For us frizzy-haired ladies, it’s an uphill battle to find the best products to prevent, treat, or eliminate frizz without causing product build-up, flat hair, or an oily after-effect.
We’ve finally found the best hair products that can help you get rid of frizz now, in these hot summer months, and beyond (it’s not only seasonal, after all). You can mix and match for your ultimate frizz-fighting cocktail, or you can pick and choose based on your styling preferences.

Bumble and bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil
Aquis Lisse Luxe Hair Towel
Buy It: $30; sephora.com
Many people (us included, until recently) don’t think about something as simple as a towel as a contributing factor to frizzy hair, but using a micro-fiber towel like this one will cut down your blow-dry time and fight frizz, thanks to its ultra-thin fibers. Your course, run-of-the-mill bath towel isn’t doing your hair any favors.
Kevin Murphy Easy.Rider Anti-Frizz Crème
Buy It: $40; amazon.com
Kevin Murphy is a favorite brand of hair stylists because the products are unafraid to do as they say—you’ll get a result from these, no nonsense allowed. This cream controls frizz and gives flexible definition, and it smells amazing.
Ouidad Advanced Climate Control Heat & Humidity Gel
Buy It: $26; sephora.com
The name is a mouthful because the product packs a punch. If you have some natural wave or curl, this super-light gel will give you some body and definition, while taming that frizz down. It’s hard to find a balance between embracing your natural texture and being overcome with frizz, but that’s the goal of this product.
Bumble and bumble Don’t Blow It Hair Styler
Buy It: $31; sephora.com
Another core problem leading to frizz? Using heat to style your hair. It only makes your hair more susceptible to humidity and frizz, and we all know that any heat damages your hair anyway, which also leads to more frizz. This product lets you air-dry your hair without it looking boring, frizzy, or full of flyaways. People are loving this stuff.
Carol’s Daughter Hair Milk Leave-In Moisturizer
Buy It: $12; target.com
When it comes to frizz, prevention is the most important step. This nourishing leave-in product combines ultra-conditioning ingredients such as shea butter, soybean oil, agave nectar, jojoba oil, and more. The result: your new go-to for the most frizz-inducing days.
L’Oreal Paris Advanced Haircare Lustrous Oil Serum
Buy It: $6; target.com
This oil treatment will make your hair healthy, shiny, and bouncy—while fighting frizz—when used after the shower, though you can use it when your hair is dry as well. It helps transform dry or lifeless hair in an instant, and it’s cheaper than most good oil products (and has received thousands of great reviews to boot).
Moroccanoil Tourmaline Ceramic Hair Dryer
Buy It: $220; nordstrom.com
This dryer is magical—when the hairdresser first used this on my hair, I was stunned by how soft, shiny, and frizz-free my hair looked without any further styling. While the price is a little daunting, it's worth the investment if you're a regular blow-dryer and are prone to frizz, especially with the added heat.
John Frieda Frizz Ease Extra Strength 6-Effects Serum
Buy It: $8; amazon.com
This brand has literally built itself on its ability to help us fight frizz and humidity, so it’s no surprise it has a multi-purpose serum that has amassed great reviews across the web.
