How to tame frizzy hair and restore smoothness & shine

We share our best solutions for dry and frizzy hair


When it comes to our hair, we’re all about embracing what nature’s given us, whether that’s a halo of ringlets or thick wavy locks. But let’s be honest, if you’ve been ‘blessed’ with dry and frizzy hair, it can be hard to love. Tricky to manage at the best of times, it takes on a life of its own when summer’s heat and humidity hits. Thankfully it doesn’t have to be a lifelong love-hate relationship - there are solutions! From the drug store hero that will save on static to a leave-in conditioner that will transform your routine, read on to discover our frizz-fighting secrets.

What causes dry, frizzy hair?

Understanding why hair is dry and frizzy is the first step to formulating a battle plan. Put simply, when strands are damaged or dry, the outer cuticle lifts allowing moisture to pass through. Strands swell up giving them that fluffy appearance we all love to hate. And although thick, coarse and curly hair is more susceptible, frizz doesn’t discriminate! Anyone with over-processed, damaged locks can suffer from fuzz.

Skip the sulfates

Good frizz-taming starts in the shower. Shampoos with sulfates can strip and dehydrate your strands, causing hair to soak up humidity in the air like a sponge. To avoid a fried and fuzzy look, choose a sulfate-free cleanser like our micellar-based gentle shampoo.

Lather up less

Repeat after us: natural oils are frizz fighters. While we all love the feeling of a squeaky-clean crop, shampooing your hair washes away the natural oils that dry hair badly needs. In essence, less washing equals less frizz. Cut down shampoo sessions to 2 – 3 times a week and your dried-out locks will reap the benefits.

Resist the rub

On designated shampoo days, how you dry your frizzy hair is just as important as how you wash it. Resist the urge to vigorously rub it dry, instead pat the moisture out and wrap it in a soft and absorbent microfiber towel. This method avoids ruffling the hair’s cuticles, diminishing static and frizz. Plus, hair dries quicker making blowouts and styling easier. Not bad for something that costs under $10 from the drug store.

To brush or not to brush?

This is an age-old question for girls fighting the frizz. While expert options vary, we say you know your hair best so experiment and see what works for you. If you do need to brush or detangle your hair though, there are some tools that can help...

Don’t brush when wet

Hair is most vulnerable to damage when wet so tugging on tangles with a regular brush is asking for trouble. Running a wide-tooth comb through instead will minimize breakage and help spread any styling products.

Natural brushes are best

When it comes to blow-drying your hair or everyday detangling, a natural bristle brush can make a difference. The soft bristles won’t tug on strands and the natural fibers will even help distribute hair’s natural oils for soft, silky tresses.


Rethink the rinse

Here’s the truth: 95% of your regular rinse-off conditioner ends up getting washed down the drain so a leave-in conditioner, one that works all day long, can be a game-changer for dehydrated hair. Our no-rinse oil is specially formulated to treat dry and frizzy hair, plus ‘no-rinse’ means it keeps working all day, hydrating and frizz-taming for an incredible 24 hours.
