Nothing can make for a bad hair day quite like frizz. Sure, we all love a little bit of extra texture in our hair, but all-over frizzy, unmanageable strands? Not so much. If you struggle with frizzy hair on a daily basis, you may want to consider some new ways to battle the fuzz. To help you out, we’re sharing a list of some of the best products for frizzy hair, including post-shampoo miracle workers as well as some permanent solutions. Read on to learn more about how to de-frizz.
Best Anti-Frizz Hair Products
1. Hot Oil Treatment
If your frizz is caused by dry hair, we love to sort things out with a good dose of moisture. A hot oil treatment is great for this as it can add hydration to your hair. They work to concentrate on the frizziest areas of your hair, working to restore moisture, hydration and that touchable, frizz-free softness. It is also effective as an at-home, deep-conditioning treatment applied after using the best shampoo and conditioner for frizzy hair.
2. Hair Serums
For blow-dry buffs, we suggest using a hair serum, which is arguably one of the most effective frizzy hair remedies out there, to ensure you’ll have a sleek, frizz-free result. After shampooing, apply about a dime-sized amount of TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Serum all over your hair. The serum works to seal in the frizz, creating a luscious, silky texture.
3. Leave-in Conditioners
Another option for freshly-washed or damp hair is to use a leave-in conditioner. Just like using a hot oil treatment, a leave-in conditioner helps hydrate and tame frizz. Right now, we’re loving Suave Professionals Honey Infusion 10-In-1 Leave-In Conditioner. Besides being an obvious hydration helper, this leave-in product smoothens frizz and flyaways, leaving your hair smooth and shiny.
4. Styling Oils
If you are trying to tame the frizz on already-styled hair, try out a styling oil. We recommend applying just half a drop of some oil between your two hands. Lightly pat the oil over your hair just enough to tame the frizz, but not so much that you end up with wet-looking hair. It’s a super-helpful trick if you’re in a pinch.
5. Brazilian Blowout
If frizz really gets you down, you can opt for a more permanent solution. Getting a Brazilian blowout lasts a few months and will keep your hair frizz-free the whole time. It works with keratin to smooth down your hair and give you that silky result! There are different levels of the Brazilian blowout, so you can keep your curls if you like or go for a straighter look.
6. Japanese Hair Straightening
For a permanent option, you can go for Japanese hair straightening. This is something like a perm, but instead of permanently holding a curl, it holds your hair totally pin-straight. Getting Japanese hair straightening is no joke, as your hair will be totally straight and frizz-free (for better or worse!) until your hair grows out. Rock out on that straight, frizz-free hair without needing a touch-up for up to six months, depending on your natural hair texture. But be sure to ask tons of questions before you opt for this hair treatment.
Summer Frizz Solutions
Summertime means high time for some serious relaxing and long days at the pool. Unfortunately, it’s also a time when our hair is more susceptible to frizz, due to higher levels of humidity. Thankfully, there are some ingenious hair care products out there that can treat frizz while also creating smooth and manageable locks. Plus, a lot of our favorites are finds that you can discover at your local drugstore! Read on to discover which of these suggestions gets your vote for best product for frizzy hair:
1. Suave Professionals Coconut Oil Infusion Damage Repair Oil Treatment
Thank goodness for hair oils! While we like the D.I.Y. approach, we don’t have spare time to tap into a side hobby of being a Chemist, and that’s cool. As busy women, we love that we can pop into our local drugstore and discover products that are affordable and do the trick to help us with frizz. One of our favorites is Suave Professionals Coconut Oil Infusion Damage Repair Oil Treatment, which works to provide deep moisture to your hair as it smoothens out flyaways and rough ends. Bonus: It can make your hair shiny, and even visibly repairs two years of damage!
2. Dove Regenerative Nourishment Shampoo and Conditioner
Good hair starts in the shower with the right shampoo and conditioner. We’ve touted the benefits of using products that work for your hair type in many posts, and this definitely applies to those with frizzy hair. One of our favorites is TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo, which has keratin and Marula oil that, when coupled with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Conditioner, leaves hair shiny and smooth, yet still full of natural movement. This line works to treat damaged hair as it hydrates it and makes hair less prone to breakage.
3. S Factor by TIGI Smoothing Lusterizer
When you combine a defrizzer plus a tamer, nothing can go wrong. To reap the benefits, check out S Factor by TIGI Smoothing Lusterizer. This product smoothens out any kinks in your hair, rendering it silkier, shinier and definitely more healthier-looking. Ed’s tip: A little goes a long way, and you only need a dime-sized amount to treat your strands.
4. Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Anti-Humidity Hairspray
Hairspray is one of the hair products for frizzy hair that doesn’t get as much credit as it deserves. Rest assured that they’re worth every inch of press! Heat stylers, we have your back with Suave Professionals Luxe Style Infusion Anti-Humidity Hairspray. This ingenious product works to protect your locks from frizz and humidity all day long, even up to 72 hours. How amazing is that?
5. Bed Head by TIGI Recovery Treatment Mask
Make frizz-fighting a regular part of your hair care routine by using a hair mask. This hardworking moisturizer is actually considered by those with unmanageable hair as the best conditioner for frizzy hair that just won’t cooperate at all, as its intensely hydrating properties also helps infuse strands with some slip. To best use the product, we like to treat ourselves to a weekly home face mask and a hair mask at the time (because it’s a multi-masking world, right?).
Bad Hair Day: Fighting Frizz
1. Treat your hair.
Masks are your BFF when you have dry, frizz hair. We love hydrating hair masks that revive your stands, like the Nexxus New York Salon Care Humectress Restoring Masque. This formula helps to keep the hair sleek and smooth, while preventing it from getting frizzy.
2. Let your hair air-dry.
To prevent frizz, let your hair fully dry before you style it. Air-drying allows less heat to penetrate into your hair, thus causing dryness and more frizz.
3. Use some anti-frizz cream
Another favorite to stock up on in your bathroom cabinet is anti-frizz cream. Apply some anti-frizz cream to damp hair, like the TRESemmé Smooth & Silky No Frizz Shine Spray. Then, rub some of the product into your hands and hair, focusing on the ends of her hair. When it dries, it will get the frizz out as it adds moisture. Plus, it won’t weight your hair down!
