Summer is something so many people look forward to—the frizz that comes with it, on the other hand, is met with notably less excitement. While people with curly hair are often thought to have it the worst as soon as the humidity spikes, hair stylists are quick to note that anyone with dry, damaged strands can experience frizz. The reason? When hair is dry, individual strands stretch outward in search of moisture from the air. That’s why celebrity hairstylist Ro Morgan says that, when it comes to finding a frizz-fighting spray that works, moisture is a major determining factor.

“Anti-humidity sprays create a protective shield around the hair to help retain moisture and prevent frizz,” he explains. They’re able to do so thanks to the ingredients they’re formulated with. According to Morgan, the trick is to look for anti-humidity sprays infused with moisture-retaining ingredients like ProVitamin B5 (because the more moisturized your hair is, the less likely it is to seek moisture from its environment), and polymers (which are known to condition and smooth) to prevent hair from reverting back to a frizz-prone state.

The more you know, right? With this newfound knowledge in mind, we’ve gone ahead and rounded up five frizz-fighting sprays that won’t leave you hanging (or your hair sticking straight up) this summer.

5 frizz-fighting sprays to get you through summer

Color Wow Dream Coat Supernatural Spray Anti-Frizz Treatment — $28.00

If your goal is long-lasting frizz-prevention, Color Wow’s Dream Coat goes above and beyond. It’s my personal favorite anti-frizz spray, as it not only works to block humidity and prevent frizz, it acts as a heat protectant, too. And if I do say so myself, the results are pretty flawless.

I love Moon Landing by R+Co because it’s lightweight, tames flyaways, creates a shield against frizz, and comes in a travel size to take on the go,” Morgan says. “Provitamin B5, found in the R+Co spray, acts as a powerful humectant that helps to retain the moisture level of your scalp and hair, and it prevents water loss, thereby making your strands soft, smooth, and more manageable.”

Infused with “innovative bonding polymers,” this top-rated anti-frizz spray has a way of blocking hair from the effects of humidity, while making it look smoother, stronger, and healthier in the process. Unlike some other anti-frizz sprays, it’s not heat-activated, so it can be used on wet or dry hair and you can expect the same sleek results.

Oribe Impermeable Anti-Humidity Hair Spray — $42.00

“I love Impermeable by Oribe because it can be used before styling, it adds texture, and protects hair in any climate,” Morgan shares. “Oribe Signature Complex, found in the Oribe spray, defends hair from environmental elements, oxidative stress, photoaging, and the deterioration of natural keratin.”
