You leave your house with your mane tamed to perfection and the moment you step outdoors you have little strands of hair that will find a way to stick out. If the struggle with frizzy hair resonates with you and you’re wondering how to deal with it, the first step is in understanding what causes frizzy hair in the first place.
What Causes Frizzy Hair?
The main culprit is usually humidity and living in the Philippines, who can understand humidity better than us? When our hair lacks moisture, it usually sticks out to grab on the humidity and moisture in the air causing frizz.
Another reason for frizzy hair is usually damaged hair. Habits like applying too much heat on your hair, over washing, coloring it too often can dry out your locks and lead to damaged frizzy hair.
How Do I Manage Frizzy Hair?
Here at All Things Hair Ph, we’ve done our research on how to manage the frizz, and it usually starts in the shower with a good shampoo for frizzy hair. To set your expectations, no, shampoo alone won’t give you Pia Wurtzbach straight hair (you’ll need a bit more anti-frizz products than just washing for that), but it does tone down the frizziness and make your hair more manageable, easier to work with.
We get your struggle and to help you pick the right anti-frizz shampoo for you (and make your life easier), we’ve listed down our favorites below.
Tame Frizz With These Shampoos for Frizzy Hair
1. Best for Dry Hair
TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo
Frizz-free hair equals hair that is easy to style.TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo targets frizz with its Keratin-infused formula for frizz control up to 48 hours. Using keratin on your hair brings back some of the keratin molecules it’s lost so your tresses become softer and smoother. Not only that, we love how it doesn’t just tame frizz — it also helps detangling knots, improving shine, adding soft silkiness, and reducing flyaways. The result: healthy hair that’s full of natural movement.
2. Best for The Budget-Conscious
Sunsilk Smooth & Manageable Shampoo
Sunsilk Smooth & Manageable Shampoo is made with five natural oils: almond, argan, coconut, jojoba, and olive. This combination nourishes your hair, coating it with moisture while creating a barrier between your hair and the harsh elements found in the environment like pollution and heat. The result? Straighter, smoother, and more manageable tresses. Top it off with another anti-frizz product and expect better hair days ahead.
3. Best Hydrating Shampoo for Frizzy Hair
Dove Amino Restore 1 Minute Serum Shampoo
There are lots of shampoos that are made to tame frizz, but this one is a little special. Dove 1-Minute Amino Restore Serum Shampoo is infused with amino-serum capsules that repair your hair from within while washing away all the dirt and grime. Expect smoother, more manageable tresses without making it overly straight and limp.
4. Best Smelling Anti-Frizz Shampoo
Love Beauty and Planet Argan Oil & Lavender Smooth and Serene Shampoo
Just as lavender is said to be calming to the mind, this shampoo will also calm your tresses. Made with Argan oil and ethically sourced French lavender, this shampoo will bring life back to your dry and frizzy hair. Not only will your hair look good all day, but it will also smell great too!
5. Best for Heat Damaged Hair
Sunsilk Expert-Perfect Straight Shampoo
Tired of all the heat-caused damage that’s making your hair frizzy? Or maybe you just want to save time in your morning routine and skip the hairdryer for a day – Sunsilk Expert-Perfect Straight Shampoo can be your go-to. It has straight-lock technology that helps keep your hair straight as it dries which means no more hair irons or blow dryers, enjoy straight and sleek hair straight from the shower – just remember to avoid rubbing your hair with a towel to maximize its benefits.
6. Best for Shampoo for Split Ends
Dove Intense Repair 1 Minute Serum Shampoo
Another cause of frizzy hair is split-ends. This happens when hair turns brittle due to damage and thus causing the ends to start splitting into two parts or more. The best way to get rid of split-ends (if you already have them) is by going for a trim, but it’s still important to care for your hair to prevent more split-ends in the future. For this, we turn to Dove Intense Repair 1 Minute Serum Shampoo. It has keratin-infused serum capsules that go deep into your hair to repair damage. It leaves your hair recovered, healthy-looking, and more resilient to future damage.
Frizzy hair is not the end of the world. Even your favorite celebrities have a bad hair day or two, it’s just about learning how to care for them and give it the moisture and care it seeks.
Remember: A great hair day always starts in the shower!
