How to stop frizzy hair


There’s nothing we love more than a head of bouncy curls or flowing waves, but we’re less in love with the inevitable frizz halo that seems to appear the second we step into even slightly humid weather, or got caught in an unexpected shower (which seems to be the only weather setting right now).

“Frizz affects us all to varying degrees, depending on hair type and condition,” says Paul Percival, hairstylist and founder of Percy & Reed. “Plus, dehydrated hair is especially prone to swelling – so it pays to keep your locks moisturized.”

If this month’s persistent rainy weather has you wondering how to stop frizzy hair for good, there are several lines of attack available to you. First, find the right shampoo for frizz-prone lengths. Next, opt for anti-static, lint-free styling products that will protect each strand from the moisture in the air (whether it’s humidity or a surprise downpour). Look for lanolin and silicone moisture guards on the back of the bottle – yes, silicones can be a lifesaver – plus nourishing oils to seal in dry lengths and split ends between salon appointments.

Here, we’ve rounded up the best anti-frizz hair products we’ve tried, from deep treatments to smoothing creams, and even a revolutionary mist that will define and deflate curls without messing them up.

Anti-frizz oil

Living Proof’s No Frizz mainline has been a secret weapon for many curly-haired people for a while, but this recent addition is a real game-changer.

What it does, however, is completely seal the hair fibers from moisture, preventing frizz all day long. Just a few drops in damp hair will make curls more defined and straight hair smoother. A hero.


Total Results High Amplification Lamellar Treatment

Lamellar treatments are one of the most exciting hair innovations of recent years. Think of them as a water-based conditioning treatment, working to repair damaged sections of hair while providing softness and shine to rival a long salon session.

Matrix’s offering may not be the best-known lamellar treatment, but the no-waste precision nozzle and sophisticated scent make it our top pick.

Apply it to freshly shampooed hair in the shower, let it sit for a few seconds before rinsing, and follow with conditioner if your hair is thicker (or more damaged). The sleek and shiny transformation will convert you after just one use.


Oil-free volumizer for fine hair

Fine hair can also be frizzy, but many straightening products are too heavy for easily weighed down lengths. This smart oil is carefully formulated to penetrate fine strands without leaving them greasy. It will stop flyaways and add enviable shine.
