1.Pantene Intense Rescue Shots inject hair-strengthening nutrients like vitamin B5 straight into your strands for a much-needed dose of moisture. Everything your dry, damaged hair could ever want to resist frizzing the moment you leave your air-conditioned apartment for the muggy outdoors is contained in each single-use tube.
2.Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer masks dark circles and reduces under-eye puffiness thanks to skin-loving ingredients like goji berries and Haloxyl (because what is sleep?). Inside you may be cursing what feels like 500 (million) days of sticky summer weather, but you'll look fresh, well-rested, and ready to take on the day.
3.Aussie 3-Minute Miracle Moist Deep Conditioner infuses your locks with hydrating avocado and jojoba oil to repair damaged hair cuticles that can make your mane look frizzy. Think of dry, brittle hair as a porous sponge that soaks up moisture (aka humidity) in the air. The result: a hot mess.
4.Garnier Damage-Repairing 1 Minute Hair Mask transforms weak, fragile hair into something you'll actually want to touch again in just 60 seconds. Use it as a leave-in conditioner for those mornings when you snoozed the past five alarms and literally do not have three extra minutes to spare to enjoy all-day, frizz-proof locks.
5.Maybelline The Colossal Big Shot Waterproof Mascara lengthens your lashes, locks in the curl, and basically will not budge in even the most humid climates. And while it will stay all day (which is nice but tbh I want to be in bed before 10 p.m.), you can easily remove the mascara with your favorite makeup remover.
6.Carol's Daughter Curl-Quenching Deep Moisture Mask delivers hydration and frizz-fighting powers to natural hair via a velvety soft mask that smells absolutely ~amazing~. It's made with moisturizing coconut milk and oil, as well as mango and murumuru butters. Forcing yourself to leave your apartment when it's 95 degrees outside and basically a sauna sucks, but at least your hair will look fab.
7.Olaplex No. 3 revives colored hair like nothing else I have ever tried. As someone who has consistently bleached her hair every six weeks for the last three years and who hates more than half-an-inch of roots, I can 100% vouch for how magical this product is. I could walk into a literal swamp and my hair would look like it's fresh from the salon.
8.Maybelline Blur + Pore Primer extends the life of your foundation (because the last thing you want to do is spend an hour on your makeup only to sweat it off) while also evening your skin tone, fading redness, and blurring lines. You can wear it on its own when it's too hot for a full face of makeup or under your favorite foundation.
9.It's A 10 Miracle Leave-In Plus Keratin builds protein in your hair to give you the polished, salon-perfect hair of your dreams, because what even was the point of waking up early to spend three hours straightening your mane if it's just going to frizz and curl the minute you step outside. (*Shakes fist* Curse you, humidity!) Now you can beat the frizz and basically get a keratin treatment at home for a fraction of the price.
10.Revlon ColorStay Foundation mattifies oily skin and keeps it from looking slick or greasy for up to 24 hours so you can spend less time fixing streaky foundation and more time searching for precious, precious AC. It's oil-free, comes with SPF 15 for added sun protection, and offers medium to full buildable coverage.
11.Milani Conceal + Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation + Concealer streamlines your makeup routine by combining two steps: foundation and concealer. Plus, it reduces the number of products you may usually use on your face, meaning your skin can breathe easier when it's hot and stuffy outside. This lightweight formula is long-lasting, oil-free(!!), water-resistant, sweat-proof, and the bottle is recyclable.
12.ColorWow Dream Coat Supernatural Spray guards against frizz for three. whole. days. (even through shampooing) and now I feel like a dummy for accepting anything less from my hair products. It's made with a winning combination of chamomile extract to protect colored hair and calendula extract to keep it hydrated.
13.Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer is a splurge-worthy buy that dries your locks in just 10 minutes without extreme damage. Umm, yes pls! This means smoother, shinier hair that's 61% less frizzy, according to Dyson. Your best hair day — even when it's soupy outside — starts with this hair dryer.
14.Coty Airspun Translucent Setting Powder helps regulate your skin's oil production so you can face — pun intended! — hot weather and humidity like a pro. This long-lasting loose powder also smooths the appearance of fine lines and blemishes (looking at you, adult acne).
16.Garnier Anti-Humidity Hairspray forms a protective shell around your hair, blocking out frizz-causing moisture so your curls hold for up to 24 hours. Oh, and it's paraben-free, too!
17.Milani Eyeshadow Primer produces the perfect base for your eye makeup, ensuring it goes on smoother and lasts longer. It'll last you from early morning classes or shifts when it's somehow already disgustingly steamy to sweaty late nights out and a fast-food run at 2 a.m.
18.L'Oréal Wave Swept Spray is for anyone looking to relive their mid-'00s scrunched hair dreams. This lightweight spray enhances your hair's natural waves while adding shine and frizz protection.
19.Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner fulfills all your smokey eye fantasy looks without fading — even through heat, sweat, and humidity. Or, use this creamy pencil to easily create the perfect cat-eye. My personal favorite option: Run it along your bottom waterline like it's 2007 and your mom is driving you and your bestie to a Fall Out Boy concert.
20.L'Oréal Elnett Satin Hairspray blankets your hair with its humidity-resistant formula so your curls stay curly even when you're sweating through a Florida wedding in the middle of summer.
21.NYX Matte Makeup Setting Spray maintains your makeup all day with its vegan, cruelty-free formula so your face looks fresh even when there's a heatwave.
22.Goody Ouchless Elastics secure your hair up and away from your face on days when it's too hot to bother looking extra polished (at least your neck will be cool!). Plus, there are no metal bits that will rip hair from your scalp when you let your hair down at the end of the day. Messy buns forever!
