John Frieda Frizz Ease Dream Curls Air-Dry Waves Styling Foam

dream-curls-air-dry-waves-styling-foam

Sometimes, going with your natural texture is the easiest and quickest route to battling fizz. On those days, skip hot tools and finger-comb a golf ball-size amount of this foam through sopping wet hair. Moringa oil helps boosts shine and tamps down frizz, while flexible polymers in the formula stretch around strands. The result? Waves that look controlled and bouncy, but feel soft (not crispy).
