These frizzy hair remedies will put an end to frizz madness.

As much as we want to have perfect hair from the moment we open our eyes every morning, it’s just not possible for most of us ladies. When we’re running out of time in the morning, we just dash out of the front door and leave our hair to naturally dry while we’re stuck in traffic. As a result, we’re left with frizzy and volume-less locks which we’re forced to conceal through a messy bun or a loose, low ponytail. With these frizzy hair remedies, however, smooth and shiny hair is just within reach.

8 Frizzy hair remedies to try

1. A blunt haircut is a no no

When your hair is evenly cut all around, hair tends to become more voluminous—but not in the best way. Most of the time, it only looks voluminous in a certain area and more often than not, it’s the lower part making your hair look like a pyramid. However, if you want to sport a dead straight blunt cut, ask your stylist to layer your hair in reverse, with shorter strands inside and the longer ones falling on the outer part of your hair.

2. Wash your hair with shampoo that has the right anti-frizz formulation

Frizz is usually the  reason why you have a bad hair day. To avoid it, use a shampoo that’s specially made to tame frizz and that’s formulated to smoothen and straighten your hair, making it gorgeously sleek and easy to style.

TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo

Editor’s tip: Use TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo, with lower sulfate content, it gently cleans your hair while smoothing out any unwanted frizz. For best results, use it together with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Conditioner.

3. Apply leave-on conditioner or styling cream on your hair right after washing

This tip is especially helpful for those who have wavy locks yet want to maintain their hair’s natural texture. Apply the product on damp hair and leave it to air dry.

Cream Silk Standout Straight Vitamin Treatment

Editor’s tip: We recommend Cream Silk Standout Straight Vitamin Treatment if you have frizzy hair. This product helps restore normal levels of negative charge to reduce static and make hair feel smoother and more manageable.

4. Find an alternative to towels

Drying your hair with a towel may be the quickest way to get the excess water off of your hair; however, it creates friction, and friction is what causes you hair to become frizzy. A better alternative for a towel is using a t-shirt or a soft fabric to squeeze out water from your hair. Then allow your hair to air dry.

5. Comb your mane while it’s damp

Brushing or combing your hair while it’s wet can make you hair brittle leading to hair breakage. Our tip: after you condition your hair, use a wide-toothed comb to style your locks. If you need to detangle certain parts of your hair, simply run your fingers through your tresses carefully.

6. Blow dry your hair using the right heat-styling product

TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Smoothing Spray

Leave no room for frizz and bring out the heavy artillery. Just make sure you use a heat-protectant product that protects and reduces frizz like TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Smoothing Spray. It doesn’t just protect your hair from damage caused by the heat but also prolongs the strong, smooth, frizz-free effect from your blow-dry session.

7. Apply hair serum to make hair sleek

At first, you might think that hair serums are unnecessary, since you already have a packed arsenal of hair care products. A drop of hair serum, though, can make a huge difference in your hair. Aside from smoothing out frizz and stray hair, hair serums can help prevent split ends. They act as a barrier between your hair and styling tools. They also make your hair smooth and shiny, so can bid goodbye to dull and lifeless locks.
