Frequently Asked Questions
How do I use frizz products?
They’re all different, but most are applied either just out of the shower on damp hair before styling or as a touch-up product after styling. Go for a leave-in if you’re looking to treat damp hair, or a serum or balm if you’re focused on post-styling flyaways.
Should I also use anti-frizz shampoo and conditioner?
You definitely can’t go wrong with a frizz-fighting shower regimen. Look for smoothing shampoos and conditioners, which help hydrate and smooth hair before you even style. They almost always result in a much-easier styling process.
What if I use too much frizz product?
Don’t panic: It happens to the best of us. If re-washing isn’t an option, grab a dry shampoo and spray it wherever you’re feeling like there’s too much product. It’ll balance out the oil and help hide any extra residue until you can wash it out.
