All About Anti-Frizz
What are the Best Anti-Frizz Hair Products?
Anti-frizz products are specially formulated to help you tame frizz and keep your locks looking smooth, silky, and manageable. Frizzy hair can affect any hair type, but it’s a common issue for those with curly hair or damaged hair. It happens when your hair is dry and in need of moisture which makes the cuticles rough. When it is exposed to moisture, such as humidity in the air or from hot styling tools, the outer layer of the cuticle swells and causes frizz.
The best way to combat frizz is to make sure it is properly conditioned and hydrated. Check out these popular frizzy hair products available at Hairhouse:

How to Stop Hair from Frizzing in Humidity?
Protecting hair from humidity in Australia can seem like a never-ending battle, but there are some things you can do to help keep frizz to a minimum:
1. Start by using a shampoo and conditioner that’s full of conditioning agents to moisturise dry and damaged hair. Try Matrix Total Results Moisture Me Rich Shampoo, Nak Hair Hydrate Shampoo, or evo The Therapist Hydrating Shampoo.
2. Next, always apply a heat protectant before using any hot styling tools, including curlers , straighteners , hot rollers and hot brushes. These products work like a shield between your hair and direct heat which will greatly reduce drying and frizz. They can also protect against humidity and UV damage. Try evo Welder Heat Protection, Mermade Hair Mist, or KMS ThermaShape Shaping Blow Dry.
3. Smoothing hair with high humidity hair products is also an effective way to tame frizz. Look for leave-in conditioners , serums , masks and treatments that are made with nourishing oils to deeply condition hair and protect against humidity. Try O&M Frizzy Logic Serum with argan oil, coconut oil, and macadamia oil for intense hydration, shine and softness.
How do You Use Anti-Frizz Hair Products?
Anti-frizz products for hair range from smoothing serums and oils to leave-on conditioners and moisturising shampoos with frizz control properties. The type of product you choose will depend on your hair type. Generally, hair treatments will be applied to clean, damp hair, combed through from root to tips to ensure even coverage, and left in to work its magic.
You can also apply them to dry hair before styling for a silky finish or to smooth down frizz throughout the day as needed. Check the instructions on your individual Hairhouse product for details.
What Hair Products Should I Use for Frizzy Hair?
Developing the right hair care routine for your hair will help fight off frizz and keep your hair healthy and manageable. Parabens, silicones, and sulphates can strip hair of its natural oils and leave it dry and prone to breakage and unwanted frizz. You’ll want to add a good sulphate-free and paraben-free shampoo and conditioner to your hair care routine to maintain your hair’s moisture and promote strength and elasticity.
Next, choose a heat protectant product to shield your cuticles from heat damage that can lead to frizziness and make it dry and unmanageable. Finish off with a regular hair treatment that’s rich in oils and high in vitamins and fatty acids. This can include hair creams like L’Oreal Serie Expert Pro Keratin Liss Unlimited, a spray like De Lorenzo Elements Afterglow, or an oil-like Redken All-Soft Argan-6 Oil that’s packed with omega 6 for intense conditioning and shine.
