Sachajuan’s Finish Cream is weightless and non-oily so it can be used on damp or dry hair. The cream helps to tame frizzy, fly-away strands and create definition, perfect for those super styled blow outs. The best part? The scent is just as alluring as the rest of the Sachajuan collection.
Balmain Hair Couture Argan Moisturizing Elixir
Balmain’s argan elixir can be used on damp hair before styling or on dry hair after a blow out. The elixir has an argan oil base that gives an immediate shiny, smooth result. Not only does the elixir prevent and fight frizz, but it repairs the locks from other environmental factors like UV rays and pollution, in addition to humidity.
Living Proof No Frizz Humidity Shield
After you get your mane properly styled, look to Living Proof’s frizz shield finishing spray to style and perfect your mane and, of course – prevent frizz. This finishing spray is weightless and doesn’t leave behind any build up or residue, just sleek, slayed strands.
Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray Strong
While it’s name suggests that it is a strong hold hair spray, don’t be fooled as the result is movable and frizz-free locks with zero residue. To use, spray about 10 inches away from your styled mane to create a shield to the humidity and to add shine to your strands.
IGK Laid-Back De-frizz and Anti-Static Spray
IGK’s Laid-Back Spray is a rare aerosol spray that can be used on dry or damp locks to prevent frizz. The spray gets rid of pesky fly-aways so you can lay back and have zero worries about maintaining your perfect blow out. The best part?
