brings sunshine and warm breezes and the beach, sure, but it also brings
humidity—and that means insta-frizz for a lot of us. Want quick ways to tame
before the frizz fight begins? Read on for our six best tricks.
The best shampoos for taming
frizz are usually free of sulfates. Also, every time you wash your hair, you’re
stripping away its natural oils, and it’s the natural oils that tend to be
great frizz fighters. Note: It’s totally okay to
skip a wash every now and then.

Let your conditioner sit in
your hair for several minutes before washing it out. Conditioner coats your
hair with moisturizers, keeping it from becoming too dry and thus, frizzy. On
super humid days, leave a little on the ends when you get out of the shower to
keep your hair coated till sundown.

is important: Do not completely dry your hair with your towel! Instead, dab the
towel through your hair, leaving it a little wet. Even better, invest in a
microfiber towel. It is a lot softer than a normal towel and keeps the hair
shaft smoother—which means less breakage.

pillows for silky locks
If you go to bed with wet
hair, see if you can swap out your pillowcase for a silkier one! A regular
cotton pillowcase could keep your cuticles from sitting nice and smooth.

going against your hair’s natural drying pattern and keeps strands healthier

in a frizz serum will make all the difference. Apply your product of choice
throughout the ends of your hair. Stay away from your roots because you don’t
want your locks to look greasy. Try out different products to see what works
best for you, but avoid anything with alcohol in it!
