I think all of us frizz-prone gals can agree: Nothing puts a damper on a good hair day more than humidity. Whether your hair is straight, wavy, curly, or coily, damp air can wreak havoc on strands and make them practically untamable. This becomes even harder if you have naturally frizzy hair (i.e., me)—I'm all too familiar with my frizz factor multiplying by 10 after just a few minutes in a humid climate.

While there's nothing wrong with a bit of frizz (it is volume, after all), I like to know that I can control it if I please. The best way to do that is with frizz-fighting hair products that hold up against moist, muggy days. After much testing (and many failures), I've finally landed on some tried-and-true finds—from high-hold gels to lightweight sprays—that will keep frizz at bay, even in the highest of humidity.
