The summer months may bring sunshine and vacations, but unfortunately they also bring heat, humidity and an unwelcome guest: FRIZZ.
Now is the perfect time to stock up on your favorite frizz-fighting products, but we know you don't want to waste your cash on serums that don't work (we've all been there). We've narrowed down our top recommendations for anti-frizz products that actually work.
If you’re fighting frizz, look for silicone-free products like this one. Silicones strip the hair of natural moisture, which can be especially damaging in the summer months.
Confident Coils also has “Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice,” otherwise known as aloe vera. Aloe vera is a natural conditioning agent--its essential vitamins and minerals will restore your hair to good health, and that means less frizz! It has even been linked to increasing growth rate.
To quote one user, “Does this product need another positive review?” It’s listed on CurlMart’s Top Coily Hair Products for a reason...it really works! The reason why? This leave-in conditioner boasts jojoba, avocado and coconut oils, three great moisturizers and frizz-fighters.
“I have used this product daily for years and I cannot say enough good things about it! It has transformed my hair and has made it much easier to manage. My hair is soft and bouncy with the perfect amount of shine because of this serum. Other brands haven't worked nearly as well. I never leave on a trip without it.” --3A user Lammersm1
Check this one out for frizz-free, glossy curls. It even contains a UV filter for sun protection!
One look at the ingredients list is all the convincing you will need. This Darcy’s Botanicals butter is packed with moisturizing oils and tucuma butter, which brings natural shine to dry, damaged hair. It’s provides the conditioning and control that users will need for locs, twists, and braids.
This product is also an anti-humectant. Humectants tend to upset the balance of moisture in the summer--they will either suck the moisture out of your hair or they will attract water from the air into your hair, making your hair more susceptible to frizz. Avoid frizz and dryness by sticking to anti-humectants.
“I had a sample of Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel and, for kicks, I gave it a try on a day when I felt my hair was hopeless. I couldn't believe the results, particularly in the area of definition. This serum-like product is completely non-sticky and it disappears into my hair. It provides natural curl definition without a hint a frizz.” -- 3B user gardencurls
If you have thick, curly hair and you can’t find a styling cream that works for you, I would definitely recommend trying this product--a Best of the Best 2012 winner--or another similar gel. Because gels are heavier than creams, they’re great for providing all-day hold.
If you have frizzy hair, you want to avoid hairspray. Hairspray promises to control frizz and keep flyaways in check, but its high alcohol content actually contributes to frizz.
This silicone-free cream is a great alternative to hairspray. It can be used throughout the day to refresh your hairstyle, bringing bounce and shine back to your curls.
This product is one of your favorites for the month of June. Shea butter, avocado and jojoba oils make it the perfect cream styler for girls with thinner hair. It tames frizz and leaves your hair shiny...without the crunchy finish!
Is your hair already dry and damaged from the month of June? Stock up on this product and set aside seven minutes of your day. It’s simple; just comb the masque through your wet hair and let your hair soak in the benefits of macadamia, argon and tea tree oils. Then rinse and enjoy long-lasting moisture and rejuvenated curls.
When your hair is particularly dry and frizzy, hair oil is a great fix. Oils are great sealers and conditioners, which makes them great for achieving frizz-free hair! Try a homemade recipe or opt for an oil like this Gleau Nourishing Oil Blend, which is a mix of Moroccan argan oil, camelia seed oil, sweet almond oil, and jojoba oil, among others.
If you have wavy hair, be patient when it comes to finding an oil blend that works for you. If an oil is too heavy, it will weigh down your waves. Check out this article to learn more about the best hair oils for waves.
This lightweight Curl Junkie product probably won’t provide enough hold for girls with very curly or coily hair, but it’s great for girls with waves or type 3A curls. It controls frizz and adds shine to your hair, making your curls pop! A tip: this product works best if you air dry your curls.
