16 Ways to Fight Frizzy Hair

We love summer, but summer doesn’t always love us back. There are sunburns, bug bites, weird tan lines and the worst of them all: frizzy hair. Whether it be adorning our hair with tactfully tied scarves or teasing it until our volume is impressively in place, we’ve come up with 16 humidity-masking hair tricks that will fight the frizz.

1. Scarf Headband ($16): Whether you’re wearing your hair up or down, a scarf headband is a convenient way to add both flair and polish to your look while taming those little flyaway hairs.

2. Keep Backcombing: Since our hair is virtually always up during the summertime, teasing your crown is a perfect way to add some volume to an updo. (via Cara Loren)

3. Coconut Oil: Towel dry your hair, rub in a little bit of coconut oil, and roll it into a bun; when you pull it out, you’ve got a really lovely dried wave and the coconut oil seals it. (via The Every Girl)

4. Wear Headbands: With this hippy headband you can incorporate some festival style, stay cool and keep your hair out of your face. (via Brit + Co)

5. Rinse Cold: Right before you get out of the shower, blast your strands with the coldest water you can stand. This step will help seal the cuticle, helping to put major frizz like this in its place. (via Bella Sugar)

6. Deep Condition: An intense conditioner is a first start for hair rehab; for best results, apply the conditioner, put on a plastic cap and wrap with a towel for five to 10 minutes. (via Free People)

7. Fine Hair Help: If you have fine hair like Jennifer Aniston, try washing it every two to three days when it’s humid and stay away from heavy conditioners so hair can maintain its body without looking greasy and oily. (via Daily Makeover)

8. DIY Hair Serum: Seal your hair before and after with a moisturizing serum to get things completely under control before you venture outside. (via Brit + Co)

9. Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse: The acidity of apple cider vinegar does wonders to smooth frizzy hair, and as an added plus gives it a great healthy shine. Pour it over your hair after shampooing and then rinse with cold water to achieve the ulimate shine. (via Free People)

10. Embrace The Curls: Sometimes it just looks better to let nature take over and enhance your natural waves with a bit of beach spray and serum on the ends. (via How Does She)

11. Texturize and Spray: To manage thick hair like Leona Lewis, use texturizing creams and sprays to help create more movement and give locks a frizz-free shine. (via The Daily Makeover)

12. DIY Strand Strengthener: The proteins in gelatin can help repair damaged hair making it less prone to frizz, so put that Jello to good use with this hair mask recipe! (via Redbook Mag)

13. Clear Mascara: Instead of weighing your hair down with heavy oils, tame flyaways around your root area with a clear mascara wand: just brush, smooth, and go! (via Byrdie)

14. Frizz For Natural Hair: Gals with natural hair like Jordan Sparks should try to avoid alcohol-based products as they tend to dry out hair, which can lead to frizz.

15. Skip Shampoo: Shampoo can dry out your your hair’s natural oils, so every other time you wash your hair, try skipping shampoo, or using half of what you would normally use.  (via Byrdie)

16. Pony Love: If all else fails, remember ponytails are your friend and just pull everything back into a perky updo! (via Brit + Co)
