There's a reason why anyone with long hair often throws their tresses up in a bun during the summer; and no, it's not just the heat. As you probably know, warm weather and humidity can absolutely wreck even the most polished of hair styles — breezing through hair spray, pomade, and gel as if they weren't even there. And with the official start of summer now just a month away, it's time to check out R+Co's MOON LANDING Anti-Humidity Spray, which dropped online May 15. Hailing from the cult-famous R+Co collective, the new spray promises to protect your strands from the muggiest weather; all you need to do is shake the bottle, take aim, and spray a lightweight coat all over your 'do.
OK, that may sound way too good to be true. (Especially if you live in a place where the humidity makes you feel like you're swimming the second you step outside.) But R+Co's MOON LANDING formula appears to back up its hair-protecting claim. Inside one $32 aerosol spray bottle is a cocktail of frizz-repelling ingredients: sea buckthorn oil, buriti oil, and tocopherol — the very same vitamin found in R+Co’s recently-reformulated BEL AIR Smoothing Shampoo and Conditioner set. Additionally, R+Co's new spray contains panthenol, a hydrating B5 provitamin also found in hair growth serums.
One of MOON LANDING's ingredients is a secret, though: R+Co simply lists it as a polymer blend. According to the product description, the confidential blend is a key component to sealing the moisture you want in your hair while keeping humidity from sneaking in.
But the new spray won't just keep your hair chill and under control all summer long — though it will help you there. MOON LANDING also doubles as a finishing mist and a styling product, leaving behind a glossy satin finish and providing your hair with a touch of flyaway-taming hold. And in case you need one more reason to snag the new spray, R+Co also notes in the product description that it's scented with the brand's ROSY EYED fragrance — which mixes together summery fruits like bergamot and wild fig with earthy cedar and lotus flowers.
