I've Tried Dozens of Products for Frizzy Hair, And These Are the Best Ones
Is there a single hair issue more frustrating than frizz? It always shows up at the worst possible moment. Important presentation at work? Frizz! Ten year school reunion? Frizz! Promising first date? Frizz!
Frizz can be hard to combat, and though you can definitely own it with a cute frizzy hairstyle, you’ll want to know how to get a handle on it for days when you’d prefer a sleek look. The key, according to Michael Duenas, celebrity consultant for Garnier, is to look for moisturizing ingredients in your frizzy hair products. “Moisture will make a world of difference in frizzy hair,” he says. “Also incorporating a light silicone will help fight off humidity, decreasing your level of frizz.”
Whether or not you develop frizz depends on several factors. “If you are letting your hair dry naturally, don’t touch it until it’s 100% dry and leave in your favorite conditioner. Your hair will hold its shape and get hydrated at the same time,” says Duenas. He also recommends avoiding hot tools and blow dryers if you know your hair is frizz-prone. “[T]he less heat that is applied to hair, the less frizz you’ll have.”
I’ve had curls all my life, but it wasn’t until I started working as a beauty editor (and trying a million different things on my hair—some things that worked, and many things that definitely didn’t) that I began to narrow down the best products for frizzy hair. So, get your regimen ready for some of these key-ingredient-packed picks, tested and approved by a beauty editor with seriously frizz-prone hair. Swap ‘em into your bathroom and you just might find yourself skipping outside on the next rainy day, your umbrella stashed away.
