KMS California Hair Stay Anti-Humidity Seal Review
I’ve never been much of a selfie-taker, especially in the summer. My hair is the problem. I can spend hours styling it, then walk outside where my ‘do transforms like something in a horror movie. Think I’m exaggerating? True story: I once won the grand prize in a frizzy hair photo contest.
So it should tell you something that I’ve been a selfie-snapping fool ever since KMS California’s Hair Stay anti-humidity seal ($18.99) arrived on my doorstep. Spend a few days in my shoes – with my hair – and you’ll understand why.
It’s swampy August, with temperatures in the hazy, oppressive upper 90’s. On a day like today, a time BHS (Before Hair Stay), I would be sporting a pony tail, most likely with frizzy little devil horns escaping around my hairline. Instead, I left my house hours ago with sleek, glossy waves, and (I can hardly believe it!) I’m going home looking pretty much the same.
Forget horror, my new hairdo genre is romance. I’m in love with Hair Stay and its anti-humidity seal. Don’t let the simple appearance of the can fool you. This product contains unique ingredients that team up to protect even the most weather-sensitive hair from frizz and heat. Hydrophobic Silicones create a moisture barrier around each strand, while pomegranate pepper creates protective hold.
I knew “pomegranate pepper” sounded familiar, and a quick google search jogged my memory – the combination of ingredients makes a delicious jelly as well as a powerful hair protector. Add these ingredients together, and you get what KMS calls “style retention,” a weightless, durable finish.
The process is simple: Style hair. Shake can. Spray 10 to 12 inches from head. Fearlessly go out into the world, secure in the knowledge that humidity will not penetrate your strands.
So I did the next best thing – carefully straightened my hair, then hit the overcrowded gym for weights and a cardio session. The results?
No frizz, even after a post-workout shower! On top of that, the spray’s light scent makes it the best-smelling hairspray I’ve ever used, and my hair looks soft, glossy and absolutely frizz-free. What more could you ask from a product?
• Provides heat protection and weightless frizz control
• Protects styled hair from the environment
• Keeps frizz at bay for straight and curly styles
• 24-hour humidity blocking formula
• Part of an entire line of Hair Stay products that provide “style retention and durability”
• May result in chronic selfie-snapping
With Hair Stay in my corner, I will never again dread summer heat, a sudden thunderstorm or a sweaty dance floor.
