Frizz has been the bane of my existence from a very young age. Humidity makes it it’s worst, and makes me assume that my parents have had it out for me since before I was born when they decided to relocate to Florida. I can’t even imagine what it’s like to be able to wash your hair and just… go. I have a whole hair regimen that must be in place before I can even “go” anywhere. 

Remember when designers such as Marc Jacobs tried to convince us real-world gals that frizz was actually cool by throwing mayjah frizzed-out hairdos onto the runways at NYFW?

LOLOL. Nice try, fancy fashion people.

Even with my carefully curated hair regimen in place, I am not frizz-free. I think I’ve just come to terms with the fact that I will never be entirely frizz-free. Of course, I could always get one of those keratin treatments that promise frizz-free results, but I am not about that straight hair life, guys! 

So, since I already know that I’m never going to completely eliminate frizz, the next best thing I can do is learn how to manage it. It’s as easy as that! The key is so painfully obvious: MOISTURE. Moisture is key, guys! 

The first step for me is to wash my hair with a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. Shampoos and conditioners for curly hair tend to focus on moisture-factor, so I tend to lean towards those. For non-curly hair, I really like Redken’s Frizz-Free Shampoo + Conditioner. For a green beauty alternative, I’m totally loving the Rare Elements Shampoo + Conditioner. I’ve spoken about this conditioner on Periscope before, and it is incredibly moisturizing. Like, if you leave a little in your hair by accident, your hair will feel a little on the greasy side. So a little bit goes a long way!

The next steps are CRUCIAL, guys. I’m not trying to be overdramatic or anything, but what I have to do immediately after stepping out of the shower will make or break my hair. No joke. As soon as I come out of the shower, I need to brush out my hair while it’s still wet and then I add a dollop of coconut oil (I swear by the CocovĂ­t Coconut Oil) in between my hands and apply to my hair. Focus on those precious ends, you guys! Coconut oil is also a great hair mask option before you shower- load up your hair with the oil before you go to sleep, and then wash out in the morning. It’s a miracle. Trust me.

After coconut oil is added to the hair, I wrap my hair up in a makeshift turban. This is where people will have meltdowns- people say to never use your towel to wrap your hair up in because the terrycloth will make it more frizzy and damage your curls and blah blah blah. I’m incredibly lazy and I will exclusively use a towel to throw my hair up in, and I don’t notice much of a difference between using a towel or an old t-shirt. So, you do you, guys. 

Leave your hair up in that super sexy turban for a few minutes. You don’t want your hair to dry too much, because now it’s time to add styling products. You can comb through your hair again if you want, but that’s generally too much work for me. I spray my hair with the Redken Frizz-Free Spray, and then add my Ouidad Heat & Humidity Gel section-by-section to my hair. This combination works wonders. The Ouidad gel keeps my curls defined, and if I use enough, protects my hair from unsightly frizz. I spritz a little more Redken spray for good luck, and then wrap my hair up again.

After about half an hour of my hair being wrapped up, I let my hair down and let me hair air dry. I don’t use a blow dryer (even with a diffuser attachment) because my hair will still get crazy frizzy. Air drying is the way to go for me.

And PS, I only wash my hair twice a week- three times if I do something particularly sweaty or smelly. Gotta let those natural hair oils swirl around on my scalp (doesn’t that sound disgusting?). For frizz touch-ups throughout the week, I’ll use a bit of coconut oil to tame the flyaways, or I’ll spritz a little of that Redken spray. 

And that’s all there is to it! It’s not terribly fussy, but it does require some time and patience. Curly hair, you guys. The struggle is so real.

What do you guys do to keep your frizz under control?

  5. As a fellow Floridian, I feel your frizzy hair pain! lol My poor daughter has super curly hair, so the second she steps outside it's frizz city. She's only 2.5, so she doesn't yet know how awful her future hair days will be lol. I've never thought of using coconut oil in my hair though, I need to get on that!

  6. I don't have curly hair but I do know the bane of frizz. I don't use terry cloth on my hair but I have two towels made especially for hair and I do find they help a little.

  8. Ugh I have such incredibly frizzy hair! I love the Ouidad Climate Control range but I haven't tried combining the gel with anti-frizz sprays. Will do so from now on - thanks very much for that tip!

  10. My hair is thin but can get frizzy in the summer. I have the Frizz Dismiss shampoo and conditioner and they work really well for me!

  12. It's been years since I have used anything from Redken and sadly - unless they changed up their formula of products, I can't use anything from Ouidad, it always left my hair really dry. A friend of mine says they changed up some things so it may work now - I may give this particular product a try. My hair is all over the place right now... so a good curly hair product for frizz free hair is a must ;D

  13. I only have mild frizz, but am usually too lazy with my hair to do too much about it. Love seeing your routine!

  14. My thick coarse hair gets frizzy too, and my routine is similar to yours. Good moisturizing shampoo, heavy duty conditioner, Hubaloo turban, John Frieda 3 Day Straight Spray, argan oil, but truth be told, the only thing that really works for me is a straight iron
