him. And she hates casseroles. Refuses to make them. Lol Jen is very busy as a dance mom with her two girls. But when she gets in the kitchen, watch out! She cooks up a storm. Her salads are the BEST ever! Usually, it's accompanied with steak and rice or fried chicken cutlets! And there are leftovers for the whole week. The goal of my blog is to share some of my family's favorite foods. I'll let you know what works out well and not so well for me when it comes to feeding the fam!
