Let me start by saying, I don’t know anyone who loves humidity. In fact, I think it’s safe to say 99.9% of us despise it. TBH, there’s not much to love, especially if you have natural or textured hair. We all know the struggle after spending minutes (if not hours) perfecting our waves, curls, and coils for it to all go down the drain in a matter of minutes thanks to smoggy, suffocating air. So to say we need humidity hair products in our daily rotation would be an understatement.
Thankfully, there are award-worthy formulas out there that repel that unwelcome moisture in the air and keep our strands intact, no matter what mother nature may bring. And since humidity is basically every curl’s worst nightmare, there are specific needs people with straight-hair probably wouldn’t think twice about. To help eliminate the guesswork, we’ve rounded up the top formulas that fight humidity without sacrificing definition, hydration or hold. From gels to creams to spray, keep scrolling to see our must-haves.

Oribe Imperméable Anti-Humidity Spray
A favorite of the pros, this humidity-resistant formula was tested and perfected in the tropical climate of Miami so we know it actually works. Not to mention, that signature Oribe scent is enough to win over our hearts.
