How to Get Rid of Frizzy Hair

For most people, a hot summer’s day by a windblown beach is paradise, but those of us with frizzy hair know better. What for some is a dream come true can be a nightmare for us, giving us the dreaded triangle head, a topiary of fine, frizzed-out hair capable of powering at least a few households with static electricity.

How can we keep the monster at bay? I’ve done a little digging and found a swathe of products—shampoos, balms, sprays, and other treatments—that will tame unruly frizz for good.

Frizzy Hair Remedies

Flyaways and frizz can be a symptom of dry hair. If you have curly hair, you may not need to wash it every day. Lathering up too much can cause your hair to be stripped of its natural oils, in-built defenses against frizz. If you think this might be the case, try using a dry shampoo on the weekends at first, washing only a few times a week, and see if that does tame frizzy hair.

Another thing you can do to avoid the frizz is to never, ever, ever towel dry it! This excites the hair’s cuticle and makes it impossible to lie flat until you wash it the next time. In short, towels: just say no.

Another natural frizzy hair remedy is Moroccan oil, also called Argan oil. You can get a jar of argan oil or buy it in a spray bottle for maximum coverage. While there are different brands that produce argan oil, MoroccanOil (yes, it’s all one word) is one of the dominant ones. You can purchase their Frizz Control Treatment in a spray bottle that neutralizes static, puts a damper (no pun intended) on humid weather and also preserves hair during the winter. This won’t straighten your hair, but it will eliminate frizz and improve its ability to weather any climate.

Frizzy Hair Help

Sometimes home remedies and routine changes just aren’t enough. That’s where products come in for more serious frizzy hair help.  Of course, there are shelves and shelves of anti-frizz products—an overwhelming number that makes it hard to sort the wheat form the chaff, so to speak. Luckily, anti-frizz products are unique in that you can get a good one for a relatively low price. High-street brands like Herbal Essences and John Frieda produce great anti-frizz lines that are both effective and affordable.

John Frieda also has an extensive line of “frizz-easing” products, including a serum, spray, and styling crème. I’ve personally tried the brand’s smoothing crème, which is an extremely low $5, and found it to be really helpful in subduing baby hairs, flyaways, and static frizz without weighing it down. If I had extremely frizzy hair, however, I don’t know how much good it would do. That might be a job for the serum, which I have heard works better for hardcore frizz. It preserves even the tightest of curls while smoothing out coarseness and dominating frizz.

At the higher end of the spectrum is household name Paul Mitchell’s Super Skinny Serum. It’s won multiple awards, including ‘Best Product for De-Frizzing” and “Best Smoothing Product.” It conditions and seals moisture into the hair shaft, adding shine and smoothing frizz without weighing it down. One con, however: it is formulated with silicones, which means other products won’t be able to penetrate your hair. Others dislike it because it isn’t 100% natural. The plus side is that since other products can’t get in, neither can humidity, environmental pollution, or bone-dry winter weather.

If you’re looking for something you can use on the go, TIGI Bed Head’s “Spoil Me” De-frizzing Spray (about $22) is a great solution. Suitable for all hair types and textures, this is a light, static-busting spray with a light citrus scene. Unlike hairspray, it won’t make your hair stiff or motionless.

It’s hard to know how to get rid of frizzy hair when there are so many products on the market. Everyone has different hair, with its own unique texture and personality. That’s why you must find the frizzy hair help that works specifically for your own hair type. Just as sensitive skin encompasses all other skin types—oily, combination, and dry—so too does frizzy cover different types of hair. From kinky, tight curls to stick-straight hair, each can be hit hard by frizz. The best thing to do is figure out exactly what product is tailored toward your hair type rather than grabbing the most expensive product with the most outrageous promises to tame your frizzy hair.
