Many of us have been there: We step outside on a hot, humid day, only for our perfectly-coiffed hair to transform into a frizzy, static-y mess. While the common response is to blame the weather, the state of our hair can actually be at the root of the common hair concern. That’s because, if your hair is overly dry or damaged, it will absorb moisture wherever it can—including from the air. Alternatively, if you have super curly hair, it’s possible that the cuticles of your strands aren’t super tight and, as a result, can lift to let in moisture from the environment, leading to frizzy aftermath.
Suffice to say, ensuring that your hair is at the height of its health is the best way to ward off the potential effects of humidity wreaking havoc on it the moment you step outside. Fortunately, doing so won’t cost hundreds of dollars nor will it require endless salon appointments. In fact, it won’t even require swapping out your favorite shampoo and conditioner or cutting yourself off from any and all heat styling. Instead, it’s all about finding anti-frizz treatment sprays, balms, and oils that can easily be incorporated into your existing haircare routine. Where some are designed to be used on damp hair, others can be worked into dry strands; and where some are specifically designed to be used with heat, others enhance the air-drying process.
With that in mind, keep reading to find 10 haircare products that help fight frizz. You can find them at Sephora, Ulta, and other beauty and drug stores—or you can immediately add them to your digital cart with the handy links, below.
Color Wow Dream Coat Supernatural Spray Anti Frizz Treatment
My personal be-all, end-all for shiny, frizz-free hair is Color Wow’s Dream Coat Supernatural Spray Anti-Frizz Treatment. Truly, it’s a godsend for my long, fine, color-treated tresses, which have a tendency to frizz up when there’s the slightest bit of moisture in the air. The reason this spray works so well is because it’s made with moisturizing calendula extract, color-protecting chamomilla extract, and a proprietary anti-humidity complex designed to lock in moisture and lock out frizz. All you have to do is spritz it into damp hair before heat styling as you wish. (Fun Fact: It’s sold in travel-size, too!)
IGK Good Behavior Spirulina Protein Anti-Frizz Smoothing Balm
Prefer a balm to a spray? This popular one by IGK is made with strengthening spirulina protein, moisturizing shea butter, and “Innovative Bonding Polymers” that work to create a similar effect to a salon keratin treatment. Only, it costs a lot less than a full appointment and can be used daily for stellar frizz-free effects.
Kérastase Chroma Absolu Anti-Frizz Leave-In Treatment for Color-Treated Hair
Here we have another anti-frizz spray that’s great not only for dry hair but color-treated tresses, too. While you might think of acids more with the topic of skincare, this well-liked spray is formulated with amino acid, lactic acid, and tartaric acid to dive deep into strands in an effort to heal any and all damage associated with the coloring process. And, in doing so, it makes way for smooth, frizz-free strands with each spritz.
Verb Ghost Weightless Hair Oil
While oils are typically thought to be too heavy for fine hair, this popular one from Verb is great for all hair textures and types. Formulated with argan oil, rice bran oil, bamboo extract, moringa oil, soy protein, and other hair-health-enhancing ingredients, a single drop of this oil goes a long way for fighting frizz. Plus, unlike many anti-frizz products, which are designed to be paired with heat, Verb’s Ghost Oil can be used on damp or dry hair, with or without heat.
Moroccanoil Moroccanoil Treatment
Another oil-based anti-frizz treatment—the OG, really—is Moroccanoil’s Moroccanoil Treatment. The argan oil-infused hair treatment has earned over 160,000 heart-shaped seals of approval on Sephora.com thanks to just how well it works to smooth strands and impart them with next-level shine.
Bumble and bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Heat & UV Protective Primer
This hair oil stands apart due to its formulation, which is designed to be sprayed on, not massaged in. Beloved by over 130,000 Sephora shoppers, the Bumble and bumble Invisible Oil is meant to be used as the ultimate leave-in treatment, as it works as a detangler, heat protectant, and anti-frizz treatment, all in one.
Olaplex No. 6 Bond Smoother Reparative Styling Creme
Celebrity-adored haircare brand, Olaplex, is responsible for one of Sephora’s most cult-favorite anti-frizz products: the No. 6 Bond Smoother Reparative Styling Creme. Made with bond-building technology, the smooth styling creme is formulated to strengthen strands while also protecting them against environmental aggressors (like free radicals, but humidity, too).
Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Glossy Nourishing Anti-Frizz Hair Oil
If your goal is frizz-free hair that smells absolutely heavenly, it’s time to reach for Sol de Janeiro’s Brazilian Glossy Nourishing Anti-Frizz Hair Oil. Formulated with the same scent as the brand’s best-selling Bum Bum Cream, this hair oil—which is infused with hydrating patauá oil, shine-enhancing buriti fruit oil, and smoothing pequi oil—leaves hair smelling delicious, feeling soft, and looking frizz-free for up to 72 hours after use.
Pureology Color Fanatic Multi-Tasking Leave-In Spray
By looking at this unassuming bottle, you’d likely never guess that it holds the power of 21 hair-perfecting results within its formula. Designed for all hair types and textures, the Pureology Color Fanatic Multi-Tasking Leave-In Spray is designed to transform hair with each spritz—it works as a detangler, color preserver, split end sealer, heat protectant, anti-frizz treatment, and more.
Gisou Propolis Infused Polishing Primer
Of course, if you like working product into your hair with your hands, Gisou’s Propolis Infused Polishing Primer is another worthy contender for your anti-frizz haircare routine. Made with mirsalehi propolis, which is rich in vitamins, minerals, and hair-healthy oils, this sweet almond-infused primer balm helps protect hair against heat styling while preventing it from developing frizz throughout the day.
