How to Deal with Frizzy Hair   

Contrary to popular belief, no hair type or texture is immune to having to deal with frizz. But don’t worry: We’ve got you covered with these helpful hair smoothing tips and tricks, plus the best hair product picks.

What Causes Frizz?

Dry hair and frizzy hair go hand and hand. When your hair is dry, moisture in the air penetrates the hair cuticle, causing the hair to swell and expand, and get frizzy and fluffy. It’s a basic law of science that moisture will always move from areas of high concentration to low concentration—which is also why muggy, humid weather can mean major frizz.

Start in the Shower

It’s not just styling products that can help you manage frizz; using the right system of shampoo and conditioner makes a huge difference. The more moisturising the better. Try Frizz Dismiss Shampoo and Frizz Dismiss Conditioner, which provides humidity protection and hair smoothing.

How You Dry Your Hair Matters

Step one: Swap your usual towel for a microfiber one or even a cotton T-shirt; both are softer and gentler on the hair, and will help keep the cuticle smooth and closed. (A closed cuticle means less moisture can get in and your hair is more likely to stay smoother looking.) Step two: Be gentle, instead of aggressively rubbing it all over your head, think of blotting or lightly squeezing out the water. The less you can rough up the cuticle during the drying process, the better. And the same applies once you reach for your blow-dryer. Avoid flipping your head upside down or working your fingers throughout your hair. Lightly comb or brush your hair downward as you blow-dry, and finish with a shot of cool air to help seal the cuticle. Go slowly and take your time, and ultimately, your result will be hair that appears less frizzy for longer.

 Layer Products for the Best Results

Cocktailing the right frizz-fighting products is the best hair smoothing secret. Frizz Dismiss offers options for all kinds of textures; try the Frizz Dismiss Anti Static Oil Mist Spray if you have fine hair, the Instant Deflate Leave-In Smoothing Serum if you have medium hair, or the Rebel Tame Leave-In Smoothing Control Cream if you have coarse hair. Either way, keep them  near your shower and apply right after you get out. The drier your hair gets the harder it becomes to change the style. So, if you get dressed or put on makeup first, by the time you finally get back to your hair, it may have already started to frizz. Once your hair is dry, look for a finishing product to add extra shine. Diamond Oil Glow Dry Oil or the smoothing and heat-protecting Iron Shape Thermal Holding Spray.

Hair Mists, Sprays & Perfumes

There’s such a wide range of hair mists, sprays and perfumes on the market that it can be hard to know where to begin. We’ve picked a few of our favourites for the season below.

Looking for bounce and volume?

Reach for a Hair Mist! Hair mists contain a variety of different minerals and vitamins designed to strengthen and enrich your hair. Italian brand Davines uses turnip extract in it’s Volu mist to provide hair with vitamins A, B and C.
Davines - Volu Hair MistTo use, spray Davines Volu (RRP £25.15 Our Price £22.45) onto towel dried hair to add volume and shine. This product can be used on all hair types but is especially effective on fine or limp hair

Looking to add texture?

Maybe you should try a hair salt spray! Salt Sprays are great for adding waves and movement to your hair for that tousled beach siren look.

Alterna Caviar Style  Sea Salt Spray  (RRP £29.50 Our Price £17.95) can be used when air drying your hair and helps to protect hair from heat.
Alterna Caviar Style Sea Salt SprayDead Sea Salt adds body and waves whilst Caviar extracts help to add shine and prevent dryness. Use on damp hair.

Looking to scent your hair?

Are you a classic beauty who is fond of spritzing your favourite fragrance on your hair? You could be doing yourself a disservice due to the higher alcohol content in perfumes which have the potential to dry out your hair. Hair perfumes, sometimes also referred to as mists, are especially formulated for hair, meaning that you can protect and hydrate your hair whilst also smelling fabulous – something to consider if you suffer from dehydrated locks. Sachajuan’s protective hair perfume 50ml helps protect against static and uses ocean silk technology to provide UV protection. It’s also great for when you want to freshen up your hair without reaching for the dry shampoo. Dior, Yves Saint Laurent and Mugler have also formulated hair-friendly versions of some of their cult scents.

Kérastase’s new Soleil Huile Sirene (literally translated as sunshine mermaid oil) is a beach bi-phase oil mist which offers softness, subtle scent and shine for hair exposed to sun, salt and UV rays.

Dry Shampoo

Of course, there are some moments in life when you need to get rid of excess oil in a hurry. Dry Shampoo is a key product to pack with you for festivals and glamping or even when you need an extra bit of volume for hair flattened by humidity . A spritz of dry shampoo at the roots goes a long way – just spray and massage into your scalp for sneaky styling on the go.
