I do not use a lot of styling products in my hair because the long list of chemicals and lack of natural ingredients freaks me out and since I inherited the tendency of premature greying of hair, I am skeptical about what products go into my hair. But obviously I cannot be completely “au naturel” about my hair needs and have to use a good serum and a setting spray to fix my hair and make it more presentable when I head out. Reviewing one such product that I use – Living Proof Frizz Humidity Shield Finishing Hair Spray in this post.

My Experience with Living Proof No Frizz Humidity Shield Finishing Hair Spray:
I bought this product because it has raving reviews online and most of the salons that I have been to, carry this brand’s products and claim that they are good, less damaging to hair and perform well. I also do not believe in dowsing my hair with tons of products, so I was also searching for a multi-tasking product – the kind which can act as a hair styling spray, hair control spray and even a heat protectant. This product is rather unique because it helps to control frizz, especially in humid weather. It is meant for hair like mine which gets unruly in humid weather.
This hair spray comes in two sizes – 5.5oz and 1.8oz. The product comes in an aluminium bottle with a spray mechanism (the kind which is common for hair spray bottles). The finish of the bottle is matte grey and gives it a practical but rather a dull look. The other side of the bottle has a long list of ingredients which is a big concern for me, but then no matter how expensive a hair spray, it invariably has a long list of ingredients.
I use it to fix my fly-a-way hair and if I ever make a different hairdo, I spray it with the hair spray to keep it intact and mess free. I found that this spray does not help control to control fly-aways or provide a strong hold for hair dos. It is just meant to keep frizz at bay. Even though it has good reviews, it did not do wonders for me and left me desiring for more.
It has a very subtle fragrance which vanishes soon after application. It also does not leave behind flaky white residue as some other hair sprays do and does not give an oily or greasy look to hair. It claims to protect against damage from UV rays and has static control as well.
Pros of Living Proof No Frizz Humidity Shield Finishing Hair Spray:
- Good hair spray from a reliable brand – endorsed by most of the hair salons that I visit.
- It comes in two sizes, one can try the smaller size before investing in a bigger size bottle.
- Comes in a sturdy bottle which does not appear or feel.
- It works well on color and chemically-treated hair.
- It does not have a strong artificial fragrance.
- It does not make hair oily.
- It does not leave behind any residue.
Cons of Living Proof No Frizz Humidity Shield Finishing Hair Spray:
- It has a long list of chemicals, which is a big concern for me since I avoid using products with a lot of artificial chemicals.
- It is not a strong hold spray and does not help control hair flyaways. It is meant for someone who wears elaborate hair-dos and requires a strong hold spray.
- Does not provide effective frizz control.
- It can be expensive for some.
It is a good hair control spray which may serve well for others but not so much for me. It does not make my hair greasy or harm them in any visible manner. I do recommend it to all those who are on the look for a good, salon-recommended, mild frizz control hair spray.
