9 Steps to Frizz-Free Hair

I hated getting frizzy hair, it made me want to spend all day straightening it to try and tame the frizz which would only make it worse in the long run. After trying just about every product and hack I could find, here’s everything you need to know to get frizz-free hair and transform your damaged locks to make them smooth and shiny again.

9 steps to frizz free hair

Use The Right Shampoo and Conditioner

For me, L’Oréal hair products have always worked really well and I often switch between the different ones they sell but recently I’ve stuck with the L’Oréal Elvive Clay Rebalancing Shampoo because it works really well for my hair type. It keeps my roots from getting oily but still makes my ends soft which is perfect for me. Then instead of using the matching conditioner, I use the Nutri-Gloss Shine Conditioner which you can seriously see and feel the difference in shine after the first time you use it!

STOP Using a Towel!

One of favourite ways to reduce frizz that I learnt not that long ago was to stop drying your hair with a towel and use an old t-shirt instead. Towels leave your hair dry, frizzy and full of split ends, but a t-shirt is so much more gentle that it doesn’t damage your hair. I was never one to believe in hacks like this but after trying it I will never go back to rubbing my hair with a rough towel to dry it.

I use an old cotton band t-shirt that I spent way too much money on at a concert 6 years ago and haven’t worn since and I’ve finally found the perfect use for it! It’s less aggressive that a towel and keeps in the moisture so much better for smoother hair.

9 steps to frizz free hair

Heat vs No Heat

A lot of people will tell you that the key to getting frizz-free locks is to stop using heat on them because it damages it, so if you can, limit the amount of time you use a hairdryer and straighteners/curlers and go for the natural look instead. But, if you’re like me and straighteners are your best friend, then below are the ways I use heat but still reduce any frizz it might cause.

Heat Protectant Spray

For someone that uses heat on their hair every day, I have always used heat protectant, and a lot of it, and hair dressers have said that they wouldn’t be able to tell I straighten it so often so that must mean that they work! I’ve been loving the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Spray because I heard a lot of people mention how good keratin was for your hair and I wanted to give it a go and I’ve been loving it ever since. Plus, the fact that it’s cheap makes my bank account a lot happier!

Use An Anti-Frizz Hairdryer 

There are so many different types of hairdryers out there and last year I got myself the TRESemmé Power Dryer that’s designed to smoothen your hair with ionic conditioning technology, and while I’m not completely sure how it works, it does leave my hair feeling more conditioned than hair dryers I’ve used before. Without a hair dryer, my hair goes very puffy and not so nice to look at so this is my best option to use heat while limiting the damage.

Don’t Go Overboard With Straighteners

If you’re the type of person who doesn’t feel right without super straight hair then I completely understand you. I looked into which straighteners to buy before I bought them to make my money worth it. For a long time I used the Remington straighteners which I did really like and felt that they made my hair look shinier and smoother after I used them, and for the price they’re definitely worth it.

Then recently I jumped on the GHD hype and purchased the GHD IV Styler or the Original Styler as they’re also known and I really think that they’ve made a difference. They don’t snag on your hair like some straighteners do which leaves your hair a lot sleeker. The thing I love about these is that they don’t get as hot as some cheaper straighteners but still give great results, so less damage and still great hair which I think is worth the price since I use them as curlers too.

9 Steps to frizz-free hair

Brush Your Hair From The Bottom

Grab your Tangle Teaser, because no other hair brush compares from what I’ve experienced, and start brushing the ends out first. This way you can get rid of any knots a lot easier without pulling on your hair and causing split ends. Then gradually start to work your way up. I find this technique makes brushing my hair a lot less painful and ultimately helps protect it.

Serums Are Your Best Friend

I don’t know what I was doing before I discovered serums. I switch between the John Frieda Frizz Ease Extra Strength one and the L’Oréal Smooth-Intense Anti-Frizz Serum and they both just get rid of those annoying fly-aways and give your hair some extra shine.

And Finally…Grab Your Toothbrush!

This might sound strange, but for anyone who has tried it I guarantee they swear buy it. So, grab your old toothbrush and spray it with some hairspray, then simply brush it over baby hairs and fly-aways to instantly get rid of them. For days when my hair is up and my baby hairs are sticking out everywhere it’s a lifesaver.

    Thank you for sharing this tips and I love the toothbrush trick too its always a life saver.

    • July 19, 2018 / 2:54 pm

      Yeah I honestly don’t know what I’d do without the toothbrush trick most days!

  3. July 20, 2018 / 3:05 am

    Love these tips! I’m going to try the toothbrush! I love that, I always have those baby hairs and HATE them! I also need to try not drying my hair with a towel! Who knew!

