The extraordinary curly girl Lorraine Massey once said that “frizz is just a curl waiting to happen.” While I certainly agree, with summer in full effect and high humidity, some of us may need a bit of help to turn our frizz into the curls and waves we desire. Here are some awesome options to help fight frizz when the moisture in the air is not on our side.
This has been a holy grail of mine for years. I use this on wet hair after my leave-in and before gel, or as a refresher spray. This lightweight spray is organic, silicone free, and paraben free. It’s full of frizz-eliminating oils and extracts, seaweed microcapsules, and a patented Kerabead keratin technology.
This award-winning favorite not only tames frizz, but also adds a bit extra shine when applied on wet hair. I like to apply this super runny serum the same way I do the Raw Curls spray, after leave-in but before gel. For my high porosity, super frizzy hair, I find that more is more with this stuff in crazy high humidity.
This recently released duo was love at first use for my frizzy, thirsty hair. Developed with ingredients sourced from the Amazon and nothing toxic or unhealthy for our hair (sulfates, silicones, parabens, etc), the exclusive formula penetrates the strands to smooth hair cuticles, prevent frizz, and impart generous shine. Bonus, it smells like a tropical mango and passion fruit smoothie you’ll wish you could drink!
My hair’s best friend. If you like a firm hold gel that will leave your hair frizz free without stiffness or crunch, this one is IT! This gel helps my hair last for days, even in humidity or through intense workouts. It dries with a cast that scrunches out effortlessly and reveals healthy, bouncy curls underneath. For even more frizz control and curl definition, layer Jessicurl’s Rockin’ Ringlets potion underneath. And for those with sensitive noses, all Jessicurl products have unscented options.
Though this crème is designed for use with a blow dryer, using a little bit will help smooth your hair even if you air dry. Thanks to rose hip, argan, and coconut oils, the crème is able to banish frizz. It also has heat protection to help shield your hair from the harsh sun’s rays, preventing dryness and breakage.
These products, made of rich vanilla bean, creamy cocoa butter and lush kukui nut oil, are designed to defrizz, mend, and restore unruly hair. Additionally, they are quite affordable and smell like dessert!
A little goes a long way with this co-wash. Not only will it minimize frizz, it quenches even the thirstiest of curls (like my own) so that you can skip additional conditioner. Use this product to detangle, add shine, and leave hair feeling clean and bouncy.
This crème is full of antioxidants along with Biotin, Marula Oil and Shea Butter. Aside from calming frizz, it also aids with elasticity and moisture. For my own hair, I choose to layer it with a gel to give my styles a little more hold.
I’ve been a fan of this serum for years now. The silicone-free styler is full of botanicals such as quinoa protein that get the job done with just a little bit of product. When I use it, I notice minimal frizz, less unwanted “pouf”, additional shine, and better defined waves.
These are some of my favorite frizz-fighting products for humidity. Remember that every single head of hair is different and to find your own favorites, it is truly about trial and error. So do some experimenting yourself!
