As the saying goes, the higher the hair, the closer to God. And when temperatures rise, all it takes is just the tiniest bit of moisture for your hair to pouf up toward the heavens. If you’d prefer to keep things a bit more down to earth, here are the frizz-fighting products you need.
L’ORÉAL PARIS EVERPURE MOISTURE SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER
This moisturizing duo is great for thick hair, because it helps weigh it down a bit (a good thing for those prone to frizz). And after the shower, rub a tiny dab of the conditioner on your ends—it’ll prevent any fuzz from forming as you blowdry.
SOLANO 3300 XTRALITE DRYER
Blowing out frizzy hair can feel like an exercise in futility unless you’re armed with the right tool. This compact ionic blow-dryer packs as much heat as a full-size version, plus this little beauty emits a negative charge that helps smooth the hair’s cuticle. Bonus: Once hair’s superdry, blast it with the cool shot to lock it all in.
SUAVE NATURALS DAILY CLARIFYING SHAMPOO
Silicone is in many anti-frizz products for a reason—it works—but it can build up on the hair, making it look greasy and dull. Use a clarifying shampoo once or twice a month to get things back on track.
MASON PEARSON BRUSH
This hairstylists’ favorite contains boar bristles, which are especially effective on unruly, overstressed hair. Lightly mist the brush with hair spray before you leave the house, stash it in your bag, and pass it over frizzy strands throughout the day when you need a touch-up.
JOHN FRIEDA FULL REPAIR TOUCH-UP FLYAWAY TAMER
Applied with a mascara-like wand to tame a frizzed-out hairline or random unruly wisps, it’s small enough to take with you everywhere.
GARNIER FRUCTIS STYLE SLEEK FINISH SERUM SPRAY
Creating a barrier between your style and the elements is a crucial weapon in the battle against frizz. This one is silicone-free, delivers tons of shine, and contains argan oil so it won’t dry out strands. Tip: Mist it on your hands, then use your fingertips to smooth out any problems spots, like around your forehead or along your part.
MOROCCANOIL FRIZZ CONTROL
We first spotted this brown bottle of oil backstage at fashion shows and knew if it could work wonders on the models’ fried hair, it could definitely work on us. Though many products now contain its star ingredient, argan oil, this one remains a favorite for use on overprocessed hair, which tends to be a frizz magnet.
AUSSIE 3 MINUTE MIRACLE DEEEEEP CONDITIONER
Trust us, this oldie but goodie always makes our Best of Beauty list for a reason: Three minutes (and plenty of proteins and hydrators) is all it takes to usher dry, pouf-y strands into smooth, soft territory.
LIVING PROOF NO FRIZZ SHAMPOO
If your hair’s thin, opt for a less heavy, silicone-free shampoo. This one is packed with OFPMA, a frizz-fighting molecule developed by scientists at MIT that’s just as effective and lighter than its silicone-based brethren.
