Beauty Q&A: Frizzy Hair Tamers
When blow-drying hair straight, a cream can seal in moisture so it doesn't absorb extra moisture from the air. I like Frizz-Ease Secret Weapon Flawless Finishing Crème ($5.99).
Many frizz-fighting ingredients can make fine hair look oily rather than shiny and sleek. I like Kiss My Face Upper Management Styling Gel ($8.95) because it's lightweight but strong enough to hold style, and it shields fine strands from moisture.
When in doubt, Citré Shine Mist Anti-Frizz Spray Laminator ($3.99) is my go-to. It works on every hair type, doesn't contain drying alcohol, and because it's in spray form, the silicone goes on in a super-fine mist.
Making sure frizz-fighting products can really do the work is all about the blow-dry. Blast your hair on high heat until it's 80% dry. Then work product through and finish drying. The more water you remove before product application, the more likely it will help hold your style and fight frizz.
Home Remedies for Frizzy Hair
Rhys suggests using these handy items to tame flyaways:
Lip balm: Dab a bit of a non-waxy balm (like Vaseline) on the tips of your fingers and use it to slick baby hairs into submission.
Hand lotion: After you soften your skin, use the excess on your hands to smooth down kinky pieces.
Dryer sheet: Keep the fabric-softening laundry aid in your purse and run it over strands to combat flyaways.
Static Guard spray: The handy product can stop static cling, but a light mist on your brush will also make fried strands lie flat.
Olive oil: Warm three or four drops in your palms and smooth unruly strands while adding shine.
