Heat + Humidity Help from Garnier Fructis.

My hair usually does not act very well in the humidity. While the heat can weigh it down, heat and humidity leave it just a plain mess. It gets flat and frizzy and simply out of control.

In one of my many gift bags I got this great hairspray from Garnier Fructis. It stayed in my bag until this weekend when we hit record high temperatures with high humidity.  I styled my hair as normal with one of my many smoothing creams and a bit of mousse. I was so not in the mood for the frizz, so I quickly sprayed my hair and set it with this Anti-Humidity Hairspray.

Not only did my hair stay in place, it was smooth and shiny and the best part - frizz free.

The way this works is due to it's special blend of fruit micro-waxes, that create an instant barrier against humidity. The waxes quickly adhere to hair as it wraps the hair strands with humidity-resistant formulas, leaving hair smooth and manageable with frizz control.  Plus the high shine makes hair look even better.

The spray smells nice, dries fast, and obviously performs well, or I would not be raving about it so much. And the large can is just $3.99 at drugstores. Woo hoo!

I plan on picking up some more of the Anti-Humidity styling products in the Garnier Fructis line next time I am at CVS. I see that there is a Styling Cream and Smoothing Milk available.
