Top 6 Products to Tame Frizzy Hair

Frizzy hair is a pain to deal with, especially when you’re a student who doesn’t have time to worry about it. You can’t help but inevitably deal with it when your head looks like a birds nest each morning. I’ve dealt with frizzy hair all my life, and with that, I came to gravitate towards a select few products that are great for the busy student lifestyle. Find yourself in the same situation? Keep reading to see what my top products for frizzy hair are!

Disclaimer: I have fine, wavy hair and my experience with anti-frizz products are limited to that of products that cater to my hair type. However, I have asked a friend who has thick, curly hair what her go-to products are as well as done extensive research to assist in providing a list of products that cater to a wider range of people!

For Fine Hair

1. TRESemme Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Smoothing Spray - $5

I’ve used this heat protectant spray for years and years, being a regular straightening iron user. This spray doesn’t make your hair feel stiff and gross like a lot of other heat protectant sprays do. Plus, it smells good! This is a great, cheap option if you want something that will quickly tame the frizz and the annoying fly-aways. I even use this when I don’t intend on using a straightening iron because it does so well in containing my frizziness! Target has this for a great price.

For Thick, Curly Hair

2. John Frieda Frizz Ease Extra Strength Hair Serum - $7.50

This hair serum works wonderfully for all hair types! Apply 1 pump to wet hair to get the best results, and of course avoid applying directly to the roots. This will leave your hair frizz-free while also continually protecting it from weather-related frizz. You can find this for a great price at Target.


3. Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Anti-Frizz Serum for Frizzy, Dry, Unmanageable Hair - $5

Not only does this serum smell amazing, but it’s formulated with Argan oil from Morocco and apricot. This product does the job well in controlling frizz and hydrating dry hair, and leaves lasting effects for a few days. While the serum is strong, it is also very safe for color-treated hair. Say goodbye to poofy and unmanageable hair, as this even eliminates the need for hair spray. You can find this very affordable hair serum on Amazon.

For All Hair Types

4. Herstyler Hair Repair Serum - $12

This thick serum is ideal for when your hair, especially the ends, has uncontrollable frizz. This one's great especially for you thicker hair babes! This serum contains a mix of Aloe Vera and Argan Oil extracts that leave your hair not only frizz-free but soft, shiny and beautiful! This product is cruelty-free and you can find this for a great price on Amazon.


5. OGX Nourishing Coconut Milk Conditioner - $5.79

This is hands down one of the best conditioners I have ever used, and it’s super cheap too! This conditioner really aids in adding moisture to your hair, leaving it soft, hydrated and frizz-free. If you use this conditioner in combination with any of the items listed above, that’s it. Game over. I’m sorry, frizz who? I don’t know her.

All of the above products can also work wonderfully for men with long hair, but what about men with shorter, hard-to-style hair?

For Men (With Short Hair)

6. ProRituals Hair Wax - $14

This hair wax is perfect for men with short hair, plus it adds texture and low to medium shine. When applied directly to the roots, it can hold hairstyles very well for hair around 2-3 inches long. Place a small amount into your fingertips, and gently graze it over any strays or flyaways for a frizz-free hairstyle that will last all day. You can find this for a great price on Amazon.

While I personally have fine, wavy hair, I have done extensive research on different hair types to provide a fool-proof list of products so anyone reading can find a product for them. Frizzy hair is not fun, and no one deserves to spend hours in front of a mirror trying to tame the mane.
