The Worst No. 4: Frederic Fekkai Summer Hair Beach Waves, $23 average reader rating: 6.1

“This product definitely did not work for me. I have curly, wavy hair and this product made my curls sticky, limp, and just not pretty at all. When I rinsed it out of my hair, my hair felt brittle and dry.”

The Worst No. 3: Charles Worthington London Big Hair Full Volume Texturizing Salt Spray, $5.99 average reader rating: 5.9

“It’s sticky! Unlike the shampoo and conditioner in this line (which are great), this stuff builds up on your hair really rapidly, and also makes your hair look dirty.”

The Worst No. 2: Bumble and bumble Hair Powder, $18.95 average reader rating: 4.7

“My entire bathroom was covered in brown spray paint. I spent forever cleaning up the mess.”
