If you have frizzy hair, then you know that the struggle to keep your strands shiny and hydrated is real—like, really real.

So, what are the best products for frizzy hair? It’s time to arm yourself with the right hair styling and hair care products—and incorporate some new strategies into your hair care routine while you're at it. Frizz is a reflection of your hair’s overall health, after all, so it’s important that you work on repairing your strands ASAP. Ready to get started? We’re sharing our best frizzy hair products for curly and straight strands, including our best shampoo and conditioner for frizzy hair, plus tips on how to use them.

FRIZZY HAIR PRODUCT #1. THE RIGHT SHAMPOO

Keeping your strands healthy starts in the shower, and for frizzy hair, this is especially important. Don’t just use any old shampoo—choose one that’s specifically formulated to manage frizz and replenish moisture. Our best shampoo for frizzy hair is the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Frizz-Defy Shampoo, which is sulfate-free and formulated with marula oil. This shampoo will gently cleanse frizz-prone hair while also providing humidity and frizz control, manageability, and luminosity. To use, simply apply the shampoo on wet hair, focusing mainly on your roots. Gently massage onto hair to create a thick lather, then rinse and follow up with the right conditioner (more on that next!).

FRIZZY HAIR PRODUCT #2. AND CONDITIONER

Skipping conditioner is a beauty no-no—regardless of your hair type. After shampooing, use the L’Oreal Paris EverPure Frizz-Defy Conditioner, which is our best conditioner for frizzy hair, to help condition frizz-prone hair for humidity and frizz control, manageability, and luminosity. Apply the conditioner to wet hair and massage it through your strands gently, focusing the product mainly on your lengths and ends. Leave it on for one to three minutes, then rinse out completely.

FRIZZY HAIR PRODUCT #3. DEEP CONDITIONING TREATMENT

Managing frizz is all about restoring your mane to its former, healthy, hydrated glory. Once or twice a week, swap out your regular conditioner for a deep conditioner that will go the extra mile in helping to revive your frizz-prone locks. Try the L'Oréal Paris Elvive Total Repair 5 Rapid Reviver Deep Conditioner, which has earned a spot as our best deep conditioner for frizzy hair. Formulated with conditioning serum and almond, the deep conditioning treatment helps repair and fortify each strand. Best of all, it only takes 60 seconds to work!

FRIZZY HAIR PRODUCT #4. 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 tame frizz and flyaways, detangle, and smooth each strand. It also provides humidity protection and helps your locks feel touchably soft, making it one of our best products for curly, frizzy hair. 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, just blow-dry or let your hair dry naturally. You can also apply the same serum on dry hair to tame flyaways, condition split ends, and smooth hair.

FRIZZY HAIR PRODUCT #5. HAIR CREAM

When it comes to smoothing down frizz, it’s hard to beat a hair cream for frizzy hair. We love the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Sleek It Frizz Vanisher Cream, which offers long-lasting frizz control. Simply apply to damp hair, leave in, and blow-dry for a sleek look.

FRIZZY HAIR PRODUCT #6. HEAT PROTECTANT

If you have frizz-prone hair, heat styling tools are probably what keep you sane in the mornings as you get ready for your day. But using tools like blow-dryers, flat irons, and curling wands day in and day out (especially if they’re on the highest heat setting) is likely to lead to more hair woes—and that’s not something you want to deal with on top of trying to manage frizz. Take the proper precautions and apply a heat protectant before using any heat tools. Try the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray, which provides 450-degree protection. To use, simply spray it onto damp or dry hair section by section, then style.

FRIZZY HAIR PRODUCT #7. BLOW-DRY PRIMER

Trying to replicate that perfect salon-quality blowout from the comfort of your own bathroom? Add a blow-dry primer to your hair care routine. The L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Quick Dry Primer Spray cuts down on your drying time and works double duty by also providing heat protection. 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.

FRIZZY HAIR PRODUCT #8. HAIR SPRAY

Keeping your hairstyle in place—especially when you have frizz-prone hair—can be a major task. That’s why hair spray is another one of the best products for frizzy hair. So much so that it should essentially be your 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 offers long-lasting hold and shine. Spritz the hairspray on in short bursts, holding it about 12 inches away from your head.

FRIZZY HAIR PRODUCT #9. WAVE SPRAY

Beachy waves are super-trendy—and you can get the look year-round. Spray the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle 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.

FRIZZY HAIR PRODUCT #10. HAIR MASK

Not only can a hair mask help repair your strands and keep frizz at bay, but it’ll also provide you with some much-deserved moments of self-care. A few times a week, try to add a nourishing hair mask into your routine. If you have frizzy hair with curls, try the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Curls Re-Nourish Mask, pairing it with the L'Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Curls Shampoo and the L'Oréal Paris Elvive Extraordinary Oil Curls Conditioner. This system instantly penetrates to quench and calm curly hair.
