TikTok Just Taught Us How to Get Rid of Frizz in 3 Steps

Anyone with hair prone to frizzing knows: It’s not just something that strikes in summer. Humidity and heat? Yeah, frizz will happen. But winter dryness and hot forced air mean frizz is a year-round thing. And boy, is it dry right now, which is why when we saw John Frieda’s three-step frizz-fighting method on TikTok, we knew it’s what we’d been missing.

The way it works is this: You proactively tackle frizz at both ends of the styling process. First, when your hair is damp, you work the John Frieda Frizz Ease Extra Strength Serum from root to tip to repair any dryness and damage. Follow up by misting your hair with the Daily Nourishment Leave-In Conditioner for an extra-hydrating moisture boost. After blow-drying, smooth and seal the cuticle with the Secret Weapon Touch-Up Crème, applying where your hair is the driest.

How’s that for a before and after? Now, on to the important questions:

What actually causes frizz?

That would be dryness. Frizz happens when your hair is experiencing a lack of moisture. If your strands are dry, the cuticle becomes rough. Because the cuticle isn’t lying smooth and flat, the humidity from the air gets all up in there as your hair attempts to draw in extra moisture from the air, causing your strands to swell. That’s why your hair will frizz no matter the weather, but strong humidity is often the biggest offender.

Where can I find the John Frieda Frizz Ease products?

We like to shop them at Target and Walmart.

Are they good for all seasons?

You bet.

What makes these products fight frizz so well?

Each one is formulated with multi-tasking ingredients that work to tame frizz, protect from heat and humidity, hydrate and add shine (the serum in particular has the power of a serum, with the care of an oil). They’re all safe on chemically and color-treated hair too.
