Beauty Products Every Frizzy-Haired Woman Needs
Raise your hand if you’ve ever applied a so-called anti-frizz product only to get hit with Monica Gellar-in-Bermuda hair moments later. Yeah, we know the feeling. Luckily, there’s a whole slew of products that actually do work wonders. Below, a guide to the ones worth futzing over.
Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel
Curly-haired ladies don’t mess around when it comes to fighting frizz, and Ouidad speaks their language. This bestselling styling gel (applied to wet hair, to seal in the strand before it dries) can get even the most unruly mane out of any hair-raising situation.
Alterna Bamboo Smooth Kendi Dry Oil Mist
Ideal for fine to medium hair types (it’s incredibly lightweight), this guy can be used as both a treatment or a styling primer. Bonus: It also protects color.
Ouai Hair Oil
This amazing oil seals split ends for a glossy finish, but also doubles as a hydrating overnight hair mask. Work it in, get some sleep and rinse in the a.m..
Redken No Blow Dry Airy Cream For Fine Hair
The trick to skipping your hot tools? Finding a product that zeroes in on your hair type. Meant for ladies with hair so thin a bobby pin falls right out, this product contains fiber-forming polymers that encourage control, but leave you with zero crunchy residue.
Kerastase Aura Botanica Essence D’eclat
If you love your curls but don’t love when they lose their delicate spiral, this serum is just the ticket.
Schwarzkopf BC Repair Rescue Sealed Ends
If hair breakage and split ends are the cause of your frizz, this non-greasy formula will help heal any damage while helping your hair grow back.
Pureology Hydrate Shine Max
Dye-oholics, this one’s for you. Any dullness or dryness that’s stripped away is repaired and refreshed, amping your color back to its original hue.
AquaBliss High Output Universal Shower Filter
Even without realizing, your shower water could be filled with chlorine or other metals that actually create frizzier hair. Try this screw-on filter and see a difference instantly.
DevaCurl Touchable Curl Definer
If you’re unfamiliar with this curly hair line, it’s time to get acquainted. Created by women who suffer from your same hair woes, the line is packed with silicone-free rockstars like this curl-defining coconut oil cream.
Perfect Hair Day 5-in-1 Styling Treatment
A small amount of this product goes a long way. While it’s meant for pre-styling, some reviewers comment that prolonged use makes non-styled hair even smoother and more manageable.
Living Proof ($27)
Mixed Chicks Leave-In Conditioner
An alcohol-free, non-sticky product made for anyone who has unruly or hard-to-manage hair (um, so, almost everyone?). It gently defines your natural curls and locks moisture into damp hair.

Listen up. If you want to keep your ringlets intact, this liquid gold oil is exactly what you need.
John Masters Organics ($20)
Ouidad Water Works Clarifying Shampoo
You may think that washing away the humidity each day is good for frizz, but it actually dries hair out more. Skip the daily wash by using this clarifying shampoo that uses non-stripping citrus extracts to cleanse and remove any residue without depleting moisture and nutrients.
L’Anza Healing Smooth Straightening Balm
A straightening balm and heat protectant in one, this product is fan favorite of low-maintenance girls who like to run a straightener through their hair on occasion.
Liquid Keratin 60-Day Treatment
If you’ve been toying with the idea of paying for keratin, this budget-friendly option has many of the same benefits at a way lower price point. While it does require two back-to-back shampoo, blow dry, and treatment routines, we’d say it’s worth it to avoid that the salon fees.
Liquid Keratin ($39)
Show Beauty Pure Moisture Treatment Mask
If you’re looking to yield high results with little work, this washout moisturizing mask conditions and rebalances hair’s natural moisture—leaving it clean, weightless and totally frizz-free.

Kenra Professional Platinum Silkening Gloss
Best for straight hair (wet or dry) this glossy serum leaves hair silky soft. But those with sensitive noses beware, there is a strong scent similar to cotton candy—which reviewers seem to either love or hate.
Kenra Professional ($22)
Amika Curl Defining Cream
Wavy curls will delight in this mixture between a leave-in conditioner and curl-defining cream.
Gloss Moderne High-Gloss Serum
Great for every kind of hair, simply work a small amount of this serum into your strands for magazine cover hair.

Form Multitask Leave-In Lotion
Since it’s a leave-in conditioner, a quick splash of water on dry hair will reactivate the conditioner and give day-two hair a softening revival.
Aquis Lisse Luxe Long Hair Towel
The ultimate primer against frizzy hair, this uber soft towel is gentler on wet hair and helps to speed dry your hair and create a smoother, softer and healthier base for styling.
Bumble and Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil
A six oil blend, including grapeseed oil, safflower seed oil and argan oil, detangles, strengthens against breakage and dramatically reduces frizz—all on dry hair.
Bumble and Bumble ($40)
Aquaphor Healing Ointment
Psst: Here’s an on-the-go hack. Use a pea size amount of Aquaphor on dry hair to flatten flyaways, breakage and dried out hair. Be sure evenly distribute on your hands before applying to avoid getting greasy.
