A: Ah, we feel you Sameera. Frizzy, unmanageable hair can be the bane of our existence, particularly as we draw closer to summer. The humidity not only feels like it gets to around 90%, our hair is visible proof. Wearing a hat and sunglasses hoping to disguise how poorly your tresses mesh with the climate may seem like your only option. But, never fear - there are plenty of frizz taming hair products on the market - many of which are truly comforting as we descend into the bubble of humidity hell that promises to be the rest of summer. So without further ado, we’ve rounded up the top products that we guarantee will save you from your hair misery this summer.

This little beauty is the perfect foundation for frizz free styles. It provides the ultimate protection from fly-away hair by gradually building up hair’s immunity against frizziness with each use – forming a protective seal that locks out water and humidity.
