Although it’s technically summer here in the UK, the weather has been pretty unpredictable. One minute, it’s warm and sunny and the next, the rain is pouring and the air feels thick and muggy. When your hair is dry, damaged, or chemically-treated, the outer layer of the hair strand becomes raised, as opposed to lying flat and smooth. During the summer, the hair often seeks moisture from the air around it, which is why humidity causes the hair to swell and turn frizzy.
All of this is a recipe for disaster if you’re prone to frizzy hair, and short of wearing a hat until the crisper autumn weather arrives, you’re going to want to sort it out. That’s why we’ve curated this list of five products which are your best friend when it comes to beating the frizz, this summer:
This anti-frizz cream from Nine Yards can be used on both wet and dry hair, during styling, to keep the hair smooth and frizz-free. Ingredients include argan oil and sunflower seed extract to control flyaway hair, keep hair straight and give you a sleek finish without weighing your hair down or making it look greasy.
Olaplex No.6 Bond Smoother is a leave-in reparative styling cream which strengthens, hydrates, moisturises and speeds up blow dry times while smoothing and eliminating frizz and flyaways for up to 72 hours. It is highly concentrated and doesn’t weigh hair down, and you only need to use a few drops, once every three days, so a little of this formula goes a long way!
This spray from Color Wow has been specifically formulated to control hair when the humidity is high. Unlike typical treatments, this lightweight spray guarantees not to leave hair greasy or weighed down, leaving you with enviably smooth tresses that are free from frizz for days. It should be applied on damp hair and activated by blow drying, to give you a home humidity-proofing treatment that protects hair for up to 72 hours.
GHD hair tools are famous for giving a finish which is second to none, so it stands to reason that they would release products which are equally as effective. GHD Dramatic Ending Smooth and Finish Serum is a lightweight serum that instantly smooths and adds an extra boost of shine. It can be used in all hair types and works to maximise sleek styles by helping to eliminate frizz and quickly delivering healthier-looking hair.
This multi-benefit spray from L’Oreal doesn’t just help to combat frizz – it performs no fewer than TEN functions, to get your hair looking its best. As well as being an anti-frizz treatment, the treatment milk promises to give your hair protection against heat up to 230°C/450°F degrees, shine, softness, smoothness of hair fibre, detangling, better blow-drying, hydration, anti-breakage AND anti-split ends! We honestly don’t know if we’ve ever met a harder working product than this one.
