If you have frizz-prone hair, then you know that the struggle is real—like, really real. While you can try with all of your might to tame the frizz—add a little bit of humidity into the mix and poof! Your hair is back to looking unruly again. So, what can you do? It’s time to arm yourself with the right products—and to incorporate some new strategies into your hair care routine! Ready to get started? Here are our favorite product picks for those with frizz-prone hair and tips on how to use them.
Managing frizz starts in the shower. Try the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Frizz-Defy Shampoo, which is sulfate-free and formulated with marula oil to gently cleanse frizz-prone hair for humidity and frizz control, manageability, and luminosity (a.k.a. shine). Apply the shampoo to wet hair, gently massage into a thick lather, then rinse and follow up with the L’Oreal Paris EverPure Frizz-Defy Conditioner (more on that below!).
Skipping conditioner is a beauty no-no—regardless of your hair type. We recommend using the system of sulfate-free L’Oréal Paris EverPure Frizz-Defy Shampoo and L’Oréal Paris EverPure Frizz-Defy Conditioner to help condition frizz-prone hair for humidity and frizz control, manageability, and luminosity. After shampooing, apply the conditioner to wet hair and massage it in gently. Leave it on for one to two minutes, then rinse.
3. Hair Serum
Never used a hair serum before? Prepare to be impressed! The L’Oréal Paris EverSleek Frizz Finish Oil-in-Serum is formulated with a luxurious blend of argan oil and flower oils. This lightweight serum helps to tame frizz and flyaways, detangle, and smooth each strand. It also provides humidity protection and helps your locks to feel touchably soft. To use, apply one to two pumps of the serum evenly on damp or dry hair from mid-length to ends. You don’t have to rinse it out. Blow-dry or let your hair dry naturally. You can also apply on dry hair to tame flyaways, condition split ends, and smooth hair.
4. Heat Protectant
When you have frizz-prone hair, heat styling tools are probably what keep you sane in the mornings as you get ready for your day to begin. But using tools like blow-dryers, flat irons, and curling wands day in and day out on the highest heat setting can potentially lead to more hair woes—and that’s probably not something you want to deal with on top of trying to manage frizz. Take the proper precautions by applying a heat protectant before using your straightener or curling iron. Try the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray, which provides 450-degree protection for all heat tools. Spray it onto damp or dry hair section by section, then style.
5. Blow-Dry Primer
Trying to replicate that perfect salon-quality blowout from the comfort of your own bedroom? Add a blow-dry primer to your hair care routine. L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Quick Dry Primer Spray cuts down your drying time and provides protection for all heat tools. Holding the bottle six to eight inches away from your hair, spray the primer evenly onto damp hair and blow-dry as you normally would.
Keeping a hairstyle in place—especially when you have frizz-prone hair—can be a major task. Enter hairspray, you’re new BFF (provided you find the right one, of course). The L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Strong Hold helps to protect your style against humidity and offer long-last hold and shine. Spritz the hairspray on in short bursts, holding it about 12 inches away from your head.
7. Wave Spray
Beachy waves are super-trendy—and you can get the look year-round. Spray the L’Oréal Paris AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray onto wet hair, then let your strands air dry. This weightless spray helps to resist frizz and add shine without sticky residue. For loose waves, braid your hair after spraying it on, then undo the braid once your hair is dry.
