Drybar Sparkling Soda

I love me a good shine spray – they’re perfect for taming frizz and giving hair a dose of moisture.  If I want staying power then I use a hairspray, but most days I just need a bit of TLC, and so I’ve been turning to Drybar’s Sparkling Soda shine mist ($35).  It’s light-weight but […]
