4 Products To Fight Fall Frizz
The air is getting dryer, and that means statically-charged strands and poofy, frizzy locks. What’s worse is your beloved hair dryer and heated styling tools tend to add to the problem by stripping your hair of moisture and natural oils in an already dry season. No need to panic, try these super-smoothing products to get the sleek, shiny hair you crave:
- Bain de Terre argon oil & passion flower COLOR THERAPY STYLING OIL. A little goes a long way with this incredible oil. It’s formulated for color-treated hair, but works wonders for natural locks as well. A blend of argon, mono, and passion flower oils improves hair’s resilience and adds silkiness and shine. Stressed out strands will be frizz free with only a few drops.
- DevaCurl One Condition Hydrate. Those with curly hair, this one goes out to you. Without proper hydration, your bouncy spirals will turn into a frizzy, shapeless mess. The natural botanicals in this cream smooth and moisturize hair for healthy, lightweight curls.
- Miss Jessie’s Original Pillow Soft Curls. Say goodbye to heavy creams and crunchy styling products. This lotion uses avocado, coconut, sweet almond, and olive oils to heal strands and give your hair a voluminous healthy bounce.
- Klorane Mousse With Chamomile. Lighter and thinner than a typical mousse, this amazing formula leaves hair smoother, shinier, and brighter after every use. Chamomile is rich in apigenine, a golden pigment that works especially well in blonde hair. No worries though, my darker-haired friends, this mousse brightens hair, but won’t leave you with bleached locks.

About a week ago, I was pumping through a workout through the awesome tutorials at ToneItUp. In the midst of a thigh-burning lunge, I was suddenly struck by hair envy. Has anyone else noticed how Katrina’s hair is out of this world?
This babe has some of the most admirable beachy waves I’ve ever seen—there doesn’t appear to be a frizzy in sight. I was so intrigued I dropped the weights and immediately began looking up how to mimic Katrina’s hair instead of her equally enviable abs.
In the course of my research, I discovered that the source of frizz may all boil down to our bath towels and the oh-so cute turbans I make to dry my strands after showering.
As it turns out, the fibers in most bath towels can leave hair frizzy after all that rubbing and twisting to rid it of excess water. The weight of a towel turban will also pull on the roots, which tends to promote breakage. All things I don’t opt-in for.
So instead, I’ve been taking a tip from Katrina at ToneItUp.com. You can try it too—all you need is a plain white cotton t-shirt. Surprise—you even get to keep the turban!
