When it comes to hair struggles, I’ve been pretty lucky throughout my life. In terms of hair type and texture, I’ve always had naturally wavy, manageable hair, for which I’m grateful. But, no matter what I’ve tried—smoothing shampoos, hair oils, serums, overnight treatments, masks, you name it—the one hair issue I’ve never been able to beat is frizz. In fact, one of my earliest memories of embarrassment was when my third grade teacher called me over to her desk and asked to put lotion in my hair to “smooth the frizz.” I was nine!

If there is one product on the market that I would venture to say has revolutionized the world of “glass hair” and movie-star level shiny strands, it’s Color Wow’s Dream Coat ($28). From Kim Kardashian to Hailey Bieber to fans, influencers and everyone in between, users can’t get enough of Color Wow’s hair-smoothing formulas. That being said, when I decided to give my journey to frizzless hair another try, Color Wow was the first place I looked. After just one use of their new Money Mist Hydrating Leave-In Conditioner ($29), I knew I’d finally defeated my frizz once and for all.

Color Wow Money Mist: What It Is

Color Wow’s Money Mist is the latest addition to the brand’s arsenal of hair-loving styling products. After years of rigorous research and development, Money Mist’s formula passed the the test of being a frizz-reducing formula suitable for all hair types thanks to the brand’s innovative Adaptive Technology, which simultaneously provides heat protection and UV defense while detangling, reducing breakage, strengthening, moisturizing and defrizzing for the silkiest, smoothest hair of your dreams.

Whether I’m air drying or using a hot tool or blowdryer, I feel like my hair always ends up looking puffy and brittle after styling, even if I used a curated concoction of treatments beforehand. I was immediately drawn, as a result, to the multitasking power of Color Wow’s Money Mist, and I knew if the great minds behind the transformative Dream Coat were at work here too (they were) that this would be a no-brainer.

How It Works:

One of my main issues with any styling products I’ve used before that promise silky, satiny strands is that the formula weighs down my hair and makes it feel greasy and flat, but you can tell immediately from the way that Money Mist sprays that that is not the case. With each spray, the lightweight formula penetrates and coats the hair follicles in an ultra-fine mist that sprays out evenly and easily, making application a breeze.

Within the lightweight formula, though, Adaptive Technology is working magic on each individual strand, as the mist adjusts to each fiber’s needs based on the diversity of size, molecular weight and type of ingredients found in the formula. At the same time, each fiber is nourished with a precise level of peptides, providing intense hydration and conditioning, thus strengthening, moisturizing and smoothing texture all at once.

Color Wow Money Mist Before and After

If the science-backed, years-in-the-making formula wasn’t enough to convince you, let the pictures speak for themselves. To get this shiny, red carpet-ready hair that I long thought perpetually out of reach, all I did was section off my hair after washing and towel drying and mist each layer with the product before combing it through to ensure even distribution, and blowdrying as normal. Instead of using heat protectant, a smoothing serum, a leave-in and a hair oil to try and keep my strands smooth, Money Mist packs the punch of all your essential styling products, penetrating even the most stubborn of frizzy hair.
