Do you use hairspray and other styling products?
In the summer, I looked high and low to find something that would prevent my hair from getting frizzy during those hazy, humid days.
The TRESemme Climate Protection Finishing Spray was the product I picked because it went on sale for just $1.99 CAD.
Unfortunately, this product didn’t help protect my hair against humidity, and it had a really strong smell that gave me a headache that lasted the entire day…for all the days that I gave it a chance to wow me.

TRESemme Climate Protection Finishing Spray Review
The first thing that put me off from this TRESemme hairspray was the smell – it’s incredibly strong! It has that salon-perfumey-chemical kind of smell that I not only dislike, but it also is the type that gives me a massive headache within seconds.
I only sprayed a little at first to test it out. (After all, you can always spray more, but if you spray too much initially, it can spell disaster.)
Even with just a little bit of product, the smell was nauseating! (If you don’t mind salon-perfumey scents, this won’t be such a big deal to you, but for me, I had a headache the entire time I wore it. When I shampooed my hair, the headache went away completely.)
Also, the smell is so strong that it actually interfered with the perfume I was wearing! Haha, I definitely prefer to smell like my perfume instead of hairspray!
The minimum expectation for any hairspray is that it should keep your hair in place even when it’s windy. The TRESemme Climate Protection Finishing Spray does that, but it also made my hair feel crunchy and a bit sticky.
For the record, though, I’ve never liked any hairspray that I’ve ever tried. There’s something about the way it coats your hair and makes it stiff that really bothers me.
(Nowadays, I only use the MoroccanOil Oil Treatment because I love how soft it makes my hair.)
When I first tried this out in the summer when it was hot and humid, my hair still got frizzy. And I can also bust their claim about fighting static because it didn’t seem to help.
With all this being said, we all have different hair types and hair needs. What doesn’t work for me may be your miracle in a can. The only thing you can really do is experiment to see how your hair reacts.
I tried out the Climate Protection Finishing Spray by TRESemme ultimately because it was on sale for just $1.99 CAD, but also because it seems like a lot of people swear by TRESemme products.
Final Verdict: 1/10
Perhaps my final verdict is really harsh, but if I get a massive headache that lasts all day long just from a product, I have to realllly bust it. I gave it one point only because it’s affordable and it controls hair on windy days.
Do you wear hairspray? Which kinds have worked for you? Have you ever used a product that gave you a bad headache?
