Already a Golden Globe winner, Awkwafina was also nominated for Best Actress at the Critics’ Choice Awards. While we’re highly impressed by her work on screen, we also can’t get over her beauty look last night. With perfectly shaped waves, her hair looked incredibly sleek, relaxed and shiny.

So what’s her secret? Celebrity hairstylist Marcus Francis revealed to In The Know, “My number one product for the night was the Suave Professionals Sleek Anti-Frizz Smooth & Shine Cream.” Surprisingly, this hair care essential comes in a set of two at Walmart for a super affordable price.

Francis explained, “When I saw Awkwafina’s floor length Elie Saab gown for the Critics’ Choice Awards, the flowy vibe inspired me to give this look a nod to 70s glam. In the vein of Jerry Hall and Bianca Jagger, I thought wearing her hair down, swept to one side with full body waves would complete the look perfectly for the red carpet.” And we totally agree — this was a perfect look for the award-winning actress.

While this anti-frizz cream is a favorite on the red carpet, Walmart reviewers also highly rave about it. One wrote, “This is [the] best anti-frizz product that I've tried. I've got sensitive skin and break out easily but this product doesn't do that to me and it makes my hair super soft and feeling amazing never greasy.”

Another mentioned, “This is probably the best anti-frizz, conditioning product I've ever used (and I've tried out so many: from inexpensive to expensive).”

Made with Vitamin E and silk protein, you can count on this product to keep the static and frizz away from your hair. It’s great for adding smoothness and shine, and is also lightweight to help control flyaways.

So just in case you’re in search of a cream that’s red-carpet worthy but also budget-friendly, this one is definitely worth trying.
