No amount of hairspray and crossed fingers can fix it. Here’s the thing: tackling this issue doesn’t have to be a stressful ordeal. You can achieve smooth, sleek tresses with some know-how and the right products. Are you ready for some pro tips to on how to get rid of frizzy hair?

1. Choose the Right Shampoo and Conditioner: Never Skip the Basics

The foundation for your hair’s health starts with the basics, so choosing the right shampoo and conditioner is crucial. This doesn’t mean choosing the most expensive product. It just means choosing the right one for your hair or desired outcome. 

What to Do: Opt for sulfate-free shampoos and hydrating conditioners designed for frizzy hair.

Pro Tip: Look for products with ingredients like argan oil or shea butter for extra moisture.

2. Use a Microfiber Towel

Ditch the Regular Towels. Once you do, you’ll never look back. Who knew such a simple change could make all the difference? You might wonder why it makes such a significant difference to your hair. Well, regular towels can be extremely harsh on your hair cuticles. This also contributes to frizz, something we are trying to avoid. 

What to Do: Use a microfiber towel to gently blot your hair dry or gently roll it up in a turban. For a quick money-saving hack, use a cotton T-shirt instead. It soaks up the water quickly and is very gentle on your hair. Helping you on your anti-frizz mission. 

 Pro Tip:Never rub your hair with the towel, which can cause breakage and exacerbate frizz.

3. Invest in a Good Hair Serum

It’s All About the smooth, shiny finish. Hair serums are like the magic potions for frizzy and unruly hair. They go deep into your hair and seal the cuticles, helping by smoothing it and protecting your hair from things like heat and humanity. With the mix of natural oils and silicone, your hair gets an instant boost of shine and smoothness.

What to Do: Apply a small amount to damp or dry hair, focusing on the ends. Avoid putting it directly on the top of your head or you might end up with an oily scalp. Instead, once you’ve put all the product on the ends, you can do the final hair wipe from top to bottom with whatever is left on your hands.

Pro Tip: Don’t apply too much; a little goes a long way. Start with a pea-sized amount and add more if needed.

4. Try a Hair Mask: Weekly TLC for Your Locks

Hair masks are like a spa day for your hair. They are thicker and go deeper than regular conditions to give your hair a hefty dose of hydration and nutrients. This is especially great when trying to deal with frizz or dryness. Yes, it is an extra pesky step to add to your hair routine, but it is all worth it when you get to look at your glossy, healthy locks in the mirror. 

What to Do: Once a week, apply a hydrating hair mask and leave it on for at least 20-30 minutes.

Pro Tip:

  • Cover your hair with a shower cap and apply gentle heat with a blow dryer for an extra boost.
  • Keep in overnight for that extra hydration.

5. Use the Right Hairbrush: Not All Brushes Are Created Equal

Brushing your hair might seem like a simple, mundane activity, one you’ve done all your life, but did you know that it can significantly impact the health and texture of your hair? Yes, even the humble hairbrush can play a role in the eternal battle against frizz. 

Choosing the right brush is crucial. The wrong brush can pull at your hair, disrupt your natural hair oils, and create static electricity – all of which can contribute to frizzy hair. On the flip side, the right brush can smooth the hair shaft, distribute natural oils from your scalp throughout your strands, which basically means you can get the shine you’ve been looking for just by choosing the right brush. Yes, it’s as simple as that.

What to Do:

The safest bet for most hair types when fighting frizz is a natural-bristle brush, such as one made from boar bristles. These brushes are particularly good at moving your scalp’s natural oils down the hair.

Pro Tip:

Steer clear of brushes with plastic or metal bristles. These materials are more likely to generate static electricity. This can turn your tamed tresses into a frizzy nightmare. However, if you have curly or textured hair, consider a wide-tooth comb or a specialized brush  to navigate curls without causing frizz or breakage.

7. Consider a Silk Pillowcase: Beauty Sleep, Literally

Yes, it is not just a boujee extra. The type of pillowcase you choose has a significant impact on your hair. All the tossing and turning throughout the night on the wrong pillowcase can seriously impact that annoying frizz. For example, cotton pillowcases can cause friction and absorb natural oils, making your hair frizzy.

What to Do: Switch to a silk pillowcase for a smoother, friction-free sleep. You’ll wonder why it took you so long to make the change. 

Pro Tip: Not only does it help with frizz, but a silk pillowcase is also better for your skin. Yes, you heard that right: one stone, two beauty hacks.
