When it comes to hair, there’s something we think we can all agree on: Frizz—regardless of what causes it—is so unbelievably annoying. And when you don’t feel your best about your hair, it can seriously throw you off your game. Whether your hair is naturally prone to frizz or humidity is to blame, it can be difficult to style your strands if you don’t have the right tips (or hair care products!) in your arsenal. The good news is that making your hair look smoother and feel more manageable is possible. Yes, really! Want to know how? Keep reading for tips that will help you manage your frizzy hair, including how to pick the best shampoo and conditioner for your hair type.
Just as it's wise to use skin care products formulated for oily skin if you have a shiny complexion, you should consider using products formulated for frizzy hair if frizz is a concern of yours. Not sure where to start? Try a coordinating system of frizz-fighting hair care products that includes a shampoo, conditioner, and hair serum, like the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Frizz-Defy Shampoo, L’Oréal Paris EverPure-Frizz Defy Conditioner, and L’Oréal Paris EverSleek Frizz Finish Oil-In-Serum. Apply the shampoo on wet hair and gently massage it into a lather, then rinse. Follow up with the conditioner, leaving it on for one to two minutes before rinsing out. Finally, once you’re done with washing your hair, apply a small amount of serum through the length of your hair to help tame frizz and fly-aways and smooth each strand.
It might be tempting to blow-dry your hair immediately after you hop out of the shower, but hear us out: Letting your mane air dry could be the best gift you give yourself for prettier hair. Instead of blasting your strands with your blow-dryer, use a heat-free styling spray to give your hair some shape and texture. Try the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray to look like you spent a day at the beach sans frizz—even if you were nowhere near the ocean! Spritz this hair spray onto towel-dried air and scrunch your strands. If you have straight hair, you can braid your hair after using the spray to get the texture you’ve always wanted. If you really can't part with your blow-dryer, make sure to use a frizz-taming heat protectant, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream, first.
It’s important to be mindful of the hair brushes you use. After all, not all brushes are created equal, and using the wrong one could lead to knots, tangles, frizzy hair, and possibly even breakage (ouch!). When your hair is wet, it’s especially fragile, so use a brush specifically designed for wet hair. This can make detangling easier. Meanwhile, when your hair is dry, consider using a boar bristle brush to help smooth strands.

Being gentle is the name of the game. If you tend to aggressively rub your hair with a towel post-shower, it’s time to switch up your hair care technique. Instead, just squeeze out excess water with your hands and use the towel to gently pat your hair dry.
A clean scalp can help support healthy-looking hair. Use a scalp scrub every few weeks to help slough away impurities, flakes, and buildup from dirt and excess oils.
You wouldn’t go to sleep without taking off your makeup, would you? Nope, we thought not! So, why would you hit the hay without brushing your hair? We get it: This might seem unnecessary, but it can actually help. When you brush your hair, you’re distributing your natural oils from root to tip, which can help reduce the appearance of frizz. Now that’s something you can have sweet dreams about!
Sometimes damage from split ends contributes to unhealthy-looking hair. The more it splits, the more likely it is you'll suffer from frizz. The easy solution is to get a haircut. You don't have to cut it all off—simply trimming off the split ends will help tame the appearance of frizz.
Chemicals in hair color, perms, and chemical straighteners can leave your hair highly processed, which can result in visible breakage, split ends, and other damage that promotes unruly-looking hair. Instead of processing hair, consider embracing your natural hair to reduce the likeliness of frizz.
If your hair needs some extra love, consider using a deep conditioner to help replenish your tresses. A few times a week, swap your conditioner out for the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Total Repair 5 Rapid Reviver Deep Conditioner, which can help detangle your locks and prevent hair breakage.
Chlorine can cause damage that builds up over time. Wear a swim cap when you're in the pool and be sure to rinse with cool water as soon as you exit the water.
If you've fallen into a hairstyle rut, your hair may show it. Wearing your hair the same way can weaken it because you're likely putting pressure on the same places every day. Switch things up to relieve the stress points.
Humidity can be one of your greatest enemies when it comes to frizzy hair. You can't control the weather but you can prepare your hair for the elements. Seek out leave-in conditioners and serums that can help smooth your hair and keep frizzies at bay, like the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Smooth Intense Frizz Taming Serum.
When in doubt, slick your frizzy strands back into a low, sleek ponytail. Use a hair gel, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Clean Style Gel, to keep your strands in place with an extra-strong hold and all-day natural shine.
Oftentimes, frizz can develop throughout the day or evening—whether that’s from the weather or dancing the night away. Seal in your style with a frizz-fighting hairspray like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Weather Control Hairspray.
Finishing off your styling session right is essential. For the perfect finishing touch, use a serum or balm that gives your hair a gorgeous shine and a final smoothing.
