Frizzies got you down? Perk up with the Touch-Up Flyaway Tamer Add to ...

John Frieda Touch-Up Flyaway Tamer

The promise

For the woman whose hair is as stressed as she is, the Touch-Up Flyaway Tamer is a portable wand that polishes broken ends and tames flyaway hair with the flick of a wrist. It weightlessly fixes stubborn frizzies or loose ends without compromising hair's volume. And it's small enough to fit in your purse, making it ideal for on-the-go touch-ups.

How it works

The star ingredient is Inca Inchi oil, a lightweight, omega-3-rich micro-oil that feels as though it's infusing dry, damaged and broken strands instead of coating them and weighing hair down. The clear formula leaves hair with movement and body, seamlessly holding back flyaway strands while preventing future breakage.

How to use it

Brush the wand over dry, styled hair to tame flyaways and add a boost of shine.

The bottom line

Like a shamed politician at the pulpit of mea culpa, my frizzy hair seeks solace and mercy. It's not my hair's fault - it is weak and susceptible to the lusty wiles of the atmospheric elements. It didn't mean to shame me or ruin our relationship. Yes, it lied to me and for that it is deeply sorry. It pretended to be healthy and frizz-free indoors, but quickly got caught up in the excitement of the humidity-laden air and betrayed me. But it wants to make amends and work on our relationship. To that end, it welcomes John Frieda's Touch-Up Flyaway Tamer. With one quick swipe of the mascara wand, frizz is intercepted and healthy, shiny hair prevails. My hair will never betray me for humidity again.

$14.99 at mass-market retailers and drugstores nationwide.
