1. Try Using Dryer Sheets

3. If Hairspray Isn’t Working On Its Own, Try Spraying It On Tinfoil

“Sometimes what I’ll do is spray a little bit of hairspray on tinfoil,” Brianna recommends. “It balances the product and the tinfoil calms everything down. Just lightly wipe the tinfoil on the surface of the hair to calm down the frizz. The combination of the product and the tinfoil calms any flyaways.”
