Our best products to manage frizzy hair and tame your mane
How important is your washing routine?
“Healthy hair starts at the scalp – you want to keep it stimulated as much as possible,” says Jessica.
“If you follow a regular hair care routine, you will see a massive improvement in hair quality.”
It’s essential to use the right product for your hair type and find something that hydrates, strengthens and repairs dryness.

What causes frizz?
“Frizz and flyaways can often be caused by weather conditions such as humidity or even dry, desert climates,” says Jessica.
“It can also be due to curly or damaged hair.”
So if you have over-processed hair like blondes can sometimes have, you’ll be prone to fuzz.
If your natural curls have a mind of their own, try Debra Messing’s trick of constantly drenching hair with moisturizing sprays to keep it manageable.
Is there a long term solution?
Look for a shea butter mask as it is deeply nourishing and can help maintain your hair’s overall moisture level, helping to smooth strands.
“Even those with the finest hair textures should include a weekly deep conditioner in their routine,” says Jessica.
“I recommend leaving one on for 20 minutes or for an extra boost, sleeping in it and washing it off in the morning.”
Can brushing cause frizz?
“Yes it can. You don’t want to brush curly hair unless it’s wet – straight out of the shower,” says Jessica.
“Brushing dry, curly hair can just cause more frizz. Instead, I prefer a wide-toothed comb, which easily removes tangles.

What if we needed heat?
“It’s best to try not to overheat, style or color your hair too often, as these all contribute to frizz,” advises Jessica.
“Use a conditioning mask once a week to help repair your split ends and apply a leave-in protectant to help when styling with heat. I like to use a curling iron small enough to match the curl pattern and smooth it in. Finish with a hair oil to lock in the shine.
Point: Try to let your hair air dry at least twice a week. Once dry, apply a hair oil or define the waves with a shaping jelly.
