The 16 Best Anti-Frizz Shampoos, So You Can Actually Go Outside This Summer
Frizz—you can't live with it, you can't step outside in the South without it. It seems like no matter your hair type or texture, or the time of day, it's always there making us look frazzled and haywired and maybe an inch taller, even when we painstakingly gave ourselves a blowout just minutes before. Going for a light walk? Not an option. Sitting outside with your coffee in the middle of June? Nope. Your morning commute? Busted.
While we can't change the humidity levels, we can help you out with a list of the best frizz-fighting, shine-enhancing shampoos on the market, from drugstore steals to the hard stuff. If you're just mildly concerned about flyaways, something with keratin will do the trick and give you silkier strands instantly. If you're dealing with major frizz, you're going to want something like Living Proof's patented no-frizz blend or Bumble and bumble's oil-infused line. Curly girls, we have you covered, too.
Here are the best anti-frizz shampoos to set you up for success this summer.
