Choosing Anti-Frizz Hair Products

Inevitably we all have bad hair days now and again. But, if you happen to have thick, coarse and possibly wavy hair, the chances of finely style hair becoming a frizzy mop-top dramatically increase. Summertime's low humidity is a real frenemy to hair. It distracts us with its sunshine and warm breezes, and then when we least expect it we look like a complete frizz ball. To make matters worse, we often lose control of our manes at the most inconvenient times, such as right before a meeting, wedding, or a special date.

The good news is that we do not have to take it as if our hands were tied behind our backs. There are so many anti-frizz products on the market it can be a little intimidating figuring out which ones will work best on our hair. The x-factor is to use an anti-frizz product at the beginning of the styling process while your hair is still wet. By doing this, you will lock in moisture down to the hair shaft, and properly moisturized hair is the primary goal in fighting the frizzies. It helps to begin the process to your advantage by using a moisturizing shampoo that combats frizz. Popular brands proving successful include:

  • Pantene Pro V Restoratives Frizz Control
  • BioSilk
  • Sunmilk De-Frizz
  • John Frieda Frizz Ease Shampoo
  • Suave
  • Dove

A great aspect about hair care products is that you do not have to restrict your use to any one hair care line. Mixing and matching products to meet your needs is de rigueur for obtaining fabulous tresses. It will be your preference and per your needs as to whether or not you also use a conditioning product. After washing, follow with an effective anti-frizz finishing product to further seal the moisture into your locks. Five top-rated anti-frizz hair care products are:

  • Herbal Essence's None of Your Frizziness
  • Paul Mitchell's Super Skinny Serum
  • Marc Anthony's Simply Straight Instant Straightening Cream
  • John Frieda's Frizz-Ease Hair Serum
  • Citre Shine's Shine Miracle Anti-Frizz Polishing Serum

If you are someone blessed with curly hair, you are more susceptible to frizz and breakage. Manage those curls by using some of the following tips:

  • Use hair care products specifically designed for curly hair. Curly hair is prone to breakage, dryness, and brittleness. Look for ingredients such as coconut oil and aloe vera for moisture.
  • Limit shampooing to two or three times per week. Otherwise, you will counteract the benefits of your products, as well as strip your hair of its natural oils, which help to defeat frizziness.
  • Allow your hair to air dry as much as possible and it is best not to brush it before it thoroughly dries. Towel drying will absorb the moisture from your curly tresses, so instead just blot your hair with the towel to absorb the extra wetness.
  • Do not finger or play with your curls. Excessive touching actually creates friction, which leads to frizz and possibly tangles.
