As the saying goes, the higher the hair, the closer it is to God. But when that includes unintended or unwanted frizz, it doesn’t seem so heavenly. So what causes frizz in our hair and how do we stop it? “Frizz comes from hair absorbing moisture in the air,” says hairstylist Jen Atkin Seduce. “So making sure you condition and mask will help your hair fight that and leave it hydrated without wanting to absorb outside moisture.”
Depending on your hair type, there are certain techniques you can use to ensure frizz-free days. For straight and wavy textures, Atkin says applying styling creams before using a hot tool is a great practice. “If you style your hair with a curling iron or straightener, spraying the hair with hairspray beforehand and brushing it through will help prolong the style and prevent frizz,” she says.
Those with curly, frizzy textures who don’t use hot tools as much should consider applying products to damp hair, according to Atkin. If you’re letting your curls air-dry, she recommends using a microfiber towel or an old cotton t-shirt to wring out excess water first to speed up the process.
There are plenty of products out there these days, including leave-in conditioners, oils, shampoos, and even wipes to help you in your quest for frizz-free (or especially frizz-free) hair. But not all products that claim to fight frizz are universal, and it can take a lot of practice, product, and patience to get your hair to behave the way you want it to.
With the help of several hairstylists, including Atkin, we’ve rounded up 24 of the best on the market.
