Whether your hair is curly, straight, or wavy, frizz can turn a perfectly styled ’do from a masterpiece to a disaster in a matter of minutes. And sometimes, as hard as you may try to tame your frizzy hair, it can feel like an impossible task. Frizzy hair can actually be a sign that your hair isn’t as healthy as it should be. The good news is, there are several different tips and products you can use to get the smooth and manageable strands you’ve been dreaming of. Keep reading for all the details on our tips for fixing frizzy hair issues and learn how to add some new products into your frizzy hair care routine

Tip #1: Use Cleansing Products Formulated For Frizzy Hair

When treating frizzy hair, you should first consider swapping out your regular hair care products for ones that are designed explicitly for frizz control. Try a coordinating system of frizz-fighting products that includes a shampoo, conditioner, and leave-in treatment like the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Frizz-Defy Shampoo, L’Oréal Paris EverPure-Frizz Defy Conditioner, and the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Total Repair 5 Power Restore Multi Use treatment. The shampoo and conditioner are formulated with nourishing oils such as marula oil, which can help smooth your strands and provide long-lasting frizz control. The multi-use treatment can be used once a week to give your hair an extra boost of nourishment thanks to the repair proteins in its formula. It also works to help fight various signs of hair damage, including split ends, brittle strands, and more. 

Tip #2: Pick The Right Styling Products

It might be tempting to blow-dry your hair immediately after you hop out of the shower, but letting your mane air dry could be the best option in order to avoid frizz. Use a heat-free volumizing mousse to give your hair a bouncy finish. Try the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse to liven up your strands. Apply an egg-sized amount of the mousse on damp hair and then gently scrunch to style it. 

Editor’s Note: If you can’t avoid using a hot tool, make sure to use a frizz-taming heat protectant, like the L'Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths Heat Slayer Pre-Iron Spray Leave-In. It has a lightweight formula that will offer up to 450-degree heat protection and works as a leave-in spray to reduce frizz. 

Tip #3: Use The Right Brush

It’s important to be mindful of the hair brushes you use. Not all brushes are created equal, and using the wrong one could lead to knots, tangles, and frizzy hair. If you’re working on wet hair, it’s essential that you use a brush designed for wet strands since your mane is at its most fragile state when wet. When your hair is dry, stick to using a boar bristle brush which can help smooth and distribute your hair’s natural oils evenly throughout your strands. This can also help reduce the appearance of frizz. 

Hair Tip #4: Treat Your Split Ends 

Split ends are a common hair concern that almost everyone will deal with at some point in their hair care journey. They can leave your mane looking frizzy, unmanaged and delay your journey to long hair (if that’s your goal). To help prevent split ends and avoid an unwanted chop, try using the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths No Haircut Cream Leave In Conditioner. It's formulated with a blend of strengthening ingredients, including castor oil, vitamins B3, and B5. It works to seal split ends while preventing heat damage caused by styling so you can preserve every last inch of your hair!

Tip #5: Protect Your Hair Poolside 

Chlorine can strip the natural oils from your mane and leave you with weaker strands. The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) suggests wetting and conditioning your hair before entering a pool. You should also wear a tight-fitting swim cap and rinse your hair with cool water and conditioner as soon as you exit the pool to replace lost moisture. 

Tip #6: Seal In Your Style

Frizz can often develop throughout the day or evening—whether that’s from the weather or just by running around doing daily errands. Seal in your style with a frizz-fighting serum like the L’Oréal Paris Dream Lengths Frizz Killer Serum Leave-In, formulated with castor seed oil which supports the keratin in your hair and makes each strand stronger and smoother. Layer one to two pumps of this serum on damp hair before blow-drying. You can also use it on dry hair to tame frizz and static too.

Tip #7: Protect Your Strands At Night

Not protecting your strands at night could also be another reason behind your frizz. Cotton fabrics tend to soak up the natural oils in the hair, leading to dry, frizzy strands. After brushing your hair, wrap your mane with a satin scarf or sleep on satin sheets and pillowcases. Satin is much more gentle on the hair, and it will help prevent any friction or loss of moisture while you toss and turn in your sleep. 

Tip #8: Don’t Dry Your Hair With A Regular Bath Towel

Bath towels are generally made with thicker fibers that can be rough on wet hair, leading to more flyaways and frizz. So swap out your regular towel for a microfiber option with ultra-fine fibers, which will help reduce hair damage when drying. 

Editor’s Tip: Be sure to gently pat your mane dry with a microfiber towel instead of rubbing your strands, which can cause frizz and breakage. Squeeze out the excess water with your hands and use a towel to pat until it’s dry.

Hair Tip #9: Take Care Of Your Scalp

A clean scalp can help support healthy-looking hair. Use a scalp scrub, like the L’Oréal Paris EverPure Sulfate-Free Scalp Care Detox Scrub, to exfoliate and remove excess oil and product build-up. It's safe for color-treated hair, and formulated with apricot seed and menthol to leave your scalp feeling clean and fresh. Just scoop a generous amount of product into your hands and gently massage it onto your wet scalp. Rinse it out thoroughly, and follow up with your shampoo and conditioner. 

Tip #10: Go Natural

Chemicals in hair dye, perms, and chemical straighteners can leave your hair over-processed, resulting in visible breakage, split ends, and other damage that promotes unruly-looking hair. Consider embracing your natural hair texture to reduce the likeliness of frizz. If you have wavy or curly hair, try using the L’Oréal Paris Elvive Dream Lengths Super Curls Leave-In, a deeply nourishing hair cream that can help create soft and bouncy curls. It includes sunflower seed oil, which helps to lock in moisture. Apply a generous amount of product to damp hair, scrunch, and then you’re all set! 

Tip #11. Switch Up Your Style

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. Need some hairstyle inspo? Check out our story on 10 Easy Hairstyles for Frizzy Hair

Tip #12: Slick It Back

When in doubt, slick your frizzy strands back into a low, sleek ponytail or bun. 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-looking shine. 

Editor’s Note: Don’t go overboard with the gel, which can leave your strands feeling hard and stiff. Use a small amount of product and apply it to target areas that need a bit more help.
