Summer has arrived and that means pool days, beach days, and having your coffee outside on the patio only. But fun stuff aside, what does this mean for your hair? For some of us, it might mean a dry, brittle texture, but for others it could mean a frizzy hair disaster. Although every year we know this is coming, we definitely don’t have to walk around like a frizz-ball for the entire season. Enter: all the products in this list perfect for keeping your 'do frizz-free without the crunch – and the best part is that many can be combined to mix the perfect hair cocktail for your daily routine.
Aussie Miraculously Smooth Shampoo&Conditioner
Start with a strong base to keep the poof at bay all day. This Aussie Miraculously Smooth shampoo and conditioner set uses aloe, jojoba oil and sea kelp to combat frizz and lock in shine and moisture, making it perfect for those humid summer days.
You can also use a hair mask to combat frizz during your shower session. Just lather your locks with this moisturizing mask and take a minute to shave (or dance... or sing... or give a TED Talk, we know you have things to say). After you wash it out, say hello to your frizz-free, nourished hair.
This little beauty might look intimidating with the fancy name and pretty bottle, but trust us, this blow dry milk is uh-mazing. According to Allure, it has Moroccan argan oil and Samoan coconut oil, freeing your hair from frizz and leaving it silky smooth. Infuse this into your hair as you blow dry, and watch as it thermally protects your hair up to 450 degrees - seriously, there are no post-styling flyaways.
Paul Mitchell is our hair’s BFF. The Invisiblewear Volume Whip is perfect for a blow out, or if you’re just in a hurry and have to quickly jump out of the shower. Massage some of the lightweight, velvet flower-infused whip into your hair for a no-frizz hair day, all thanks to the engineered humidity control in this product.
This Humidity Shield is one-of-a-kind because of Living Proof’s patented Healthy Hair Molecule (OFPMA), which is designed to block humidity with anti-frizz technology. Mixed with smoothing emollients, this spray is lightweight and protects your hair against UV rays as well. Win-win, everybody.
Mizani’s Humidity Resistant Mist is perfect for when you need to style and go. The mist hydrates, fights split end damage and formation and combats frizz and humidity. Reviewers raved about how well it holds their curls all day.
Sometimes the best thing for hair is a hands-on gel or oil—or in this case, both. Bumble and Bumble is notorious for putting out products for curly hair and this Anti-Humidity Gel-Oil makes for elongated, nourished curls that may have shrunken up and gotten frizzy. It contains a blend of Brazilian oils that lock in moisture and fight drying UV rays.
The final spray before you walk out the door is crucial because it’s the last thing you use before hitting the elements. Joico’s Finishing Spray has your back because it locks out humidity and eliminates frizz, all without deflating your look.
This is a final finishing step to lock-in moisture and provides a satin shine. If you live somewhere particularly humid, Aveda suggests mixing a small amount of pomade with gel while you're blow-drying to really lock out that frizz.
