Curl-free hair is always a goal, whether I’m at home or traveling. And no matter how many moisturizing shampoos, nourishing conditioners, and smoothing leave-ins I use, smooth, shiny strands never look back at me in the mirror. I used to think that my curly, unruly hair was just the price I would have to pay to live in wet New York. But much to my surprise, my stubborn shoots and dryness only got worse when I moved to dry Los Angeles.

Switching to intensely hydrating products has definitely improved the look of my hair, but it wasn’t until I tried the Sunbum Protecting Anti-Frizz Mist that I was really able to disarm my wavy hair for good.

Just a few drops of oily mist and my hair was ready to go, even though the latest plans only left me 15 minutes to get it together after shampooing. This, combined with the beach-inspired coconut scent and the small 3 oz bottle of e-liquid, makes this a must-have for me when traveling.

The smoothing and conditioning formula has also been praised by Amazon shoppers for its effectiveness and affordability. “This stuff is worth it,” wrote one reviewer. They continued, “It makes my hair look so beautiful and shiny without weighing it down and yet it still feels natural.”

Another client was delighted: “This is amazing! You need it in life!” They added that they took the mist oil with them while on vacation in Hawaii and it did not disappoint. “These Pacific waves couldn’t stop [my] hate…
