4 Steps For Frizz-Free Hair That Really Work

Humidity have you pulling your hair out (and not just because you’re sweating profusely)?! Try these frizz-fighting hair tips for great hair days, in any weather.

Humidity putting you at war with your hair?

Fight frizz and win the battle of the locks for smooth, shiny and frizz-free hair with these 4 tips from Treatment Expert + Senior Stylist Nicole Descoteaux of Butterfly Studio Salon in New York City.

In The Shower…

 It really starts with the shampoo! I recommend an anti-frizz shampoo and conditioner like Shu Eumura’s Sleek Smoothing Shampoo ($48) and Conditioner ($58), which contain cumin oil for superior frizz control. Reduce the number of times you’re shampooing your hair to reduce frizz too (just rinse and condition, if needed, skipping the suds).

When Styling…

Use products with oil-based (instead of moisture-based) ingredients to help control frizz. Moisture attracts more moisture, so reducing the amount of moisture in hair is a sure way to decrease frizz on humid days. Some of my favorite products are Shu Euemura’s Essence Absolute ($68) and Oribe’s Crème For Style ($38).

For straight hair, the best way to protect your hairstyle or blowout is to pull it up in a loose top knot and secure with bobby pins. I recommend spraying it with an anti-humidity spray and then loosening the knot until you achieve your desired look. This will protect your hair from fly aways, a common side effect of humid weather.

For curly hair, after preparing your hair with product, twist your curls into place, allowing the curls to air dry. Then lightly tussle them with an anti-humectant pomade. 

Every 6-8 Weeks…

Damage is, unfortunately, already a side-effect of unruly hair. Embark on a regime of consistent haircuts every 6 to 8 weeks to help to minimize frizz.

For A Semi-Permanent Solution...

The best way to nip frizz in the bud is with the new Cezanne Perfect Finish Keratin Smoothing Treatment ($350+ at Butterfly Studio Salon).  It’s a new, in-salon treatment that smooths, de-frizzes, and straightens hair with its proprietary blend of keratins, botanical extracts, vitamins and proteins, which change the curl pattern of the hair into a smoother, straighter shape that resists frizz and increases shine.
