Does This Work? 3 Day Hair Straightener

Our curly-haired intern, Adriana Rivera, has been on a search for a frizz fighter that could stand up to this summer’s humidity. Here’s the best one she’s found:

The Product: John Frieda Frizz-Ease 3 Day Straight Styling Spray, ($9.99,

The Claims: Weightless spray with heat protection. Blocks out frizz as you straighten. Keeps hair glossy, smooth, and swinging with body for up to 3 days.

My Results: The instructions for the product said to spray the formula into damp or wet hair, so I combed through my hair to disperse it thoroughly. Then I blew my hair out straight. Usually, this takes me a good half hour. Now it only took twenty minutes! It was so easy. But the real test: would my hair curl up again overnight? Surprisingly, no! And besides running a brush through my strands, I didn’t have to re-style in the morning. The bad news: The first two days, my hair was full of volume and frizz-free. But by the third day my hair started to get oily, although it was still smooth.

Overall score (out of 5 stars): 4 ½ stars
