The Best Mattifying Hair Products for Non-Greasy Styles

No-slick zone.

While glossy, sleek and shiny hairstyles are having a resurgence, there are many who don’t want to join in on this trend. Non-greasy styles are just as good. Think undone shags, messy lobs and frizzy hairstyles that are, of course, frizzy on purpose.

None of the aforementioned styles involve or need a dose of shine in order to stand out. In fact, the grease-less and matte texture is what makes the look. Read on to find out the styling products you need to achieve the non-greasy hairstyles you love.
