With sleek buns and ponytails currently en vogue thanks to the "clean girl" look, frizz has become a problem we have no choice but to tackle. This can be especially difficult given our hot weather and humid climate, but taming frizz isn’t impossible. You just need to be strategic with the products you use, the hairstyles you try, and even the haircuts you get. Below, we share a few tips on how you can tame frizz and flyaways for good.
How to Tame Frizzy Hair
1. Use a nourishing shampoo.
Frizz is caused by your hair searching for moisture in the atmosphere, so it’s important to keep your hair hydrated with the products you use, including shampoo. Look for one that can help hydrate and nourish your strands. You’d be surprised by the difference that using the right shampoo can make.
For healthy, hydrated hair, try the TRESemmé Salon Strength Shampoo. It has a bond-rebuilding formula that can strengthen your strands and get rid of buildup without stripping your hair of moisture.

2. Don’t skip conditioner.
Conditioner is one of the most underrated products in your shower routine. Using one regularly can definitely help you manage frizz, especially if you have color-treated or damaged hair. It helps lock in moisture so that your hair will stay tamed throughout the day.
Since conditioner is so important, you won’t have to feel bad about splurging on the right one. The Olaplex No. 5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner has become a cult-favorite in its own right, and for good reason. It addresses dryness, damage, frizz, and split ends. It can also be used on any hair texture, whether it’s straight, wavy, curly, or permed.

3. Avoid towel-drying your tresses.
Friction from towel-drying can damage your hair cuticles, making your strands more prone to dehydration. Instead of using a thick towel to dry your hair, consider using an old t-shirt or a microfiber towel. There are even hair turbans specially designed to address this problem.
One you can try is the Aquis Rapid Dry Lisse Hair Turban. As its name suggests, it can quickly dry your tresses sans the damage. It also has a button fascinator so you won’t have to worry about it slipping off.

4. Use a leave-in treatment.
Using treatments after you shower can help create a barrier between your strands and the atmosphere, locking in moisture and preventing frizz. Leave-in treatments also protect your hair from heat-styling and prevent damage and moisture loss, making them a great all-around product.
One that pros love is the L'Oreal Liss Unlimited Anti-Frizz Blow-Dry Oil. Its star ingredient is evening primrose oil, which can help make your hair shiny and more manageable. This oil also contains omega fatty acids, which help strengthen the hair and prepare it for heat-styling.

5. Smooth them down.
When all else fails, you can always smooth frizz and flyaways down with styling products, especially if you’re going for a sleek look. For a look that’s neat but not stiff, try a hair mousse. The Got2B Volumaniac Bodifying Mousse is a great one to have in your hair arsenal since you can use it for smooth ‘dos or voluminous styles.
It also helps to use a boar-bristle brush when smoothing down your hair. The Acca Kappa Boar & Nylon Bristles Brush is one we don’t regret investing in. It can evenly distribute your hair, and the bristles polish each strand for an extra shiny look.

Best Haircuts for Taming Frizzy Hair
Your haircut can also affect how frizz looks. If you’re due for a cut, check out some stylish yet easy-to-manage styles below.
If you want to keep your hair’s length, go for the long bob. It isn’t as drastic as a normal bob, but you’re able to get rid of the ends of your hair, which is usually the most damaged part that frizzes up.
This trendy ‘do can easily disguise frizz and flyaways thanks to the piecey layers.
3. Wolf Cut
Just like the mullet, a wolf cut can help hide flyaways because of the layers. This version is a little less extreme, too, so you won’t have to leave your comfort zone to disguise frizz.
3. Pixie Cut
A little frizz can actually give pixie cuts a cool, volumized look. If you’re ready for a huge change, you should definitely consider a pixie.
4. Curly Layers
If you have curly hair, adding layers will help make taming frizz a lot easier. They can also add shape and volume to your look without looking overwhelming.