    • July 20, 2018 / 7:42 am

      Thanks! I know, when I first tried them I thought it was really weird and now I live by them!

  4. July 20, 2018 / 8:25 am

    Hi Beth! These are all really awesome tips. Some of them I use personally so I know they are effective. The toothbrush trick is amazing! I must try that; I have a ton of baby hair always sticking out like horns. lol. Thanks for sharing!

    • July 21, 2018 / 1:19 pm

    I need to try that t-shirt drying method. I already use my tangle teezer and brush starting from mid-shaft to ends. It makes such a difference!

  6. July 21, 2018 / 8:38 am

    Your hair is gorgeous! I totally didn’t know that about using a towel! Admittedly, I don’t get VERY frizzy hair and I rarely style it anyway (laziness mainly) xx

    • July 21, 2018 / 9:44 am

      Thank you! You’re lucky, if I don’t style it it looks awful! xx

    I definitely need to try the t-shirt thing and the toothbrush tip! When I’m out (without my toothbrush) I take a tiny amount of hand soap in ladies bathrooms and rub it in my dry hands then smooth my fly-aways with my palms < it really works too 🙂 x

    • July 21, 2018 / 11:38 am

      That’s a good idea I need to try that!x

    Great tips! My hair tends to get really frizzy when it is humid out, so I try to avoid putting heat on it at all costs. I have never heard of using a t-shirt instead of a towel after the shower, but I will definitely be giving it a try! Thanks for sharing 🙂

      Thanks! Yeah they’ve all really worked for me x

  10. July 22, 2018 / 3:21 pm

    My hair just stays static-y. (Is that a word?) I’ll have to try some of these tricks and see if it helps that too.

    • July 22, 2018 / 6:36 pm

      Haha it should be a word if it’s not! They’ve really helped me so I hope they help you too 🙂

  11. July 22, 2018 / 6:03 pm

    I haven’t heard of that hairdryer before, so I’m going to have to check that out. Great post!

      Thanks! Yeah after trying a few that hairdryer seems to be the best for me to keep my hair less frizzy!

  12. July 23, 2018 / 9:19 am

    Great tips! To be honest sometimes I just have to embrace the frizz, I have way too much hair to be stress about it all the time haha xx

      Yeah I know, having long hair is annoying but I still can’t cut it! xx

  13. July 23, 2018 / 10:38 am

    The tip about using a T-shirt to dry your hair instead of a towel is so helpful. I had never thought about it before but now that your said it, it completely makes sense that it would be more gentle!

    • July 23, 2018 / 9:09 pm

      Yeah I’d never heard about it until I read it somewhere not long ago and it’s honestly one of my favourite hair care things to do now!

  14. July 23, 2018 / 6:59 pm

    I have the world’s frizziest hair and literally nothing can smooth it — I’ve tried drying my hair with t-shirts, serums, giving up heat, every anti-frizz product on the market and nothing works, The only thing I haven’t tried is brushing my hair from the bottom up like you suggested so it’s next on the list!

    Thanks for sharing! x

      Yeah sometimes the hacks just don’t work on certain types of hair which can be annoying but good luck! If it doesn’t work then embrace the frizz haha! x

  15. These are great tips, Beth! My hair is out of control in the summer from the humidity, so it is a challenge! I didn’t know t-shirts work better than towels–will give this a try. I use a very small amount of olive oil on damp hair and that seems to help me a little. Thanks for the post!

      Ooo I’ve never tried olive oil, I feel like it would make my hair feel really greasy! Yeah the t-shirt is a life saver for me! Thank you 🙂 x

  16. This is a really great post, your hair is lovely btw, I also don’t know how I ever managed without using a serum! The t-shirt trick makes so much sense I might give that a try 🙂

    • August 3, 2018 / 9:09 pm

      Thank you! I used to hate my hair colour but I’m starting to like it haha! I know, serum is such a life-changer x

  17. August 13, 2018 / 6:10 pm

    T-shirt trick is brilliant! I have these frizzy baby hairs that drive me nuts. I’ve started using Ouai oil and it’s gotten sorta better…but going to do the t-shirt thing now!

    • August 14, 2018 / 9:08 am

      Yeah the t shirt thing really helped strengthen my hair again over time! Ooo I need to try Ouai oil!

      • August 14, 2018 / 9:24 am

        I love it! I got a sample in my Ipsy glam bag and have been obsessed.

  18. October 16, 2018 / 12:49 am

    Your hair looks great! I like the toothbrush tip 😀
