Frizzy hair care

Hair product companies know the demand for frizz-fighting products is real — and they’ve responded by putting out some of the best anti-fuzz, anti-poof, anti-ugh-not-again serums, shampoos, conditioners and gels that really can tame frizzy hair — even in 90-degree weather. Here are 11 great products to try.

Alterna Haircare Bamboo

A little of this miracle dry oil goes a long way and can keep your hair frizz-free from the moment you spray it onto your locks before your morning blow dry until your last touch-up before dinner (yep, this is another one of those portable goodies that works on both wet and dry hair). Organic kendi oil infuses your hair with omegas 3, 6 and 9 and antioxidant Tocopherol to protect it from damage, while organic bamboo extract strengthens your hair and adds shine (Sephora, $25).

Biosilk

This leave-in conditioning serum contains 17 out of 19 amino acids found in hair and fills in the cuticle layer, which helps prevent split ends and makes the ones you now have not stand up on your head. It’s ideal for any hair type and won’t weigh your hair down (Ulta, $26).

Whether you’re in between keratin treatments and searching for a product to extend your expensive, anti-frizz salon treatment or in need of a serum that can control chemically treated or damaged hair, women swear by this hair-strengthening product, which you apply to damp hair and then blow-dry (Amazon, $15).

Ken Paves Hairspray

Many hairsprays control frizz but dry out your hair in the process. Not this beauty — Ken Paves You Are Beautiful Flexible Hold Hairspray actually makes your hair healthier and softer as it minimizes frizz and holds your style in place, thanks to a blend of plant-based ingredients and essential oils, such as sunflower seed oil, ylang ylang, geranium and citrus. And, yes, it smells divine (Walmart, $13).

Living Proof

Imagine a spray that blocks humidity, protects against frizz before it even starts and works on dry hair (so you’re totally tossing it into your bag for quick touch-ups). There’s a reason Jennifer Aniston backs Living Proof — their frizz-fighting line of products is fantastic (Living Proof, $22).

Biolage Conditioner

Biolage Conditioner

This great wash-out conditioner contains properties of the water-resistant camellia flower, which controls frizz even in 97 percent humidity. This fantastic (and fab-smelling) product is part of Matrix Biolage Smoothproof’s three-part anti-frizz system, which includes shampoo and serum (Ulta, $25).

This leave-in treatment contains Moroccan argan oil and coconut extract to control your frizz all day long. One or two (at most) pumps before you blow dry go a long way toward creating a barrier between your hair and crazy summer humidity. Don’t get carried away with this oil, though — particularly if you have fine or thin hair (Amazon, $20).

The master of dry shampoo has also figured out a way to create an incredibly lightweight serum that features an amazing, but subtle, fragrance. This serum can add shine and smoothness to thick, coarse hair, but feels weightless on fine hair. A Sephora fan favorite (Sephora, $35).

Aussie

Proof that a great product doesn’t have to cost a million dollars to work. This deep conditioner, which contains jojoba seed oil and Australian aloe, is a long hair savior. Add a dime-size amount to your hair in the shower, leave on for three minutes, and expect to see softer, more manageable hair with little to no frizz (Walmart, $3).
