Nothing is worse than spending an hour styling your hair in the morning only to leave the house, then get soaked in the rain. But believe it or not, bad hair days don’t have to be an inevitability during the most snowy or rainy months. All you need are a few controlling and smoothing agents that can battle frizz and unwanted curling. Check out our top 10 favorite products that will help preserve all your hard work by keeping your hair nicely styled, even in the most unpleasant weather.
1. Oribe Impermeable Anti-Humidity Spray
If you live in an area that’s known for unpredictable or poor weather, you absolutely must carry the purse-size Oribe Anti-Humidity Spray. This life-saver shields hair from frizz, even on the wettest days or nights to protect any blow-out or curls you’ve styled. The spray is even Miami tested and approved, so you’d better believe it’s the real deal.
2. Kevin.Murphy Smooth.Again
If you’re someone with naturally frizz-prone hair, you know that rain and snow only exacerbate the issue. Fortunately, a leave-in treatment like Kevin.Murphy’s Smooth.Again does an excellent job of getting you through rough patches of weather. With the help of rare, soothing ingredients, Smooth.Again eliminates frizz, hydrates your strands, and creates a silky feel for those with a normally coarse texture.
3. Biolage Matrix Anti-Frizz Lotion
Lotion for your hair? Really? That’s right. Look to Biolage Matrix Anti-Frizz Lotion for weightless nourishment and tamed fly-aways. This leave-in hair treatment provides balanced moisture, won’t build up, and allows you to better manage normally frizzy hair. If you don’t have time for a leave-in treatment in the mornings (come on, who does?) use it after showering the night before a day with rain in the forecast.
4. Eufora Behave
If you know the weather forecast predicts rain or snow, be sure to use a styling cream like Behave by Eufora. This lightweight mousse provides soft, sleek tresses that can withstand any unfortunate weather conditions. Just work a small amount through towel-dried hair, style as you normally would, and allow this product to control any frizz you may encounter.
5. TO112 Console Serum
If your hair is going to battle the elements, it’s important to use a polishing hair serum like the TO112 Console Serum. This product contains Tamanu oil, which has been long-cherished by Tahitian women for it’s ability to keep hair looking sleek. If it works for French Polynesian women, who experience rain and unbearable humidity year-round, you know it will work wonders for you too.
6. Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Primer
This Bumble and Bumble Oil Primer is a hair stylist favorite, as it protects, conditions, and aids in styling all types of hair textures. It’s a great option for women with the curliest of hair types. This primer works to make your hair silkier, softer and — most importantly — defends against frizz. You’ll love that it makes your hair smell like a tropical paradise and keeps your hair smooth on wet days.

With this spray handy, you can leave your house confidently knowing your hair is going to remain perfectly styled all day.
9. Schwarzkopf Gliss Oil Nutritive Weightless Oil
Remember that water and oil do not mix, so one of the best ways to keep rain and snow from penetrating your hair is to apply a light layer of oil all throughout your tresses. This Schwarzkopf Gliss Weightless Oil provides intense care for anyone with dryness or breakage, and won’t leave behind any oily residue. It also fights any moisture-induced frizz, so you can be sure your hair stays safe if you get caught in the rain.
