Natural looking strands aren’t out of the question!

1. For hair that’s still brushable.

If you’ve held out on integrating hairspray into your beauty routine because you’re concerned about having crunchy strands that are perpetually wet-looking, the Dove Style+Care Strength and Shine Flexible Hold Hairspray is the one for you. Formulated with Nutri-Style Complex, this hairspray works to keep your hairstyle locked in place while also protecting your hair from frizz and static. It’s a great option for those who are new to the hairspray scene and are a little apprehensive about trying it out.

2. For all-day hold that’s virtually thunderstorm proof.

The Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Anti-Humidity Hairspray is the enemy of your frizziest strands and will protect your hair from disobeying you, even when dealing with humidity. Bonus: the bottle is designed to provide an ultra-fine mist, which means that it won’t leave you with super crunchy hair.

3. For long-term hold on occasions when you mean business.

There are some days when you need dance-proof, weather-proof, roller coaster-proof hair. The Bed Head by TIGI Hard Head Hairspray is hardcore (literally) and exactly what the occasion calls for. It dries instantly and delivers rock solid strands that won’t be going anywhere anytime soon. Solid!
