Say goodbye to limp roots, frizz and flyaways with our pick of the best style-saving beauty buys

Is the current humid spell causing your style to shift a bit too frequently at the moment? If so, you’re not alone. The extra moisture in the air can give rise to all manner of hair care conundrums including fluffiness, frizz and flat roots.

Luckily though, there’s a wide range of serums, seals and spritzes out there that act as an ‘invisible umbrella’ of sorts to shield your hair from the elements. Whether you’ve got fine or thick hair, curls or waves, here are the products that’ll soup up your styling routine.

Label.m Anti-Frizz Mist for Fine Hair, £17.50 for 150ml

Great for: Humid-proof hold

Whether you’re looking to give your messy bun extra staying power or to weatherproof your curls, a quick spritz of this lightweight hairspray should see you through the day. Fast-drying with a nifty applicator designed to disperse finer, smaller droplets, it provides plenty of hold without the heaviness.

Great for: Long-lasting protection

It’s unsurprising that retailers struggled to hold onto their stocks of this when it first launched. It’s something rather special. Designed to provide humidity protection for up to two to three washes, it leaves hair smooth and silky thanks to an innovative polymer that activates when exposed to heat. If you’re interested in maximum effect with minimal effort, (who isn’t!), it’s your perfect match.

Great for: Dry, thick hair

This pre-styling essential works much in the same way as a makeup primer. It helps speed up drying time, hydrates and smoothes to give hair greater manageability and control when dry. An impressive multi-tasker that provides great bang for your buck.

Great for: Dullness and flyaways

It's well worth having a can of this on your desk at all times due to its ability to boost vibrancy and tame frizz in one fell swoop. Its spray applicator also provides a welcome level of control for even distribution too.

Sachajuan Hair Powder, £32 for 35ml

Great for: Limp roots and lank ends

If rising temperatures cause your roots to fall flat, a pump of this texture-building powder will help raise their spirits. It’s definitely pricey, but a little goes a long way. Simply direct its pump applicator to the area in need of a pick-me-up and work in. It gives both natural-looking lift and extra grit to slippery ends to provide the illusion of fullness and thickness when humidity strikes.
