Five Frizz Fighting Favorites

Kick your frizz to the curb with these top five products dedicated to smoothing your strands in seconds flat. Some add a silky shine, some a thermal protection barrier, while others repair split ends, but all eliminate the worst FRIZZ you can imagine.

Bain de Terre Anti-Frizz Recovery Complex Shine SerumBain de Terre Anti-Frizz Recovery Complex Shine Serum

As the breakout star of the entire Bain de Terre product line, and one of our best-sellers, this advanced formula serum contains microscopic spheres that slowly release rose hip and evening primrose oils to restore luster and impart a high gloss to dull, dry, overworked hair. This anti-frizz recovery complex instantly repairs the outer cuticle layers of the hair to mend and prevent split ends. Encapsulated melanin, a natural pigment, provides stronger color protection against damage and fading.

How I like to use it: Use a few drops of Bain de Terre Shine Serum on wet hair to restore the hair’s natural luster and repair the dryness and split ends, then a few more drops on dry hair to finish your style and add a hi-gloss shine.

Bonus points: The infused essential oils will leave your hair with a healthy smooth shine that’s never greasy, and you just may wonder where all your split ends have gone! See more Bain de Terre.

Davines Momo Anti-Frizz FluidDavines Momo Moisturizing Anti-Frizz Protective Fluid

Eliminate frizz and restore the richness and shine back to your hair with Davines Momo Moisturizing Anti-Frizz Protective Fluid. This super moisturizing fluid keeps curly and frizzy hair soft and smooth by counteracting the effects of humidity with the perfect mix of botanicals and hydration agents. Rhizobian Gum moisturizes and adds natural body, Elder Extract creates a protective barrier, and Grapefruit Seed Extract provides pollution protection. If that isn’t enough, Davines also added a dose of Jojoba oil, Silicones, and Mica to restore the softness and shine dry, frizzy hair so desperately lacks.

How I like to use it: It’s is a superb accompaniment to the Momo Shampoo and Conditioner of course. (But it also works just as well on its own for you Davines newbies).

What to expect: You can Eliminate frizz with a capital “E”. Yes, I said E-L-I-M-I-N-A-T-E frizz. See more Davines.


Frederic Fekkai Glossing CreamFrederic Fekkai Olive Oil Glossing Cream

Frederic Fekkai Glossing Cream with Pure Olive Oil transforms frizzy, dull hair into silky, hydrated strands.

Specially formulated to provide continuous hydration and add a glossy, brilliant shine, this Glossing Cream will leave hair noticeably radiant and silky smooth. Added sunscreens protect hair color from fading caused by UV rays with added UVA/UVB inhibitors.

How I like to use it: A little all over your head before blow drying, then rub a tiny bit afterwards to really bring out the shine.

What I love: This potent potion packs a pow, giving you a hi-gloss shine in a sheer lightweight texture. The sheerness is a total plus as I tend to be heavy handed with product application. See more Frederic Fekkai.
