This Hair Spray Is Like a Makeup Setting Spray for Your Hair
It even kept my hair frizz-free in a heatwave.
Some personal news: I'm retracting every good thing I've said about summer because the first heatwave of the season is no joke. In New York, peak temperatures have been in the triple digits — with humidity.
My electricity bill is also going be in the triple digits, too, thanks to my AC. My laundry pile is next level because I keep sweating through my clothes twice a day, and my hair is frizzy, yet moist from sticking to the back of my neck.
While I have barely moved from my WFH setup in front of my AC unit all week, I have had to venture out to a few work-related functions, which is where Oribe's Tres Set Structure Hair Spray comes into play.
Despite its name, this product isn't a regular hairspray. It's actually a setting spray that comes out of the can as a mousse. And unlike other setting products, you actually use it on damp, clean hair, as you would with a primer, such as a leave-in conditioner or heat protectant.
Tres Set helps hold styles while simultaneously adding volume, thanks to polymers and pea protein. It also won't leave your hair dry and crunchy like a typical hair spray, which will also get sticky if you apply too much and it melts in the heat.

Instead of applying it directly from the bottle onto my hair, I like to spray a dollop of the mouse into my palm and then run it through my hair in sections. Then, I blow dry and flat iron my hair as usual, psych myself up, and go out into the unbearable heat. Typically, my straight 1C hair is frizzy by the time I walk to the subway, but this spray keeps it smoother. Not to mention, my hair feels ridiculously soft when I run my fingers through it.
If loving a $44 hair spray is wrong, I don't ever want to be right.
