These 5 Products Will Help Combat Frizzy Hair

“I just love how the summer weather makes my hair all natural and curly!” said no one ever. Natural and curly means only one thing when you bring humidity into the mix: frizz. In hair terms, frizz is the enemy of the summer. We spend our days trying to banish it but it tends to best us at every turn. That is,?until you use the right products. And whether you have loose waves or full-on curls, these gems will make the most of them with no frizz or flyaways in sight.

Kevin Murphy Easy Rider Anti-Frizz Cr’me

 

I bought this online after trying a sample and I was hooked. It’s now one of my favourite products when battling frizz. The product is water soluble – so unlike a lot of creams, it doesn’t leave hair greasy?- and enhanced with minerals to tame any stray hairs. It can be used in all hair types and textures to tame unruly flyaways or polish curls and natural texture either when hair is damp or to add polish to your’do. Use with damp hair for the full effect.

L?Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil

L?Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil is a perfect finishing product.?It keeps your?locks sleek and shiny and tames my unruly frizz in seconds. You can apply a little to damp hair for extra shine, but a pea-sized amount distributed?to the problem areas of your dry hair will keep it under control. This is especially good if you’re dashing to an after-work event and your hair needs calming.

Bumble & Bumble Don’t Blow It Natural Hair Styler

For the days when you have to dash out the door with still-wet hair and no time for hair dryers, this is the best product I’ve ever used.?Polymers and plant-based conditioners enhance texture and body, and the lightweight texture of the cream doesn’t leave hair hard, but extra silky and soft. Simply towel-dry locks, scrunch the product in and leave to air-dry.

John Freida Frizz Ease Curl Reviver?Mousse

Having curly hair, this is the only mousse I’ve ever been able to use that doesn’t leave my hair looking like straw or an eighties perm and it’s because it’s so light in its formula. It also holds the curl well without drying it out. A little brushed in with a detangler before drying and you’re all set.

K?rastase Nutritive Fondant Magistral Shampoo

This shampoo was recommended to me by my hairdresser, and it’s the only shampoo I buy multiple bottles of. It gently cleans without overly drying or weighing down the hair, fighting the frizz before you’ve even started drying. Locks are smooth, chic and smell gorgeous and you only need to use a small amount per wash, so it will last ages.
