By now, you’ve realized summertime calls for extra-special treatment when it comes to your hair care routine. You’ve also come to accept that humidity is the sworn enemy of a good hair day (see: Monica Geller’s infamous ‘do in Barbados). Unfortunately, humidity has officially taken over at this point in the summer, meaning that stepping outside probably has turned into a less-than-delightful magic trick when it comes to your hair. Frizz halos instantly sprout up on once-sleek strands. Curls go from cute ringlets to full-blown tangled mess. So how to deal with the inevitable poofy transformation of your locks? You have one of two options. Either decide to become a “hat person” right here and now, or, fight back. Just like your beauty look calls for a final spritz of setting spray to shield it from the melt effect of sultry days, your hairstyle demands a line of defense too. Enter: Anti-humidity hairsprays. These high-performance formulas do more than just keep your style intact—they actively fend off the frizz-inducing power of humidity. Ahead, we’ve curated the best anti-humidity hairsprays to suit your hair type and budget. Whether you choose to save or splurge, rest assured, your strands will definitely be able to stand the heat—and humidity.
