Is Ouidad  Advanced Climate Control Heat and Humidity Gel cg?  First of all, I thought it had no glycerin, so that would be good in high humidity, but it does have glycerin way down on the list of ingredients.  Now I wonder if it is cg.  I really am trying to go cg and watching my ingredients!  Here are the ingredients:

Aqua (Water), Butylene Glycol, Polyquaternium-28, Sericin, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Actinidia Chinensis (Kiwi) Fruit Extract, Lawsonia Inermis (Henna) Extract, Wheat Amino Acids, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein/PVP Crosspolymer, Tocopheryl Acetate, Retinyl Palmitate, Panthenol, Polyquaternium-7, Guar Hydroxypropyltrimonium Chloride, Behentrimonium Chloride, Cetrimonium Chloride, PEG-60 Almond Glycerides Glycerin, PPG-26-Buteth-26, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, VP/DMAPA Acrylates Copolymer, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Potassium Sorbate, Disodium EDTA, Hexylene Glycol, Caprylyl Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin, Phenoxyethanol, Parfum (Fragrance), Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Benzyl Benzoate, Benzyl Salicylate, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Citronellol, Hexyl Cinnamal, Hydroxycitronellal, Limonene, Linalool.

2/c Coarse hair med. density.

I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....

    Hi , curlypearl-pal
    Do you know how your curls respond to polyquats in stuff ?
    I find products with those leave my curls gummy/ leave buildup just as much as silicones. Due to polyquats have cationic charge structure.

    Yep, it's CG.  Just a caution about the polyquats, as said above.  The glycerin is low on the list.  A lot of people who avoid glycerin say that as long as it's not in the top 5 ingredients, then there's too little to worry about.

    Hi MorrisonFan91 and Guide65 - Thanks for responding!  ❤️ I feel a little silly because I have been on nc.com for so many years - you would think I know enough about ingredients, but there is always more to learn.  Great information about the polyquats - which I actually didn't know, and I'm glad to know the little amount of glycerin isn't a problem.  Love this community!

    I’m sorry off topic but how do I start a discussion/ make a post? I’m new to the website 
  • Guide 65Guide 65 Posts: 1,984Registered Users, Moderators Curl Virtuoso
    @Me123, start by going into the category you want to post in - like "hair type 2" or "General Discussion".  There's a list on the right hand side.  Then at the top right of the page, there's a button that says "Start Discussion".  It's a black rectangle with white letters.   You'll get a drop down menu, so choose either New Discussion, New Poll, or Ask a Question.  And then from there you can type in whatever you want. 

    And welcome!
