    35 Products People From Florida Swear By For Beating Humidity

    We don't do a lot of things right in Florida, but you better believe we know how to beat humidity.

    1. A pack of bamboo oil-blotting sheets that'll soak up the shine from your forehead so your face doesn't look like an oil slick come 3 p.m.

    2. A set of flexible curling rods so you don't have to spend hours in the morning curling your hair only for it to fall flat the minute you step outside. Use them on wet or dry hair and then sleep on them. The results: perfect heatless curls.

    3. A Garnier anti-frizz cream because you want your hair to look sleek and smooth when you leave your house in the morning *and* when you return hours later. It's paraben-free and designed to protect your style for 24 hours!

    4. A John Frieda serum to ~mane-tain~ your smooth, shiny style no matter the weather. Get you a serum that can protect against damage from heat-styling tools, resist frizz, hydrate hair, tame flyaways, and smooth strands.

    5. An antioxidant-rich styling cream from Moroccanoil for folks who want soft, touchable hair instead of a frizzy mop. This lightweight formula strengthens and hydrates while blocking out the moisture that would mess up your do.

    6. A hair repair serum with hydrating argan oil, aloe vera, and vitamin E if you dream of just brushing your mane in the morning and then heading out the door. It moisturizes and repairs dry, damaged hair while fighting frizz so you can look your best!

    7. A John Frieda touch-up cream that'll give your sad-looking locks a much-needed midday pick-me-up. Apply it when your hair is looking dry or your style needs refreshing. Or work it into damp hair before blow-drying or straightening for protection from the dreaded frizzies!

    8. A splurge-worthy Living Proof styling cream so you can live your best life without Mother Nature ruining your day. It's made with a special ingredient — Living Proof's Healthy Hair Molecule — that bars humidity, smooths your strands, and repels dirt and oil so you hair stays cleaner, longer.

    9. A Moroccanoil smoothing lotion because your hair deserves a luxurious treat. Use it before blow-drying to soften and detangle your strands and make styling effortless. It provides medium hold without weighing hair down so it's a great leave-in product or style refresher.

    Promising review: "Does a great job. Makes my hair sleek and shiny. Controls the little fly away hairs, you get with fine hair. Does a good job with humidity. I live in Florida. I also have fine hair and this product does not wear my hair down." –Claudia

    Get it from Amazon for $4.19.

    11. A curl-activating cream for enhancing your natural curl pattern while reducing frizz — a win-win! It's also designed to add volume, bounce, and shine for days so your day one ringlets look just as good on day three. And that's a win-win-win!

    12. An anti-humidity spray if you want to give humidity a metaphorical middle finger. This spray creates a waterproof coat around your hair that blocks out moisture (that eventually leads to frizziness). As if that wasn't already magical enough, this effect lasts up to 72 hours or through two to three shampoos!

    13. A Chi keratin treatment that'll help you achieve the salon-worthy blowout of your dreams. You'll want to brave the humidity and heat just to show off your glossy mane.

    14. A Briogeo leave-in conditioning spray free of parabens and silicones so you can take control of your hair back from humidity's sweaty grasp.

    15. A collagen-coating hair treatment because it's what your frizzy hair is begging for (I know, it told me!). It's safe for all hair types and will revitalize a mane that's dry, damaged, and overprocessed so you can tell humidity that you are not here to play today.

    16. A Revlon hot air brush to help you go from wet, tangled, frizzy hair to a sleek and shiny blowout in minutes — and stay that way for days, humidity be damned!

    17. A non-sticky hair-thickening spray that will keep your hair in place through all of the humidity while also giving it a boost of volume for days.

    18. A scalp massager if the humidity is causing scalp sweat and product buildup. A relaxing scalp massage is great for getting that blood flowing to your head while simultaneously breaking down leftover hairspray and dry shampoo as well as oils and dead skin.

    19. A hairspray with an extra-strong hold that'll resist Mother Nature's best attempts to ruin your hair with 99% humidity.

    20. A tube of antiperspirant hand cream so you can find relief from hyperhidrosis (the clinical name for excessive sweating). It'll also come in handy when the extreme humidity makes it near impossible to get a good grip on your tennis racket!

    23. A long-lasting mascara for obtaining the defined, voluminous lashes of your dreams. There are only two things in life you can count on: 1. the fact that it will rain every afternoon in Florida around 3 p.m. and 2. this mascara.

    24. A long-lasting makeup setting spray with a matte finish if you like grease on your fries, *not* on your forehead.

    29. A plant-derived, vegan anti-chafe balm to (finally) make walking around in the humidity and heat a pain-free experience (without clogging your pores!).

    33. A set of two satin pillowcases that'll help to stop your skincare from absorbing into your bedding and prevent frizzy bedhead. It'll also stay nice and *cool* for you, so there won't be a need for incessant pillow-flipping throughout the night.

    Promising review: "I'm a special effects makeup artist and have sworn by Smashbox Photo Finish Primer for as long as I can remember. It was time for me to buy some more and I came across this product. I was gearing up to work an outdoor haunt in Florida and wanted something cheaper since I knew my makeup would inevitably sweat off. This primer kept my makeup in place for eight hours of running around in the Florida heat! I'm sold on it and am already on my second tube." –Alexa

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    35. A long-lasting humidity-blocking hairspray to smooth some frizzy flyaway friends while also helping to lock in your chosen hairstyle for the day – from straight to wavy to curly.
