Light as a feather

 

Hi babes! Today I will be reviewing Ouidad’s “Advanced climate control feather-light styling cream. I have had the pleasure of previously trying and reviewing the entire Advanced climate control line. If you would like to read that post click the link: “Have a good hair day“. Thanks to Ouidad they sent me the newest product to the line.

My hair is semi curly. Meaning if left to its own devices I would look like I have a giant frizz ball on my head. So, I have to either straighten it or tame the frizz. My hair is extremely damaged to say the least from all the heat and coloring I have done to it.

However, thanks to Ouidad’s “advanced climate control” line, I can have natural curls without the frizz. My hair has been slowly restoring itself back to its former glory. I live in Florida and the humidity is something I have going against me. With this styling cream I can feel confident that my hair won’t go poof half way through it.

Anyone with curly hair will tell you that humidity is not your friend. The reason is that the structure of curly hair exposes the hair cuticles more than with straight hair. In a sense it leaves your hair vulnerable to unwanted volume, unruliness, and dullness.

The entire line helps combat this. The added benefit about the styling cream is that it does not weigh your hair down. It’s super light while leaving your hair feeling natural, without the  feeling like you have a ton of product in your hair.

The styling cream contain key ingredients that nourish your hair while sealing your cuticles to lock out humidity. It also has a UV filter to protect your hair against sun damage.

One of these key ingredients is Olive oil. This helps clean your scalp and tame your frizz. It also helps improve hair elasticity and helps prevent breakage. It also contains meadowfoam seed oil, which helps hydrate your hair and scalp. It also helps fight dandruff and aid with hair loss prevention. While soy bean oil helps your hair keeps its natural shine.

Like any product if you want to get the best results, use as directed. Ouidad has a good video on their site on they rake and shake technique. Here are the written directions to the technique: Divide damp hair into sections. Rake a nickel-size amount of cream through each section, using fingertips to seal and smooth the cuticle from roots to ends. When finished, hold the ends of hair in each section and shake to create curls. Let hair air-dry for more relaxed curls or blow-dry with a diffuser for more bounce.

Final results with combining the styling cream and their rake and shake technique:
