We all love summer. From Fourth of July barbecues to day trips to the beach, the living is easy between the months of June and August. The one thing that seemed to miss the memo? Our hair. Beyond bug bites and sunburn, the biggest beauty challenge during the summer has always been overcoming frizzy hair. With the added heat and humidity, it can be tough battling the elements and achieving sleek and shiny tresses.
Below, we rounded up some of our beauty favorites so you can avoid the dreaded bad hair day this summer and banish frizz once and for all. You can thank us later… 😜
Bumble and Bumble Defrizz
The secret to smooth and touchably soft hair isn’t so secret anymore with Bumble and Bumble’s Defrizz. Applied to damp or dry hair, this lightweight serum won’t weigh down finer hair while taming flyaway strands and frizzy roots with just a few drops.
Living Proof No Frizz Humidity Shield
True to its name, Living Proof’s Humidity Shield provides six times more humidity protection with the frizz-fighting molecule, OFPMA. Spray Humidity Shield on dry hair and smooth with your hands to combat frizz and flyaways.
Arrojo Healing Oil
Ever blow dry or straighten your hair to perfection only to end up with a frizzy mess the moment you step outside? Heating or styling products leave your strands more prone to static and frizz. That’s why it’s important to apply a heat protector and replenish your hair with moisture. Use Arrojo’s Healing Oil, formulated without silicons or parabans, to nourish heat-damaged hair and speed up blow dries.
Alterna Bamboo Smooth Anti-Frizz Curl Re-Activating Spray
This one goes out to our more curly-haired readers. Alterna’s Anti-Frizz Curl Re-Activating Spray is designed specifically for curly hair and tames frizzy curls without weighing them down. Mist the Re-Activating Spray on damp or dry hair and scrunch up your curls to reshape them.
Bumble and Bumble Invisible Oil
Feel free to soak up the sun this summer with Bumble and Bumble’s Invisible Oil, made with UVA/UVB filters and heat protection. Formulated with six different oils, the lightweight formula tames flyaways and instantly softens hair for impeccable shine. Work into damp or dry hair to combat frizz.
Arrojo Refresh Dry Conditioner
When it comes to frizzy hair, the more conditioner the better. By preemptively soaking your hair with much-needed hydration, you’re taking steps against frizz later by preventing your hair from soaking up excess moisture from the humid air. For post-shower hydration, use Arrojo’s Refresh Dry Conditioner to combat static and frizz. Spray on damp or dry hair, starting from the mid-lengths to the ends.
Bumble and Bumble Grooming Cream
Made for girls who want smooth and shiny hair but hate to work for it, Bumble and Bumble’s Grooming Cream creates a smooth and polished finish without any of the hassle. Work the Grooming Cream into dry or damp hair for a silky finish, or give your strands a tousle for a more undone, voluminous look. Either way, styling only takes minutes and your hair has never looked better.
