Traveling with coarse or curly hair can be a doozy, especially when it involves an increase in wind or humidity. Even the best summer beach trip can quickly become a frizz-inducing nightmare, which is why it’s crucial for those of us with thick tresses to pack the proper products on any getaway. Enter John Frieda’s Frizz Ease Extra Strength Serum, a travel-friendly frizz solution that will cost you just $9 on Amazon. 

A concentrated adaptation of the OG Frizz Ease cream many of us grew up slathering on after showers, the Extra Strength Serum repels humidity, smooths unruly strands, hydrates, and even prevents damage from heat styling. The pump of its slim bottle can be locked by twisting, making it a fool-proof travel companion. The serum is meant to be applied sparingly to wet hair and worked from roots to ends. 

Amazon shoppers are thrilled with the results. “I have been buying this for years now,” one reviewer wrote. “So great with my curly hair especially in the winter or in humidity. I put it on right after leave-in conditioner and comb it through.” Other reviewers noted that the serum was particularly helpful when traveling. “When I travel home where it's 80% humidity, this is a must! Sometimes I put a little extra on after I dry my hair for a little more control,” one wrote.
